Been driving by this place for 40 years on our way to somewhere else, and decided to spend a day in San Luis visiting the Carrizo Plains National Monument. Spent $350 on "luxury" suite, room 144 "Barrel of Fun", which turned out to be a Barrel of Horrors! The room featured: 1. a beat up armoire that the hotel encouraged...

This is a quirky little gem we found while riding a motorcycle up Hwy 1 in California. Each room has its own themes and they all have fireplaces which came in handy when drying out our leathers. We stayed in the barrel room and the cave bathroom was super cool. The restaurant has awesome food. I can't wait to go...

Madonna seems to target weddings and bachelorette parties - with all that pink/cute stuff. We stayed just for the fun of it. The themed rooms are awesome. The Portugal room had "tile-like" wallpaper that was a little dark. It was two rooms - which was great for our 9 year old. The bathroom was bright colors. We spent hours in...

We have now stayed at the Madonna Inn several times, with most of our stays in different rooms. My favorite was the Austrian Suite, which we took advantage of in the winter when they had a discount. It was spacious and grand, with high ceilings and a lovely bathroom. It boasted a Toto toilet, with a heated seat and bidet....

It's always fun yo come here. It hasn't changed in 20 years. Restaurant is excellent and they have abalone on the menu. Coffee shop and backers awe noteworthy. Ample parking, take the shuttle up to the rooms if you don't have a car. It's a long uphill walk.

Madonna Inn is so beautiful and ornate and pink. We tried to get a room there recently and they were booked up. We went inside anyway, there is so much to see. We walked around everywhere, downstairs, the gift shop, the Cafe. When you walk in the main door you immediately love the Madonna Inn. So darling. Honeymoon-perfect. And who...

I come up to the Madonna Inn whenever I need a couple days to get some writing done without interruption and it is perfect. Extremely friendly staff and beautiful facilities. Free WIFI all over the resort--sometimes it doesn't work that well in the most remote rooms (which I prefer for working) but I can easily hang out in the bar...

I am the first to admit, this was not my cup of tea, the kitschiest Hotel in the world, BUT it was very well done and we met people who came here time and again, some had favourite rooms, others were on a quest to try out as many rooms as they could. We scored the Indian room, and yes...

The decor is like something you have never seen. Much of it was put together by the founder who was in road construction. Rocks moved in from surrounding hills and fountains surround the outside and inside of the building. In the restaurant the steaks and all food is excellent and the service wonderful.
