The Fay building was from like 1902 and it was super cool to stay in the attic. Felt clean and the bed was cool. Old time furniture and a cool hang out vibe
The couch was a little sat out. That could have been a bit better
Cleanliness, comfort and location are big pluses
A little lower price
In an overbooked area, ok option.
Friendly staff and convenient location
Not good value for money. Rooms are partially renovated and feel worn. Breakfast was not as good as a Holiday Inn. And for $300/night, I expect a little better.
Audible Berkeley Trip with the boys and girl
Room was really big for the price! Loved the vibe of the place and the location was perfect! Breakfast was delicious!
Super relaxed in the middle of city chaos....thank you
Quaint, comfortable, affordable hotel in Berkeley!
The Rose Garden Inn is exactly as advertised on its website: it is a peaceful, quaint "village" style hotel -- a nice place to come home to. It is protected by a security fence and has off-street, complementary (not protected) parking. The staff is super friendly. Our room had a king-size bed and a king-size sofa bed. The furniture is not new, and there was a clothes-iron burn on the carpet -- it was like coming home! You can hear the people in the room above the same way you can hear them when you are home, but we stayed in an expensive hotel in San Francisco last night, and people were yelling in the hallway in the middle of the night -- really, you depend on people to be polite. And you have to relax about it. Coffee in the room, microwave, box fan, luggage rack, fridge, and a gas FIREPLACE! The room was not bright like a Hampton Inn or a Holiday Inn, but it was cozy, low price, spacious, and clean. I come to town frequently to visit my Mom, and I'll be staying here again.
I really loved the place. It's quaint and gorgeous and a very serene setting. I was doing business at UC Berkeley and was able to walk from to the university. It is not as sterile as other hotels and has a lot of character. The rooms are a little small but were fine for what I was looking for. The price was right and it is overall a very pleasant place to stay. If I ever venture back into Berkeley I already know where I'm staying.
I didn't have a microwave or refrigerator in my room but I had access to a microwave in the lobby and was able to keep my beer cold with ice.
Relaxing Small Inn with great food
Staff was friendly and helpful during check in. Breakfast was great! Choose this option if you can. Freshly cooked sausage, bacon, and eggs among many other items. They also offered fresh baked cookies midday. Location was close to Oakland where we spent most of our time. Rooms were well kept. Wi-fi was good. Room service was delicious, but pricy (through an outside vendor).
A bit confusing to figure out where the main office/concierge was from the parking lot because the inn has many small buildings. I picked the wrong building at first. An arrow sign pointing to the concierge would have been nice. No AC, but there was an operational ceiling fan and open window are enough to cool the room. 2 small parking lots on either side of the property. Thankfully, we always found a spot.
Charming & quirky, with a few disappointments
The staff is friendly, welcoming, laid back, and very gracious. Our room (the Honeymoon Suite, I believe) was enormous and had some charm. It's great to be walking distance from campus, and to have offstreet parking (although we had to use street parking overnight 2 of our 4 nights at the Rose Garden Inn). Breakfast is very good -- although there's no change day-to-day, so it gets a little boring if you're staying multiple days.
The Rose Garden Inn is quirky & seems a little bit down on its heels. There was dust under the sink (which is in the room, not in the bathroom -- not even close to it) and there are places in & around the tub where the plaster suggests water leaks. Worse yet, untold thousands of gallons of water are wasted because the faucet & shower aren't water-conserving and the water just gushes out. And the difficulty sending a fax proved to be a problem for me. Our 3rd floor room was lovely, but too hot to spend much time in the bedroom during the day and early evening. The ceilings are high, so it would have been a challenge for some guests to negotiate the multiple flights of stairs to the third floor. The staff is lovely -- but, that said, the fax I sent myself (twice) finally arrived 2 days after I'd sent it; this should be an easy fix, but I'm not certain it will be. I'd stay here again, but it wouldn't necessarily be my first choice.
Charming old decor, great staff
Like staying in an old Victorian home. Surrounded by tended gardens , with a courtyard and airy breakfast room. My room had an old-fashioned appearance and a gas fireplace. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. location is great, a short walk from UC Berkeley.
Parking was a bit tight. My bathroom could have used an upgrade, but worked well.
A call from the front desk ten minutes before check-out to remind me when checkout was.
exterior stairs are uneven
Very nice and polite service.
Lack of a desk or a table and a strong-box in the room, thin walls - you can hear everything in other rooms, old equipment
Great breakfast and comfortable public room and desk staff.
Dirty facility. Disgusting filth behind bed which I found looking forvan outlet. The only outlet available in the bedroom was barely functional. Nothing stayed plugged in. The room made me want to sleep completely clothed. Ew.
pleasant welcome, nuce garden. good location
the room was small and poor. need urgent maintenance - nothing functioned.
Very friedly atmosphere. Great american breakfast.
centrally located, quiet, well run, comfortable bed, good breakfast, pleasant and helpful staff, nice garden
The location for our purpose
Wonderful room, helpful staff, relaxing atmosphere and beautiful surroundings.
The wireless connectiondid not work for me, but I still had Internetin my room, so no real problem.
Excellent breakfast. I recommend, and congratulate the hotel.
location. Breakfast. Cat. Staff.
floppy bed. Noisy guests above us who showered at 2am after walking up the very Creaky wood stair case. Loud water pipes when others use toilet or faucet for hand washing and showering.
