Well, put on your most daring fuchsia-colored outfit and check into Cali’s iconic Madonna Inn, nestled in lovely San Luis Obispo, California—along the state’s picturesque Central Coast. The Inn is California kitsch at it’s very best. Featured in many shows and music videos (including ABC’s The Bachelor) and located right off the 101, this quirky hotel has been a road tripping fave since the 1950s. Check in to any of the 110 whimsical rooms, and you’ll find that each is uniquely designed with their own inspirational décor. Ever wondered what it might be like to stay in a room that looks like a cave? Or a room with a waterfall and a rock shower? Or perhaps you’re looking to sleep in a bed that’s decorated in patchwork prints? This is the hotel for you. Or perhaps stay with a group of friends and double your fun as you can check out numerous suites.
The fun isn’t limited to the room in which you hang your hat and wheel in your suitcase though! A night out at the celebrated Gold House Steakhouse – famous for its decadent pink champagne cake – is an absolute MUST. The steaks are delicious too! And another bonus: the hand-carved marble railings come from nearby Hearst Castle, the exquisite home of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst.
The Copper Café is their go-to restaurant for breakfast and lunch—and more fun décor. Savor the vintage copper tables and elaborate wood carvings and let the plush red leather seats take you back to a retro era. And perhaps snag a few Instagram-worthy pics too!
Other charmingly quirky resort amenities include pink basketball courts and pink street lamps. You can also rent a pink bike to explore San Luis Obispo at your own pace or enjoy a trail ride on one of the hotel’s horses. Because every hotel should have horses.
