Madonna Inn | San Luis Obispo, California

It is hard to define the Madonna Inn on California’s golden central coast, other than to say it is “unique.”  Rooms in the sprawling “bucket list” destination range from gaudy to grand, including the Madonna Suite with its haute-pink decor and native rock waterfall shower, to the Caveman, a rustic den of solid rock, animal prints, stone pond and stone-age clubs. With more than 100 whimsical guest rooms to dazzle the most fertile imaginations, the Madonna Inn is worth the adventure—and even offers horseback riding in the hills behind this iconic California conclave.
