Reviewed 1 January 2017

Great location, and a charming little motor inn, Danish styple from the outside. It's within a 5 min. walk to the heart of town. Bed was very comfortable, room very clean and everything in great shape. The gardens, even in December, are lovely. Only minor complaint we had was that it was very cold in Solvang over Christmas, and the bathroom was hard to warm up. Should have brought slippers. But all in all, we had a great stay and would definitely come back again, and recommend to others.

First time staying at the Solvang Gardens and last time. The rooms where cute the gardens are lovely. The breakfast was lacking in more ways than I am willing to get into. Tried to call and check in early for hours and no one answered the phone. Finally arrived two hours early and they allowed us to check in, but they did not answer the phone while we were checking in.

The breakfast was simple which would have been OK but not enough food, for the number of guests. We are early risers and all three mornings had sparse servings.

Worst part, first day no housekeeping. Went to speak with the manager about at least getting some towels and the trash taken out. Excuses were given that housekeeping had called in sick. I was provided soap and a sponge to wash my drinking glasses and my trash was taken out while I waited. Next day, arrived back at the hotel after a day of wine tasting and no housekeeping again. Instead of speaking to the manager tracked down housekeeping. Since I am bilingual they informed me that every room in B&B had been dirty and mangers had them clean every room needed for new guest before seeing to other rooms. They also informed me that they were not even scheduled the day before nor where they scheduled for that day but has been called in.

Do not recommend for a multi-day stay. If you need a place to crash for the night and will check out the next day not a bad stay for the price. The rooms are adequately clean, the breakfast is rough but you eat all day in Solvang and wine tasting.

We stay in Solvang about three times a year, we usually stay at the Meadowlark Inn, they were booked. Will not be staying here again.

This was my wife and I's 2nd stay at the Solvang Gardens. The location is just one block down from the main area of Solvang, which is great because it's quiet, but walking distance to everything the town has to offer.

Our room, was medium in size, comfortable, with a comfortable bed. Fresh towels, coffee maker, and working air conditioning made the stay a joy. Parking was easy, and any thing we needed was quickly accommodated by the hotel staff.

Darling Inn with a lovely garden out the back door of our recently remodeled room. Excellent coffee and continental breakfast and a great location that is in close walking distance of center of Solvang. We will stay here again.

The room we stayed in was on the small side but was clean and had all the amenities.
We appreciated the continental breakfast, not much to it but still better than nothing!
All was well until neighbors checked in to the room next door. It was after 11PM and after a long day of traveling we just wanted to get some sleep, but their kids were loud and screaming outside running through the grounds waking us up and continuing with the noise in the room also. The walls are thin there so did not sleep that well. This happened in the morning also. I think everything would have warranted a better rating had it not been for our very noisy neighbors!!!

This is a fun little town to visit during the month of September. Sunny and warm weather and a good choice of restaurants and bakeries. Anyone who wants to try Danish pastries has enough choice to choose from. It is perfect for a one day trip or stop by on the way to Los Angeles. Only 3,5 hours drive along 101 Highway. There is one golf course one mile away and a casino.
