We weren't expecting too much.... we did want a simple, quaint, convenient location near UC Berkeley. We did get that, but did not expect the extremely poor service of the desk staff. After specifying our dates, and booking the room well in advance, we were shocked to be presented with a fee well above what we had agreed to. All... More

When I called to book a room, the operator was extremely rude and asked personal questions which had nothing to do with my stay there. When I asked to speak with the manager, I was told I was speaking with the owner, after which he said, "Don't come here if you can't afford it. We only allow a certain caliber... More

First off I don't understand how they can charge over $100 on a room that should be more like $50 and please don't let the pictures fool you. Me my boyfriend and our 7month old son had a room on the 3rd floor. No help at all, had to carry our bags and stroller all the way up to the... More

As an international journalist I have been to 102 countries. This is the worst hotel experience ever. And in San Francisco, the most beautiful city in the world! I wanted to stay in the Berkeley area, because I was doing an interview with a professor at Berkeley. The hotels webpage is a complete falsification. The hotel was a dump. Since... More

I will start by saying I have not stayed here. I tried. I booked a room online a month and a half before my stay, partial payment was charged to my c/c, received the email confirmation and even received a call from Roger at Beau Sky to confirm the reservation. Fast forward to today, two weeks before my trip, and... More

It's hard to figure out why some reviews rate this hotel higher than terrible. The pictures shown in the website are NOTHING, like the real thing. In reality the place is old, not very well maintained, extremelly smelly, bad serviced and we spotted a cockroach. Our room was never made, and the manager was never around. Id agree that if...

Stayed two nights: The location is great but that is the only positive thing I can say. The bed was so old it sagged in the middle, the blanket was just a pilled, old & nasty. The window in the room could not be closed due to a makeshift screen. This was a problem because the exhaust & smells from... More

I read the reviews before booking our room and admit I was a bit worried. Quickly realized that the people who don't like this hotel need more than most of us. The room was fine, location is great, and the food is awesome. We loved our stay and will go back.

Was in town for my sister-in-law's Cal soccer game. Found Beau Sky online, looked at a few reviews which seemed pretty good, and the location looked good on a map, so I booked it. Got about 3 hours of sleep all night. The stench of curry permeates every inch of the hotel (from the Indian restaurant on the ground floor).... More
