In the evening the room was very quiet and you can't seem to hear... More

It's right near city center, the mall, and restaurants. Only drawback is wifi is limited to 200 free MB per day, but that's seems to be the norm... More

After a dreadful night elsewhere in PN, we looked for somewhere better to stay. We found it. The hosts are just lovely, the rooms are clean, with everything you would need. It's easy walking distance to town. I won't stay anywhere else on my next visit. Well done guys.

This is home away from home... we've stayed as a family, couple & now on my own. No need to try other motels, we will stay with Rose City every time! Units are well equipped, nicely decorated, spacious and comfortable. Super clean! Location is fantastic, Hosts very friendly & couldn't have been more helpful.
