"Great place, bad mattress"
Hotel was great. Fun location and enjoyed the themed rooms. My boys loved it. Only thing keeping it from a perfect score is the mattress wasn't conforrable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It is one of those places you always dream about staying but can't find the right time. This was it! The Fabulous Fifties room was fun, the spa was great and the restaurant food was delicious. Staff was wonderful and amenities were great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK, could be much better"
- No internet/WiFi service; guest services said something about the server being reset, the technician not answering their request, etc. Nonsense, they should fire the technician and replace their service provider with a reliable one. - Neighborhood - too close to the highway, lots of noise. - Room comfort and cleanness: was clean, but carpet was quite […] old warn, smelled, and didn't give a clean feeling.

"a night stay"
we didn't really get to have the experience but it was a beautiful place to stay and we most definitely come back and stay for a weekendGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a strange and glorious place this is."
We've both heard of it and passed it on the way up and down the coast. Now, in middle age, we finally got to stay here. Everything that you have heard about the place is true: Each room is unique and the main lodge is overdecorated in the extreme. Still, this spot is a work of love, one man's vision, utterly uncorporate. I'm so glad that it persists, […] and in such fine condition. I absolutely recommend that you and your honey (and family!) spend at least one night here. It's worth the experience! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"thanksgiving @ the Madonna Inn"
We had a great thanksgiving dinner my daughter and I truly enjoyed our stay and will come back again this summer and bring more family members with upGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great deal and fun energy!"
The only downside to this hotel was the mattress in our room. It was a bit droopy in the middle. Other than that, the hotel was great! The bar was hopping and had a great energy. The pool and fitness center were up to date and well maintained. Love this hotel and the uniqueness and energy it offers!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gaudy in a great way"
We had a fun time. Love the theme room aspect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My wife and I stayed in Room 177. First the negatives on the room: (1) There was no "chest of drawers" to enable us to unpack our suitcases and store our clothes, so we lived out of our suitcases for two days (2) No reading lamps on bedside tables (only a floor lamp on the far wall), (3) room lighting consisted mostly of a dozen harsh ceiling "can" […] lights, (4) The bathroom was very tight and the door from the bedroom would bump into the individual using the second basin. On the positive side, the bedroom had a very nice rock wall on one side, and the room was very clean. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room too close to the freeway, very noisy throughout the night. Only way to change rooms was additional charge. Parking lot dark and on a steep slope but was the only way to get to restaurant. Very difficult for my elderly mother to walk. Kudos to waitress who called us a golf cart to return us to room. Daughter loved the pool and the robes were very […] nice.

"The world-famous must-visit Madonna Inn"
I've been waiting years to check out the over-designed kitsch of the Madonna Inn and it delighted at every turn! The surprising thing is that it doesn't feel at all tacky - because it's all very well done to a high standard, it's immaculately maintained and the staff are fantastic. A MUST STAY if you are visiting the region. We stayed in the 'Time of […] Your Life' room, with a purple stone wall, brown shag carpet and masquerade masks - it was fabulous!

"Returning satisfied customer"
Weather was the only weak point being overcast and a bit cool. The Hotel was once again wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pricey but a fun treat"
Had a great time, have often driven by but never stayed overnight. Room was funky and fun, bath had been updated beautifully. Nice windows that open easily. Easily accessible parking. The pool and spa were a highlight, lovely infinity pool set into the hillside with waterfalls and gazebo, two hot tubs. Many activities available...horseback riding and […] tennis, music in the restaurant, lovely gardens. Quiet and restful, and, the best hotel robes I've ever found. A soft, open weave that was not too hot or bulky. I wanted to buy one. They greet you with freshly baked cookies at check in. Don't miss the bakery. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We where very happy with madana inn, it was original.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"the cake was actually delicious"
We stayed for a bachelorette party. It was fun. The restaurants are amazing but overpriced. I'm glad I saw it but don't think I need to go again. The room was clean, the cake was actually delicious, the downtown is a total college town, ugh. The pool is amazing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A one of a kind!! Must see!"
Great hotel and convenient location. Loved the decor and the beautiful grounds! Have wanted to stay here for years, and finally fulfilled that wish! Would love to return!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"CALL before you go to ensure room type or else!"
Booked a "multiple bed" room and i got a room with one bed and they wouldn't bring a bed in because of fire hazard even though the room was huge. shower smelled of cat urine and was moldy/slimy. They didn't care to help me and said because i booked through hotels.com just because it says 2 beds doesn't mean that's what we'll get. i had to sleep on the […] floor. Miserable experience.

