Svendsgaard's Lodge is a great place to stay for vacationers to Solvang. It's quiet, the rooms are well apportioned, and the rates quite reasonable compared to similar hotels in the area. The hotel lies closer to the eastern edge of the town, but guests still get a piece of the action here. Across the street lies Mission Santa Ynez ,and just a few yards away lies a bakery with the yummiest selection of pastries and Danish butter cookies. Outlet shops are kitty-corner from the hotel. The staff is generally friendly. With a pool, hot tub, and fireplaces in suites, there's plenty of space for budget-conscious families. Ample parking, with daily continental breakfasts. Make sure to get reservations early as space fills quickly.
