We recently stayed at the Berkeley Guest House for our Daughter's UC Berkeley Graduation. The Guest House was perfect - very clean and fairly new. The views were spectacular of the SF Bay and the staff was very accommodating and nice. Our room was a bit small, but the bed was comfy. We recommend the Berkeley Guest House to anyone... More

I stayed here for two nights for a conference at Cal and loved the serene hilltop view that I would drive to and from. The rooms weren't huge but had all the comfort and functionality that was needed for a basic hotel stay. What really drives this 5 star review is the level of service I received, even after my...

We were visiting our daughter who attends Berkeley and booked a studio queen for one night. I was looking forward to staying here due the reviews and fantastic view of the city and campus that I had heard about. The room we got was a good size being handicap accessible. But one problem with this is that there was no... More

This place is a real hidden gem. Located just above Cal's Memorial Stadium, with fantastic views of the U.C. Berkeley campus, the San Francisco Bay, the Bay Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, and San Francisco itself, this is a great place to stay if you are visiting the U.C. Berkeley campus or anywhere nearby. I understand that only people with... More

This place is the best kept secret in the Bay Area. a quiet, safe haven while spending time in the East Bay, Even though the Guest House is separate from the City, you are only a five minute drive to the University of California, Berkeley and great restaurants and shops in Berkeley. also it is a quick drive to the...

I was attending meetings at Berkeley Lab, so the location was perfect. The rooms are basic, but extremely clean. The staff is friendly. The LBL cafeteria is nearby. There is a shuttle that runs from the BART station to right outside the hotel. I managed to arrive too late and took a cab for about $8.00. I had to direct... More

After my experience of staying at this wonderful place, I would not even try another place. It is safe, very clean, staff are nice, accommodating and friendly...Views from where the Guest House sits is just Priceless. You also get free coffee and tea, free parking & you can even do your own laundry if needed. Another bonus is the free... More

Feel so smart just being around the Science buildings of UC Berkeley. Great view of San Francisco Bay and sunsets over the city and bridges. Door noises a little loud but rest of buildings new tidy and has a calm feeling.

Out of the way location but perfect if your trip takes you to the Berkeley Lab area. The views of the bay and San Francisco are outstanding and the weekday lab buses run every 10 minutes down to the center of Berkeley. The staff are friendly and low key and the rooms are serviceable.

Very nice and clean guest house with excellent view of Berkeley and the bay. Yes it is farther up from Cal, so best if you have car, especially if you want to spend evening in the city. No tax and parking is free, great value! Also they stocked their shelf with food (for sale), such as salad, fruit, even ramen... More
