Fodor's Expert Review Madonna Inn

100 Madonna Rd., San Luis Obispo, California, 93405, USA Fodor's Choice

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

PROS

  • fun, one-of-a-kind experience
  • infinity pool, exercise room, and day spa
  • each room has its own distinct identity, for example, Safari Room

CONS

  • rooms vary widely
  • must appreciate kitsch
  • no elevator
