Stayed in two rooms, each a king and twin bed, a vast amount of space, fireplaces, kitchenettes, etc. Buildings are old and somewhat in disrepair but overall provide a very charming experience. Rooms are very luxurious, though again the furnishings are dated - while charming, they have some drawbacks after extended use, such as a musty odor and dustiness. Plumbing...

In a beautiful setting this place is relatively inexpensive. The rooms are scattered through the property with nice plantings. Breakfast is adequate. Our only complaints are related to the heating, cooling and room condition. The heating system in our room was a single unit that blew hot air in the room with manual thermostat that did not indicate the temperature....

Although the hotel could do with updating as it looked a tired we had a pleasant 4 night's there. Our room was large and clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was simple and all we needed. The garden is lovely, although it was raining most of the time we were there! It is in a quiet residential...

This place has no right to call itself a bed and breakfast. No personal attention, old run-down rooms and nothing fresh at breakfast - only pre-fab food. Don't trust the pictures. The carpet was old and dirty, with an Iron-burn which melted the carpet right next to the bed. I was afraid to walk without shoes. The help was useless...

This hotel was dirty, run down, smelled horrible, and we woke up to bed bugs. Bed bugs are horrifying. Do not stay here. The front desk said they would refund our money, but had to first contact the manager.

The good: We got an upgrade room because the room originally planned for us was under maintenance. This room was large with 4 beds that gave us lots of room to move about. I love the idea of an urban hotel. This is one on Telegraph - a major road in Berkeley. Close to lots of places. The inside grounds...

The concierge, who reeked of body odor, placed us in a room already occupied. He never apologized or really formed a full sentence. The room itself was okay albeit antiquated. The breakfast was particularly plain but included with the (somewhat expensive) price of the room. The rose garden itself was pretty, but the innkeeper was rather rude. Also, much of...

Awful. We prepaid $230 for a dirty, run-down room. I was very disappointed. Outside areas are lovely, I will say that. Front desk personnel are also polite, if a little overworked. But having "rain" drip down from the ceiling in the middle of the night was over the top. I'm still waiting for my refund...

The good: absolutely lovely outdoors. Plants are gorgeous and maintained. Staff was friendly on arrival, 24 hour coffee, free breakfast ( not super, but free), good location. The bad: room needs renovation, unsafe windows ( no screens), hot as heck in room-no fan or AC, too expensive for what it is I think I was disappointed overall as this was...

We only spent one night. The room was small and needed some renovation but it was perfect for us. We had a very quiet restful night. The gardens surrounding the facility were lovely as well as the murals on all the outside walls. The morning breakfast was very nice. The entry was elder but beautiful.
