  • Hipster hotel with a whimsical "school' theme.

    by emilyjI8965PZ on 2019-06-15 03:39 pm

    Decor and atmosphere was great. The bathrooms could use a little updating, but apart from that we loved the property. You can't get any closer to the university so location is excellent if that is the purpose of your stay.

  • Great Location

    We like to stay here as its located next to Unit 1 where my daughter lives.Feels like home and love coming back to it. Staff are very accomodative whether it is storing stuff, early check in , late check out etc.
    In short it feels like home away from home.

  • Solid hotel, super close to UC Berkeley

    by Jenny_in_Palo_Alto on 2019-05-28 07:49 pm

    We had a pretty nice 2-night stay at The Graduate. It's incredibly close to UC Berkeley, though this means it sounds a little rowdy outside in the evenings if school is in session. And the room was nicely furnished with the kitschy school theme appropriate for being so close to campus. The linens were nice. Check in went very smoothly.
    On the downside, the hallways were a bit dingy and the bathroom had no fan so it fogged up a ton when showering.
    The gym is tiny and has old equipment, but is certainly better than having no fitness center.

  • Graduation Festivities

    by byttrup on 2019-05-23 04:21 pm

    Loved the very affordable Berkeley. It felt warm and cozy for an especially cold and rainy May graduation. While some may not appreciate the kitschy decor, we thought it was charming. We really enjoyed our time there.

  • Good choice

    by 368annaw on 2019-05-09 10:14 am

    We stayed for 4 nights in a double room with view on the Campanile Tower. It was a corner room so very light with all the windows. As the building is pretty old, there is noise coming from the street. We had a room with a connecting door to another room. We could sometimes almost literally hear our neighbours talking . They must have experienced the same with us and we were 4 occupying our room. We put some bedding in front of the door to try to cut the noise. If not fully booked, I'd suggest leaving one of those kinds of rooms empty. Bathroom was pretty dated, that could use some improvement. We loved the decor of the hotel, the door keys and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location close to campus and a 15-minute walk to downtown Berkely for BART and restaurants. When staying in Berkeley for a visit to campus, this is definitely a good pick.

    Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the natural light in your room as well as the look of the hotel. Graduate takes a lot of pride in every detail that you see in the lobby and the room, all the way down to our UCB alumni room keys. I do apologize for any inconvenience the noise of your neighbors caused, and we are more than happy to accommodate you with a room on the quieter side of the hotel, or away from neighbors if our availability allows it. As for the bathroom, we will reach out to our maintenance team to look into possible improvements. Again, we are excited to hear that you plan on staying with us again and we hope to see you in the near future. Thanks again!
