Stay one or two nights and eat steak and swim in the pool. So fun and reasonably priced but it's crazy interiors aren't for everyone. It is right by the freeway which didn't hinder our stay at all but might bother some people.

We booked a room with two beds but arrived to be informed it's actually one was actually a sofa. We advised it wouldn't be acceptable and informed nothing could be done about it and $50 compensation would be offered. The manager the next day when he arrived informs us that we should have booked direct. When asked about his opinion... More

This property is unique; from each room having a different theme, to the Copper Cafe, the restaurant, the unique public restrooms, etc. is done first class glitzy. The staff was very friendly and very helpful, the food was superb; from the Copper Cafe to the wedding... More

There is no other hostelry in the land of this ilk. Every room is unique with a different theme, and not with a campy style. The public rooms are tourist attractions all by themselves, especially the ornate diner-like cafe. It is the perfect place to stay between equidistant Los Angeles and San Francisco for those traveling along Rt. 101 who... More

We stayed three nights at the Madonna Inn over a weekend for a Cal Poly alumni event. There were so many weddings at this property (3-4 a day) that there was often no place to park near our room even late at night when we returned to the property. The dimly lit room (the Madonna Suite complete with rocky shower... More

This is the funniest and most awesome place we have stayed on our road trip and we wish we had a few days to stay. Everything is so clean and ornate. Our room had sparkles all over the walls. The dining was great and the bartender Richard was awesome. I highly recommend staying here if you want a clean and... More

Came for daughters 23rd birthday and stayed in the Elegance room. I travel for work, so I am used to hotels. This is so different than your typical big chain hotel. It is family owned and has an intimated feel. Overall this place gets a 10 for unique ambiance, it has a cool pool and spa and check out the... More

Even in Australia we'd heard this hotel was worth a visit. The room was spacious with its famous decor and excellent workmanship. The pool area was great and the dining, both for dinner and breakfast, was generous and friendly. We did have a hiccup on check in when our request for a roll away for our third child was acknowledged... More

We love the unusual, interesting atmosphere of the Madonna Inn, and especially enjoy the music and dancing available every night of the week. The food is delicious, and the servings are more than generous. It is a fun, different and happy environment.
