Nice hosts. Room ready for late arrival. Sheets were top notch thread count. Breakfast was available for early departure. They even gave me a ride to SCU! It is an old home and a BnB so you need to realize it's homey, not a 4 star resort. They do have a pool fire pit etc.

Stayed here many times, each time very enjoyable and relaxing. Great service, always very clean and fresh, great breakfast and the pool area is second to none. All of the rooms/beds were very comfortable and I never had a bad nights sleep here. Easy drive from the airport and so close to all the attractions Santa Clara has to offer... More

This inn is a true treasure with a comfy parlor and a big sheltered back yard where we spent the evening in a hot tub and had an amazing breakfast in the morning. All of this (and the home made cookies) is of course ample reason to stay there and be super comfortable, but the kind hosts made our stay... More

We stayed at the Inn for my husband's birthday, on our last evening of our visit to our son and his girlfriend. Such an enchanting inn, and Theresa and Ralph are so kind! Our only regret was that we had so little time to speak with them, but thoroughly enjoyed Theresa visiting with us and the other couple we breakfasted... More

As parents of a SCU student, we discovered this B&B last year. First we loved the proximity to the school (easy walking distance). Then we loved the comfortable bed, the friendly owners and staff (Kate is wonderful!). Breakfast in the lovely patio is perfect, both for the food and the chance to talk to the other parents or visitors, it... More

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

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the Inn. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay here. The room you stayed in is small for 2 but it sounds like you managed:) Since there is a little we can do about room size, we aim to please with our food and hospitality and seems... 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.
