The place is on the dated side... was clean... breakfast was average. Breakfast service was also average. It was fine for a single night on the road. It seemed to be priced a little high for what you got.

The hotel is build in the typical "fake-danish" style of the town (which is good), and is located right in the middle of the interesting area; just outside the hotel you find all the shops, restaurants and bakeries.

Clean room, nice staff, no noise. Breakfast was good, with lots of danish pastries to grab. But not a lot of tables to sit. I would guess that during peak season the must be a lot of problems to sit during breakfast. It has a nice pool area, better than usual.

Stayed at the King Frederik Inn for a couple of days in late November 2013. Rate was just over a hundred dollars per night. Although it's called an "Inn"... it's more like a motel in appearance and amenities. Pros are that it is in a great location, wifi worked great, and good selection of television channels. Cons are that the motel is quite aging, some people go on about such an "oustanding value"... I found that the rates were quite expensive for what you get. There is a limited breakfast (all you get is coffee, danish, muffin, juice). I didn't have a fridge or microwave in the room. There is some street noise as it's located right on the main drag in Solvang and some rooms are quite close to the road. Small rooms. Maybe it's because Solvang is a tourist town and things are more expensive anyway. I just think a typical motel of this level should be around 50 to 60 dollars per night, not over a hundred. Beds comfortable and adqeuate pillows and hot water. Staff that I dealt with were all friendly and helpful, and if you forget anything they have razors, shaving cream, etc if you ask which is nice. I also found parking to be adqeuate even though they were sold out on the nights I stayed. Lots of pros and cons.... so I would give this motel an average rating... adequaate for solo or business travel perhaps but I would not recommend for couples if you want to impress anyone, or families requiring any amount of space.

Room Tip: If possible, ask for a room away from the main road, it should be quieter. Also a ground floor leve...

The check in time isn't until 3pm which is kind of late but the room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very nice and very clean. The towels are very nice and think. The beds were way too soft and not very comfortable for me. The location is the best. They have a microwave and a refrigerator in the room too but the refrige was loud. I turned it off and it was silent.

The rooms are basic but surprisingly comfortable, with comfortable beds and aircon, and the location is without question the best in town. Free wifi provided on request, which puts it ahead of some much fancier establishments. Very good value for money and highly recommended.

We just spent a few nights there...
Bed was ok but not great
Rooms looked old and could use some updating
Only one towel when we checked in
No shampoo and/or conditioner...
There are lots of places to stay in Solvang, will stay somewhere else next time...

Variety of hotel options in Solvang, this one is convenient for walking all around the town as it's so central. We had two identical rooms next to each other, the pictures and review relate to 121.

Spacious room with work area, good wired internet and separate bathroom, we didn't get the wi-fi operational on any of 3 devices between the two rooms. The accommodation block is across the parking area from the main building and pool, with parking in front of your own door with direct access from the parking area.

Breakfast is good and self service in a small room by reception, be prepared to take it on the supplied trays to your room as space there is very limited.

Staff were very polite and efficient on arrival and departure, I would stay there again if in the area.
