"OK hotel, probably would not re-book"
Was expecting a little more for what we paid for.. the room was very cramped, we were supposed to get a king with a pullout sofa, ended up getting 2 queens, which left no room for a baby crib.. the cleanliness of the room was lacking, there was actually one of those kid's sticky hand toys stuck to the ceiling.. very obvious and could be seen when we […] walked into the room..

"Horrible stay - you wouldn't want to know."
First of all the room was tiny (not a surprise in the vicinity of a large town SFO). But the heater in the room turned on every 10 minutes and ran for 6 minutes with a racket that didn't permit us to sleep for the entire night. On checkout, the check out person was sympathetic. We stayed for the previous 3 nights at Hilton Double Tree, Livermore, CA. […] It was a first class hotel and we were very pleased there. Compared to it Berkeley Marina is a dump.

"Nice hotel, close to water. Helpful staff."
One disappointment - hotel did not receive/honor Expedia request for king bed WITH pullout couch for our son. At checkin those rooms were full and to avoid fire hazard we were in a not-as-nice outer building with roll away bed. However, they did waive the roll away bed fee. The lounge was comfy and lively at night. Super fun kids pool and a separate […] lap swim pool however not standard 25 yd size. We very much enjoyed our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We are in the area often and were thrilled to have found this hotel. It is convenient, lovely and a soothing retreat from all the hustle and bustle. Being able to walk around the marina area is a delight. We'll be back!Genuine Expedia guest review
We loved the family swimming pool. The kids really enjoyed the fact that the pool was open until 11pm. We also loved the chocolate chip cookies that were given to us at the time of check in and check out. The only complaint I have, would have to be, for the price of what is charged per night there should be a complementary breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, very pleasant staff"
Very pleasant, the only think i did not like was the layout of the hotel, you may be in for a long walk if you get a room at building 3 or 4. But you can also more your car closer to the room - the hotel staff will advise you.Genuine Expedia guest review
"located on a marina with great views"
quality restaurants near by with views of the cityGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is located by the marina, quite and extremely nice area. Plus it is easy access to the town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"First stay in Berkeley"
Great, hotel stay, price and comfort was good. So close to San Francisco without the city husleGenuine Expedia guest review
THE ROOM WAS FAR FROM THE LOBBY AND GOING TO THE POOL (BESIDE THE LOBBY) WAS DIFFICULT. COOKIES @ FRONT DESK WHEN ARRIBED WAS A PLUS. RESTAURANT IS HIDDEN BESIDE THE CONVENTIONS AREA. HOTEL LOOKS OLD BUT FAIR.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Berkeley Marina Doubletree"
The rooms appearance was pleasing and welcoming, newly refurbished however the sliding door didn't work properly, it took concerted effort to open and close! Also even though I pay to have web service wherever I go on my iPad, due to the hotel property's blocking out all internet signals unless you pay for theirs made our phone and iPad devices unable […] to connect to the web....therefore we had to drive off the property to the nearby marina to access the web to change our ressies for brunch the following day with friends in sf....wouldn't stay there again...nice touch however they serve great coffee!

"Very noisy room"
The walls were thin and you could hear people talking on both sides.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel over the marina."
The hotel is well laid out overlooking the marina, unfortunately our room at ground floor looked over the car park and was very noisy. The staff are ok but not over helpful. The real problem is the location - a good 30 minute walk fro Berkeley town thus requiring the hotel shuttle which runs at infrequent times and is easily filled. If you reason to […] stay at the hotel is to visit San Francisco city, you should just forget it as this involves using very expensive taxis ($50 per one way trip) or taking the Bart train- not good!!

"Okay for a short break"
Room facilities were average, lacked a fridge, safe, and the multi building set up meant unruly hotel guests seemed to go unchecked in late noise. We were disappointed with the overall value for money, wifi facility was charged as an extra and given we booked two rooms frankly unacceptable having them on different floors. Also it was first time I have […] ever had house keeping try to clean my room before 8.30am when still asleep...... Sure there are better options in the Bay Area.

"Near a family home I'm selling"
The hotel was great: I had a plane departure change so had to alter my plans at the hotel. Hotels.com and the hotel worked it out quickly and fairly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were disappointed in this hotel. It was a bit old and stained, not to mention that it was the most expensive on a 3 week trip. The additional charge for wifi didn't help either.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Where's the wifi ?"
Really, in this day and age for a $200 room, to have to pay more? Keep your cookies and room phones give us wifi like every other $100 a night hotel does. Get with the times, Hilton!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We just stayed one night but we enjoyed the service and loved the surrounded area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Most enjoyable. Room was large and very spacious, however, the bathroom was a tight fit - vanity is outside the rest of the bathroom and close to the bed - not the best layout. Lighting the the bath area was lacking. Hallways could definitely do with sprucing up. Location gets you out of the city and down with lovely views of the Marina and the Bay […] (if there is no fog!) Great pool and location for families. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Vist to Berkeley"
The three best features of this hotel are the location next to the marina and park, the restaurant, and the cleanliness of the room. The marina and park are excellent for walking and photographs. The two restaurant dinners and the accompanying service were excellent. The rooms were kept unusually clean and orderly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice marina/ocean views"
it was conveniently located for our needs, a nice place to walk around.Genuine Expedia guest review
Found the room to be smaller than other hotels we had stayed in on our trip. Room was clean and well decorated. Was a bit out of the way for restaurants and nightlife. However, very peaceful so it depends what you want.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was very nice, just across the bay from the city. Th room was comfortable, though a little small for three of us. The staff was friendly. Overall, a decent hotel for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would be nice if had sea view room"
Make sure if you could get the room with see view. There wasn't such choice when we booked the room. Wasted a chance for great view...And internet is surcharge.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great staycation for people with kids!"
Very nice, smiling and friendly staff. Two pools and two saunas was really great for families with children and a separate one for adults who wanted to have a kid-free environment. The rooms were tastefully decorated. And there is a free shuttle that will drop you within a three mile radius and pick you up if you want to grab a bite at a restaurant […] on the other side of Berkeley.

