We were in town for our state boards me and 2 other girls. Weren't looking for super luxurious hotel just something we could afford. We arrived at 5 pm after an 8 hour drive from redding, ca and the room was not ready! Check in was at 3! Was not happy. Finally after 20 minutes of waiting for the room...

We were traveling down from San Francisco and tried to avoid staying in a big city. This hotel was worth its money. It was decent, quiet, extremely close to the high way and clean. If you wanna have a luxury stay, do not choose this hotel. We chose it to be quickly back on the road, and again: that's absolutely...

Looks are very deceiving, the outside gives you a pleasant feeling. You walk in to your room and all that changes. Filth, poor maintenance, and extremely old furniture, beds, linens, fixtures and carpet. Would not recommend to anyone. Please do not stay here.

We arrived late and were given a "smokers room" As this was the last family room, we did some serious venting, and it was ok. But the room was horrible. Wet and damp patches in the bathroom, even big holes around the tub. Carpet was very stained and not clean at all. The mattresses were disgusting, in daylight we realised...

Came into Santa Maria for a wedding. Other places were booked that we wanted to stay, buy if I could turn back time I would have either paid more to stay in town or booked at a nearby town. I booked a king bed and got a queen. We told him we had a small dog at the time of...

This hotel is old and shows it. The ice machine looks like you could catch something from it. The carpet was stained everywhere, the bathroom had a smell of wet dog, the bed was fine however the sheets were flat sheets wrapped around the bottom mattress. The a/c unit was not on when we arrived in June, so it was...

I and several ladies stayed at this motel in the middle of January 2013. I can only speak for myself about this Inn. The bathroom was horrible. Inside the shower, ( the door could not be closed ) there was rust all around where old fixtures had once been mounted and caulking around seams did not even begin to cover...

The Rose Garden is a terrible motel. We checked in at 4pm and were in a hurry to see family at an assisted living home. We got back at 10pm to shower and sleep only to find the shower did not work as the handle would not turn the valve stem. As we looked about the room, the floor had...

We had picked this hotel for the low price and low pet fee. Room was decent. It was raining that evening so all night we had to listen the rain dripping on the gutter pipe, which sounded like a coffee pot brewing coffee. The shower had no hot water, we ran the water for over 20 minutes with no change...

I was on my own, having dropped my daughter off at college in LA, and wanted a day in a new wine country. It was price and location which dictated my choice of this hotel which is just off the 101 Fwy in the charming town of Santa Maria in central California (population about 100K). I paid under $70 with...
