Staff was friendly, morning breakfast was good. Grounds were full of flowers and smelled lovely. Rooms were a little old and outdated and were in need of a redo. It was clean but just older and its charm didn't quite overcome the badly needed renovations. Also there was little to no parking in the lots so you may have to... More

Fifteen years ago, I went to Berkeley, CA, for a meeting, and stayed at the Rose Garden Inn. At that time, it was nice, and I wanted to go back ... big mistake! We booked this B&B, for June 5-7, 2015. As we rounded the corner, into the neighborhood, there was a shooting. The neighborhood is now run down, and... More

Room was no more thab ok. No AC, which is fine since opening a window allows for air into the otherwise stuffy room. The problem was noise during the second night of my stay. There was a party in a room below, and the smokers outside were really noisy. The front desk was notified twice, but no serious action was... More

Went to Berkeley for reunion, stayed in this hotel. The place is classic, charming and has a lot of nice roses. Service was good, we had some minor complain about housekeeping but nothing serious. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and I can recommend the place.

I decided to give this place a try because most of the negative reviews seemed pre-renovation, and I'm glad I did! Room was exceptionally quiet and dark, got a great night sleep. Staff are extremely helpful and setting is quaint. Breakfast is one of the better ones I've seen for free. Best for people traveling without cars, although they do... More

We stayed one night so to be close to family and the University. A lovely inn with a great breakfast. Our room was reasonable in price ($179 + taxes) and very clean. A B&B type room with bathroom and sitting area. Lots of stairs if that's a problem although the lower level has ramps.

I booked my stay through a travel site and expected a so-so experience but was I wrong. After calling and being guided to their parking area, I was buzzed in. The hotel has a small, nice feel to it. The office is hard to find without signage at night but the hotel manager Jerimiah was great! He greeted me, gave... More

The hotel itself is gorgeous, especially with the courtyard. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. However, what really made our stay was the impeccable service! I will absolutely stay here every time I am in the area!

I stayed in the wrap-around King Suite for 2 nights when I recently had surgery in Oakland. I booked online - be sure to do that, as you will save yourself a lot of money! Online the price was $159 for the first night, and $189 for the second (a Friday) - the lady at the front desk quoted me... More

Very expensive for what you get. The room was a little weird. There was little to no natural light. There was a second bed which was at a different level to the main bed. It was just taking up space really and the room would have been nicer without it. The surfaces had a bit of a shabby finish. Overall... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our Inn. From your comments I can tell you stayed with us during one of the busier times in Berkeley. Our rates do vary, but are always competitive with the surrounding hotels. We have a big demand for rooms with more than one bed, and have tried to meet... More
