We had lunch here while on our family vacation. There were 10 of us but they got us right in which was very nice. They have a good variety of meals. I had a lunch chefs salad which was very good. The rest of the family were pleased with their meals. They also have kids meals. After our lunch, we...

We had never been here before, and I am really glad we stayed here. The front desk staff were very friendly, and we loved our room. We stayed in the Sky Room which is one of the few rooms at the back of the main building. It had a king bed on the first level, and it had a double...

I just stayed here on Monday and Tuesday with 12 teachers. We wanted all of the pink glam to help celebrate two of our friends who had finished breast cancer treatments. When I called to make a reservation, I gave my reason for the stay and asked if there was any kind of local discount. The person on the phone...

Wow! If you don't like this place I think you are not a fun person. Ok I said it! I honestly don't get any of these reviewers saying about the horrible gaudy pinkness of it all. Didn't they know that to begin with? Anyway I absolutely love this hotel and wish I had stayed more that 1 night. It was...

A lovely and unique hotel set in beautiful countryside, although a shame about the traffic noise from the highway, but unless you have your bedroom windows open, you don't hear the traffic. We stayed in the Indian room which was clean and pleasant. Rather a shame though that it was difficult to sit up in bed with no headboard and...

We stopped here on the recommendation of friends during our road trip from San Diego to San Francisco. The rooms can be pretty pricey but we stayed in ' Marguerite' which was a comfy blue floral intense space. For our rate, called the 'hike and stay' meant wee also got free pink sigg style water bottles in addition to the...

Great experience from check in to check out. Staff was amazing and even gave one of the Trip Advisor Kudo pins to the receptionist. Stayed in Swiss Rock. Very "red"...Rock shower was fun. Rooms are quiet, beds are very comfortable. Plenty of outlets for the electronic recharging. Convenient to the town. Ate at the cafe in the morning which had...

My husband and I recently spent the night at the Madonna Inn for our anniversary, and really enjoyed our stay! We selected the "Kona Rock" room. Check-in was fast (we were given cookies as we left!), and we were greeted in the room by a complimentary bottle of champagne for our celebration. Bed was comfy. Decor was everything we were...

Recommended to stay at this hotel by a friend, and now I know why. Easy to find, lots of signs on highway. Checking in was easy, but not knowing any of the background history and relevant hotel knowledge, receptionist was very dry and information was almost squeezed out of her, with 3-5 questions. But she was still informative, though not...
