Not too big and kinda tricky to get to, but a great value. Had a large room with fridge and microwave. Stayed only one night but would recommend for longer. One side faces highway 101, so recommend asking for room facing away from that if noise bothers you.

Stayed for two nights at this motel. The room was clean and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The motel grounds are beautiful with lots of grass and flowers. We enjoyed our stay.

I'm going to tell you about Rose Garden Inn because I care about you having a good time on your trip. It's such an awesome place for the money I feel like it's a secret so don't tell anyone.

Get ready to relax! I've been going here for years. It really is an excellent value for the money. My favorite thing about this gem is the amazing landscaping that surrounds the courtyard. Centered in the courtyard amongst the lush, green well groomed landscape is one of the biggest, deepest pools I've ever enjoyed at a hotel. The hot tub is probably double the size of an average hot tub and has a large beautiful waterfall behind it.

I could probably write a 10 page review citing stories of our 100% positive experiences here. Because I'm sure you've got better things to do I'll just hit on some major points...

This motel is quiet, clean, has an amazing pool/Jacuzzi area, and incredible, friendly staff. The local PD stays visible in the area which seems to keep this motel feeling extremely safe. We will definitely be back again!

The Rose Garden Inn is a great alternative to travelers searching for a budget motel.
If you are just looking for a nice place to rest for a night or two and do not require to be pampered, this is the place for you. The rooms are clean and the amenities are comparable to most mid-priced lodgings. The motel offers a very limited continental breakfast on site, but adjoining the property is a cafe which serves up traditional breakfast fare with portions that a lumberjack would appreciate. The property lives up to its name surrounded by rosebushes which were all in bloom and well tended by a full-time gardener. According to its website, this motel also has a spa with waterfalls and its rooms were recently remodeled.
