This Inn is so well taken care of with little touches you will rarely see in modern hotels. The staff was friendly, the food was great and the Pink Champagne Cake is a must. If you are a vanilla kind of person who is gonna whine cuz you don't have a mini fridge or microwave, then this place isn't for you. If you appreciate a unique, vintage vibe, then have fun. Each room is different and the wood carvings and stain glass through out the property is fun to look at. The gardens are well maintained and everything was in full bloom this summer. The beds were also very comfortable. I would highly recommend
Over the top decor , excellent service at the steak house

Thoroughly enjoyed our Jungle Rocks room with the waterfall shower. Some of the items in the rooms and common areas could be modernized a bit, but what a fun experience.
Monte Cristo Sandwich was excellent.
Mmm de mis preferidas siempre el combo 2 y nunca le fallo, lastima las casas de espera tanto en drive true como dentro del restaurante. Clarin que regreso... más bien si voy seguido, hasta una malteada de chocolate de postre.
Really nice stay with family. Super interesting place, from each room to the entire place.. A few things were just less than %100 but all in all a great time.
Excellent service ! Food was ok
Madonna Inn is a special place, with lots of history and lots of character. The decor is better reviewed by somebody. Suffice to say, it's impressive. I would definitely suggest trying out the main "Steak House" restaurant in the hotel. Our family went to the Copper Cafe for a weekday lunch, which was unfortunately pretty disappointing in the food and the atmosphere department. I cannot recommend it, except as "admission" to see the rest of the hotel. In that regard, I suppose it was OK.
Very kind front desk staff. We stayed at the daisy Mae room which was basically entirely made out of rock. Very cool room. One minor issue is that the door was very thin so the hallway was quite loud but the rooms actual walls were made out of rock so not much noise from those hahahah. Food is pricey but that makes sense given the location right next to the highway.
The food was excellent. The room was beautiful. We had a great stay.
Best cakes ever! Great kitchy vibe.
This place is beautiful & fun! We ate breakfast there & it was delicious, even the jam was homemade fresh.
Wonderful dinner, great service and very fair prices for all you get.
Sooo fancy! Great tourist attraction
I can't speak of the dinner menu but I would pass on it if you planned on having breakfast. The high prices for below average food isn't worth it. The cakes on the other hand are worth stopping by for.
Cowboy-fairy Mashup of grand proportions. Lovely venue with several great restaurants, a bar, and of course themed rooms (Cave man, cowboy, Luau, many others). Kitschy gift shop, amazing bakery items - but come early, they sell out.
OMG! Loved this place!!! So cute!
I'll tell you something that travel agents do not want you to know. When booking hotels use ??????????.??? They have the best deals on rooms! Way better than using orbitz, priceline, agoda. That is for sure!!! Amazing beautiful area. Unbelievable area, views, restaurant. Reasonably priced, good service, careful, considerate & friendly.
The Madonna Inn is eccentric luxury at it's finest. The hotel features a catalog of rooms (110) all with different themes and features. From a Caveman dwelling to French provincial and Mountain Cabin to Angelic tree house this place has it covered. They offer bike riding, horse back riding, hiking or swimming, take your pick. When you get hungry there are two restaurants to choose from, Alex Madonna's steakhouse or the delicious Copper Cafe. Portions are very generous with a little something for all appetites. Book your stay in advance for the best selection of rooms. Make reservations for dinner as they fill tables quickly after 7 pm. When in San Luis Obispo... The Madonna Inn is a must for your overnight to week long stay!
Stop whatever you are doing and just go here. If you're reading this it's probably because you just passed by the Madonna inn and you're in San Luis Obispo and you can't find anywhere else to eat. The reason is there is nowhere else to eat and honestly this place is awesome. People are so nice and the food is so home style satisfying and the decorations are just great. Do yourself a favor go park your car at the supercharger if you have a Tesla walk into the restaurant and just go eat you'll love it.
Great. Be warned though: they do have stamps if you want to mail a letter, just not post stamps. Bring your own if you want those. 10/10 in everything else though. Great fun atmosphere and a stunning garden.
Rather interesting looking place. Model and restaurant. Worth the look if you passing by not sure i would go there on purpose.
It was good. Went to tesla take over, stayed night there, ate at the overpriced restaurant and had dinner at overpriced cafe. Rooms were fun, very cool design. Not much for views. Why only 2 stars? All that for people just walking by and peeking into rooms, non stop.. disgusting. Didn't feel comfortable with two kids. Wanted to talk to one of them but they quickly disappear. Management needs better covers for windows, maybe full tint, because current curtains make room too dark. Also lights, dimming lights but non of the bulbs were designed for that so they all flicker like crazy. Very uncomfortable.

A great place to visit ! stop in and if possible stay there there is much to do.
If it haven't been here you got to stop by. This is a quaint and decadent piece of California's history. The restaurant is above average the hotel grounds are beautiful the ballroom is a tea party on mushrooms
I was driving to SLO to visit family from San Diego. Booked a room at Madonna for just under $400/night after taxes. Arrived at 1 pm and was told room would be ready by 4. Wasn't offered a place to store my luggage. Its now 5 and the room isnt ready. My belonging have been baking in my car for 4 hours. Not to mention nobody has called me to update me on my room. I had to call twice after 4pm to get a update. When I called to voice my frustration, I was offered $30 off. So for $360/night you can't have the room ready on time and your compensation is a slap in the face quite frankly. Sure the rooms and qwerky and fun but the beds arent that great nor are the bathrooms. Nothing about this hotel aside from its gimmicky nature warrants that price. If thats what you're looking for go right ahead otherwise your money will be better spent somewhere else. I had dinner reservations there and if thats the customer service you get for $360/night ill take my money somewhere else. If youre going to spend almost $400/night for a hotel near SLO go elsewhere. For that rate you can go to Sea Venture in Pismo and get a balcony with your own hot tub and a staff that will bend over backwards for you. Or go to Hotel San Luis Obispo which is very classy and caters to your experience. Or Vespara in Pismo which will do the same. The staff member I spoke with and the manager at Madonna couldn't care less about your experience. They're just there to turn numbers. Too high a price to pay for such a poor experience. Will never recommend this place to anyone for anything.
The pictures on the site do this place no justice. Every time I look at the website I think it looks almost a little rundown but I've been there twice this year for mother's Day and a birthday party. And I was impressed by both rooms that we got. There was a lot of room and experience was nice at the pool always a fun time with my friends and family
I have been coming here for 20 years when I come to pismo I have to stop in
Wow this place is so unique. Ate at the cafe and the pastrami sandwich and the tri tip dip was da bomb! Also took some pink champagne cake home. Wasn’t sure what to expect but the cake was really light, not too sweet. It was perfect. Can’t wait to go back at stay there.
1st time here for my boyfriend and I. The food was great. The staff was incredible. We loved our server Sharon J. She took great care of us. It was a spur of the moment visit so next time we will plan to stay at the hotel as well.
Go to the hotel to use the restrooms at this location and you will be surprised at what you see.
Super cute!! Stopped for a drink and some cake! Yummm!
Based on the cakes we had. Black Forest and lemon cake . Stopped by to check out desserts. Noticed unique layout of the dining. I liked it. Anyway, the portions were enough for 2 hungry people. The chocolate cake was okay and lacked the bling of flavors, but well intentioned. The kids liked the lemon cake. They ate it all, darn those kids. We still had a huge chocolate cake left over. Should have had the champagne cake. As always post wherever your palate takes you. Sorry, no pics of the cakes.
We had a private meeting it was secluded the staff were top notched and the food was perfect.

This here is one weird place probably need to see it to appreciate. I stayed rite here since the doors were big enough to get my wife through em. We also found this here Indian artifact in the parking lot pretty sweet
This is the most exquisite place with the most delicious pastries and cakes. Good thing I don't live nearby or my weight would be an issue... seriously. The attendants are so courteous and charming!
Very fun place. It's unique and entertaining.
First time visiting this place and all I can say it's wonderful. The creative mind that went into each room being different and having its own story is amazing and very well done. The pool and gym are good nothing too fancy but good they do have 2 jacuzzi so that's great. The location where this is at is beautiful surrounded by nature and all. Okay let's talk food they do have a restaurant of their own the food is good but unfortunately the pricing is a bit too high. We paid over $200 worth of food for 4 people which again it depends on the person and if this is no problem then you should be good. Is it worth it? Yes definitely worth it
Fun to visit
Great dinner. Had the Ruben. I am particular. Was up to my standards. The various cakes were awesome. Great layout. Friendly staff. Others had the shrimp cocktail and fruit plate... awesome combo. Gift shop was fun. Suggest you stop by and enjoy.
The room was fun. The grounds are beautiful. The steakhouse was so good!
Neat place with lots of history. A must see when in San Luis Obispo!

Best stake in SLO county
Good food, good atmosphere.
So cute. Food was ok
Awesome food and place to visit
The big draw here is the color pink... and the unique bathroom.
Very unique and fun but plan to pay the price
Stayed here for a 2-night stay during our weekend trip to SLO. ABSOLUTELY LOVED this place. Check-in was easy, efficient, and the front desk staff who helped us out was very informative and professional. We stayed at the Desert Sands-themed room and we had an abundance of space and everything we might’ve needed to make our stay comfortable and convenient. Both the bedroom and bathroom was well-decorated and moderately-sized too. The room was immaculate and housekeeping was on point. The only con that I would mention is that the walls are a little thin BUT considering the historic state of the property and the effort to upkeep the overall gimmick and theme - this is understandable. The property Madonna Inn sits on is beautiful and spacious. I used the Fitness Center and the Pool both days and these amenities are in great condition! The fitness center had a moderate amount of equipment to keep you active and the pool (large size too!) is warmed and conveniently has 2 spa hot tubs, and an easy-access pool bar nearby. There’s a little secret garden outside for a nice stroll and also a nature path leading up to the pool area. We had breakfast at the bar top area inside the restaurant (very uniquely-themed decor at the restaurant - worth a picture for sure!) both days and the bartenders/staff here are sooo nice and friendly - and the food/coffee delicious.???? Overall, this place is a gem and will look forward to staying here in the future again! Thank you guys for your great customer service and making our trip/stay fantastic.????
A well preserved property that takes you to the past, a must visit landmark
Historical and iconic, there is non other like it...a must see! The food is pretty good too.
Tourist trap employees are super rude

Enjoyed our 31st anniversary here... Good times and food!
we stayed here for 5 days from Texas, and let me tell you... IT WAS AMAZIIINNGGGG!!!!! Definitely will come back.. the rooms were very very clean, Maricela and her crew were the best. Helped us anytime we needed their help and with a huge smile on their faces ;) the Food was AMAZIINNGG! And honestly I'm just speechless. It was a great experience. Wish I could stay longer
This place is iconic. If you are dreaming of a whimsical getaway, the Madonna Inn is pure magic. Our room (Cloud Nine) was beautiful, feminine, luxurious, vintage, and unique. The bidet was an unexpected five star feature. The grounds are gorgeous, the property immaculate and unique, the food delicious, the drinks on-point, and the pool perfect.. but the staff are beyond words. We were so well taken care of by each person we encountered, we felt like we were leaving home, when we checked out. Get your new favorite cocktail from Luis, Dylan, or Daniel, who will feel like old friends, have an unforgettable dinner in Mindy's section in the steakhouse-- absolutely get the champagne cake for dessert, and go for a trail ride to enjoy the happy, well cared for horses, best views, and opportunity to spend an hour with McKenna and Katie. Every single aspect of our stay exceeded our expectations (which were years-long-dream-level). Give yourself enough time to enjoy every aspect that the Madonna Inn has to offer. This place is beyond what you imagine.
Love this places! Dinner was excellent.
(Translated by Google) Excellent service clean bedrooms spectacular views (Original) Excelente servicio recamaras limpias vistas espectaculares
WOW This place is so COOL@@ I only stop by but I wish I can stay in this place (probably in the future) I only have the experience at the main lobby. Their restrooms downstairs are so cool????????????
Used the Tesla chargers. Lots of them available
Julia Hogan M.
Super pretty place with a great atmosphere.
If there is ONE place to stop by then n your drive along HWY 101 this is it! Ckeck out the architecture, interior design, restaurants and yes even the bathrooms are something unique!!!
We go there every year for our anniversary . love their pies.

Circus Vargas is in town in SLO until July 5th. My 6 yr old grand daughter had a blast. Great show about 2 hours long with one 15 minute intermission.
Extremely unique architecture and design! Classic American diner fare. Everything will be pink.
Everyone should experience the Madonna Inn in their lifetime. It is one of the most unique hotels that I have ever stayed at. The food is also amazing. I can't wait to return.
Love this place looking forward to coming back! Great staff and very helpful thank you so much ? ???? food was off the chart good!
Bsautiful place to plan a wedding, proposal or a girls weekend. Beautiful place to just visit.
Mike the coffee shop manager was extremely rude and dismissive. We were treated badly by every single person in the restaurant. I went there to celebrate my birthday and I was extremely disappointed. The cake was also a disappointment. I will never return!

Very nice experience here and the pink champagne cake is the best.A++
This is an iconic stop along the 101. I remember stopping by in the 70s and seeing the Inn for my first time. It's a place full of imagination and little hidden surprises. Like the surprise in the men's bathroom. I'm not talking about the urinal waterfall, I'm talking about the foreign vacationers taking pictures while I am trying to pee. I think some tourist got more in their pictures than just a waterfall. The rooms (although I have never stayed) are themed to make your stay memorable. It's definitely worth a stop by if nothing else just to say you saw it. At the entrance is a bank of Tesla charging stations if you're traveling.
Amazing beautiful area. Unbelievable area, views, restaurant. Reasonably priced, good service, careful, considerate & friendly.
Busy. Ok food
Bought a champaign cake, turkey sandwiches and patti melt to go. Good food. Very nice staff. Short wait. Weird decor.
It's a fun place with heated pools, bar, gym, bakery, steakhouse, spa, and some other things. The overall quality of everything is great but not "international hotel chain level." If you're young or young at heart, this hotel is for you.
Beautiful and food was amazing.
Decor is over the top! Cute
Bill “Thefinishinglab” S.
What an amazing experience!! If you've never been here you have to stay and you HAVE to go experience the restaurant! Alli our waitress was so amazing and even though there was a little hiccup with our order it was made right very quickly. We stayed in the Old Wolrd Suite, WOW is all I can say! The stay has been unfortunately short, only one night but we'll be back for more definitely!
Saeid M M.
Nice place, there are many things to do and spend time with. Clean and shiny... Very nice and kind Crew... A few minutes far from ocean, but it is worth to stay there...
Was ok. Waffle under cooked and coffee strong
Exceeded all expectations.
To much, to much freeken awesome you want old beautiful,got to. See no ,go now
Stopped in to get a couple of slices of cake. Pretty good, crowded, good service.
Ugly looking monstrosity.
Madonna Inn is a beautiful, iconic place that employs friendly and talented people. It is always a great experience!
Even if you stay somewhere else in town, visiting the Madonna Inn is worth it. There's nowhere else like it
Food and Service was amazing. Price on point too. History lives on !!!
Beautiful setting. Great service. Yummy dinner and scrumptious dessert.
The cakes are amazing!
Love this place. So fun and charming. A Must experience
The room's decor is cool, no complaints here and that's probably why you are looking at this place. But if you are like me and need a comfortable bed, maybe stay elsewhere. The mattress has probably not been changed since the time the place was built. A screechy old spring mattress. I slept better at a Travelodge as well as in a tent during this trip, no exaggeration. Also, I recommend that you bring your own shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. They have the first three but the quality is what you'd expect from a 3 star hotel.
It’s an interesting and quirky place to stay for one night. Each room has a unique theme and the rooms are clean and nice. The exterior is also good for pictures, and there are multicolored lights that light up the entire resort once it turns dark. However, the most that it offers is a pool and a bar and a few restaurants that all serve the same menu. For a $30 resort fee, you get to enjoy an “infinity pool” (which just has lowered walls and you can’t see the view from the pool), a tiny waterfall, a tiny patch of grass, and a mini garden with a little rectangle with water that they call a pond.
If the walls could talk. I would listen for Days. Super cool retro place.
A bit crazy and the rooms weren't in perfect shape, but it was a fun, out of the ordinary stay. Staff was amazing and the food was great.
Charged the Tesla!
Really great breakfast
Food was bland and overpriced. Flavorless and prepared poorly. Unimpressive for even a local diner. Let alone this “historical spot”. The servers were oddly not friendly. They seemed annoyed with us for wanting to order anything.
They have a good fast Tesla Supercharger, but no restrooms nearby.
Great Food, beautiful atmosphere, had a great server.
Awesome food, awesome service! Fascinating ambiance! (Check out the mens restroom, downstairs)! Wine cellar!
Such a unique experience. An absolute must when in SLO
Beautiful and very unique-like staying in a museum with something new to wow around each turn!
Best trained staff, for the best customer service. Excellent food even more excellent desserts.
Expensive but good. A piece of cake is $10 but can feed a horse.
My wife and I ate breakfast here in the cafe and it was not only beautiful but the service was impeccable. The french toast was wonderful.
Great service. Friendly waiters. Great food options and drinks. Reasonable price for the size of your plates
I read other reviews beforehand that stated you go for the experience and not the necessarily the service, and I can attest that that is true. The rooms are so fun as is the atmosphere, and the pool is incredible! We also forgot our wine cork and they provided us with another free of charge, and were friendly in their service that night. Unfortunately I ran into a bit of an issue when I forgot an item in the room, and when I called to inquire about it, the service was severely lacking. The employee I spoke with stated that he did not see my item in their list of items in lost and found, and provided me no other avenues in order to find my item such as actually physically looking for the item himself or any other course of action I could take. He simply went silent on the line and then insinuated I hadn’t actually left the item in the room. I was also discouraged from speaking to a manager when I asked to, and was told “a manager would tell me the same thing.” I had to call back to ask if he would simply look for the item himself in the lost and found (which is in a room right next to the front desk) and, surprise, when he did it was found! No apology was offered. Also, if you are vegan plan on ordering food elsewhere because there are no vegan options at all at the restaurant. Overall I would definitely recommend staying here because it’s a fun, one of a kind experience, but don’t leave anything behind in your room! Triple check!
I've always wanted to visit the madonna inn I got information at the front desk and I would definitely want to stay a couple of nights thank you front desk, sorry I forgot your name for taking the time to go over the information. ????????????????
Magical place! Stayed in The Highway Room incredible with huge rock fireplace and shower!! Restaurants are all incredible with excellent staffing and food is perfect. The Champagne Cake is a Must! Light and not too sweet.
Good food and service..lot's of cool things
Stopped here for steak and eggs. Hash browns were so overcooked they were mush in the middle. Eggs cooked over medium, steak cooked med rare, and pico de Gallo was good. Pricey, feels like this cafe is just resting on the laurels of the big pink hotel visible from the freeway that draws you in. Typical old school spot that's been there forever, probably was amazing in it's hey day, but now it's just existing and scraping by.
About as unique as it gets.
This is one interesting restaurant/hotel. What can I say. Whimsical?, different?. Love it anyway. Though I have never stayed at the hotel, I always stop here when visiting the area, for lunch, dinner or dessert. The food always satisfies. The Bakery is pretty good. For the most part the service is good, though last summer when my wife and I ate there for dinner it was so dark that us that the people around us were using their phones to see the menu. It didn't help that the waitress was pretty rude. She was annoyed when we had to send my wife's salad black because a bug had decided to take a walk through her salad. That rubbed her the wrong way. I noticed the people around us were getting bread service as well as a deli plate with salami, cheese amd other assorted items. I asked a manager if everyone got this. He said I see you did not receive that or bread so he personally went and got it for us. Had this been my first time there, it would have been my last, good food and all. At least pretend to like where you work and don't treat your customers like they are in the way, especially when the bill for two is $110.00. For that I would normally tip 25%, but we will just say hers was more like 10%.
Best stop on the West Coast. !!!
Quirky, friendly, and good food. We try to stop here for a meal when we can while traveling between San Jose and LA.
Great place to share an intimate dinner!
We reserved for the trail rides on Saturday morning and it was great. The trail ride workers were wonderful and super nice. The ride was awesome and you have a great view when on top of the hills. I'd recommend it! The Madonna cake was delicious and just looking through their restaurant and shopping at their gift store was great! We'll hopefully eat at the Cooper Cafe on our next visit.
5 star service, unique accommodations
Always a great experience at Madonna Inn. Alli was our waitress and she truly made the experience for us!!! We will continue to go back.

