With its Alice in Wonderland meets The Hobbit decor — and more than 100 rooms, each named for its unique fantasy theme — I doubt there’s a more quirky property than the Madonna Inn anywhere in America. We got a kick out of our “Swiss Bell” room, and enjoyed an early morning stroll along the trails in the nearby pastures....

my husband (who never plans) planned a romantic stay for us and after emailing back and forth with the hotel staff booked the ultimate "Madonna Suite"! I was familiar with the themed hotel, and the mixed reviews but my husband was very excited-so I got on board. when we checked in on a Monday afternoon, we were told that our...

When presented with your key there is an overwhelming odd excitement to which room you have been adopted to, as if you had a optimistic feeling about a Saturday lottery ticket. I was given the room named, 'Marguerite', not certain how this connects to blue and white porcelain saucers, with the added matching blue felt like material curtains and carpet,...

I have heard about the Madonna Inn for years so on a whim we drove down for the weekend. The staff was friendly but the place just seem old and tired and very dated. I know it's gaudy and that's part of the charm but it was just plain old. The restaurant was very $$$ $42 for a steak dinner...

This was my husbands third visit to this hotel and my second, the first being on our honeymoon. I LOVE this hotel even if it is a little worn around the edges in places, I dont know of anywhere that rivals this for wackiness and must stay quirkiness. We stayed in the Madonna Inn Suite which is one of the...

This is a neat resort... very unusual. The rooms are all decorated differently. I've stayed in 4 different ones, thus far. They add all the special details to each room. The restaurant, bar and dance area are beautiful, beautiful... with beautiful wood and plush rose carpets. I didn't find the food to be that good except for their cakes... yummy...

Well worth a visit. we stayed as a family of 5 one night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the 2 themed rooms and enjoyed the use of the pool and other amenities. madonna staff were also very helpful with arranging clothes left behind to be forwarded to our next destination by courier. This hotel would have had an excellent...

Hadn't booked the night to stay at the hotel but was told that when your passing through it is a must see. I arrived at the hotel and within 5 minutes I'd booked a room, the buffalo room. I opened the door to the room to be greeted by a huge buffalo head hanging off the wall and other quirky...

What a great place! We only had two nights but we should have stayed longer. Fantastic and enormous room with two massive beds and loads of space to relax. The swimming pool was lovely and our two boys just thought it was one of the best places they have ever stayed in. We ate in the steakhouse and also had...

This place is absolutely rediculous. From the bathrooms to the beds. It's like you got stuck on the Star Trek Enterprise hologram deck. Reserve the Cave man room early! It sells out months in advance!
