The Madison Street Inn is on a corner lot, with the hosts' house on the adjoining lot. We enjoyed the Madison Room (front room just inside left of front door). This is a nicely furnished, well-kept up old house with high ceilings. Also on the first floor are the parlor and sitting rooms, dining room, and two other guest rooms.... More

This was my first Bed and Breakfast experience and I LOVED it!!!!! My daughter and I stayed two nights in the Harrison room. The room itself was very clean and cute, though it was a little on the small side, but that was no big deal for us, for the only time we were really in the room was to... More

Its worn, a bit dirty, needs updating. Bed was okay, coverlet faux velvet? Didn't stay for breakfast. You have to drag your luggage upstairs. Really nice backyard and pool. Good location. The railing going to the kitchen is sticky. The front door needs cleaning up from overload of stickers.

Would like to thank this guest for her input. It's always good to get feed back on things we can improve on. While we are proud of our commendations from various groups, the front door window did need an update and believe it looks a lot better. I'm sorry this guest did not enjoy the soft comfy wrap we had... More

I discovered this gem late last year and have been staying there since. Theresa and Ralph are simply incredible hosts and make you feel totally at home with awesome breakfasts and family-like dinner gatherings. Kudos to you both for all you do!

Charming house, comfortable bed, welcoming hosts, fantastic breakfasts, plus chocolate chip cookies every night! Nice neighborhood near Santa Clara University, within walking distance of several good restaurants. The owner and staff were so friendly and helpful. We'll definitely stay again.

We stayed two nights, slept well in a very comfortable bed. Tess has fresh chocolate chip cookies and Port ready for the guests. We loved the hot tub as well,... More

What a wonderful place owned by amazing, interesting, giving, lovely people. Theresa and Ralph are wonderful hosts and have obviously been doing this for a long time. They have always treated me like family. What a blessing! Wine in the evening. Special dinners around the fire. Amazing, healthy breakfasts. Eat by the pool when it's warm enough.

Although the innkeepers are friendly, our bed was hard and uncomfortable...my husband and I kept rolling towards the center of the bed and tossed and turned all night. Room is overcrowded. Unable to find any coffee in the morning....and breakfast was a bit unorganized. On a positive note, they allowed us to arrive an hour early & served us wine... More

We like to feel the Madison Street Inn has very reasonable rates for the area and happy these guests found that to be the case. The rooms are small and sometimes it s a challenge to get all the conveniences in ( including chair, table , TV/DVD, closet space) but we try to have everything the guest might need. I... More

Another great getaway with wonderful breakfasts by the pool and great visits with other guests. Theresa and Ralph are outstanding Innkeepers. They make every guest feel welcome. We called in advance that we would be arriving later than expected and they had the hot tub ready when we arrived at 9:30. Checkout was very flexible. Two nights wasn't long enough.
