Really bad...I did not even take a shower in there. Carpet disgusting - would not take my shoes off. Construction in the room next to me started at 9am, like loud demolition. Thankfully I left right away and was not sleeping anymore at that time.

Newly renovated rooms are beautiful. This is definitely a hidden gem in terms of location, ease of parking, strong Wifi, spacious and clean rooms, sleek room decor in Berkeley. Only complaint: the property stated that it came with a coffeemaker, my room didn't have one and the solution was to come down to the front desk for hot water/coffee when I needed (which I did but the whole point is to not have to go outside and leave your room--if I had known I would have brought a kettle for hot water and made my own tea/coffee).

Walking distance to UC Berkeley, room to park your car. Target store across the street.

The hotel seemed like it was getting remodeled so there was patches on the walls. The desks had holes and there was a huge gap under the door, the good thing is that the heater worked if not we would of been freezing all night. Don’t think I would be back

Hotel staff was very rude at both check-in and check-out. I called two days before inquiring after early check-in and was told i could check-in as early as one PM. Upon arrival, the man working the desk was extremely rude and didn't want to let me check in early. He finally let me check in early as i was in a wedding and needed to change and be at the venue before normal check-in at three o'clock. After returning to the room after the wedding, my wife and I found the bed to be very uncomfortable and the room to be very loud with noises from outside, including blouse from other rooms as well as train noise from the BART station located nearby. My wife and I very much regret staying at this hotel as we got very sleep, and what sleep we did get was so poor as to be basically non-existent. We should have driven the hour-and-a-half home instead of spending any time in this miserable hotel.

Clen place, with all the amenities and excellent staff. Breakfasts was good and is at walking distance from a Target in case you need stuff.

I never stayed in worst hotel in my life from recepcion to breakfest to rooms and they hardly speak english

This motel is convenient to our traveling needs. Have stayed at this motel before but it is now starting to show its age in the rooms. Lamp shades are dry and cracked. Furniture is scratched and dinged. Bathroom looks like it had been updated.

We went to a football game and this hotel is about 10 miles away from the stadium but the convince of the BART station 2 blocks away made it great for the price. I would stay here again when I visit.

Nice place to stay. Clean rooms and friendly staff.

Nice campus atmosphere. Lots of good restaurants, shops, art galleries. Much to see and do.

Honestly it's safe, and clean, some of the stuff is set up a little bit weird ( no closet, just a shelf with hangers, sliding bathroom door etc.) but its really a standard place to stay. Nothing fancy and the breakfast isn't much to write home about but if you need a place to stay without breaking the bank that is safe, has free parking (hard to find in the area), and not disgusting, then this place is an option.

The hotel is quite old, but it was remodeled in 2007 and served our needs quite well. There was no coffee in our room, but coffee was available in the lobby. Motel employees were very nice. As an example, when we returned to our room, the housekeeper told us that she hadn't cleaned it yet. We went to the lobby to wait. I a short time she came to the lobby and told us she had finished. The breakfast consists of cereals, sweet rolls, and breads. Still, I would rate it above many hotel breakfasts we have had. On the negative side, coffee seemed to run out to soon and staff were slow to make more. The trash can was always full and never seemed to be emptied. The area containing the food was small and only two people could access food at any one time. One person was running the desk and also maintaining the breakfast area. A very tasty Mexican restaurant is across the street. A Vietnamese and an Italian restaurant are next door. We would stay here again.

Excelente experiencia muy limpio el cuarto y cómodo!!