It's was a enjoyable stay for the whole family. We loved the view from the infinity pool. Couldn't get enough of it. Our son loved the horse back riding in the morning. He met a new friend Poncho.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Madonna Inn was BEAUTIFUL! Just as beautiful as its surroundings!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Captains bridge room a little dark"
We enjoyed our stay at the Madonna Inn for the quirkiness. We were disappointed in not being able to choose our room since we booked with a third party (Expedia). I don't think that is right since we were paying customers. The room we had was very dark and even with all the lights on we could hardly see our clothes in the suitcases. There was a unpleasant […] odor that I think came from the carpet because the room seemed clean enough. The shower and bathroom were very nice with great water pressure.

"A WONDERFUL MUST STAY ON THE CA CENTRAL COAST"
My husband first stayed at the Madonna Inn over 20 years ago...The fun feature is every room is individually decorated. We had the INDIAN ROOM...and it was very pleasant. I am happy to report the grounds, pool and restaurant are lovingly maintained. My only negative comment is: a resort fee is now charged... whether you use the pool and/ or spa area […] or not. We did not as we were heading for Santa Barbara early next morning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely hotel, unique experience, would definitely stay there again. Free parking, lovely staff, great facilities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Too hyped up"
The bed was not very comfortable, the water pressure in the shower sucked (although the rock shower was radical), and you can hear people stomping down the stairs all night long. The pool and pool bar were nice, but for some reason, everyone there thought it was a good idea to bring 20 children with them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome great location"
I love madonna inn, I've been going there since I was 16 I'm now 56. The location is awesome to the beach , Hearst castle, highway 1 scenic route. Pismo beach Morrow bay all with in great access. Staff is great easy check in nice pool area and spa and dinner was fantastic. Thank you to everyone at Madonna inn who works so hard to keep such wonderful […] memories for me for over 40 years. I have continued to share your place with my children and now my grand children and they too have come to call you there fondest memories. Thanks Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed the unique room and whole idea of room themes. Ours (room 178)was mountain experience. Only negative comment was room lighting was inadequate for our taste. Restaurant was fine and the spinach salad was delightful. The ala carte baked potato was "to die for."Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is awsome beautiful clean love the horses and the unique rooms but the food at the restaurants was awfull Expensive steak house and the diner food was really badGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Crazy place - can't beat it!"
Had the Marry room. It was so shiny I swear it hurt my eyes. But you get use to it and wake up next day thinking, "these designers was out of their mind high when they did this, I love it!" Great rooms, plenty of space and top noch bathroomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good service. When we first walked into the room, it felt musty, which was mostly solved opening all the windows and turning the A/C on. The robes we had were old and needing to be replaced in my opinion. But most hotels I stay at don't even give me robes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"small let down"
This place is known for its rooms being different. In my opinion just because you have a picture on the wall does not make it italy. If that was the case my dauters room is paris and sons is Tatooine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Somewhere in Time"
The Madonna Inn is simply one of California's greatest treasures!!! It's like walking back in time to the 1960s to the coolest hotel ever. Our room was beautiful, clean, well-appointed and comfortable (theme: San Francisco). The public areas have to be seen to be believed - simply gorgeous! The workers were friendly and helpful. Now, for the pool. It's […] wonderful!! Pretty setting, warm water and a graduated entry so you just gli-i-i-i-i-i-ide in. My entire family LOVED everything about our stay at this fabulous spot!

