Madonna Inn

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My family loves staying here. The different rooms make it so unique and exciting. The steak house is terrific it's a must if you stay at this hotel. The rooms are very clean and the beds are always comfortable. The pool area is awesome and the pool is heated!

Captains Bridge room very very dark.Not enough electrical sockets. Difficult to use CPAP machine and charge phones. The food was excellent. The pool was beautiful.

This place is magical. Our second time staying here and our 3rd time visiting. I think this will remain our go-to “Escape from Los Angeles” whenever we need a place for a quick getaway/adventure!

But upon closer inspection the furniture is extremely worn out, the room reeked of mildew.

Staff was incredible. Loved our fun too...cabin still. Pool, jacuzzis, and pool bar were great. The yummiest cake ever!!! Everything was wonderful. I can’t wait to come back!!!!

Lovely nook in the heart of Central Coast California, Madonna Inn never disappoints with it's delightfully decorated rooms and old western charm. Love coming here to get a unique experience with my lady friend and will continue to come back with any and all other lady friends ;)

The friendly staff makes you feel welcome, they give us an excellent orientation how to get around the town. Definitely will come back again.

Since arrival we had a very creepy vibe there, so much that we drove another 4 hours to LA and forfeited our money even after we had checked in. Can't say it was dirty can't say there was anything wrong but just a super bad vibe.

We decided to upgrade to a suite as we had 4 adults. We stay in the hound room which was nice but only had one bathroom. The fireplace in room was super nice and we kept it on all night as it was chilly. We used the pool and spa which is super beautiful. They had a bar and gift shop at the pool area. They only had 2 robes and should have provided 2 more. The other bedroom is upstairs. There is a ralphs across the street so you can get wine and beer for your room if you so desire and they did have a fridge. They were updating their system and it took a bit to check out and the guy checking us in didnt seem to really know what he was doing.

Older hotel but it seems to be well maintained. The rooms are all different themes. Really clean rooms. A lot of amenities.

The room was a very creepy and scary "cave room" All the Furniture was very old. It had an alligator skin sofa and table. I did not want to be in this room!

Semi-local to the area and always saw but never experienced the lodging until the occasion of our wedding anniversary (30+ years). Memorable for its one of a kind rooms. Conveniently located near shopping centers for the little needs, and plenty of dining options locally if you tire of the décor.

Booked on orbitz, didn't know rooms were themed. Would have like to make a selection. Many steps, had top floor. Can be difficult if you have bad knees. Over all location great

if you want a romantic get away this is for you. If you are looking for a resort- they do offer Spa, heated pool and etc but a bit pricey if you ask me. Our plan was to stay over night before going to Hearst Castle. maybe it was the time of year we went, late May so lots of May Grey and not really wanting to go to a pool when its cold in the evening and then WALK in the dark. The room was uniquely decorated however, I did not think it would be so small and we could hear the wind howling (we were on the 4th floor facing North) right next to Mountains. Rooms are small

It was perfectly magical, beginning our honeymoon here was a dream come true. We felt like royalty the entire time.
