Positive Reviews

Clean and quiet

Reviewers say that this hotel provides clean, peaceful accommodation in the heart of Berkeley. The rooms and common areas are kept in good condition by the housekeeping team, and the atmosphere is tranquil and serene.

Location, location, location

Travellers agree that this hotel's location is a highlight. They have no difficulty getting to a number of the area's top attractions. Of special note in many reviews are the neighbourhood restaurants, which feature cosmopolitan flavours and run the gamut from budget eats to fine dining experiences.

Friendly, attentive staff

Visitors say the staff at this hotel are very friendly. According to reviews, they are happy to help their guests with anything that may be needed during their stay. This includes giving recommendations about the area and directions into the city via Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART).

Negative Reviews

Very basic

Guests say that this property cannot be described as anything other than basic. The rooms are said to be very small and simply furnished, and there is nothing extra about the hotel – no coffee, no breakfast, and no welcome drink.

Exterior looks run down

Reviewers say this hotel's exterior needs some work. It looks quite old and run-down, and there is a good amount of trash in the parking lot. This gives many second thoughts about the quality of the hotel.

Pricey Bay Area

Visitors frequently complain about the high prices of the Bay Area in their reviews. Many are driven to this hotel because it is the cheapest around, but it is still considered very pricey considering the amenities.