We had a wonderful birthday experience

Has beautiful landscaping with a secret garden good for special events like weddings or brunches.Inside building has lots of pink and woodwork carvings definitely has an older feel but cool to look at but not much to do with younger children.
Fast and friendly service at the bakery
Fun place to visit, and easily seen from highway 101. Enjoyed a nice meal in the Cafe, and there's also a fancier restaurant attached, as well as the Inn.
Had a wonderful time cebratig my grand daughter's birthday.
Great service. Huge belgium waffle and almond croissant.
Fun experience! Definitely worth a stop
Great food, amazing cakes
Great food fast service clean restaurant spent 100$ for 3 people with milkshakes and chocolate pie!! Always a Slo favorite!!!
Amazing & Breath taking!!
For over 35 years we rarely make a trip down Hwy 101 without stopping at the Madonna Inn. We've eaten many meals here both casual in the coffee shop and large parties in the upscale restaurant, all memorable. On 3 occasions we've stayed in their unique and varied theme rooms which are a treat. And of course the bathrooms downstairs from the bar are an experience you won't forget soon. Even more reason to plan a stop there since they have a fair size Tesla Supercharger station near the entrance.
The Madonna inn itself was very nice however there is a giant homeless tent encampment right across the street. Not what you expect paying good money for a nice stay and hotel.
If you don't know I don't what to say except you're missing out. Themed rooms, pool, two hot tubs, and as a 6'8" dude I sincerely appreciated the super high shower heads.
I love to stop by get ear my favorite cake black forest . You have to order in advance because they will not let you buy one whole cake if you dont order and pay before to go and pick it up. Trust me they are mean and dont care .
The Madonna Inn is a unique and compelling piece of roadside Americana that I love to visit every time I pass near San Luis Obispo. The property was the vision of Alex and Phyllis Madonna, and the staff do an amazing job of preserving that vision. With that said, almost nothing has changed in the past 20 years I’ve been stopping by, and with the exception of the Tesla Superchargers if you’re seeking more modern amenities you’re in the wrong place! Enjoy it on the level it asks and you’ll have a great time.
Birthday breakfast for my sister per her request. Make reservations to guarantee time your time since it's always busy. Alex Madonna built and wife decorated. Very unique with hand carved interior. There's also a steakhouse with a bar, music and dance floor. Hotel rooms are themed, no two alike. Wine cellar has hosted proms, receptions and many other celebrations. Wine cellar has gift shop. Another very unique reception area over the drive through with hotel check in. Check out all the restrooms. Lower level behind coffee shop has a small toilet for little girls. Men's restroom has copper trough for urinal. Wine cellar men's room has giant clam shell for urinal. Very old world charm. Upstairs gift shops are separate men's and women's. Event center and wine tours can be arranged through hotel services. Definitely book in advance for rooms of your choice. One of a kind hotel and restaurants.
Best hotel in California! Amazing rooms, love the pool and hot tub so much, the pink everywhere! A must visit
The Madonna Inn is one to remember, this place is for you to enjoy, while it has restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner including a cafe/bakery. Vineyards are close by such as Laetitia vineyard. Also every room in this hotel it's different yes all of them you never know what room you are getting, definitely a experience to try again and again
It's got some nick nacks.
This place is cool me and my son loved this place
A little pricey for what it is, but perfectly cheesy. I'm convinced murder mysteries take place here for real. It's like the other end of Vegas. That hotel/casino/bar that's supposed to close down, but somehow stays open forever. It's like The Holiday Inn on acid.
Best San Luis Obispo Ca Aesthetic. You will love their food and their fun and beautiful decorations.
Nice waitress very attentive they just cook there eggs too much down light burnt eggs even though I said soft soft scrambled
comfortable and nice place!
Benjamin “Bk” K.
Really cool property with white fences and horses. Very nice horses that will come right up to the fence to greet you
Every room is different! It is wonderful not to be at a plain jane hotel. These room are fun!!! Every we go we get a different room.
Great historic place with unique rooms throughout the hotel. Classic in SLO.
Slightly garish, but worth a visit. Sweet potato fries excellent!
Driving by, had to stop in for a bloody mary.. never disappointed
We love it... we live 15 mins drive away so enjoy the cafe there regularly. The Madonna cakes are amazing!!
High prices,large rooms,bed OK.. ...no coffee in room no hair dryer....toilet runs all night....
Food was good. Birthday celebration was quietly announced by staff. Very good champagne cake. Mens bathroom downstairs is well worth the visit.
Loved every moment. Was my 70th Birthday but I felt 40 again. Great time, great atmosphere, great staff. We'll be back!
Amazing! So happy with my stay! Got this hotel for a wonderful price at ??????????.??? I love this resort and I'm so grateful I stayed here for much less than what I generally spend. The most amazing whimsical hotel we've ever stayed in!! We loved it so much!! Beautiful inside and out. There's 110 rooms and every single one is different. The food is delicious and the cakes are the best I've ever tasted! Everyone at the hotel is super friendly and so wonderful to all guests. I can’t wait to come back!! Truly a place to experience!! ????
Restaurant service and food was bad...first time there and last... better burgers down the street
Good food. Awesome
Absolutely amazing experience! Will definitely be back!
Basically they overcharge you here I ordered the prime rib sandwich well done when it came it was super rare and rest of meal was missing no one came by to check and they still charged me 32 for that bloody meat on bread I will never come back
The food is good, the price maybe a little higher but it worth the view.
Was our first time and my kids took my mom and I for Mother's day and what a nice surprise.
Service on Mother’s Day was horrible! Manager even ignored us when we walked in and just stayed on his phone at the counter. I had to ask him to help us. The hostesses did not know where to seat people. After seated took 20 minutes to take our order, she also never brought us our drinks so we just had to cancel them.
The room was excellent, clean, bright and shinny. We stayed in the hide away, watch the Rock sticking out of the wall if you close the blinds behind the couch, ouch!!! Dinnjng room was amazing, lobster ???? was cooked perfectly, filet was, sizable, and tender. We had breakfast aswell and picked up a pie, Boysenberry!!
A magical place with incredibly lovely themed rooms, a beautiful pink restaurant, an amazing bakery and restaurant on premises, a great pool, and even more amenities and attractions than we could do in our two nights there. It is a little bit expensive, but I would entirely recommend saving your pennies so you can make a trip up here for a little getaway to experience the beauty of SLO and the surrounding mountains. You can ride horses with the hotel's nearby stable, which we wanted to do but chose not to because it was $75/person to go, as much as we wanted to. 100% recommend trying the pink champagne cake. It was like an angel food layer cake with delicious cream filling and pink white chocolate covering the outside. The apple Danish was also delicious. We stayed in the Starlite room and we really enjoyed the view and the private balcony. Everyone should go at least once in their lives. The staff was helpful and friendly. We did notice they added a surcharge if you book your room through a secondary travel site like Expedia, so make sure to do your research and price comparisons before you go so you know what to plan for. Would definitely go again!
Love this place. The staff are pleasant and effective. The food is very good. I always leave here with a smile
Excellent service and surf&turf Beautiful place
Their cakes are to die for.
Room, pool , dinner at their restaurant was nice and relaxing ????
The attention to detail in the rooms is amazing. Enjoyed a stroll around the establishment on pink bikes and later had a lovely steak dinner. Definitely would recommend. YEEHAW!
Great place foe a quirky meal. Old fashion ted decor. $30 per plate or more for meals. Most steaks are $50 +. Burgers and sandwhiches around $16. I had a burger and it was very good.
Cool place to check out. I didn't stay there but had cake! Which is amazing. The history and the beautiful wood carving all around was just amazing. Stop in next time you're in the area.
Food was very good. Atmosphere and interior decoration was great. Love the place. Also at entrance there is statue of Madonna on horseback. Kids enjoyed the place. Also there is Tesla charging station for Tesla car owners.
I was celebrating my birthday and my 26 years of marriage. Horrible service, food was cold my food stay sitting on the window I can see it from where I was sitting. I ask for fresh fruit for my pancakes. Never got any. She didn't ask us for dessert. Horrible
Terri, the gal at the gift shop went out of her way to show me goblets that had not even been out on the floor yet, and gift-wrapped my goblets for me, with a pink bow! Iconic! Thank you!
Great food and service ????
Woah! Can't wait to come back again! Booked this resort for a terrific price at ??????????.??? I love this hotel and I'm so grateful I stayed here for much less than what I normally spend. Beautiful place to stay. There's so many different things to do if you choose. Can't wait to return.
Had a great weekend there. Very clean will be back.
My husband and I are local residents but enjoyed a day riding horses and spending time at the pool and spa. Great experience!
Just quirky enough to be fun

My husband and I were married in the Garden Room and we are still together after 45 yrs. It's a magical place!
A bit (?) garish, but see it once.
Fabulous place...gave it four as I only ate lunch...very likely to be a five if I ever get a chance to stay there!

Pink cake is the best here!!! Such a cool place to visit and stay if u never have.
Beautiful! Copper Cafe and Steak House Check out restrooms
Great place to getaway. They have dining, spa, horse riding and pool. The only thing I had an issue with was the smell of the room. Over all I loved it & will return( in a different room of course).
Over priced and average food. You are paying for the experience the Madonna Inn and it's history.
it was amazing I went to their diner and the food was Soo delicious not a fan about the price though but other wise this is a go to hotel
Showed up our of the blue, told the restaurant we just got engaged. The got us a awesome table right away and even brought us balloons.
First visit. Loved our stay.
Very nice, beautiful scenery and good food
Fun spot great food
This is the best cake ever. Pink Champaign!
Food was way to greasy and bread was still doughy
Just the right amount of cheese! A true SLO classic!
Our room was enchanting the shower was the best part. Would love to stay in every room.
A Gem in SLO #DoACarl
My husband and I have spent many romantic weekends here and we have never been disappointed it’s a very special place for couples
It was so beautiful
It was always a dream of mine as a little girl ...and then a very special man made it happen. It was everything I'd dreamed of and more! I couldn"t have asked for more! The bed was like sleeping on a cloud and the room was just so mmmm PERFECT! I didnt want it to end.."A little heaven on earth" seriouy
A little run down.
Best cake ever
The cake is amazing
Beautiful place to stay. There's so many different things to do if you choose. Can't wait to return.
The most amazing night, amazing dinner I have ever had. Staff is amazing ascwell
Nostalgic and beautiful. Oh, the good old days
Great place to get rid of your money for lodging and a great meal. Pretty cool place, only one like it in America.
Beautiful hotel !! Not sure what took me so long to found this place. This hotel has i guess 110 rooms and all rooms are different. They have nice staff, nice views, pool jacuzzi, bar, restaurant, cafe, lawn tennis, shops....
Hates me to ding them, but went to the coper cafe, service was bad, food was cold, and had to constantly ask for things. Overall should rate a 2 but what hot food I did get wasn't bad.
This place is going down hill and over price
Pros: The pool area is pretty nice if it's not too.crowded. The uniqueness of the buildings and rooms. Cons: The rooms are not well maintained. The mattresses and bedding are very cheap and uncomfortable. The room price is high plus they add a significant "resort fee" per room per night.
Such a beautiful place. I love it.
It's not that great.
If your family and friends enjoy disneyland they'll certainly enjoy this hotel and restaurant that's over 70 years old. It's worth the stop if you want to stay the night or eat. madonna inn isn't your average walk in the park hotel and restaurant. Great food, great service and very creativity designed place. Stop in and take photos and walk the grounds after or before you've eaten. You'll be glad you did.
Fantastic Experience and Food as Always. Get the dessert and got into the gift shops/ boutique ????
Howard Du B.
Very special place.
Worth a stop and visit! Interesting place just to walk around and look at.
The Service was Great ! The food was Great ! The atmosphere was Great ! It was was "72nd. birthday & my son took me there for my birthday dinner. I highly recommend Madonna Inn !
Loved it! Well worth the stop!
First time here, breakfast and service was very good
Our family lives the ambient atmosphere and great food!

???? Love ??
Full of whimsey! My wife and I stayed for two nights after postponing for a year due to the pandemic. We spent time at the pool bar, had some spa treatments, had breakfast at the Copper Cafe, and had dinner at the Steak House. Hype and price aside, this is still a 3-star hotel and lacked some amenities, such as a refrigerator in the room. It could also use a refresh on the HVAC and TVs for the room. Thanks to the wonderful experience we had at the spa, I bumped this up to 4 stars. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, despite some loud neighbors that kept us awake on our second night. SLO is about 5-minutes away. If you're not feeling the food or drinks at the on-site restaurants. You're still in a prime location to check out the town and countryside full of wineries.
Very unique place.
(Translated by Google) Beautiful place Very comfortable Spa with excellent pool. But the waiters)))) (Original) Precioso lugar Muy comodo Spa con alberca exelente . Pero los meseros ))))
All the things open to have fun
Lovely meal. Great food. Always a relaxing time.
The filet mignon is delicious. I will be coming back for more on our next visit to SLO.
Awesome.... Must visit to at least see the bathrooms, though idk in covid.
Came here for lunch. Amazing food, especially dessert. Worth a look if only for the decor!

I've been driving by for 2 decades, me and the Mrs. Stopped by for our anniversary, amazing property.
Charming inn with beautiful flower garden and fountain! Stopped by just for super charging. But will go back for staying there later.
The Madonna Inn had been on my bucket list for a while. I decided to go for my 40th since I couldn't travel abroad like I wanted to. I had seen the pictures and was told it was so beautiful and had such a great vibe, I was expecting to feel so delighted. We arrived late, maybe 830pm when we had checked in dropped off our bags and looked around our amazing room. It was just like the photos. I was so excited about being there (I took a photo of soap!) but I wanted to sit down and have a piece of cake on my birthday so we went to the restaurant (which we were told by the very disinterested staff at check-in) was still open! When we got to the restaurant we were just taking in the gorgeous sights, it really is a beautiful place. He (my other half and rock in this debacle of a trip) asked for a table and we were asked by a host if we were ordering a meal and we said no we wanted dessert and drinks so the host told us "we'd be better served in the cafe". I was very disappointed that I was being sent away from the restaurant but I thought that meant I could have some lovely cake so I went along. At the cafe, we were seated at the bar (not at a table which I asked for) and then we were told they were low on desserts. There was ice cream available. I was heartbroken. I couldn't sit in the cute restaurant with the lovely red seats and chandeliers for my 40th and eat cake like I thought. I thought maybe I was being too sensitive but I casually asked him how he was liking it and his reaction was what I was thinking. We left the next morning and I will never return to this unwelcoming place. (It really is beautiful and the room was clean and spectacular but there was definitely a bad vibe here)
I just stopped by to get a couple of slices of Champagne Cake and Toffee Crunch Cake. Enough cannot be said about the heavenly taste of the Champagne Cake which isn't horribly sweet like you would expect a four layer dream to taste like. It is beyond delicious as is the Toffee Crunch Cake (it's a bit sweeter). OMG GO GET YOU SOME!
Beautiful relaxing place. The uniqueness of each of the rooms makes it ideal to vacation at purely for the sake of the hotel. The restaurant has fabulous food, but expect to pay a premium. If you want to save, there are many great restaurants not far. If you have never been to this gem of a place, pit it on your list. It is not just a place to stay, it is an experience.
Very nice and intricate details about the whole place. Main reason I go is for the delicious cakes they make daily!!!
Great Restaurant in a Charming hotel - must stop if you are driving by in San Luis Obispo on 101. Love their Cakes !!!
Great adventure! This is a unique place to stay and kind of glad to have done it. The room very different but also dirty. I rubbed the back wall of the rock shower and it was like moldy. Stayed in the Love Birds room and it was 198/ night. Left a tip on the bed as we left in the morning only to find no one came in to freshen up the room. Don't think I would come back or recommend this to any one. Feel cheated and sad that this once a memorable place is turning into a run down dirty experience.
Always a great place to eat and enjoy very much the atmosphere
Loved the "special occasion" dinner we had. Fun to celebrate in such an opulent setting. Service was also very special. It was a great choice for our get together.
They made us feel as though we were the only couple in the restaurant. It was amazing food, great service and which made a magical night for my honey and I. A night we'll never forget!!!! Thank you staff at Madonna Inn.
Have been back many times in the years since i posted my original review 4 years ago. It is such a cute place for a fun getaway. It is not a modern hotel so that should be noted before you come and set your expectations at an appropriate level. This place is FUN, it’s cute and it’s somewhere I will return to for many years to come. I hope to stay in every room before my time on this plant expires ???? Kitchy hotel on a beautiful property! Great for a girls getaway! The rooms are so fun and unique and quite the experience. The heated pool is amazing and the spa and their services were fantastic. Great locker room with all the amenities and the most comfortable robes! Massage therapist and esthetician were both great and very reasonably priced for a hotel spa. Used both Dermalogica and Jan Marini products. The staff was very nice and helpful. I will be back!!
It was wonderful
Yaboi Bubs (.
Came for cake. Was sold champagne cake, cookies, and expired water.
Woooowwww!! Amazing service
Staff were kind and helpful.
Good as always. Cant wait for dancing to come back.
Great food and service. It was nice to eat inside again.
Totally awesome experience.
For many the pink is the signature. For me there is just a little to much of it. The grounds are nice, the staff is nice, but they play the turist card to its fullest, and the prices reflect that. However, should you stop in, go into the mens bathroom downstairs in the main building. It has been featured on TV, and worth the visit.... truly unique.
Vert poor quality of the food.
Newly open for indoor dining! Tesla Supercharger charging station on premises
You can never go wrong with a visit to the Madonna inn.. brunch is a must here

This past weekend 2 of my friends and I went to the Madonna Inn with high expectations. When we got to our room we were amazed of how beautiful it was. But pass all that there was no microwave, mini fridge, coffee, hair dryer, or drawer space. I mean for the price we paid it should have that included, am I right? We then went to dinner and compared to the pictures it was smaller than what we expected. Out server was very rude and impatient. When I asked what she recommends she responded very rudely if I ‘needed more time’. I ordered the Beef Dip sandwich with fries. The sauce had no flavor, the fries were stale and bland and the meat was red and pink! The water was absolutely disgusting. The cake was overpriced and dry. We went back to our room and notice our neighbors acting very suspicious (maybe drugs). They were two grown men. I went out to get ice (which I couldn’t find, there where no signs) and he opens his door and just stood in the doorway. I walked downstairs and he just continued looking at me until I got back to my room. We noticed that they kept opening and closing their door and standing in front of our door. I called front desk to change our room but she responded by saying she can ‘send up security’. That would probably make the situation worse. They would’ve known it was us! She then said “ I don’t know what you think they are going to do?”. We are three young woman with two grown creepy looking men next door just chilling right in front of our door! She should have moved us! So the next day we called to get a refund and canceled the rest of our stay. They did not give us a refund but were able to cancel with no charge. Overall we felt unsafe, unsatisfied, and we would never come back again.
Beautiful experience, the history behind this place is amazing. Have to see it to believe it.
Love this place. So beautiful inside and out. Friendly staff and amazing views!
If you live kitsch this is a wonderful spectical
Its comfortable, very unique
Love this motel
FANTASTIC experience! Lovely staff! Lovely room! Fun for the whole family! Peaceful! Will go again!!!
Love this place.
You have to go there and see all that there is to see.
This was the nicest Hotel I have ever been to. Its architecture was stunning and even though they have over 100 rooms available, every single one is unique and extravagant. Definitely a historical landmark worth seeing if you visit the central California coastline.
I love this place. Whenever we are in town visiting, this is a must stop.

(Translated by Google) As many have described, the Madonna Inn is pure kitsch. However, the kitsch feels like 30 years old. The rooms are related to themes, but from my point of view the themes are only hinted at. I wouldn't call the rooms a designer hotel. Americans probably find this spectacular. The hotel is funny but also overpriced. The place is nice and well worth a visit. (Original) Das Madonna Inn ist wie von vielen beschrieben Kitsch pur. Allerdings ist der Kitsch gefühlt 30 Jahre alt. Die Zimmer sind zwar Themen bezogen, aus meiner Sicht aber sind die Themen nur angedeutet. Als Designer Hotel würde ich die Zimmer nicht bezeichnen. Amerikaner finden das vermutlich spektakulär. Witzig ist das Hotel allemal aber auch überteuert. Der Ort ist nett und einen Besuch wert.
Super cool place. Highly recommended. The bathrooms are very cool!
I love shopping and eating at the Madonna Inn. When I'm in the mood for turkey, mashed potatoes, homemade cranberry sauce, I like to share it with my mom. I can't eat an entire meal. The shopping is like going to a fun boutique. Christmas is the best time. We always find fun gifts to get for everyone at reasonable prices.
Great evening. Got to eat inside again! Yea!
Restaurant food poor, but service ok. Asked if we were celebrating an event, but never acknowledged.
One of a kind venue with tons of on-site activities to partake in. Love this place!
(Translated by Google) Great unique to visit (Original) Fantastico unico da visitare
Electric charges at the side...diferent power options
Better then ever! Always a joyful yummy stop~?
This place is a little outdated. Foods ok ,not great ,but good. If you liked liberachi,or Charles Nelson Riley then you'll love this place . But personally I wouldn't go back to this place to eat .
wow! This was totally amazing! I am from sweden, and madonna inn gave me a good chance to see america. (Pink america). We asked for a pink room, and we got one. Everything, the pool, the resturat EVERYTHING was AMAZING!!! The only thing... It was a waitress who was really unpolite. But that just made everything fun. BAi
Excellent value, superb food and very family friendly!
Deliciously tacky! In the most respectfully way to say it. It is set in a place of time with a sense of fifty's vegas/hollywood with 100% authenticity but in the best way possible. Must stop by and check it out!
A California gem! Wonderfully whimsical

The Madonna Inn seems like it would be a great place if all facilities were open fully for business. I bet back in it's hayday prior to the recent closure of California. As for my visit to Madonna Inn specifically for Valentines Dinner. We had some items, a bit pricey than other dining excursions in the area but since the Madonna Inn being unique, you have to give it a chance. Although during the closure of California, their only option for dining is in a.large covered tent in a parking lot. There are two dining tents. One for the Steak House and the other for the Cafe. Each tent has heat lamps scattered around as well as both large (large as double door openings) entrance and exit dining tents. So why can't they do the same inside??? The food and service was great. Anyway, the only reason for the 4 stars is the thing that doesn't make any sense with the dining situation. Otherwise, the business loses the parking lot. So sad.
Amazing dinner ???? ????
You can't get a better bfast .. Go Landon / bartender / server extrordinaire.
Fantastic service and very welcoming staff. Great food, drinks, beautiful pool and views. Very clean and quiet. Loved it!
My wife and I had dinner there on Valentines day, what a nice experience, It was in the tent, but they made it fun. Cannot rave about Alexis and Marco enough, they were on it, We never pored a glass of wine, and Alexis was always checking on us.
Went here on valintines day with my girlfriend and had an excellent experience at the bakery, but then we went to make a reservation, the lady working the counter was extremely rude telling us to wait outside due to covid regulations, which I didn't mind, however the next guest cut us and were not told to leave and after we waited for the next two to leave the room we were told to wait outside again even though we were following their rules overall we decided to stay somewhere else.
Definitely a bucket list!
We had a FANTASTIC server named Amanda and fantastic appetizer (fried portobello mushrooms)so delicious! My wife had filet and lobster (cooked perfectly)and I had the porterhouse steak also cooked perfectly. The meats were so tender ! It was our 43 anniversary and we throughly had a FANTASTIC evening ! THANK YOU TO ALL THE STAFF AT MADONNA INN!
Friendly staff nice environment even with covid-19 protocols in place
Grandson and I had a wonderful time. It wasn't super packed which was very nice and almost everyone was wearing mask. The walks were gorgeous too! Nice gift shops. The Champagne cake slice is huge to share. Super fresh! Plenty of nice places to take ???? photos.
Years of driving by, finally stopped but it was not to spend the night. There's a Tesla super charger in their lot. That and their bakery was the reason for my stop. The bakery takes special orders. I ordered a Napoleon as a surprise for my wife as we drove for our 40th anniversary. All was great, she loved the Napoleon and the surprise. Thank you Madonna Inn
The room was awesome in character?????, but had no refrigerator, microwave or coffee pot.????
If anyone is trying to find great deals for hotels and resorts check out ??????????.??? reserved a hotel on there and these guys had the best rates anywhere! Definitely everything you would expect and more. Do yourself a favor and stay here at least once. Unfortunately it's Covid so all the amenities aren't fully open but the pool and jacuzzi are!
A rare place to be sure. On the verge of tacky but great steak dinners and dancing and superlative cakes. Crazy grotto bathroom too.great local history too.
Get Your Game O.
I love this place! There's a ton of rooms and if I remember correctly, they're all designed in different ways! There's a pink room, a room that looks like a cave with a rock shower (my personal favorite), and a ton more. They also have a pool and an exercise room. Lots of hiking trails are nearby as well. If you're not staying, check out the Copper Cafe or the steakhouse. Honestly Copper Cafe is a really good place to eat at, delicious food (especially breakfast). I've never been to the steakhouse but I've heard people say it's one of the best steaks they've had. Either way, you should definitely stop by Madonna Inn whether you're on a vacation or if you live nearby!
Great service and great food.
Perfect place to just to get away. Or a Couple's Retreat. I plan to go back real soon.
Definitely everything you would expect and more. Do yourself a favor and stay here at least once. Unfortunately it's Covid so all the amenities aren't fully open but the pool and jacuzzi are!
Vintage luxury with modern amenities. Beautiful!

Good food, yummy desserts and fun atmosphere.
The entire Madonna family and its employees make all feel welcome
Steadily declining every year. Not the same quality of service or food as 2 years ago.
Very nice diversity of experiences. The staff were warm and helpful, with an elegance of nature reflecting a cultured purpose. The only exception was a young woman at the reservations desk during the day. Crass and a manner expected from a person with no meaningful intent for her future. Loathsome in nature, and a generally destructive force. The type of person who tears down what others have built. An absence of politeness, conveying a lack in interest and foresight in promoting mutual benefit. This young woman, lacks emotional intelligence. Burning bridges in every word. No concept of politely saying, not at this time. To instead threaten staff and berate customers. Perhaps overwhelmed in her position. Her demeanor indicates an unwillingness to seek diverse useful mentors. Important is to rate mentors based on useful outcomes. Most would-be mentors speak nice sounding phrases, that are deceptive and destructive. I mean this young woman no harm. But the staff are vital, and clients are not optional.
Excellent service and delicious food!
Fun and quirky or fun and romantic rooms. Beautiful pool, especially at night since it is up the hill. Staff is helpful. Due to Covid restrictions the restaurants are takeout or delivery only. They do have a large canopied area with tables and chair where you can eat if you want. There is horseback riding as a group along a trail. There are lots of bikes to use to ride around the large property and explore. Feel free to ask if you can see different rooms since maybe you will want to come back and stay in different themed rooms. We stayed in the Yosemite room. Walls are rock and feels like you are staying in a cave. The large rock fireplace and the rock bathroom and shower are wonderful touches. Shower almost feels like you are showering at a small waterfall.
Day one of outdoor dining, had breakfast it was very good. They have a big tent up to eat in.
Gattta. Try cakes
Trapeze setup is amazing. Very fun. Safe.
Not your typical hotel. Themed rooms that make for a great romantic escape, or something to spark the imagination of the kids. Either way, this place is laced with magic.
This is such a unique place, and I have enjoyed many stays and meals here. The rooms are magical. The baked goods seem to be from scratch and really worth a try. The only thing that puts me off is that they track you as a customer. Last time I was there, the woman ringing up my items at the gift shop asked my first and last name and entered it in their system. I asked why, and she fumbled around saying that it was for employee and family discounts. How does that make sense? I am neither. I have to say I chose to purchase things that I would have purchased there elsewhere after that. I was willing to pay the gauged rates to support the business but am not willing to be tracked without sufficient explanation.
Legitimately one of my favorite places I've been in a long time. Very happy and helpful service throughout. Incredible atmosphere and fun vibes! Loved it! Will definitely be back.
Open for takeout dinner and light shopping.
I come here often for breakfast. Prices have gone up which is why I don't come as often and the wait service seems to be getting worse and worse as I go more. Two older blonde waitresses really don't like there jobs, still left a tip even if service was horrendous. Was standing there a while waiting for anyone to take my order, I was ignored for an awkward 10 minutes while they would pass by and never greeted me. And when you ask for well done, expect charcoal. They got my order wrong and one of these ladies got bothered by the fact of me asking them to correct their mistake. I don't know if it's worth the 45 min drive up anymore. So many other breakfast places nearby with better wait service. Decor is beautiful though.
We had a great experience here . Love the room. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The properties done a great job dealing with COVID-19. We felt safe the whole time. Can't wait to go back.
It lives up to it's reputation for fun uniqueness. Check out the shops and bakery too.
It was a very memorable experience and the atmosphere and workers made us feel very welcome! Our new special place!
We had a very pleasant stay here. The room was wonderful, the staff was helpful, and all of their COVID precautions were appropriate.
The most amazing whimsical hotel we've ever stayed in!! We loved it so much!! Beautiful inside and out. There's 110 rooms and every single one is different. The food is delicious and the cakes are the best I've ever tasted! Everyone at the hotel is super friendly and so wonderful to all guests. I can’t wait to come back!! Truly a place to experience!! ????
Wow, let's just say they're fam to me now. Every dollar well worth spending.
Super cool place that will take you back in time to the good old days. This place was built with every detail in mind.

