Bottom line is that this is an average motel with a kitchy paint job. Your door will face a parking lot, and you'll hear everything that goes on in the parking lot. Fortunately it's Solvang, not much in the way of noise happens after 10pm unless you're at the bar across the street. The staff is friendly, the location is great, the bikes are a nice addition but the rooms are a great place to sleep off wine tastings, and nothing much else. This is definitely not a place where you stay to stay in the motel, but it does the job of sheltering just fine. I'm not sure if it was just our room, but the shower situation is somewhat funky, there is no lip between the shower floor and actual bathroom floor, so prepare to get things wet. That said, I'm really just nitpicking, if you're visiting Solvang on a budget, this is a great option. Things are clean, and the people are nice, just don't expect it to be a resort. You're paying Chevy money and getting a Chevy, not a Cadillac.
