Beautiful hotel right at the waterfront

Posted Aug 17, 2017
The hotel is very beautiful and the staff impeccably friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautifully designed but lack a little in conveniences.

Great locations double beds are way to small.

Posted Aug 17, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: The rooms need a big updating they felt very used.
Location: Super close to Berkely and the Bay. Great location
The location of this hotel is super. It is right on on the bay with great views. The staff was great. However this hotel needs a makeover big time. The rooms are just ok. The big downside we found was that the beds in the double are really small. My wife and I are not big people but these beds are way to small for two people.

Nice quiet location

Posted Jul 31, 2017
Pros: Nice restaurant and bar, relaxing location.
Cons: First floor rooms are where most of the pets are located. Don't just put someone in a pet friendly room, without informing them first.
Location: Not a lot to do nearby.
Located on the Berkeley Marina, this place has some pretty views of the bay. Our only negative was that there is nothing nearby, and you can't walk anywhere, because it's on the wrong side of the freeway.

Beautiful location with mediocre service & room

Posted Jul 26, 2017
Cons: - Not cheap - Couldn't check in until 4:00pm, wouldn't budge for my wedding across the way - Balcony is NOT a balcony, it is with enough for two chairs across from each other and a small table between; I had to step over the table in my wedding dress to sit on a chair after a long day - Toilet barely flushed - No drinks in the fridge (alcohol or other) Pros: - The marina is beautiful and it has a nice walking path around it - Check out time in noon

Beautiful location.

Posted Jul 23, 2017
The marina view is amazing. This hotel also has a great view of the San Fran skyline. The only downside is the traffic on the Bay Bridge if you go back and forth from San Fran to Berkeley.

We're thrilled that you enjoyed the spectacular views that can be experienced from our property. We understand the frustration of traffic on the Bay Bridge and wish this were something we can control. However, we hope our amazing location is enough to bring you back for a return visit! Thank you.

A little bit of heaven

Posted Jul 19, 2017
Pros: Everything. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was remarkable. The rooms were nice,beds were comfortable,and the view special.
Cons: I can't think of a thing that needs to be improved.
Location: We love being at the marina and walking around, and watching all the sail boats.
We enjoyed everything about our time at the hotel. The rooms were comfortable and had great views. The shuttle service was a bonus and the driver Adam was friendly and helpful. He deserves a raise. Dining at Skates was special. We also enjoyed the food at the hotel Bar and Grill.

Secluded, but Convenient

Posted Jul 10, 2017
Pros: Staff treated everyone like they really cared! Beautiful views of the marina, the bay, and San Francisco city skyline. Comfortable room, great food!
Cons: Some furnishings are due to be replaced!
Location: 5 minutes into downtown Berkeley, 10 minutes to U.C. Berkeley campus.
Secluded location, away from hubbub of the city, yet convenient to all things Berkeley. Clean, comfortable, well-managed hotel. The staff was fantastic!!!

had a view of the marina

Posted Jul 8, 2017
Pros: Location and staff. Parking is really easy
Cons: New beds
Location: we use the hotel's bike for a ride and downtown Berkeley is close by.
Second time I've been here and I really like the location. Rooms are clean and had a great view of the marina. Beds could be upgraded.
