This is in an incredible run down urban part of town. The only parking available was scarce street parking or a "city lot" where the front desk rep said, "take everything you own out of your car or it will be stolen". This establishment is nothing other than an over priced hostel. Very few rooms have bathrooms, the sheets had...

If you are on a budget and you want to be close to downtown Berkeley or the university, this is a great place to stay. Just blocks from the BART (so you don't have to lug your suitcase far), you are a 10 minute walk from campus and right in the heart of downtown. For even more savings, book a...

Had a horrible experience and would recommend no one stay here. The lobby smelled like wet carpet or cat pee and the smell carried up into the rooms. I made my reservation over the phone and when I got there they had lost it and told me it was my fault for calling the wrong number, which I had not....

Lovely staff/owners and large room/bathroom. Hotel has been renovated with good finishes and rooms have good amenities. A room at the back was very quiet, despite the central location of the hotel. The entrance on University Ave might look a bit iffy, but the hotel is clean and safe with lovely linens and toiletries.

This is an excellent small and budget hotel in the heart of Berkeley. I've read quite a few reviews who said how great the staff were, and they were absolutely right! On my second day, I asked the owner for some extra towels, only to find out that he wanted to invite me to the family dinner with glass(es) of...

Like staying in your best friend's cool aunt's old townhouse. Very clean, recently renovated old hotel building a couple blocks from downtown BART station with original architecture, new tiles and paint. Walls are thick so you don't hear much of your neighbors! Quirky mix of sturdy old practical furniture and pretty touches like enameled lamps, lidded porcelain coffee cups. Look...

The whole area smells like a Chinese restaurant. The room was very noisy, walls are thin. Room should be renovated, for $150 I would expect higher quality. Really Close to Bart station at least, but streets are full of homeless ppl. Rather on a hostel level..but price of a 3* hotel.

When we drove up, we were a little startled at the entrance of the Nash Hotel and for someone who routinely stays at hotel chains the appearance initially had me a little concerned. We chose the Nash for the price and walking convenience to Cal and BART. The neighborhood feels like classic Berkeley but did not feel unsafe and is...

I stayed in this hotel in between houses so my main aim was to be close to the campus where I was working. The manager in particular was very friendly. They helped me to store my stuff as well. The room was clean and the location was very convenient.

Very basic but clean and super friendly and accommodating staff. Very comfy king bed and pillows. You can open windows for fresh air but parking lot is noisy in the am. Greasy central location and bear good restaurants and Bart.
