This hotel was...fine. For a family of five, including three teens, the larger room was welcoming, and fairly clean. There were four beds in the room (two larger, and two single beds,) that were comfortable and appeared clean. Overall, no complaints. Breakfast was hot and there were a handful of different choices to be made. The help was not overly... More

I do not like to post a negative review but this place certainly did not live up to its reputation or promises. Yes, it is unusual, charming and yes, it has a lot of potential - it being an old foster home that has been converted into budget accommodation. However this does not excuse an appalling level of service and... More

This is more of a hostel than a hotel. There were six of us staying here for a business trip, and we all moved to different hotels. The rooms were horrible. The furniture was mismatched and falling apart. The room had an old, musty smell. There is no air conditioning. I am not usually picky, but this place was very... More

Busy location but central to many south-side areas of interest. Nice grounds and plenty of pretty sitting areas outside one's room. The smaller, less expensive rooms leave something to be desired for the price. There was not even room enough for a chair in our small room for $180 or so. Though we reported it to management immediately, the water... More

This place is lovely and cozy. A fireplace in our room was a comfy feature. We loved the over-all staff. Staying there was a positive, very nice experience. I would highly recommend this place to stay. My favorite part was their gardens in different areas. The artwork decor on their walls was pleasing to the eye too.

What a cool hotel this is. We stayed on the top floor in a very large room. Our room had a queen bed, two twins, and a catch. The hotel had such an old rustic Victorian feel. It was wonderful. The complimentary breakfast was delicious and very fresh. My only complaint is the walls are thin so you can hear... More

I loved my room. The view was amazing. Room was a little worn, but clean. Breakfast was free, wifi worked perfect. 15 min to University. The street is filled with cultural experiences and food. A few street vedors, a wide variety of uniques shops, and a few major drug stores.

The room are not very good, and the room are small for single room. But i think it still a good bargain if you want to stay in a hotel, as there is not too much choice near UC Berkeley. the soundproof between rooms are very bad. I could hear chatting, and snoring from the room next to me...........

The room was tiny and old. Curtains were dirty and ripped. The bathroom tile looked like it was installed by a toddler. There was mold everywhere. The toilet seat was cracked and pinched your leg every time you sat down. Balcony was full of old trash. They didn't even clean it up after we asked. Parking was first come, first... More

Staff was accommodating, perfect for short visits, budget hotel. Good for families, charming and quaint, more traditional, rose garden is lovely outside - décor is welcoming, simple but inviting - worth visiting and checking out.
