Checked in late on Friday and had an awesome dinner at the Steakhouse. Whoa!!! Thee best steak I have ever had. It was worth the price. You will feel like you are transported to back in time to the 60's. The decor and music will make you imagine a different time. We stayed in the Rocky Mountain Room, this room...

If you are in the colour "pink" this is the place to be. Very special and certainly worth to try out. We had a great room (Crystal) and stayed as a family comfortably there. The pool and the hot tube after a long drive were very refreshing and much appreciated.

This hotel is out of this world. It's like nothing you've ever seen before. Maybe in Disney... I love to hear how the hotel basically hasn't changed since the 60s, and to read about all of its wonderful history. If you like to Instagram, this place was made for you. We stayed in two very romantic rooms, with pink shag...

We had a wedding to attend on Saturday May 6th, 2017 and it started at 3pm. Called a week ahead to see if it would be possible to get early check-in to get dressed. Check in is at 4pm and the response was that I would have to call back on Saturday morning (same day of the 6th) to check...

Our son is finishing up his degree at Cal Poly so we decided to finally pay the extra cost and stay at the Madonna for one night. We also had a brunch here with a group of his friends. This place is beyond tacky in the decorations and overdone 10000%, but there also are a lot of amazing details tucked...

Last night I attended an awards banquet in the garden room. The food and service were very good. The location absolutely horrible!!! Our banquet room housed the back upbar for the banquet room next. Every time the doors were open loud music would fill the room and the speakers would have to stop .this was very poor planning for event...

I felt like a old Hollywood glamorous movie star receiving the royal treatment at the Madonna Inn. I the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating to any requests I had during my stay. It was a milestone birthday and spent it in the Crystal Suite/Room. It was absolutely gorgeous in a 1940s Glamour. The room was very clean and everything...

All we did was grab a piece of cake and peak in the lobby before heading out, so all I can review is the delicious lemon coconut cake. I do wish we could have stayed, since it was pretty wild looking. The cake: Fresh, slightly lemony sponge. Very very fresh. Icing was a good quality butter cream. Lemon curd on...

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...
