Everything I had hoped for and more.

Tess and her staff went out of their way to make my stay very comfortable. I have allergies to dust mites and needed a room w/ no carpet. Tess had a beautiful room waiting for me. Her B&B was clean, warm, and inviting. On my last day of the stay, I had a very early flight so I would be missing breakfast. Tess left me a "care package" for my very early flight. I am looking forward to my next trip back to Santa Clara and plan to stay at the Madison Street Inn.

Theresa is absoultly wonderful. I would stay there again in a second.

My Husband and drove all the from Olympia WA. We were there for WWE WrestleMania. Every morning Theresa made us breakfast in the garden. One morning We left early She made sure We had breakfast to go. I absolutely love the big Orange tree in the back. We were allowed to pick fresh Oranges any time We wanted. This by far is truly the nicest place I have ever stayed at. With the friendliest nicest people. Thank You Theresa and Ralph you are amazing.

Decent B&B, okay location

3.0 on April 01, 2015

Decent B&B, but residential location does not make it out of the way. Comfortable room and nice service, but probably would not stay again because of the location.

Remarkable Find in Santa Clara

5 on March 26, 2015

Simply through sheer luck, my sister and I found this wonderful bed and breakfast in Santa Clara, California. We typically stay at hotel chains when we travel, but decided to try something new this trip. WHAT A TREAT! The accommodations were clean and comfortable, not to mention beautiful and historic. The breakfasts were the best we've ever had. And the owners and staff made our stay so much more than a place of lodging. We couldn't have been happier! The Madison Street Inn is a MUST for anyone traveling to this part of the country. You won't be disappointed!

Charming place to take a break

A very relaxing place to take a break and "feel at home" during a business trip to Silicon Valley. Extremely friendly and welcoming innkeepers who serve you an outstanding breakfast every morning!

Wonderful Stay with Amazing Hosts

5 on December 29, 2014

We stayed at The Madison Street Inn while visiting our son and his family. Theresa and Ralph are warm, friendly and seasoned inn-keepers. We were greeted with wine and cookies! We stayed in the beautiful Madison Room. It was spotless and the bed was very comfortable.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review. It's always our pleasure to host the parents of kids in the area.

Excellent Stay

4.0 on December 24, 2014

A great change of pace in the Silicon valley. Tess the hostess was very kind and personable. There is a lot of attention to detail and you can tell there was a lot of care placed in the house. We stayed in the Madison room which was well decorated. The one thing was that the bed did sink in a bit but this can easily be fixed.

Innkeeper Response
I'm glad that you liked your room and your visit. Thank you for the comment on the bed in this room. This bed is less than 9 months old, should not have these issues, and is covered by warranty. We have been able to order a replacement one with this information. Look forward to seeing you next time!

Wonderful Spot in the Bay Area

I stayed here in early December and it was a wonderful experience. The inn keepers are very friendly and helpful and the property is just lovely. I would definitely stay here again.

Practical, yet homey

3.4 on November 17, 2014

For a week-long business trip, this was a perfect getaway. The innkeepers were very hospitable and accommodating to crazy work schedules. Breakfast was good (eggs, potatoes, fruit) and she even provided gluten-free cereal to meet my allergy needs. The room was picked up every day (as I would expect in a hotel) and everything was cleaned nicely. Overall the house was in good shape, but it looks like they've done much of the maintenance and renovations themselves (mainly the bathrooms). A few things need updating here and there (microwave/fridge in common area) but for the price in Silicon Valley, this is hands-down a great value and I would totally stay there again.

Innkeeper Response
Very happy to hear that we met this guest's needs satisfactorily, especially since they rarely stay at B & B's, so may have different expectations I try to learn something from every guest/review, and picked up that both fridge and microwave needed to be update. Done. Glad that the yesterday found us good value for the area and that they will return.
