Solvang: Wine Valley Inn

1564 Copenhagen Drive, Phone: (800) 824-6444

Reviewed by: Shannon from CA, review #1435

When: April 2006

A reasonably priced hotel in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley wine country.

Solvang, California is a touristy "Danish Village" but it is also in the same region as the Santa Ynez wine region, which makes it a good base for touring the wineries in the area. This is one of the better options in a town full of low-cost and moderate hotels.

Located on Copenhagen Drive (on which there are several wine tasting rooms as well as a lot of touristy shops), the hotel has rooms on three floors. Some of the rooms have fireplaces or lofts, and there are a few cottages with king size beds, sofa sleepers, and kitchettes. The rooms are very nice for the price, especially considering some of the other options in town (many of which I've stayed at).

The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. The fireplaces only have presto-logs, but they are a nice touch. A large complimentary breakfast is served in the morning that includes good coffee, pastries, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, cereal, and the like.

This hotel often offers excellent internet rates for the off season and during the week. I would not recommend going to Solvang in the summer! I have paid $64.00 for a fireplace room during the week.

I did have one problem in room 312 - a loud hum all night that kept me up. It sounded like a generator or something. The front desk said they would check it out but never did. All in all though, I really like this place and recommend it for anyone touring the area or even stopping off for the night.
