Richard, us1 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Cute and comfortable
My boyfriend and I stayed here one night to go wine tasting around the area. The hotel is close to Solvang and even though it’s right off the highway I didn’t hear much traffic noise during the night. The room was simple but comfortable. I like that they provide a complimentary, light breakfast and danishes in the lobby. Check in was very easy and the staff were friendly and helpful.

What a fantastic and unexpected find along the 101 route between Nor and SoCal.
Samantha, us1 night trip

Nice hotel in the middle of wine country
Nice hotel, not so nice outside - close to the highway noice, but great inside with windows facing inner courtyard. Big rooms, comfy beds, great location. The only negative is breakfast - they bring it to your room ,which is nice, but choices are minimal and repetitive. For the price I would expect something better
Adam, us2 night family trip
Good 6.0
Hyped-up hotel
We had such great expectations after reading other reviews....but we left disappointed. During checkin we were asked if we wanted to waive daily cleaning and change of linens to help with the environment. We opted for it, but as a result the hotel failed to replace empty water bottles and didn’t even provide us with a breakfast card that they need you to fill out the evening before, for breakfast delivery the next morning. As a result, we didn’t get breakfast!

Sliding Glass-door...
Only issue we had was the sliding glass door was very difficult to open and close. It was a handicap room as well so you would think it be very easy to open. Other than that we really like the place and will stay their again.
