Do not stay here. The host performs minimal upkeep and you can tell. Noteably: loose faucets, wobbly fans that keep you awake, cold water, missing faceplate on electrical outlets, the list goes on. Not worth the price at all.

Shabby, old, like a bad motel. Just kind of creepy. I don't know why anyone would stay here, I feel kinda duped by the front of the place. I guess I got the handicap room. It looked and smelled like an old folk's home or hospital. Front desk clerk was very nice though. Won't stay here again.

Stayed here a couple months of months ago for a wedding, because this was where the majority of guests were staying. We were initially looking forward to staying here given some reviews calling the Inn "historic" and "rustic. Let me make it clear- this is a high-priced, run-down hotel. For ~$200, we stayed in a first floor bedroom, which was... More

When we went to our room there was still someone else's luggage there, but they where able to resolve the problem quickly. The scenery was beautiful, and they had coffee or hot water for tea 24hrs. The breakfast was okay but you get what you pay for. Its also located about a 15 min walk to downtown Berkeley. i would... More

We used to stay at the Rose Garden Inn when our first son was at Cal. With our second son now there too we thought we would rekindle to memories from days gone by. Unfortunately the BED BUGS had other ideas. My wife was chewed up from head to toe. We were in room 204 in September 2016. Buyer beware... More

This place is very specIal and unique. The 40 rooms are all quaint and interesting. Each time we have stayed here, we have had a sitting area with a fireplace and 2 televisions. We've also had a refrigerator and microwave. The location is ideal and an easy walk to Cal and numerous great restaurants. The only complaint I have is... More

We had reservations and once we saw it in person - we cancelled! It is very run down and even Libby bathroom had faucet that you had to fiddle with to turn off. It's a shame as the property could be redone to be really charming.

If you ever dreamed of staying at the Exotic Marigold Hotel when in Berkeley or Oakland, this is your chance. Looks better from the outside definetely. Very slow reception. Rooms at 3 pm. Good luck with parking and directions from front desk. Room falling apart (literally), bed takes all the room, clean but scrapy, creaky and... Of course, what can... More

My wife stayed here while working on a project at Berkeley SSL. The place seemed okay until she work up in the middle of the night covered in bed bugs. She's now at the laundry mat at 6am washing all her possessions, including her shoes & purse. This place needs to be closed & fumigated immediately!

The Rose Garden Inn is the kind of quaint that you would expect to find in a foreign country. It features over 40 rooms situated in a collection of ramshackle old mansions surrounding pleasant gardens. All far as I can tell, the rooms all vary in price and come in all sizes and shapes, so you have to have a... More
