A wonderful/ fantastic hotel and restaurant if you what to see something extra. Although the food is a little expensive is it great. But what makes the hotel and restaurant so incredibly special is the interior. With a theme somewhere between Moulin Rouge and m and super kitsch style. A real pearl you have to visit if you are nearby....

We had high expectations of 'The Madonna' and were not disappointed. Our room was simply amazing, with good amenities, and we had the most amazing nights sleep there, really comfortable and quiet. The pool and hot tub area really first rate but the highlight for us was the bar and resturant areas. One really got a feel for how this...

We paid the same for our theme room as I did at the 4 Seasons Beijing in 2012 (which might be higher now.) Basically you are paying hotel prices for an offbeat experience, which has a few taxes and a "resort" fee thrown in. The room was fun for my 11 yr. old granddaughter,but they have an antiquated floor cooler...

This is no Ritz and the place is expensive but it is extremely unique and more of an experience than a luxury stay. The pool was amazing and we stayed here for a friend's birthday party while staying in SLO. Definitely an easy place to bring girls back to!

Thought this would be kitschy and fun. But this a motel- with old musty carpets, comforters which look like they haven't been cleaned since the brady bunch, and a weird circus to boot. We ran away about 10 minutes after seeing our room- everyone was too grossed out. We went to a clean, comfortable hampton inn 5 minutes away, at...

We go out of our way to stay here while traveling. This place is so fun - great pool/spa. The pool bartender was new and just learning drinks - so these were a but suspect. This time we went horseback riding, which was wonderful. From the top of the mountain, there are views of the massive Madonna property. We stayed...
