Very cute, cozy, nice staff, breakfast bar had all the goodies, the only complaint would be the very thin walls, I could hear our neighbors talking. Other than that we would stay here again.

If you have a high-tolerance for a bit of shabby, and a property that is quirky, this charming boutique hotel will delight you. Rooms are contained in three separate buildings, and one is an old turn-of-the-century house. We originally were assigned a small room in that building, which would have been fine for our one-night stay except the walls are thin and our neighbors were non-stop loud. The staff responded to our request for a quieter room quickly, and for $10 we were given a more spacious, quiet room in a building constructed in the 1970s. The breakfast was a refreshing change from the fare at most chains. Mounds of freshly cooked sausage/bacon, real scrambled eggs, perfectly ripened melon, a variety of breads and pastries, eaten in a cheerful dining room or out in the lovely California sun surrounded by the beautiful rose gardens. We will return next time we are in Berkeley.

Our room was comfy, roomy & freshly painted, carpeted, etc. The breakfast was complete but buffet style so early is best. Coffee & tea available all day. The grounds are very funky but after awhile they become part of the charm as this is a very old piece of property. If you like modern sleekness this is not your hotel.

This is a quaint and cute place with a lovely garden. Staff is great. Breakfast is passable and could be a whole lot better. Everything could use a major deep cleaning since it is old. The location is great, parking was easy - everything was easy and pretty pleasant.

Absolutely terrible if you want quiet. You can actually hear the street light on the corner beeping all night. Hotel guests checking in at 1:00 am dragging suitcases up the 3 flights of stairs waking up the entire house. Noisy Noisy Noisy. And let's face it, old. There is charm and quaintness and then there's just old. Never again.

Although this hotel was nice, it did have some small problems. It seemed to me that the room that I stayed in needed some attention to fine detail. 1. The plumbing in the bathroom needed attention, sink did not drain well, shower head adjustment did not work, toilet made a whistling sound after being flushed and the tank was being refilled. All these items were very annoying. 2. The room heater needed attention, it was very loud and sounded as if the fan to blow the air needed oiling. 3. Although the breakfast was very flavorfull, I did find that the smoke from cooking the bacon sasauge and potatos was entering the serving and dining area, which left me and my clothes smelling like such. Again, very annoying to have to go to work smelling like this. 4. The parking lot was fenced in and did have a gate on the fencing, however I did not like the fact that there was a big hole in the asphalt which was full of dirt and caused much more dust to blow around than normal. 5. The security of the rooms and common areas was questionable. The door keys looked to be outdated, there was no real secure lock on the main entry door. I went jogging at 5:00 am, and upon returning I found I was locked out. 6. This hotel did have a very "at home" feeling to it, but because of the small incidentals, I don't think I would stay there again.

Quirky and friendly! The staff are great. Easy location, very convenient. The only hitch is their somewhat haphazard maintenance work. Everything is safe enough, it's just a bit on the "that's good enough" side. Regardless, I would happily stay there again.

I really enjoyed my two-night stay at the Rose Garden. Second business trip to Berkeley and I think I will use it again rather than to opt for a big chain hotel. One of the rooms definitely needed paint touch-up and the facility is Victorian and retrofitted in some places. But a fireplace in my room (true, with an electric switch that started the gas) was luxurious. The breakfast was great. A post-meeting glass of wine at a nearby French restaurant was a treat. A great bargain!

This is definitely an old hotel but very quaint. Do not go there if little things bother you - walls need a new coat of paint, walls are pretty thin, the decoration is very eclectic! However, our room was nice with a fireplace that was plenty warm. The breakfast was excellent and how lovely to hear a harpist as well!

We had a very pleasant stay at the Rose Garden Inn on a wet, blustery Berkeley weekend. The hotel was clean, quiet, and we felt like we got a great deal for the area. It's not fancy, by any stretch, but clean. Wifi was great. Breakfast was fine.

We couldn't stop saying "This place is just sooooo cute!" over and over again! Can't ask for anything more from a hotel really... Super friendly and helpful staff, comfortable and well maintained rooms, personal/family feeling of atmosphere, great free breakfast, close to the happenings on Telegraph but far enough away to be able to escape, quiet, beautiful grounds. It's not the newest hotel, but the personal touches and shabby chic-ness make it even BETTER than staying at the Ritz!