"Nice hotel close to 4th Street, beach and freeway."
The room had a lovely view of the harbor and it was clean. It was a quiet place to relax and be close to all of the activities we needed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay for the 4th"
We chose here for the location and were not disappointed. Very friendly staff. Great location right next to the marina. Walking/biking trails. Watch the boats. nice restaurant/bar. Exterior shows a little wear but rooms were nice. Like many others, we watched the Berkeley fireworks right from the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the price"
The pictures definitely dont do justice to the place as they are surely overrated. The hotel shows signs of lack of maintenance. The area was blocked even for the guests and no guests were allowed to come back to the hotel until after 12:30 am. though i understand that it was due to the 4th of July festival but since its just a big inconvenience they […] should definitely let their customers be aware of the situation prior to booking. With the price tag for their rooms you don't get the expected level of service. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone until the do upgrades. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great East Bay location with seaside restaurant!"
This hotel was fantastic for families! I was traveling with 2 kids for an event at UC Berkeley and it was very easy for us to get there by car first thing in the morning. Also very close drive to Target and other stores in Emeryville. Kids found the seaside location of this hotel very exciting, and we ended up adding additional nights to vacation in […] the marina for the low Expedia rate we got--extremely reasonable given that it is seaside in SF Bay! The restaurant has an unbelievable bay view with an incredible sunset at dusk and very low priced kids meals and a reasonably priced bar menu for adults, along with the more elegant and expensive seafood entrees. The breakfast buffet in the morning is one of the best I've seen! There is a family pool for kids that also has the marina view. Our stay there turned into a great family vacation! You do need a car to get around, but things are very close. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Would stay again"
Beautiful trials, good service, clean rooms, awesome scenery! Room and bed was a little small, but it was all I needed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Berkeley Marina Hilton had friendly, helpful staff. A great, affordable breakfast buffet. Good location. They even have fresh hot cookies.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend this hotel for any type of getaway or meeting. There rooms are very nice and updated. The views out to the Marina is lovely. Carpets in the hallways where the rooms are need replacing, but everything else was just wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rates too high for the location."
The staff failed to notify us that we needed to reverify an additional night's stay. They blocked our room key without notifying us and we were shut out of our building and our room when we returned at 10:30 PM. Two staff persons involved did not even apologize and made it seem like it was our fault. Totally unacceptable customer relations. Otherwise […] our stay was unmemorable.

The overall stay was excellent. The hotel restaurant staff needs some improvement, tables were not cleared, service was poor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Stay June 2013, Room 3208"
The room was sufficiently quiet. It had one of those noisy single room built in HVAC units, but the weather was cool enough that I didn't need any heating or air conditioning the night of my stay. When will hotel designers show concern for noise from HVAC?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"ok but could be better"
a microwave and fridge in the room would make it better. instead you have to eat at their restaurant and pay the price. but we liked the separate pool and spa for adults only.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful view of Berkeley Marina"
Unfortunately, the elevator was out of order in the building we were staying in. The layout is a bit confusing - thank goodness for the map that the front desk provided. Every time someone opened/closed the door to their room, a loud bang could be heard in everyone else's room. This kept us awake most of the night each night we stayed. The view from […] our room was fantastic! There was a very nice ocean breeze that came in through the sliding glass door. I appreciated the fitness center and that we did not have to pay extra to use it! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Berkely is a lovely location not far from San Fran"
It is a little older but well maintained and the staff is great, very helpful. They have a small bar and restaurant with nice food and a great view of the marina. This was my third stay here and if I am back in the area I would be happy to stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Personnel great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful mother-daughter weekend"
I checked into the Berkeley Marina Doubletree with my elementary school-age daughter. She wanted to spend time "just with Mommy," and fleeing to a local hotel was the best way to escape. We logged a lot of pool time--it's perfect for a seven year-old--and the chocolate chip cookies at checkin were appreciated by both of us. The staff was very friendly, […] helpful, and in general made our stay terrific. We'll be back for more mother-daughter weekends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice accomodations, Good customer service."
Nice place, Unfortunately really bad access road going out to the Berkeley Marina Location. I suggest that Hilton Lobby the city to repave the single, terrible public road. Room was comfortable, attentive staff, Suggest a service elevator be installed, so guests dont have to compete with staff for usage of elevators.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
enjoyed it very much long walk to lobby area handsome dining roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Quiet, relaxed hotel at a bayside marina quickly accessible beyond the hustle of the city and very close to downtown Berkeley.Genuine Expedia guest review
