My wife and I stayed here for one night recently on our honeymoon, while travelling up the California coast. We had researched the Madonna Inn online and picked out a few rooms we'd like to stay in. Calling the Inn directly was helpful since some of the rooms were already booked and it helped us narrow the options down quickly.
If you are thinking of staying here for just a night or two, embrace the tackiness. If you are not easily amused and like to take yourself seriously, or you want a real luxury experience, go somewhere else.
We stayed in the Swiss Rock room. The floor was all rock, and a little cold, but the room had its own heating/cooling unit. The bed was big and comfortable and the rock shower was a neat oddity. We had dinner in the Madonna's restuarant, the Steak House. The experience was equally as tacky, but the staff was great. Very friendly and accomodating, and they are clearly experienced with honeymooners and birthday parties. The food was good, but not excellent.
The highlights would have to be the pool area (on the side of the hill complete with rocky waterfall) and the inn's breakfast. The food at the Copper Cafe was excellent, though not provided with the room. All-in-all: tacky and cute, expensive for 3 stars, but worth a night or two.
