We stayed here for one night on our trip up route 1 from Santa Monica to San Francisco. It's a must !!! You will never stay in a hotel like it.the rooms are all themed and very quirky tho full of every modern amenity. We walked Into San Luis obispo to eat,it's about a 20 min walk. I really wouldn't...

Yes, I know, it seems so silly, and it is quite expensive, and they add on that annoying "resort fee", but the Madonna Inn is somebody's extraordinary dream, and they have worked hard to provide an experience that is out of the ordinary. Everyone is so nice and it is fun to browse through the pictures of the room and...

If you've ever driven past the Madonna Inn and thought "One day I'll stay in that crazy place" then you definitely should! It is just how you would imagine and more. We stayed in the "regular" rooms (Pioneer for us and Swiss Chalet for my parents) and were amazed by the size. Couches, big, comfortable beds, even a little office...

My sister and I took a road trip down the California coast and a friend of hers said her dream was to go to the Madonna Inn. We looked it up and it sounded like fun, so we booked a room, although it was one of the last rooms available and not cheap. We thought it might be a fun,...

I loved this place. The pool alone with magnificent views of the mountains was out of this world! Our room "Showboat" was big enough for our family of 4 (Two singles and one King). A terrific price instead of two separate rooms for our older children. Clean, comfortable and roomy, very nice! Horses in the field, hiking trails around, beautiful...

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!
