Graduate Berkeley Guest Reviews

VERY GOOD (4 out of 5)

Very Good - 4 out of 5

Jim, Martinez Tue, 14 April 2015

Seemed expensive at almost $300 for a small room of OK quality. Great place to chill at the bar before the show. Easy walk to the venue. Quick exit and easy walk back to the hotel. As far as making it easy to be near the show and have food and drinks available before and after - perfect hotel. I feel like maybe $150 ish for the room would better reflect the room quality.

Liked: Short walk to the venue; great staff; nice bar.
Disliked: Overpriced and no parking.


Disappointing - 2 out of 5

Stephen D, Columbia, SC, visiting UC Berkeley Campus Fri, 10 October 2014

I would not recommend, unless renovations of rooms were performed.

Liked: Wonderful location! Has character. Could be a true boutique hotel, but needs major work.
Disliked: The odor in the room penetrated my suitcase and clothing. Rooms need urgent upgrades.

Convenient location

Liked: Graduate Berkeley is super close to the campus and within walking distance to most places. The room is also clean, though a bit tiny.
Disliked: It can be quite noisy at night. Some (one) of the staff at front desk was not very friendly.

Liked: The lobby is a nice place to work.
Disliked: Even though we opted not to have our room cleaned, to help save water, they refused to provide the $5 incentive promised because we hung both the ?go green? and ?Do Not Disturb? sign on the door.

Nice room but need some...

Liked: Nice room. Wifi speed was great.
Disliked: I am not very happy when the housekeepers open and close the door VERY LOUD while they clean the room. I can hear it all day long while I sit and work quietly in my room. Please fix this problem.

It was OK.

Liked: Novel decor, bed was comfy
Disliked: Bathroom was cramped, small sink, Only place to put your razor and toothbrush was on a small shelf above the toilet. Not ideal.
