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.
