Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JEK168 Good value and comfortable
After long-distance drive from Monterey, we felt tired and hungry when we arrived the hotel at 8:30pm. Check-in process is welcome and efficient. We were surprised at our huge guest room with high ceiling and great countryside view. Breakfast was fresh and okay. Location is convenient for downtown walking tour. Will absolutely recommend to my friends who have a road trip along the Pacific Coast Highway and plan to stop by the small charming Danish town.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigMerc King Bed Loft Room a plus
This room's layout worked great for us. My wife and I were joined by a lifelong friend for a trip to Solvang. The loft gave us privacy without the need for or expense of separate rooms. Stairs are a bit narrow but more than adequate and everything else was terrific.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ron T. Nice comfortable stay but needs a little polish
Overall, I enjoyed my stay. The room had a nice layout but a repair to the ceiling that appeared to have resulted from a water leak was glaring. Poorly patched and not even fully closed up. From an otherwise excellent first impression, this really drew the eye and made the room seem cheaper than it really was.
The breakfast was convenient but I've had better. The feel of it was very packaged. The omelettes were clearly made in large quantities and reheated. The automatic pancake machine looked like a printer and the pancakes were too chewy. The "make your own waffle" machines provide a much nicer dining experience although I can understand how they can slow up a line when people don't understand how to use them.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marcel the Monkey Less than stellar service by management
We have stayed at this hotel many times in the past and have had satisfactory experiences. The front desk staff was less than caring, but did rectify the problems with keys, etc. Parking was atrocious (not enough space), rate was excessive compared to value, and overall hotel experience was poor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SKierkegaard Good value
Very helpful and courteous staff. Pleasant surroundings, except traffic on Mission Road / Hwy 254. If you are in a room that faces the street, be prepared for lots of traffic noise, well into the night. Holiday Inn could minimize this traffic noise by adding dual-pane windows on these rooms. As it was, even the single pane windows on our room were not sealed properly. No wonder it was noisy.
Still, it was a pleasant enough stay. The location is easily within walking distance of all of downtown Solvang, its parks and shops.
The included breakfast was just OK. There is insufficient space to seat guests at peak times, and the food was mediocre.
