    Lots of Cal nostalgia

    The Graduate Hotel is very convenient to UC Berkeley and is full of Cal nostalgia. It has a fun vibe and guests feel like they are staying in a 1930's era hotel. The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. Although the linens were fresh, the room could use a good cleaning. It was difficult to control the temperature in the room and the radiator controls were covered in grime. The staff was friendly and efficient.

    Dog-eared, tired hotel.

    Very helpful staff. Hotel appearing aged. Floors and counters well-cleaned, but run-down, dog-eared and banged-up. Well (well) past time for refurbishment. Disappointing to see such a huge (huge) gap between what's presented on Web site, and the actual condition of the hotel. Had planned to stay at the Tucson Graduate property in January (on a recommendation from a co-worker), but will stay elsewhere on my trips to Cal.

    Staff was great! Resturant was appetizers, not meals except 1 burger option, that was a little bit of a bummer.

    -Overall this is a lovely hotels -nice decoration in the room - Very convenient for walking around Berkeley - It is quite noisy from the road outside on Friday night. -we can hear people from the next room speaking very clearly while stay in the room. -we asked for housekeeping service to change all bed sheets after stay over one week.we had to ask twice. And when they were cleaning , they did change the bedsheets without changing pillow sheets.