Take out from the restaurants was delicious. The water fall shower was super fun.
Very unique stay
Excellent food! We stop there every time we road trip up and down the coast.
If you're ever passing by Central California for any reason, visiting Madonna Inn is a must! You do not even have to stay a night at Madonna to enjoy the Inn! They have plenty of themed public areas that are perfect for any photo-op! Heck, even their bathrooms are themed! The gift shop upstairs is also a great place to grab some unique souvenirs! But their cakes... their cakes are really something else! My top three favorite flavors are: the pink champagne, for those who love lighter, and less sweet cakes, the toffee nut, for those who love decadent, sweet and mix texture cakes, and the good ol' classic carrot cake! There is definitely a cake for all taste buds! The actual cake is fluffy, soft and moist (sorry). Never had a dried or stale cake from here! Each slice is 9$ and could easily feed up to two people! I like them so much I can eat one by myself. Definitely 10/10 cakes and ambiance and theme!
Enjoyed a nice breakfast in the larger tent. Was nice considering the current situation.
Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo is spectacular in its quirkiness & the degree to which this place embraces the whimsical side of life. You can tell when you drive up, & view the pink light posts and pink accent touches on the buildings, that this is no ordinary place. When you walk inside, it's as if conjoined twins Liberace and Miss Piggy decorated this place with the over-abundance of fake flowers draped over furnishings, hot pink upholstered seating, pops of gold everywhere. It's a full-on questionable fashion overload! Their restaurant is a great place to stop and grab a meal, or coffee. Madonna Inn's bakery is exceptional! All the cakes they make here are delicious and decorated so beautifully. My favorite here is their carrot cake. You may consider spending the night here, as well. The Madonna Inn has quirky rooms, done in different varying themes, like The Rock Room, decorated all in rock & fabricated rock. Speaking of rock, a noise activated rock wall swings down in the Men's Room here. The sound of men urinating triggers this movement & the flow of water down this rock face, so your pee is flushed away by a rock waterfall. Almost like something in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! You really have to see it to believe it. A young woman wearing a camera asked me if I could go in & check to see if the coast was clear inside the Men's RR. I popped my head in, checked, & told her nobody was inside, then she quickly ducked inside and took some pictures Love this place!!!
(Translated by Google) Disappointment, old place, with a bad smell in the room, it is not what you see in the picture, does not justify the price (Original) ?????,???? ???, ?? ??? ?? ????, ?? ?? ?? ?????? ??????,?? ????? ?? ?????
Room is not blacked out. Has a beautiful stain glass window covers 1/2 the door but the security light shines threw all night. Then the sun blares through at crack of dawn ????. The heater made a noise that sound like dripping water, all night. No fan in bathroom for white noise to drown out sound of heater and people walking up and down wooden stairs and deck. And the shower faucet leaks. No usb port, no coffee maker but then again, the later two were not in amenities. Tough night. No sleep on my getaway.
Local Historical Establishment worth a visit every time.
you khow i am here right now
BEAUTIFUL, amazing, always enjoy being here.
So cute! Nice employees too
Lots of Tesla chargers but the Madonna Inn Super Charges are always the busiest. The bakery, restaurant, stores, room and dining rooms are the more unique in all of California. It’s a must rest stop every time. Every season is different.
This place was amazing!!! We already want to go back.
So greatly odd!
LOVE THIS PLACE. Stayed for one night as part of a girls trip. The rooms have so much detail in their design, and the whole of Madonna Inn is fantastically set up. We enjoyed most the evening at the pool and jacuzzis with some wine watching the sunset. The food was pretty average, but the overall experience, including the picturesque drive through San Louis Obisbu is so worth the visit.
Really cute pit stop on our journey from Seattle to Santa Barbara. Friendly and attentive service. We got drip coffee and a slice of Black Forest cake with cherries. The cake was delicious- moist and flavorful. Gave us the energy we needed to complete our journey!
Such cute rooms and the staff are really nice. Will definitely be back!
Perfect for a night (or 3) away with your loved one. Each room is unique and fun. The food on site is perfect and staff is there to make your stay enjoyable. The grounds are wonderful to just walk around and you feel like you've escaped reality.

Wow, This place has everything, But they are famous for their Amazing Birthday Cakes.
Unique hotel with tons of character and charm. Lots to do on the property including hiking, horseback riding, bike rentals, pool with bar and spa, and nice bar and restaurant.
Love it. Always have and always will.

Have to come again. Excellent
Excellent service clean and comfy funky rooms, always good
Loved everything!!!!! Go to their website and look at pictures this place is well worth the hype! The decorated rooms are fun and the food is amazing!
amazing hotel. loved it.
noisy by night from above
This place is AMAZING! We stayed in the Yahoo room and what an awesome room!!! The entire stay, from the room to the restaurant to the jacuzzi, was quite the experience. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we made a pact to come back at least once a year and stay in different rooms each time.
Love this place was beautiful
Off the bucket list great place
One more thing off my bucket list
We stayed in the caveman room and had a BLAST. So much DETAIL in every corner. The food was delicious. My boyfriend's first time there and we were so happy that the prices were great and that there was a dining area for to-go food. The ambiance is very kitschy and feminine. So fun! The customer service is so-so. Half of them seem to be mildly depressed. The people in the gift shops and front desk are very friendly and helpful, most of the servers and bartenders are checked out and would pass us around to order from someone else, so that they didn't have to take our order (it might even have been the manager?) The man who brought us our breakfast to our room was wonderfully friendly. I am a bartender myself, back home. We couldn't have been more pleased with the cleanliness and the whimsy of our room and the pool/jacuzzi which stayed open during covid. Thanks Alex and Phyllis!
Great time...wonderful room!
Nice place, but they need better beds.
(Translated by Google) Very nice place especially the restaurant. Very good food (Original) Muy bonito lugar en especial el restaurante. Muy buena comida
This place is truly what dreams are made out of! Stayed in the "American Beauty" flavor and it was really charming. The restaurant is also super delicious, definitely recommend not getting the farfalle pasta...I mean you shouldn't order pasta at any steak house...the French filet mignon was so delicious my mouth is salivating just thinking about it. The salmon was also really nice, tender and perfect texture! The drinks were on point and highly recommend the cheese plate!
If anybody is looking for great deals for hotels and resorts go over to ??????????.??? reserved a resort on there and they had the absolute best rates anywhere! Imaginative, beautiful experience - reminiscent of Wisconsin's House on the Rock but if you could stay in the house. So much to discover, so many hidden details meticulously cared for - exceed my expectations. The prices are sky high, (but worth it) but it costs nothing to stop in and just experience it. So glad I stopped by.
If anyone is searching for bargain deals for hotels and resorts go over to ??????????.??? booked a hotel room on there and these guys had the lowest prices worldwide! Awesome place. The food and service was excellent and the building and architecture was phenomenal. You have to see it to believe it. Great sculptures, fine art, impressive masonry and stonework, and carefully carved woodwork combine to create a unique experience.
Atrocious. Stayed at the Ren room. Paid ~$360. The room looks 'cool.' That's about its. The room was semi-clean, mold in the shower.. An then there is the bed that hasn't been switched out since seems like 1970. The dip was so bad I got NO sleep, and my back and shoulders still hurt 5 nights later. Save you money and get a newer hotel for 1/3 of the price and 5x the comfort.
Stayed in sugar and spice, nice and clean room, spent the day at the pool. Employees are great
For being in construction words can't explain what a beautiful architecture Madonna Inn has. The entire place feels so different. Was here for a Christmas dinner and the food was worth every penny we paid. Even the restrooms at this location is one of a kind. I think Madonna is probably where I've had the best carrot cake.
Excellence in every way!

Love peeing in the waterfall urinal! Best toilet I've ever used
Like Fantasy Land at Disneyland
Such a special place, great dining experience
I haven't been here in awhile but dining here is usually a very pleasant experience.
The first day we went service was great, the next day, not so much, we actually walked out and complained to the manager. Got subway instead.. hit and miss.
Our dinner was not good at all. Dinners were given to the wrong people. We asked for Iceberg Lettuce in place of the other lettuce used. On our plate was ONLY ICEBERG LETTUCE ONLY.
COVID UPDATE 2020 Like many people I decided to leave home for a much needed escape from quarantining, I expected due to a lack of bodies the demand for rooms would make prices more accommodating. WRONG $289 + resort fee and tax (which is combined in your bill so you cannot establish what is what) ramped one night up to nearly $400 that's a hundred dollars more a night than I saw online! 4 drinks at the bar was maybe $40 two years ago. We drank the same and the bill came to nearly $80 before tip. Thank God the Breakfast diner menu seems the same but our anniversary dinner in the main dining hall was far more than we have ever previously paid. They seem to have removed both the individual Coffee station as well as the individual shampoo bottles which is disappointing considering how much you spend nightly. Part of the fun of staying here is the 'old worldness', and I do not know a single person who does not like having a little bottle of whatever to remember their stay. They instead have opted for these bulky bottles welded on to the wall that make me think of gym showers. Apart from being just odd I found it unsanitary. Unless of course they are removing them from the wall with every occupant and washing them with boiling hot water, which considering the state of the grime encrusted showerhead in the Daisy Mae, I highly doubt. Oh and the best part. We couldn't even sleep the second night there because a hen party kept running up and down the stairs screaming like they were chasing the beatles every odd 20 minutes. Which was only continued in the morning above our WIlhelm Tell room by a rather different set of gratuitously loud sounds. YEP. I guess like most of us, I rationalized getting away to blow off some steam and to enjoy a sense of normalcy during an uncertain time. I don't know what I expected but certainly not this. If you want the true Madonna Inn experience I'd say to wait till after Covid when the've sorted themselves out. This trip was just more stress than fun, would not advise. 2018 Stop what you're doing and spend a surreal weekend in this hot pink fever dream of decadence and Americana. Book the caveman room, lounge by the pool, harass meandering wildlife, and order that montecristo! Got a vintage dress? Put that bad boy on and go dancing, live jazz is performed regularly just off the dining area. Vegans be warned, your options will be limited as the menu has not changed greatly since the hotels inception. Look smooth by calling ahead and have a chilled bottle of the hotels very own champagne waiting for you in your room. Breakfast seating is competitive, so wake up early to get in or utilize the breakfast order sheet the hotel places on your door's handle the night prior. Sit back sleep in and have your breakfast brought to you!
Ambience not great, food not great either. Dissapointed
Been on central coast forever and never been to cafe for lunch. Great food reasonably priced.
Tor made our first visit and lunch very memorable. Fun stop going up or down the coast!
Everything about The Madonna is amazing. From the outside to all the Beautifull secrets it holds inside. Every time i go i always discover something new. I love there Champagne Cake and Coffee and dinner there is always a treat i will definitely be coming back
Beautiful decorations. place with nice history
Raider 81 G.
A place with Great service its a must see place with great cakes and fin wine tasting
The food was awesome as well as the employees and lovely bartender.
Great place for hiking!!!
Hands down best experience of the year. Only takeaway was the increase in cost after I prepaid. I wasn't excited about the blindside but the facility and services were well worth it.
Staff very friendly and helpful
Great customer service. Great food. Couldn't ask for better.
Love the heated pool, great environment with lots of history of San Luis Obispo.
I heard a lot about the champagne cake and pink decor of Madonna inn, so finally decided to check it out. The champagne cake was alright, personally I liked their Black Forest cake better. They also had their Christmas decorations up. Worth it if you are in the area.
Loved it , prices are really good. Nice place .and you can charge your electric car there
Breakfast at the Madonna Inn, food was delicious, service superb, grounds Beautiful ????
This place is awesome so fun and great service!!
This was my first visit to the Madonna Inn. I was amazed at how the buildings were built around bedrock. The food was REALLY good and fresh. The staff, Stephanie, Cipi, and Marco(?) were so friendly and was willing to help if needed. I was there for my friend's wedding in the Secret Garden and the atmosphere was awesome. Especially since it was a Halloween wedding and the reception was in the evening. I will definitely be returning for another visit.
Awesome place. The food and service was excellent and the building and architecture was phenomenal. You have to see it to believe it. Great sculptures, fine art, impressive masonry and stonework, and carefully carved woodwork combine to create a unique experience.
Picked up dinner to go and ate at the beach ????? Delicious and what a beautiful place!
Fun and delicious
We had a fabulous time we will go back and we will bring friends next time. The staff was amazing the food was amazing. The Room was clean and we loved our stay there.
On Hwy. 101, near San Louis Obispo, food, hotel rooms, gift shop, bakery, fancy dining room, simple coffee shop, both are good food and atmostfear.
We heard so much about Madonna Inn breakfast. On vacation to Pismo Beach decided to go there for breakfast. We decided to order the food and have it outside. Waited for at least 15 minutes to place the order, only one person was ahead of us ordering, every 5 minutes someone will ask us; have you been helped? We would so no and they would say ok someone will help you soon!! Then we placed the order asking beforehand how long is the wait they said 20 minutes. We waited for an HOUR and still they were telling us another 20 minutes!!! We got really upset asking to cancel our order and only then they apologized and told us they are understaffed. If they would have told us from the beginning we had a choice of waiting or not. Never going back.
Been going as local to restaurant for years. Prefer copper cafe to steak house. They get GF bread in for breakfast and lunch at the cafe! Great desserts! Pretty goood staff.
We had our Honeymoon here in 1987 and have come back many times. However, there are a lot of changes that include a swimming pool etc. Time to book again!
Very nice stay, very clean room, very good food, the pool was wonderful and the service at the pool bar was great, just a very pleasant stay! The Tack room was really nice!
Lovely place! Very unique and different from anywhere we've stayed. Very comfortable beds. Great restaurants and awesome customer service. Will definitely go back!
Beautiful pink atmosphere, check out stained glass
First time there stayed for our 10 year anniversary they have a pretty cool horse back riding will definitely be back
If anybody is trying to find bargain deals for hotels head to ??????????.??? reserved a hotel room on there and these guys had the best prices any where! It has a wonderful heated pool with a bar. I'd say that's worth the price of the room alone. Steak house was delicious (great shrimp cocktail) despite being chilly in a parking lot. Staff was masked and we had no qualms about cleanliness. Rooms are kitschy fun. Can't wait to go back!
This is a beautiful place.
Such a wonderful place, very good service and good food.
Very fun atmosphere!
Service is good, food is good, atmosphere is fun, very unique place to eat.
Awsome! First time I had ever been here. A real treat for the eye and the taste buds.!
Thia place is amazing. I highly recommend it.
The cake and the drinks were good!!! The food not so greatttt!
Love everything about this place!!!
I don’t believe restaurants should run if they can’t handle the amount of people that they seat. If the kitchen staff is short or they are not use to handling other numbers they should turn diners away. If they are at capacity they should warn the diner that it will take over an hour to get their food so they can make the decision to eat here or go down to Denny’s. I feel I the server was very sympathetic but the management should know better. I will not be returning this place, I won’t be recommending it to folks. The decor of the rooms was lovely but they walls are thin. We heard the people up stairs stomping bad and forth to the restroom all night vomiting. We realize it not the staffs fault the building has no insulation(which they should invest in) or that the people above us were sick. But none of the management seemed remotely interested we felt they were a bit cold and apathetic about our lack of sleep. A compassionate response from them wouldn’t have changed anything other than my over all impression of the place and since most of my reviews of places tend to be 5 star, my review.
Left our room at 8am and didn't return until 9:30p and did not receive any degree of room service. No clean towels. No ice bucket. No bed linens. NOTHING.
We came to have a birthday lunch at the Madonna Inn on a Saturday. It was busy, but the setup in their parking lot left plenty of room for spread out tables and places to park. The staff were super efficient and accommodating to every table. It was a breezy, bright sunny day and I noticed the staff were moving their umbrellas so everyone was in the shade. The food was good and came out quick. I went to their bakery to see if they had any cakes available for purchase and they told me they had sold out by 9 am, but they had plenty of slices left reserved for the restaurant so we just ordered through there instead. I felt very comfortable going there as all the staff wore masks and all the table were spaced far apart. I would definitely return again.
The lemon coconut cake is so good and always so friendly and also nice and clean
A neat and nice place to relax for a day or two.
It's very old looking ,but its lovely all in pink ,my favorite thing is their cakes! They have a bakery and wow you must try their cake !!
Everything we expected
Love this place! I've stayed here 3 times, and it never gets old! This last visit I went with my Mom and brother. We stayed in the San Francisco room - we all loved the red/gold fun theme! Breakfast and dinner in the one-of-a-kind restaurant was delicious and entertaining. We felt like we stepped back in time. Loved seeing the characters who are attracted this place. Our trip included a visit to Hearst Castle nearby, which added to the unique memory.
Very beautiful and quite unique.
Pink Champagne cake!
I've heard about this hotel my whole life and stayed here recently. Every room has a unique design. Lots of hand crafted woodwork all over the property. The bakery is simply amazing. Friendly, welcoming staff. Worth a visit to check out this very unique property.
(Translated by Google) You should definitely take a look at this extraordinary hotel and restaurant. It is bizarre, overloaded and quite cheesy, but its overall presentation is certainly unique and special. Not cheap but still worth a visit. (Original) Man sollte sich dieses außergewöhnliche Hotel und Restaurant durchaus anschauen. Es ist skurril, Überladen und ziemlich kitschig aber in seiner Gesamtdarstellung sicher einmalig und etwas Besonderes. Nicht ganz billig aber dennoch einen Besuch wert.
The Madonna Inn is elegantly designed inside and there is a lot to see. Its best to make a reservation as this place is fairly popular. You can sit down for a restaurant style breakfast, or grab something from the Cafe and sit inside the Cafe or outside area. There are several gift shops throughout the restaurant area; Several upstairs and one hiding in the wine tasting downstairs. The service in the restaurant was pretty on point with the waiter and waitress checking in on you at a good pace. The breakfast was delicious and was pretty typical for a breakfast place. I haven't been able to stop talking about this place to my family and definitely want to bring them back. The hotel rooms are a little kitschy and I don't know if I could sleep in a brightly colored room. The gift shops have postcards of images of the room. Seeing them made me rethink if I truly want to try out the hotel next time. Overall, I would try the restaurant again, perhaps for dinner... and the vote is still out on a hotel stay.
Iglesia La R.
pretty place but weird..tried to buy some pastries but couldn’t find the place. it does take you back in time
If anyone out there is looking for good deals for hotels and resorts go over to ??????????.??? reserved a hotel on there and these guys had the absolute best rates anywhere! Amazingly good. They are paying attention to details and are back delivering quality and the Magic that the Madonna Inn has been famous for, .years ago. Welcome back.. to a blast from the past ? well done..
Amazingly good. They are paying attention to details and are back delivering quality and the Magic that the Madonna Inn has been famous for, .years ago. Welcome back.. to a blast from the past ? well done..
It's a charming place, could use better pillows(their lumpy) amenities(shower cap) better tech abilities self check out from the TV, room service etc..... even with all that their pink champagne is the best, and I would totally come back here.
Stayed in the 50s room! Fun! Food and drinks were great
First time visiting, so it was what I expected...Very nice to stay here ..next time when we are back this establishment...
We were determined to have lunch @ Madonna Cafe today. Workers ignored us, the bus person (male) was very kind, helped us with our drinks. Assigned waitress to our table never attempted to help us, we were very disappointed with the service here @ Madonna Cafe. We even asked twice if we could have a server come to our table. We will not return to this place. The place needs to work on customer service, be kind, serve with a smile. We could of walked out without paying for our 2.95 per soft drink, being the people we are we paid for our ticket. They never even apologized for the horrible service and on top of that it was very hot inside. I own a business, the importance of being kind and polite to each client is very important to me and our business. Work on your customer service Madonna Cafe.
Very clean and relaxing! The view from the pool is beautiful and the rooms are very interesting.
Fast service good food friendly people. I love it there
Most of the young employees were either rude or not helpful. I enjoyed wandering around the Inn. I had the white chocolate raspberry cake, over the top delicious!
Food was amazing, horseback riding was fun, rooms were unique but the A/C unit was so noisy we couldn’t sleep ??
Deziree Ruiz (.
It Ia Beautiful!! Have To Go Back!! Awesome!!!
Madonna Inn is open for brunch, inside!
Food was excellent
I think the Madonna Inn is probably the best place I've ever stayed. I cried when we had to leave as I had the best time. The staff when above and beyond to make us feel amazing. Something about the Madonna Inn makes you feel like life can be lived in techocolor!
I proposed to my now fiance here and the vibe was perfect the room was perfect the woman I chose perfect all around perfect
Have always wanted to stay here after years of drivebys and experiencing the restaurant a couple times. Decor is cool but the rooms are super noisy. Here I lay at 1:40am having heard every move the guests above us have made for the last 4 hours! Would NOT stay here again. Room selection very important if you want to sleep. We were in the Rocky Mountain room.

Awesome place. Supper clean rooms. Exceptional food at the restaurant! Thank you
Didn't stay at hotel but stopped by bakery. Their pastries were good, and champagne cake was good too.
I LUVED THE MADONNA INN! What an experience too bad covid closed down the inside bc it looks like a world of fun! Breakfast was good the yellow jackets weren't so much fun but it turned out they just wanted our jelly so we took the jelly pots to the center barrel of the outdoor dining area and there they stood! ???? The rooms were clean and the toilet seat was heated... lol luved that! Kids were having a blast here! The pastries are super size and amazing. My phone died so this is all I could get! : (
So cool. So pink. So unique. It's like a bougie mix of Disneyland and a mini golf place. All the best parts of course. I'm so excited to come back and see what this place is like after covid. Definitely try the cake! ????????
Absolutely beautiful. And the cakes are to die for. They do sell them by the slice. Kid friendly staff. Lots to look at. I deffinately recomend it
OMG!!!!! Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful!
This has to be one of the most cool, funky fresh hotels I have ever stayed at anywhere. I love the theme of different rooms here they have at this hotel. I was here with my mom for one night some years back. This is such a cool place. You should come and stay here, or grab a bite to eat.
Beautiful place, but Covid prevailed. Staff was a bit antsy. To be expected I guess, but pricey for the service.
Not as cool as it used to be
Bucket list checked! Super funky, cool vibes kinda place.
(Translated by Google) It is beautiful I really recommend it it seems that it is a fairy tale place I love it! (Original) Es hermoso realmente lo recomiendo parece que es un lugar de cuento de hadas lo ame!
Horrible experience and customer service along with very rude guests above and threats of being evicted for following hotel rules regarding complaints about other guests. Very expensive for mediocre although unique rooms. I had my first experience ruined and will never go back. I have a yelp review explaining it all it's quite a story.
Great food and thestaff was amazing.
Beautiful just beautiful
We stumbled upon this on our road trip and it's definitely worth checking out! Very glamorously tacky (in a good way)
Very cute place for pictures. Definitely more for looks, the food wasn't anything to write home about. Rooms were very unique, staff was all nice.
Very cool place
It's beautiful, esentric, whimsical. Love it
They have gone a long way to make your dining experience excellent in this day and age. Their staff goes over the top to bring you exceptional service. Definitely stop in, even if you pass it up, make a u-turn and stop. You won't regret it and they deserve your patronage
Love it so much
Great sweet shop
Doing the best they can during Covid19. Outside sitting, gets pretty cool. Could possibly use more heaters. Food and service were very good.
Beautiful, great food, service, Landscape
I adore this place.
Just got desert this time.. took it to go and sat on patio and ate.. great deserts.
Absolutely horrible customer service. Very dismissive and they make you feel like you are a bother to them. No one even slimes as if the staff is so miserable working there. I am not going to even waste one minute to elaborate on my experience there. All I can say is DO NOT waste your money!!!
I love this place. ALL PINK. I wish there was no pandemic so we could fully enjoy the place. Outside dining was nice.
(Translated by Google) Good place to live with the family (Original) Buen lugar para convivir con la family
Really kitsch and fun
Was an experience!
Not as charming as I thought it would be.
You'll be hard-pressed to find a place as unique as this one.
You must see it to believe it.
My partner convinced me to come and stay here. It's very pink. And very charming. Lovely staff and decor. Will be back

The service was great but when I asked about one of the meals because it did not have what the menue said , the manager challenged me as to what it should be , because he was not sure of the sandwich in question ... then went and got a menu and proceeded to backtrack over his previous statement and got very condescending towards me and my family . We decided to eat pay and leave and the manager ONCE AGAIN asked our waitress if there was any issue with us ...we will not be returning.
I love it here. Its a little expensive but its worth it.

