Needed accommodation close to the University. It was perfect.

Graduate Berkeley
Graduate Berkeley overall was pleasant. Guys at the front desk were friendly and very informative about the area. Only complain I have was the room was very small and the sink in the batbroom was tiny. Other than that, I'd recommend the place... especially if you have something planned out in the area. Right across the street you have a bunch of resturants and a plazas.

Great Stay
We thorougly enjoyed our stay at the Graduate and would do it again! Loved the student ID card room keys and the "studying" do not disturb signs. Very clever. Great location. Friendly, helpful staff.