We stayed in madonna inn when we drove from LA to SF. The location is great- right in the middle between the two cities. We don't really know what the area has to offer since we didn't leave the hotel. The pool is nice and the view is relaxing and great. The rooms are amazing- so pretty and sooooo tacky (which I love).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It's a little tired"
Heard so much about this Inn but it was a little disappointing. This establishment needs a little updating. There was nothing special about the room except that it was all pink.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very pleased with the room, the pool area and breakfastGenuine Expedia guest review
"such a unique and fun experience"
We had a great time at the pool and the food at the restaurant was great. Even bought a cake the next morning to take to friends :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Last minute decision that we didn't regret. Enjoyed the pool with the waterfall and the patio bar. Went for a walk then enjoyed lunch. Every room is unique with lots of details. Great privacy; we never heard anything from any of the other rooms, which were occupied. We appreciated the attention to detail and the quality of the little things like the […] lotion and body wash. The staff was friendly and attentive in the restaurant and onsite shops. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Las Vegas version of a Motel 6"
It's a truly unique hotel and I love all the different rooms. It was a little disappointing not to be able to pick the room that I wanted, especially when I was willing to pay more money! The cafe was delicious and the pool/hot tub was extremely relaxing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My friend and I were just passing through on a road trip and decided to stay at the Madonna Inn. Since we booked through Hotels.com we couldnt select the room we wanted. We stayed in the Rose Room which was cool (also handicap accessible), but not as funky as I was hoping for. The room was clean and the bed was comfy so I would definitely stay there […] again and check out another room. Short drive to the downtown area. Stayed on a Thursday night when they have their farmers market and a ton of yummy street food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"For Something truly Unique"
Rooms are so unique and fun. Pool was warm. Main restaurant was great. Food excellent, live band with dancing, truly a fabulous stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was very PINK. We expected that though since this hotel is famous for having weirdly decorated rooms. Room was clean, toilet was self-warming and shower was nice. Pool was amazing--warm and large!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Unique And Not To Be Missed"
The Madonna Inn is one of a kind and should be experienced at least once (I've stayed at the hotel twice and have eaten here many times over the years). My only complaint is that I did not find the mattress that comfortable, otherwise, everything was great because it is all so unique. I love the kitsch of it all. The staff is beyond nice, the food is […] good, the desserts are a cut above. I personally recommend the toffee cake, but they are all good. This is a great place to take children because of the decor. Do not miss the men's bathroom - just make sure it is empty before you go in. A big recommend from me, most especially if you have kids. Also, the area is filled with things to do. We went to Hearst's Castle (approximately an hour away) and Cambria, which is a charming town (approximately 1/2 hour away) and Morro Rock. Pismo Beach is also nearby. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fun idea, Tired Rooms"
Wouldn't stay there again as the rooms felt old and tired...the idea of the hotel is great though and the pool is BEAUTIFUL and warm. Overpriced for a novelty hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time. This is a wonderful hotel with a great staff and so many nuances for every type of traveler. Delicious food, tasty cocktails. You do have to bring some dollars, but it's worth every penny. Pool was awesome. Everyone should stay here at least once in their lifetime.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel with Character"
Overall I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Hotel has a lot of "character". Nice pool area, and I enjoyed my dinner at the bar/restaurant. I had issues with wifi in multiple areas of the property for ipad/iphone which I reported twice with no resolution. They did credit my resort fee since that was all they could do with a 3rd party booking. I would stay […] here again if I was in the area or passing through. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"fun place to stay in beautiful san luis obispo"
The Madonna Inn is a really fun hotel that is clean, with great service, and has great amenities. We didn't spend too much time at the hotel, but we had the Fabulous 50s room which was really fun, and we made use of the pool which was great! It's heated and open late until 11:00. Definitely would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The facility and the rooms are unique and wondeful-- all rooms are "thematic" and ours had great detail and furnishings that reflected Native American Culture. At check-in, however, it was clear we were not in the "same class" as guests who registered directly with the hotel or in more expensive rooms. The check-in personnel made me feel like it was […] a bother to register me, but other guests got smiles and polite small talk. Although check-out was at noon, our room was not ready until almost 4 and people who arrived after us in adjacent rooms were helped first and were placed in their rooms before us. To the credit of the late shift, they were apolgetic and polite. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
