Very pleasant place to stay and incredibly friendly hosts

4.4 on July 10, 2015

Stayed over the 4th of July holiday - Theresa and Ralph and Kiki (sp?) were wonderful hosts. Marvelous breakfasts and a very comfortable pool. there are enough rooms that you get a chance to meet people from all over. rooms are small compared to a hotel, but made up for by the common areas.


I Will Keep Going Back!

This was my second visit to the Madison Street Inn. I love the cozy feel of the inn, and the breakfasts are amazing! Both visits were for business, and it's so nice to have a warm and "homey" place to stay after a long day of work. I will definitely continue to stay here as long as I can get a room (they are very in-demand!) My score would have been higher, but the rating system on the survey wouldn't allow me to check "outstanding" on the onsite dining category. The highest I was able to go was to "Exceeded my expectations."


LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this B & B!!

I hesitate to give this place such high reviews, because it is a gem and the more people that know this, the harder it will be to find a room when I want one!

So nice to hear! we look forward to hosting you many more times.


Great place at a great price

We were looking for a place to stay in the bay area. This was comparable to staying at an impersonal "big box hotel". It was a quiet and intimate. The food was wonderful Outside dinning was outstanding. Service was spectacular. If you are looking for a place to stay and visit friends or the city it is worth the extra drive. Inexpensive places in the city were $50 more plus many charged for parking.


Seemed a bit rushed

2.8 on June 01, 2015

We were only at the B and B for one night, but I felt our breakfast was rushed as the owner had to leave for a run. She didn't prepare enough sausage for all guests and I felt we weren't given enough waffles to satisfy. As soon as we were done eating, another staff member seemed anxious to have us pay and leave. This is not the service I am accustomed to at a B and B.

Innkeeper Response
Sounds like we all dropped the ball with these guests... My sincere aplogises. I hope that it does not stop them from trying another Inn another time

Fabulous Place to Stay -- Will Come back if They Have Space!

Had a delightful but brief stay at The Madison Street Inn, extremely pleasant comfortable and a welcome relief from the big name hotels that I have "frequent-visitor" memberships in. No points added to my hotel accounts, but this is totally worth it. It's run so well by professional and friendly people, and the whole place is comfortable and stress-free. Breakfast was wonderful as well. Thank you, Madison Street Inn and People for making it the absolute best night on a lengthy and annoying business trip!

Ahhh.. Nice to hear¿


Favorite Place to Stay When in Area

4.0 on May 09, 2015

This last visit completely met our expectations (especially value), but with a few items needing attention. First, I'm not certain when the bed mattress was last updated; along with the inflexible foam pillows, it made for a rough night's sleep. Second, I thought that the breakfast fell short in comparison to prior visits, in that the French toast was really soggy. We remember being introduced to a version of huevos rancheros here, so that was the mark by which all other MSI breakfasts are measured. Those quibbles aside, Theresa made us feel welcome (as always), and her staff are both very pleasant and accommodating.

Innkeeper Response
Happy to have returning gusts like this:) We have been having issues with this bed, and it turns out it was the frame not the mattress. The mattress is less than a year old. Last week, we took the bed apart and reinforced the wooden slats and added cross members. We have been checking with guests since, all good, and think this has finally solved the issue. the memory foam pillows have been replaced with down, memory foam is not for everyone. Yes, the Madison Eggs is a very popular dish1 feel free to ask for it.


I would return again -- Santa Clara / San Jose hospitality

4.4 on May 04, 2015

Just a quick overnight stay to catch a morning flight out of SJC -- which is why I chose Madison Street Inn. A different experience, and one of home comfort.


An awesome find!

Very accommodating owners! Breakfasts were awesome and loved the homemade cookies and port. Lovely back yard and very relaxing. I highly reccommend!

Innkeeper Response
Our cookies are always a hit! We feel our backyard is a very special place...
