I think all inns and b&bs are quirky. I don't really mind have a clothes closet in the bathroom, but some people might object. Our room was very small - couldn't even fit a comfy chair- but the mattress was certainly adequate. Decoration was not particularly noticable. The bathroom tub could use some renovation - or even a new tub.... More

The Rose Garden Inn is a pretty old, badly maintained facility. The people who run it are nice and kind, but the location (hotel buildings between car parks and car shop), the excess of stair, no A/C, make it a really bad choice, mainly for the summer! It is not "a bohemian style", it is a mess, simply not comfortable,... More

This hotel has a definite bohemian feel, Our rooms were tastefully and artistically decorated. The staff were friendly and the location was very central. The breakfast was adequate, I enjoyed sitting in the boho garden to eat, Overall a comfortable stay.

I stayed at the Rose Garden Inn with my family for a week vacation. Each room was decorated beautifully and artistically. The staff was courteous and helpful in accommodating our large crowd. The location is great as it's in the heart of Berkeley. Would definitely recommend!

My wife & I stayed here for two nights recently for a business trip & early wedding anniversary getaway. Due to a mixup on our reservation, we were courtesy upgraded to a king suite complete with fireplace off the main building. The ambience is very appropriate to the "Berkeley Bohemian" atmosphere. Just a couple of blocks from Whole Foods and... More

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
