    It was extremely quiet over five nights. This is never the case in any hotel I have stayed at for this length.

    I used the hotel on a visit to my daughter at college. The hotel was close by her apartment and school so that made it very attractive. The hotel was an old mansion and was very eclectic to say the least. Excellent buffet breakfast and coffee and tea available all day. Also very comfortable public rooms.

    The weekend I chose to visit was also the weekend of Model UN at UC Berkeley. The price of Berkeley hotel rooms rise and fall depending on the time of year and what is going on at the university. I usually stay at another site but it was sold out, as were most rooms close to the school. Therefore, the room was expensive. But, having said that, I enjoyed my stay very much and would stay there again.

    The gardens were even better than the photos ~ wonderful colour and scents. Downstairs sitting area really homely and comfortable. Nice room with all we needed. Good breakfast and friendly staff.

    Charming gardens greet you as you enter with lovely scents int the morning. Very nice breakfast included served buffet style and everything was well presented. I would definitely stay here again.

    Somewhat rustic.

    Wonderful character atmosphere. Funky fragrant garden was pleasant to enjoy in the afternoons. Our room - a 2 queen bed junior suite w fireplace was large with additional two twin beds set up like couches. We enjoyed the breakfast each of the three days of our stay. We will likely return and would definitely recommend to others.

    Noisy power washer car washing neighbors.

    The common area is very comfortable. The weather was lovely so sitting outside with a cold drink and a book was a perfect environment.

    Our room was pretty small, but I understood that when I booked the room.

  • Older travelers

    The breakfast was better than normal.

    The hotel is generally run down and may be unsafe; I doubt that it could pass a code inspection. Some exposed wiring (Romex) was held against the baseboard by bent over nails and decades of paint; there were so few outlets that a 6:1 plug had to be put in one (by the hotel!); the chest of drawers was missing a handle; pieces of the fire escape had fallen off leaving exposed nail heads; shower faucet was broken and fell off; shower was worn and nasty looking; threshold to bathroom was a tripping hazard; the room smelled of some kind of deodorizer;sheets were threadbare; maid service did not remove used towels on floor; room was barely large enough to walk around in.

  • Older travelers

    Interesting enclave on busy Telegraph Ave. Nice interior courtyard and collection of old Victorian homes turned into a motel.

    Off-street parking is very limited and cramped.

  • Family with children

    The staff were very helpful, welcoming. The buffet breakfast every morning and homemade cookies every afternoon were nice. Close to the college, easy access to highways to Oakland and San Francisco.

  • Older travelers

    It was good value for money -- relatively inexpensive for Berkeley, and in a good location near UC Berkeley and my family. The full breakfast and the onsite parking are nice bonuses, and the staff is generally helpful. I really enjoyed the harp player at one breakfast.

    Be aware: you get what you pay for. I found our room painfully small -- my husband and I could not dress or move around at the same time, and there wasn't even room for bedside tables by the bed. Apparently, there are much better rooms available if you pay a more. Many details of the old building are lovely, but some renovations seemed sloppy and much of the furniture is old, giving the place a worn and scruffy look -- it was clean, but not attractive to my eye.
