“A beautiful Find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2010

The hotel is lovely, it consisted of several building surrounding a lovely garden and patio with outdoor sitting for having breakfast or just relaxing. The hotel is walking distance, for us New Yorkers, to the campus of UC Berkeley, about 15.20 minutes, about 15 minute walk to the BART, station, about 20/25 minute drive to downtown Oakland and the ferry to San Francisco, and about 35 minutes to San Francisco by car, non-rush hour. The rooms were very nice, bright and large, good bed, nice bathroom, nice breakfast, varied options. Good and varied restaurant selection within walking distance.

Recently caught a concert at the Greek and was lucky to stay at Rose Garden Inn. Room was older but adequate for our needs and the customer service and friendliness of the staff was great, especially Cornelius, who truly offers Berkeley's finest service to his hotel customers. Just a few blocks from campus and related nightlife, but far enough away so that its not crowded on the street or loud at night. Great breakfast as well. Would love to come back some day.

I reserved here for its proximity to a class I was taking, and it turned out to be far better than just easy walking distance. All the comforts of home, friendly desk clerks with all the answers to my questions, great breakfasts, the loveliest surroundings, free wireless downstairs . . . and my own tiny balcony! I couldn't have asked for more. Several times I returned with an organic deli dinner from the Berkeley Bowl grocery to enjoy in the late afternoon sun and fresh air. Except there are also great restaurants with reasonable prices just up Telegraph Ave. from the Rose Garden Inn, not to mention shopping and particularly used books (Moe's ships). A totally wonderful time. I'd stay at the Rose Garden again at the drop of a hat.

Me and my husband stayed at the Rose Garden Inn on a trip to Berkeley to see a concert at The Greek Theatre. It was in walking distance to the concert and dining. We especially enjoyed the full continental breakfast! We will be back for future trips!

Simply fantastic! A splendid mix of charm, location and epicurean breakfast fit for the most discriminating traveler. And all a very affordable price.

The staff makes you feel like you own the place.

Rose Garden Inn is an excellent bed and breakfast in Berkeley, not far from the UC campus. It has a charming series of buildings with nicely decorated rooms that have many amenities. The breakfast is ample and delicious. Great staff and service. This is an excellent choice for a place to stay in Berkeley.
