“Acceptable!”
Reviewed October 21, 2004

I stayed here one night because it was the cheapest I could find in Santa Maria on a weekend night. It was clean, the desk staff were friendly, and although we didn't use it the pool looked nice. I also agree with another review that the roses were lovely. The room was plain, no headboards or art in the room, and it was run down. The television was small, but there were plenty of channels to pick from (I think it was satellite). The bathroom had a stand-up shower which was clean, but the paint was worn out...my sister said it was a decent shower. Overall the room was spacious and I can't complain other than cosmetics. Lastly, we had wanted to use the hot tub, but the jets were not working. If you just need a place to sleep it's okay.

The Rose Garden Inn is a basic motel close enough to Pismo Beach to enjoy the attractions there. It's also close to Highway 101, but you cannot hear or see it.
It has a nice pool and two tennis courts, and the rooms were clean and comfortable, though the interior features are clearly aging, and some minor stuff was in disrepair. We stayed during the week (Sun-Thu), and starting Monday, the facility was full of what looked like contractors on overnight stay, some probably sharing a room, but arriving with multiple cars. A side effect of this was that there was no parking left if you arrived from dinner after 7pm, and lots of male energy in the parking lot in the evenings. My wife and teenage daughters felt uncomfortable around these folks.
They have a big sign on 101 advertising a rate of $39.99 for Sun-Thu stays (add $20 in July and August).

We booked a room on-line at $59/night, but the receptionist (the owner?) insisted to charge us $69/night. We showed him the printed e-mail reservation letter, but he disregarded it and asked us to contact the booking agent.

There was a refrigerator in the room but no microwave, though the receptionist said there should be one.

The carpet was dirty and we had to keep our shoes on. The shower/washroom looks out-dated and dirty.

The appearance of the hotel looks good.
