Madonna Inn


There is something about February that always brings out all my love of pink! Perhaps it is Valentines or perhaps its the leftover teenager obsessed with Legally Blonde or maybe it is just the anticipation of Spring! Either way I love every hue and there is nothing that makes me think pink quite like the Madonna Inn.



Andrew & I road tripped in California from San Francisco to L.A. for our 10th wedding anniversary. I added this hotel to my bucket list after I had seen Amber Fillerup Clark ( blog about her visit several years ago, never thinking I would get to visit anytime soon! It was a dream & I was over the top excited when we booked a stay the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, California. Everything about this place is from a dream! All 110 rooms are a different unique theme & colour, their dining room is a fuchsia paradise & their cake… oh man, their cake is to die for!


We spent our only night in Room 182 – the Tall & Short Room. So many hues of pink, gold & floral details, a private outdoor balcony & a bathroom almost too pretty to use, it did not disappoint! We enjoyed late night slice of Pink Champagne cake & coffee, as well as breakfast the following morning, in the copper cafe. Their servers were so friendly & even offered a complimentary slice of chocolate cake for our anniversary when we left.




There is a room for every taste & personality, you’re invited to change rooms each night you stay to sample as many as you can. We were only able to spend one night, so I knew I had to stay in the pinkest room available! but I dream of staying in so many others & hope we can visit again soon!!
