“Easily the Best Stay in Solvang... (within walking distance to the very good PCPA theater)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We'd stayed at this property when it was under other management and another name - the Royal Scandinavian (I believe it was). They've completely re-modeled the place and it's gorgeous. The rooms are very clean, the bathroom with its two sinks and glassed-in shower are wonderful.
Bed: comfortable with a variety of pillow "textures" and types to suit your preferences.
WiFi: works great.
Amenities: small fridge, wine glasses, and all the other things a quality hotel offers. Flat screen TV. Free copy of USA Today - a bit of a milque-toast publication, but I guess they don't want to get anyone agitated while on vacation.

Nice place... so why only a 4 out of 5?

The pool is very nice if small. Since staying at some other resorts lately, I guess I've been spoiled by what a pool - or poolS - could be. Why spoil the ambiance with gaudy signs advising "No Diving" etc. - is that a state requirement or just some lawyer's idea of keeping the management safe from lawsuits? Either way, having the huge signs really clashes with the rest of the property. Maybe that's a trivial complaint, but there it is.
So OK, I'm a news junkie even when away on vacation. I watch a variety of news outlets and subscribe to everything from the far-left "Nation" magazine, to the Limbaugh Letter.
I watch MSNBC and Fox News, but wait... I can get CNN, but when I try and access Fox News, it's "no signal" time. The printed material in the room says it's on Channel "6" - but no signal. The electronic menu says it's on Channel "15," but again, it's not. Are the Chumash censoring Fox News? I think they might just be - and that bugs. If the management reads this, I'd love a response.

This was the second trip my husband and I stayed at Hotel Corque. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are very clean. The bed is comfortable, and have down pillows upon request (the first night I had a foam pillow which was not good). This hotel is great location, walking distance to the Solvang Bakery which is very good. We also like Root 246, which is the restaurant adjacent to the hotel. We had a late evening arrival, and the staff was very accommodating. We will stay here on future SYV area visits.

Booked a quick nights stay while wine tasting in the Sta Rita Hills area. I had originally booked the Grand Suite but was encouraged by a friend to swap to the Wine Country Suite - while both were the same price the Wine Country Suite has a MUCH nicer bathroom!! The only other difference is the Grand Suite has a door that seperates the lounge area from the bedroom.

Room was super clean, checkin and checkout very smooth. Would gladly go back if in the area. Great value.

Only downside was the attached Root 246 was pretty bad for breakfast.

Room Tip: Pick the Wine Country Suite over the Grand Suite - same price, but MUCH better bathroom.

Wow! What a nice surprise for Solvang. If you've ever stayed at most of the other hotels in Solvang, you know what I mean. Most of the hotels are sufficient but not nearly as nice as the Hotel Corque. Worth the extra $$ if not taking the kids. Only stayed one night but had a great time. Wonderful location. Really felt like I was at an upscale hotel. If my parents timeshare down the street isn't available again, I'll be back for sure!
Spent the majority of our evening at the Solvang Brewing Company. Nice surprise that they had a live band. Good mix of locals and visitors. Food was nothing exceptional but pretty good overall.

First time stay. Excellent, well-appointed room...especially considering the area. Got good concierge help from Karen with restaurants. Spacious parking and a good location in town to access the Los Olivos and Santa Ynez wineries, restaurants and shops. Pricing appears highly variable based upon demand for the rooms.

The room we had, a double queen, was quite nice. Staff was nice also.

But If you're staying just one night, the 4pm check in, and 12 noon check out means that you're paying a lot for a very short stay.

Also, after logging into their free Wifi, my email account was severely spammed like never before. Coincidence? I doubt it.

When in Solvang, Hotel Corque is the only place we will stay. It's way above the motels in the area. We enjoy the amenities, especially the double sinks in the bathroom. Has comfortable beds,fridge in all the rooms and a has a very large parking area. Staff is friendly and helpful. For what this hotel offers the room rates are very reasonable, However on this trip ( we stayed Weds & Thurs) the reservationist told us the 2nd night would almost be double because of an event in town of which she didn't know what it was. Since room rates are usually less expensive Sun thru Thurs. we were surprised but accepted the rate since we enjoy this hotel so much. Solvang is a great place to walk around the town, you don't have to drive far to go anywhere. The Chumash Casino is only a few minutes away and the wineries are close by. We love coming in the summer so we can attend the outdoor theaterfest with its excellent cast.
