Not the best priced hotel in SLO, but neither is it the most expensive. After years of driving by and wanting to stay there, it was hardly worth the anticipation. The first thing I look for when going to a hotel is the Gideon's bible in the night stand, I was disappointed not to see one. The bed was comfortable...

Have been here many times and just LOVE it. The manager Daniel is so nice and very professional. He made sure we had a room today when we showed up without a reservation.

All you need, refrigerator, microwave, cable tv, pool and the best hot tub ever! A short drive to the beach and town. Great rates and service. Can not be beat in San Luis Obispo! My Son is a teacher For San Luis Obispo for five years and we have been staying here since we found it three years ago.

After waiting until the last minute to make a reservation at the height of tourist season (not smart in San Luis Obispo), we were delighted to find the Rose Garden Inn. Our experience was very good. We got exactly what we asked for, found handicap parking right outside the door and our room maybe 100 feet down the hall, a...

This is our third time at this motel. It has a low star rating which I don't think it deserves. It is old and furniture is worn. However, housekeeping staff clean rooms very well. Limited toiletries but there is a Target down the road or bring your own. They have roses around property. Free wifi. Parking can get tight but...

This hotel was a great location for our 10 day family vacation. We stayed because of the price and the website's photos. The rooms were nicely redone, but the bathrooms were very old and outdated. The rest of the property is crumbling, and the parking lot is so full of potholes, that it's hard to drive through. Our main problem...
