All the ammenities are there.. the look is simple and clean, yet trendy. The location of the hotel is smack dab in the middle of the quaint little danish town. The bike rentals were a huge bonus and the complementary breakfast across the street at Olsen's was great. The friendly and super helpful staff left the biggest impression. We had...

Having never stayed in Solvang, I didn't know what to expect for lodging. But the quaint, well run, peaceful rooms that the Hamlet Inn had to offer pleasantly surprised me! From the booking process (I had requested a sold out weekend, left my name, and they promptly called me upon the first cancellation) to the free bike rental and modern...

That this place ranks #4 in Solvang seriously undermines TripAdvisor's credibility (although I will continue to use it). Bare bones is an understatement. The bed, as it sags, has more squeaks than the LA zoo when the animals are hungry. In fairness, the place is clean, but only the most frugal would be happy here. If the Hamlet Inn is...

The joy of the Hamlet Inn is that it's just-refurbished rooms (a painter was working in one as we arrived) are spotless, the bedding pristine, the Danish modern decor apropos for the town of Solvang, and the location—right on the main street—IDEAL for walking everywhere in town. Yes, the bikes (free) are a plus, but so is the location! And...

Stayed here one night on our highway 1 road trip up the coast and could not have been more pleased-- friendly staff, cute room with great design/theme, clean, comfortable bed, nice radio/iPod docking station, and loved the breakfast across the street that came with it.

What you NEED is what you get: Clean room: King Bed, $10 charge for extra roll away bed. Mini fridge, free internet, TV, A/C. Clean shower and sink. In the middle of town on the main street; close to every thing! They even have complimentary bikes to ride. The front desk was welcoming & friendly. The "free breakfast" is a...

My love and I took a short 24 hour vacation to this lovely town and stayed at the Hamlet Inn. It was short notice, but they were so accomidating. We were given maps and tips for the best bike rides, wineries, and picnic spots. The 24 hours seemed so much longer by all the activities we got to partake in...

I give it three stars only because this place really has cleanliness, price and location going for it. It's super-clean, cute (in a modern, spartan IKEA-like way), and the people who run it are really nice and friendly. The room really needed a couple more chairs, but the bed was comfy and had nice linens. Because of all this, they...

Stayed here while wine tasting with girlfriends over a long weekend. The place is charming, newly redone, and looks like a sparse ikea ad in some places. They have bikes you can borrow and ride around town and do some wine tasting or shopping. The rooms are clean and newly remodeled. They are a bit drafty but overall, considering the...
