Hollywood drama meets rich white trash design - seriously! If pink is your favourite color, you will love this place. We booked a rock shower room - Bridal Falls (yes we are newly weds)! The room was well appointed, the bathroom is nuts, with a waterfall shower, and a bubbling stream for effect (as if you needed it!). With the... More

The Madonna Inn is one of the tackiest places I've ever been. That being said, it's a fun place to stay. As you should know by now, each room has a different theme, so your room is pretty unique. Front desk was friendly (you get some delicious cookies!) and showed us the way to our room. Room (Pick & Shovel)... More

Really, really, Alice in Wonderland. So, take a deep breath, suspend your belief, soak it up, take lots of photos, tell all your friends. But only come here once - that's more than enough. (The cookies are very good! There is way too much pink everywhere!)

This hotel is fabulous. When we first arrived my wife and daughter went to check in my five-year old asked if they had a pink room and the lady at the desk said, "Honey, this is the Madonna Inn. We have many pink rooms." She wasn't kidding. Every room is decorated to the tilt. It is tacky, decadent, beautiful, and... More

My husband surprised me with three nights at the Madonna Inn to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We stayed two nights in the Matterhorn room and one night in the Carin. Our favorite was the Matterhorn. It's walls are blue and it has a very calming effect. Stained glass windows and a balcony which looks out over the ranch in... More

Yes, I know, it seems so silly, and it is quite expensive, and they add on that annoying "resort fee", but the Madonna Inn is somebody's extraordinary dream, and they have worked hard to provide an experience that is out of the ordinary. Everyone is so nice and it is fun to browse through the pictures of the room and... More

If you've ever driven past the Madonna Inn and thought "One day I'll stay in that crazy place" then you definitely should! It is just how you would imagine and more. We stayed in the "regular" rooms (Pioneer for us and Swiss Chalet for my parents) and were amazed by the size. Couches, big, comfortable beds, even a little office... More

I loved this place. The pool alone with magnificent views of the mountains was out of this world! Our room "Showboat" was big enough for our family of 4 (Two singles and one King). A terrific price instead of two separate rooms for our older children. Clean, comfortable and roomy, very nice! Horses in the field, hiking trails around, beautiful... More
