have stayed at many a holiday inn express and this building seems better constructed, which means quieter. Otherwise - typical - decent sized room, clean, comfortable bed, slow internet - what else is new... on our several stays here, the staff seems professional and courteous.

Good quality price ratio. Rooms are very good, spacious, comfortable. The breakfast buffet is not a luxury one but it is very well served with good choice of food and works in a practical and functional way.

Stayed here to go to Dave Mathews concert 8/24/14. Room was spacious and very clean. Close to Frwy. Was a 2 mile walk to the theater. Which was better than trying to find parking near the Greek. Really nice breakfast area and standard HI food. Staff was very friendly. Worked well for us. Will stay here again when we come... More

This was the normal setup for the Express line of Holiday Inn. I thought the staff was nice and I had no issues with the room or location. I do ask that they buy a new pancake maker... The poor guy there in the morning had to fight with it everyday, I was there, to get it working. The dining... More

the hotel is clean and tidy, up to the usual Holiday Inn standard with good breakfast and spacious rooms. The location is not that great. Far from campus, cafes and restaurant (although close to the freeway) Good enclosed parking.

There is nothing spectacular about this hotel, but it is more than adequate - includes breakfast and refrigerator in the room. It's a little pricey given that it seems mediocre, but it is one of the best in the area of the Berkeley campus (not a lot of great hotels in Berkeley because they know that parents don't have much...

Loved staying here. Parking was great because it is all enclosed. Gave us a secure feeling at night and for our car. We were looking for housing for my son for UC Berkeley. That in itself is quite a challenge. The hotel provided a great spot of reprieve from our house hunting.

I was looking for a more upscale hotel in Berkeley but everything was sold out, so I reluctantly booked this Holiday Inn. It was a nice surprise...not a lot of frills, but the room was very large, clean and comfortable. Convenient free parking was a plus. With tax, very expensive for this category of hotel (almost $500 for 2 nights),... More

We spent one night at this hotel whilst in town dropping our son off for a summer program at UC Berkeley. Based on the reviews I'd read here, I had a pretty good idea of what to expect, and wasn't surprised: an older hotel, reasonably clean and definitely in need of some updating. The rooms were smaller and less nicely... More
