This was our first visit to the Hotel Shattuck and we were impressed. They have a fun bar in the lobby. The front desk provided quick service at check in. Our room was decent sized. It was also quiet at night. Some of the other hotels in Berkeley can be noisy at night. It is walking distance to the university too. I also liked the decor of the rooms.

Hotel Shattuck is a welcoming upgraded old Berkeley hotel. The wall paper and carpeting are colorful and zany in keeping with the creative spirit of Berkeley. Staff is friendly, breakfast was delicious and you get value for your money in its medium pricing. We had a basic room with no view but it suited our one night stay just fine. The room is small but has all the amenities and a comfortable bed with reading lights above which I appreciate! We will definitely stay there again.

The hotel Shattuck has all the ingredients to be a nice hotel...great location, good size, character...where they fail is simply maintaining the property and cleanliness.

Upon check in we found a massive glob of hair plastered on the shower wall, clearly the shower was not cleaned from the previous quest. A light bulb was out in the bathroom. The chair in the bedroom looked like it was picked up off the side of the road and placed in the room.

Clearly the employees have no pride in their job or respect for their employee as these are all easily avoidable mistakes that should have been addressed immediately.

I would avoid the Shattuck, better off staying at a larger chain hotel to get more bang for your buck.

Room Tip: ask to check the room before you check in and its clean

This hotel is the nicest in Berkeley and is a block from campus. There are a few other hotel as close, but not as nice. The rooms are small but they have all the essentials of a 4 star hotel. Nice restaurant.

Absolutely no countertop space in bathroom. Good luck putting makeup on for those who wears glasses since the lighting in the room is adequate and the mirror in the bathroom has a large sink in front making it hard to lean forward, not to mention juggling makeup in your hands with no place to put them.
