We visited Berkeley as part of a trip to check out California colleges. BLGH was a great place to stay for our purpose - we got a feel for the university - got to chat with visiting professors, while enjoying the friendly college vibe. We arrived for our stay late at night, and already thought the view was great, but...

It was in the middle of university visit season and we wanted to check out Berkeley. Most of the nearby hotels were sold out and we were lucky to get a room in this guest house. Some of the positives: Rooms are very big and the bed is very comfortable. The bathroom is nicely appointed. Contrary to other reviewers, our...

I stayed at the Guest House for work, it was very clean and the front desk staff was great. I had two twin beds in my room, which was surprising, but it was a very decent place to stay at a reasonable price.

We stayed here for a couple of days and it is perfect for a getaway type trip. Tremendous view of the Bay Area from our room and the place is very quiet as it is located above the campus and away from the residential area. As this is the middle of a holiday weekend there must not be more than...

If you're looking for a fantastic view of the Golden Gate Bridge, Berkeley Campus and the Bay, this is the place to stay! Oh, and it's also comfortable, with staff that couldn't be any nicer. We love it here and would recommend the Berkeley Lab Guest House to anyone!

This is an amazing hotel with a wonderful and absolutrly awesome view of the bay. The rooms are impeccable and also the staff of the hotel was quite nice. The hotel is on top of the Lawrence hill which adds to the beauty of the place.

Located on the top of a hill, this is an extremely beautiful guest house which offers a very pleasant stay. The best part of the guest is the a amazing view of the bay from the room. Besides, even the staff of the guest house was very welcoming and friendly and they ensured that we had a great experience.

It was a great place set in the midst of greenery with a spectacular view of the Bay area . Has friendly staff (esp James was quite helpful), has clean rooms and great Cafeteria nearby . The only drawback is that the Cafeteria is closed on weekends and the last shuttle service is around 9 pm so one has to...
