    Very clean, except for the stairwell carpet. Friendly staff. It would be great to have an ice machine, so you didn't have to bug the staff everytime you needed ice.

  • 4.0.Fair

    My most significant complaint was the cleanliness or lack thereof. I understand due to Covid rooms are no longer cleaned daily although I have been in hotels were rooms are still being cleaned. This is distinct to changing towels and sheets. In short the floor and rug were filthy - so filthy that the bottom on my feet were black with grime after walking just a few minutes barefoot. Surely Covid does not pre-empt the floors from being mopped and rugs shampooed!

    Enjoyable stay

    In a great area in Berkeley, near several restaurants, and right next to a grocery store. My room had a nice patio balcony. Also had a microwave and small fridge. I liked having the bakery in front. Made it so easy to get coffee and pastries in the morning and sandwiches for lunch. Friendly and helpful staff too. I thought it was reasonably priced compared to higher-end places.

    Nice room at a good price

    Always great service. I have stayed a couple of times. I like the location, lots of parking and a nice room.

  • 6.0.Good

    The bed was very comfortable. A few issues- we had reserved a room with a balcony but didn't get one. When the front desk person tried to move us to a room with one, the TV didn't work. So we moved back to our original room, which was right above the coffee shop. Due to the loudness from the shop opening in the morning, I was woken early (6 or before) every morning. A little too pricy for what was offered. Essentially you are paying for the location, bed and cleanliness.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    It is in the heart of Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto, right across from Chez Pannise. We got our take-out dinner from Chez Panisse, took it across the street and ate it on the balcony of our hotel room (we brought table cloth, silverware, wine, candles, napkins and plates). Lovely way to beat the lock-down.

    Walked in on me in my underwear, no knocking

    The bathroom had multiple black long hairs on the floor upon arrival. Also I was logged in on her by management when I was in my underwear and working out in my room. Very embarrassing, he did not knock on the door

    Room was OCCUPIED!

    I arrived at 11pm and had a difficult time finding the entrance. Then I learn there is technically no parking. They I learn that my room has been given away so they give me a new one. AN ALREADY OCCUPIED ROOM! The man in the bed was terrified when I walked in. The man at the desk was apologetic and kind but I did not sleep a wink that night.
