Aside from not being able to get into our room early, like we requested because we had our daughter's wedding rehearsal to get to at 4pm, it was a wonderful stay. Room was nice and clean. (A little pricey)

This funky resort should be visited if you're in the area. They have thought of everything for the guests' comfort including pool, garden, tennis courts, etc. There are two restaurants, one very pricey and one more affordable. Food was very good. Now, the decor is what makes the place. I've never experienced something quite like this. Almost psychodelic. Our initial...

Quite worth the visit for cocktails, if only to confirm this place is rather unusual, to say the least. We enjoyed people watching. The cake portion was ENORMOUS: we took most home, and it took us days to finish!

Clients and family recommended this place as 'near' and really cool ! I asked the guy when we checked in if this was a 'cool' room. His answer 'All our rooms ### are kool! No our room is the 'handicapped room, complete with the crappy fold down 'seat ' and a place for a wheelchair to roll into the shower!...

Couldn't ask for a more unique experience. The drive to SLO from San Diego is great year around. The hotel is a great experience, from choosing the rooms, to checking in everything lives up to the grandeur that is the Madonna Inn. Built with giant rocks integrated into the rooms and Bavarian style woodwork this hotel was made with a...

My grandparents hosted the family dinner here on Christmas Eve. The service was great and the food outstanding. I've been here before for lunch and a friend's wedding reception. It has always been top notch.

I had an amazing stay at the Madonna Inn. I truly loved the rock shower, it was my whole reason for staying there and it didn't disappoint. It was kind of cold when I stayed there so I did not use the pool or go horseback riding. I will definitely be back. There are two restaurants on site, one steak...

Like others have said, this is an "experience." Pink overkill. Gaudy opulence on steroids. Theme rooms that are, indeed, amazing. We last stayed here some 30+ years ago and returned for a fun re-visit. Not much has changed, though the facilities have been nicely updated. The rooms are probably the most fun (read that, unusual) experience. Caveman, etc. The main...

Some rooms are definitely better than others. We got the Sir Walter Raleigh room, which was a bit of a letdown. It was just a slightly outdated hotel room with a few odd items (i.e. a shadowbox filled with pipes) I would have been better if we could pick our room in advance so we'd know if it was worth...
