My first impression was that this hotel (that we always pass on trips to SF) was that it's for older times. It struck me as a bit tacky, a little too gaudy...but still iconic. So I thought I would give them a try during their recent special ($100 off any room). They had very limited rooms and I was assigned...

I have driven past this place many times since I was a child and always wondered what the place was like other than the famous mens bathroom. Making reservations, follow-up e-mails, and check-in were very easy. We stayed in the "Fox and Hound" room which has a bedroom downstairs with an attached bathroom and a bedroom upstairs. The living room...

It seems like everyone I know has been here at least once and they all rave about the over the top decor and sheer pinkness of the place. They were correct. It's definitely a fantastical (is that a word) visual experience but it's also a great place for a mini vacation. Our room was lovely, the food was incredible -...

Back in the sixty's this was THE place for a pit stop on the drive between the Bay Area and LA...you couldn't beat that waterfall urinal! We have always wanted to stay here at this eclectic hotel, and finally did. Since each room is different, we found ourselves in one of a trio of rooms called Merry-Go (our room)-Round. Everything...

The Madonna Inn is the place to stay if you are going to the San Luis Obispo area for the Hearst Castle. It's fun, funky rooms are a sight to behold. Each room has it own style and theme and can be seen on the hotel's website. Book early or the room you want may not be available. Walk the...

The sprawling gardens and grounds are gorgeous. The interior is kitschy and cheerful. My sister's rehearsal dinner was here. Now every time I come to SLO I NEED to come here and soak in the beauty that is all that pink kitsch. And have a giant slice of the champagne cake, which is the best cake in the world.

This hotel is nice!!! I had wanted to stay here before but never had a chance. We were driving to Southern California and need a place to stay overnight, Expedia had this hotel listed for less than others, so I was excited! Got there late and we were able to pic the room. We stayed in the Portuguese room. Nice....

Wonderful experience, loved the themed rooms. Stayed in the Native American room and enjoyed it. Don't miss the heated toilet seats with some extras. 😀 Staff was very friendly, gave us a choice of a few rooms to choose from and grounds were beautiful.

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...
