Eww. Eww. Eww. Filthy and smelly! Stay away!!!
Went to a wedding nearby and decided to book a room for the night. Rose Garden Inn was one of the few hotels that had availability that night. After skimming through the reviews and pictures I decided to book our stay. The place looked dated on pictures but had good cleanliness reviews. We checked in and the attendant was pretty friendly and nice, probably the only thing this place has going for them. Check in took about 5 minutes. The hallway leading to our room was clean but reeked of cigarette smoke. Gross. The minute we opened our door I had instant regrets. The room reeked of mold. The carpet was dirty, door knobs were dirty and crusty. Light switches were dirty. Even the remote control was nasty. There was a broken sofa that was also dirty. My husband opened the curtains to look outside and those were dusty as heck! The beds. Omg. So effing nasty. We used our wedding dresses as blankets. I stayed up past midnight contemplating on whether we should just make the almost 4 hr drive home or go sleep in our car. I guess I was too tired and ended up knocking out. We woke up and bounced at 6am. ✌️ I should mention they ask for a $100 deposit when you check in. Like seriously, deposit for what? You can’t wreck a place that is already wrecked and nobody is trying to steal anything from this cruddy place. Also, we’re going on a week and I still have NOT received my deposit back.

This room was so dirty and unacceptable that I could not stay in the room. I left and checked into a new hotel, and I was unable to get a refund from my reservation at the Rose Garden Inn. There is no management to talk to, or get a callback from. This hotel is terrible.

Decent stay for reasonable cost
We stayed for overnight only, stairway was in really bad condition but room was clean, large, good beds & updated, a/c was old and seemed to be struggling, nice staff.

4/10 Fair

Disappointing Stay
The renovations are good but they’re incomplete. The bathroom sink didn’t drain, the wall around the shower wasn’t painted, the fridge wasn’t defrosted and was full of ice, there were holes in the sheets and blanket, and there was no screen door on the sliding door. The construction debris is piled up in the parking lot next to the front office which is unattractive and unsafe for kids. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had to call the front desk both nights of our stay due to loud, obnoxious neighbors above us at 2 and 3 am. The front desk staff managed the situation both times. This motel can and should do better. It has the opportunity to turn the place from shabby to chic but it will take more than replacing old carpet with vinyl flooring and installing new bathroom fixtures into old bathrooms.