I love quirky little independent hotels and B&B's, however the Rose Garden Inn is truly special. This is my third stay in as many years. It is very centrally located for anything anyone would want to do in Berkeley. It has all the amenities you'll need---free wireless, great breakfast comfy, quirky rooms. What makes this place shine is the staff. I'm not sure if it's just Berkeley but every, single person I've interacted with is simply delightful---appropriately friendly, genuinely helpful. Love this place. Only downside is some accessibility challenges is you are off the ground floor, typical for massive, old Victorian houses. What gives it charm makes it a bit less convenient for all comers. Well worth the quirkiness.

Stayed here before and found it a pleasant change from a hotel. More relaxed and friendly. I would like to have had more home-made style options in the breakfast rather than those stock commercial pastries- I liked the fresh cookies and available tea or coffee later in the day.

Wir haben zum nunmehr fünften Mal im Rose Garden in Berkeley gewohnt und sind immer noch sehr angetan. Dies liegt an der besonderen Atmosphäre und dem leckeren Frühstücksbuffet genaus so wie am netten und hilfsbereiten Personal ( mit dem man auch über das Zimmer "verhandeln" kann ) und dem köstlichen Duft, den die beiden großen Trompetenblüten-"bäume" verströmen.

クレモントホテルのイベントで、部屋がとれなかたので、近くの宿と思い2泊しました。アメリカの田舎の宿といった風情で、部屋に暖炉もあり、スタッフもフレンドリー、いい宿です。ただ、きれいに維持されているものの、施設が古く、暖房は、スイッチをいれてから3分くらいでブ~ンという音とともに動き出すという感じです。最寄駅から歩くと30分で不便で、ビジネスユースとしては無理があります。ネットは無料ですが、頻繁に切れ、タイミングによっては接続に5分ほどかかり、実用になりません。CVSと24時間営業じゃないセブンイレブン(コンビニ)が歩いて5分、朝食もアメリカンブレクファストのボリューム満点ですから、ファミリーユース、かつレンタカーありなら、許容範囲でしょう。

Vi boede 2 gange 2 nætter på hotellet. I start og slut af vores rejse. Begge gange i hovedbygningen. Nuttet hotel men meget små værelser. Nærmest London størrelse og langt fra nyrenoveret. Men rent og pænt. Venligt og hjælpsomt personale. Og en dejlig morgenmads buffet med bl.a. æg, pølser og bacon. Vi vender nok tilbage en anden gang.

"Good atmosphere "
04/27/15 Pavel_PP Moscow, Russia
Went to Berkeley for reunion, stayed in this hotel. The place is classic, charming and has a lot of nice roses. Service was good, we had some minor complain about housekeeping but nothing serious. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and I can recommend the place.

"Clean and friendly; limited parking"
03/26/15 skolding Austin, Texas
I decided to give this place a try because most of the negative reviews seemed pre-renovation, and I'm glad I did! Room was exceptionally quiet and dark, got a great night sleep. Staff are extremely helpful and setting is quaint. Breakfast is one of the better ones I've seen for free. Best for people traveling without cars, although they do have free spaces just not tons of them - it is the Bay Area after all. I would stay here again.

We stayed one night so to be close to family and the University. A lovely inn with a great breakfast. Our room was reasonable in price ($179 + taxes) and very clean. A B&B type room with bathroom and sitting area. Lots of stairs if that's a problem although the lower level has ramps.

"Small hotel, big punch!"
03/11/15 Manuel S Los Angeles, California
I booked my stay through a travel site and expected a so-so experience but was I wrong. After calling and being guided to their parking area, I was buzzed in. The hotel has a small, nice feel to it. The office is hard to find without signage at night but the hotel manager Jerimiah was great! He greeted me, gave me a few spots to grab a bite to eat and even gave me one of the best rooms I've ever stayed in! This room is like a small apartment with fire place and two areas to hang out outside. The place is a hidden gem and recommend to anyone in Berkeley or nearby cities. I will be back when I travel to Northern Cali.

