all i can say is wow!!! what a difference a little bit of money can make on a hotel. when this was the royal scandinavian, it was all chintz and maple furniture, really bad. we would go up to santa ynez alot but always had a problem with the hotels and food in solvang. problem solved!! i would go back here in a minute. we dropped in on the way home from big sur and i had checked the rates on line before hand which appeared to be $129 for a king. when we got there, they quoted $199, but after asking about the internet rate (their own website), the front desk checked it and gave us that rate so due some research before if you don't have reservations.

the rooms were wonderful, really great bed, big flat screen, in room fridge and coffee maker. we got the room with the soaking tub although didn't use it, it looked really nice, great bathroom ammenities. i figured some large corporation had to have purchased this property with the thought that solvang would catch on more as a wine destination and it turned out the hotel was purchased by the chumash indians which own the casino up the road. they are really spent the money wisely. the restaurant was really upscale and staffed by just great people.

it really seems solvang is trying to downplay its whole scandinavian little town because i noticed alot more wine bars and shops in town. the sidewalk still rolls up at 6 so don't go expecting a night scene, although this place could change all that.

The Corque is my favorite place to spend time with my boyfriend... In fact we make plans to go each month... it is like a vacation getaway, in just a short time... The service is superb, the rooms are always emaculate and so relaxing to be in it's difficult to leave.
See you tomorrow,

This was the last hotel on our weekend trip over Labor Day. It was by far the best we stayed at, and I'm sad we only stayed one night. Our room looked out onto the pool and the mountains behind the hotel. It was amazing. Each room on that side had a patio to sit on and I would recommend everyone ask for that side because it was well worth it. This hotel has been completely remodeled and is incredible. The beds were amazing, the best I slept the entire trip, the bathroom was incredible and perfect for two girls traveling together, allowing us each a sink on different sides. It was large and had plenty of room. The staff was very friendly and I saw them out at the pool and overall just paying attention to their guests. The only people who were not friendly was the staff that checked us in and out. Everyone else was very nice. The hotel is located at the end of a street, right off of the main shopping area. You could spend one whole day shopping in town and then a couple more going to wine tasting in the area. It was amazing, and a beautiful drive to get there. My only warning is if you are driving from LA, make sure you stop in Santa Barbara because there is not much between Solvang and Santa Barbara, and it's about 20 miles in between. Overall it was a great trip and we enjoyed finding this hotel. We would go back again.

We went to Solvang and Santa Ynez with a group of 6 people for my wife's birthday. We found Hotel Corque online and decided to give it a try. As it turns out we were very happy with what we found. Instead of a run down, danish hotel, we enjoyed a modern, clean and up-to-date hotel. It is exactly what Solvang needed. The staff was extremely nice and even gave us an upgrade on one of the rooms for her birthday. The rooms were big, clean and had modern amenties. A nice change from the typical run down hotels you find in Solvang. The location is walking distance to the all the shops and restuarants in town. They have a pool and jazcuzzi that is open until 11am. All in all, we were extremely impressed and will definitely stay there again.

However, stay away from the restaurant (Root 246) absolutely terrible. See review.

I have stayed in Solvang and the surrounding areas for years. I found the Hotel Corque a nice and refreshing change. Our room was comfortable and elegant. The beds were unbelievably comfortable. The shower and bathrooms looked brand new.. We even ordered room service from the wonderful restaurant next door, Root246. I will definately stay here again!!!

This was a great place to stay, we were in town for a concert at Chumash casino and found this location perfect. There had been a power outage the afternoon of check in which was out of the staff''s control. Everyone was doing everything possible to make things right while the key cards weren't working. In the confusion, we were given a room that had not been completely cleaned(the maids probably were in the middle when the outage occurred and marked in prematurely. However, we were given an upgrade with a patio and sincere apologies. Also, there is a business center with 4 computers, perhaps that's new. However, we have no complaints as everything is new and in walking distance. It probably is not the place if eating locally is something that is important since the nearby restuarants close early.

I've never been to Solvang and just loved this hotel and town. We took the kids (8 and 13) on a road trip from Arizona to Sacramento via the coast of California. We stayed in four different hotels on our trip. Three of the hotels were just last minute choices. Luckily I had my laptop and saw the reviews of this hotel. What a wonderful hotel and staff. Our room was upgraded to a pool view. The staff was very friendly and helped us find an excellent restaurant outside of town (we arrived late and most restaurants close rather early). We went to AJ SPURS for dinner (lots of food, fun environment for kids and very yummy lobster). Pauls Pancake House was another recommendation and very good. The hotel pool was nice (nothing spectacular) and the jacuzzi was adequate. The hotel is walking distance to the shops. The lobby is old world with a modern touch. The rooms are updated and modern (the largest Plasma/LCD tv). Would definitely come back. Thanks for a wonderful time.
