L'emplacement est merveilleux. Bâtiment ancien et grandiose qui a été bien entretenu. Il y avait quelques années que j'y étais allé et l'endroit semble en meilleur état qu'il ne l'était.
Accueil réception très chaleureux, commodités piscine, spa très bien organisés.Soirée animée avec musique bien appréciée. -
Il n'y a rien Sale, nauséabond et très bruyant. Nous n'avons pas eu un bon séjour dans cet hôtel.
Chambre agreable, grande, excellente literie, propre, la chambre avec balcon avec vue sur la marina vaut le coup. piscine interieure avec jacuzzi ,baie vitre donnant sur la marina. salle de restaurant agreable, bonne restauration, schuttlequi vous amene au bart pour aller au centre de san francisco (1/2h de l'hotel au centre) Pas de point negatif
A notre arrivée, les chambres étaient très propres, même si l'hôtel, les fenêtres et les portes étaient atrocement sales. Le personnel au check in était génial. Le lit était très inconfortable, oreillers mous et grumeleux. Les murs sont très fins, donc on pouvait entendre tout ce qui se passait à côté. Horrible.
Nous avons passé un excellent moment. J'y retournerais sans hésiter.
Hôtel historique refait récemment, au plein coeur de Berkeley, des chambres très propres, et un service impeccable. Le restaurant de l'hôtel est un peu cher, surtout pour les petits déjeuners (difficile de s'en tirer pour moins de 25-30$ avec le tip). Mais bon, les petits déjeuners sont aussi très bons, et il y a un Starbucks à 50m.
Excellente qualité de couchage, restaurant de l'hotel haut de gamme, personnel très efficace et aimable, d'autant que booking.com avait omis de reserver cet hotel !!! L'hotel donne sur les rues, quelque soit la chambre, et l'insonnorisation des fenètres étant insuffisante le bruit fut un soucis majeur.
La situation, le charme des chambre et du jardin
Beaucoup de charme et proximité du campus et de l'animation de Telegraph street. Service très symathique et efficace à la réception La chambre était vraiment très petite : même pas la place pour une table de chevet de chaque côté du lit et pour poser les bagages : nous avons dû mettre une valise sur le bureau et l'autre dans la salle de bains !
L'ambiance générale de l' hôtel est très "cosy". L'accueil est très agréable. Le petit déjeuner est très copieux et le service en buffet s'effectue dans d'excellentes conditions.
Le côté kitch de l'hôtel avec un jardin rempli de fleurs, des feux de cheminée même dans les chambres, un petit déj satisfaisant, un réceptionniste sympa peut- être juste le fait que le métro pour rejoindre San Francisco soit à environ 15mn à pied de l'hôtel..
Character, old world, charming. It has a good vibe. Restaurant upstairs is excellent with good selection of wine. Walking distance to Berkeley shops and other really good restaurants. The rooms were a wee bit small but comfortable. This is a very old building and built as a place of safe stay for women. There is parking but adds 20 bucks a day to your stay -not unusual.
The view of San Francisco was really nice from our room. That's the only plus I can talk about this place. Everything else. For a 3 star hotel at a premium price, it was disappointing. While the beds seemed clean, they squeaked and creaked like they were from 20+ years old. The rugs where filthy looking with stains. And don't try using the advertised pool, where you first have to sign up for an available time slot and enforced to swim laps only. The breakfast, well, if you like bagels and cereal it'll do, but overall disappointing location. Absolutely would never stay here again.
The View and breakfast were great Elevator was dinging all night....and yes being so close to the elevator probably didn't help, but that is something that they should be able to mute for individual floors as needed
Room is spacious with view and amenity look friendly. Internet connection is slow. Car parking is expensive.
Easy highway access and good response to requests. We had booked three rooms for a family business trip. One room had a cracked sink, two rooms had ill fitting front doors which let so much light under the door as a light was left on. One room had drapery that had holes in it.
I had a room I requested an early check-in by e-mail. I received a text saying I could check in at 2pm. Staff told me check in is at 3pm, period. Did not even check to see if rooms were available.
