Hotel was close to my location. Stuff and cleanliness was ok. The only thing we didn’t like the room was so small. Booked for 4 people but there was two full size bed. Expected two queen bed. Otherwise it was ok.

Rooms are not made up everyday unless you specifically ask. This is supposed to be GREEN. A scam to save money. Also, there are not enough parking spaces for all guests. Frustrating.

How close it is to my meeting site. It is perfect walking distance.

Very friendly receptionist. Clean and comfortable room. Good parking . good location.

Very modest hotel....staff unaware of close restaurants.....staff did not clean room in one visit...parking was easy and free.

Nice rooms with all the ammenities. Had no issues and the staff was very nice to us.

An okay place to stay, not the best but not the worst.

This hotel is pretty much what you would expect for the star level. We slept well as the AC was good and the bed was comfortable enough. Pillows too small and breakfast was poor. Friendly reception staff.

Wasn't real sure about the place when we showed up. The outside looked like a little hole in the wall hotel. However, it seemed to be run by a small family operation and the inside was great. Staff was excellent and the room was nice with a great bed, new flooring and paint. The place was clean and provided internet, parking and breakfast for free. Will definitely stay there again when visiting m daughter!

Clean and comfortable. Has a fridge and microwave, and there is Trader Joe's 1 block away. Walls are thin, but I was lucky to have respectful neighbors.

Given the market in Berkeley, this hotel provides good service, nice accommodation, and a good location at the median price for a mid-grade hotel. It is noticeably better than some similarly priced hotels nearby.

I picked this place because it was walking distance to my cousin's house but will never again stay here. The toilet was broken, the bed creaked every time I turned, the pillows were midget sized and my towel was completely shredded. It's obvious that every possible corner is cut in order to save money. I think the towel was the deal breaker for me because you can replace a towel for under $5 and the one in my room should have been trashed and replaced a long time ago. It was almost insulting that they would fold that up and leave it for a guest to use. Lastly, the walls are ridiculously thin! I could hear every word of conversations going on outside our room and could not sleep due to the constant knocking on the door of the room next to ours throughout the night.

It was very shabby. Not really worth staying there unless really, really desperate.

We booked this hotel because it's located relatively close to BART and the UC Berkeley campus, but that is where the advantages of this property end. The problems started before we even got into the room. The key card system on our room seemed to be having problems, and it took us multiple tries to get the cards to work. This problem persisted even after having the keys remagnetized. When we got in the room we noticed a bit of a musty smell, which we later traced to the mini fridge, which wasn't actually keeping anything cold. The room itself was relatively standard and comfortable, but there were some strange features like odd light switches and occupancy sensors, and the tv system was not very user friendly. The shower was good, which is very important to me, but when I got out, I found the towels were threadbare and fraying in spots. Even little things were problematic: one of the hangers in the closet didn't actually fit on the closet bar, and the handle on one of the nightstands was broken. All in all, it seems like the staff puts very little effort into maintaining this property. Avoid this hotel if you can.

There are a few 2-star hotels on University Ave. at Berkeley most of which I stayed at. Quality Inn is among the better ones: the breakfast although nothing special is better than others. Staff availability is better. Location is pretty good. However, it usually is more expensive than the competition.

First room we were given had an awful musty smell. We thought it was just the ocean moistness causing this. We changed rooms the next night. This room smelled better though still slightly like the other room. Beds were comfortable. Rooms are quiet. Staff is friendly.

Nice place. Clean. Comfortable. Friendly staff. Would stay again

Location was great...other than that, hard to find a parking spot...small room...power outlets not working, bathroom was clean and up to date, morning breakfast was under the expectations..."not enough milk for kids", had to wait 25 min to bring some more !!!...very poor choices...overall a high priced motel that did not delivered.
