The decor of this hotel is quite unique. Owned by the Madonna family the hotel is decorated by Mrs. Madonna herself. The rooms in this hotel are carefully decorated to make each one have the feel of a home rather than a hotel room. The Madonna Cafe proudly display their signature Champagne cake. It was a goid cake but a...

I never cared much for reality and the people who designed this is weirder than I am and they get away with it. In fact, they even make a living of it. There is things to see in every room. I really love it.

Wow indeed. It was my partners 50th Birthday so we wanted something unique and memorable to celebrate and the Madonna Inn provided this in quantity. The rooms themselves are remarkable and provide something different over and above other hotels. All the rooms may not be to everyone's taste but there is a room there for everyone, you just need to...

The rooms and restaurants are something to experience. I love hotels with a cool history or historical relevance, and the Madonna Inn was definitely the fun experience we were looking for. We stayed in the Madonna Suite and for the most part loved it. It's a large room with a massive fireplace covering about a quarter of one of the...

I stayed at the Madonna Inn as a child once or twice, and it was memorable for the crazy room decor. I thought it would be a fun adventure with my two children while we were in the area. It did not disappoint, though it is definitely a bit tired, and the reception is off-putting in that they spend a...

Very underwhelmed by the themed rooms. We paid much more than what we felt the stay was worth. The additional resort fee is ridiculous for what you already pay for the room. The food is average, the drinks are expensive, but the house band was great - did a lot of dancing.

Very unique boutique hotel. Nice rooms but quite pricey. Rooms are reasonable. There are no kettles and refrigerator in the room. There are several hotels nearby with better value and you can still book the horse riding activities even if you are not guests of the hotel.

Zooming by on 101, I've passed the Madonna Inn 100's of times over the past 50 years. I've always wanted to stay there. It looks appealing and unique, more like a theme park than a motel. It's pricy for a roadside motel, but we enjoyed this work of art. The Madonna family and their imported European builders were creative architects....

Stayed in the Hide a Way room. Rock walls and a rock shower pared with the signature pink of the Madonna Inn. Service was excellent. From Check in to poolside to the restaurant, service was great. Pool area was nice, with a heated pool and 2 Jacuzzis. Poolside drink and food service was on the ball and quality was good....

This was our third stay. The room was charming and comfortable, the meals at the Copper Cafe were excellent, the staff was friendly and accommodating. We plan to stay again in May and September, 2017.
