Score from 111 reviews Excellent
The hotel had great proximity to the university. Easy walking to shops and restaurants. It was clean and nice linens on bed and in bathroom.
The hotel is old and dated. The decor dates back to the 70's. The bathroom was extremely tiny with no counter space.
Bar closes before 10pm. Bar and restaurant smells of dead fish
My son and I were visiting Berkeley and it is as close as any hotel could be. The staff was friendly and helpful.
The room was a little dated and musty. The lobby was in restoration during our stay and the sitting areas were not useable.
Ease of access, good staff, excellent location near UC campus and many restaurants, etc.
Room was rather old-fashioned (sink in the bedroom area vs. separate small room for shower/toilet) & too cramped for a queen-sized bed
Nothing staff only talked about how busy they were got wrong room TV inoperable too much money for this place not worth it over rated
Overpriced for out-dated decor, squeaky beds and strange odor.
College game-day atmosphere was outstanding, and the beach party out back was a real hit for pre-game fun. Henry's Bar remains a classic and well worth a return visit for alumni living out of the area.
The hotel amenities were good, but the rate they charged for location/services is more consistent with the famous Berkeley spa hotel to the East.
Location and staff
Small rooms Expensive
A very well run and clean facility. With a great location to Memorial Stadium and "Top Dog" stand.
No real complaints, except price for room was higher than other places in area I had previously stayed at. Then again considering location, I accepted it.
Room size. Bathroom size. Ridiculously small sink. No hot water.
location, location and location. the room is clean and staffs are friendly.
The hotel is old and the room is kind of small. The cable didn't have the channel to watch Berkeley home game.
Convenient to Berkeley campus
Poor lighting in rooms, overpriced, bad decor, staff seemed tired and unengaged
Location. Pleasant concierge.
Convenience, location, quaint.
Berkeley needs to do a power wash, the streets just stunk of garbage...
Liked how close it was to UC Berkeley
super small cramped rooms, paint peeling off the walls, room smelled, no trash can in the room, no ICE for ice bucket, VERY LOUD and thin walls. They tried to duplicate a dorm room feel but they missed the mark. I felt like i was sleeping in an old bedroom in my great grandma's house.
The staff was super helpful, handy wifi, convenient location and clean.Have on numerous occasions stayed at the Hotel Durant.
This was the first time to have stayed in a room on the 1st floor. No view. and the bathroom was way too small. Not up to the standards that I have come to expect from this hotel. Luckily it was for only one night instead of a week like I usually stay.
Great location, city center was at walking distance. Nice personnel.
Parking spaces are extremely tight, was very hard to get our car in the right spot
Rooms small but comfortable. Windows open. Good drapes, no light seepage. Bath ok. small sink area. In general a very nice hotel.
The location is great to attend a concert at the greek theater, within walking distance. Close to a lot of restaurants. Room was nice & clean.
The view from our room that looked out to the front of the hotel was questionable (dirty frat house with garbage everywhere). Did self parking as directed by the doorman. While checking in we were told self parking was full (3 spaces open). They gave us a window pass anyway when they could tell I wasn't happy.
Just everything was awesome! We had a lovely stay :) Thumbs up to the free coffee and tea in the room :)
The hot water in the shower would sometimes suddenly switch to cold
all the staff - especially Ricki
Room was small
I like the comfort, cleanliness and quietness. I really appreciate that my need for a quiet location was looked into.The staff were in general helpful especially the person at the reception on the day of my arrival. i wish I remember his name as he went all out to be helpful!!!
When it comes to receiving letters I wish those at the front desk were clearer as to whether it is possible particularly if the mail arrives after I leave. I am told it is possible but when I enquired after leaving a few days later, the reception seems to be unaware of this possibility. The outcome is I did not receive the mail though the sender confirmed mailing it. It caused some inconveniences and I am lucky that it did not become worse than that. Please do be clear of the policy on this and ensure that the reception staff knows as well.
bed was uncomfortable and bedding smelled stale like smoke
The work desks in the rooms are BY FAR the best I've ever used in a hotel -- plenty of in-desk outlets, great lamp, excellent work chair, lots of desk space, place for pens, pads, books and the desk in my room was next to a window. In room snacks, which I never use, but its good to know that when working late there are supplies at hand. Robes in the room. It is well-located -- great food nearby and in the hotel restaurant, interesting books in the lobby, comfy chairs for reading/waiting, excellent music in the lobby (inspired me to walk to Rasputin's and get a some music that I always wanted, but hadn't picked up yet). I would have stayed longer if I had time.
I had to think for a negative. An adapter for the iPhone dock would have been nice, but my computer worked just as well.
After booking a separate three nights straight through the hotel to add to my booking.com booking, I called to apply an online-advertised discount to my stay. There were no stipulations that would have prevented them from adding this discount, but after multiple phone calls and messages left on the account manager's voicemail, I didn't even receive a call back. Very disappointing. older building--also beware that the walls are thin, It can be loud...
