Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Since I usually stay at franchise hotels, I wasn’t expecting much at King Frederik Inn - and I was thrilled to see how well kept it is. The staff was quite helpful and the room was spotless! Sure, it’s an older motel but recent changes were noticed AND appreciated! It’s amazing what a new mattress, fresh paint, and a large television will do for a room! Yes, a large tv! Situated right on the Main Street, everything was walkable. The pool was large and had plenty of poolside seating. Parking right next to the building was nice as well.

Hotel's Favourite
The King Fredrik Inn is so well located in the heart of Solvang that after checking in and parking our car, we did not need it until checking out two days later after a great stay. The rooms are impeccably clean in every square inch of our two queen bed room for my wife, son and I. The bathroom and shower were equally spotless throughout our stay. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. A continental breakfast is served each morning with freshly baked danish and muffins from an excellent local bakery - Olsen's- just down the street. Orange and apple juice are available in addition to coffee, hot chocolate and tea. The pool is a nice size but we did not use it. The King Fredrik Inn welcomes all guests warmly and without judgment- whether a family, a couple or singles. Many restaurants are within a few walkable blocks and the staff seemed knowledgable about them. We greatly enjoyed our visit and stay at The King Fredrik Inn.

In this cute Danish town of Solvang, the King Frederick Inn is a charming hotel right in the middle of everything. Perfect location! The rooms were comfortable, the hot tub was relaxing, the morning pastry was tasty, and we were happy to be there.

Great location. Lots of free parking. This hotel checked all the boxes for an overnighter. We walked everywhere. Restaurants, shops and bakeries were all steps away. 10 minute drive to Chumash Casino and Ostrichland. Pool and jacuzzi closes at 9pm. Danish pastries and individually packed oatmeal for breakfast. Towels were surprisingly fluffy. Obviously an old establishment and needs a refresh but with the $ we paid and its location, we were satisfied. It’s a 2-story building - no elevator. Solvang is so charming! More trips & pix on IG: @i_therefore_conclude

I made this reservation weeks in advance. We checked in on time and I asked for a ground floor room and was told there were none available, as they were “ fully booked” so we had to take a second floor room and there’s no elevator. Ugh. After lugging our bags up two flights, the room they gave us was so bad. Only one high window overlooking an outside corridor, no light in the room, very claustrophobic. The only consolation was the room was clean. Won’t stay here again.

This is our second time in many years. Reception was great. On a major street and noisy. Nice pool, good rates, clean room. Sunday night quieted down by 9 pm. Close to everything. Bring ear plugs. Bummer that the gardeners on another property started blowers at 0700! Continental breakfast but we went elsewhere for a real breakfast. Walking distance to many restaurants and cafes, bakeries, wine tasting, downtown.

Location is perfect. After a long day you can easily walk to a wine tasting or dinner or even come in for a weekend and have everything near by and not have to drive. Rooms are not fancy but are clean and beds are comfortable. Rooms over looking the pool seem to be lighter and have balconies big enough to sit and have morning coffee.

Overall, the check-in was easy and the staff very nice. The room and bathroom, including carpeting seemed nice and clean. The only thing I would ask is that the cleaning service wipe the fingermarks from around doorknobs and light switches. It is very convenient (walking distance) to downtown Solvang. We had a problem on the morning we left, with no hot water. We had to leave early, so we could not wait around for the heater to be fixed. But the manager was generous in compensating us for this. All in all, if and when we return to Solvang, we would stay here again.

The King Frederik Inn is a classic motel, as many others in downtown Solvang. You park your car at the front door for the street level, anywhere close to the steps for the second level. The swimming pool was operational, unlike some other motels in the area. The building we stayed in (across the parking lot) had nicely remodeled rooms with bullnose corners, fresh paint and decent furniture. The windows are dual pane to keep the noise out, as long as the maid does not leave the sliding part open, to allow traffic noise created by big trucks on highway 246 to wake you up. One reason we chose this motel was the included breakfast which turned out to be no more than a small Danish roll, wrapped in plastic and/or a small paper coffee cup filled with dry cereal. One good thing was that there was coffee in the coffee machine most of the day. We ended up going to Paula's Pancake House (Mission Drive) one morning and the Solvang Restaurant (Copenhagen Drive) the following morning. Both are a few minutes walk from the motel and offer a fantastic breakfast. Overall, we had a good stay.

We try to advertise as complimentary breakfast rather than continental because we don't offer hot food. However, our pastries and muffins are delivered fresh daily from Olsen's Bakery. Warm Regards.

This is in a great central location. Roda at the front desk was capable and friendly. However, our room had urine soaked into the carpet. They sent someone to clean it up, but when we talked to them about it the next day, they basically said they did everything they could. Nope. There was urine on the floor, just repeating. The manager was supposed to call me. Never did. No customer service discount. No checking in. So...I would highly reccomend staying somewhere else. I mean there was (just going to say it again) urine on the floor and the way they handled that was not great. Also, the rooms don't look like the pictures. Now, I'll be curious to see if they respond to this in a better way than they responded to me in person.