Ariana at the front desk was incredibly helpful, professional and very friendly. Ariana should be commended for her customer service. I booked the room via Kayak. I thought I was getting a King Bed. When I checked in the front desk gal ( who was not very helpful!!) said that the hotel was oversold because there were 2 family reunions going on and she needed to put me up in another local hotel. I didn't have time to do that, as I needed to be in SF within the 1/2 hour. She allowed me to go up to a meeting room to change clothes and said that the meeting room had a pull out sofa. So, I told her that instead of running around Emeryville to another hotel, I would just take the sofabed. Ends up there wasn't a sofa bed. She also said she would send up my bags...but she didn't do that either! Housekeeping had to come in with a blow up mattress. NOT a comfortable night's sleep. However, a gal named Ariana was now working at the front desk. She gave me free parking and 2 vouchers for some food/wine. I also called Kayak and they spoke with the hotel and my room was comp'd all together. I appreciate that greatly...but would also like to mention that if the hotel was already oversold...I shouldn't have been able to reserve a room. A lot of hassle...but between Kayak and Ariana...it was resolved to my satisfaction. Thank you!
Easy highway access, decent size room and good response to problems. We didn't like being charges 15 a day for parking and that the common areas were unkept even in the early mornings, ie overflowing garbage cans, ashtrays and glasses left from the night before on the patio area.
The location was excellent for what we wanted to do. We were greeted warmly by the front desk. Our room was comfortable. Though we only stayed for one day, we were glad to have chosen this hotel. The water temp for the shower took awhile to get warm. Also, the tub water didn't drain properly.
Great room set up. Good desk and chair for a business traveler. Like the coffee in the lobby now as well. Sad you have done away with glassware in the room. I think of motels as having paper cups and nice hotels provide glasses. I enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day and don't like it in a paper cup. You have also dropped the level of amenities provided in the bathroom.
The hotel was very modern and clean which is a big plus for me, especially with children. I loved that it was so close to the Bay bridge and minutes away from SF. Staff was friendly and the overall location was nice and close to the water. n/a
The bilinds were not fully functional. Minor maintenance. That's all.
I like the bathrooms and set up of room The kids that were unsupervised scattered through building The noisiness The front staff
We booked through this site New Years Eve evening. Most hotels were full or costly. But we found this great deal at a great price. It over look the San Francisco bay, where we watched the fireworks at midnight. The night manager was very accommodating to our needs, especially with parking. To find a reasonable price room at a good hotel like the Hilton, I will recommend to everyone to use this site.
I loved the location - so close to UC Berkeley. I also loved Henry's. Ate lunch there and had after shopping drinks. Housekeeping was very noisy - starting before 8 am on the floor I stayed on.
Location to UC Berkeley No air conditioner, very small room
There for a university tour on a Thursday, had a great stay. Room was comfortable and clean (for 4 of us on two double beds). Room was much bigger than SF hotels we had been at earlier in the week. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Lobby was comfortable and the restaurant was surprisingly good. Overall, great place for a short stay.
The hotel was located in the heart of Berkeley and only 25 mins away from San Francisco by train. It looks a bit daunting from the outside but inside it is extremely clean, staff are very friendly and the bar/restaurant is good. Rooms are not massive but adequate. Would recommend for a stay in Berkely or base to explore San Francisco.
A very enjoyable stay. Very cheerful and pleasant staff who were always keen to help, especially Eric and Rodolfo at the Front Desk. I will stay again. Grouting around bath need replacing (mould)
The staff that couldn't do enough to make our 9 night stay as comfortable as possible.
Everything was just fine, and it was convenient to what we wanted to do.
Comfortable, very very friendly and helpful staff, near campus, free wifi (slowish). hairs on towel and bathroom floor...
It was pleasant and attractive, with staff who wanted to please It is very noisy. I think there should be a card in the room stating a reminder to be quiet, because construction is older and sound carrys.
Has a wow factor. Lovely decor., down to earth staff and great food. Quiet. We had a good price. The location was perfect The room was small, felt cramped. We were stunned by the local taxes and fees - $93. I might stay out if the area next time.
