This place is falling down around itself. Not clean no amenities. You can get a much much nicer place to stay, and the rate is not that good. This place needs a total remodel. Do ypurself a favor and stay anywhere else, drive by and hear what I am talking about

A total Dump. No one would answer door of so called office. We were met by a toothless half clothed man who said "we don't take reservations. People just drop in after they come from the casino" I had made reservations from the very nice looking add. I finally got the lady that runs the place to cone out so I could tell her we wouldn't be staying there and to make sure my credit card was not billed. There were mattresses etc laying outside paint falling off the walls. Dirty. Don't know how they get away with that advertisement.

C'mon folks, this place is a gem for any writer, novelist, anarchist, student of life, student of entropy, or felon on the lamb, (hey, ex-cons need accommodations too ya'know). If your looking for a resort experience, well, keep on driving --Duh. But if your looking for a mix of bombed-out croatia meets ghetto-redneck, well this is just the spot. The dilapidated fence around the gravel filled pool next to the office should give you a clue to start with. Then there's the various non-mobile "vintage" automobiles in the lot -some filled to capacity with rubbish and plastic bottles. The non-existent lights so you can't even see the place from the road at night. Do you really think the owner/operators of this establishment care about your negative reviews? The folks who stay here 'on purpose' aren't being finicky about not having their toilet paper ends folded up into neat triangles for them, and they aren't reading your online reviews either,duh. Why give this place a negative review because you planned poorly and expected to be in Camelot when you only bought a discount ticket at the last moment for Detroit? That's like going to a bakery and being upset when you can't order a burger? -Duh.

We picked this motel being in desperate situations, because all other hotels in Solvang were full (and we didn't have any opportunity to read the hotel reviews on the internet).
The room looked and smelled really scary. I couldn't imagine that there can be a place like this in the middle of California.
Dirty carpet that looked 50 years old. Strong chemical smell. Queen beds with decent mattresses, but the blankets and sheets had a holes (from cigarettes?). Fire alarm was hanging from the ceiling, on wires. I wasn't able to get the hot water in the shower, only slightly warm.
On the positive side, there were no bed bugs, we weren't robbed, and the night costed us only $68.

We drove up to Solvang for the holiday weekend on a whim, and of course, there were no hotels available EXCEPT the Sanja Cota. The rate was $99. The pillow cases had "Property of Sanja Cota" written on them in black marker. I think the towels had the same thing written on them, but I can't be sure because there was no way I was going to take a shower in that place. The fire alarm was sitting on top of the dresser. The manager Lillian turned on the heater which was making popping sounds but we immediately turned it off for fear of what might happen. I sent my children the name of the hotel in case we were never seen from again, so at least they knew where our last whereabouts were. Thank God we woke up without incident and we left as soon as we were awake.
