Fodor's Review

From its rococo bathrooms to its pink-on-pink froufrou steak house, the Madonna Inn is fabulous or tacky, depending on your taste. In several faux-Swiss buildings arrayed on a hillside, rooms are each unique, to say the least: Rock Bottom is all stone; the Safari Room is decked out in animal skins. A property-wide renovation in 2008 updated baths (about half the rooms have auto-bidets) and interiors and added an infinity pool, exercise room, and day spa. A walking/bike

path leads from the hotel to downtown San Luis Obispo, about a mile away.
