Our stay at the Hotel Corque in Solvang was such a pleasant experience! We stayed two nights here on our recent visit to Solvang, California and loved it.
Hotel Corque is located on Alisal Road, just a few doors down from the Solvang Windmill and a TON of shopping and restaurants. Most things in Solvang are within walking distance to the hotel, so you don’t have to worry about driving to many places during your stay here – which also means you can wine taste at some of the local cellars in town without having to find a DD!
CHECKING IN – LOBBY & DECOR
Checking in was a breeze – they even had a room ready for us two hours before check in. Pro tip: it never hurts to ask if your hotel has a room ready for you early! More times than not, you’ll find success. We were just passing by the hotel on our little self-guided walking tour of Solvang and popped in to check with them, but you can also call ahead.
Just look at this place! It is tastefully updated and modern. There’s also complimentary coffee, water, and tea on the second floor for guests to have at their leisure.
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE ROOM
Do you ever walk into a hotel room and just breathe a huge sigh of relief? That’s how we felt when first walking in. You just get that feeling that you know you are going to be comfortable during your stay. We stayed in one of their studio rooms with a king bed, but they also have rooms available with balconies and views of the Santa Ynez Mountains.
The bed was SO comfortable. We got two pretty good nights of sleep here. The hallway was pretty quiet too, and our room was on the second floor, so it was nice and peaceful.
The bathrooms were nice and modern, very clean, and we had TWO sinks! Whenever we travel, single sinks tend to get a little cluttered with stuff from two people, so I really appreciated having the separate space.
The shower was great, and the best part is that the shower head was high enough for Micah (yep, that is a legit problem we have at a lot of places).
COMFORT IN A ROBE
I love having hotel robes! There are two complimentary robes for you to wear around in your hotel room (not to take home – darn!). It’s nice to lounge around the room in comfort.
OTHER STAND-OUT AMENITIES
Wine glasses in your room – what else would you expect being in wine country? We put those to good use!
Swimming pool & hot tub – we didn’t get to test these out, but they have a really beautiful pool area. If we had stayed here longer, we certainly would have taken advantage of them.
In-room dining (I believe the menu is from the Root 246 Kitchen)
Complimentary shuttle to the nearby Chumash Casino

The closest dining option to the hotel is Root 246 – located just next door to the hotel. I definitely recommend this place for Happy Hour. Try the fish tacos! You can get two nice-sized, crispy fish tacos for only $6 on happy hour (or 4 for $12 if you’re hungry). Not a bad dinner! Their charcuterie board was alright, but I prefer the one over at Succulent Cafe more.
You can also take advantage of the free shuttle offered by the hotel to the Chumash Casino where you can dine at either The Willows (steakhouse) or the Creekside Buffet.
Solvang is such a compact little place, you can really walk to any restaurant in town. Check out our review of Succulent Cafe – less than a 10-minute walk from Hotel Corque. That’s where the charcuterie board action is!
