Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ronsterman Big room, bad lighting.
While it's a good value and we had a very large room, the available lights were downright stingy. Only one night table with one dim lamp between the two beds (I guess Holiday Inn guests don't read). No light over the sitting area near the big window, even though there was a sofa there. No light to see what's in the closet. Had to turn on the bathroom light and hope some of it illuminated the closet.
Next time I'll bring a couple of my own lamps.
The included buffet breakfast was ample and good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jfskldjf OK but Wifi an issue
Overall, my one night stay was ok. The staff could use some better customer service training. For example, a couple who checked in before us was offered complimentary water without asking. Regrettably, they did not do the same for us. The staff could have done a better job greeting us at check-in but that people-first focus wasn't there. It appeared as if they were just doing their job.
The wifi is a significant issue at this Holiday Inn. It didn't work with any of my Apple devices, including my ipad or my Mac. While I am glad it was complimentary, I wasn't able to take advantage of it because of technical issues. One of their staff (who spent 20 minutes in my room trying to address the problem) told me they always had issues with Macs so the wifi system should be evaluated, if not overhauled. If not addressed, this will probably be my last stay there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BCDD Interesting city; great staff.
Staff were super friendly & helpful. There are stairs to navigate from the parkade before you can access the elevator which is a pain with luggage so best to take your bags in via the lobby. However, hotel staff were quick to offer assistance, which was nice. We were there in late October and the town basically shuts down early evening so food options were super limited for arrival after 8pm. Despite being an older facility, the room decor was modern and the room was clean & spacious.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KBVF Loved the hoel overall!!
Great location in Solvang; keep your car parked at Holiday Inn and walk throughout the town. We chose a room with 2 queen beds which were very comfortable. Very quiet above us and around us. Somewhat busy traffic at night - we faced the main street, however, it wasn't too loud to sleep! Wonderful breakfast each day and staff was VERY FRIENDLY! We plan to reserve a spot next year!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Burbank06 Good value and location, not lap of luxury
There for one night to attend a Santa Ynez event. The staff was great and all went as planned with hotel, which adequately met our needs. Our suite was noisy near the elevator and the room was too warm but the AC unit was very noisy so it was the lesser of two evils. Sofa bed not very comfortable and pillows all too hard. Breakfast choices very meat and gravy-centric, coffee only so-so. Price was good but it was a relief to get home.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by perkie44 More than we expected!
Happy to learn we could stay without the two night minimum since that was impossible for us. We found the room spacious and wish we would have had time to enjoy the spacious terrace adjoining our room. Very nice amenities and a very pleasant staff.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dudi Park view
Great location, nice, functional room as expected from the Holiday Inn, however room with a view to the “park” is no more than a view to next door back yard bush, and I thought it’s going to be a golf course view, at least, ooh well.