This an unforgettable place. A bit over the Top. But so much Color and Fun. COVID 19, has had a sobering impact. Physical Distancing, has opened up out side dining. Big gatherings have been postponed. The help seem happy to have one visit. I find the staff eager to answer questions and give directions when needed. When you stop by Tell them Joe sent you...they will say Joe Who...thats me????
Very nice place! Very family friendly, but there were some speedo fellas at the pool. No biggie though!
The Monte Chisto rocks! Share it with your partner :) Wonderful place.
Love this plave
Went to the bakery for some birthday cake for my wife. If you like opulent cake, unique accommodations and historical landmarks, this is your place.
Best Best Best! This place is the real deal!
This hotel is absolutely exquisite and the service was wonderful.
The Madonna Inn is one of the most unique hotel's we have ever had the pleasure of visiting. We have stayed here several times over the past few years. And it's been great every time. The pool is heated and stays open pretty late in the summer; 11pm. They are adhering to social distancing recommendations so we feel very safe.
Went for dessert, loved it!
My daughter's favorite
Excellent food and superior staff. Great place on the whole
Spent mu father's birthday here a few days ago!!!
Amazing food an deserts, a most stop
She makes me stop here everytime we are passing by from LA. We buy cookies, everything is pink, there's a lot of wood paneling, they have a restroom. Thats all I have.
Very cool boutique hotel with some unique architecture. The rooms have different themes, so I could definitely see myself coming back to explore more of what they have to offer. We stayed in the “pony room” and it had so much more character than your typical hotel. The beds were comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was amazing. We had dinner at the steakhouse, and while the menu was on the pricier side, they served generous portions, and the food was tasty. The staff was super friendly, and even kind enough to deliver my sweater to the room when I accidentally left it behind at dinner. If you are ever in San Luis Obispo, you can be sure that the Madonna Inn will treat you better than any generic chain hotel.
????Absolutely Love Everything About This Place!!????
They need a separate exit . It was a hassle people coming going in and out . No 6ft was being used in line. Food was okay. Cake was really good.
Interesting place, Nicely decorated, good food, good service
Cool place to grab a bite and enjoy horse back riding!
Steakhouse was amazing
Creepy and whimsical time. Liked the food better in the less formal restaurant, and wished I’d had room for pink cake with shaved chocolate curls.
It was ok for the price
Beautiful atmosphere and food was great. Friendly service
It has a wonderful heated pool with a bar. I'd say that's worth the price of the room alone. Steak house was delicious (great shrimp cocktail) despite being chilly in a parking lot. Staff was masked and we had no qualms about cleanliness. Rooms are kitschy fun. Can't wait to go back!
The outdoor space, food, and staff were great!
T S W.
Fun place to visit!!! Ate there and also shopped in the giftshop. My love bought me a Beautiful jacket, Shoes and a Awesome Purse ????. Great management !!!
Visited for just a little bit on our road trip to Supercharge. I’ve been multiple times before and it is always awesome! Truly one of a kind. A must see in SLO.
Awesome location overlooking fields and mountains!
Always great to stop here and do some unique shopping. Customer service is good.
Love ther food friendly service my favorite spot when on the coast
Its always a fun place to visit
My husband and I came here for our honeymoon, and it was an absolutely impeccable stay. The staff was in compliance with mask wearing, the food service was all done outdoors, and guests were kept at more than enough distance. The only place social distancing was not enforced was at the swimming pool because some guests would move the loungers around or allow their children to play with other children not in their party. Mostly we kept to ourselves and avoided anywhere that we could not safely distance. Other than that, everything was perfect. The cake, the wine, and the food was all fantastic. Ruined me for just about everywhere else we went! The rooms are so unique, and the staff so willing to make sure you have everything you want or need. Worth the stay!
The staff is exceptional
Pay a short visit, it's really iconic, but skip the food. Mediocre American food.

Power out... poor menu availability..
I am going there later today because I am on a road trip and we are staying there. But I have seen the pictures of the rooms and it looks really cool! I am excited
I have mixed feelings! First off, it's a beautiful place. The building is really awesome to see if you just get down and walk around. The garden is cute and pool is small but it's cozy. Parking is a little limited and it's a bit of a hike if you're parked far enough. No elevators so you're walking up three flights at times depending on where your room is. They provide you with a refrigerator if you ask for it. We stayed in the Ren for 2 night and switched to the Highway room for 2 more nights. The Ren was definitely the winner. The decor was beautiful. It had high ceiling, soft rug and it was spacious. The Highway room was okay. We were really enjoying the fire place and balcony but you could hear every stomp from the people above. Doors slamming and people yelling. The shower was a little slippery and I almost fell so watch out for that. The room also felt a little cluttered. The furniture didn't really fit or make sense in the room. I think they could upgrade the room and give it a little sass. You need to call for reservations to dine outside. They were booked for the evening. So we asked if they could deliver the food to out room and they say they couldn't which was pretty disappointing. We walked to get the food and ate in the room on a table that was pretty much made for 1 person. I made it work for the both of us but it was a struggle. The food was slightly cold and it was pretty good but I felt like for the price they could of had better sides and definitely better dinner rolls. We took a bite and threw them out. Not worth the carbs. We did goat yoga on the lawn one morning which was different and nice. The instructor was really friendly and easy to follow. It was a good way to start the day. Madonna Inn is also really close to everything. It's about at mins from the beach and the shopping centre is right across the street so if you forget any essentials, they are easily accessible. Overall. It was a nice experience and i'd probably go again.
Just stopped in to get some pie... hands down the best banana cream pie ever...
Have been passing by this for years but finally stopped and went in for the first time. If you've never gone in I'd suggest going in just to see the unique designs all over. The bathrooms have interesting designs (specifically the men's downstairs one). There's also 3 levels of gift shops, pretty pricey but still cool to check out.
BEAUTIFUL! You need to make a reservation to eat there.

Great breakfast in the parking lot of Copper Cafe.
We did a road trip to the Madonna Inn for lunch one day - just to break up the shelter-in-place monotony. We had a great day, and lunch was a nice diversion. They are serving lunch outside currently. The service was a bit slow, but the food was yummy. Not a gourmet level food - but more diner level. I love that their chili and potato salad are housemade. They were delicious. We were super excited to try their cakes because they are huge and look scrumptious. Unfortunately, the two we tried weren't as good as we hoped. For instance, in the lemon coconut one, they used some of that artificial lemon gel for filling, and it just didn't land well. The hotel itself is historic and quirky, so it's fun to visit for that reason. It is a bit musty/moldy feeling though due to its age. All in all, I would totally do it again!
Loved it. Got to show my niece the Madonna Inn. She fell in love. My niece is a wine person and she did indulge. She was hoping to see a room or 2, but I told her they don't give the room tours. But we had a good time.
Madonna Inn did an excellent job moving to an outdoor dining experience. There is the perfect balance of shade, and there is a very effective windbreak. Food is still served hot and the employees all operate as if they are very comfortable with the situation.
The coffee was awful food was ok first time trying it too much pink
Favorite spot to charg my car at.
They need to improve the outdoor service. Predetermine where the sun will be at different times so customers are not in the sun waiting for an umbrella to arrive.
Very nice to eat and stay
The heated pool was awesome and very friendly bartenders
Champagne cake....need I say more. YUUUMM
People rave about the cake here. I tried both the Toffee and German Chocolate flavors. They were good cakes but not as moist as I had hoped. Huge slices and very filling. If you're looking for a sugar rush, eat the cake here. We had wanted to sit on the patio but there was an hour wait. So make sure you call ahead for reservations if you want to sit down and eat. We decided to get the cake to go and were directed to go order inside. From there it was SUPER confusing where to go and who to talk to. They need more clear directions and instructions on how to order to-go in the future.
Great steaks and fantastic service. Great place for a birthday dinner. The champagne cake was delicious.
(Translated by Google) Its food and its extravagant style and very good service (Original) Su comida y su estilo extravagante y muy buen servicio
The place was so relaxing. I do love the view at the rooftop. The pool was so amazing. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. But I think the rate per room was so expensive.
A fantastic place to bring the family for a special get together. Great food and service!
We called to get a reservation and we're told no reservations and it's first come first serve, we arrive and the first thing they all is so we have a reservation. We then put our name on the list for a table for two and were told it should be less than 30 minutes, after 50 minutes we left.
What a beautiful place! The room was clean. The food at both restaurants on the property was delicious. Every server was so nice. I can't wait to go back when the restrictions are gone.
Ugh. Why go here? Hard pass.

This place is awesome
I usually don't rave about men's rooms, but this is one not to be missed.
Beautiful place on an epic view of land. The horse trail was awesome. Staff very helpful and nice
Like no other experience...

My family and I were fortunate enough for a quick getaway during the phase 2 reopening. This trip was on my dad's bucket list and it did not disappoint! The rooms were lovely and despite our heavy-footed neighbors upstairs the stay was lovely. My daughter and I met a few nice people at the pool (at a distance), the garden path leading to the pool and the waterfall are picturesque. We had a lovely dinner, the staff was excellent and the steaks were delicious. The cafe was delightful, I enjoyed several pastries and they were all wonderful. The hash and eggs were top-notch. We also went horseback riding in the morning on our last day. It was my first time on a horse and my dad is an older guy but the ladies at the stables were so kind and patient. We had a great time on the trail and it was a fantastic 1st experience. On our way out my sister and I couldn't resist going to the gift shop to buy a few of the glasses/goblets for ourselves - they were too cute! I look forward to coming back when things have settled down to make an appointment at the spa and maybe stay a day or two longer.
Awesome place!!! Stopped here on our PCH road trip and explored as much as we could. We ate drank and danced. We should have stayed the night as I hear every single room is unique. So kool!! Thank You!! :)
We only went for the cafe, but it was great! The pink champagne is an absolute must have. We were very happy with our experience.
Food not that great Beautiful place to visit
Great fun place!!
Overall, best experience so far. But the place is old. So of course... Some of the rooms smell like musty or mold Functions like windows in my room didn't work very well Walls were...very thin. Could hear noises very easily, as we could be heard very easily. But... The place had a special touch. Scenery was beautiful. And the pool was wheelchair accessible. Other than the rooms, all other facilities seemed up to date and very clean. The women's bathroom near the pool smelled amazing. Horses were beautiful and looked well taken care of. Best place to go.
We visit often and stay in a different room every time. You never know what you will find. The food in both their restaurants is very good.
The room was great, pool was awesome. But the dinner for the whole table of 9 was horrible not one person enjoyed it. Though I would give breakfast a try was the same as our dinner experience. Staff was great, the food has just gone down hill.
A unique experience. It's like stepping through a time capsule, I expected to see Sammy Davis Jr and Dean Martin having a drink at the bar. It's clearly a local favorite though and the fact that it's as busy as it is speaks of its great food and local admiration.
A must see
Amazing spot, amazing service and the prime rib salad was huge and delicious.
Rude hosts. Great food.
We had a great dinner, in the coffee shop! Food was excellent, our waitress was charming! Finished off with the coconut lemon cake, awesome!
Amazing customer service. Our first room was super hot, they moved us to an even better room! Thank You, our stay was amazing!
Recently, reserved a room, $402+ taken from my debit quickly. Now, three weeks later NO REFUND!! despite numerous calls. The hotel cancelled my reservation for no apparent reason.
If you like the color Pink you will love this place!! Lol. But on a real note the food amazing, service perfect, highly recommend this place!
Awesomely quirky and fun to visit! We stayed 2 nights which was a perfect amount of time to enjoy the hotel. Basketball on pink courts, swimming in their zero-entry (and very well heated) pool, horse back riding through the hills of the property, and enjoyed the on site restaurants. Near downtown SLO if you want to venture out to shop or dine elsewhere. This is a geat place for couples, friends, and families!
My wife and I had a wonderful anniversary stay here. The room (Kona Rock) was beautiful the way the walls were made out of large boulders. The swimming pool was a perfect temperature. We received exemplary customer service in every aspect. We had a delicious dinner at the steak house, and ordered room service for breakfast. The only complaint we had about breakfast was that we should have ordered more pastries!
Food and food services are fantastic
It hasn't changed a bit. Still the best Black Forest Cake anywhere.
Stayed here and had a blast. Rooms all have different themes. Moved rooms each night to keep it interesting. Awesome experience. Awesome spa and pool. Steakhouse, breakfast cafe and champagne cake. Yuuumm.
Great place to stay or eat.
Way over priced. Clients not adhering to mask policy. A customer ordering cake with no mask on! When asked to put one on she said I've been in here 15 times and no mask why start now. Old and out dated nothing fresh about this place.
I came across the lovely Madonna Inn a couple of years ago i was googling nice romantic extreme hotels and found this beauty. I didn't get the chance to visit until just now and it blew off all my expectations. For starters all staff very friendly, cordial and profesional, we booked last minute found a nice room unique and rustic as I like it! Not only we had a TV, complimentary water, pool towels and robes! Comfy beds and modern cute bathrooms! The ambiance throughout the whole property is from different tales from the past, the garden brings Lewis Carol's Alice to life, the restaurant looks like a dollhouse and i bet all rooms have that effect too! We had a spendid breakfast, good service awesome coffee and service! We walked around the garden, pond gas station and their points of interest! The pool bar was awesome too! We went horseback ridding even though it was last minute we were accommodated, we got to ride super sweet horses Ricochet and Cuatro! The tourguisldes made sure everyone was safe and good! They seem to really love their horses and their job! Then we hit the pool! O my God! It gives the impression that you're at a Caribbean beach by the architecture and structure of the pool! Just a great experience will recommend and will be coming back for sure!
Cake were in the dryer side this time.
The cake is to die for????????
(Translated by Google) Everything is very rich and very nice with good care (Original) Todo está muy rico y muy bonito con la atención buena
A loud and bold decor. Pink is seen everywhere! Woodwork is beautiful with engravings. However for the prices of the rooms, food and gift shops. You'd think the place would be taken care of. The fountains weren't looking so well, the plants and flowers appeared to be dying etc.
Everything is up and running. Very enjoyable
I have not stayed here but visited a few times. And this place is very unique. Every room is different, even the main restaurant restrooms are unique.
One and the only unique hotel out of traditional we recommend to any one to come to experience outrage hotel in the world
Just checking in and we really love and enjoy every single space of Ur property c/ in was so fast and easy..
The restaurant is pretty good and the horseback riding was fun! Would recommend for any tourist enjoying the sites of California.
Cant wait to stay again
Soooooo unique. We had an amazing stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and cozy. We loved the food from the Steak House to the Copper Cafe were absolutely wonderful, great prime rib. Brought home a banana nut cake from the famous Madonna Inn bakery to share with family and friends. Loved the place.
Picturesque. Friendly. Wonderful place to stop, stretch, get a snack or meal.
I had to stop at this location since there is a Tesla super charger! A perfect place to stop while charging my car because this is a nice stop! Plenty to look at , buy and clean bathroom! This is now my new favorite stop! Plus I felt very safe Herron My mommy and daughter Tesla diva trip! I would love to come back and stay or host a party here! There was plenty of parking as well. They have a full restaurant which I would love to try. The staff was very friendly and nice there was definitely a good vibe about the place.
I’ve always wanted to stop here. I finally got to stop here on my way home from SoCal. When we first stop here I didn’t think it was open because of the quarantine but I think it was her first day back open everything was very clean and beautiful. I was so happy they were open because I really need to use the restroom for one and I got to get some yummy treats and see that I definitely want to come back here again. This is a place you can definitely stop at just to shop and get a snack they have an awesome gift shop as well.
Good place to dine and hang out.
Great atmosphere nice friendly staff Definitely would recommend coming for a stay The rooms are amazing
Even with the pool and amenities shut down, I had a great time. We got to go horseback riding, it was perfect. My husband had never been on a horse before and he was comfortable with the ride.
Food is a little below average but the Pink Champagne Cake makes up for it. Unfortunately, most of the staff, not all, act like they're doing me a favor by making eye contact. It's worse if they actually have to help. Consistently, I have gone in and more times then not I wait for someone to make contact, they'll look around and if another employee is near by, they will just walk away. I miss the days when people would smile when you walk in and hold up a finger which tells me they acknowledge my exisistence and that either they, or someone else will be right with me. Doesn't take much to keep me happy, or maybe I just expect more???? Either way, the cake is yummy so I prefer to be ignored when I get take out instead of getting ignored at a table. Less frustrating this way.
If you know, you know. Stellar. We got married there.
Best hotel ever, worth every penny
It is always a fun place to stop. Have lunch and admire the atmosphere that is quite amazing.
Their Champagne cake is amazing!! We always get a slice to share when we are in the area!!

Love to go one day and stay
Love the quirky themes
The Monte Cristo here is LITERALLY the best food I have EVER tasted!
We had a wonderful stay at the Madonna Inn. The room was clean and the staff were very friendly. The whole place is corky and fun and there are plenty of amenities available. The only criticism I have is some of the rooms need to be updated. Some rooms don’t have microwaves, refrigerators, or coffee makers. But overall a very positive experience!
(Translated by Google) Love the atmosphere of coziness and magnificence here. (Original) ????? ???????? ????? ????????? ???? ? ???????????
This place was awesome and I hope to stay in other rooms!
(Translated by Google) This hotel should definitely be on the agenda for every visitor to the California coast. Only a visit to the hotel's restaurant is worth the visit. Just wonderful. (Original) Dieses Hotel sollte bei jedem Besucher an der kalifornischen Küste definitiv auf dem Plan stehen. Nur ein Besuch im hoteleigenen Restaurant ist den Besuch wert. Einfach wunderbar.
3 stars was for the cleanliness of the rooms/ grounds and, mostly, friendly staff. The reason it only got 3 starts is because it was EXTREMELY (5 star resort prices)expensive and provided little to no services. The resort fee alone added an extra 100 dollars to our bill per night on top of tax. No room service, continental breakfast was 10 dollars per personbut the quality was even more limiting than a best western
This place is a must see the rooms are amazing, the restaurant has great food the champagne cake is to die for

Very cool place had lunch here many times excellent food and steaks try some of their cakes or take one home and check out the men’s room wish the lions were still there .
Very pleased with their grilled rib eye steak. It was the best in town.
Awful staff. Restaurant food was ok, even though heavily overpriced
Very unique must see
Place is an icon and a hoot! Must see.
The pink champagne cake .. enough said!!
Great place! Great stay! Staff is very nice rooms are clean and so cute.
very clean room and the sheets were clean as well. great service.
This is the place where you have one of those nights from a movie where the cast of characters is amazing and the drinks are out of this world. The bar staff is the most professional I have ever seen and makes the place feel alive.
I was there for my birthday over 1 months ago. A great time was had. Thank you

Love this place
Great restaurants best cakes on the central coast
Excellent food and atmosphere
Boniejakov's World Of W.
A amazingly unique and beautiful place!
Cute room, limited view from room. Shower head loose, room fan very loud. Had to walk 3 floors to room. That said, beautiful site, lovely woodwork. Lots of other stuff to do if stay afew days
LOVE it here! My favorite getaway spot! My favorite cups !
This is without doubt the most fabulous place I've stayed. Every room has its own theme and the pink dining room and ballroom are amazing. We were in luck and the ballroom had a Salsa night when we stayed and learning Salsa in that room was a highlight of my stay.
Nothing exciting about it just over priced.
We went to have their famous cakes at the bakery, delicious!
Kitschy turned up to 11. So different and fun. Great food.
Cool place to Visit ,You have to try Toffe Cake
A very special and unique experience. I drove by all the time as a child and now stayed there twice. Highly recommend
Of course, it was better when Mr Madonna was alive!!????????????????????
I LOVE THE FOOD. THE LIVE BAND PLAYS NICE MUSIC. VERY NICE PLACE TO STAY.
Classic and Beautiful place to visit!

It's a so different hotel. It's nice to know, at least take a coffee inside.
Tesla charging station is slow
Octulio Serrano G.
Simply beautiful place... excelent
Beautiful place. Great cakes. Little pricey
Kissfist place so beautiful
Madonna is a must! Especially if you are visiting from out of town. I took my Daughter out for a fancy date nice so we ate on the restaurant side. Great atmosphere and service. There is a bar and they have music and dancing most Saturday nights starting at 7p. There is also a more casual cafe side that had amazing hamburgers!! So restaurant if you want more of a steak dinner type of meal and the cafe side if you're in the mood for something more along the lines of a burger. They have a few shops and historical info about the property so definitely check those out, some meat stuff indeed!
The hotel is everything it promises to be. Wortha visit, especially if pink is your favourite colour
It's very eclectic and different. Not well insulated and you can hear your neighbors. I stayed in 106 it was on the end and the housekeeping room is next door. From the moment they start in the morning you can hear them talking and going in and out closing the door and opening the door. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The coffee shop was 62.00 for breakfast The gardens are well kept and full of flowers and plants that are bright a beautiful.
See other post.
Iconic, a must experience but not for luxury.
Great food, good service, a unique atmosphere all around it.
Great atmosphere, food and energy!!!! Must see to believe!
Very cool place, worth the stay
Over the top Fanciful Gothic and Swiss rooms. Amazing food top 3 in town hands down. Gift shops, 2 jacuzzis, 1 edgeless walk in pool. Hikes, horse rides, gift shops (actually has quality made gifts at a good price), they have the copper cafe, and Gold Rush restaurant.
Awful food. Very overpriced. Not all of our meal turned up.
Super solid experience all around. What a neat place. Really good customer service and the price was very fair. Great value.
(Translated by Google) Very rich cakes (Original) Muy ricos los pasteles
Put this on your Bucket list. There is no place like the Madonna Inn
Wow, what a magical, whimsical place!
Nice property- but the economy rooms area bit run down and the bar is not big enough if the hotel is full. There is a nice hiking/ mountain bike trail where the property ends
terrific ... we always go eat there ...
Crowded, gawdy. But it's what u expect. Staff sure has been there a LONG time!!!

I've been coming here for years. From there Pink champagne cake to there Hot Turkey sandwich. It is always a treat.
A beautiful getaway from it all. Our room was super clean and comfortable.
A truly unique, fun hotel to visit. Great food at the hotel restaurant - especially breakfast. Check out the famous Madonna Inn goblets!
Funky kitschy hotel, every room has a different themed decor, some more fun than others.
(Translated by Google) It's a place where you can sigh as you go down to La. The atmosphere is unique, so you can stop by and have a cup of coffee.

