Stayed here for 5 nights. Great location close to UC and downtown. Had a room in the back (not in the main house) and it was very quiet and convenient to the parking lot. Kevin and the team made me feel comfortable from the beginning through the end of my stay. Will be back again.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Rose Garden Inn for 5 nights. This was my first trip to Berkeley so I was very unfamiliar with the area. The staff was extremely friendly and went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable. They provided information on places to eat and locations to visit. I must admit I... More

I was upgraded to a room that had a combination of living room and king size bed with enclosed fully equipped kitchen. It was on the first floor next to a parking lot. The property is old and has lots of charm. It reminded me on my first house in Midwest. The furniture was antique with French decor flair. The... More

I wish I could give this a 2.5, but I can't give it a 3, as I feel it is below average and needs some improvement. This is a large, old 'mansion' with detached additional buildings serving as a hotel. The room I was in was right by the front door, #603. Surprisingly, I didn't notice a lot of noise... More

We first booked three nights before heading north for the weekend. We liked it so much, that we also booked four nights when we came back to Berkeley at the end of our holiday. Especially we loved the garden, with beautiful threes and flowers and cosy sitting groups. Our room was big (junior suite), with a balcony and a fireplace... More

The manager Kevin was very friendly and accommodating! Rose Garden Inn is a cozy place with a real garden. Please note that there is no minibar! (I should have read the description more carefully in Priceline)

Thank you for your kind review! Alas, we are sorry not to be able to offer our guests minibars, but on the bright side, it encourages visitors to explore some of the fantastic watering holes that Berkeley has to offer! Stop by the front desk on your next visit for some local recommendations, or to borrow our ever-popular DIY corkscrew,... More

We have stayed at the Rose Garden Inn repeatedly over the years and have never had a poor experience. They are very accommodating, parking is convenient, the breakfast is good, it is quiet and clean. It is an eclectic combination of buildings, so some rooms are upstairs, and there is no elevator; but for those with mobility problems there are... More

Thank you for your lovely and complimentary review! We are delighted to be your home away from home on your visits to Berkeley! Thank you also for understanding that adding elevators to our turn-of-the-century victorian mansions would compromise the period authenticity that we strive so hard to maintain. We're so glad that you appreciate and value our charm and character,... More

My family stayed in a two room suite that had a full kitchen, two queen beds and a large king bed, and a pull out couch. If you are a large group, I would definitely recommend asking for our room. As an added bonus, we noticed a small day bed on the side of the room (which we were not... More

Stayed here for an MSRI workshop. The actual garden is full of flowers and smells quite nice. The rooms were unique and full of character. I stayed in two rooms because I was unable to book 6 in a row in one (this was not a surprise to me, I signed up late and had booked two stays.) My second... More

This was a lovely shabby chic hotel, where the service people are lovely and the rooms are comfortable. Everything was clean, and it seemed as though it's heyday was in the 1940s, The big surprise was the downscale breakfast. With all the fresh foods in Berkeley,the bub f the food movement, it's a shame to have foods that are from... More
