    Quirky and fun (as advertised)

    Checked the box by finally staying at the iconic Madonna Inn. Everything was as expected, however be aware that there is not a refrigerator or microwave in the room

    Wedding weekend

    Stay overall good , the bartender was rude when we walked in and we have never been there before. I asked if we seat ourselves or????and he seemed annoyed and told me yes seat your self 😒not impressed from the get go , my daughter had her wedding the next day and it was beautiful and the food was good so that made up for it. Yummy cake and I had a cinnamon roll that morning also very good 😊 THEN the woman in the gift shop told me I fit the description of someone that had issues with paying my dinner bill and that was offensive , as I just got there and had an appetizer in the bar, crazy 😛 and my husband was still there having drinks , all a misunderstanding I guess. It’s an iconic place that my daughter chose to have her wedding so we enjoyed the moment.

    The best inn we have ever stayed

    My family and I loved the Madonna inn! We will definitely make this a yearly stay. Our favorite part of was the pool.

    A must visit but it’s not fancy. Needs updating.

    I’ve loved this place for decades. However, the rooms are showing their age and it in a good way. Several lightbulbs were burned out. The carpet was dirty. It was dark and damp in the room. It needs some serious TLC. The restaurant and bar was fabulous as always.

    We love Madonna Inn. We stay here a few times a year. This trip was a babymoon/anniversary trip so it was just my husband and I. We stayed in room 115. We definitely will never choose that room again. We were right next to the staff break room and could hear entire conversations. They start early so we were woken up by it. We could also hear everything from the room to the left of us. It was a bummer and not peaceful. Other than that Madonna Inn is always a pleasure.

    Fun place full of interesting decor. We've stopped a few times for dessert on our way home from the beach the pink champagne cake is a must! This week we booked a night for my wife's birthday because she just loves it here. We ate in the dining room it was such a treat and they make a big deal of special occasions. Our server was amazing she was super friendly and the food was excellent. The rooms are so uniquely decorated it was fun picking which one was best for us. The bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in and the view from the room was AMAZING! However that being said the walls are paper thin. Either that or our neighbors we're extraordinarily loud. We heard almost every conversation. If you're reading this and you're the lady who's electric toothbrush turned itself on during your travel and killed the battery. I'm sure it's not quite the catastrophe you thought it was at 7am when I was woken up to the sounds of you telling your family about it. Minus the loud neighbors this was a perfect trip and we'll be back with ear plugs next time!
