This was quite an interesting place. I booked a cave/waterfall room the first night, which was really cool, but a once in a lifetime sort of deal. The entire room was rock including the floor and ceiling. If you book one of these rooms, be sure to bring slippers or sandals. The sink in the bathroom was a very neat...

I saw this hotel on TV and wanted to go ever since, luckily on my recent road trip to the USA i got to stay there. Our room wasn't as OTT as i had hoped for however the bathroom was multicolored with glittery walls. The heated pool and hot tubs were awesome and very clean. The downside for us was...

Assumed we would be getting a "themed" room so we could have a special memory for our family while touring colleges with our daughter. Although the room had an individual name, the main differences between most of the rooms (we saw several) is different wallpaper and room colors. Otherwise, things seemed pretty standard and really not worth the price. I...

We stayed for one night in a themes room. Room was clean and in good condition - the theme was actually well done but a bit bizarre as expected. We were awoken at 7:30 am by the cleaning staff yelling back and forth to each other outside of the rooms. When I complained and mentioned it again at checkout the...

Wanted a place that would work for a visiting relative, a middle aged woman and a 17 year old boy. This was the ticket! We stayed in the Traveler's Suite. It was huge - could have been set up to better utilize the space, but very cool nonetheless. Only complaint is that our room was not cleaned. I think some...

You won't find anything like this. The rooms are all individually designed, ours with a horse theme. A nice shower, big bedroom and a good tv. The swimmingpool and jacuzzi was lovely and warm, eventhough it was winter. There's nothing else interesting around but the motel itself, but for one night it's perfect. A good restaurant, the nicest waitress and...

My husband and I stayed at The Madonna Inn in late November. Our stay was a real mix of a fun room, good food but very poor service. I booked our room online and would call and book next time. When you book online you can not pick your room, only the category you want to be in, didn't like...

This is the coolest place I've ever seen in my life! Like something taken out of a cartoon or a movie. Take your time to visit this amazing hotel, but be prepared for a..... different style. Like nothing I've ever seen before.

Worst breakfast I have ever eaten. My order was simple enough - eggs over medium, hash browns, sausage, biscuit and coffee. The eggs were over cooked, the sausage was cold as were the hash browns and the biscuit was a hockey puck! The coffee was weak and the waitress could not seem to get it into the cup. I would...

Every room is different and our room was no exception. We stayed in 133, Cabin Still. The room has a large curved copper clad wall designed to look like an old still. There are a couple of rock walls and a rock floor. If you stay in this room, be sure to bring your slippers as the floor is uneven....
