Reviewed 5 June 2016

My husband and I went on a road trip from Phoenix, AZ up through California, Oregon, and Washington over the last two weeks. My formula for finding a hotel in the city/town we were looking at stopping in was first price point, then good reviews. We stayed at many hotels, some great, some rather questionable. This was obviously our favorite hotel! We stayed in Rock Bottom (cave-like with waterfall shower). First of all, the waterfall shower is totally worth the extra money, it's super cool! Loved the property, they have done a really good job keeping up the place! Everyone was nice, free cookies upon check-in, use of robes in room, free parking, free WiFi, super comfortable bed and pillows, great deal on breakfast (didn't eat it due to being vegan, not sure if it's good), and a good amount of toiletries available in-room. We didn't eat at the restaurant, but we went to the bar next to it and it was okay. Decent pricing, and the Madonna Inn Chardonnay is actually good! Although, we probably wouldn't go back to it again as we didn't enjoy our bartender or service. Be sure to visit the bathrooms downstairs and the little gift shop too! We will be back to try a different room next time, I like that their website provides good photos and descriptions of each room!

Sidenote: There is a super cute farm cat roaming around and we fell in love with it!

We were highly recommended to go visit the Madonna Inn from a friend. I'm so glad we were able to visit and see what's it all about. We only had time for breakfast in their copper room. The Eggs Benedict was awesome, with 1" thick Canadian bacon Our waiter Gabe, rocked and was a pleasure to talk to. The decor was out of this world. Lot's of pink! And the cakes were beautifully hand crafted and so delicious. We were so full from the breakfast but we couldn't resist to take a slice of banana cake and carrot cake home. YUMMY! The best cake I've tasted in a long time. Next time we will take time to stay in one of their many themed rooms. The landscaping was awesome as well. Service staff and the gift shops are amazing. They have tennis courts and swimming pools that are in great condition. I didn't get to see the many hot tubs they have. Everyone should visit the Madonna Inn once.

Straight out of the old days of motor Inn's. The rooms are uniquely designed and decorated to match themes, like Caveman, Western, Desert..... The Bar adn Dinning hall is a throwback to supper clubs and dance halls. Great place to stop and unwind when traveling the Pacific Coast Highway.

Had a nice lunch at the Cooper Cafe today. Salads and a Madonna Fritatta (which is a very funny name). All were good, a bit pricy, but you are paying for the chic of the place. Very nice service. The Fritatta came with a biscuit which was heaven. The flowers around the grounds are all in bloom and very pretty.
