Living off its past.

Madonna Inn
Fantastic quirky hotel
Very unusual quirky hotel. Not cheap, but enjoyable experience. Lovely pool area, friendly & helpful staff, didn't eat in the steak house however was a little disappointed with the quality of food from the bar menu. Breakfast was good though. About a mile from downtown SLO which has a good number of bars, restaurants etc.
