We stayed for 3 nights while our daughter moved into the dorms and got settled. It was still winter break, so the streets and restaurants were quiet but it is quite close to campus so I can imagine it would be noisier when school's in session. No movies in the room but with so much to do in Berkeley that wasn't a big complaint.
The rooms were comfortable, the staff VERY helpful and friendly, and while we didn't eat at the restaurant, there were several items on the menu that looked good for vegetarians. Our daughter left her coat in her room when she checked out, and later that day it was waiting at the desk for us.
Overall a great stay!
