Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ching Excellent Hotel Stay
We stayed one night in this hotel and me and my husband will definitely come back again. The room upgrade was great, clean, comfortable bed and a good hot free breakfast included.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nfinitydg Great Stay at the Holiday Inn Express with Break Fast
This was a great stay. We traveled 4 hours to spend the weekend in Solvang, CA. This place is great. It's the last place on the Mission Blvd Road but this location makes it great to walk to the local market across the street. Also there are many restaurants near by. The A/C works great. Clean rooms.
The only little problems we ran into were that the Wifi kept disconnecting from our electronic devices. The cable didn't have a guide so we didn't know what was playing on tv and at what time!
Other than that. This is a great place to stay in.

great stay and good location for access to many shops in Solvang. If you can get upgraded to the 3 bed two store suite and added plus to your stay.

Went to Solvang for the first time an had a pleasant stay at Holiday Inn Express. It was walking distance to everything which made it more worth staying due to Solvang being so packed and hard to find parking. The staff were very friendly and the hotel looked nicely furnished. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. I would definitely stay there again the next time I visit Solvang.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by California Traveller Great Hotel and Location
This hotel was a good stay, easy parking, check-in and amenities. A little messy getting to the room with the luggage involving outside elevators and narrow doors but that's because of the quaint architecture of the place.
The worst aspect by far was the breakfast, of course a feeding frenzy but really lacking quality ingredients. particularly egg, breakfast meats and a sugar free cereal option. This one thing could be significantly imporved and it would make a huge difference.

Hotel is at the end of town in walking distance to see all the sights.
Felt very secure. Indoor garage parking. Room was very good, clean and modern. Happily surprised to see the variety of choices for the breakfast. Well worth the value of staying at the hotel. Will stay there again. Little bit of traffic noise on the street side. Family enjoyed stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ExploringSolvang Comfortable but very expensive and front desk staff isn't very welcoming.
Overall, staying here was an ok experience. The breakfast items were good which is greatly appreciated. The hotel was pretty expensive but it was a last minute booking. It's not exactly a great value though. The front desk staff wasn't very welcoming. They just stared at me when I checked in, no greeting or anything. Not very personable. That was the first impression. Other than that, they were very accommodating in letting us check in a bit early.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by scubajill Great Town
Hotel was very comfortable in the room and lobby. The accessibility to rooms is a bit odd with different doors to go through from the lobby to the elevator to the rooms. Convenient parking underneath the hotel. On the main road but not within walking distance of the cute shops and restaurants in the town.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Larebe73 Worst mattresses
Handicapped accessible room had worst mattresses---they were OLD (where you could feel the metal rods through the top mattress) and very low to ground. Handicapped person cannot even get up from low level of these beds.
Bring your own flashlight, as the lighting is very poor (not even one light anywhere near the room's table and chairs.)
Staff was competent and friendly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Purple lover 130 Lots of room to move around
My family and I had an enjoyable stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Solvang. We rented the room with a loft and it was very spacious. They provided us with a good amount of personal hygiene items that also included make up remover pads! Nice touch! There was also a sign saying to request any additional items at the front desk that we may have forgotten to bring. The staff at the front desk and at the breakfast area were all very nice and always had smiles on their faces. The breakfast area was awesome. There was a good selection of both hot and cold items, coffee, teas, different juices, milk, etc. My family loved the automated pancake maker. The only thing I think should be improved is the interior decor of the room, but especially the carpet. When we first went into the room, you can immediately smell the stale, old smell of the carpet. However, it looks like they are working on this issue because I saw a trash dump with scraps of material that looked like some renovation was in progress. Other than this...we had an enjoyable stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kim D Really nice beds, linens, and shower!
Very comfortable room! Not a typical HIE - this is an older building and kindof in keeping with the architecture of Solvang, i.e. old fashioned Danish. The rooms have sloping ceilings and arched window openings. My partner described our room as a " cute mouse house" and she LOVED IT! She also loved the bed so much she asked how to buy one just like it.
It was everything you'd expect a room to be and need a room to be but at the price we paid, I expected a bit more... "luxe", I guess you'd call it.
Yes, I'd definitely stay here again! It was very convenient for walking to all of downtown Solvang, shopping, dining, and wine-tasting.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sky girl Horrible first impression!
As soon as I walked in to check in there was yelling at the front desk from another guest complaining about being overcharged. Then once my family and I got into our room at around 9:30 pm we get a call from the same girl at the front desk stating she gave us the wrong room and had to move us to another room. After a horrible first impression and being inconvenienced we packed our stuff and carried our babies down to the front desk to get our new key. Instead of an apology I was rudely accused of saying that I told them my last name was XXXXXXXX instead of XXXXX. How absurd and very unprofessional. If this is the kind of people they hire I will never stay at a HIE again! Worst customer service ever!!!!
