We've stayed in the Hotel Shattuck and the Claremont Hotel, both of which were so much nicer and less expensive than this B&B. We stayed here once and never again because it was the only one in the area that was available. They jacked up their prices for that weekend - a game weekend of course and it was one of the worst places I've ever stayed. There were ants crawling on the towels and it was just plain dirty. Unlike other reviewers, I was not impressed with the room or the breakfast. It was like staying in a dungeon, with old furniture and dirt everywhere. Oddly, the bathroom was almost as large as the room but they didn't bother to clean the bathroom. Guess it was too large and they didn't have time. We will never stay there again. Disgusting.

Room Tip: don't stay here

When we decided to visit our daughter in the area, she went to work, looking for a placce for us to stay. She knows what we like and she found all of our requirements in the Rose Garden Inn. Free Parking!!! Such a nice surprise after paying $22 per night in Santa Cruz! They could use a few more spots as it does fill up in later evening but we found a spot on the street close by. The rooms were small but had everything we wanted. The fridge was big so accommodated our refreshments and snacks. Great Internet connection in the room - love that. The place was clean and the cleaning staff quite prompt in attending to our room when we left for the day. Even tho it is basically an old house, we heard almost no noise. The courtyard is beautiful, the smell of roses so strong, like sitting in a actually ROSE GARDEN! The breakfast buffet is massive - you could not eat in a restaurant and get anything better. And a cup of coffee or tea and a cookie at 3pm - such a nice touch!! We had the double bridge view room with wrap around porch - absolutely the best room in the complex! Great views and a nice breeze all day! Cannot say enough about the great time at Rose Garden. Hope we can stay again soon!

Room Tip: I think rooms on upper floors would always be nicer!

I really liked the common areas of this hotel more than I liked the rooms. The garden area was lovely and inviting, even in January. The freshly baked cookies and coffee/tea that are available in the afternoon and evening in the check-in area are a nice touch. The living room with the comfy couches and gas fireplace are very inviting. The rooms seemed a bit tired and somewhat musty, although ours was very roomy. One bed was very soft and there was a step up from one room to the next that was a real trip hazard. When we came in at midnight we could hear, in one of our rooms and in the bathroom, the folks in the next room talking very loudly. The parking was certainly adequate on the weekends since the overflow could park on the street, but it would be problematic during the week. Overall, a pleasant experience.

Only stayed one night at the Rose Garden Inn, but had a pleasant experience. Staff was friendly and welcoming -- the complimentary coffee/tea and cookie on check-in were appreciated. The room I stayed in was roomy with every convenience (including refrigerator and small refrigerator). The decor is faux Victorian which can be a bit overwhelming for a minimalist like me, but considering the theme of the property it made sense. Garden well taken care of. Bed was comfy and the off-street parking was helpful. Only downside was that in my room (201) the floor in the bathroom slants down so some of the water escaped from the accessible shower and flooded the floor. Written warning about this would be helpful!
