I read the reviews before I booked and this is what I recommend: 1) one of the reviews noted the neighborhood and I agree it isn't the best hornet it isn't the worst either. It would be nice if they closed the north gate after 10PM and monitored the entrance which would add to the sense of security. However our... More

This is an older hotel that has been remodeled. I had problems with the front desk staff upon checking in while asking for an upgrade. Then I was unable to procure any washcloths for my stay. However the manager on duty, Joy, was very helpful and resolved my problems during my stay.

NEVER again will I stay here. I wouldn't even allow my greatest enemy to stay here. We stayed here for a conference my husband had to attend. During the stay one of the ballrooms was rented out for a party. 3 people ended up being shot during an altercation at said party. We had police pounding on our door at... More

hotel is well located but is in need of an upgrade, staff tried to be helpful when we had problems but hotel is noisy and breakfast hours ended too early. Did not get room requested on check in. Had to move twice. Could hear AC from next room which made sleeping difficult.

The most comfortable beds we can remember. The last time was years ago in Vienna Austria. The location is perfect for visiting family and with our dogs. Very important to have our dogs with us without a problem.

Unfortunately, I am now only rating this property as 2 stars because it appears general maintenance has been slipping lately. For example, when I stayed here before the ice machine on the 3rd floor was out of order. OK. I came back to stay 2 months later and the same ice machine was STILL out of order. I expect more...

Perhaps it has new management, but when I first stayed here in November of 2013 I found the staff to be friendly and efficient and the room, though nothing special, was clean and well appointed. I stayed again in January of 2014 and it didn't have quite the same feel as my first visit. The staff was no longer friendly... More

Way too loud, couldn't sleep and very shabby. Needs better maintenance and lots of updating to the rooms. Nice people working there, very nice and helpful. Unfortunately, the rooms are not even average. Shower was low flow to save water, but, water pours out of bath spout instead. Poor maintenance. Location is ok

This is convenient for a business stay provided that you have a car. Not far from downtown Berkeley and University (about 10 mn). Very close to the highway access. Wifi is good. The breakfast is basic but convenient. The outdoor pool is small but very nice.
