Positive Reviews

Historical property with plenty of charm.

Set in an historic mansion, Rose Garden Inn is said to offer plenty of charm and character. Past guests have enjoyed the classical Victorian approach to furnishings and décor.

Garden and terraces ideal for relaxing.

Many guests enjoy nothing more than taking the time to sit and relax in the hotel's pleasing gardens and terraces. Featuring picturesque flowers and shrubbery, guests report that these surroundings are ideal for those seeking a little peace and quiet.

Convenient to UC Berkeley.

Rose Garden Inn is just over half a mile from the campus of the University of California, Berkeley. This location makes it a convenient choice for university visitors, including those attending events at California Memorial Stadium or The Greek Theatre.

Negative Reviews

Signs of wear within bedrooms.

While historic charm is one of the selling points of Rose Garden Inn, guests report that parts of the hotel are showing signs of age, and not in a good way. Outdated beds, loud plumbing, dirty carpets and worn tiling are some of the hotel's shortcomings, according to past guests.

Some rooms are compact and over furnished.

Reports would suggest that some of the hotel's guestrooms are on the small side. While the compact size of these rooms alone is probably not too much of a hindrance, guests report that these rooms can also be over furnished, leaving little room to maneuver.

Impersonal front desk employees.

Past guests have been critical of the hotel's front desk employees, describing them as impersonal and sometimes standoffish. Some guests even report that employees do not even offer a greeting upon arrival.
