Culver City, California
Reviewed 9 January 2017

I was extremely impressed by the accommodations at Travelodge Berkeley. Not what I expected at all. I thought it would be like Motel 6, bare bones accomodations. Rooms were clean, amenities were numerous, and I had an awesome night's sleep. I'd stay here again, not just because it's centrally located, but it is a great value for what you do...

They kept 50 dollars of my deposit because of some blood on the towels! If you're on your period, don't take a shower cause you'll pay for staining their towels. Humiliating, sexist, and highly embarrassing!!!! Shame on you!!

Not opulent but it has what you need for a room where you don't intend to spend much time. Comfortable bed. Got great night's sleep. Fantastic walk in shower.

I'm so glad to hear that we could give you a convenient, comfortable room to stay during your trip. If there's one thing we want, it's for you to have a good night's sleep in our little home away from home. I hope this means you'll be back again someday on your next visit. Best, Manny A.

The bathroom is updated and modern, the bed was really comfortable, the furniture was new and very usable, and the room was clean. The wifi is free and works fine.
