It is my family's tradition to have Christmas Eve dinner at the Goldrush steakhouse each year. The decorations are always fun and lovely. Service is fabulous every time we go there. I'm shocked at the prices of meals but they are in keeping with similar level restaurants in the area. This particular Christmas Eve the dinners were not so great....

I've never had the privilege of adding here until my wife brought me here. I want to say this is a place to come and eat dinner on a regular basis. It is a bit more high-priced. The atmosphere buildings and rooms including the bathrooms are pretty breathtaking though. Yes the bathrooms do have waterfalls for urinals. I will say...

I had been desperate to visit The Madonna Inn for as long as I can remember and was a lucky enough to book a night there with my boyfriend on our route 101 road trip! We had the long and short room which was as wonderfully over the top as I had hoped for! Dinner in the unbelievably decorated dining...

We stayed for two nights at the beginning of our one-week couples vacation. The first night, the neighbors next-door to us were very loud, playing music and shouting. My husband had to call the front desk at 12:30 AM and then I had to call again at 2 AM. I appreciate that the front desk sent security to the room....

The restaurant here has some really awesome decor. They have some really nice pastries and pies. The ambiance is fantastic. Courteous staff. Plenty of parking space. There is a gift shop with merchandise. The men's room has a hand pump!!!

Overall a nice experience(mainly because of the delightful outdoor areas, pool and hot tubs) but some significant negatives; starting with a grouchy, unhelpful, miserable elderly front desk staff. He KIND of looked 'Santa' like.... But was anything but. The Inn is indeed quirky, with pink and grapes just about everywhere: the Rock rooms dark (as one would expect any self...

We did not eat or stay at this property. However, we did walk through the common areas and shops. It is definitely a unique experience. There are postcards of every room on the property. The dining room is 50's style with pink rounded booths.

First off this wasn't my choice for a stay and I must say I was pleasantly surprised in many ways. The hotel is impeccably maintained, rooms, exterior, restaurant. The decor is over the top, but that's why you come here. Our particular room was well odd. The "Round Room", exposed large bay window with brocade black out curtains only, so...

2nd time to stay. As most reviewers agree, this may be the quirkiest and tackiest inn in the US in a good way! Room is big, clean and comfortable, but in somewhat a little unpractical. Additions of coffee table or table with chairs and refrigerator to rooms would have made our stay more comfortable. Great setting, nice pool and hot...

Did a quick girls getaway with my sister and nieces and they loved loved loved this place. Every room is very unique and very comfortable. This is not your typical hotel chain type hotel. Its very quirky, and lots and lots of pink. The infinite pool is amazing and super warm for those late night swims. The staff from the...
