I stayed for graduation for my friend at UCB. The staff at the hotel were very pleasant and energetic to all guests. Rooms are clean. Location is great, close to the campus, resturant, shops and so on... Great place for affordable rate.

Where to start? Dirty floors, bugs, clerk asleep at the front desk, no free parking, paper-thin doors and walls, beer cans and god knows what else under our bed, sharp metal objects sticking out of the carpet, and overpriced rooms. Avoid this place like the plague!

I cannot believe the positive reviews I am reading on this site, reviews that make the Nash Hotel sound like a quaint, charming oasis in the heart of Berkeley. THIS HOTEL IS A FLEABAG. A DIVE. A RAT HOLE. The room are filthy (my bathtub hadn't been cleaned in months, and a layer of black dirt covered the windowsill), the... More

I just spent a week at the Nash much to my dismay (couldn't find another place to stay after the first night). Aside from my price quote over the phone being rejected by the management, the room was filthy (mold in refrigerator, spider webs in all corners, dirt on sheets, etc.) and the attendant yelled at me for my toilet...

I have just spent 3 nights there and I really like the place. It is so convenient to everything and the price just as good as you can get. Well, for sure this is the place you want to try out and I am sure you will like it.

Stay away from this hotel. My boyfriend and I don't lare used to living on a budget and avoid spending unnecessarily on hotels but this place is not worth saving money. And when you factor in the private bathroom it is not that great of a deal. I listed some of the cons below. Cons: -Stained pillow cases -Sheets smelled... More

Based on the good reviews on this site, we took a gamble to stay at this hotel for one night. We were not expecting much, but got even less. The elevator smelled and not worked well. The room was exactly as other described. We refused to walk on the carpet barefoot and didn't dare sit on the bedspread. And,we didn't... More

After waiting a 25 minutes, I was checked in to my reservated 'single shared bathroom' room last night. Returning from the dirty shared bathroom, I found a death mice on the bed, covered by the sheetes. Asking the manager for a switch of the room or a refund, she said, "With that price, how do you expected it to be?"___Yes,... More

Just a few comments on the Nash hotel: We arrived late and had to call for the staff and had to wait outside for 20 minutes. Our room was small, dirty and we found a window in the room, which had to stay there. We found some old clothes in the room and even an old porn magazine (my girlfriend... More