The Madonna Inn definitely offers a unique experience. The rooms are all super quirky, large and comfortable. The food in the restaurant is also wonderful. I still have not had a steak as good as the one that I had at the Madonna. I can't wait to return.
Has a unique atmosphere, great food and desserts to die for.
Unique hotel plus good steakhouse
The Copper Café was cute and the cake is to die for!
Stopped by to pick up a slice of cake after reading the reviews. It was well worth the stop.
Food quality has gone downhill. Sorry
Jordan Van W.
Enjoy my breakfast there will be going back
Amazing food, service and environment! You must get the pink champagne cake!!! It will change your life
I would like to note that the water is VERY chlorinated, very hard. Be prepared to step out of the shower smelling like you just walked out of the pool. The water they serve in the restaurant also tastes alarming. The hotel is beautiful and the view is lovely.. this was just a small detail that I have not seen in any other reviews.
Very big and pretty big dinner and a big breakfast
Best gift shop and wonderful staff.
Love this place. Mostly friendly staff. Good food. Overpriced on holidays and weekend. Thursday night was under 200 second night was 500. Not cool.
This was a very interesting place to visit. I stopped by for a quick self guided tour with some business colleagues on my way through town. There is a wealth if history and culture surrounding this intriguing and unique place. Worth the stop even if you are just passing through.
Cowboy up and get your dance on!
Beautiful!!! Rooms are a bit older, but super cute!!
This is a magical place I just love everything about it! Is truly romantic don't forget to try the cake
I think if I came here for dinner or Valentine’s Day I would think more of this inn but it’s not very nice. It’s large but worn out. Food: whoa the food is expensive and not tasty whatsoever. The tuna melt tasted like the smell of a rest area restroom. Sweet potato fries are delicious! Burger was bland and fries were from a high school nearby possibly. Dessert was MASSIVE and good. Service: not much to complain about but we did have to ask for water refills a couple of times. Nice kid I guess. The guy who sat us could really use some training tho, didn’t say a word and looked very uncomfortable. It’s cool that things are pink but you still have to care enough to deliver more than pink accent to worn out wood.
Love this place! We went for my birthday and it was such a fun and quirky restaurant, and the food was incredible! Love the pink chiffon cake and the water goblets. Highly recommend for anyone visiting the area.
Beautiful, friendly staff
Wayne's Hotel simple but takes you back in time nice setting near Pismo Beach.
Stunning motel x
It's SO PINK! In a wonderful kitschy sort of way. We were there to go on a trail ride and weren't disappointed. If you like horses do go for a ride. The view is pretty fantastic. Reservations for trail rides is required
This place is a happy place. No need to explain, you need to experience yourself.
great food, friendly staff, and if you have the right company a fun place for dinner. it's a tad on the fancy side, but well worth a visit.
Great food in restaurants. Unique kitchey decor. Fun place to explore excellent drinks in bar.
Floral and so relaxing ambiance
The best cake I have Pink champagne
Madonna Inn is a classic. Fair prices, friendly staff and lots of history in this local one of a kind establishment.
Awesome new experience something completely different!!!!
Great, awesome food
+ Beautiful secret garden with lots of native plants and easy walking path + Bakery makes amazing cakes and pies. The Famous Pink Champagne cake is amazing. It doesn’t really taste like champagne but the texture, cream to cake ratio, and sweetness is perfect! The cake is fluffy and light and the cream is rich and dense. The bright pink is also fun. Such an iconic cake! I love picking up a 10 inches for parties. You can easily order and online, schedule your pick up, customize any message you want on your cake, and they have it ready right when you walk in. + Great customer service at their bakery, restaurant, lobby, and gift shop. The people who work here are lovely and pleasant. + The rooms are amazing! Each one is a work of art! When you stay the night, they give you a postcard of the room you’re staying in. It’s a perfect weekend getaway. I love all the details in the rooms and they are so uniquely designed. I also love the tiny little Madonna Inn shampoos and soaps that come with the room. The packaging is so cute! + The restaurant in the hotel is super cute and have the most beautiful restrooms. The food is pretty pricey but the portions are HUGE. I definitely recommend sharing. Dinner came with complimentary cheese and veggie plate. The dining experience is nice, but the food is okay. I wouldn’t say the food was particularly memorable or out of this world. Just fair.
It was amazing . Neautiful rooms ans a great spa
Stopped by Madonna inn to charge my Tesla. I loved the hotel’s landscaping and the lobby area is kewl. Apparently all the rooms @ this hotel having its own unique theme. Didn’t experience it myself, but must be awesome. Also, this place is 15mins drive from Pismo beach (you could drive your vehicle @ this beach).
(Translated by Google) The Madonna Inn in SPO is not world famous for nothing. It has a very special story with very well-known personalities who have shown their hearts, charm and ideas. In my opinion it is by far the bizarre and most unusual coffee house / steakhouse in California. The cakes, especially the pink champagne but also the black forest or toffee-brittle cakes are amazingly delicious and, as the waitress assured me, have 0 calories on vacation; - / The staff was very friendly and is top professional. Everything was sparkling clean. (Original) Das Madonna Inn in SPO ist nicht umsonst weltberühmt.

OMG....the banana nut cake is life. Seriously one of the most delicious desserts I've had in my life.
Very eclectic,fun and a blast. Great bike trail, with bike rentals.

This place is amazing! I brought my wife for her birthday. I took her to the spa, then dinner, then dance. The room we got was atop. During the morning you could feel in the clouds. The service at this place is nice and fast. People are super kind and patient. The amenities were always clean and taken care off. There are many different options when it comes to the rooms. Go to their website to see pictures of all of them. Definitely an experience you have to try at least once. Dinner was delicious and my wife loved the cake and the balloon. There is a Tesla charging station and it has access for wheelchairs. It has a romantic vibe going on but I did see children in the premises.
The golf room was spectacular, had a great night dancing the night away. Dinner was fabulous
Beautiful place good food nice staff
Love this place! So unique and always great food for any event I've attended.
This is my favorite hotel ever! Every room is different and interesting and the hotel takes you back in time-so fun! A must-stay if in SLO!
Everything like food and mood interior Totally good excellent
Fabulous, cant wait to try another room and have that delicious prime rib.
Nicole Del V.
This place is magical!
Fun place to visit with great food
WHAT A DREAM LAND
Unique and eccentric. Had a great band playing when I came by for dinner. Will def try to stay a night here next time.
Rooms are unique. Classy decor. However, some essential items were not in the room I stay in. Such as no electrical outlet near the desk, no fridge, lights over the desk were controlled from the opposite side of the room, and the lighting in the bathroom was inadequate. On the plus side it was quite romantic.
Geeat steak sandwich for lunch.
I loved and disliked portions of the Modonna Inn. The front desk staff weren't all that friendly but some of their restaurant wait staff were fantastic. The rooms we fun, but it's easy to hear guests walking about and the pipes rattled when we flushes the toilet. Overall it is an experience, but for the room rates it's starting to feel a little dated.
Madonna Inn is a very unique experience. Elaborately pink and extravagant. You must see the men’s bathroom downstairs! It’s made for a cave man. Wink wink.
Madonna inn is so kitsch and cute! Fun decorations and atmosphere! I Recommend! The cakes and steaks are delicious.
Was a wonderful place have the best cakes ever and eberything there is done in pink
Heard this was a must see place when traveling the coast stopped in there Christmas Eve the men's waterfall bathroom was cool and all but the gift shop was ridiculous decided to have lunch there restaurant was not that busy lots of Empty Tables the two young people working the front counter we're laughing and having a great time and told me it would be a 45-minute wait so we went to Denny's down the street and had a great lunch as far as the Madonna Inn was not impressed
I will split this into two catagories: First, the place is amazing. A throwback to the big band era, complete with a big band for dancing and listening enjoyment. An experience to be relished. However, the fish was less than adequate. Our manager did his best to solve the issue, but even what he brought was not very good. Our bartender had advised us to go with the steaks, and maybe he was right.
Classic location. Great food, staff, and service. What more do you want? The bakery! The cakes are legendary. Take one to go and impress everyone with your good taste.

Wow, probably the most disgusting, worn and tired rooms/hotel I’ve ever stayed in. We stayed here last week and if it wasn’t for the fact I’d had a drink I would have drove away. This hotel is in major need of a deep clean, never mind some serious maintenance, improvements and investment. Our room in particular was awful, the amount of dust on some of the furniture must take months if not years to accumulate. The general standard of maintenance was incredibly poor and we were left feeling rather sick (look at the photos and make your own minds up). The hotel must make 100,000s and to be in this state is a complete F’you to people paying to stay here. I feel dirty just thinking about our stay here. UPDATE 17.01.2020 Noticed my photos showing the extent of the disgusting cleanliness of our room are now missing from this review.
I make a stop here every time I pass through San Luis Obispo. Have been doing so since I was a kid. Best angel cookies?? and other bakery items ???? Mom's fave -- got to bring some home every time.
Should not miss out on this treasure when in Palm Springs
Socks Is B.
Very good service
Me and my wife loved this hotel! We stayed here on our honeymoon and will definitely be returning many more times!
Great food and the atmosphere is priceless.
One of a kind ambiance. A throwback to when going out was a true experience. We sipped on libations and watched the dancers gracefully move across the floor. I even saw #buffaloco
Very cool place that was recommended by a friend. Glad I stayed for a night. Each room is inividually themed and the lobby and restaurant have cool designs as well. Pool and spa have a waterfall.
Very charming place to be
It's definitely a sight to see when you go there, food is made fresh, tastes fresh, they have a restaurant style menu and it's not too pricy plus the desserts are amazing!!
This is quite the place. It's has to be seen to be believed. Food is great too.
Had a great Christmas party here. The inn really goes all out for Christmas as far as their decor.
Nostalgic, Kitschy, oddly less pink now than when 40 years ago. Food very good, champagne cake excellent. Very fun. Great friendly staff.
if you here. don’t forget to check men restroom.

I came here for my birthday in November, the hotel is absolutely beautiful! Their cakes are amazing and so is their breakfast, I was kind of disappointed because their prime rib salad wasn't good but everything else made it worthwhile.
We tried there strawberry ice cream sunday, pink champagne and banana nut cake. VERY GOOD!! Especially with some coffee. They have a cafe side towards the front when u drive in. The restaurant is next to it in the back middle. A neat place to walk around. Very cool that they sell the cups that they serve ur water in upstairs in different colors. Hopefully one of these days we'll experience spending a night in one of there rooms.

Pool was freezing even though it says heated pool...rooms were clean, but kinda old. Grounds were pretty. Restaurant good, but service is slow. Not a bad place, but overpriced, in my opinion

Great place for the novelty but wouldn't recommend eating at the overpriced restaurant. Staff is excellent though.
Not what I thought, but a very awesome road trip pit stop!
Date of Visit: Thursday Dec 12th, 2019 Room: jungle Rock 139 Date of Visit: Thursday, Dec 12th, 2019 Room: jungle Rock 139 Several times, we have been to California and done Road trips from LA to San Fran, and each time we stopped at the Madonna Inn on the way through. We have never stayed there - but stopped in to look around - the dining room, the gift shops, the washrooms (yes - check out the men's Urinal). However, staying there just was never a convenient option because it is only a few hours away from LA. For years we have said - "Bucket List" well, this year - we checked it off of our bucket list. We reserved the Jungle Rock Room #139 - because we wanted a room with a rock waterfall shower, and 2 king beds. This room checked off everything we had hoped for in a stay at the famed Madonna Inn. It was quirky, unique, fun, exciting, and so much more The rooms are very comfortable - even for a room made out of Rocks and Zebra skin wallpaper. The beds are big and comfortable with great linens and many pillows. The Bathroom was big and spacious - with a nice double sink and gorgeous toiletries. The shower is made out of rock, it is a waterfall, and it is open concept - and the water goes everywhere. The property is gorgeous and sprawling, There are several buildings built on rock, and each building is home to many rooms of different styles. The in room wifi is very good even though the walls are made of rock. The property has a beautiful pool, hot tub and spa area. There are citrus trees around the pool. There is also a full service Gym on site as well. The Main building has a couple of beautiful and quirky restaurants, including the steak house and the copper cafe. There is a full service Bar to enjoy a drink, and dance hall as well, where there is a live band. There are 2 gifts shops to buy souvenirs and gifts - one upstairs, and a smaller one in the basement with the wine cellar. In the basement, I highly recommend you take a peek inside the men's bathroom where they have one of the most unique urinals I have ever seen. The Cakes at the bakery are amazing. You will definitely want to try a slice. The portions are Huge but the cakes are so light, fluffy and delicate without being too rich. I have wanted to stay at the Madonna Inn for so long, and it definitely was worth the wait. My wish is to have the opportunity to stay again and explore more (or all) of these amazing rooms. Madonna Inn has become a tourist attraction on its own, and worth visiting even if you are not able to stay there. - BUT you should stay.
Kitsch galore,a great place to stretch your legs and get a bite to eat.
Small room just decorated very fancy
Stayed in the old world suite for our first anniversary. The rock floor took some getting used to and there wasn't much natural light, but we had a great time even with me being 8 months pregnant. The pool area is awesome and there is lots of things to do.

It's one of a kind. Great new year's eve.
We didn't stay at The Madonna. We went to the restaurant and bought a slice of cake they had in the bakery case to the right as you walk out. ????????. So delicious we stopped a second time passing through. They have the bomb Carrot Cake and Banana Cake. One slice is enough for three to four people. Try it you will love it!!! Looking forward to a stay there.
A must visit for any tourist or local
Over the top hotel. Worth at least a one night stay. Be sure to check out the men's room.
Never stayed here but this place is beautiful
The food was great, the service was right on, & the surroundings were beautiful.
Good food and special atmosphere. Very attentive service.
This hotel is AWESOME! We stayed in the Gypsy Rock room with a waterfall shower. The whole place is decorated so well and has an amazing vibe, would absolutely stay here again
Tesla superchargers on the grounds. Have a drink while you charge!
Very charming but the food at the restaurant wasn't worth the prices they charged.
A magical place.
Good pee break stop
The food was delicious ????
This is a "Must see place" especially during the holidays with the beautiful decorations.
Great rooms, spacious, and of course a lot of fun! I would definitely stay again!
Beautiful & kitschy attraction! Got my first chalice to start my collection. Definitely stop in to see the wonderous holiday decorations in the dining room.
Great Christmas dinner!
Very cute outside, the rooms are expensive and interior was very dated and garish colors. Recommend checking out rooms online first. Have heard restaurant is great but didn't try.
Quite unique place and a must stop when in the area.
Hotel rooms have loud highway noise and don’t block hallway noise either. It wasn’t possible to sleep here, but the receptionist was very kind about giving us a refund. I appreciate the professionalism, just not the room.
Sure, I wouldn’t want to decorate my home like this place, but it’s a fun and unique place to stay. It was a quick trip so I’d love to spend more time to enjoy more of the amenities. Friendly service, pretty location.
Good food and service beautiful place to meet and greet
Rooms are pretty crazy bunch of rock but nice atmospheres
This review is just for a stop along the way on a road trip to Monterey. Really cute!
Large size meal and very good
(Translated by Google) Amazing!!! It is a place of story! (Original) Increíble!!! Es un lugar de cuento!!!
Awesome ambiance, and filet mignon. One of my favorites
We love The Madonna Inn. A bit pricey But the best dessert anywhere. We get it to go and enjoy it later.
This is a main stay inland resort in San Luis Obispo. It's been there forever and continues to provide large, yummy, breakfast, lunch and dinners. Don't forget the outstanding bakery if you need a gourmet cake, pie, pastries. Right off the freeway on hwy101.
This was my first time staying at the Madonna Inn and I was extremely pleased with my stay. The room was fabulous and the service very nice indeed! Stayed in Daisy Mae room. Will definitely book another trip here in the future!
Beautifull place is
Josh Hrapski S.
great place to visit!!
Unique experience everytime
Yesterday we had our annual birthday meet up with friends and family. Madonna Inn is like an old gem. I can appreciate the effort for the beautiful Christmas decorations. However, to drive hundreds of miles for a slice of cake that has been the same quality for years, but not this year, is disappointing. Everyone in our party felt the same. The cake was really dry and the portions were a lot smaller than previous years. So not worth the trip or money. We were all so disappointed.
Had our IBEW Christmas Party here. Wonderful time, the behind the scenes workers made it great. Food as always was amazing. If you come here, you HAVE to see the men's restroom!
Awesome mom and pop hotel
Room 148 is next to ice machine which makes loud noise randomly
Best cake ever!
Michael Hunter (.
Old world decor. Festive decorations for the holidays. Fun unusual bathrooms, a must see.
Breakfast is not included, for the price it is quite a downside
Worth visiting at least once!
I have never been treated so poorly in my like. We where a victims of mistaken identity. There was a group of people partying and making noise at 1 am. It was in the room next to us. I made the mistake of telling them to shut up. They in turn called down and I guess said it was us. My husband and I where sound asleep when the security came. And told us we had to leave! Then they called the real police. It was 1:30 am and raining cats and dogs. We where give a half hour to pack and leave. Then now they are charging us the full room price for the night we where thrown out. The manager was so rude and said the investigation was shown that we where the ones that where screaming and yelling. On my kids, I swear we where sound asleep. I have never been asked to leave a hotel in my life. I felt they treated my husband horribly due to his race. The 20 year old security guard looks scared to death. Even though my husband is one of the sweetest people ever and never raised his voice at this young man. This was the worst Experience in a hotel ever. We have been coming to the Madonna Inn for Christmas celebrations with lots of friends for years. That will never happen again. And the manager I just got off the phone with was so condescending and rude and would not explain his “” investigation. There are so many other beautiful hotels please people save your money and go elsewhere. Or at least don’t eat in the restaurants because their restaurant food is below standard for the price they charge.
Steak was tender and tasty. Everyone knows about the ambiance and atmosphere of this place. It's the reason why I dined here...to see it for myself. I came here for the experience not the food. I already prepared myself to cry when the bill arrived lol. But I enjoyed it.
I stayed and ate here. My stay was not memorable because we got one of the last rooms and it was nothing special. The restaurant exceeded my expectations though. I ordered the beef dip with sweet potato fries which were delicious. The entire grounds are beautiful and I highly recommend you stay or eat here if you have the chance. Tip - do not wait for the last minute to book a room because you might get disappointed.
Bathroom was amazing. A waterfall for a urinal? Oh yeah I guess the food was alright
Good food, good service, very festive.
Mold & damp AF in the rock rooms. Left with respiratory issues. Breakfast is 5/5.
Not only is this place great because of the different themed rooms but the atmosphere around the property and activities that entices you to come back even though the prices are a bit higher than most hotels and if it wasn't I'd stay longer
Most magical place.
Alicia Groves B.
Christmas time is my favorite with all the holiday decor. Very good food in the copper cafe. Make sure to try the hot turkey sandwich. My favorite.
I adore this place! They have awesome meals, their menu is decent, The chief cook in that restaurant is well trained, I enjoy a lot trying all their dishes. The food is always good, the service towards the clients is helpful. I frequently visit this place and I not even once was unhappy. I recommend it to all.
A very unique and fun place for every occasion
Worth a stop to look and even better to spend the night in one of their unique rooms. Madonna folks are major supporters of the community
Love this place always stop by on the way
Simply gorgeous! Worth an experience! Its rooms, its spa, its winery, and its dining, everything is worth an experience!
LOVED the hotel!!!! Such a magical atmosphere... we'll come back soon
Walked in to an empty restaurant and was told no tables are available for 3 hours.
Festive holiday decorations and great food
Kitsch AF but oh so wonderful!

Beautiful and interesting place. Highly recommend you stay in one of the unique rooms in this lovely hotel and wander around the campus.
Fun old-time place. During Christmas season it takes on another level of magic. The bar in the back is pretty awesome with carved wood all over the place. Will stay here some time.
Very unique room decorations.
Very beautiful in an out. Room was unique and fun
Beautiful, unique, and clean. Definitely recommend this place.
The cakes are to die for!
I went here on a trip with my gf and some friends for a birthday. One word. PINK! It was such a fun place, great food and the rooms are truly amazing. This trip was by far one of the funnest trips I have ever taken. I cannot put int words how incredible this place is from top to bottom. Getting room is very hard and takes time, but trust me, put your name in and wait. It is an experience everyone should have. SLO is also a wonderful place with much better weather than I am used to. Pismo Beach is also a short drive. Wonderful place.
Magical. Great Monte Cristo sandwich and cake .
If you want to empress someone go to Madonna I nn
Absolutely lovely place to visit, and with a nice restaurant.
One of my favorite places. The pink champagne cake is everything.
Love, love, love their cakes!
Super Duper place and hotel!!!
Madonna Inn is a special place, esp at Christmas. I did have several good times there in the past
Such a fun place to stay. Rooms aren't very updated, but it's still a great experience.
Beautiful place enjoy coming here
This place is unreal. It is so over the top and fantastically delightful. It's romantic and quirky and so unique. When we first got there we thought it looked like an adults only place but there were so many families! They are actually very welcoming to families. All the kids, girls and boys, were totally enamoured by every aspect of this place. The rooms were over the top fun and so wonderfully detailed - each one unique. The pool was a delight - its heated which is delicious if you swim in the crisp evening or morning. There are also 2 hot tubs and a spa. The spa was closed when we went for our night swim but it looked like you need to make an appointment. The robes are decadently plush..you just want to sleep in them. Honestly, one night here is not enough. We didnt even get to go to the restaurant. I'm sure they have a ton of activities to do both on premises and in the surrounding areas. We had an issue with one of our rooms and management was so accommodating and very nice about it with no problem at all. Check in / out was pretty easy although it would be nice if, when checking in, the front desk were more welcoming and a bit more enthusiastic, but they were busy and were nice enough. When we checked out, the lady told my daughter to take a post card of her room, which I thought was very sweet of her. Next time we are in California, we are definitely staying there again.
Fun and decent
came to the restaurant around 3pm on a saturday afternoon. tons of parking and got seated quickly. we ordered banana cream pie, the pink champagne cake, some root beer floats, hot cocoa, and a milkshake. everything was tasty. prices are a little steep, but that's not surprising for a popular tourist destination like this.
Just stopped in to pick up a cake their cakes are so delicious I got the raspberry and it was so yummy
This is a must visit destination. The rooms are incredible and unique. The two restaurants have such tasty good food and you'll go back just for the cake.
Beautiful decor!!! Amazing service!! will be back..
Such a unique place. Had a great massage and was able to relax there.
We always stop here on road trips!
3 times no reservations, I go for the prime rib. Never disappointed
A very exciting and romantic get away!
Fun, great staff, ponk champagne layer cake, and hilarious but clean and comfortable rooms. A must do!
Neat historic place.
Like stepping back into the 60's
The ambiance at this hotel is just fabulous.
The surf and turf is always on point
It was so much better when the main man Mr. Madonna. Was in charge. Staff was rude the five times I went. I know I make more then them but if you don't look like money they Discriminate against you. The last time I went is the last time I'll go. Never again. It's a shame what they are doing to the late Madonna Name. I'm Very disappointed.
A kitschy place that is just fun to try.
Great food. Really interesting place. Incredibly beautiful decorations
Very good good and staff is nice. Great place to go!
Such a classic place on the Central coast! It's over the top and out of date but that's part of it's charm. Enjoy a nice dinner at the amazing restaurant and then head over for live music and dancing, especially on a Saturday night. The decorations are fun and keep your eyes busy. I definitely recommend a stop here on any trip to the central coast!
Superb restaurant service, food was amazing and history of the hotel worth reading about.
Crazy place, super kitsch
Through back to a simple era. Lovely place with lots of history. Be sure to walk around the grounds and visit the gift shops for one of a kind.
Possibly the coolest bathroom in SLO...? Definitely take a wander around & downstairs if you get the chance. It feels like Disneyland
Very unique and interesting place! We are in the cafe and had the Monte Cristo sandwich with sweet potato fries. Very good!
Fun and kitchy place to stay.
The men's room!
Fantastic property unbelievable history extremely good food great service

One of the most amazing hotels I ever stayed at. My guest said it was like Disney for kids. The dinning experience is a must. Great service and entertainment.
Great meal. Great dessert. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Madonna Inn is well known for its champagne cakes and fabulist food and it's great customer service.
Breakfast is always really really good at this place.... The bartender Nancy doesn't amazing bloody Mary!!!!
We celebrated my parents anniversary and enjoyed everything.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS INN
Place was nice
Food was delicious and the setting unique. Loved our lunch here.
Love this place
Always a fun place! Stayed there several times ~ each time in a unique themed room. The food in both the restaurant and coffee shop is excellent. Staff is friendly and accomodating.

theres no place like it anywhere ive ever been! the sky room...its the limit! WOW! the pool is cool and the spa..! hello...BUTTERED RUM BODY SCRUB AND VANILLA MASSAGE. have dinner, have breakfast, have a lifetime memory
Its probably what you would expect it to be. I think the guest rooms are a lot more fascinating and fun than the main public areas. The main dining room reminds me of my grandmother's basement from the 1950s with all of her junk just piled up and hoarded. Gaudy, garish, tacky. I was hoping it would be a little more Swanky and Rat Pack like and that is not what it is. The food was decent.
We've never stayed there, so can't say how that part if it is. We go for the Champaign cake, which taste amazing.
I love the Copper Cafe!
Love the place its so beautiful detailed and they have a gift shop available and a clothing for your needs a bar and restaurant and diner really any better one place multiple place to dine really recommend for visitors to stop by love place and family owned
Great place for Pie, and food too.
Very elegant place and pricey, but was delicious
Beautiful I just loved it
Beautiful rooms and very friendly staff. Limited vegan options in the on-site restaurants.
Did not stay here, but used the facilities and super charge station. walked around the grounds and enjoyed the atmosphere. Guests all seemed happy.
Super cool place. Great drinks and decor!
Great cakes and super pretty place to stay at

There are no words; this place is an experience for every sense.
Best cake ever!!!
First time here and love it!!!!
Spectacular Stone and Wood
Great place. Employees are nice. Food is good to. Bakery is amazing!
Jim Wolf (Lucky Wolf D.
Easily one of the best hotels I've stayed at. My wife and I went here for our Anniversary. We'd both driven by it for years and finally decided to book the Kona Rock room. First off, the decor all over the hotel is amazing. The food was great, their baked potatoes were the best. The room itself was clean, well decorated, and very up to date technology-wise. Staff was very nice and helpful as well. Can't wait to stay there again.
A very interesting place to begin with as we heard each of the guest rooms are very well themed but because the placed seemed packed (and this is all the time we passed by), we did not bother requesting to have a tour of the place. The restaurant looked so good especially with their pies but long wait so we did not wait to be seated.
I actually enjoy the dishes and customer service, awesome area right next to my house. The staff members are always very friendly. Will come back again.
Very nice I really like it...
Such a unique hotel. If you're in the area, it's worth stopping by even if you don't stay the night.
Like a virgin

Great food, Neat Atmosphere!
A special, beautiful place once upon a time. Now too overbooked with too many events at one time. A lack of adequate facilities for the crowds. Too pricey for what it has become. On the plus side, the staff was friendly and helpful. The food we had was very good.
Must see this place!
So I uy8 nd and comforting
Always a fun place to dance!
So fun and over the top ????

