We stayed for one night in August 2013. We were a UK family on a California road trip in an RV but we wanted a break from the road and had heard about the amazing Madonna Inn. We were not disappointed at all, this place is fantastic! You could book your actual room online in advance, they are all different...

Beautiful and serene. Lovely flower gardens and grazing cows. Our Fabulous Fifties room was fabulously pink and blue with ornate decor trimmed in gold. Very clean room. Sounds tacky but it was actually pretty cool. Was a fun, novelty place to stay for one night but bring your earplugs! Gave a 4 out of 5 stars because the walls are...

When friends heard that we were going to be driving up the coast from LA, they told us we had to stop at the Madonna Inn if for nothing else, then to see the gift shop. I'm so glad we did. I only wish we had time to stay longer! There literally was something to see around every corner! It's...

This truly is a fun and unique hotel that seems like a Disneyland for adults. Everywhere you look there are surprises. Each room is different, and unique making you feel as though you entered fantasy land. The decor both in the rooms, the dining areas, the gardens and even the tennis courts (which are pink) are truly unique and set...

We stayed in the Caveman suite 'cause, well, it's the Caveman suite. Because of the novelty of it all -- and perhaps the awesome waterfall shower -- it saved itself a 3 star rating. I would hesitate to describe it as a luxury experience, however, even though the price was luxury out the wazoo. It could have maybe, possibly squeezed...

We drove towards Santa Barbara and made a quick stop at the Madonna Inn. Valentins Day was a few days prior so it was still decorated in that theme. It is worth a stop because it's so unique. It's a must see for American kitsch. The cafe was packed with people eating their lunch. The staff was very friendly, let...

The hotel was pretty much what I expected. Very unique and definitely very different. The common areas were beautifully decorated. Breakfast at the cafe was delicious, however dinner at the steakhouse was just okay. The dessert champagne cake was amazing however. We originally checked into the swiss alps room. I was not a fan as it mostly just looked old...

Interesting and well maintained property, retro chic throughout. Unique and individual rooms with sadly paper-thin walls. Other guests near us seemed to be there more to party than spa. Fitness center was basic but fine.

The Madonna Inn is every bit as fabulous as you hope it might be when planning your trip. The rooms and the amenities more generally are a riot of colour, kitsch and questionable taste. Like the love child of the Flintstones, Barbie, Disneyland and Dolly Parton! We stayed in the Lovebirds room (with rock shower) and also in the Ren...

Wow, what a find! Truly magical from the time you walk through the main doors. My children were completely amazed with the interior decor. We visited for lunch and the food we ordered was lovely and plenty of it. The children even had bottomless pink lemonade. Our waitress was ever so nice and friendly and couldn't do enough for us,...
