There was an issue regarding the amount of deposit required for a pre-arranged and pre-paid room reservation. A $200 deposit was required on a one-night's prepaid stay even thought staff had earlier communicated by phone that the deposit would be $50. On-site manager threatened to cancel the reservation when the customer challenged these conflicting statements about the deposit amount.

I chose this motel for its location, which was perfect for me because it was very close to both the UC Berkeley campus and the BART station where you can catch the train to the SF airport. Although the room was on the small side, I was pleasantly surprised by how modern and well-maintained it was, with a very nice bathroom. Easy parking, easy to regulate heat, AC and lighting. My only complaint was that the sink was slow to drain. I would definitely stay here again.

The franchisee at this Travelodge recently invested in a total renovation, and it really shows. The rooms are bright with comfortable furniture and bedding. The stand-up showers are really excellent - spacious and modern with good water pressure, steady temperature, and nice shower heads. Breakfast was good.

Awesome. Clean rooms, friendly staff. All amenities and public transport are in close proximity.

Met all our needs. Clean, comfortable bed. Roomy shower. (No hair conditioner) walkable to restaurants and campus. Can’t beat the price. Free parking. Would stay here again.

VERY NICE PLACE for good price I liked that place so much I decided stay one more night (only one hotel we stay 2 nights on 2 week road trip) Stuff very nice and helpful

FYI- Check in office closes at midnight- flight was delayed and main office was locked and closed when I finally arrived at 11:30 pm. No lock on bathroom window. Thermostat had an error and didn't work. The iron kept exploding hot steam so I had to bail using it. Plugs sparked when I plugged in things. No drain cover in shower. Wish I could have slept in a jumpsuit based on everything else. I didn't expect much but I expected a little more.

this is a good value. unfortunately, there is limited parking, so had to park on the street till 9am and then move it to the parking lot. Plus, next door there is a lot of construction going on (End of Sept. 2015) so it was really noisy in the morning.

Kinda expected it to be in better conditions. It's a motel but the carpet was old, the bathroom smelled like crusted old bathroom even though it looked thoroughly cleaned. If it wasn't located so close to the university, I'd stay somewhere else. They also know how to upcharge during graduation time. The rates really do not reflect the value at all. They charge too much for small room and the convenience.

This hotel is conveniently located to UC Berkeley, but the accommodations are very basic. The furnishings and linens reminded me of a 1970s Motel 6. The staff were fine, but not particularly welcoming.

I had my mother visiting me for the weekend and I choose this hotel because of the location. It's very close to Downtown Berkeley and the bart station. The rooms looked clean and it had a microwave and refrigerator. Only complaint I have is there was alot of construction going on during the day.

Barkley is a really nice town and the location felt safe. We mainly took it because it was cheaper than taking a hotel in San Francisco and the public transportation comes quite often. But nothing special, a very simple hotel which served its purpose with a comfortable price.

We needed an overnight place to sleep. Considering the prices in the area we opted for the Travelodge. The location was great. Fairly quiet. The beds very comfortable. There was a lot of light emitted from the back of tv which was disturbing. The bathroom was somewhat moldy in places, vent didn't work, so we had to open the window. Breakfast was packaged rolls, some apples, etc. Nothing special. If we needed a one night sleep over we would stay there again because of the price.

Needed a place to stay for the night in Berkeley. I have not complaints for what I paid for. Rooms were clean, quiet, excellent location. I didn't care or expect a "high end" continental breakfast as there are so many places to try out in downtown Berkeley so why eat at the motel??? Walking distance to BART was ideal!!! So many different restaurants near makes this an ideal place to stay. Staff was friendly and the wi-fi had a strong signal. I'd have no problem staying here again!!! Like I said, I have no complaints for what I paid for!!!

It is a dump. Over priced. Miserable horrible beds. Terrible "continental breakfast".