Even if you are not staying here it's a great place to stop and have a bite to eat and shop! Nothing else like it around!
The atmosphere and ambience is very funky and different. Love it! An awesome experience.
Super super super cool hotel. If you're stopping by SLO, highly recommend as a place to stay. Great facilities (pool with a waterfall and pink tennis court)
Very eclectic hotel and courteous staff.
(Translated by Google) Yummmmmm! (Original) Yummmmmm!
It was beautiful. I Really enjoyed the shops.
We did not stay there but we did eat there. It's a fun place to look around in. And they have an interesting shop on the lower floor.
Love this funky place, may not be for everyone but we embraced the experience. Stayed in the Yahoo room which was fun. My only criticism would be the of the house band. They should be replaced by something more up to date.unless you are into old time dancing there was nothing to appeal. I think a DJ would work better.
One of the craziest and unique hotels I’ve ever been to!
My home town.. lot's of love and memories at the Madonna Inn. The best bakery.
Fun old place
Dr. Christine P.
I’m worried about this hotel. I stayed in the Carin room, which is one of the priciest ones. Bed and pillows needed to be replaced a long time ago. So uncomfortable. Hotel isn’t being maintained like it was in the past.
So much to love about this place. It's a magical fairy tale with great food and hospitality. Tesla chargers also nearby!
Great getaway for families and couples.
The cake is delicious and being here in SLO for 56 years I will always enjoy it!
Very pretty..wine tasting is great..

One of the best steaks I've ever had. If you like dry aged meat, this place is a must. The ambiance here takes you back in time tot he 1950s. Swanky over the top decor. Service was flawless.
Nice but hi prices
So fun! So unique and girly. Perfect for a bachelorette party!

Very nice place. Restaurants, gift shops and rooms. Large piece of property with easy access.
The restaurant has the best cakes ever. Every time we drive through San Luis Obispo, we stop. A week ago I purchased a whole Cheese cake-Yumm.. family and friends loved it. Don't forget to take lots of pictures. They have a great garden.
It's the Madonna Inn, nuff said! ????????
Fausto Emmanuel C.
This is a unique and different experience , a wonderful different feminine and pretty experience. The restaurant has great food, the people are nice, the rooms are warm and make you feel at home. You have to experience going to the men’s bathroom down the restaurant and see the cascade... extravagant place !
We didn't stay, just walked through. Looks like a great spot for weddings, bachelorette parties, honeymoon etc. They offer wine tastings and horseback riding as well as other activities.
We didn't go inside but there's a lovely and very clean restroom in the secret garden near the Tesla supercharger. Spoiler alert: The name doesn't refer to the Virgin Mary as I'd always assumed.
Absolutely beautiful! This hotel has everything you could want for a beautiful vacation!
The atmosphere is amazing, but the food is less than mediocre.
Was there for a wedding very beautiful.
Christine Williams H.
The food was not as good. The climate was so uncomfortable. The weather temperature outside was 60 degrees and inside it was 50 or below.
Lovely!! A bit pricey but totally with everything on the steakhouse was delicious and you gotta have their cake!!
Loved it amazing room and super fun to visit , plus so many pokestops
Very unique and kitchy. Rooms are ok for the price and location.
Great place for a wedding!!!
Fun place to stay when in SLO!! Pink is my color!
Outstanding dining experience. Food selection is amazing. Staff is great.
Oh my gosh, this place ???????
Eric & Kristy A.
A classic place to stop. Very original.
Wonderfully gaudy and eccentric. Stayed in the Spring Flowers room. Heated toilet seats, heated pool. BLAT sandwich was amazing.
Awesome German chocolate cake
I love this place!
10 out of 10 for the location. But that's about it. Service / Staff really bad. No smiles, no nothing. (2/10) Food is just ok. Little understanding of seasoning and presentation. (5/10) Events / Weddings - they got a nice garden for it. However, everything after the ceremony was a nightmare. Example: only one bartender was assigned for a 150 people wedding...thus people had to queue for like 15 minutes to get a drink. To sum up, come here for a coffee, enjoy the view but then move on.
Must have the Pink Champagne Cake! It is there best!
Food was delicious, young hostess girl seemed a little rude. Waiter was ok. This place is awesome. Make sure to grab a piece of black forest cake!
(Translated by Google) Kitch, bling bling, another world to visit (Original) Kitch, bling bling, un autre monde à visiter
CAKE. the raspberry white chocolate is my absolute favourite.
Dirtiest restaurant ever. Breakfast menu lacking. Dinner is mediocre at best. Sorry Madonna Inn. Only thing keeping you afloat is Disneyland style tourism.
Ask the concierge to look at "the men's bathroom"...it's worth it.
Of COURSE it's kitschy. That's the whole point. Plus, the cake is off the hook.
This is not your typical hotel. Each room has its own design and style but the rooms are spacious and have modem amenities. The soap, shampoo and lotions were really nice and the pool area was great. The pool area had a bar and small restaurant around it. You are you looking for a hotel with a personality this is the place to stay at.
Stop and check it out if you never have!
I have toured the grounds and am very excited about staying in one of the 110 uniquely decorated rooms. There is a garden, fine dining, horseback riding, a pool with a view, and the men's bathroom has a giant waterfall rinsing out the urinal. Amazing!
Do not let the age of hotel stop you from booking. We took the risk and booked a room and were shocked at how immaculate the room was. Web site does not do it justice.
(Translated by Google) A special hotel with a wonderland atmosphere, worth jumping only if you are in the area, including a very nice restaurant and staff (Original) ???? ????? ?? ?????? ?? ????? ???? ??????, ???? ????? ?? ?? ??? ?????, ???? ????? ??????? ???? ??????
Certainly very different from most accomodation we a been in. Quite unique. Great chocolate cakes. Beautiful pool area. Lovely gardens.
The wonderland of the central coast! Flash back to good old western culture, each room has a story. The mountain view is spectacular.
Cute and zany place to check out. Service is eh. Getting a slice of cake is a must-have experience when visiting the area.
There champagne cake is to die for it is almost as good as delanos old gingham bow bakery back in the day
This place is amazing!
It's a historical building with a rich history. The Madonna in IS San Luis Obispo
Wonderfully quirky place. We stopped for lunch on the trip between San Francisco and Los Angeles and found the staff excellent, the food delightful and the place enchanting
It was amazing !!!!!
Very eclectic place in between San Fran and LA. Historic building and each room is a different theme. The place is old and has not been updated. The beds are uncomfortable and the AC is very weak. The design of the rooms with the rock shower and rock sinks are not my taste but some people really enjoy it. Was there for a wedding and stayed 3 nights.
Summer Rae W.
The place is eclectic however you do find beauty. The cookies are amazing. The Pool was so much fun. I felt fancy staying there.
To all weary and hungry travelers, this place is not to be missed. Stop by for any meal of the day, you'll never be disappointed.
It was just okay to visit. We just took a look around. Decorations were kind of cheesy. Some of the wood carvings were nice but some was also plastic.
Neat place of the 101
I wanted to like this place more than I did. Decor is "unique" and memorable. However, our room was rather musty and there was an ash can nearby so it was also smokey smelling. The bathroom was functional but fixtures could stand some repair. The room we had had tile floors. Our socks were black everyday which has me question how often they get mopped not just swept. If you are a light sleeper, probably not your best option. We found the rooms loud, and without a curtain or screen on the stained glass front door, a lot of light comes through. Front desk staff was indifferent at best. Wait staff at steakhouse was great. On the plus side, the pool is awesome. The Secret Garden is also beautiful. Landscaping in general is quite nice. Parking can be tricky. When most guests are in you start making your own spots unless you want to walk up from the restaurant parking. There are lots of things to see and do nearby and they are right off the freeway. On the whole, we can check this off the list of places to go before we die, but doubt we will be back.
An absolute must when in San Luis Obispo. Best Tri-tip sandwiches this side of the Rockies! Dine in or out. Parking can be a challenge. (There is a cheap parking garage only a few blocks away.)
Cannot comment on this hotel because I have not stayed there. I encountered this beautiful Inn on the hillside. Don't know anything other than I think it's a place where famous people stay.
Madonna Inn is a very - when I say very, I mean VERY - eclectic place on the Central Coast. The inside of the building is full of ornate decorations, busy patterned carpets, and lots of pink! The champagne cake is the sweetest dessert I’ve tried in their bakery - I prefer chocolate still though. The staff was friendly, the food was mediocre at best, but at least they serve hot coffee! Over all, it’s a unique place to visit, if recommend dining elsewhere in SLO for better quality at a lower price.
Off the wall decor in a wide variety of room styles and themes. A place you have to see to believe, and an enjoyable weekend away.
Amazing rooms to explore, whuch still have comfy beds and a great shower.. great food, cakes, chochlates , pastries and lovely staff.... U MUST STAY HERE!
Was here for Tesla Superchargers.
Interesting place with lots of history. Had a great breakfast there and took home some yummy slices of cakes. We always take some cake home ..????????
Awesome place to start and eat and have a lot of fun. Awesome place for a night or weekend stay
Old World, 5 stars!!
Great food for good prize
I mean... if you need to get out of the rain and have no other options. Staff is super nice though! Watch out for the waterfall urinal; it pees on you as you pee on it. You have been warned.
Whimsical and well cared for immaculate grounds breath taking views....a SLO favorite
I went for Cali auto fest had amazing cars great people very nice place to visit looking forward to going next year and I highly recommend only 5 dollars for entry
Great place to stay for a special occasion! My husband took me for my Birthday. We stayed in the rock bottom room. It was like being in a cave. The rock shower was very cool, the water flows out of the rocks above and also has a separate shower head in the wall. We really enjoyed the room! The pool area is beautiful! LOVED the waterfalls, great picture spot. This is the second time we've stayed here and will stay again sometime.
MADONNA IN or as i call it Pink Cowboy Inn
Are you interested in eating the best cake of your life? Good bc that's what the pink Champaign cake is. It's perfect. Eat it.
Great place for lunch. Quite the experience with the decor - very unique. Be sure to sneak a peek at the bar and banquet area. Reservations are a must as it gets very crowded.
Beautiful grounds and very unique rooms. However walls are pretty thin and there seems to be a lot of loud neighbors (people there celebrating bdays or bachelorette parties). Also would have liked a mini fridge in the room.
This place is straight out of fairy tale. We watched the band and people dance all night. Great drinks - real drinks, and youre gonna pay for them! One of my favorite places in CA to visit.
I love going here with my mom! The decor is so cute and very unique. The waitstaff are always on top of drinks and orders and are very personable. There is a good variety of food, it always tastes really great, and the pricing is more than fair for what it is. I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes to get a table even when the parking lot is full and the place is busy. Also the slices of cake they give are insanely huge!
If I could split the rating, it would be 5 for setting but 3 for food. Old school diner for breakfast, old school steakhouse for dinner. But you have to go at least once, and Shaun when decorated for Christmas. And to check out the famous water fountain urinal in men's room (yes, even as a female I've been smuggled in when empty to check it out!)
It was a great experience! I love this place!!!!! Worth every penny
Juan Antonio Diaz H.
Very original place with its own spirit
A truly magical venue! Spoil yourself and your loved ones a little!!
Make a reservation if it is important to eat in the steakhouse. If not, then the cafe is just as fun.

What can I say the Madonna Inn is always a wonderful experience and the pie and cake are to die for

I'd been curious about this hotel for a long time—decades—and finally made it. Unfortunately, I can't say I recommend it if you're coming for an ironic, kitschy time. 1. Decor: Great! Fun, kitschy, and pink as expected. Looking a bit run down (a page was missing from our hospitality binder, cobwebs, view of the weed-covered generator outside), but what do you expect? It's the Madonna Inn! 2. Dining: Poor. No room service. Coffee shop food was so terrible (my kid couldn't even choke down the rubbery roast beef) we canceled our dinner reservations at the nicer Gold Rush steak house. For the kind of prices they charge at the "fine dining" restaurant, the food should be legitimately good. (We drove into SLO instead and for the same or maybe a tiny bit more $, had a lovely dinner at a creekside restaurant with an elegant menu and five-star service.) The one shining light is their amazing cakes! 3. Service: Mixed bag. The manager/host of the coffee shop paid us no mind while we waited quietly at the "Please Wait to Be Seated" sign, ignoring us until another couple showed up, and then he was falling all over himself to help them. Clearly there was something about the other people that he found more worthy of his good graces, and believe me, it wasn't our attitude or sartorial choices. We also had an unfriendly bartender who complained within earshot about specific guests in front of other customers, which was—wow—pretty gauche. But then, we had another three bartenders (we were eating our meals in the bar because of the fun ambience) who were beyond friendly, bending over backwards to deliver top-notch service. These people made our stay! Strangely, the service was a 0 or a 5, with nothing in between. 4. Pool: Pros—open til 11:00 pm, lots of seating, snack bar, cool waterfall and cute gazebo. Cons—no lifeguard, questionable/murky water. 5. Gym: Small, but no one was ever in there, so you could work out easily to the dulcet sounds of Toto, Stacy Q. and Whitesnake. 6. Room: Pretty good. Super expensive for what you get—essentially a two-star motel room for a three-star/mid level price. At $200 the room rate didn't break the bank, but on the open market such a room would go for $45-$75, $99 tops. Pros—pretty big, clean, nice two-sink bathroom, lovely amenities, comfy bed, robes, free wifi, a couple free bottles of Costco water. Cons—a bit run down, the blinds don't block out the outside so someone walking by a first-floor room could easily see in; view of weeds from the back window; no mini-bar, ONE outlet (!); tons of noisy construction, janky old "do not disturb" sign that should've been thrown out twenty visits ago. 7. Other: Loved the little gift and wine shops, where everyone was super friendly and there was a lot of fun shopping to do. The horseback riding on the premises was the highlight of our trip. At $65 per person for a full hour riding with friendly and knowledgable guides, it was totally worth it! Bottom Line: If you're looking for an ironic, kitschy holiday, there is not enough here in terms of activities and services and food quality to justify an overnight stay. Go have a drink at the amazingly ambient pink bar and skip booking a room. If you actually think the Madonna Inn is a fancy joint, and not in a kitschy way, more power to you—it's probably worth the stay, but I would spring for a more unusual room than the "economy" room we booked. Super fun, super memorable, but for me, not at all worth the price.
Unique place one visit is enough
Hostesses need to be more personable...seriously. But waitress and food made up for it.

I couldn't belive my eyes when i came into this piece of art. I was amazed by its beauty and style. Every corner you look, every room you stay, every path you take and every restroom you use, you'll find a genius a genuine master in this creation. I mean every single thing in this place is unbelievable. The rooms are insane beautifully decored in many colors and themes, the restroom runs a river (mens), the floor and walls engage you in full art presence. Its not cheap staying here but you'll never get anything like this anywhere, it is its own unique world and creation. If you pass by san Luis Obispo just check it out for a quick gift shop visit or a bite at any of the 2 restaurants inside the hotel. Be ready to pay top dollar
Amazing pool scene! Great for the family

Definitely try the pink cake at reuben sandwich in the cafe, and the rooms are incredible! The service is second to none.
Awesome place to stay. Super clean. Historic
Kitschy fun place....huge
Copper Cafe was very busy. Our server kept up with the fast pace and gave excellent service.
Repeat visitor, always enjoyed. Bought pastry to go.
Glorious throwback to the extravagance of the late 80s with the decor to match. Food was prepared well, drinks were strong and tasty, and the holiday decor was fantastic.
I don’t know what I can say that hasn’t been said. Beautiful hotel. Easy parking. Right off the highway. Ck out: Urinal in men’s restroom The gift shops The two bars Champagne cake Secret garden I didn’t stay in a room, but I explored the ground like if I was. Enjoy! Ps. There is a nearby cemetery with a cool pyramid, gum alley and the mission... all worth checking out
Beautiful place to visit with an awesome old time ambiance
Great scenic place with nice views, very unique rooms.
Look, if you appreciate the tacky things in life or a place with simply a good story and historic location, check out the restaurant and sleep a spell in the Inn. I will be back, my food was good and it's just a one of a kind experience.
Gilbert P. R.
When I'm up North I always stop at the Madonna for some cake!!!
Food at the cafe was delicious! The whole place was amazing! Love all the pink!
Breakfast was pretty good. They have cute shops, expensive but very cute
Would you like an interactive experience on what traveling accommodations were like in the turn of the century? Well this is the place! The rooms are Fun Fun Fun and kitschy as all hell its wonderful! You need to spend the night and try the pie! It will be an experience you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
Lovely lovely! We did not stay here but enjoyed the grounds and the restaurant.

Where I spent my honeymoon in the 70's. Our marriage may not of lasted but our friendship did. We took our little family there for dinner. Memories ?
My Wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We thought the hotel would be slightly smaller and more boutique but none the less loved its sense of uniqueness. Staff are great, room like no other and a great on site restaurant. There is a pool too and on site parking. Definitely recommend staying if passing by.
This is one of the best Inns I have visited by far. Although I didn't stay there the bathrooms and cafe were very nice kind of like a cave style. I paid $8 for a slice of cake which was huge and $5 for a milkshake which was fine. If your taking a road trip and want somewhere to stay and eat this is the perfect place
Love the chowder on Friday. Shelley is an awesome server.
Service was great enjoyed the food will definitely be back
Had lunch. Great to explore the whole place
This place was amazing. Can't wait to stay again.
Steak was good and have good cake great service was expensive but well worth it to sit in old style dining room...
Husband surprised me for my birthday and took a road trip 6 day exploring the central coast. Stayed one night there and it was beautiful but the people were so racist and were discriminating. Went to have lunch and request a table, the host made negative facial expression and asked if I was going to have lunch? I told her yes, why would I ask for a table if I wAsn’t going to eat there. She went to find a table and ask me the same question. To make story short my husband and I were the only Mexicans there and were ignored and people who work there made us feel out of place by being rude, ignored, body and facial expressions. Never again would I ever eat there or stay there.
Worth the experience... Lovely pool and friendly staff.
Love to bring my visitors here. Nothing like it!
I love coming here it's beautiful and fun everyone should experience it!
Very beautiful place
Just played lookie-loo. Wandered around the grounds and thru some structured. Very interesting decor. Caught a glimpse of one of the room's interior, very eclectic. Menu at the cafe looked reasonable. Did not see the menu for the dinner area. Having a dance floor was a plus.
Love the food and drinks, atmosphere is incredible, a must see
Absolutely a must do! This was on my bucket list. We stayed in the 'Cabin Still' room! This is an experience! Don't miss it.
Nice rest stop
Great food, eclectic decor, great service

We stayed here for our anniversary. The location was amazing. The decor was great. We went horse back riding and had a blast. The staff was very professional but could have been friendlier. All and all a great trip
Best hotel ever
Iconic hotel in SLO. Check out the cave hotel room and the giant shell uninal in the downstairs banquet room area.
Went there for my wedding reception and it's a beautiful place and the staff are super friendly
Cool hotel with lots to see and do. We had lunch there then did the horseback ride with wine tasting. It's a beginner's walking trail so not very adventurous but that is what we expected. Wine tasting was nice and the staff was very friendly and accomidating. Would love to stay there some time.
Fun times, swimming, eating, ocean!!

Stayed in the San Francisco room and there were 3 cockroaches in 1 night. The concept is really cool but I think there needs to be some level of upgrading
Great for charging your Tesla or the beer festival. Otherwise I know pretty much nothing about it ????
If your on highway 1 passing through San Luis, this place is definitely worth a visit. Very hospitable staff, great service and excellent facilities.
Nostalgic and unique but in need of some TLC - Carpets are filthy. No excuse really especially when the place is fully booked most nights. A must stop off your highway one road trip
Such a unique place! It's like a time machine back to the 60s'! Try the Monte Cristo!
Ssoooo beautiful!! Every room is different, so you get a different experience every time you stay!! Plus the food is amazing and the DESSERTS AND CAKES are to die for!! Plus the downstairs guys bathroom HAS A "WATERFALL" urinal!!!! What??
Has been 10 years since we stayed or ate here. This time I was just passing through on a walk, took pictures of the outside.
It should be called The Slamming Doors at the Madonna Inn. My husband and I were torn. We loved the room, the Daisy Mae. An all rock room and bathroom. A bathroom basin so charming with water falls and a shower you never wanted to leave. We looked forward to sleeping in our cool cave with a king size bed when it all changed and went south. Whenever any door shut anywhere near our room, and there were dozens, they would slam shut. Slam like you were furious with someone and you just slammed the door and walked out on them. At first we thought it was a couple of kids, but then it continued randomly throughout the night. Whenever anyone opened a door and shut it the door would slam and echo throughout. I was furious and around 8:00 p.m. I stood outside my room infront of all the doors and waited to see who was doing it. A young couple checked in to their room, unlocked the door and after they walked in the door slammed. Another gentleman walked into his room and the door slammed behind him. It's the doors, all of the doors. Please Madonna Inn, please fix your doors. I am so pleased that you are not owned by some big hotel chain, so charmed by your designs and details. I was happy with the staff and the food at your restaurants. But, the door slamming will keep us away until they are fixed. There are so many ways to keep a door from slamming, I hope you figure it out and post it on your website that they've been fixed.
Beautiful place, must visit if you like older styles and decor.
Best food we have ever eaten in 30 years of marriage. We go for every occasion, & often just for good food. Service is great, ask for Sharron in the steak house dinning room , simply the best! It is pricey $$$$, sorry but true!
Absolutely wonderful food, ambience, and service. I highly recommend this place to everyone.
Really fun and fancy night out, delicious food
The Madonna Inn is a historic and very flamboyant hotel that is a lot of fun to come visit, even if you are not staying at the hotel. We enjoyed getting cake slices late one night. The service was very good and we LOVED the cake. I highly recommend the Black Forest cake and the Pink Champagne cake. The hotel decor is one of a kind. It is PINK everywhere. Check out this hotel when you are visiting or passing through SLO!
Okay visit .. a quirky place with overdose of colors - pink mostly :)
(Translated by Google) A super crazy and charming place. Great live music. The huge dance floor, the food very rich. (Original) Un lugar súper loco y encantador. La música en vivo estupenda. La pista de baile enorme, la comida muy rica.
Great luncheon in Garden Room. Food was fantastic and mimosas yummy!
Yummy comfort American food and cake
Great for ballroom dancing, food and drink too expensive for what you get.
Nostalgic vibe and friendly faces
Always love it here, I recommend this place even if it's just to stop by to get a slice of cake or a coffee. It's so beautiful inside.
This is my second time here at the Madonna Inn and it's still so exciting see when you come over the freeway. It's just so beautifully built and maintained.
My wife and I came her for one of our best friends wedding! It's really beautiful and a great place!
just had breakfast. it was very good. Would live to back for dinner.
Been here on many occasions - mainly for dessert. This place gets 5-stars for its uniqueness and experience, definitely a place everyone should stop by and at minimum walk through if you are passing through San Luis Obispo. The service is very good, and more often than not you can always find people trying to dance on the dancefloor. There are two sides to the dining area, one is the cafe which is more casual and great for breakfast, tea, lunch, dinner and desserts. Then there is the fully pink dining room which is also an experience to my knowledge it's mainly focused on lunch and dinner. But looks like a fun date night !
The càke is very good. You have to try the pink champagne cake.
Loved it!! They go out out on the decor & entertainment!
Very impressive place, we came just for few minutes and walked trough the restaurant halls which are designed just amazing ! Haven’t stayed for dinner cause food and drinks are overpriced
Been to the restaurant, must try the black forest cake. Very interesting decoration of the place.