The staff was friendly and the location was great - close to bart and uc Berkeley. Bathroom window did not open and a little bit noise in the morning.
Everyone is friendly and makes you feel very welcome. I loved my room and the pub is fabulous. Great food, great atmosphere and a fun design in the room. I didn't find anything I didn't like.
The room, facilities, and staff are great. Breakfast could use some work. It was okay, considering there is no kitchen on site. But it wasn't even good catered hot food.
The neighborhood. Excellent restaurants, bars, shops in walking distance. Awesomely diverse. Older hotel. Could use an update but still no problem. You are downtown so it is a little noisy and there are homeless people around. But....this is what Berkeley is so don't be surprised.
The valet parking service was too expensive and too slow.
I like the fact that the hotel was closed to everything that we needed from restaurants, bars and drugstores. The hotel staff were very friendly from the valet attendant to the front desk. Our flight got delayed and they were able to accommodate our check-in time. We understand that parking is an issued around the city but we thought it was expensive for the hotel to charge $45 for valet parking and there are a lot of homeless people walking around. I wouldn't walk around the city by yourself at night.
Es war sauber. Der Preis war unverschämt. Die Lage so lala und eher laut. Parken und Frühstück teuer.
Rooms are great, liked the full kitchen and living room area. Wish I would have know there was all sorts of construction going on in the building. It changed the way they operated their breakfast and the noise was something I could have done without in the mornings.
Relatively close to my daughter's house. No implement to close or open the drain in the sink.
Nice staff. No noise problems. Free parking. The room had a microwave, an air conditioner, a small fridge and a free wireless Internet connection (though it often went off). Emails that I sent twice to the hotel went unanswered (though after I called them the problem was solved).
It was clean!!!! The staff obviously paid attention to cleaning - in & out!! Free wireless internet Ac controls
Staff was very responsive. Booking was easy. Quiet. Inexpensive. Room showed significant wear and tear. Could have been cleaner.
visit son at Berkeley
good location, friendly staff, clean somewhat updated room, good value, I left before breakfast, 4:20AM had good coffee. Would stay again for budget stay.
Recent remodeling, with all new fixtures in the bathroom and sink area. It was very clean. The room was fairly quiet. The price was good for a hotel stay in the area. Only the typical stale hotel room smell.
The helpfulness of the staff--they were extraordinary. Your site booked me for a nonsmoking 2-queen room, but it turned out that the motel only smoking rooms left. Nevertheless, they somehow found me a small non-smoking room for the first night, and then I was able to change to a larger non-smoking room the 2nd night for a better (non-Internet) rate. They also located my robe and gown that I had left in the 1st room. The Internet connection was very weak (2 bars) in both rooms that I stayed in.
Good breakfast,close to centre and transpotation.Good parking.
clean room, near uc berkeley loud talking outside door was disturbing, wasn't sure if it was hotel staff or guests
Good place for short stay. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. The breakfast area is indeed tiny but you can take your food outside (weather permitting) or your room. We only stayed one night and it was a fine place. I was surprised to be charged more than expected (no taxes were included in the booking.com price so the bill was a bit higher than expected). Also we asked for a non-smoking room and found cigarette left overs on the floor; for the rest however it was a very clean place.
Unpretentious roadhouse style relaxing after a long flight Breakfast is adequate but rudimentary by English standards
Bien situé Chambre pas propre à mon arrivée. Passage de train non stop, incluant la nuit... Wifi qui marche mal. Travaux dans l'hotel. Petit dej moyen. What else ?
Chambre propre et confortable; petit déjeuner parfait
Nice bathroom, had mini fridge and microwave, very quiet. Beds were quite small, room could be cleaner, quite expensive for what we received.
The bathroom looked recently remodeled with granite shower walls, counter, and floor tile. There was a large flat screen TV with directTV. The room had a refrigerator and microwave. The bed was comfortable. The location was good. The price was good. The room was dark and small. There is traffic noise from the street. Worst of all the room smelled sour and the air coming from the heater - AC unit was stale smelling. The continental breakfast was very basic, but I didn't expect much for the price we paid.
