I booked at the Madonna room for our 14 wedding anniversary. I would have preferred one of the Rock Rooms as our room was a little plain (we were in the Whispering Hills Rm 187) but the customer service at this place has made me a HUGE fan and I will be back. Everywhere from the front desk to the...

You go to this hotel because it is the Madonna Inn! Over the top themed rooms that make for a fun and fab stay. We stayed in Elegance - which held to it's charm and soft French furnishings. Room was huge and with all the comfy needs. We sat by the pool in the afternoon and enjoyed some of the...

We booked a Rock room and it sure had rocks in it! Room 133 Still Cabin was amazing. Downside was that it was that it had the outside steps to 2nd and 3rd floor right outside and many a heavy footed drunken reveller kept us awake until the early hours before the early risers stomped down. That aside the hotel...

Different themed rooms, in many outlandish colors and motifs, help set the mood. The rooms with a rock waterfall shower reserve well in advance. Our meal in the dining room was fantastic as well. Good show all around.

Staying at the Madonna Inn is like visiting a fantasy world. I've stayed there many times and enjoyed every minute. Each of the 100+ rooms are of a different theme and beautifully decorated. The Love Nest, a pink delight with a tower, is my favorite room. The food, the pool, the view, the service incredible, and the birthday cake perfect....

I first stayed here in about 1987 - and just returned with my kids for a family trip. It was a great place to celebrate my daughter's 13th birthday. The kids loved every aspect of the place - the pool, chandeliers, crazy bathrooms and showers, and the very large pieces of pink cake. I gotta say - I loved the...
