Delightful owners and staff. Interesting conversations with owners, staff and other guests. Outstanding breakfasts.

The house is spectacularly decorated. Felt like I went back in time and spent the night in my Grandmother's old house. Comfortable beds, bath was nice. Breakfast was great in the morning. Can't beat that they keep scones and port available for you. Loved it. Highly recommended.

Great place to stay for airport trips

Teresa was warm and welcoming - the house was cozy and comfortable, all areas clean and ready for guests. Breakfast was a fantastic meal out on the patio by the pool. Will definitely visit here again anytime I have to stay in San Jose.

Comfortable :)

This was our second stay at Madison Street Inn. We love the charm of this old Victorian and the owners are wonderful hosts. Breakfast is always a treat of freshly made items, plenty of coffee, tea and OJ to go along. A very convenient location in Santa Clara when we visit our son at SCU.

I love this place

I stayed here in January 2017 for 2 weeks and loved everything about this place! The breakfast was delicious, the Innkeepers were very gracious and hospitable, and the beds were cozy and comfortable. My best away from home experience ever!

Great location and very personable service!

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely Victorian home, and we will definitely book here again whenever we are in the area. The owners recommended two restauarants for us to visit, and they were both excellent!

The only room named after a General instead of a President, the Fremont room is a light, airy corner room with lots of natural lighting. Although one of our smaller rooms, it is the favorite room of Theresa. She attributes her love for this room to the two windows and the Bay leaf tree right outside one of the windows. Sharing a bathroom with the Jefferson room, this room has a full-size bed and a refinished antique cast iron sink in the room.
