After a while searching for good price & good place to stay for My family 2 nights spring break 04/11/13 & 04/12/13, also we try to find out the location neighbor of San Luis Obispo school- ready for my daughter admit to Cal Poly School. This hotel is around 2 miles from Cal Poly School & down town. Near the Beach and Pismo Outlet. We paid $157/ 2 nights including Tax for family of 4 –we book through online.
We arrive early at 12noon, instead ontime check in 3pm / Hotel policy. The manager is really helpful . He let us check in early without additional charges. The front desk friendly
Hotel have 2 level; look old ; have nice little garden and pool. we stay upper level ( hotel no elevator ) if you carry big luggage – make sure request first floor.
Free coffee. Free WiFi . Inside the room have refrigerator and Microwave,
The room is clean, the bathroom OK; including Hair dryer . The bathroom have trouble due valve on the sink really hard to turn on & off. The toilet has to press and hold each time use for flushing ….
With the price we paid compare with other hotel, at the time that I booked with me it was a good deal. if you need place to stay & rest- this hotel is ok. Don't expect like 5 star hotel - I could value 3 star hotel. but service 4 stars.
Hope this review, could help you make a right decision to choose the hotel that you expect. Have a great vacation at Luis Obispo

We stayed going from Santa Barbara to SF Bay. Sandwiched between a Courtyard and a Hampton Inn, the Rose Garden has to try harder, and it shows. Very nice grounds (if you like roses), Clean, spacious rooms, and pet (and human) friendly. Wife was disappointed because the windy day precluded swimming. We shared an order from Margie's next door and slept like babies. Best of all, Miss Sophie was happy. We'll stop again on our next road trip South.

Room Tip: Double queen rooms are larger than single king, not that it's an issue. We appreciated first flo...

We stayed there twice on our road trip from LA to SF and were really happy with everything.
The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is really nice. The Jaccuzi and pool are perfect to relax after a long drive. Even if close to the freeway rooms are not noisy.
If you are hungry there is also a great dinner just walking distance. Margie's dinner serves quality but HUGE portions so just be aware!

Drove in for a Saturday night stay for some wine tasting, found a Google+ coupon (it's now expired) so booked a room here based on the nice looking pool area. Check-in was easy, and though the front desk had never seen the coupon before, it was honored. The room was large, quiet and clean, but the bed sagged so I got so-so sleep. Easy access location off the 101, and if you're into good diner food, walk around the corner to Margie's Diner.

Oh, we weren't able to use the pool; got in too late in the afternoon, and the next morning the grey crud returned (fog).

Thank you very much for taking the time to review the Rose Garden Inn. We really appreciate your help in making our guests more comfortable. We are in the middle of a remodel. Beds that have not been changed out yet, will be removed during the remodel and replaced with the new beds. Some rooms are already complete and the others will be shortly. We hope this will be complete before July of this year or shortly after. Thank you once again for staying with the Rose Garden Inn.

We stayed one night and traveled back and forth between Cal Poly and the beach. Great location! There was a minor glich in room keys being coded wrong, but that was quickly fixed. I loved the hangers being removable (like to hang things in the shower). The young lady who checked us out was wonderful. She found plastic utensils for us, so that my kids could eat their lunch! The volcano was a huge hit, and we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool.

Rooms are clean, bed is comfortable, staff is very friendly and accommodating and the price was inexpensive. What more could you ask for in a roadside motel? A beautiful spa area! The hot tub is large with a pretty rock waterfall. Made for a nice surprise to this place.

My husband and I stayed for one night and needed an accessible room. Our room had recently been remodeled and was clean as well as comfortable. The night clerk was very helpful and made us feel welcome. We had a few issues such as the roll-in shower didn't drain properly (flooded the floor) and there was no hairdryer or coffee pot. Evidently we were the first to use the room since the remodel. Upon leaving in the morning, the Manager was very nice and apologized for our inconvenience. The price was right for us and it is a very convenient place to stay when traveling the 101 freeway. We would definitely stay there again mostly because of the way we were treated. I'm sure that the problems we had have been resolved because of the care the Manager took to make things right.

Room Tip: We appreciated the offer to preview the room upon check in to be sure it met our needs.

I want to sincerely thank you for taking the time to review your night stay with us at the Rose Garden Inn. Reviews, such as yours, help us improve at every level. The shower you mentioned is known for it's flooding because of the way it is made, so your review will help us respond to the company, and come up with a solution to fix this problem. We have attended to the other issues of missing items in your room and are happy to say that the room is complete, and ready for your next visit. Your kind words about our staff were truly appreciated. We hope to see you again in the very near future!
Best Regards,
Daniel Ibarra
