Best digs in Berkeley!

I had to check in late as my flight did not come in until after 8pm, so I expected a cranky hotel... See full review

Stayed here for a night, the room was small but good for the price. It was clean and neat.

Quick business trip

This is a budget hotel, and if you are okay with that it's a fine choice. The room was small but comfortable, and included a mini-fridge, coffee maker and a tv. I found the desk staff to be courteous. The breakfast is very basic--prepackaged oatmeal, cereal, cinnamon rolls, and yogurt, and some coffee and OJ. It's easy to walk up University Ave. to the shops and restaurants of Berkeley, or to get to the UC campus.

Not what I expected

It was an OK experience. I had read before on reviews that they don't have "breakfast", but I did not believe until the guy at the reception told me they had doughnuts in the mornings (he told this in a way that I understood: phhhh you want breakfast ?!?!?!).

Truly 2 star (bordering on 1 star) hotel

I want to start by saying that I stay at Super 8 all over the country and generally have a great experience. Not this time. The room is tiny. I'm not sure how two people would actually fit in there. The location was ok...in the "bordering the ghetto" sort of way. The continental breakfast was pretty much non-existent. Either they didn't put stuff out or they didn't refresh it (I was there daily at 8am). Plus, I had to battle the manager's family members for space in the little breakfast area. I guess the little kid in diapers was cute, but I was under the impression this was for hotel guests. I felt like I was intruding on their family breakfast time. The pillow were the pits, there weren't extra blankets and the room was freezing. The carpet was wet in several spots (ewww). Overall, I was less than impressed and will pony up the extra $30-$40 it costs to stay elsewhere.

One of the most terrible experiences

The staff was very unpleasant, I don't know why, maybe he is merely employee for this small building. The room was too small, the heater was noisy not working properly; I had to plug off once in a while. It was the most terrible experience in a few years. I would never recommend this one to anybody.

Average

Average hotel. The thing that stands out is that when I asked about the breakfast, which supposedly was included in the price, the guy at the front desk told there will be donuts in his office. This was ofending and ridiculous, but I did not say anything. And also the main office had a very heavy spicy food smell.

Lock the door...

and I'm sure everything will be fine. (The little envelopes on your room keys tell you so!) This is a surprisingly sketchy block of University for being so close to the more thriving areas of downtown. The bathroom is nicely remodeled but the traffic noise, men cat-calling you in the parking lot and the screaming psychotic homeless woman outside will remind you to do like the key envelope says...
