This place was OK, considering it was Cal-Poly graduation weekend. If it had just been renovated, I was hard pressed to see it. Our bathroom fixtures were not in good repair. The walls are very thin and it is noisy. The bed was comfortable and I was happy to find the coffee in the check in area. The staff was...

Considering the $80 price per night you cant go wrong! Nice staff, clean rooms, great pool, close to Pirates Cove, a local make-out for the teenagers, Hearst Castle, Madonna Inn. On Thursday the "downtown" shuts down its street for a great street fair of local fare!

We've stayed here twice in the past year. It's an older hotel, but the rooms are clean and comfortable. All rooms have a flat screen TV, small fridge, microwave and blow dryer. There is free WiFi, although our experience was that it was reliable about 50% of the time. No coffee maker in the room, but there is free coffee...

We stayed at the Rose Garden Inn for one night on our drive up the PCH. It is an old and a bit run down hotel but fit the basic needs of an overnight stay. The bed was surprisingly comfortable but the sheets and comforter were very old and had holes. I think it is time to invest in some...

We've stayed here multiple times over the past few years when visiting our daughter at Cal Poly. It's very reasonable priced and has always been clean and comfortable. A little older but we've been consistently happy with it!
