Unique Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 12, 2006

We stayed for two nights in the Madonna Inn in June 2002 .it was recomended to us via an enquiry I posted looking for accomodation in that area .After doing some research on their extensive website we decided it sounded like a very unique hotel.We were not wrong each room has an individual theme and are decorated and furnished throughout to reflect this.There is even a rock room that looks just like a cave ,with the shower just like a waterfall .We opted for the Matterhorn Room which is very Swiss looking and has a lovely view out of the patio windows which open on to a balcony.If you are looking for a different experience from the normal hotel room this is the place for you.

Unique Quality: Each of the 109 rooms have a unique theme .The hotel itself is extensive with a lovely tea room called the Copper Cafe.Also there is a great bakery that has a wonderful selection of pastries and cakes.

Directions: Off Highway 101 Madonna Road exit

We only passed through San Luis Obispo and made a short stop for coffee, etc. We regretted that because there was more than enough to see besides the mission post, like the County Historical Museum, in which the history of San Luis Obispo is told. Another place of interest is the Madonna Inn.

This hotel offers meals and accomodates to everybody who wants to experience how far kitsch can go. The waterfall which cleans the urinal of the coffeeshop is only a foretaste. There are about 100 rooms, each with a theme of their own.

Theme Hotel Rooms...No 2 Rooms Alike

With 109 rooms with names like, "Bridal Veil Falls, The Kona Rock, Yosemite Rock, Victorian Gardens and Paris Violets" no wonder The Madonna Inn has been a periennial favorite among honeymooners, people celebrating special occasions and just plain curious folk who want to see what all the talk is about.

We had a sorority birthday gathering in the "Pick and Shovel Room." It boasts a red leather sofa which is over 31 feet long! The room can sleep 9-11 comfortably. There is a bedroom downstairs and 2 upstairs. There is even a small kitchenette.

The cost split between 11 people made a 2 night stay quite affordable.

Unique Quality: Each room is decorated in a different theme. The Rock rooms are usually sold out 6 months to a year in advance.

Don't miss the nortorius men's bathroom downstairs in the restaurant. The urinal is actually a waterfall. It is not unusal to see a line of women waiting to get in to the MEN'S bathroom.

One of the most famous area of the hotel is the urinal. Some guide books advice to visit it as an attraction.
There is a water fall when you advance.
Sorry, forbiden for ladies.

In a such hotel devoted to laugh, it is a pity to see the staff is not friendly. May be a high dose is laugh is detrimental for health...

Our stay in this hotel was the main purpose of our stop in San Luis Obispo.
It seems to have been built by Disney for an amusement park.
All the rooms have their own style and are over-ornated. The most known ones are the cave room of which walls are like rock and the Daisy room which is completly pink.
The hotel website gives a view of each room and you can buy postcards of your favorite rooms.

Unique Quality: For 163$ (tax include) we stayd in the Starlite Room, the blue room.
It was large and clean, at the 3rd floor without elevator.
One of its main features is the chrystal chandelier at the ceiling.

Directions: South of the city. On Hwy 101 take exit Madonna Road

Madonna Inn

by written on August 24, 2002

Unique Quality: This hotel of 109 unique theme rooms is like no other hotel that I know of. As you drive along highway 101 its large pink sign will catch your eye and draw you in. This is a regular stop for me because of the bathroom and I am told that the guest rooms are just as impressive (I have only stayed in one myself). Some of their more popular rooms book up months in advance.
