Wine Valley Inn & Cottages
Ranked #6 of 11 Hotels in Solvang
Reviewed 6 January 2018

We stay here frequently. It is very clean. The staff exceeds expectations. The breakfast is more than ample, enjoy cold or hot selections or both!!! A big plus for breakfast is it is open until 10:30. You can grab brunch at 10 and hit the many bakeries for "Tea Time." The hotels offer an evening wine bar with cheese for a fee. There was a fair size group enjoying wine at the outdoor fireplace, first time we have been here in Jan. adds to the charm. They have bikes available. Lastly on the positive side the location it is very walkable to the main streets, I think Wed is Farmers Market.
I will say if you need absolute quiet to sleep you want to stay here, the Inn side is very quaint and older, it creaks, it squeaks and if you are on the first floor you may hear the pitter patter of little feet ..., all adds charm to the experience. Can not speak to the Motel side, never have stayed there.

Room Tip: It would be crazy to reveal our favorites ;) We like the Old Inn for its charm. Can be noisy, see r...

We went to Solvang in the week between Christmas and New Year's and joined some friends who were staying here.
They were smart and rented a cottage which was roomier and slightly better in look and layout. We opted for a junior suite which had a convoluted layout and a sort of comfortable bed with the WORSE PILLOWS I've ever had the misfortune of trying to use.
Not feathers or down, but some sort of crumbled up foam that was impossible to use to get comfortable. Needless to say between the less than ideal pillows and a light shining outside, but into our room that was sort of blocked out by the blinds, it was a less than ideal night.
And like the airlines who have a tendency to price gouge over the holidays, the Wine Valley Inn is no exception to this heinous practice. Our room cost $249. a night and I was just on their site and saw the same room for $99.00 per night.
The breakfast provided was adequate, but hardly high end. Scrambled eggs with some mystery meat sausage and toast it yourself bread...like I said, nothing special.
My advice is go at less than peak season, or better yet, visit Solvang during the day and stay 3-4 miles down the road in Buellton where there are better hotels at more reasonable prices.

Room Tip: Try to get a cottage. Even the high end rooms are less than high end.

The hotel is well located in Solvang, we wanted to make a stop of one night travelling from San Francisco to LA.
The town is beautiful, a little part of Europe that surprised us.
In general its ok, but it needs a refresh.
The hotel needs to improve the cleaning, for example the room had old carpets that smell a bit of humidity, they should renew them. Besides the heating wasnt working and was a cold night, they made us a discount for that issue.
The breakfast was included, which was ok consideringn the rates of the hotel.

I really wanted to like this place. The reservation and front desk staff were so friendly. I paid almost $250 per night for one of the loft rooms but it really felt like a $100/night experience. And some things just aren't acceptable, like using stained sheets and thread bare towels. We left the little sign off of the bed (per instructions) so that the sheets would be changed. Unfortunately, when we got back to our room at almost 11pm, the bed had just been re-made. The sheets were still the stained ones. This is just not acceptable. Also, the dormer window ledge was very dusty and the curtain was so dirty that it looked beige. We just could not justify sending a friend there to spend that kind of money for a sub par experience.

Had a wedding in the area and I️ booked few rooms. the place is very old, and not clean. It’s even smell like old. It’s nothing even similar to their website. I️ booked a suit for my parents and it was far from what it looked online. When I️ spoke with the manager she wasn’t surprised with my complains . She decided to give me some discount. The breakfast is nice and the stuff is friendly. Don’t think I’ll be back