This was a very cool and Interesting hotel.
Really nice hiking spot
Its so unique that you do need to experience it just for the sake of it
Such an amazing time here. Most unique experience I've ever had!
I want to live here!!!!!!!! Its a really cool place to look at! We got dessert which was meh, mainly just go to see how cool it is
Beautiful hotel and restaurant and wonderful food. A treat for the whole family
It is so beautiful. I went there for my honeymoon around 30 years ago. My marriage didn't last but, the Madonna Inn was definitely worth the trip to see it again.
Love the pink champagne cake, haven't eaten in their dining room. The whole place is just beautiful, especially during Christmas. Everyone should visit Madonna Inn at least once!
Charlotte Ellis M.
A bit shabby round the edges and the room we were in (what’s left) seemed like the interior designer had run out of steam a bit. But the staff were great and the pool facilities were fab
Fantastic dessert cake
As usual, creepy excellent fun, from the over the top rooms to the circus being in town. Always surreal fun.
Good food, pleasant waiters in a kitschy dining room. Amazing desserts. Backed by a unique motel. Definitely worth a stop.
Good prime rib with an interesting ambiance that reminded me of Alice in wonderland
Good food, decor is unmatched and has been around forever. Friendly staff. Stop by you wont be disappointed.
Amazing pool and a lovely themed room!?! Madonna Inn for the win!
A quirky and quaint pink coffee shop is a must visit..
Very comfortable atmosphere
Place was beautiful. Room clean and comfortable. Problem with bill at check out over hour trying to fix.
What a apread...went to the circus on the meadows. What a sunset...

We had a wonderful lunch there. Not a single complaint. There was no wait to get in. Our food came in a timely manner and was done just right. Even the restroom is extremely unique!
Fabulous one of a kind experience....Great rooms, ambience, & dining...
Fabulous location for a wedding or special event. Attended a wedding in the Secret Garden and reception in the Venetian Room. Both were exceptionally well organized and looked amazing. Food was much better than the average large crowd meal at most events and the service was stellar, too.
Neat rooms, really nice pool and grounds. Nightly music and spacious dance floor. Friendly service. Good cake. Would definitely stay here again.
Love the bakery. The toffee crunch cake is amazing!

Classic old school motel/hotel with real charm and character
Delicious cakes. Beautiful atmosphere. A must see if you're passing through or haven't been in a while. Excellent food and customer service.
We stopped for dinner at the cafe and were disappointed. We ordered the tri tip sandwiches thinking Madonna, you know it will good. Unfortunately, the tri tip was the toughest meat I think I've ever eaten, with lots of gristle. Ick! The potatoes were runny instant and gravy from a can. (So the dog had a really good $15 dinner tonight) decided to try some of their world famous German chocolate cake. I'm sorry I did. The cake itself is a dense chocolate, which normally is good, but they managed to dry that cake out so much it was dry, crumble tasteless. Add, some simpke syrup or something to moisten it up. The frosting tasted canned, it looked like coconut pecan frosting. But there was no butter, pecans or coconut flavor. I hope they were just having a bad night, this used to be such a great place to eat.
Delicious steaks! Try the truffle potatoes.
Cute, but dated. There's better options around.

Wonderful little coffee shop. The ground are beautiful and the waiters friendly and attentive. Bought a half of their famous champagne cake to bring back to L.A. Been going there since our honeymoon in 1989.
Obsessed! The cutest most unexpected quirky pink paradise - must stop here if on a roadtrip from SF - LA!
Bakery black forest cake my reason for visiting!
Love the themes in their rooms. Staff is friendly.
Super cool. Never been there before wind ranks interesting decor for sure
Kitsch to the max
Great . Old tradition to stop here and it hasn't changed. Beautiful European feeling and good food.
A unique experience. Great steak. Love the atmosphere.
Our second time here. And our favorite cake would be the angel crunch toffee We love .
What a magical and iconic place!
If you are within a hundred miles of this place take a detour and go there it is fantastic. Make sure to look at the deserts probably don't eat them because you'll gain 10 pounds
Awesome breakfast, horse ride, then back for coffee and cake. reccomend reservations.
Very cool place to see, great food and large portions

A good place to stop and have a break from the road. Pink champagne cake is very good, my kids loved it. Black forest is not to sweet, I would recommend that too. There is a pink cow by the road on the right side of the cafe which is cute. The bathroom of course is mesmerizing.

It's a historic landmark that I have been visiting since I was a child. I love the ostentatious decor and the friendly staff. I have never stayed there, but love their coffee shop, desserts and gifts shops.
Only ate at the restaurant, have not stayed in a room yet. Their food is delicious and their service is friendly.
Must be seen.
I had not been there in over 30 years. The outside has not changed much and looks worn. Only went to eat. Their food is still amazing. And their staff is so wonderful and accommodating. The decor is like stepping back in time. Brought back great memories.
I dont get the fascination... I thought the furnishings were tacky. Just not my taste, I guess.

What a Magical place!. I just had my best birthday @ the Madonna inn. My booking agent Doreen L. Was amazing and let us check in early. We had the Crazy Daisy room. Loved it. All staff we encountered were awesome and rolled out the red carpet ( ok maybe it was the pink carpet) The Pool... Dont get me started...Amazing. Breathtaking veiws. A waterfall . 2 hot tubs. Adult beverages and nice lunch menu. Kid friendly to and all the kids had there best manners on. I cant forget? The Pink Champagne Cake... Dont go home until you get a piece of this. P.S. they run out early the cake so sooner the later. P.S.S. Thank you so much Madonna Inn!!! You made my day spectacular.
I Looove the Madonna inn. Almosphere and something totally different. Every time I come I have to go upstairs shopping for the most unique clothes.
It's awesome! Lots to see everywhere you go!
Great service, delicious food, nice decor
Truly an unique experience. Kitschy and fun. Bathroom a must see. Must have pink cake.
A very unique restaurant with beautiful pink interiors ...yes ...they have literally blended the color pink into everything in the most beautiful way possible ! Making it an iconic hotel in California ! Their champagne cake is ridiculously spongy and out of this world !!! The only negative being the entrees were pretty mediocre ! Overall a really unique experience ! PS. Even their restrooms are unique
Check out the men's urinal!
Classic place never to miss !!!!!!
Alexis Rae M.
We normally stop here to charge the car at the Tesla Supercharger. Madonna Inn has a gift shop as well as a cafe. We always grab some cookies from the shop before we leave. They are very good cookies and the cakes are great as well.
Very unique place to stay. Stayed for just the one night but the service was great, rooms are out there and in your face but each is individual and a great experience. We had breakfast in the morning and it was great, good food and service. Could have maybe done with a bit of maintenance with a few lightbulbs out in our room but that's me being really picky!
Best hotel in the world
The hotel grounds are gorgeous. Was surprised that as attendees of a wine tasting event, the front desk staff "... did not recommend..." we walk to the conference location, yet there was no offer to take us there. Ladies bathroom was a sight to behold!
It was very good food.
Brother Michael J Phillips, O.
Interesting place. Very odd decor, I suppose that's part of the charm though. Some of the people in my group were really into it, I wasn't really feeling it. Food was OK, a bit underseasoned and over buttered but I guess it lives up to everything it's trying to be. Its an interesting place to see some wild decorations straight out of mid century california and eat some food that feels like its from the same time period. Wouldn't choose to go again on my own, but if the family wants to stop here on a roadtrip through california I wouldn't complain either. 3/5
Truly needs to be seen to be believed. Magical place. Great food and a unique hotel. Roomes are carved out of rock.
Fun place..excellent food
I was hoping they offered a locals discount. Most local, non chain places do. Madonna Inn doesn't. However, their champagne cake is wonderful.
Just dropped in for cake. The slice of cake you get is bigger than many whole cakes. It's also delicious.

Beautiful place to visit ?
(Translated by Google) If you take the road by the coast between San Francisco and Los Angeles you must definitely make a stop at the Madonna Inn! This place out of the ordinary is worth a look, an ultra kitsch decor all pink. You can sit on the high stools around the bar / cafe or sit at the bottom of a bench by the fire. There are several rooms: restaurant, bar, ballroom to see all the more exuberant ones than the others !!! On the menu are good sandwiches, milkshakes in pink glasses, coffee that is kept warm and the like. There is choice and it is not so expensive. You can take the time to look at the huge cakes in the shop and if you want to leave with one of them. If you want to see grandiose, kitsch I recommend it (Original) Si vous prenez la route par la côte entre San Francisco et Los Angeles il faut définitivement faire un stop au Madonna Inn !!!ce lieu hors du commun vaut le coup d'œil, une déco ultra kitsch tout de rose.

Il y a plusieurs salles: restaurant, bar, salle de bal à voir toutes les plus exubérante les unes que les autres !!! Au menu de bons sandwichs, des milkshakes dans des verres roses, café qui est tenu au chaud et autre. Il y a du choix et ce n'est pas si cher. Vous pouvez prendre le temps de regarder les énormes gâteaux de la boutique et si ça vous tente repartir avec l'un d'entre eux. Si vous voulez voir du grandiose, du kitsch je vous le recommande????????
Never stayed at a place like this. Every room is unique and pretty legitimate with their decor. I could live here.
Still one of my favorite places to visit and eat. The staff are nice and helpful. The food is great.
Wow, its a one of a kind place with lots of one of a kind rooms. Great character!!

It was beautiful and elegant the food was good but the champagne cake was the best I've ever had. Going back soon
we get alot of white tilted heads looking at us. guess ppl dnt like mex and white mix. friendly staff awesome service
So pretty! ????
packed worth tourists, pink!
It is definitely a classic! The decorations are so antiquated & over-the-top. The pink hues throughout the restaurant make it worth seeing. Old photoes of the Madonnas with former stars, such as John Wyne & Reba McIntyre, are an added touch. I was a bit disappointed with the alleged famous cakes. I tried the chocolate & the pink champagne cakes & to my dismay, I was disappointed. The shops are varied & have a wonderful selection of leather clothing. Overall, it is worth stopping by to peruse the beautiful Flora grounds.
Great hotel, excellent bar and restaurant, property is incredible, 5 thousand stars.
Dated fantasy land. For the young, try not to judge. For the elder, its time travel bliss. We loved it.
Yeet I G.
Amazing and beautiful place. The rooms are so cool, how every single one is different and is all special. Coppet Cafe is delicious and very colorful. The whole place is fascinating. Pretty expensive, though. The cups there are so cool. They have unique designs. It is sad Mr. Madonna died. The fountain in the front is pretty too. And I haven't even mentioned the coolest bathroom stall! Go check it out! Clean and well maintained. Definitely stop by.
(Translated by Google) Very bizarre hotel but very worth seeing. (Original) Überaus skurriles Hotel aber sehr sehenswert.
I had been to the Madonna Inn for drinks before, so I knew when we made arrangements to spend the night that we were in for extravagant seasonal decorations and unusual rooms. What I wasn't prepared for was the friendly and professional service we received from every employee we dealt with - at the hotel, in the restaurant, and even at the gift shop. The decor may be unusual, but the staff take their jobs seriously and take good care of guests. I would stay here again just because it's a good hotel, even apart from the unique rooms and that kind of thing.

I'm not sure but I think five star dinners.
So perfectly absurd
It's a unique facinant elegant place!
This is a long-established Historic Hotel and restaurant established by Alex Madonna and his wife! They're great philanthropist to the county!
Good food. Fun atmosphere. Great service. Best place to celebrate birthdays.
Loved it. The history, the kitsch, the food was good and the themed rooms are fun.
Excellent fillet, the long island iced tea and peach martini were amazing, and the black forest cake was the perfect finishing touch.
Wow! ???? The Madonna family put together a breathtaking Inn! It was great to hear how influential they were in developing the surrounding area as well. If you're nearby and don't stop in, you're missing out!
Beautiful. Great food.
Great hotel and a great wedding venue. The "Secret Garden" is great.
What a unique place to visit!
Incredibly unique hotel. If you are traveling up or down the 101 its worth to stop by and have lunch dinner or a drink here just to revel in the decorations. Each room has a unique theme as well. You can spy them all online or on the postcards in their gift shops.
Fun rooms with fancy toilets :D worth the price if you can afford it
Very campy but super cool. The restaurants are OK not great. But the bar is amazing. They have had live music when we have gone.

The men's bathroom is awesome
A very, unique and quaint place. A little pricey but there's nowhere else like it. Nice views of SLO hillsides
Great place worth the drive!
Very unique decor. Great spot to stop and just look around. Had plenty of parking, food options. Looked as if each room was uniquely decorated. They even had bikes to borrow.
Everything I had always hoped it would be. 9/10 lives up to the hype; loses one star for lack of sea creatures.
Funky place .curious enough to want to stay
Great hotel, a must here
(Translated by Google) Very elegant but a little quirky hotel. (Original) Bardzo elegancki cho? troch? dziwaczny hotel.
This place is immaculately clean and put together. Expensive but gorgeous rooms, the carpets are plush and cushioning, the beds are comfortable. My room had a beautiful light fixture and was stunning.
Classic buildings. Be sure to check out the cakes in the bakery. We had giant salads which we will finish up today.
Best cakes for birthdays or any days.????
Fabulous experience. To die for cake.
Fun place to visit.
Amazing!!! Extremely friendly staff. Wonderful rooms. Very relaxed atmosphere.

An amazing place!! I loved everything about it. We ate both lunch and breakfast in the cafe and it was great! The staff was so friendly and helpful. The lady at the check in was also so nice and amazing. Our room was so pretty!! The pool was heated and was beautiful and had a waterfall and two hot tubs. I highly recommend this place!!

Quirkie, must see hotel. Did not eat there or stay over. Just a first time visit to check it out. Fun tip: the gift shop has post cards for each room, so if you see one you would like to reserve, you can purchase the card or make note of the room number.
Unique, & Stylish . Like a dream.
It's great we love there food ????
The height of kitsch and old world glamour, the Madonna Inn is little changed since its inception. Indulge in colourful opulence and a completely individual experience as each room is unique in its themed decor.
The room I am in smells like sex, death and other disasters have Definitely happened in here..the furniture is 500 years old and in not great shape...The front desk lady was an absolute snot. When I walked ind she gave me the dirtiest look and then assumed I had no money,as I was dressed in jeans and a hoodie and maybe didn't "look" the part.It was weird and embarrassing as there were other people checking in getting all the information.I was going to ask her about the spa, room service, the gift shop..as I was going to spend some dough ( of which, ladies and gentlemen, I have ALOT of)..Unfortunately, that will NEVER happen. And a 50.00 "security deposit"? When I paid way, way too much for this dump of a room in the first place? I don't know what that was all about BUT the dark haired older lady on 05\05 at appx. 4p.m was horrible to me and that is not acceptable. you might want to avoid her if you don't look like most of the coked out ex playboy bunnies that seem to come here with various botoxed Ken dolls or sugar daddies..not cool..not at all.
Kitschy and fun
The Madonna Inn has live music that is usually big band Era, Latin mixtures and swing dancing opportunities for both West Coast and East Coast, including some ballrooms and eclectic mixtures. I've been there for dancing on Wednesdays, and weekend evenings. There is a full bar, a spacious and elaborately decorated dinning area surrounding the dance floor, with a delectable menu. It is rather pricey however. Pictures coming soon

My kinda place! First time visitor, took a day drive down south on a whim today and decided to check it out. Since I love quirky, cute, vintage, and pink I was of course not disappointed with this gem of a tourist attraction/resort. Love the carnival and milk glass style goblets in all the assorted colors. Who could ever choose just one? The landscaping was uniquely cute and creative. The pink booths at the restaurant were the likes of my dream kitchen. The spiral staircase, the lights, the cave type atmosphere. Personally, working in the hospitality/banquet industry I've never been a huge fan of big, pricy, resort or venue style weddings because I've seen so many of them from start to finish and it's all too much. Cliche, overwhelming, over in the blink of an eye. So on and so forth, but for the first time, I thought this would be a super cute place to have a wedding. Of course, if this ever does happen in the future, nothing to big, expensive, or drawn out. Over all there's an overall feeling of magic I felt in connection with the Madonna Inn. Definitely a must see if your ever in the area. It's like walking into a fairytale. I will be putting it on my bucket list to return in the near future as a hotel guest this time.
We have been going to the Madonna Inn for over 40 years and we are always impressed with the decor and how they keep it immaculate. If you are going north on Hwy 101 the Madonna Inn is a must.
(Translated by Google) Very nice to see ???????????? (Original) Très sympa à voir ????????????

Love the whole place except for the waiterin the cafe/restaurant. Skylar was not what I would call professional at all, never told us the specials, we had to ask. He threw the to-go box on the table. When asked for his opinion on menu items he hasn't eat many...
I loved it
We love Madonna Inn!!
Best banana cream pie in the world!

Didn't get to stay long enough. It was a little old school for me but Soo worth it. Would def go back

A unique place with specially decorated rooms. Service is excellent. The gift shop is fabulous. The cafe is great. Our room was nice, however, it needs a bathroom fan and smelled like cigarette. Overall, good experience.
Great place to eat and the bar is excellent
A beautiful unique escape!
Service was good friendly people
The best dessert ever and food is fantastic
(Translated by Google) Fabulous! ! In the middle of nowhere in a stopover made towards Los Angeles is this very very special and beautiful hotel. It's worth staying overnight in one of their themed rooms. (Original) Fa..vo..lo..so! ! In mezzo al nulla in una sosta fatta in direzione Los Angeles si trova questo hotel molto molto particolare e bellissimo. Vale la pena pernottare in una delle loro stanze a tema.
This place is awesome! We stayed in the San Francisco room since it had separate beds for the kids. The next time we will try to get different rooms for each night. This place rocks!
I brought my 93 year old mother, who is in a wheelchair there, because she had never been there. First of all it was damn near impossible to get her inside. The upstairs shops are completely inaccessible to the disabled, which is disgraceful. They put no thought into handicap accessibility. Once we finally made our way to the restaurant, the server was totally rude, and ignored my mother, who is about as sweet as she can be. Over priced and over rated. Won’t be back.
If you love kitsch, you'll love this place. Fun!
Loved it! A true classic in SLO. Came here for my wedding night!
So quaint? It's charging.
A train wreck of styles
Waiters just ignore you. Food is ok
So so pretty the artful way it was decorated and built feels like a fairyland......
Very unique place. Worth a look.
This was an interesting over the top hotel. The vibe wasn't not very welcoming but cool to see anyway.
Al ways a good time
Christopher Lexx S.
Unique place. Frozen in time to it's own perfect vibe.
Fantastic food and great service. Beautiful. A must see.
Loved it! It’s a destination all on its own. Fun dance hall, live music, beautiful grounds, interesting rooms! Nice pool with waterfall as well.
Such a beautiful hotel! We stopped on the way home and I'm so glad we did. The hotel is very ornate and it was so fun walking around and taking some pictures. The gift shop has some postcards that display photos of the rooms that were fun to look through. We had lunch at the cafe, beverages and ice cream are served in goblets which is fun. The food was very tasty, I had a BBQ beef sandwich which was great and my son had chicken strips that he liked. The BBQ sauce and house made ranch were nice. The toffee crunch cake that I took to go is divine!!
A nice Boutique Hotel and classy restaurant including nice size Banquet Hall. The inside architecture is a must see including the beautifully decorated Bathrooms. The cake shop features nice Pastries and delicious cookies. The overall ambience is absolutely superbly setup.
Fantastic site to see, great food and desserts. Beautiful every step u take.
Nice bar. Great food!
Such a cool place to stay! My friends and I stayed in the Bridal falls room, and enjoyed the restaurant on soft as well as the large swimming pool and spa.
Fun quirky place.
Landmark of excess. Something to see for sure
Rooms have unique themes an iconic property.
Beautiful place, but services and food is normal. Food price is on the high side.
This place... Is really something. The decor is out of this world and the attention to detail is amazing. If you've got the time, definitely do dinner... The steaks are amazing!
It's a pink nightmare. Really cool place though, gotta at least stop and check it out. Foods great, rooms are really cool
Wonderful place. Everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime.
Best Inn I know.
Pretty kitschy.....but fun.
I went there for cake. Got the banana cake. I thought is was going to be more cake like than banana bread like. It was good though. Their portions are so huge. Ive had the champagne cake there before and it's alright. Not the best cake I've tasted before.
The food was good and the atmosphere was a blast.

Unique motel if a bit expensive. Stayed in the Safari room which has two huge four poster beds. Gold Rush steak house is very good. A herd of elephants was apparently staying in the room above ours. Sounded like kids were running around jumping on and off the beds!
Taking Boutique to the next level!
Good food, good service.
Gaudy and overpriced but an interesting place to visit. A one of a kind experience. Women got to make sure to check out the waterfall in the guys bathroom.
Wow! How have we missed stopping here before? Take a minute to read the history of this hotel/restaurant/bakery! A fun of couple of hours to go through the gift shops. We heard good things from people leaving the restaurant. We will be back.
Excatly the reason it is famous for$$ U
Great historical place with awesome atmosphere and food
Sonia Paz B.
I had a wonderful steak and lobster dinner celebrating my 67th birthday along my three adult sons. The food was awesome, the music wonderful , the ambiance, seeing the couples dancing made us all smile and the service was impeccable.
Cake was amazing! The cafe is called Copper cafe
We absolutely love it we go here for our anniversary yearly . It's one for your bucket list .
Food and hotel great. Service was slow
Steaks were perfect. Service was great. Will definitely be back.
A classic, especially if you're into pink.
Love the bakery! I always get mom her birthday cake from here. She loves the pink champagne cake! The price is well worth it! I want to try the restuarant they have there too.
First time visit and I was very impressed. The service, atmosphere, and food were excellent. I had the Reuben sandwich and shared the Champagne cake. Both were delicious. Well worth the drive
(Translated by Google) Very bizarre, but worth seeing. (Original) Sehr skurril, aber sehenswert.
Service is super friendly and very efficient/ competent. Cole slaw is made fresh on the premises and is delicious. Portions are large/ generous and the Appfel coffee is a must try - strong, fragrant and smooth! If you have room for dessert, the carrot cake and toffee cake are both excellent, but you may want to find someone to share with - each slice it's HUGE.
Madonna Inn's Diner is always great, but especially the Champagne Cake.
(Translated by Google) Very kitsch hotel with suites all different. Spacious room, clean and well equipped. Very nice home. Has a spa, swimming pool, jacuzzi, gym.

Love the friendly service, they all great one with a smile. Love the bakery!!!???
I know it's famous for its distinctive look but it really needs a update.
Traveling up or down the coast of California. Make sure and book a room for a night or two at Madonna Inn. Pick from their themed rooms with rock waterfall showers and amazing heated toliets. Be sure to book reservations for dinner and check out their specialties. Simply the best food ever. Lots to do in the nearby area. Hearst Castle is a great stop or just lay around by the pool. This is a really fun place to bring the family. Many of thr roons can accomodate large groups, of all ages. Family owned. A must on your bucket list!!!
Like having a beautiful hotel room in a wedding cake!
Meal was okay but the fun,old school atmosphere made it with it Had fun watching the dancers and missing my parents They would have loved this place
Another good stop with a Tesla.
Love this place!

