We were from Reno going to the Nevada Wolfpack game against Berkeley. The info on the hotel said it was a great place to go for the games and the the burgers were delicious etc. The site should have told us the place turns into a Frat House on game day. All the furniture is removed from the lobby for standing room only, my flip flops were sticking to the beer on the floor. We enjoy a good time and did like the place we just freaked out a bit when they asked if we reserved a parking place. Since we were staying at the hotel we assumed we would be able to park there, after talking to a few people they did find as a space for$50. we do not mind paying to park but we should have been warned that we would not have a spot. Next time we will stay in a hotel by the Marina....but is was quite a TRIP!

I had booked a deluxe double a few weeks before the reservation and received a confirmation that everything was all set. Just to be sure, I called about an hour before arriving. I called from a friends house, where I would have stayed had I know what I would be faced with. When I called the phone rang for about 3 min before it was answered. The person answered with a muffled hello, which sounded to me like a kid answering the phone. I had to ask if this was the hotel Durant. The answer was a less than confident yes. The person then seemed to become more professional and informed me that no more parking existed and that I would have to park on the street (hopefully). When I arrived the man behind the desk said that the notes on my file said that I had called earlier, to which I said yes. Then he told be that there were no more double doubles, but I might be able to get a roll away bed. This was a serious problem, since I was traveling with my wife and two children. Regardless, I had to raise a big stick, just to get I was confirmed for. This experience is worse than any I have every had interacting with an employee. He finished by being upset and insulting to me, since I stuck up for myself. I feel this type of employee should be fired on the spot. The poor service continued for the next two days, but you get the idea.
I would advise booking your Berkeley travel elsewhere.

They do not have air-conditioning and there are no screens on the windows. This means that you have to keep your window open and let the bugs in. That wouldn't be so bad, but they have a bar in the hotel and lots of college kids in the neighborhood. Sence your window has to be open you get no sleep with all the crazy drunk people yelling outside ALL night. There is mold growing every where and the fuses for the electricty kept blowing every time we plugged in our laptop. No way would I let my friends stay there and I will never stay there again either.
