Madonna Inn

San Luis Obispo, California

In 1958, long before cute little inns with themed rooms sprang up across the West, Alex and Phyllis Madonna created this 108-room hotel with—yes—108 unique rooms. Want to sleep in a bed made from a big-wheeled wagon? Take showers in rock grottoes? Assault your eyes with the most incredible variety of colors, patterns, and furniture styles, pure whimsy, and a big helping of kitsch? It’s all here. Our favorite? The boulder-rich Old World suite. One down, 107 to go.
