This place is hit or miss. I've stayed here before and they have some really amazing unique rooms. But this visit was awful. I arrived to a room that toilet seat was unattached, i sat on it and literally fell off onto the floor, then sat on the corner of the bed and it tipped

I stayed in the family suite for 3 nights. I had my 25 year old son, and my 81 year old mother. It worked perfectly. The check in was super easy and they were very accommodating when we hoped to check in early. The grounds are large (for in the city) and made it easy for us to

Lock malfunctioned and I wasn’t able to access my room, nor could the staff figure out how to access it. They finally broke into it and let me know not to leave for the night or I wouldn’t be able to get back in with my card, until “the guy” comes the next day. They couldn’t

Hi Steven, Thank you kindly for your review; we very much appreciate it. We are sorry that you experienced some difficulties with your keycard. Unfortunately, bank card and cellphones can sometimes affect the operation of these keys, but we understand how frustrating this can be. It is most unusual for our team to be unable to access your room, but we are pleased that we ultimately found a (drastic) solution. We apologize for all of the small issues that you encountered and the suggestions on how to improve our future guests' stays. We appreciate your comments, and we will endeavor to take some actions in advance of your next stay with us. We hope that you notice some improvements at that time. Best wishes, Hotel Management

We spent a nice evening at the Rose Garden Inn. It is conveniently located a walk to Elmwood in Berkeley and the UC Berkeley Campus. The room we had would have slept 4 comfortable, it came complete with a small kitchen and sitting area with a fireplace. It was a little funky but

Stayed for 1 night last Friday. Thought the rate of $267 was ridiculous for what we got. Room was terrible. Holes in the wall, rotting baseboards, gaps in the bathroom between wall & tile, shower was patched. Took 5 minutes for the sink to have warm water. And this is

Hi Paul, Thank you for choosing to stay with us recently; we are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay, and that our hotel was not entirely suitable for your accommodation needs. We are sorry that the wonderful value that we offer did not appeal to you, this is not the general feedback that we get. We are pleased to provide clean, comfortable accommodation at a very competitive rate in this area, and we are sorry that we and our property were unable to meet your expectations. Thank you for choosing to stay here on this occasion. Best wishes, Hotel Management

Haven't been back since my September review. I have just received input from a guest who stayed in the same room as my wife and I the night prior to our visit. They also had a bed bug problem and reported it to management. Boom, we were in the next night and were chewed up. Seems management needs to be more attentive.

Hi would like to know what time is check in thanks
Three o'clock is check-in time. Be sure to arrive early as parking is VERY limited and it is not a neighborhood where you want to be schlepping your luggage and you around after dark.
