I spent a week at Spruce Canyon this past June and loved it. The décor is unique and multi-cultural, eccentric but tidy. I could walk out the back door from the deck and pick fresh plums from a plum tree for breakfast. The environment was quaint and peaceful. The property owner was gracious and helpful in terms of suggesting nearby... More

After a day, I finally came to the conclusion staying there is like staying in a closed junk shop. A hoarders paradise. So much stuff a flashlight is provided to make it to the bathroom to a toilet that doesn't flush. Back door dead bolt doesn't work. I thought the back garden would be empty but unfortunately it was as... More

I am sorry your experience was not what you had hoped for but I feel that I described the apartment honestly on the telephone prior to your stay and judging from the other reviews, most of our guests are quite happy here. Some have become regular visitors and some have even asked to buy items that they loved in the... More

we visited berkeley as our daughter has recently relocated there. in fact she found the place for us. Initially we were a bit reluctant as we usually stay in a hotel,but spruce canyon was walking distance from our daughters apt. and we decided to give it a shot. The on line reviews also made us feel comfortable with our decision.... More

Recently I stayed in what was for me a Berkeley apt that would allow me to cook a breakfast and be on my way to meet with friends in the area. So interesting to read such positive reviews of this place which makes me wonder at my overall mind set. I have traveled world wide as well as many times... More

I was surprised by this response as the guest gave me the impression that she was enjoying her stay here. I went out of my way to help her and even made time to drive her to her relative's home several times, at no charge. More

I am not a person who likes to stay in B&B's - too much lace, scented potpourri, pseudo-Victorian furnishings and such. Not my thing. It was a delight to find Spruce Canyon in North Berkeley! The lower level of a stunning Berkeley Craftsman in a fabulous close-in neighborhood within walking distance of the Rose Garden, UC Berkeley campus, and the... More

The previous two reviews just about say it all. As I was sitting by the fireplace,covered with a soft lap robe, listening to Bach on the CD player, sipping my chilled white wine and reading one of Ana's wonderful books, I realized you can go home again. I hadn't stayed in Berkeley since student days many years ago. The apartment... More

Spruce Canyon is an amazing place. My husband and I spent six days there on a trip I took to check locations for a novel about Berkeley. I chose Spruce Canyon for its location, within walking distance of the university and all points around Cal. Spruce Canyon is a large open space, with a wonderful queen sized bed, several sofas,...

Simply put, I can't recommend Spruce Canyon more highly. My family lives in the Bay Area and I visit, on average, every four or five months. Over the years, I've stayed in many of the B&B-type accommodations in Berkeley, and have been favorably impressed with most of them. Then, in the summer of 2005, I found Spruce Canyon. Now, I...
