    • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Hotel with a great mix between historic architecture and modern interior design. Very convenient location next to highway 101, across the street from Andersen’s famous pea soup and few miles down the road from beautiful Solvang Danish-heritage historic town.

    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Staff & service, room comfort

    The hotel was cute. Unfortunately, none of the amenities or the lounge were open, which was very understandable. However, the room could have been a little cleaner. Couch and carpet were stained and furniture was dusty. The bathroom floor and shower were also dirty. There was also no soap in the bathroom and housekeeping never came our whole stay. They also said free breakfast every morning and we only received it one day. Considering the circumstances, this will not hinder us from staying again. The whole world is trying to get back on track right now. Overall, we had a nice time. The place was very quaint and in a good location.

    Nice place but thin walls!!

    All good about this hotel...except walls are like paper thin. You hear everything from your next room neighbors. We had to turn on the fan on the wall AC to help drown out the voices, TV , etc from next door. You can also leave the TV on all night!!
