10.0 Excellent
Pros:Close to Solvang, renovated and updated rooms that feel like home, bonfires every night, pool with Jacuzzi and a great gym. What is there not to like? And breakfast delivered to your front door in the morning as well.
Cons:Wanted to stay here longer.
9.1 Excellent
Pros:Can’t beat location for price. Very clean. Update and modern.
Cons:Hard time sleeping with freeway noise. Should’ve ask for room further away from freeway.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Room, ambience, breakfast system
Cons:List of tv channels. Offer cream for coffee with the room service breakfast
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Recently renovated room was very comfortable. First time had a separate freezer with the refrigerator. Artwork and furniture were very comfortable and made for very relaxing. Very nice location very quaint.
Cons:Electrical outlets were hard to get to by the bed, but USB ports were abundant. Shower was a little awkward as there was no door or curtain, just half glass that came out. Liked the open feeling, but bathroom floor got too wet.
7.4 Good
Cons:The new remodeled doors do not block out the light and are poorly design. The blinds do not block out the light also. The lighting was poor in the room Also
6.8 Okay
Pros:Staff and location.
Cons:Dirty, dated bathroom.
8.5 Great
Pros:easy access to wine country
Cons:no comment
4.2 Mediocre
Pros:We arrived after check in time...around 4:30 or so- we were given keys and went to our room- which was quite a trek from the parking lot-where there were VERY limited parking spaces....our room was not ready- no lines, bathroom filthy-trashcans overflowing- we called the front desk and gave us another room-on the other side of the motel- we carried all our stuff and moved our car...our room was just okay- old- broken hair dryer, TV was messed up- very trashy parking lot and surrounding area....I will not stay there again-very disappointed.
4.0 Mediocre
Cons:a/c unit was falling apart
5.1 Passable
Pros:Room was fairly clean.
Cons:6 of the worst pillows I've ever tried to use. Grounds are trashy. Literally. Parking lot has litter as well as trash bags strewn about. Continental breakfast was free, and worth every cent.
