Verified Reviews of Madonna Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"$80 Luxury tax for one night."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The hotel is fine and charming, it's an institution but beware of a last minute luxury charge when you check in. We booked through a website and stayed one night for a close friend's wedding. The rate was high but manageable and it was close to the venus but when we came to check in they charged us an $80 luxury tax even though we weren't there long enough to use any of the amenities. I spoke with the management to get it waived but they said it was their policy, I don't feel it's right to have one rate and then tack on another significant amount when you check in. It was disappointing since friends had recommended the hotel. If we had the time and options I would have sought another hotel. It's a fine hotel but make sure you have the cash to enjoy the last minute charges.
