  • Cute hotel - great service

    by Katherine K on 2018-01-16 04:36 pm

    Stayed here for a conference at UC Berkeley. Close enough to Oakland airport yet far enough. Great location with restaurants and cute shops nearby. Staff was super friendly and very accommodating. Highly recommend.

  • Never Again

    by cserver on 2018-01-06 09:50 pm

    I can't believe the good reviews this place has gotten. We booked two nights after reading the reviews (for an executive room). I wanted to leave as soon as we walked in our room but my husband convinced me to at least stay the night (it was late) but we left early the next morning and didn't come back even though we'd paid for two nights.

    First, the room was tiny, dingy and not well kept. It was so cold in the room but we couldn't figure out how to turn the heater on. We called downstairs and they told us the heat was the little radiator in the corner. We turned it on but if you put your hands five inches above the radiator, you couldn't feel the heat. We called downstairs again to ask if that was all the heat we would get out of it and they said yes and that they would,bring up a space heater for us. No heat? In the Bay Area in January?!

    The bathroom is minuscule with quite possibly the smallest sink I've ever seen and that includes ones we've had on cruise ships.

    The continental breakfast was awful. They had maybe five different types of pastries (most were stale), yogurt, bananas and hard boiled eggs. The coffee was not drinkable, even my husband who needs his coffee couldn't drink it.

    The next time we are in Berkeley, I know to stay far away from this place.

    Dear cserver,

    At your earliest convenience I would love an opportunity to speak with you personally. My direct line is 510-809-4120. We certainly provide heat to all of our 144 guest rooms and typically the rooms become warm very quickly. We apologize this was not the experience we all expect. Also, the hotel provides a local favorite- Peets coffee in the morning. Its typically very consistent but we'll check the diagnostics on the machine to ensure its calibrated correctly. Above all, we want you to know this is not the typical experience as most of our guests leave with a very different and extremely positive impression. We hope to earn your business again.

    Regards- Dell

  • Great hotel in a great location.

    by Zonadl on 2017-12-06 09:55 am

    We loved our stay at The Graduate. Everything from our large room to the location made our visit wonderful. We walked easily to the Cal campus for our tour and also to dinner the night before. The food was great in the hotel restaurant and every member of the staff treated us wonderfully.

  • Amazing boutique hotel - great location, staff and amenities!

    by Lindsey S on 2017-12-04 11:02 am

    I had an amazing stay Graduate Berkeley! The only downfall is that I did not get to stay longer. The staff was friendly, the decor was amazing, and the attention to detail to the rooms and amenities were beyond my expectations. The hotel is located within walking distance to many of the amazing spots Berkeley has to offer. I will definitely be staying here again and encourage travelers to check out this boutique hotel for a great experience.

  • Quirky hotel with great location

    by Passportlove09 on 2017-11-29 11:59 am

    I loved the funky, retro and quintessential Berkeley vibe of this boutique hotel! The decor and amenities met my expectations. I had no issues with my room or the service received. I enjoyed the onsite restaurant Henry's as well! The location could get no better for Cal events and walk ability around Berkeley!
