I've been staying at this hotel the same couple of nights a year for over twenty years, and the price was always reasonable. Sometimes it was even as low as $40 or $50 a night. Now this year the price increased to $150 a night, but the hotel itself hasn't had any luxurious upgrades to validate the price increase. There... More

There are signs all over the lobby informing guests that the motel is undergoing remodeling. I highly recommend staying anywhere else until that happens. Rips in the drapes, stains on the ceilings and floors, bathroom hasn't been updated since the 60's and a wooden toilet seat with the paint chipping off. I could go on but you get the drift.... More

My first visit to this newly renovated motel 6 two months ago was great we were in a newly remodeled room. If you book here request one. My second visit about a month ago was not. We were in one of the old furbished rooms it was gross stains on the furniture and floor and the side of the mattress.... More

As far as your Motel 6 room goes it fits the bill. I always cringe when I think of having to stay in a Motel 6, so I usually steer away. I option for spending a bit more $ but getting better amenities. I booked this thru Priceline as I was driving to Hearst Castle for business and needed an... More

I rated the Rose Garden Inn in Santa Maria average when compared to other hotels in the area that are way over priced. It was apparent that this location had not been updated in years. The outdoor pool was not heated and the hot tub had been removed rether than maintained. The shower, although clean, was still a small walk... More

Staff helpful and checking in easy. Typical motel room at a good rate. The high speed internet does seem to drop out with regularity. Room has fridge, microwave but no coffee making facilities although free 24 hour coffee and waffle based breakfast available in reception area as apart of room rate. Based on its location do be prepared to hear... More

After reading the not so positive reviews, it doesn't sound like the place that we stayed. We had a lovely room (only the shower plug hole looked like it needed replacing) and we had a great night's sleep. We only stayed one night, but it served us well. I agree that the 'continental breakfast' probably isn't worth bothering with.

I have stayed here many many times over the last 30 years. More so since I moved away from the Santa Maria area. I love the people. Some rooms still need updating but some have been done. I love the rooms around the pool on the bottom floor. I heard a rumor that they are going to maybe change and... More

The rose garden inn in Santa Maria California should be condemned. I feel sorry for the roaches and bed bugs that live in this cesspool. We booked this room online and this place was nothing like the pictures. When we got to the hotel the parking lot was actually full of beds,toilets tvs dirty linens etc. From some rooms being...

My wife and two sons stayed here out of sheer necessity after I failed to book a room for us in a timely manner. Although, I have seen worst places, this is exactly what you would expect for a roadside motel. If they put half the effort into maintaining the rooms as they do the lobby, this would be a... More
