40 years ago, while driving the coast in who knows what condition, and having to use a restroom, I pulled off the highway and entered the Madonna Inn. I'd say the experience of using their restroom and seeing just a little of the hotel during that encounter was enough to say that I have encountered the Twilight Zone, and loved every minute of it. I've never forgotten that experience, so that when the opportunity arose for a planned road trip up US 1 from LA to San Francisco with my wife, the Madonna Inn was a must stay, even for just one night. We had picked Bridal Falls. With its green carpeting, green painted ceiling, rock walls, rock bathroom and shower, and pinks and reds sofa and chairs, ornate gold mirrors, stained glass main window, and flowery bedspread, this is the kind of place that you come back and say..."you won't believe where I've been" and you'd better have pictures to prove it. We ate dinner at their Gold Rush restaurant, which was as ostentatious and over the top as being in Las Vegas circa 1955, as well as being very good, although I can't remember what we had. Sorry. The pool are on their website, possibly because of the use of a wide angle lens, was more formidable and inviting than in the picture, and I could see lounging around their infinity pool, the kind where you walk in as it gradually deepens, and their waterfall, and their gardens, although when we were there it was cloudy and cool. Still loved being there and look forward to another visit, hopefully when the sun is shining. I would highly recommend a stay here. All the rooms are quirky in their own ways, as evidenced by the photos on their website.
