Knights Inn Berkeley CA

1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room is small and only one chair but far better than the last place we stayed in. We visit the area often to visit our son and have had horrible experiences with very swank hotels. At Knights Inn our room was ready for us and very clean. More than I can say about other hotels. The staff is friendly and helpful. Parking is free and near. So is the Bart Station. Rooms are nothing fancy but there is a frig and microwave. The bed was very comfortable. Nice shower and, again, very clean. A nice simple place to stay We stayed 4 nights. The breakfast to go is simple. Cold cereal, pastries, fruit, juice, and coffee. The only "bad" thing was the coffee in the room was poor. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay perfectly. We will be back.

Clean room and very friendly staff. I would certainly stay here again. Room was small, but well-appointed. It looked like it had recently been updated. It is obvious that the staff cares about your experience. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a clean and safe place to sleep in Berkeley.

Room was clean, modern. Staff were brilliant! Nothing was too much for them, desk is manned 24hr a day too. Close to lots of shops and restaurants. Not too far from downtown Berkeley Bart station. >$10 for a cab

Excellent location if you have meetings at UC Berkeley and very convenient access from San Francisco airport. Staff was extremeley friendy, helpful and efficient. A very nice, tranquil Motel with free wifi access. Nice clean and spacious room with comfortable bed. Worth the money paid for the stay.

Discovered this place by accident and so glad I did. From the initial greeting from Sam who was very helpful in accommodating me at short notice and providing lots of information on the local area. Tish the owner is really passionate about her business and it shows in the quality of accomodation, professional services provided and friendly attitude of all staff. I would not hesitate to stay here again when in Berkeley. A gem of a place.

Best place to stay near the University of California. Clean, quiet and secure. No bells and whistles but comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. The only down fall is the selection of restaurants and bars in the area on foot but it's a $5-$10 cab ride to these places.

This hotel is a nicely renovated and clean no-frills place to stay. Free WiFi was fast and reliable. I would rate it a 4 but the claim of "free breakfast" (just cereal and apples) is misleading so -1.

I have stayed at the Knights Inn in Berkeley 3 times recently. It is comfortable, the bed luxurious, the amenities - the mini-fridge, microwave, and tv - are just what I need to unwind after a long drive up, and to keep me going during my stay.

I liked it there. Very, very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. I had not been looking for a 5 star luxury hotel, I could afford. The "Knights Inn" is basic and simple. It is not in an upscale part of town. I was a bit hesitant, when I booked it. But I was pleasantly surprised. Well run, very sympatico managers. The room spotless clean. I stayed for a work week. It seems, most other guests were also traveling for work; normal people, quiet at night. I liked it!

I like the place cuz it's nice and clean. It's so silent so we can get a good rest, also there a nation giant hamburger shop nearby that still open until late night and have a good taste. A comfy bed that make u oversleep definitely.
