"Seeing family in Berkeley and Alcatraz."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Great location for our needs. Beautiful views from our room facing the bay. Used the hot tub and it was down for a few hours and the front desk called me to tell me it was fixed. Great front desk help. Friendly and informative. Personal pet peeve, TV not facing the bed. Will be back.

"Room key did not work properly."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Key would not work properly. Your team tried several time to fix it. Finally offer to change room evening of the second night. Wasn't worth the work/hassle due to my departure time.

                    "Everything went excellent. I'm really glad I decided to go with both your company and Sierra Suites for accommodations for my wedding. People are now wishing there were more Sierra Suites around. They were even kind enough to offer the discounted rate to those people that weren't sure they'd make to the wedding until after the cutoff date. I have already referred someone to your service for a wedding she's planning in Michigan." R.S. - Parsippany, NY
