Worst hotel experience ever

Pros: Pool and hot tub
Cons: Everything else
Location: Crappy location next to the freeway but within good driving distance of wineries, downtown and hiking trails
Given the price I paid (around $160 per night), this was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. It was dirty and the staff were not professional. I had to wait 10 minutes for someone to show up to check me in. My room wasn't very clean when I arrived: moldy shower curtain, questionably clean bed linens, ripped and dirty carpet, dirty bathroom floor, dirty sliding glass doors etc ... When asked if I could move rooms, I was told no because they were fully booked but indeed they were not fully booked for the duration of my stay. The pool and hot tub are nice but everything else is horrible.

Hotel is an older property with dated furnishings and fixtures. Front desk is not staffed 7/24. Had to wait until someone showed up at 6:30 a.m. to check-out. Continental breakfast consists of packaged danish and stale coffee.

We apologize, the desk is fully staffed 24/7 now, at the time of your stay we were very under staffed and had to lock the desk and forward the calls. You could have just left a note to have a receipt emailed. But that is no longer an issue.

Good for the money

This is a standard budget hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the area was quiet. We were on our way from one place to another and this place was good for an overnight stay at a budget price. I would stay here again.

The Rose Garden Inn was fine for our overnight stay on a trip to Southern California. If we were staying in San Luis Obisbo for more than one night we would've chosen another property. It was very basic, which was fine for the price, but I was not wowed by it. It was just ok.

Stay Elsewhere

Staff friendly; facilities outdated and in need of repair; dirty hallways and ceilings; poor attention to detail. I won't be staying there again.

Great Location and a value

Pros: Location A+
Cons: Overall old facility that needs to be revamped
Location: Brilliant location, close to downtown and off the freeway
What can I say, the staff was friendly and the room was clean, that's it. Its cheap and a place to lay your head on a road trip. You get free coffee and internet.
