Reviewed July 23, 2010

Thanks to the Chumash Reseervation promotion coupons, we'v e stayed at The Corque a number of times. I tell my husband it's my "therapy".
The rooms are lovely, the views fabulous, the reception staff very accommodating, but it's the housekeeping staff that should get the prize.
This time we were on the 2nd floor facing the main st., Alisal Rd. No balcony, but we did have a set of French doors opening onto a wrought iron railing. There was no road noise. The recepttionist said this room had a "tree-top view" and indeed, it did.
I'm the "slots" gambler, and take the hotel's shuttle to the casino, leaving my husband happy to enjoy the view and the large screen TV for the evening.
We've only had ONE mildly unpleasant experience. We were on the second floor and there was a family above whose little children ran and jumped quite a bit until 9:00 p.m. If it had gone on later we would have called the desk.
The hotel is located very near some nice shops. My favorite is directly across the street called The Home Connection. Beautiful shop with gifts for yourself, weddings, birthdays, babies, wine buffs, gourmet cooks, etc. They gift wrap and ship too. I dislike malls, so I always make a point to drop in when I'm in Solvang. Also, be sure to check out the museum, sandwich shops and dining (but not too expensive) in Santa Ynez. (across from the Chumash Casino).

We stayed here for one night in June 2010. We were first given a room that was not to our liking - it overlooked the parking lot. We returned to the front desk to nicely point that out and reminded the desk clerk that we had made the reservations a month prior and paid more for a room that overlooked Santa Ynez/Mission/Mountain view as stated on their website. We were very nicely accomodated and moved. We thought. Cue to the next morning. But wait.....Did the new room have a view of the above? Well, no not exactly....we were more overlooking the pool - but I liked the corner privacy until the next morning............when realized we had the room directly over the 2nd floor continental breakfast public gathering patio. Not private. Not fun. A group sitting below us scooching their metal patio chairs and with a perfect view of us in our Hotel Corque white robes sipping coffee and reading our travel brochures. Ewwwww.

My husband and I had planned this trip to do wine tasting. We travel 2500 miles to do it.
We specifically wanted a nice hotel room that had a blacony so that we could share one of the nice bottles of wine we would be purchasing from the areas wineries after a day of wine tasting. In the morning, we were looking forward to the nice crisp CA morning to sit out on the balcony and have our coffee. So when we saw on their website that there was balconies with views of the mission and Santa Ynez mountains it was a no brainer to book here even though we usually stay at the Wine Valley Inn. So that is why we were just a bit disappointed in the location of our room.

It was a nice, modern room with a funky bed that was very comfortbale and a cool bathroom with not only separate sinks - but on opposite sides of the bathroom.

The staff was nice and we liked the location. We did not see much of Solvang this trip as it was just a wine trip in the Santa Ynez Valley.

My wife and I stayed a night at Corque while on the way up the coast and were pleasantly surprised by the staff and accommodation. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, and our room was quite nice. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

My husband and I were in Solvang to attend a wedding and stayed at the Hotel Corque for several nights. The room, with attractive contemporary California decor, was a good size with a small balcony overlooking the pool and an outstanding bathroom with two separate sinks, which was great for two of us. Room furnishings were in outstanding condition. We found the hotel to be very clean and quiet. The room was spotless and well-kept by the housekeeping staff during our stay. The lobby area with huge stone fireplace and seating was inviting. Internet was free and there was a business center easily accessible 24/7. They offer a complimentary continental breakfast, which is very minimal but convenient and appreciated nonetheless.We had a fantastic lunch at the exciting new gourmet restaurant next door, and the town filled with interesting eateries and shops is right outside the door. We appreciated the security of hotel keycard required to use the elevator. Great hotel in an interesting little town and spectacular part of California, especially if you are coming to visit the area's plentiful wineries or want to visit Santa Barbara, 1/2 hour away. Recommend the Hotel Corque very highly.

I was excited to find this hotel in Solvang because it seemed so much nicer than all the other run down motels that haven't been redone for 20 or 30 years. This place is certainly expensive (we paid nearly $300 for 1 night), but it was worth it! Everything was so easy - parking, competent staff, clean room, good restaurant next door, wine tasting rooms 1 block away, and continental breakfast in the morning. I would definitely stay at this hotel if you're looking to splurge or don't mind paying more to know you'll be comfortable and happy.

They had a internet discount, that made it quite comfortable. The room was nice, there breakfast was, bagel, cereal coffee and juice, so we walked over to a little Solvang breakfast cafe and eggs. Tried to have dinner at Root 246, but could not seat us until 9:30. Had a wonderful dinner at the Vineyard in Santa Ynez.
