We stayed in the Caveman Room for one night and it was so much fun! The room was truly awesome with floor to ceiling rock and an even crazier bathroom setup. The shower was awesome with water coming out of the rocks above and the sink was incredibly crazy trying to wash your hands on a waterfall. I probably wouldn't... More

We stayed at the Madonna Inn. It was all that we expected. Very kitsch and quite tacky in places. But the rooms were all different. Very cool place. We really enjoyed the room. Very comfortable and great place to stay You got to stay here

Very comfortable beds. Shower was lovely. Great pool and jacuzzi's. We had breakfast here, good sized portions, freshly made and good value. I... More

I jokingly suggested Madonna Inn while planning a CA trip. After flipping through the many website pages of crazy, unique, adorable, scary, and/or authentic room choices, we decided that going to Madonna Inn was a must. We kept this hotel secret from our 8 year olds as a surprise - and what a surprise it was! We were only able... More

Stayed here for one night on our honeymoon. We were in the caveman room. Completely covered in rocks from floor to ceiling and there was even a waterfall for a shower. The whole place is decorated amazingly. The restaurant was good, you've got to see it to believe it!

I have been wanting to go to the Madonna in for some time and was thrilled upon my arrival. A must see! As I adore kitsch and overblown style this place did not disappoint. All staff was lovely and helpful, food was very retro but nice. Wish I could have stayed longer. The place was very clean, pillows and comforters... More

WE only had one night, but absolutely loved it. Relaxed at beautiful pool, and the rooms were wonderful. Wish we had more time to enjoy the rest of the place, the decor in restaurant was beautiful. Highly recommend the place to stay if in San Luis!!!!

Highly recommend a stay here especially if you're doing the west coast route between LA and San Francisco .. It's a great midway stopover.. The rooms are superb and all unique, the setting is excellent too with a heated pool as a bonus... We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and had a great time, visit their website to get a... More

Property is definitely unique and rooms were clean. However, our room was noisy, you could here the goings on in the rooms above and next to us. The bed was very soft and internet coverage, in our room, poor to spotty. Considering the price, I would recommend looking elsewhere.
