Great dog friendly hotel.. loved it.

Posted Jul 26, 2015
Pros: Everything is on site . Great restaurant and bar.
Cons: I think morning coffee in the lobby . even though its in the room. its nice to have it already made for a complimentary cup for early birds.
Location: great location, away from the hustle n bustle of downtown yet so close to it if you want to wander around this cool town.
We were so happy to find this great place. We had peace of mind knowing our two little dogs were going to be happy as well.... plenty of walking trails right on the marina and also the hotel featured many walking trails on site as well as a huge grass areas for the dogs to play. Restaurant is Excellent. Staff is very friendly and willing to help you.

Nice view noisy air conditioning

Posted Jul 23, 2015
Beds were comfortable, but the air conditioning unit was broken. The maintenance personnel fixed it, but the system was extremely loud. Very difficult to sleep. Restaurant was ok, but service was slow. Not worth the price overall.

Eerste kamer die wij kregen, was vies. De tweede kamer redelijk. Restaurant en bar zijn erg duur.

Good location. Easy access to SFO.

Posted Jul 20, 2015
A/C was very loud and would cycle on and off like a truck. Double beds were a bit small. Queen beds would be better. Other than that, had a great experience.

Decent Bay Area hotel

Posted Jul 19, 2015
Pros: Salmon dinner at the restaurant was delicious -- a huge portion topped with a rich tomato jam and served with arugula salad alongside.
Location: Since we were just passing through, we just ate dinner and walked through the marina. There seems to be plenty of Berkeley within a short distance.
On the whole, this is a nice property. The marina location provided a pleasant evening stroll to watch the sunset. Dinner at the onsite restaurant was delicious, enhanced by fireside seating with a broad view of the marina. Our room was large and comfortable, with all the expected amenities of a good business hotel or a modest resort. My only complaint is that the listing described this room as a "premium balcony room" which I do not consider accurate. The room itself could be called premium, but the balcony overlooked the parking lot and was at most 18 inches deep. There is a difference between "premium room with balcony" and a "premium balcony room." Had I not anticipated a premium balcony, I doubt I would have been disappointed in any aspect of this hotel. Marketing should remember that a customer with fully satisfied modest expectations is happier than one who is mildly disappointed in high expectations.

Great resort feel. Good for families.

Posted Jul 18, 2015
Great for families, good shuttle service to local transport (BART). Needs a little attention here and there maintenance wise, but over all a great place to stay and excellent value.

Nice hotel lovely setting.

Posted Jul 15, 2015
Cons: A person sitting on the chairs outside in the early morning does not really want to hear the disco-like music that's playing in the lobby.
We stayed there for the weekend of July 10th 2015, and found the rooms clean and comfortable and large enough for two. Even the bathroom had extra room and counter space for spreading out on. The hotel's setting made for some nice early morning walks, since the property is right at the marina--lots of seagulls and interesting boats to look at. On the last day we ate at the $18 breakfast buffet, and I found plenty of things to eat for my low carb diet--plain Greek-style yogurt, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, cottage cheese, and of course there were the usual fruit and carb filled options too, and even some fried rice and some kimchee. For the price, which had coffee and juice included, it was a good deal, and I felt fortified to make the traffic-filled ride to the Oakland Airport.

4th of July weekend

Posted Jul 14, 2015
I always read reviews when finding a hotel. In town visiting son at UC Berkeley. Location was close to campus for driving. Ample parking. Check-in was easy. Room very comfortable for 4 people with 2 double beds. Coffee shop onsite was great. Staff made weekend fun with 4th of July BBQ & blanket for fireworks viewing. Housekeeping did a good job. Will stay again when I come back to Berkeley.
