Stayed here with friends last year and didn't hesitate to book again this year. Great little hotel centrally located in Solvang. Rooms are large with large, comfy beds. Ac is a bit noisy but was very welcome on a warm day. Bathroom has large shower and is perfectly functional. Great location if you are planning a wine tasting tour.

Hamlet Inn is on Mission Drive, in the middle of all the action. It's a great area to stay in, right across from Paula's Pancake House and a ton of other eateries. There are ton of tastings nearby as well, so it makes for a perfect play to stay, location-wise. The Inn was very nice. Clean, the beds were comfortable,...

The room was small, but quaintly decorated and clean. The property is pleasant, the staff are helpful, and the a/c is COLD. There aren't a lot of extras - but then, you aren't staying in Solvang for the hotel, I expect. It is CENTRAL to the town, an easy walk to virtually everything you will want to see - shops,...

We stayed here on our PCH trip, last night before LA but I wish we'd stayed in Santa Barbara. Solving was plain weird and on an exceptionally hot day, was too hot to wander around. Come the evening when it was cool enough, everything was shut! The Hamlet was very basic: uncomfortable beds, rubbish shower pressure, no views or communal...

I have stayed at several properties in Solvang. Due to some procrastination on my part, I was unable to book my favorite lodging on a very busy weekend ( the finale of My Fair Lady at the Festival Theater). I found the Hamlet Inn through a booking engine and we made a reservation for two rooms...not sure what to expect....

For the location, this hotel had a great rate and the room was clean and adequate. The woman at check-in gave us a card for discounted wine tastings throughout Solvang. Be sure to try Ebelskevers, there are a few shops that have them.

We stayed one night and needed two beds and were surprised to find one bed per room with a door between them. Only one room had a window unit A/C but it got both rooms cool. It was nice to close the door between rooms to block the sound of our snoring family member. The office has free bikes that...

Stayed here for one night on July 3/4 weekend 2015. They charge (irrevocable) full amount to cc at checkin (which was somewhat impersonal). Cost for an average room in an average property was way inflated compared to (our discovery) nearby hotels/inns like Royal Copenhagen (which seemed a better, friendlier, and well maintained property comparatively).

Well it's a very cute place!! Very simple I actually like it better than most "normal" hotels. It's right on the main drag as stated above. The rooms have a bed, nightstand, TV, long desk, sofa, table, & mini fridge. Lots of natural light and the room is huge compared to most places. I love the space in the shower...

Nothing to write home about. Sparse utilitarian rooms may put some off but clean and serviceable with all amenities within walking distance. Not the friendliest welcome but we all have off days. Would try another property if there is a next time.
