Although this hotel is old it is very clean and staff very welcoming. Great location near the campus. Plenty of great restaurants and shopping. I would stay here again if I visit the area. Drive into the hills of Berkeley for the best sunset ever.

Very convenient hotel on the edge of downtown Berkeley. It is located right off the expressway so easy to navigate even if you don't know Berkeley. It is also easy to get to the University from here. There are a lot of interesting shops and restaurants within walking distance. Hotel stay was problem free and breakfast downstairs was better than...

I found it well-located at 5 minutes driving time to my business meeting place, also close to the entrance to the highway and not far from downtown of Berkeley. The accommodation is ok (I also had a refrigerator and a l micro-wave oven). The included breakfast is...

Popped in for two nights for a Cal football game and stayed here. Free parking, free wifi and free breakfast included. My room was clean, bed comfy, great shower, no complaints. The front desk people were very friendly and helpful. I forgot my iPhone charger at home and they lent me one for my stay. Really kind. Will definitely stay...

Yes, price seems to fluctuate but if you book in months in advance you can grab a great deal. Price was $140 a night, great location, close to the freeway and trader joes. Pro: Room was clean and the bathroom seemed updated. Room also included a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast is also...

This hotel charges a different amount each day of your stay depending on their census. You get a very high rate if they fill up. Definitely not worth the price of admission. Breakfast is poorly done. Noisy - you can hear your neighbors clearly.

Reviewed 1 September 2016

Management has built a cohesive and responsive team that will respond to any and all requests in a timely manner - frequently going WAY beyond quality service. Did not partake of morning food stuffs or coffee, so can't comment on that part of the business. Plans in the works to upgrade the washer and dryer (my only complaint).