The hotel itself is gorgeous, especially with the courtyard. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. However, what really made our stay was the impeccable service! I will absolutely stay here every time I am in the area!

"An Old Gem"

I stayed in the wrap-around King Suite for 2 nights when I recently had surgery in Oakland. I booked online - be sure to do that, as you will save yourself a lot of money! Online the price was $159 for the first night, and $189 for the second (a Friday) - the lady at the front desk quoted me $225/night when I called ): Not sure why the discrepancy. Anyway, the suite itself was quite lovely - big bay window w/window seat and lots of cushions, gas fireplace to take the chill off in the morning, and a very pretty stained glass window above the twin bed. My king-size bed was very luxurious and comfy. In this room, the sink is outside the bathroom which I don't really like. The room is on the second floor, and overlooks a busy street - could hear traffic noise at times, but not to the point that it bothered me. Garden is very pretty - I'd love to go back and see it in the spring/summer. Huge Datura trees, camellias, roses, etc., and pretty fountains, and wrought iron furniture all add to the charm. Breakfast is a bonus - same every morning, but good if you're just staying a couple of days like I was - sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs, "freezer" waffles, bagels, toast, fresh pineapple, dry cereals, and the usual assortment of jams, etc. Service is very good at the Rose Garden Inn. Some people might not care for the "musty" smell of the old buildings, but you get used to it after awhile. Mostly just noticed it in the foyer, or hallways - not in the suite itself. Windows open, so you can get all the fresh air you like. Just a matter of blocks from a lovely Whole Foods Market, which has lots of take-out options. Close to both surgeons I saw, and in a direct line to the Surgery Centre in Oakland - not far at all, and very convenient. A great place to recuperate after surgery. I would definitely stay there again, and would recommend it to others.

"Overpriced"
01/20/15 caffreb Dublin, Ireland
Very expensive for what you get. The room was a little weird. There was little to no natural light. There was a second bed which was at a different level to the main bed. It was just taking up space really and the room would have been nicer without it. The surfaces had a bit of a shabby finish. Overall the room was ok. The bathroom was big but the window looked out over the garden and the blind didn't go down the full way. I wasn't bothered too much but I guess some people would be. The price was ~700 dollars for 3 nights. Not worth the price unless you are looking for a somewhat B&B style thing, I was not. On that note the breakfast was ok if a little lukewarm. They did offer homemade complimentary cookies which were nice.

"B&B in Berkeley"
10/25/14 Jeff R Sacramento, California
We stayed here for one night to attend a Jimmy Buffet concert at the Greek Theater in October. The Rose Garden Inn is on a good sized piece of Berkeley property in a complex of quaint buildings with several room choices. The web site is well organized and provides valuable information in that regard. There is limited parking on site. We arrived at check in time and found a spot. Then, afterwards we realized there was a second lot on the other side of the property that was mostly empty. Check in was a breeze, the friendly staff showed us to our rooms and answered our questions. Wi-Fi worked well and our queen fireplace room was very comfortable. As with most B&Bs there are always little issues of ongoing maintenance, but nothing serious. Our porch light didn't work. No real problem. The grounds were well maintained and the place had a cozy airy belonging feeling about it. The property sign said "Welcome Home" and it felt like it. Grounds were accessible to guests only via key card. A nice security feature. Fresh homemade cookies in the afternoon and an incredible full buffet in the morning with plenty of pretty much anything you could want for breakfast; bacon, sausage, eggs, toast, waffles, biscuits, bagels, cereals, toast, muffins, sweet breads, fruit, juice and coffee. Yum. We stayed in room 408 and asked if it might get a little noisy in the morning with a day care facility next door. Not to worry - the understanding day care folks keep the little ones inside until 10:00 a.m. Never heard them. All and all, this is a wonderful place to stay in Berkeley and we'll likely stay here again.

"Nice and quiet!"

A lovely building with many different houses and a beautiful garden with flowering trees and fragrant roses. This is located on Telegraph Avenue near the center of downtown. We chose a cozy room with a fireplace and it was so romantic. The breakfast was ok with eggs, bacon and good coffee. I would love to stay here again.
