Nice Inn, Good Breakfasts, Great Location A review of Wine Valley Inn & Cottages - A Broughton Hotel
The Wine Valley Inn, which is very inviting, is located on a quiet street only a block from the main shopping district in town. The rooms are spacious and clean, and our rooms (we stayed in two on separate nights) each had a fireplace. During the first night, we stayed on the third floor. The room was cozy and quiet, but the bed was soft and rather uncomfortable. On the second night we stayed on the second floor, near the clock tower. Great king-sized bed and large room, but we could hear people walking above us on occasion. All in all, we'd stay there again, but we'd ask for a third floor with a king-sized bed, or stay in one of the cottages, which we hear are very nice. Also, we thought the cost was a bit high considering it had a few "issues" as those mentioned above, but most places in Solvang are a bit pricey and so this was expected. But the location is wonderful and once there, you can walk almost anywhere in town. And the continental breakfasts are good and offer a variety of food, such as bagels, hard-boiled eggs, cereal, etc. -- enough to tide you over until lunchtime!
