Charming, comfortable, slightly weatherbeaten inn, dating from 1890, with warm, unobtrusive service. Excellent breakfast every morning on the terrace though I largely fortified myself for the conference I was attending with peanut butter on toast and a mug of black tea! Located in quiet residential district with a good Italian restaurant, Mio Vicino, nearby.

we stayed here over the weekend of the 4th of July. Theresa was a terrific host - excellent breakfasts. The best part of it was that we brought our grandkids and daughter-in-law down from Mountainview for the day to play in the pool for about 8 hours! Beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of room in the sitting... More

We stayed at the Inn for three nights. Tess was very welcoming and made you feel at home. The breakfast is to die for, with home made jams, eggs, and fresh fruit. During the day and evenings, she has port, homemade chocolate chip cookies (if they make it into the night), tea, and instant coffee always available. The room we... More

Traveled out here for a competition and this Was an excellent place to stay. Owners were very accommodating to our early morning schedule. They served an excellent breakfast every morning and with the pool and hot tub in the back yard allowed for a great place to relax in between competition. Would suggest this place to any traveler. Great place... More

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
