This hotel is smack dab in the middle of Berkeley's University ave. You turn into the parking lot from this main street and immediately you are in an old quiet sanctuary from Berkeley's past. No street noise or daily life penetrates that entrance. The hotel is set around a parking lot which is in turn set around a quaint water...

I have stayed here on business for years now. It is right on University Ave. within walking distance to UC Berkeley and Shattuck area. Great location for shops and eating. The hotel is a courtyard style and you park right by your room. Very convenient. Rooms are safe and clean and the staff are great and always helpful and friendly....

Stayed here for 6 nights helping my child move to Berkeley. Very central location. Safe and well lit. The entrance is off University (gps tried to take us to Berkeley Way -street behind). A/c worked well. Maid service was excellent - room clean and items restocked daily. Room had good lighting. There was a fridge and small microwave. The shower...

Our family of 4 stayed 3 nights in room 105, with 2 double beds. On arrival late afternoon we discovered a used toothpick from a previous guest and other smaller dirt particles on the carpet. We chose to ignore it, expecting them to be gone after the next day's room cleaning. The next day my two children and I had...

We opened the door to our room last week and were knocked over by the smell, like dirty socks and pee and old dirt. We were so bummed, but we had family coming in so we were stuck. we never took our shoes off and refused to shower here too. It may be $100 cheaper than the Holiday Inn Express...

This hotel would be acceptable if the rate were close to $100. However, at close to $200 with taxes, it is unacceptable for a room to have an odor, for walls and furniture to be discolored, for moldings to be worn, for furnishings to be dated. The bathroom was clean, but when I had to lift the mattress to find...

Breakfast was included, but they fail to mention they don't have room for you to eat. They had 4 or 5 two seat tables squeezed into the reception room. It was so small, that only one person at a time could effectively get food and/or coffee at a time. One guest was criticized and embarrassed for taking too much food...

We chose to stay here mainly because of its price as it is much cheaper than most other hotels in the Bay Area. It turned out to be a great choice! The location is perfect as you're situated near a BART station and are also in walking distance of much of Berkeley. There are some great restaurants in the area...

This is a motor court style play tucked away in a city environment. Room was very small but manageable. It would be better if bed were moved to side and a small night stand placed beside it to hold glasses and phone. Replace heavy bed spread with light weight easily washable one. Bath was remodeled. AC was noisy unusable and...
