The room was large and comfortable, the bed was fantastic, the staff was wonderful, the location was perfect, really felt like we were on vacation not jammed into downtown Solvang. The community of Ballard is so restful. The Gathering Table restaurant was exceptional for our first night's dinner then the included breakfasts were great - fresh, tasty, perfect (not overwhelming) portions. Loved no TV's but, if you need your connection, they have great WiFi. Definitely going back.
