I ate lunch at the Madonna inn once, 30 years ago. The place has stuck in my mind ever since. So when a road trip took us through San Luis Obispo, there's no way I was going to miss staying there.
I was traveling with my two kids. Since it was just one adult, the rooms were cheaper than usual ($173). We were in the Gypsie Rock room, one of the rooms with a rock waterfall shower. Though honestly, I'd skip the rock waterfall shower next time; it splashed all over the bathroom floor and was a bit hard (like standing under a rain gutter). But the whole room experience was a ton of fun. My daughter particularly loved rock climing on the walls.
I made my kids eat dinner with me at the steak house (in spite of no kids menu; they split a meal). They now understand kitzch and agreed that while pricy, it was a hoot to eat there. And we all loved the champagne cake dessert. A stop in the restrooms before gonig back to our room confused my son until he saw the famous waterfall urinal.
Our breakfast in the coffee shop rounded out our "Madonna Inn experience". The coffee shop does have a kids menu, and prices are reasonable.
