Love the welcoming, comfortable lobby with fresh coffee, and tea! This was our second stay in the last six months, and appreciate the remodeled property from the iconic”Sideways Inn” movie. The property is dog friendly, which can be undesirable for some, but perhaps there are some pet free rooms by request. (I think I failed to request this, but the room seemed quite clean).

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The location was excellent, and only a few miles from downtown Solvang. Room was clean, updated, and had a cute barn door to bathroom. Clerk mentioned and charged the “due at hotel” fee, but I had to remind her about the promised food/beverage daily credit. We were not told that during our three night stay there would be no maid service, which was fine but our trash collected.
