I love the unique character of each room.

The location is fairly close to UC, Berkeley and is situated in a quiet neighborhood. Though breakfast is not available due to Covid, the other facilities are remarkable. You need to go to the front desk to get most of your items of need. There is no phone service from the room. Since the Inn is an old set of buildings, it needs upgrades with windows, carpets etc. while retaining its old-world charm. Overall, a great experience and we stayed for 8 days and were quite pleased.

I Love this Place. Beautiful with character

Room was rather dirty. Blinds were not installed. Many small insects flying around inside my room.

Beautiful inn and gardens. The inn is comprised of two beautiful old mansions.

The have a spider and insect problem. Each night I got bit by something got to the point my last two nights I couldn't sleep worrying about if I was going to get bit again.

This is an overpriced dump. Old buildings, with hard to access rooms on upper floors (no elevator), with limited parking in unsafe area. Lots of warning signs about not leaving anything in the car and broken car windows to prove it right.

The issue I had was that when we arrived, after having booked and paid for a reservation, we were told that there were no rooms available and they were totally booked :( It took over an hour to find another room that we could check in to at 1:30am but the front desk guy was great and let me borrow his phone to figure out our next move since mine was very low on battery.

We liked the beautifully Victorian decor of the public spaces and the beautiful gardens and outdoor seating areas. Unlike general hotel rooms, we had a gas lit fireplace making our room very romantic.

This hotel was a total bait and switch. The picture of the room we booked was NOTHING like what we got. We ended up in a postage sized room. My dorm room in college was bigger. Not worth the money AT ALL!
