If your primary goal is to do Solvang on the cheap (And this is the cheapest place you can find, then this place is for you. The location is excellent - you are right in the heart of town, walking distance to plenty, plus they have free bikes - but the accommodations are lacking. The bathroom towels were like what you get at the gym to wipe down equipment, the blankets on the bed seemed dingy and worn, and the carpet was questionable. Though the room was spacious, there was virtually no furniture (literally just a bed, two tiny 8" square bedside tables, and a chair along side a counter, and a TV mounted on the wall. Light came from 2 exposed bulbs hanging from wires.). I never would have thought this was a problem, but then we realized we had no place to set any of our stuff or put any of our clothes. And the carpet wasn't really that clean, so...it was just weird. Also, this place was SO noisy on account of thin walls and an odd layout. It was so bad that at one point, we thought there was an upstairs and someone was running around up there, but in fact, there was no upstairs, and I think it was just people in the neighboring room walking around!
All in all, I wish we had paid a bit more to stay elsewhere, but it is fine if you are really on a budget and don't plan to be in the room that often.
