"GREAT place, GREAT service"
Our wedding party booked the entire Inn this past weekend, and everyone had nothing but positive comments about their rooms and the service...the owner, Paul, was extremely gracious and generous with his time, showing us the individual rooms at various visits with the future bride and groom and the families...We loved that the rooms were all different and had so much charm. The gardens provide the perfect setting for a family reunion, a wedding party, etc, - we all did our thing over the weekend, and then gathered at the garden to regroup, and enjoy the stories of the day over a glass of wine, and cheese and crackers. We will definitely come back to the Lodge for another family get together.
"Very pleasant stay"
Stayed here for one night en route to the wineries and the coast. After the usual chain hotels, the Solvang Gardens Lodge was a refreshing, endearing change.
"Always stay here"
I was introduced to this hotel by a loyal friend and now it is the only hotel I will stay while in Santa Ynez. Being a concierge, I am extremely picky about every detail of an experience and have never been so impressed by a smaller inn such as this. We always chose room #1, not the biggest but it has it's own parking space and your door and wrap around windows open to the big garden with the fountain. Everyone working (or not) is so very nice and always there for advise of where to go for dinner or just there to bring a bucket of ice for wine chilling. The morning room is fun to meet fellow guests and get filled in for the events of the day and night. Paul is really very nice and genuine, no wonder every time we are here we meet repeat guests that have the same loyalty.
"Wonderful B & B"
This is absolutely our favorite place to stay in Solvang. We stayed in one of the bigger rooms, the Cymbidium. It has a separate bedroom and sofa sleeper. The room was plenty big for my family, which included three teenagers. We were able to get a rollaway with no problem. The grounds are immaculate and well kept...The staff as always was friendly and courteous. Can't say enough good things.
“Wonderful Stay at the SGL"
My wife and I stayed at the SGL 4 nights in late August. We were in the Forget Me Not Room (room 2) which has a king bed, separate living room, sink, fridge and microwave. The room was very clean, comfortable, quiet and the A/C worked fine. The owner, Paul, was very friendly and gracious. I can't imagine more beautiful and relaxing grounds. There are two garden areas which are perfect for reading and relaxing...If you're looking for a very nice, cozy, friendly and very relaxing place to stay then go the SGL. Next time we go to Solvang we will definitely stay there!
"My favorite Inn in Solvang"
We visit Solvang 2-3 times a year, and the Solvang Garden Lodge is our favorite Inn. We continue to stay there because the property is convenient to town, and extremely well maintained. The rooms are quaint, but roomy and clean. We have stayed in several different rooms, but our favorites are the Honeysuckle and Rose Haven...The highlight of this Inn are the gardens. If you're in a front room, you walk out your door to a beautiful garden with seating and a fountain. The back garden is our favorite place to relax in the late afternoon with a bottle of wine and some snacks ...It feels like we're visiting family every time we check in.
