I found the room (one king size bed) to be very clean, with new carpeting, comfortable bed, good TV and wi-fi, iron, mini-fridge, microwave, and nice bathroom. I was perfectly fine staying here for 3 nights and wasn't looking for anything fancy as I was in town on business. Its proximity to a BART Station allowed me to travel to...

Fair Oaks, California, United States
Reviewed 9 October 2016

I had booked four rooms for colleagues for a work project in the area. Several conferences were going on in the east bay and room prices get jacked up to ridiculous levels. Even so $185 a night for a small room with tattered lamp shades, lumpy carpets and a non-working TV was more than excessive. The rooms were booked and...

We stayed here for two nights while visiting relatives in the area. This meant we wanted a property that was close to I-80 and also convenient for access to major city streets in Berkeley and Oakland. Price was also an object. Everything worked well, the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. Parking was convenient. Watch your step when you leave...

Spent two nights with my wife and family. Found the hotel clean, staff very accommodating, decent continental breakfast, and overall not bad for the price. Already recommended to another family member and would stay again.

Headed to Berkeley for the Cal-Texas game. No availability at other hotels so ended up booking the Rodeway Inn on University. Now, this is not the Four Seasons by any means, but we were pleasantly surprised with the clean rooms, great location and noise-free environment. Updated bathrooms plus fridge and micro in the vanity area. Easy, safe walking to restaurants,...

Went to Berkeley for the Cal-Texas game. Since most everything was sold out I ended up booking at the Rodeway Inn on University Avenue. Now this is not the Four Seasons by any means, but it was decent and inexpensive. The rooms are small but clean. The hotel is one level built around a courtyard with free parking. Exceptionally quiet...
