Smells like feet. Not good area. Construction men coming and going. You can hear everything though the paper thin walls. Not ever going back. 5 locks on the door not enough? Try razor barbed wire on the fence. Not even worth 1 star. Tay away. You have been warned.

I don't understand why this is a $200 hotel. Certainly, there's something wrong with this recommendation on Trip Advisor's site. The hotel is dated although the rooms are sizeable. The linens appear to be from the 70s. No breakfast is offered. Currently about 2/3 of the clientele is the construction crew who seem to think this is a dorm, not... More

I traveled with my children from SF to Ventura, and wanted to break-up the drive with a stay in SLO. After reading the reviews for Rose Garden Inn, I decided to give it a try even though I thought the rate a little high for our purpose. I thought my kids would like the pool so decided to make a...

The location was fine. The room was generally a nice room. However, the bed was very soft and we were a bit inclined to roll off. Most unfortunate was the hot water situation. In the morning we turned on the shower and only found cold water. We called the office and were told a part was on order and there... More

Wanted a cheap overnighter for our drive from Monteray to LAX. Well this was expensive at AU$160++ for a small nondescript room at the entrance to a freeway. The lady at reception was very friendly and helpful. The town is really charming, all the ordinary hotels are clustered in this little street at the freeway entrance. It was fine for... More

We stayed recently at the Rose Garden Inn. Our room was on the small size but very well equipped; microwave, refrigerator etc. It was very nice and comfortable for us and we appreciated the friendly and helpful staff. We plan to return soon.

This hotel could use a little t.l.c. and it could be a nice little hotel. Updating the decor and carpets and the bathrooms hopefully is on their list of things to do. Good hotel if you are traveling and just need a bed to sleep... but not a destination hotel.

Great place to stay. Beautiful grounds, clean rooms, and exceptional customer service from all the staff! The pool and spa area are absolutely gorgeous! Would certainly recommend highly to anyone traveling in this area.

The hotel is extremely outdated. For what you get it's extremely over-priced. The people were friendly and they had free WiFi. The rooms were somewhat clean. Pillows were horrible--about 1 inch thick. Bed was very uncomfortable. For what I paid, it was not worth the money. It was $9 more than Anderson Inn at Morro Bay--and not even in the... More
