If you are in for a true slice of Americana, this is the place to chose on Higheay One. An absolutely unique hotel. After traveling through the beauties of Big Sur the contrast to the artificial, kitschy world in the hotel could not have been starker. Rooms are huge and comfortable, pool smaller than it looks on the photos. The... More

Stayed in the Tack Room (Red leather everything). Each room had a cool theme and the hotel was well kept and had been recently updated. Would have really liked it if they had a guest laundry. There is a running/biking trail near the freeway and the on-site bakery has some good cookies. If you're actually going to use the waterfall... More

I booked at the Madonna room for our 14 wedding anniversary. I would have preferred one of the Rock Rooms as our room was a little plain (we were in the Whispering Hills Rm 187) but the customer service at this place has made me a HUGE fan and I will be back. Everywhere from the front desk to the... More

You go to this hotel because it is the Madonna Inn! Over the top themed rooms that make for a fun and fab stay. We stayed in Elegance - which held to it's charm and soft French furnishings. Room was huge and with all the comfy needs. We sat by the pool in the afternoon and enjoyed some of the... More

We booked a Rock room and it sure had rocks in it! Room 133 Still Cabin was amazing. Downside was that it was that it had the outside steps to 2nd and 3rd floor right outside and many a heavy footed drunken reveller kept us awake until the early hours before the early risers stomped down. That aside the hotel... More

Different themed rooms, in many outlandish colors and motifs, help set the mood. The rooms with a rock waterfall shower reserve well in advance. Our meal in the dining room was fantastic as well. Good show all around.
