“Hadsten House”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

The room was simple but nice. Good beds, ample pillows. Located at the end of the main road, but still close to everything. Unheated pool. Decent buffet but, there was no bread both times I went. Also, there is a corner store at the end of the parking lot for snacks, water, etc. I would consider renting here again if I return to Solvang.

Room Tip: The onsite restaurant was a little pricey for the type of food served but, it tasted good.

We stayed mid week for $99. This price included a buffet breakfast with hot and cold choices in an attractive restaurant. Our room was nicely appointed and plenty big. We found the WiFi signal in our room to be too weak to use. In the restaurant and lobby the signal was fine. Unfortunately we had over zealous neighbors downstairs who engaged in highly vocal sex (I assume) at 5 AM. What's wrong with quiet enjoyment, at least when you're on the road.

All in all a good value and we would stay again.

Visiting Solvang for a long weekend and chose the Hadsten House because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We can confirm that this is a wonderful place to stay. It is clean and comfortable, with spacious rooms, great pool/spa area, and a pretty decent hot breakfast. The office staff were efficient but not outgoing. We would definitely recommend to friends.

Looking over the lodging choices in already-overpriced Solvang, this is the best deal. If you are retired like us, try to stay mid-week when they really cut prices. The renovated motel look and feel is suitable for Solvang and the rooms are clean and just fine but not fancy. TV and internet worked fine. Their primary attribute is the wonderful restaurant and the high-quality breakfasts they serve. Try a made-to-order omelet. Staff was very helpful and a management person was usually around in case of problems. Access off Hwy 246 can be tricky due to layout and visibility problems. You are in walking distance of most of Solvang, depending on how you do on the sidewalk...

Bottom line: If you have to stay in Solvang, Hadsten House is your best bet for many reasons. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Oh BTW stop at a convenience store on the way into town for snacks and beverages you would want at the motel. There aren't a lot of reliable choices in Solvang for such notions.

Room Tip: Get a room towards the back, then you are farther from noisy families and some of their rigs that ho...

The service was friendly and helpful. The rooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable. Not your usual crummy motel decor. Very upscale and tasteful. A great value within easy walking distance to all of the shops in Solvang. Serve an excellent breakfast they have taken the old style park in front of your room motel and transitioned it into a well thought out nicely furnished treasure

Room Tip: Pick a room at the rear they will be quieter

Let me start this review out by saying the Hadsten House is probably one of the best lodging options in Solvang. Unfortunately, that's not saying much because the lodging in Solvang is terrible. Most everything is old, run down, and way over priced. For whatever reason, demand is high and everybody can command a premium, regardless of the quality of their rooms. No one has much incentive to invest in their properties because they can bring in money hand over first, even with sub-par accommodations. Sooner or later, though, demand is going to fall as the baby boomers start traveling less and Solvang finds itself still catering to a declining clientele. But I digress...

Hadsten House is a solid place to stay in Solvang, but at it's heart, it's basically just a nicely renovated old motel. The rooms are small and uninspiring, and you can't quite escape the feeling that you're staying in... well, a glorified motel. On the plus side, it's clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the free breakfast was great. But that's about where it stops. When you think about the $200+ dollars per night it costs, I can't help but think of the many much much nicer hotels I've stayed at in NYC, San Diego, Chicago for a fraction of the cost. So for me, the value proposition just isn't there. Sadly, you will be hard pressed to find better in town.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Hadsten House for two nights and we absolutely loved it! It was very nice and clean. We loved everything about the room. We will definitely only stay here on our next visit.
