Madonna Inn

in the Daisy May room with my new records: Hank Snow & Anita Carter, The Platters
Daisy May

Everyone ought to stay at the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, CA, at least once before they die because it is truly a beatific sight to behold. Pink explodes like fireworks before the eyes, and gold cherubs swoop down from the ceilings to greet weary travelers. On a personal note, I can think of no place more appropriate to wear my favorite vintage pink duds.

Pete and I stayed in the Daisy May room, which features rock floors, walls, and ceilings and best of all a rock waterfall shower. But we really didn’t spend too much time in the room. Instead, we spent a breezy evening in the jacuzzi, went to dinner in town, and then came back to listen to a dj spin obscure 90s music to a crowd of ballroom dancing seniors in the Silver Bar cocktail lounge. I can’t wait to return and try out another kitschy room.

Happy Friday, buddies.
