Loved our stay here. The pool and gardens are beautiful. The rooms are older but very well kept, but it was the management (Daniel) that made our stay memorable. The pool and water feature is fantastic. Pet Friendly, too

the place is a little run down! Clean and maintained as far as rooms and facility are concerned, but the bath facilities are definitely worn out and outdated. Staff was very friendly and helpful and they do their best to assist you! Though HW 101 runs by only a few hundred feet away from the place, it is quite and... More

Rose Garden Inn was exttremely friendly as I was setting up my college student/athletes with housing for two weeks since their rental apartments were not ready yet. Mary in the front desk set them up nicely and professionally. Nubia and Daniel at the front office were also very friendly and courteous. The boys always complimented the staff on being friendly...

Through my many years of business and personal travel, I've spent many at countless hotels throughout the nation. What makes Rose Garden Inn a standout in my mind is the combination of the rooms, the grounds and most importantly the staff. Any place can have good beds and cable packages, but the staff at the RGI is what takes this... More

The staff at the Rose Garden Inn have been amazing. Driving for 9 hours from Arizona the environment and the staff has truly made this experience fulfilling. The front desk staff Mary Glend was very helpful and nice. I will definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends:)

The front desk staff is nice: specifically Daniel and Novia who went out of their way to help my husband and I this week. Daniel was very friendly to tired travelers who drove 3 days from Seattle. The grounds are absolutely stunning: fuchsias and red roses in full-bloom surround the hotel, there is a large pool big enough for my... More

If you're traveling on a budget but still would like a nice, clean place to stay in San Luis Obispo definitely consider the Rose Garden Inn. I was concerned when booking due to a couple recent poor reviews but we found the place to be clean and in good order. In fact, for the price I would be surprised if... More

This motel is one of the most pleasant places my wife and I have stayed. It is definitely the Best Value we've found in our travels since I retired. The rooms are spacious, very clean and well furnished with comfortable beds. The location is perfect to go north to Morro Bay, Cayucos and Cambria, or south to Avila Beach, Pismo... More

Stayed at the hotel from 7/15/13-7/18/13. Landscaping was appealing with all the pretty roses. Hot tub and pool looked very nice. Room was decent especially for the great prices they have. Appreciated the organic toiletries they provided daily. Would stay there again! Only thing they could fix is by starting to provide a continental breakfast that'd make it even better.
