This seemed to be an easy choice for staying in Berkeley as a group , and sounded quite charming. The lobby was cozy and the breakfast was basic but OK. The room we got was a deluxe queen , I guess because there was a fire place there as well. However when we got to the building where the room...

We have stayed at the Rose Garden Inn several times before without any problems. In fact we liked the funkiness, location, price and convenient breakfast. All good until our last visit when we were met with a severe bedbug infestation. My wife got so many bites we nearly went to urgent care for medical attention. The manager comped us the...

I've stayed here twice while visiting my daughter at U California Berkeley. It's a real gem with a comfortable nastalgia and clean rooms. Breakfast buffet is average but reasonable. Within walking distance to campus. I enjoyed this place.

I stayed here for a night when my house was being worked on, and it was a nice break from my normal routine. The gardens are lovely. The room was a bit old, but functional. My room was facing the street, so there was some traffic noise which the rooms facing the inner courtyard would not have. Breakfast was adequate,...

Hotel is situated on the famous Telegraph Avenue, walking distance from the UC Berkeley campus, so if you visit the University, it’s one of the most convenient places with reasonable price. Hotel is composed by some small buildings with a beautiful garden in the center. Staff is very attentive and polite. Rooms are quit spacious but furniture is old and...

The Rose Garden Inn was like a mini estate situated in the middle of Berkeley. The room was not too small and was nicely appointed with a good queen sized bed and a properly amenitied shower. Parking seemed to be abundant but I still had to park at metered parking. The estate itself is well appointed though it is large...

Ok, kind of funky. Not quite as spic-n-span as I like; but definitely adequate. Nick, helped us check in and gave us dining suggestions. He was very hospitable. The location Is good if you are going to see UC Berkeley (for us close enough to walk).

During a road trip, we ended up in this inn. Some rooms are incredibly strange, and they have very old furniture, that probably belonged to the previous house owner. It was a fun and quirky experience. We enjoyed it. One morning, there was no hot water in the bathroom, but the personnel was very nice and promptly solved the problem...

Thank you very much for providing us with a review of your stay. We do have an unusual building, and, as you say, quirky furniture, but we are happy that you enjoyed your stay. The age and layout of our building can mean that hot water is slow to reach some rooms, but I am happy to hear that we...

What an awesome place to stay. It's a very old inn which is divided in cabins. Every individual cabin is a room. The whole place is just supercute and romantic. Some rooms have their own fire places (gas fired, on with the flip of a switch). The staff is helpful and friendly, breakfast is decent. When in Berkeley, don't even...