Une belle vue au moment du petit dejeuner,parce que la chambre ne donnait pas sur ce coté(elles sont plus chères),j'ai apprécié la Wifi gratuite,bonne connection. Nous n'avons pas aimé l'éloignement de l'hotel de toutes commodités,il faut etre véhiculé,sinon l'hotel a des navettes pour accompagner les clients jusqu'aux transports en commun mais ce n'estpas pratique,ensuite les appeler pour qu'ils viennent vous chercher(sur ce coup un jour on nous a oubliés et on a du attendre plus de 2h, dans le froid pour qu'ils envoient quelqu'un nous chercher! aussi il n'y a pas d'aération dans la chambre,bien éclairée mais les vitres condanées,je n'y retournerai pas.
Good value for the money. Easy access to good restaurants and within walking distance (10-15min) from the bart. Great friendly staff. We got upgraded to a larger room (since they had the vacancy) for no extra cost, and also left our car there for the day (free parking) after checking out. Hotel is very old, and the facilities are run down. It was ok as a place to crash at for a night, but it's not a "nice" hotel by any stretch of the imagination.
The location is great (North Berkeley) near plenty of restaurants. Exterior is quaintly decorated, interiors are nice and have a home-y touch. Unfortunately the walls are very thin so be prepared to hear conversations clearly from the adjacent rooms. The water lines are especially loud. I am not a light sleeper but it is difficult to rest when you're woken every time a neighbor turns on a sink. Additionally, like many motels of this grade, the WiFi is totally overloaded. It is possible to connect to the network and check your email if you're patient. Expect to get internet connectivity in 15 second intervals every 2 minutes or so.
That it was in the city of Berkeley. Filthy, run down with smelly rooms. There was an unstable patron who required an ambulance and several police cars. Blocking my car and more than probably scratching it. All this occurred late and was very disruptive to our sleep.
The only thing I liked about my stay here was its proximity to various business: Acme Bread, 4th Street shopping No AC - just a small round fan hung up on the corner of the room, old musty carpeting with a film on it (had to go to walgreens to purchase socks to wear when in), old linens/curtains/scratchy towels, indifferent help desk.
Great staff. Heater barely works (even though it's February); it's dark; the shower hangs so low I had to bend to use it and I'm only 5'7"; the decor is dark, depressing and cheap; the electric outlets were scarce--just an awful place that isn't worth it compared to other motels in Berkeley.
If you like good old-fashioned funky motels, you'll love this one. It could be anywhere in America, but it is a bargain in Berkeley. And the sushi bar which shares the parking lot is terrific.
Convenient, economical - friendly staff. Just what I needed for my stay in Berkeley. Location is very good. It is easy to get to by car and within easy walking distance of the Berkeley campus and other locations, including BART.
Would give negative stars. Dirty. Cum stained sheets. Smelled like mold and mildew. The guy working the desk the entire time was awful, offensive. Was like pulling teeth trying to get him to provide clean sheets. Awful. Don't recommend to anyone besides whores and crackheads.
free parking leaky toilet, and broken vanity needed repair. wall is thin and can hear people talking next door and from level below. tv remote is low on battery and can change volume or turn on or off the tv. Room is dark and does not have enough sun light.
It was nice and quite , and nice big screen tv and comfortable beds. I love the fact they had a microwave , fridge , and coffee maker. It made is so nice. :) The bathrooms needed some work. Walls were cracked and chipping.
Bed was comfortable Too noisy in the morning
They had great customer service and the rooms were super clean. The bathroom, while clean, could use a bit of a face lift. This isn't necessarily a con, just a suggestion.
The staff were pretty nice. Dirty mattresses. Molded shower curtains. Dirty furniture.
Nothing. I hated my room. The shower curtain had mold and some of the towels were ripped.
comfort Performing the work of servicing personnel
for trips to san francisco the hotel is very good located - near the highway; the rooms are very nice and clean the location of the hotel is in a dangerous area of oakland (we found out afterwards); someone broke in our rental car (nissan versa 4) and stole our holder for the navigation system .. not very important or expensive but because of the broken window in our car we had a lot of trouble; the hotel stuff didn't help us in any way to solve our problems .. they didn't even gave us the phone number of the police station ...
