I had a few questions and comments on MADONNA INN, in San Luis Obispo. An amazing place. The rooms are not your cookie cutter all look the same. Each and every 110 rooms have it's own unique decor. Located just south of the town off Highway 101. Take the exit "Madonna Road".
The INN opened with just tewelve rooms on December 24, 1958 by Alex Madonna. The large rocks that the Inn is largely built of came from the the surrounding acres of the property. Some of the rocks exceed 200 tons. Mr. Madonna spared no expense in the construction. The hand carved marble balustrade in the Gold Rush dining room came from Hearst Castle. Artisan wood carvers, carved the woodwork.
Dining at the INN is magical. Some say the colors are garish, I guess it is a matter of opinion. No matter, the food will not disappoint.. Madonna Inn Copper Cafe is open from 7am to 10pm daily. I enjoy the Buckwheat pancakes for breakfast! The menu offers a variety of choices, Eggs Benedict, and omelettes to tease your palate. And don't overlook the bakery! Simply fantastic, both in the quality and the decorations.
So grab a pastry for the road. Enjoy!
Dinner: ALEX MADONNA'S GOLD RUSH STEAK HOUSE. Reservations suggested. This is an experience not to be missed. Appetizers ranging from Cheese and Fig Costini locally handmade Swiss & Linguica Sausage and more. Entrees: include: Swordfish Steak, Atlantic Salmon, French Filet Mignon, should you wish surf and turf - Filet Moignon and Atlantic lobster. My o My I sit here salivating thinking of it!
Treat yourself to a deliteful night in one of the rooms; but certainly have a meal at MADONNA INN.
