“A Great Stay with Great Hosts.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

I would definitely go back and recommend this B&B to others. The building is original, the furnishings are very comfortable while fitting in well, and the garden and pool area provide an enjoyable place to hang out if you have the time (and you should take the time). Above all, Ralph and Theresa are very warm and welcoming hosts. And did I mention the cookies?

The hostess was friendly, the daily display of cookies and breakfasts were a delight! Some downsides: ants by the coffee, very sticky drawers in the rooms, tiny sinks, intermittent internet [which was fixed on the last day]. However, these were all minor. The location is wonderful, a short walking distance to the post office, shopping, & restaurants. It's a short drive from the San Jose airport, adding to the ease. Thank you, Madison St. Inn!

I am glad that this couple enjoyed their stay at the Madison street Inn, despite its quirks:)
Being in the HEART of silvan Valley, we live for our Internet connection( sadly!) .
We just went through some defective router issues, but happily this has been totally resolved and our Internet is better than ever!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Madison Street Inn. This was our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast. We experienced comfortable, relaxing accommodations, including varied, delicious breakfast entrees, and enlightening conversations with the owners and guests. While there, it became our home away from home. We are looking forward to our next trip to California so we can, again, visit with Theresa and Ralph at Madison Street Inn. – J. & B.

Room Tip: The Madison Room was perfect for the two of us and it has its own bathroom.

Enjoy the 1890 house and furnishings, relax in the hot tub and heated pool and soak in the friendly family like atmosophere that the inkeepers Theresa and Ralph have created with the Inn. Like to jog in the morning? - They will even schedule you in a time with their pet Husky, Lana. The breakfasts are great, and if you are lucky enough to catch one of their dinners you won't be dissappointed! Great hosts, accomodations and location. Staying in town a while, ask about their extended stay options. :-)

Traveling up the California coast via Amtrak to San Jose we found the perfect Inn at the end of out trip.
Close to Amtrak, San Jose airport, and an easy walk to Cal Train, the Madison Street Inn is perfect!
Theresa was so gracious at our late arrival presenting us with a wine and cheese plate that hit the spot!
Also, the home made cookies waiting in the hall were to die for! Ok, diet next week….
After a wonderful breakfast the next morning, took a morning stroll over to Cal Train for a day trip up to San Fran. Again, could not be more convenient for folks that don’t mind a walk about and access to mass transit.
Recommend highly!

A coworker and i stayed at the Madison Street Inn for a conference in San Jose. Our rooms were lovely, as was the Inn as a whole. Theresa's breakfasts were delicious, and we really enjoyed our stay.
