Room quality was WAY better than we expected. Very nice with a local touch to the bathrooms, and the beds were extremely comfortable. Can't be beat for the price! Will stay there again if in the area.

My boyfriend and I came here to spend a night away from our housemates and have a pseudo-Christmas in January, as I was away with family for the holidays. This was our favorite local hotel or motel we've ever stayed at. We got a room with a fireplace and whirlpool tub, and it was amazing! The room was large, clean,... More

My husband and I are Birdwatchers. We like a motel with a desk and chair for him to write his reports, and a comfy chair for me to read my book. The Rose Garden had that. We need a microwave and refrigerator. Tick! Everything was clean and neat, although the outlet for the hair-dryer was loose and sparky and I... More

Attracted by all of the positive TA reviews, and by the fact that pets are allowed, we spent two nights here in late December 2014. It was disappointing. The good points - friendly and helpful staff, warm cookies each evening - were more than offset by the bad - tiny shower (if you drop the soap, there's not enough room... More

This had to have been the best two days of this year! My daughters and I stayed here Christmas Eve/Christmas Day. Our room was absolutely wonderful, clean, smelled good, and had everything we needed even the most comfortable bed and pillows. The staff was super great and the breakfast was awesome! Love it here and will always recommend it to... More

Have stayed at many BW's in different states, but this one is definitely at the top of the list! Room (suite) was large & even had a fireplace. Linens were crisp and clean. Breakfast had many choices & good coffee. Room was very quiet - didn't hear other guests or road noise. Staff was very friendly. Area appeared well-kept and... More

Definitely a great hotel. In fact, the nicest one I've stayed in all year. The accommodations are clean and attractive. The breakfast is complete with many options and all the food is fresh. The fitness room is small but everything was in working order. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would absolutely stay here again.
