My partner & I rented the apartment at Mary’s B&B for 9 days in order to have a "base" from which to help my daughter & son-in-law with last minute preparations for a big party to celebrate their recent marriage. As well, my mother stayed in the pink garden room for 4 days. Our stay was everything we'd hoped for...

Highly recommended! This was a comfortable home away from home. The neighborhood is very beautiful with trees hanging over the small street. While centrally located, it is a quiet street with no traffic noise. The beds were comfy and we slept very well in the quiet neighborhood. My husband and I were very pleased with this place, and the woman...

What a delightful experience! Mary’s B&B is charming, comfortable, and squeaky clean. A perfect location for all the sites in Berkeley. The views of the Golden Gate are gorgeous. Mary is a superbly gracious hostess − attentive to every need (including good restaurants in the area). My favorite room is the yellow room and I look forward to settling in...

I stayed at this B&B many times from 2006-2008. It is a well located residence on a quiet street close to Bekeley center and not too far from San Francisco downtown and all of the East Bay. Some rooms have views of the Golden Gate Bridge. There is excellent cuisine nearby in Berkeley and Rockridge. It is close to beautiful...

What a joy it was to be at Mary's for two and a half weeks when I needed to help my daughter with her newborn baby. Mary provided warm friendship, great conversations, delicious breakfasts, welcome support, and a beautiful, expansive room in which to recover, rest, and savor the view. To her special neighborhood and our "second home" , I...

We have stayed at Mary's regularly over the last few years. A home- away- from home in a quiet tree- lined residential neighborhood. Beautiful old house full of character. Well appointed bedrooms with every comfort, prettily decorated and furnished. Always a nice welcome and a great breakfast. We unhesitatingly recommend a stay with Mary!

My wife I and spent four nights at Mary’s B&B in Berkeley and really enjoyed our stay while we were on holiday in the Bay Area.

My husband, 2 daughters and I have stayed at Mary's everytime we have gone to Berkeley since we moved from there in 1996...so it's been 13 years. We have stayed in every room. They are all wonderful but our favorite is the apartment downstairs. Her taste in decor is elegant and yet simultaneously cozy and homey. Her breakfasts are generous,...

"After a very pleasant stay at Mary's Bed and Breakfast I would like to share my experience with others who might be looking for a recommendation in Berkeley.

“We stayed in the green room, which according to Mary is one of the warmer rooms. For us that was fine, because we were traveling in January. It was comfortable, being neither too warm nor too cold.”
