Mobile Madonna Inn bookings.

Thinking ahead for our west coast trip for 2021 & looking to stay at the Madonna inn. How far in advance do you need to book & which are your favourite rooms? Thanks!

We have generally booked at least 8 months out.

We had the Chinese Paper Room last time and liked it.

We have the San Francisco room this time and it is very red.

I think that you will find that the standard rooms are pretty much identical in generous size, but with wildly over the top decor. They all seem to have two bays separated by a 'narrowing' with beds in each of those bays.. A bit like 1970's houses with a lounge and then a dining area beyond.

The rooms are easily researched. Last time we stayed for a single night. We liked the place so much that this Easter we are staying 3 nights and using it as a base to explore from.

Thanks for your reply.
Ive gone on to their website & surprised I can book so far in advance for next July! All I need to do is work out what date well be arriving there as weve no real plan what way round to do our trip yet. We want to include Seattle, SF & then drive the coast. Weve both decided that we want a waterfall shower in the room so at least that narrows it down a wee bit lol!
I hope you have a splendid time & I cant wait to read all about it as it sounds very similar to the trip we want to do next year for our 25th anniversary 😊

Be aware in your planning that San Luis Obispo has an airport just 3 miles from the Madonna inn.

This may assist in your planning if you dont intend going the further, considerable distance onwards to LAX or dont fancy driving back up the way you came.

We are in to SFO and then a meander down to S L Obispo. We are then flying out and up to Seattle before driving from there up to Vancouver and home.

This airport opens up all sorts of possibilities.. like visiting gorgeous San Diego whilst avoiding LA.

Yes there are directs. United are the main carrier. We have a 1 and a bit layover in SFO. this reduced our 4 tickets by around 100pp, as I remember.

At the moment, an average indirect is 73 and a direct 198pp

There are an awful lot of other regional airports in the United States and they have opened my eyes to other possibilities in many other areas.

Our best Florida vacation ever was Pensacola- Destin- Tampa- Orlando-Daytona Beach.
Routing into Pensacola and out of Daytona was through Atlanta.

You are so kind. I had a lot of fun writing that trippie! (I have thus far written my California one and also a Boston, NY, Dayton, Cincinatti, Orlando, Naples MIA one that is hopefully in a similar vein. I just dont know how to link them to my signature... do I have to join on subscription?