The hotel looked a little dingy from the outside, so we were pleasantly surprised when we walked into the room. We got a free upgrade at check in which we were very happy with. The room had free wifi and we could park our car close to the room for free. Staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to the bart station, so it's quick and easy to get to Berkeley. The neighborhood is not too nice, it's not a good place to walk around by yourself after dark and there was some noise outside during the night.
Free parking. We stayed here because there weren't any rooms free in San Francisco which was our destination. We stayed here for 4 days and overall it was very good. The biggest plus is polite and extremely friendly owner and his son who did us a favor after something went screwed with our reservations. Rooms are fairly clean, and really spacious with a tv inside. I gave max points for location but for Oakland, for San Francisco this location is good only if you have a car. We found some hair on the pillow on the first night. There was always problem with towels, every night we asked for 2 big towels for showering, and got them, but the next morning we would again be given 2 small ones. Got soap only after asking for it. Wireless working a bit, and then not working...
Dirty! Really dirty! I don't know why they got those good revives, I travel a lot, and read reviews before I book my hotels, this one was a totally mistake!
The room , the colors , and the cleaness of the room I didn't like that you could not renew your stay
I didn't care for the third floor.
The location in Jack London Square, fairly spacious rooms Unexpected noise of the Amtrack as it passed very close to hotel
The only thing we liked is its location, right next to Jack London Square. The bathroom is tiny and outdated. no tub for my children. Advertised "city view" was actually view of the back alley/parking lot. $25 valet parking was mandatory, no self parking. not going to recommend or stay there again.
The staff did a wonderful job. very friendly Parking and the cost to park no breakfast for guess
There is a shower only, no bath. The wall is thin. The noise were heared from the adjacent rooms or the passage. The room is narrow.
It's been years since I've stayed at Jack London Square. It's definitely gone up a step. Waterfront Hotel is an easy access location - both for driving and the train. Great restaurants both right in the Square and a short stroll away. The rooms are clean and comfortable and it was surprisingly quiet even with all the events during our stay. The ONLY drawback was the hallway maze to our room. If we just followed the numbers we eventually got there...but no two paths were the same. Our coffee maker was broken but they delivered hot coffee to us immediately on request. The TV was also out but the cable was replaced while we were out for dinner. Perfect service.
The room was incredibly dirty and the beds uncomfortable. To be specific there was an unflushed toilet with something not so pleasant upon our arrival into our room. Completely unacceptable. The television did not work either. I will NEVER stay at this hotel again.
Lovely evening meal at restaurant having a limo called for us when we had asked for a cab!
Clean rooms, close to downtown Oakland, waterfront views. Thin walls and ceiling, could hear everything our upstairs neighbors were saying and doing, including peeing into the toilet! We were placed in a weird room right off the lobby and could hear people arriving and checking in. Was not worth the money we paid.
Everything was perfect. Except the breakfast at the attached restaurant was fairly expensive and the service was not superbre, but the hotel itself is a true pleasure to stay in.
Balcony, view, color, staff, proximity to office. told it'd be $20 for valet, but valet told me $25. I was charged $20. train sucked.
The location is nice, good restaurants within walking distance in the area. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the wine & cheese hour was a nice touch. Everything was great with the exception of the thin walls, which unfortunately makes it a deal breaker for me.
The room was basically clean and included a good selection of amenities like a fridge and microwave. There are several restaurants within walking distance, plus a BART (subway) station, and there's a Zipcar parking lot right next to the motel for those who can use them. It's a little far from downtown, but still not bad. Also, this is a minor thing, but in many cases if I wasn't out of the room by 9 AM or so, it wouldn't get cleaned. The front lobby has very little space, and parking is cramped.
Very Convenient in visiting UC Berkeley Campus.
Excellent stuff, peaceful location. No shampoo and hair drier in the bathroom .
