I did a lot of reading up on hotels in Solvang, and The Hamlet Inn definitely has some of the best rates in town. This is not a cheap area to stay, so this hotel is a deal.
The Location I would give a perfect rating to. It's right across the street from the best bakery in town (Olsen's) and one of the few restaurants open late (Solvang Brewing Co.), and it's on the main street of Solvang.
The bathroom area is very home-like, but in a good way. The water pressure is great. The shower is not huge, but not small, either. It was good.
The bed was very comfy, as well. Good, fluffly pillows. The TV was mounted on the wall and there was a wide selection of channels. Free bike rentals, too! When we got there, the owner gave us a complimentary bottle of wine because it was our honeymoon and two wine glasses, which was so sweet :) The maid service was fantastic. They came no matter what time of day we left the room and once we had forgotten to remove our night-time clothes from the bed, and they folded them neatly for us :)
Downsides? There was really no other room decor. It isn't a hotel room you would be likely to photograph. Just two little bedside tables, a chair, and a little fridge underneath the closet area. No microwave, although we didn't ask for one, so you might be able to get one if you ask. I didn't mind that the area was sparse. It felt homey. The internet connection was terrible, but that seemed to be a problem with all of Solvang - the signals just aren't that great.
I was overall super satisfied with the price and the experience. If you're looking for a luxurious hotel experience, this isn't the place. If you're looking for a nice, clean, cheap, cozy place to stay and sleep while you're enjoying the rest of Solvang, this is the right place to go.
