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

We stayed here for one night to attend a Jimmy Buffet concert at the Greek Theater in October. The Rose Garden Inn is on a good sized piece of Berkeley property in a complex of quaint buildings with several room choices. The web site is well organized and provides valuable information in that regard. There is limited parking on site.... More

A lovely building with many different houses and a beautiful garden with flowering trees and fragrant roses. This is located on Telegraph Avenue near the center of downtown. We chose a cozy room with a fireplace and it was so romantic. The breakfast was ok with eggs, bacon and good coffee. I would love to stay here again.

I stayed in a top floor with with a sliver of a view.mthere is no air conditioning. The sparse staff was nice. The breakfast was fine. The Victorian decor was no my taste. But the main problem was the hot room.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I'm sorry that we seemed to have had a hot spell while you were in the area. Berkeley is known for it's temperate climate ... rarely getting much warmer than 70. Due to the climate, and the historic nature of our Inn, we indeed do not have air conditioning. We... More

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
