“stuffy room with great survice”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The room was a little stuffy and humid. The stuffy goes away once you open the window, the humid.. well, you adapt to that. cleanliness is a 3/5.. the sheets where clean- the bathroom was a little icky. There is a warning in the bathroom: if there is any missing towels you pay for it; including the little square towels that some of us are tempted to take.
The room seem to keep sound out better than most places ive stayed at. The maid still knocked on the door 1000 "housekeeping" with my do not disturb sign on the handle pocket ey ey!
the pool and jacuzzi is clean- the continental breakfast is fair, boiled eggs, toast, coffee, you can make waffles, sit down space is comfortable. service is nice. there is only one computer by the main lobby, and you can ask staff to print anything you might need. great bargain for the price, and the location is safe and comfortable.

Room Tip: a room with a balcony can go a long way

On a 2 week USA trip we stayed in avariety of accomodation, and Hotel Rosedale was delighful. Great value for a very affordable amount. It was much better than other budget places we stayed at, and infact I could easily stay several days. The staff wee helpful and friendly, and the rooms large. the huge pool complex was gorgeous - lots of greenery and in the centre of the hotel so a lovely courtyard. generaour breakfast choices (waffles, biscuits etc as well as continental) and the Bar/Restaurant was very pleasant too. Next to the I5 but we ddin't notice any noise - very handy to get to

Room Tip: one overlooking the pool would be good (we diodn't have one but didn't mind as ours was huge...

Stayed here twice for 1 night to & from San Diego. Similar rooms each time, the first on the ground floor near the lobby; the 2nd on the opposite side from the lobby & on the 2d floor. Both rooms overlooked the central pool, jacuzzi, picnic areas, which are a pleasant view of greenery & water. And in August a definite plus!
The room amenities are some of the best I've encountered: small frig w/freezer section (great for blue ice packs,) microwave, coffee maker, free WiFi, flat screen TV and either patio or balcony with 2 chairs & a table. Found the rooms & bathrooms to be clean, well furnished with towels & bedding, as well as black-out drapes. Very comfortable beds. For someone who's been on the road for several hours & has several more hours on the road, the rooms provide a quiet & restful environment. Sampled the complimentary breakfast, which is described accurately in an earlier review. It was adequate for my needs. I've stayed at a chain motel previously in the same general area, but will stay here without hesitation. Another plus: multiple places to eat at all price levels within a 3-mile radius, and a Costco store + gasoline station about a block away.

Well...My fiance' and I stayed here after looking for a nice affordable room late night. The entrance is nice, the staff was friendly. The price we paid was decent (we were really tired). We asked for a non-smoking room, the room said non-smoking but did smell of smoke. The room was nicely apportioned, and the bed was very comfortable. The continental breakfast was okay, at least they did offer boiled eggs, and biscuits and gravy. This along with the standard pastries, toast, cereal (cold), yogurt, fruit (apples), juice, and milk. The breakfast is served in the bar/restaurant area, and has a very nice big screen TV. This ice machines are located outside, somewhat inconvenient. The rooms all have their own patios (table & 2 chairs), which open to the courtyard. The pool area and interior grounds are beautiful, especially this time of year. However...the hotel is under renovation. They are changing from the red lion, to their new name (Hotel Rosedale). So...with that being said, the room had some issues. It was clean, but some area were in need of attention. But, it wasn't anything to make me not stay again. Overall, not bad for the price.

Room Tip: Hum? I would ask for one that has been renovated already, and toward the front.

Never ever stay at this Hotel!!!! We had prepaid reseverations for two suites, when we arrived we were informed, by the rudiest receptionist I have ever met, that we had no reservations and they were booked thru the weekend and could not help us. I produced our reservations and she informed me that since they were made thur a 3rd party I would need to contact them to straighten it out. We went next door to the Marriott were we did not have reservations and they had no problem accommodating us.

Our experience was awful. We booked this hotel based on the experience from some of our friends. Turns out the hotel has 3 levels of rooms (unofficially). The one's at the entrance are the best rooms. The ones in the middle are poor, and the one's in the back are ghetto. If you read good reviews, the guests were problably in the rooms at the entrance. Our room was near the pool. The carpet was FILTHY - stains everywhere. I had to be on the kids to never take off their flip flops. The beds were clean. The worst part - We found 4 cockroaches! I can deal with dirty carpet, but draw the line at bugs! One of our friends got a room in the back (ghetto), problems included: roaches, filthy carpet, no air conditioning, bathroom door not closing, no fan in the bathroom, and pealing wall paper. I heard of one person complaining of mold on the ceiling. On the positive side, breakfast selection was good, and the pool is awesome. The beds were very comfortable, and the location is great.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms in the entrance of the hotel, and if they still have roaches before you book.
