I stayed here for two nights. The room was surprisingly nice. I know the hotel is a former Holiday Inn so I expected that it would need renovation. It had been nicely updated with modern furniture. The bed was very comfy. It had small fridge and a microwave. I was on the 6th floor and my room faced the bay.... More

We've stayed here a couple of times and have found the staff to be very friendly and most helpful. Not a lot of amenities-- but who needs them when you are on San Francisco's doorstep? I do not recommend this hotel IF you need absolute quiet because the highway is right outside and in the middle of the night it... More

The service is just EXCELLENT! Carlos at the Frint Desk is very personable and professional. The rooms are very clean but it could use an update: it gave me the sensation of a Seinfeld episode :). I had lost my wallet one day before the trip and only had cash upon arrival, Carlos and the manager helped me with the... More

I've been trying out various hotels around the Berkeley area. Since I always have to shop for something my college student needs, I thought Emeryville would be a good place to stay since the shopping at Bay Street is nearby as well as the college staples, IKEA and Trader Joes. This hotel was surprisingly nice for the price $111 per... More

Overall the HGI is a suitable place to stay due to the location of my client. The rooms are okay, but noisy due to being close to 580. The staff is very friendly and offer to assist when they can. The breakfast buffet is boring and I recommend eating dinner somewhere other than the hotel.

Daughter was moving to Emeryville, so this was a great location for us. E_Z on and off freeway. Staff was great! Only thing we didn't care for was could not control heat at night..was a little too hot for us.

First, I would like to commend the excellent customer service I received when I checked into the hotel by an employee named Cierra. I have stayed at many Hilton Hotels (although this is the first time I stayed at Hilton Garden Inn), and I must say her customer service truly warmed my heart and made me feel very welcomed. Cierra’s... More

Stayed over the holidays. Great location for getting around and site seeing. Went to San Francisco several days, Napa Valley, San Jose, Montery. All very convenient day trips. Hotel was clean. Parking was convenient and well lit. Had bay view room and were able to see the San Francisco New Years Eve fireworks. Could also see the Bay and Golden... More

we stayed here four nights, and were pleased with all amenities. 2nd floor room was very convenient, and the elevator was quick. did not eat at restaurant, but had a couple of drinks and some bar food, which was good. parking was allright and seemed safe, but a little pricey. (should cut u a break for three nights or more).... More
