My husband called the hotel to confirm that they had a 1 bedroom suite and not a studio suite. We were reassured that the suite is a 1 bedroom and arrived to find it was not. There was no door between the rooms. It was a studio suite which we had told them when booking we did not want. Negatives... More

The hotel exterior was nice. The lobby furniture was in poor condition, as was the weight machine in the exercise room. The maintenance in the rooms certainly left a bit to be desired. However, the beds are very comfortable and the breakfast staff was very friendly and courteous. Overall, I would say the experience was average.

Rooms are dated and need an update. Beds are comfortable and AC works well. Customer service was okay. Could have been better. Breakfast was awesome. Parking seemed a little short and neighborhood was a little dirty.

I was very disappointed in the housekeeping staff. Communication a big problem. We stayed for a week, and service I would not even rate a 1 out of 5 for the housekeeping services provided. And the little that was provided had to be asked, even getting trashed emptied. The front desk staff very helpful and informative. I would not recommend... More

This is an aged hotel. Not wanting to dissect it but the decor is right out of the 1970's. The rooms are clean and quiet. The hotel is no frills. It is not luxury. Having said that I used the fitness room and it was functional. Many kids used the swimming pool and they clearly wet having fun. I appreciated... More

Best Things: location, linens, air conditioner, people at the desk. Bad: location. Berkeley seems to foster the weird. This property is in serious decline. The common areas are dirty, the elevator is a filthy, smelly closet and makes strange sounds, dimly lit. The room was semi clean...looked like the areas around the walls had Never been vacuumed...large food particles around... More

Went back three times in two days to front desk to claim item. All three times was told that it was locked up and that no one was available... More

We stayed 3 nights at this Hotel as part of the start of our West Coast road trip (2 childhood friends). The rooms are descent and clean, big enough and the 2 queen size beds where great. The carpet of the general hallway was dirty but we didnt really care. The location was perfect for us. A short trip over... More
