“Lovely Hotel in Quaint California Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

The rooms are nice, clean, and modern. Some might fault the hotel for the lack of a restaurant, but I do believe they have a room service menu and the hotel is walking distance to about 20 places or more to eat. The hotel is very centrally located. (the town seems very safe and clean and a walkers paradise.)

The staff was kind and friendly, from the minute you pull up under the porte cochere, to the time you're sitting at a desk for check it. (And yes, I much prefer a face to face check-in sitting down at a desk.) (standing at a counter for check-in seems very motel-6 to me., so I very much appreciate being able to sit/relax and check in with a friendly person.

Speaking of, a shout-out to Tommy! Thank you for your services this past time at check-in. To the Hotel Corque management.... a word of advice., that Tommy is a KEEPER! Tommy is exactly the type of person I want checking me in to a hotel. Kind, cordial and knowledgeable.

To include... waking up.... walking through the lobby.... saying good morning, only to have Tommy respond with .... "Good Morning Mr. - - - - -" (and using my last name.) Very smart young man.

I've stayed here one other time... I was on the back, ground level with a walk out patio. (nice)
This stay, I was in the front, no patio and window facing the road. With the window closed... you hear NOTHING, open that window and there were times it sounded as if you were on a freeway and yet oddly it's a two land road in a small town. But in any event, with the window closed there is no noise at all and the room was lovely. (thank you.) (Id stay under the same circumstances in a front room - any day of the week.)

One final tip for travelers. I believe from time to time if one has a players card from the local casino (Chumash) they offer reduced rates here. (I believe the hotel is owned by the casino) And if one wanted to go to the casino, I believe it's about 6 miles away., with a shuttle service that picks up out front.

I've traveled all over the world, and without hesitation would stay at the Hotel Corque if my future travel plans included being in this part of California.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back, preferably ground level.

Lobby and check-in: cute lobby with a trendy feel. Great customer service. The front desk person was busy when I approached it to checking in, as well as check out. I was immediately greeted with another person who helped me check in and out at a different desk. The lobby serves a local label coffee so you can help yourself throughout the day.

Rooms: The rooms feels new and clean. The room comes with a small frig so you can keep your drinks in there cold. Our room had a balcony (i think all the pool facing rooms had balconies but I'm not sure about the rooms facing the other direction), which was great. The weather was perfect so we sat in the balcony to enjoy a glass of wine. The bathroom was nice and spacious with plenty of counter space. we had to call for extra shampoo and barhop service and they were both delivered promptly.

Dining: Root 246 is attached to the hotel We had an awesome dinner there (see my Root 246 review).

We paid full price for the rooms (which was worth it) and I saw in other reviews that someone got a $99 a night deal with TravelZoo. I'll have to be on the look out for another $99 deal for my next trip back to Solaving! That's a steal!

Room Tip: Reserve a room that faces the pool.

Got a good deal on travel zoo for $99 a night. Great stay for solvang hotel. Right in the little town, nice size bed and room, big bathroom with two sinks, walk in shower. Only thing is the town shuts down early and not much to do after that. Hotel doesn't serve breakfast.

Go every year at the same time to Solvang and love this property. It is located next to the shops, restaurants, and bakeries. Hotel staff really nice and room very nice. The hotel restaurant next door, Root 246, has a wonderful Sunday Brunch. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Really enjoyed our stay here! Hotel Corque had been out of our price range initially when I was looking for somewhere to stay in Solvang, until we found a deal online and so glad I did! The hotel is one the nicest in Solvang, walking distance to the shops and restaurants, and the hotel is in pristine condition, rooms were perfect, beds so comfy, bathrooms enormous. Very close drive to wineries. Only bummer was that we didn't get to try the restaurant Root 246 that I had heard such great things about. We'll have to come back!

Room Tip: We chose the mountain view with the patio. Was very nice to have the sliding glass door open and let...

Stayed here one night as a get away from LA. Everything was great. The lobby, Rooms,Bathrooms, service. It was perfect. Went to Root 246 that night for a drink at the lounge. It was great. I would highly recommend this hotel for a night or a few. Great location. Walking distance to shops. And shuttle to casino if Desired
