    Sweet Jesus! It's like an I Spy book came to life as some cheap hotel decorated by the Mad Hatter on LSD!

    i love it! it's gloriously tacky and hilarious.
    it reminds me of a place i stayed in honfleur (normandy) called l'hôtel la diligence. they've also got a weird retro horse-drawn carriage theme going throughout the place and our room was the kitschest thing i ever saw - full of random porcelain figures of gnomes, ladies in long dresses, animals, etc. not to mention tons of ornate dark wood, flowered wallpaper, and weirdness. it was awesome, like an old lady's house on acid.

    I live in San Luis Obispo and the Madonna Inn is actually pretty cool, in a kitchy way. We used to go there for cocktails in college just for shits & giggles. I'll have to find some pics of the Madonna Steakhouse and the Copper Cafe, both at the Inn. Talk about a pink overload! Apparently the man who built the place, Alex Madonna was a HUGE fan of pink, lol. Also, the men's bathroom in the cocktail lounge has a urinal that is a rock waterfall! I snuck in once to check it out, heh.

    I was seriously staring at each room thinking which one was my favorite. Some of those carpets are left over runs from casino's. They really are brilliantly done. The pictures should show a window in each one because they seem claustrophobic without it.

    Wish we could see the bathroom in this one.

    I think this hotel was featured during that ridiculous show 'Real Chance of Love' on VH1. I hate that I know this too.

    I say they bought it all from a close-out sale of Nevada's Best Cathouses.

    I think this one is a step up from the Gobbler, because here and there you can see a piece of furniture that is actually not that bad on it's own.

    The individual decor schemes are horrors, but the Gobbler is just so totally and completely tacky in such a complete single-themed way that I think it is worse..or better actually since I have grown to love the Gobbler and mourn it's demise.

    They should def. keep this thing up-these things can become landmarks..kind of like cult films.

    Each room has its own charm and je ne sais quois - as well as looking like the perfect breeding ground for hordes of bedbugs.

    Of all of them I like this room the best. Take away the bedspread... I need help.

    Alot of these rooms are damn big rooms too!

    You could take these furnishings to any regular American town and put them up for sale..and everything would sell-and for a good price too!
