Delightful

5 on January 27, 2016

Just the relaxing break I needed. I used to live in Santa Clara and it was fun discovering this part of the town. Perfect for my meeting at the university..


Conference stay

Nicely done alternative to large hotel for conference stay.


Why you stay at a bed and breakfast.

4.0 on November 02, 2015

It was such a pleasure to stay in this quaint B&B. It had the charm of a Victorian without being overdone, as well as a beautiful backyard. The best part was Ralph and Theresa, hosts extraordinaire. PS - If they ask you to join them for dinner, say "Yes!"


My home away from home.

4.8 on September 21, 2015

I loved this place. I was coming in to town to visit an old friend. She mentioned that there was a b&b right down the road from her home. I figured I'd give it a shot, the last place I stayed was a little scary. When I arrived, there it was, a picture of perfection. This older well kept home sitting under a very large and old tree. It was providing shade to some of the home as well as the white picket fenced yard. When I knocked on the door, the owner answered with a big smile. She welcomed me into her home and showed me around. As we walked to my room, we passed a plate of fresh baked cookies and a few bottles of wine. She said you are welcome to partake in them anytime. I thought that the folks who run the b&b were very friendly and inviting. I enjoyed delicious food every morning and here is the part that I loved, fresh squeezed orange juice from the tree in the back yard. My only issue in the bathroom was the hair dryer was miss functioning. I had a wonderful stay here and I ended up in the suit, which had it's own entrance. I look forward to staying here again whenever I come to visit my friend. Dottie R. Wisconsin


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!

3.8 on June 22, 2015

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!

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


Great place at a great price

4.6 on June 08, 2015

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
