My room was clean and comfortable. It was unfortunate that the bar and other amenities were closed because of Covid 19.

It’s definitely a former motel that’s been upgraded. The room was clean, spacious but having the parking just outside your front door is noisy and the mini fridge was noisy as was the standing unit for air and heat. The shower head in room 1025 sucked.

Staff was great. I loved that they text you as soon as you check in asking if anything is needed. They are very responsive. The mini breakfast delivered to your room is a nice freebie. The coffee in room is surprisingly good. I wish every room had the movie Sideways to rent.

Very odd TV cable selection. Nothing matched the Guide and no normal stations seemed to be there...Front Desk wasn't sure either!

The whole hotel was very clean. The room smelled a touch of cleaning chemicals, but that's probably a good thing in this time of Covid. Included was a delivery of a small continental breakfast, which came right on time, left on the doorknob. It had a can of oj, an apple, yogurt and peanut butter and the best dark bread I've ever had. I'm stayed here for years and this was the first time I've had their breakfast and will continue to try it.
Other Comments
The bed was very high off the floor and there is no carpeting. The rooms could use more lighting. The doors have blinds that allow in quite a lot of light.

The staff was friendly, check in was fast, the room was great and the grounds are beautiful.

Close to the hitching post II, the ostrich farm, and within minutes of Solvang.
