We have stayed here several times, and enjoy the cozy rooms that are all different. Jennifer does a great job at the front desk-- lots of personality. I'm sure we will be back.

Had an excellent time. Great accommodations. Good breakfast and good wine and cheese in the evening. Pet friendly. Good location. Within walking distance. We didn't drive anywhere. Very friendly staff. Corina even helped us jump start our car so we didn't have to wait with our 3 month old for a jump. Will stay again. Maybe we will try cottages next time... But
The lofts were pretty neat!

We spent the night there August 26, 2014. I loved the location of the Inn, the look and setup. The room was a standard room with a King bed. The package I got came with a tasting and bottle of wine from a local Winery- Great winery and great deal. The room was nice, clean, big enough. The bed was nice and also the layout. It was a cozy room and charming look to it and also the Inn. The problem we had, was that the room had an adjoining door to the room behind it and we could hear everything the people in there were doing, even brushing their teeth! And other things you can imagine. The walls are paper thin. They were up late talking, sounded like yelling because we could hear everything. Did not rest that night! Real shame, it looked like a place I've might have stayed again.

We were there one night only but it was an excellent experience. The gal at the front desk was great and Maria at the wine bar was extremely nice. Our room had its own fireplace it was very cute & great layout. Everyone was extremely friendly. Next time we'll come to town I will definitely stay at your hotel!!

This charming inn has a wonderful location in Solvang. The breakfast was outstanding. Real cooked scrambled eggs and sausage, along with delicious Danish pastries. They also had a wine reception in the lobby where they served local wines and cheeses. The room we had was comfortable, except for the bed and pillows, which were too hard for me. We were on the first floor, so we could hear people upstairs every time they walked across the floor. So needless to say, I didn't sleep well. Next time, I'll ask for a room on the second level. Otherwise, I would recommend this hotel. We'll definitely return.

We have been staying at this establishment for 15 years, since it was called "The Chimney Sweep Inn." We've always liked its quaint appeal and vicinity to the shops and amphitheater. Most of our visits have been good, but when we stayed there a couple weeks ago, we were disappointed to be in a room with only one window that faced a wall, the window was filthy. The other windows were too high to see out of but you could see the cobwebs in them. The carpet had stains, the TV remote didn't work; there was a constant buzzing noise coming from somewhere in the building that never went away. The internet access was limited although advertised as free. My husband had to call to get the passcode and when it wouldn't work, he had to call again…and again. The bathroom was so small there was nowhere to put our toiletries except a little area near the sink valves. The towels were tiny and rough. The man at the front desk was unprofessional. He hardly acknowledged me when I walked in to check in. He took a call while checking me in and it sounded like it was someone he knew and not a customer, so I stood and waited while he finished his call. Sad that a place we once loved so much is losing its appeal. We'll be staying somewhere else next time.

Your staff was pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed the wine bar and fireplace in the salon in the late afternoon. The complimentary breakfast was well presented and tasty. The fireplace in our room didn't have the required upper flu handle, so we couldn't use it. No big deal - but a detail. Our room felt a little too tucked away - no sense of view or anything outside the window. A bit disappointing, given the picturesque nature of the town - and the Inn itself, with its delightful garden. Nonetheless, I would heartily recommend your Inn.

I stayed in the Deluxe Tower room. The room was well appointed. It was large, with high ceilings, free-standing fireplace, and the bed was very comfortable. The shower was easily accessible, roomy, and had good water pressure. The only areas which need improvement, in my opinion are lack of counter space in the bathroom. There was not much room for toiletries and cosmetics. The other comment, There are two lights, at either end of the room, which seemed designed to stay on. The bed is on an elevated level, so I am sure the lighting was meant for safety, however, I had to find ways to lower the light, in order to sleep. Other than that, I did enjoy complimentary hot breakfast. The property is lovely, and has a lovely garden area.

We stayed at one of the duplex cottages. It was beautiful. It carried the same sense of style from the exterior. The little courtyard among the cottages was beautiful at night. There were a ton of light switches but that just allowed us to tailor the lighting. Kitchen was fully equipped and the wood shutters kept the place private at night and dark even though there is sunlight outside for when we want to sleep a few extra hours.

Stayed here 6 years ago during the Taste of Solvang weekend. WE LOVED IT. We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms. It was so nice, romantic, and relaxing. This trip, we decided to splurge again and booked for 3 nights, again for the Taste of Solvang weekend. On our drive from NorCal to Solvang, we received a snippy call from Karena at the front desk... "your credit card did not go thru, we will cancel your reservation immediately if you do not call me back". WOW! I called back within 10 minutes of the voicemail, as we did not hear the call over our conversation on the drive. When I called back, Karena answered, "Wine Valley Inn, this is Karena, I'm with a customer, can I take your name and number and call you back in 10 minutes?" I said, "yes, my name is X and..." Karena immediately cut me off and said, "are you still coming? I need a credit card" I provided a credit card and advised we would arrive around 8pm. When we arrived, Karena sort of gave me the evil eye as she checked us in... (I wanted to say... sometimes things happen and credit cards get frauded between the 4 months ago, when I booked the hotel and the check in day... get over it... but I did not) I just took my key and headed toward what I was expecting to be my gorgeous relaxing, romantic room. NOT!!! We stayed in room 101, basically a room adjoining the back parking lot, appearing to once have been a maid's quarters... in major need of a new bed and a makeover. The bed shook like jello anytime you moved the slightest little muscle, you could see daylight coming in around the AC unit, the walls were as thin as paper (night one we had a couple with a dog next to us - the dog didn't bark, but the man snored like a train, night two we had 2-3 women next to us chatting all night, and night three we had a spicy couple next to us that kept us up late with their panting) - again, paper thin! The carpet was disgusting, we wore shoes or socks the entire time for fear of walking on it. The TV was practically falling off the wall. Half the light switches didn't work. The mirror inthe bathroom was held together with duct tape. The towels were so old they were like sand paper. Thinking back, I am not sure if room 101 is the "punishment" room for patrons with credit issues or what, but I will think very hard about ever staying at the Wine Valley Inn again.

We have stayed here numerous times and in various rooms each year when we attend the Annual Greyhound Gathering in February. We love this place because its dog-friendly, clean, well appointed, great location, reasonably priced, and bringing the dogs into the fireplace-lit lounge with us for wine & cheese tasting each evening is priceless. However, they are under new management now and have changed a few things I wish they hadn't. 1) They used to leave the doors to their breakfast area open in the evening and coffee & tea service available, and now they do not. I used to really enjoy sitting in the lounge at night with a nice cup of tea while my hubby enjoys the wine-tasting. 2) Like many here who have mentioned, the beds are way too soft; they need to upgrade to firmer, more supportive mattresses (and better pillows). And 3) Michelle, who used to host the wine-tasting every evening, is no longer there. While I'm sure that may not be within the hotel's control, its worth a mention, as we had become really friendly with her over the years and always looked forward to seeing her every time we stayed. Although the new host is wonderful, I will really miss Michelle, she had become a mainstay, and someone I always looked really forward to seeing each time we visited. Aside from that, this is the best place in town, and we will return again and again.
