A lot of the shared spaces throughout the hotel are pink, pink and pink. The details and decor are opulent. The bartenders are chatty and make a stiff drink. The rooms seem to change based on your luck or selection. We stayed in a room with a rock wall interior and rock shower. Other than shtick, the room didn't offer... More

Madonna Inn is fun and kitchy, but you have to overlook at lot of things to enjoy the experience. At check-in, both at the reservation desk and at both restaurants, we received terrible service. We ended up paying $360 for one night in a suite and it simply wasn't worth it. When we arrived, just after 2.30pm, were told to... More

We had the fun Yosemite room with a boulder motif! Comforting and very quiet. The fireplace in the boulders was very romantic. We also loved the pool and jacuzzi area. Ate in the Copper Cafe for breakfast and lunch and had terrific meals.

You go to the Madonna for funky, period. Our daughter had her wedding in Morro Bay, and after the ceremony, the wedding group stayed at the Madonna. This hotel is great for such an occasion. It's wacky, and if you are in a festive mood, it's fun. I can't imagine staying here for any other reason. The rooms are so... More

We stopped in the cave room. It was fun but small and dark so if you don't like enclosed areas, it may not be for you. The bar is whacky, loads of crazy styling and very colourful. It's like going back in time with a twist of madness. Food was ok, we went for steak and sat in a booth.... More

We stayed here one night as part of our Pacific Coast Highway Drive. Our room was just as pictured. We loved the room- one of the Rock Shower Rooms. The facility was beautiful and well maintained. We arrived early, and were allowed to check in, as our room was ready. The staff was extremely nice, and full of information upon... More

First, the grounds are lovely and they offer great little shops, two restaurants and a spa. We booked a two-night stay in their Cabin Still room. My review is only for this room. Upon first entering the room, we loved its looks, but then one we stayed, we found its several downsides. One, it was fairly dark even with every... More

The decor of this hotel is quite unique. Owned by the Madonna family the hotel is decorated by Mrs. Madonna herself. The rooms in this hotel are carefully decorated to make each one have the feel of a home rather than a hotel room. The Madonna Cafe proudly display their signature Champagne cake. It was a goid cake but a... More

I never cared much for reality and the people who designed this is weirder than I am and they get away with it. In fact, they even make a living of it. There is things to see in every room. I really love it.

Wow indeed. It was my partners 50th Birthday so we wanted something unique and memorable to celebrate and the Madonna Inn provided this in quantity. The rooms themselves are remarkable and provide something different over and above other hotels. All the rooms may not be to everyone's taste but there is a room there for everyone, you just need to... More
