We stayed in the Krazy Daisy room. It was so over the top. Loved it! Everybody was so nice. The pink champagne cake was so good. Loved that they had a beautiful waterfall by the pool and also that they had a bar right there also.

This is a time warp in many ways. It's also very unique. This isn't the most luxurious place to stay, but that's not why you stay here and that's not why tour groups stop by here. If you like kitsch, this is kitsch heaven. It's worth the spend to go for one of the more expensive rooms I feel, and... More

This must be "a must" if ouy travel by the 101, the hotel is like nothing else in this World... A orgy in thoughtful solutions and odd colours and SHAPEs. This is only possible in the US :=)) Try out a Rock room, it´s superspecial and just the shower is Worth it. Only draw back is the freakin resort fee... More

Holy pinkness! I have been dying to go stay at the Madonna Inn for years! We went last week. I loved every minute of it and can't wait to go back! We had the Cabin Still room with a rock shower. It was great, and at night, it was the darkest room I have ever been in! Seriously, no light... More

This is a Central California roadside attraction that shouldn't be missed if you are in the area . The rooms are all theme based, like the cave room, golf room, and princess type rooms. They are reasonably prices, a little dated, but unique and fun. A great family place . There is a nice pool. Plenty of shops with high... More

Avoid this at any cost! They don't really want to help when booking mistakes have been done and are quick to tell you to go somewhere else fully knowing that you don't have choices when you're here for a wedding. Their approach to fixing mistakes is to offer a "discount" for breakfast, give you a roll-away bed and comping you... More

Came back to the Madonna Inn after 20 years, and not much has changed. We stayed in the Madonna Suite which had it all: fireplace, rock wall, oversized rock shower and bathroom, pink carpets etc. Room could need some renovation. All looks and smells a little bit aged. The lighting was dimmed, and we did not have time to inspect... More

My aunt and I booked our room online and when we arrived we ended up getting another one as that one wasn't available. The room we ended up getting was fine, but when you have your heart set on something else, and this was the most expensive place we stayed at during our 8 day road trip it was a... More

If you love off-beat, unique & kitsch style this place is for you! Unlike anything I've seen before it's a mix between old Vegas meets a disco explosion in the California cliffs. Get ready for color combinations that are blinding, pink & gold everything along with fake rocks, fake flowers and waterfalls all over the place. Wacky, tacky & wonderful.... More
