We flew up for a quick 24 hour stay to catch the Cal vs Stanford game last weekend and last minute booked this hotel. Check-in was easy and the gentleman was friendly. We had booked a larger suite with the whirlpool tub (didn't use the tub but the bathroom was nice and large.) We weren't in the room for much... More

We stayed here in August for our daughter's move in to Cal. More than 2 weeks after we checked out, I realized that my phone was missing. It is the phone I use in my country and I did not use it while I am in the states so I did not know when it got lost. All the contacts... More

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.

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...