Ornate-Exquisite-Opulent-Unique-Must See The Madonna Inn is really a treat to even just stop in and take a look. It’s overwhelmingly ornate but such an incredible fantasy world of beauty. There’s a nice restaurant, lovely boutique, a wine cellar shop, bar, and each of the rooms is decorated in a theme (I have not stayed here only stopped and had a bite to eat). They make delicious sweet potato fries. And the ladies bathroom is really pretty.
Beautiful place, everything is well thought in the design. My kids said this place has to be a 5 star rating.
Tacky. Very tacky. Staff is awesome. Food is ok. Dessert is amazing.
Worth stopping in, even if just for a look around.
A must. Barrel Room has a private staircase, huge room, very quiet, large private balcony with great views, short walk to downtown SLO.
Garishly pink in a good way
Can’t say enough - comfortable, clean, unique and great atmosphere. Staff were very polite and pleasant, the grounds of the Inn are beautiful and expansive. Wish we could have stayed longer!
A classic. Beware of rubber lobster!
My favorite spot in San Luis Obispo, especially breakfast and their cakes!!!
To be honest this place is awesome but getting pretty old. It could use a few renovations! Food was overpriced for the venue!
such a delightful diner!
I just loved the place everything is very wow you get the wow factor the men's restroom huge wall customer service perfect would love to go back if I ever get a chance again
(Translated by Google) Always a good place to go !! (Original) Siempre un buen lugar para ir!!
Very romantic place. Very special.
Very much cut from the same cloth as Clifton's in LA and Casa Bonita in Denver. It's this category of kitsch restaurants in the world that my girlfriend genuinely loves and I... enjoy. The quality-per-dollar usually suffers in some way, and the Madonna was no exception, but that's not why you go.
Absolutely awesome! Huge clean rooms, gorgeous decor, great dining, 2 restaurants, 1000 acres to explore hiking, horseback riding, cycling. Pool, saunas, spa, tennis courts, etc... Buildings are so unique and amazing You must go!!
I loved that each room is themed differently, but it is a little expensive. The pool is nice and the horses and cows were fun to see. Overall good experience.
Kitchy and fun with good service.
Great atmosphere, beautiful grounds and delicious food. Wine tasting in the cellar.
Unique setting, good wine tasting, friendly staff.
Comfortable room, excited food.
Lovely place to stay.
Adorable setting!! Excellent, friendly service!! Good food too!!
Unique place, must see!
Cake is the best!

I bought a cake it was excellent
A little bit of Heaven on Earth and some quirkiness.
This is a SLO town tradition, go to the Madonna Inn, it’s a historic landmark. You don’t even have to buy anything, the employees are used to people just browsing and checking everything out. If you get a meal, there’s a cheaper breakfast option but there’s also the bar in the afternoon and evenings, as well as the evening restaurant. You will be impressed just by walking through the property. On Sundays, there is a West Coast Swing dance as well, and on Mondays there’s Lindy Hop/East Coast Swing dance for free. The last note I have, if you see anything here, go into the men’s restroom. I’m not even kidding. There is a waterfall urinal, it’s a SLO county tradition to see it. It’s made of giant rocks moulded together into a waterfall form and at least 7ft wide. And yes, everyone brings women into the restroom just to see it, but make sure it’s not occupied first.
We didn’t stay here but we did come to visit look around this place is a really cool hotel if you want to have a fun time go to this hotel each room is different and really cool when in the area make sure you make reservations in advance this hotel gets booked up far in advance The grounds of the hotel as you can see from the pictures are amazing I don’t have any pictures from the inside or of the hotel but this place is been here for many years people travel from all over the world to come see this place you should too
Food was meh. Overcooked mushy vegetables, decent cut of beef... but don't come here for the food, come for the insane funhouse decor. The Madonna is one of a kind.
We love staying at the Madonna Inn, beautiful hotel, very clean
Very unique place. Kitsch to the max. This place would cost two fortunes to build again. The property is well maintained and in good condition.
This place is amazing! The rooms are so much fun, spacious, double sinks and a beautiful shower, all the amenities. But better yet are the TESLA SUPERCHARGERS onsite. And stop by the spa for a terrific massage. I was ready think this place was just a campy mildewed old motel but it's absolutely a beautiful property. Dinner in the steakhouse even works for me (vegetarian), plenty of choices. There's a shop, a cafe, and another bar with a stage and a dance floor. Plus nice hiking right out the front door. Love it!
(Translated by Google) Nice hotel recommended (Original) ???? ???? ?????
Buy the cake. Eat said cake.
Madonna inn is so well decorated its very old English decor besutiful
Jaira Figueroa A.
Always a great place to visit for a cocktail
Terri & B.
Went for lunch, Monte Cristo was delish.
We took an up north excursion 1 item on list was seeing MADONNA INN we had 1.5 to spend there so we had a great meal under 30 bux Everything was fabulous
Very enjoyable and fun visit! The pool, jacuzzi, cafe, and bar were wonderful and the staff are attentive and friendly. Our themed room was clean and unique. Would definitely recommend this for a special weekend!
I dont get it why
There was a mixup with my reservation and the room I had booked ahead of time was no longer available for that night. Customer service was wonderful and quickly got us booked into the Madonna Suite instead. It was absolutely gorgeous! Totally recommend!
Just got here and enjoying myself
So cool! We stayed in a cave! With a waterfall!
I love the Madonna Inn, I've lived in the Central Coast for more than 30 years and I had never been here. I came for cake and coffee and it was delicious! The place is nice it's like to step into a whole another world. It was very homey and cozy, our server Eli was very nice and attentive. I loved their bathrooms I had never seen a place have a restroom for little girls, it was too cute. I will definitely come back again to try some of their dishes. Oh and one last thing I bought my dogs a dog cookie here and they loved it.
This place reminds me Disney Land, but very outdated
Beautiful hotel. Stayed in the desert sand room. So large and clean. The pool and jacuzzi are amazing so is the restaurant.
Incredible ambiance ,waitress was incredible.food awesome.

Only went to sightsee. What I saw I enjoyed
Probably would have been nicer for me minus the rain lol I was with my daughter & we stayed there overnight & the staff at the restaurant & bar were on point & very friendly/courteous
Not the best experience. The room was so cold, even with the fireplace & heater on. I was expecting more out of the room for the price. It was just mediocre. They say you get what you pay for... Ya, not this time $275 later... This was room 144. On a positive note the food was fantastic.????
Highly recommended and reasonable price
Varda Faghir H.
This place is really cool. Their breakfasts are so tasty and come in big portions. Their bacon and biscuits are a must try!
Try the beef. Anything tri-tip is great.
Dishes were dirty, food wasn't all that great
Karen Bird W.
Quality of food could be better. Huge portions
Welcome home dinner with friends. Dinner was delicious and service was on point! Dessert, mouthwatering as always. Live music was the icing!! Thanks MI, loved it!!!
We had a fabulous time! Took the Surfliner up from the Irvine station to San Luis Obispo to spend a weekend at the Madonna Inn. Definitely recommend the experience!
Martha E D.
Kitschy, unique place. Every room is decorated differently, each with it's own theme. Be warned - the 'rock' rooms are on the bottom level, and are a bit cool. Good for the summer, but a bit brisk in the winter. A friend recommended the Madonna inn, and it is definitely a life memory. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique experience
Time machine. Great atmosphere. Worrth walking around a little. One of a kind, huge stones, crazy bathrooms, hancrafted woodwork...kitchy, pink, flamboyant. All the way back to as classy as the 60s ever got. Great food
Well kept old place.
I had no idea what to expect when I stopped by this place after seeing it from the highway. I did not stay in one of the rooms, but the place quite unique and not at all what I expected, in a good way. Every part of this place is really nice, even to just stop by and walk around. Myirlfriend can't wait to come back to stay in one of the rooms either.
(Translated by Google) Excellent and eccentric hotel located at the entrance to San Luis Obispo, CA. The restaurant stands out for its cakes, as it receives a notable number of tourists and clients in order to buy cakes for weddings, celebrations or to taste them. The local cake is recommended. Decoration is another of its strong points, since very particular colors and shapes are used. (Original) Excelente y excéntrico hotel ubicado en el ingreso a San Luis Obispo, CA.

Great service. Wonderfully place
I love working at the Madonna Inn! As a wedding photographer, it's important to have a venue with accommodating staff and that's easy to communicate and work with on the wedding day. Madonna Inn is phenomenal, their food is great and I love enjoying their famous pink champagne cake that couples get as their wedding cake. Such an awesome venue for any wedding or event!
An old faithful but showing its age a little bit tired around the edges
eautiful rooms. Amazing staff. This was an all around great experience. We stayed in room 120 which was themed after Sir Walter Raleigh. There was a soaking tub which was warm and comfortable the beds were amazing to sleep in and their pool was heated and beautifully set. The hot tub was relaxing and the bar was as outstanding.
(Translated by Google) Worth seeing very pink (Original) Sehenswert sehr Rosa
Beautiful place to go stay or eat at.
Very nice old style Dining
The views are beautiful and the room we stayed in Room 129 was quaint. The help however leaves something to be desired. The waitress at the restaurant brought the wrong dinner and then disappeared so we ended up eating it. The bartender at the bar forgot to get our bar snacks. The whole place was slow and in some cases they just simply forgot to do things like bring the Continental breakfast. The outlets in the room didn't work and the door rattled from the wind all night. The TV was tiny and actually not much bigger than my laptop. The mini fridge made a horrible racket all night and I could hear the woman in the next room coughing all night.
Coffee shop kitsch
You got to check out this place
Totally quirky and super fun stay
It's an amazing place. Each room is beautiful and unique. Kind of pricey, but the whole experience is worth it with the right people.
Quaint hotel north of LA. Awesome hot pool and food in restaurant
Great place for breakfast or lunch
This place is amazing. I have to say that my reason for coming here was to do some phone work but I had a chance to see alot of the madonna inn. Staff here are very helpful and nice. The place is very clean. I hope to someday stay here as a guest. But in the mean time if you're ever in San Luis Obispo stop by and just walk around. It's beautiful Thanks.
Overpriced and overrated.
This place is a trip. The room was great and the heated pool was fantastic on a chilly evening. Definitely eat breakfast there. Yum
Build in the 50's, Mondonna converted her family home into several amazing tourist attrachtion. Words cannot discibe this place. Over the top expressive decor through this large ranch. 218 themed rooms l, that are all top notch. It's like you step back in time. All the original art, mirrors, furniture stain glass, wood sculptures. This place rivals any vintage old school Las Vegas Casino + some. Visit for the cafe for lunch or breakfast, or dine in one of the diamond tucked pink booths and have a grade A steak. This is a must see. Mind blowing!
The cakes were gorgeous, but very bland. Decor is awesome, and great dance floor.
A wonderful place for a banquet
actually not worth the instagram
A little piece of history. Very fun.
Wow. Every inch of this place is detailed with something fancy. It is a unique California Jewel of over the top Fantasy and Folly.
For the Madonna Inn steakhouse. It was okay. The food was either too salty or too bland. The steak was an excellent cut, and cooked well, but not enough seasonings on the meat. The venue was a bit uncomfortable... the chairs especially had springs that I could feel when sitting. The ambiance has an old vibe. Might be too dated for some.
Meal was nothing to write home about. Ham with cherry glaze, some cooked vegetables, and a salad for just less than $20.
Fun place for photos and a unique stay. Near downtown SLO and easy to access all the local tourist spots.
Interesting room concepts.
Enjoyed staying here, their pool is a favorite of mine. It's an iconic place to visit.
Amaya Becvar W.
A Central Coast icon. We're so lucky this place is right in our backyard!
It was beautiful, but the food was just...ok.
Got my forest chocolate cake!!
Just went inside. It was amazing
Gotta see everything here. Walk around and explore. Marvelous bathrooms.
Fantastic ???????? Thank you. Ethan & Ashley awesome service. Food was excellent!!! Everybody was helpful . I'll be back . Thank you.
What a fun and funky place. Can't wait to come back!
They gave me a balloon on my birthday and it made my day ???? Their cake is sooo good ????
Loved it old world comfort Gotti and wonderful my favorite eggs Benedict potatoes .????????????????????
The food wasn't very good and fairly pricey. This place is truly overated.
My husband and I been here many times, but this was our first time staying here. We stayed in the Pioneer Room, it was like stepping back in time. Lol Way before our time.... I love Hunter Green carpet, but when it is the original carpet from the 60's it is time to replace it!! It did smell. ???? They should replace the Hunter Green Carpet with NEW Hunter Green Carpet. Other than that, it is a beautiful place and very fun!! Love the original brass salt and pepper shakers. Very cool!! Loved how green it was this time of year!! ???? Loved the pool!! Very beautiful!!
LOVE staying here. We live in SLO, so we wait for a local deal or a special occasion and book a new room every time. My kids love it, the rooms are spacious for a family of 4 and the pool is like a dream. The pool bar is so nice to have, and we always have the same pool bartender/server. I HAVE to figure out her name, I would love to do a shout-out to her. She's super patient, I'm sure she gets quite the clientele visiting the pool on a daily basis, and she just does such a great job with her hospitality. We love the hotel and it's pool area, the restaurants...not as much. The pink champagne cake is dry and their food is overpriced for low quality, that's the biggest bummer. But the ambiance and nostalgia is what you're paying for and we certainly keep returning.
The most unique hotel I guess !

Venetian room, very good
It is a fun and quirky place worth a visit. The restaurants have some interesting decadent desserts and my son really loved the pool (really warm so we were swimming on Thanksgiving).
The food was wonderful. The cakes and pies are to die for.the atmosphere was over the top.
The best food and service
There were 4 of us and we all did the 3 for $30 dinner at the steak house. The food was great, but our server needed training. She brought our desserts and tried to placed them on the table before we were done with dinner. The table was hardly big enough for our dinner and bread dishes alone. We all thought that was weird!!!
Interesting and Swiss roots. Cake was great, service friendly.
If you like the weirder , offbeat , or vintage this is a stop you shouldn’t miss. Themed rooms. Extravagant decor . Classic dining experience complete with amazing cakes ... don’t miss if you are on a road trip .
Funky place, fun bar.
We had great dessert there
So fun and cute!
My wife loves this place. You wont find another with such unique style, themed rooms, and plenty of onsite activities! Restaurants are great also!
The Madonna and was very interesting place, definitely something you should go see but it's more of a tourist attraction. I would say the food is good but it's plain to keep everyone happy. However, the atmosphere of the establishment was wonderful your eyes where never disappointed no matter what direction you looked and they have bikes to rent with a riding/walking trail of there enormously large land. I would love to go back and stay for a night it will be like no experience you have ever had.
Loved this place, service excellent, Food Delish
Talk about a fun place to stay. Loved our room and the dining room is outrageous with all the pink.
The hotel was suggested to me a few years ago and I was intrigued by it's themed rooms. I appreciate the detail to the degree of pink the hotel has adorned about it's premises. The staff throughout the hotel have been accommodating, offering suggestions om wine tastings about the area. 5/7 would stay again.
Great place too stay
This place is weird. Stuck in a time whorp. The men's bathroom is worth checking out for sure. The highlight of the place.
Great food and fantastic service. Alfredo is the man ????
Madonna Inn is one if those unique California t ok tourist sites. We had breakfast and the waiter was very accommodating about splitting a meal. Good food and service
We recently just stayed in the Daisy Mae room. For what we paid. We were not happy what so ever. When you walk it just smelled like mildew. There was exposed electrical. Looked like one of windows was broken and just replaced with piece of board. Took a shower and left water all over and made the floor extremely slippery. I hit my head on a low bar that was hung as closet. Bed didn't even have fitted sheets. Bed was old and uncomfortable.
It’s like Disney Land for adults, kind of. My wife and I can’t get enough or say enough good things about this place. It’s so fun, so accommodating, everyone is incredibly friendly and welcoming- we just love it! If you’re there or near by on a Monday night, I recommend grabbing a drink from the bar and watching the Rugcutters dance the night away. Very fun!
Beautiful Inn. They service was outstanding. Food is great. Room are fun and unique to experience. Themed rooms available to choose from. Wonderful getaway. Has a spa and other fun things to choose from
5 time there not fun.
Room was fun, neat property... bar was small and sub par.

Always a great time. We went on a night when the band was playing which made for a lively atmosphere.
I love Madonna in we went there and had breakfast the food was great and the surroundings were beautiful
Beautiful and lovely place

There is no place better for a lovely kitsch experience. I mean this globally, having been to five continents.
Kitch Rock n roll ,but I like it
Good food, amazing cakes, great service!
Uniquely one of the best places to vacation. Themed rooms that will entice and excite you. Great for couples and families. You must see it to believe it! Service is good,the front desk is helpful. From sitting by the pool, to horseback riding,this place is one of a kind!
If you are not hungry please tasty the cake of the house delicious

Quirky and Fabulous. The Monte Cristo is the best breakfast ever.
Dated , but really nice people. Everything needs to be deep cleaned
We were VERY surprised at the quirky decor and ambiance of this fascinating inn. Every room is different and ours was like no room we've ever stayed in - we loved it! The room, though decorated in a most unique manner, was very comfortable with good amenities. Very clean. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The Steakhouse and cafe were very good! We highly recommend this experience!
Food and service was good as usual. Normally a bit too pricey for me, but restaurant month is a great time to check it out.
Great place you gotta see the waterfall in mens bathroom!
Its a nice stop to look at how pretty it is inside it. The restrooms downstairs are cool the ladies room is very pretty. The mens restroom was cool too i went in there because i heard theres a urinal waterfall.
Great bar and restaurants. Hotel rooms are awesome just wish they would update!
We stopped to explore the wine cellar and the grounds. They have a great area for events. I loved the flowers.
No other place like it. A bit on the touristy side, but so very kitschy and cool.
Always fun to visit this long time institution. The cafe is great for brunch. The restaurant has great entrees. I live locally.. but there are always distant tourists. The hotel has character. Stayed here for my honeymoon. It's a local institution. Try at least once.
The themes rooms are interesting. Be careful which one you pick. It might be a shock. The food in the Cafe is terrible. There are other eateries near by. It was raining when we were there. That's why we ate at the Cafe.
Went there for desserts it was was great!
Went here for breakfast delicious food in a fun environment. The wait staff was pretty quick and friendly. Definitely somewhere I would come back to.
Such a fun experience. I've driven past the hotel so many times and it was always a place I wanted to stay "someday." Finally had a reason to stay to break up the drive coming back to SF from LA. The hotel has 110 rooms, each decorated with its own theme. It took a while when booking to decide which room we wanted, which is all part of the fun! In the end we decided to book the last "stone" room available: Bridal Falls. If one of the stone rooms is available, definitely recommend you book it -- these are the rooms the hotel is most famous for, and they're about $100/night more expensive than other rooms but worth it because really how often will you stay here? Might as well do it right and get the full experience. The stone rooms all have their signature waterfall shower, and are even more over the top kitsch interior decorations. Recommend visiting the pool, which is heated year round and has two hot tubs. There are also amazing views from the pool. We had dinner at the gold rush steakhouse as well. The food is just ok and a bit on the pricey side, but let's be honest you're going for the atmosphere. Ask for a booth, and save room for a slice of cake for dessert! Overall, we had a really great stay at the Madonna Inn, and I would recommend it as a fun stopover on a road trip!
Food and service excellent!
Super place !!! Must Visit !!! Just wow !!!
What a magical place! My wife have spent many anniversaries here and try to always stay in a different room. It is the only hotel where it might be "Normal" to find people walking around during check in times peeking into the windows of other rooms. The rooms are all awesome!
The Austrian Suite was incredible. Views were amazing and service was impeccable.
I LOVE this place and their bakery is my absolute favorite. The service in the restaurant could be better but the food makes up for it I guess.
Excellent steak dinners
Been going here for years!!!! Love love love this place!!!!
We stayed in the Misty Cave room. This place is amazing! Our room had real rock walls, a rock shower and gold foil wallpaper. Staff was amazing. This place needs to be on everyone's bucket list.
Great Cafe! It's Pink!!!
Love the bakery, friendly service and great theme.
All the rooms are unique. Filled with cliche, garish colors, flourishes, and detail. If you love the odd, want to engage with the interesting, explore the unique, this place is your you.
Josh was our waiter and he was very sweet. The atmosphere was amazing. Food was great. Drinks were good but a little pricey.
Breakfast at Copper Cafe was excellent, as usual. Fluffy delicious eggs; and the best cup of coffee, sour dough toast, and apricot preserves (sweet golden ambrosia) that you can find in the whole county... actually, the best I've had in 7 states.
So crazy! The urnials were insane. The staff was very helpful.
The Madonna Inn is the better than you think. You couldn't possibly decorate like this.
The indoor Christmas decorations were phenomenal and covered every visible surface. We ordered a slice of the pink champagne cake which was so large it fed five of us and had a great cake and cream textures

Must try the dessert.
Always wonderful, but at Christmas it is magical!
Huge slides of cake and interesting decor. Must visit the men's bathroom.
The backery would not sell me a cake.
more creepy than anything ( animatronic santa) might as well get the real thing i guess you know what you're infor, the rep precedes you stillnah
Loved this place but we came across some very snooty people. The employees were all very nice. Very beautiful decorations. We will visit again after the Hidays for lunch or dinner.
Ate lunch at the bar while passing thru town. The bartender was delightful and the food was pretty good. The decór is absolutely worth seeing.
This place is not only iconic, the atmosphere is homey and friendly.
Beautiful Christmas decorations and the food was delicious. Everyone who worked there was really sweet and helpful.
Thank the Gods for Cake
I took my wife there for our 2 year anniversary. The service was great! Our food was delicious, we had prime rib with lobster tail and some veggies. The bread they serve before your meal was also delicious and had a good variety. The only downfall to our experience was that the band was experiencing bad feedback through the sound system (screeching) but that's situational. We enjoyed the experience over all!
Uniquely decorated rooms, offering different experiences. The Yahoo room has a cart as the bed frame. The restaurant was pretty good - decent steak and good service
Got food poisoning, skip the cake.
It is a complete different experience of what I am normally used to. Pleasant surprise indeed, good food and long waits, probably because of the Holiday.
Fabulous darling! It’s everything you think it will be and a little more. I was concerned it may not be very clean/tidy due to the age but it was immaculate!
Great food, interesting place, would come back for sure
Unique hotel with over the top decorations and glitz.
Worth the stop for lunch to enjoy the eclectic style!
One of my favorites.
(Translated by Google) Place of great tradition !!!!! Very kitch !!!! (Original) Lugar de gran tradición!!!!! Muy kitch!!!!
Awesome atmosphere and food
Our Christmas celebration at the was amazing. The food was excellent and delicious. The atmosphere made our Christmas special. This is the beginning of our family tradition for the Marquez's and Nieman's. Mahalo! Thank you!
Had breakfast in the cafe. Excellent food every time . Visited all the gift shops and found some good deals. Susan in the gift shop downstairs is always so helpful.
The service was fast and efficient and the decorations looked nice. Salads were nothing special but the steak was delicious. I also wish they could draw out their parking spaces so there wouldn't be so much wasted space between cars.
Nice rooms and very clean. We did have a light bulb that was broken and few beverages from the previous guests were left in the fridge. Those weren't an issue for me, but there's a door that connects one room with the adjacent room, and the walls were so thin that I could hear their conversation and even their plastic bags. Other than that, the rooms are well maintained, and there's a Tesla Supercharger stations right next door. Walking distance to Denny's, IHOP, etc.
The restaurant has fallen on hard times, attempting to revel in past glories. The pink seats are brownish, the dining room is dark (hiding dinginess), and the decorations are so so. The sad thing is that they are still very busy, because the hotel is a staple for SLO. Since they are busy, they have no incentive to clean up or modernize.
Quirky hotel in a beautiful location
like 90$ for two people on Christmas eve to get nice dinners 280 for five south a bottle of wine and two desserts
Interesting - lots of eye candies. Things, designs, decorations are elaborate. A lot of pink things. Gift shop - sells a lot of clothes and accessories. They look like clothes and trinkets my mom wore in the 70s when she was in her 40s. Food - ok. Not outstanding.
Fun place. Average Food
The food was prepared perfectly and the service was excellent! Our server was very friendly and did a great job! Would highly recommend this place.
Great fun place, great food, visit is a must
loved it very beautiful and historic
This is a must see place. Try the champagne cake. Rent the caveman room.
Awesome old relec
