Front desk called us at midnight (3 am where we flew in from) and woke us up to tell us our credit card was no good. My husband went down to front desk, they ran card again and it was just fine. (Credit card company said there was no problem with card and didn't see any declination on their end)....

This may have been quaint at one time but now it's just shabby. The room is in dire need of refreshing and repairs. The heater was so loud you couldn't sleep. The bathroom needed a good clean. The breakfast was embarrassing in a city that values food and healthy living. The staff were not helpful. The only reason I didn't...

Stayed here one night and had a beautiful room with an amazing amount of space. The inn is a collection of restored cottages. The free breakfast was very good and included potatoes, eggs, bacon, sausage, bread, french toast, juice, coffee and fruit.

This is billed as a charming one-of-a-kind place, with rooms scattered about a garden area in the back. The rooms have faux traditional furnishings .... old, little run down, chipped, but generally serviceable.Screens broken and bathroom smells (awful). And the garden area is dowdy. The neighborhood is unattractive, and parking is limited. Mainly, however, the staff is always rude. I...

The night before I was to arrive at the Rose Garden Inn with 8 high school students to attend a conference I was notified that they had overbooked and my reservation was cancelled. I made the booking 2 months in advance, had a confirmation #, and verified by phone 2 weeks earlier about the accommodations but they heartlessly left me...

Two times out of two there was hair in my complimentary breakfast and at no point did the internet work. The front desk pretended to do something about it. I had to use my smartphone to get to the internet. Old building with perfumed room smells - tough on people with respiratory issues. On the plus side, it is peaceful...

Hi Peter, Thank you for your review. Whilst it's great that you enjoyed your stay with us in the main, we are very sorry that there was a problem with our internet during your stay. This is an unusual complaint for us to get, our signal is generally strong, so this must have been a one-off occurrence. We apologize sincerely...

The place is old and quaint, and hotel staff are pleasant. The rooms are as advertised, but do not expect anything that is not advertised. The lighting and security at night is a bit lacking. The room was noisy.

The word "inn" in the name might conjure images of antiques and New England charm. Dispel those images, and replace them with scenes from an amateurish DIY job. But keep reading this review, because the Rose Garden might still be the place for you. On my latest trip to Berkeley, I stayed at both of the hotels that are within...

This hotel has a family atmosphere. Flavour smell or flowers furing summer and autumn time. The room is clean. The service is good. The garden is nice. The Maingate is somehow ancient. I had a good experience .

I stayed here for one night. It's in a good location, especially if you're looking to be near UC Berkeley or the general downtown area. I was not expecting anything luxurious, especially since this is just an inn as opposed to a top-of-the-line hotel, but it's really getting old and isn't being well maintained and it shows. The rooms are...

We're happy that you were reasonably satisfied with your stay with us, but a little disappointed that we sense that you were underwhelmed. As you say, we do have an older property, which is part of our charm, and some guests do love this. We do understand that this is not to everyone's taste however. We appreciate your comprehensive review,...
