After having spent many nights at this hotel as a visitor I now live in Berkeley. Last night I went to the bar for a beer and to watch the Giants vs Dodgers baseball game. Ordered a beer and watched the game for about half an hour. Asked to pay my tab and handed the bartender a ten dollar bill.... More

This hotel was a find. San Francisco hotels were too expensive due to a conference so we decided to stay in nearby Berkeley at the Shattuck. It was the right choice. Rooms were clean and modern and all of the staff very nice and helpful. Crossing the bridge into SF was a bit of a chore due to traffic. But... More

Dear Arista1956, Thank you for review on Trip Advisor! I am happy to hear you enjoyed your recent visit with us - Traffic can be a bit hectic on the bridge - next time I would suggest using the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) if it works in conjunction with the area of San Francisco you are going to.

We stayed at the Hotel Shattuck 1 night after a trip to Napa. Our flight home the next afternoon was from the Oakland airport. We had never been to Berkeley before and thought we would use our short time there to explore the area vs staying at an airport hotel. We were greeted by a very cheerful and friendly doorman... More

The location of the hotel (across the street from the Downtown Berkeley BART station) makes it easy to get to, but also keeps things pretty noisy throughout most of the night. Earplugs are a must to drown out the street noise, musicians, and just general busyness of the neighborhood. That said - the hotel is beautifully decorated and the service... More

We stayed at this hotel since we had to attend a wedding nearby in Berkeley and was recommended by the bride. Check-in was swift but I could not say the same about getting to our room… the hotel is huge! There were so many rooms on a floor and we finally got to ours after making a few turns. The... More

Would have given 4or 5 stars but for this one thing- the auto light in the bathroom, coupled with a pretty but ultimately problematic glass door. See, I came here for a good night's sleep after dealing with a stressful situation with my child who's a Cal student. Hotel is lovely, staff is friendly, food is great, beds are comfy,... More

As noted this part of Berkeley near the campus is typical urban college town seedy. But the location is great. A few minutes walk to the campus, right next to the BART station make it accessible from both airports and easy ride to downtown San Francisco. Starbucks is around the corner for morning coffee. Rooms are small not European small... More
