Good location and value. Fitness center is small but clean. Free breakfast in the morning is a nice touch.

Stayed here overnight after a concert at The Greek. Was a very pleasant stay. It seemed like it was the only hotel that has been remodeled in the area. Plenty of parking, check in was quick and easy. I loved that they had air conditioning in the room. Looked at other hotels and this one was by far the nicest.... More

I like this hotel because they have free internet, are clean and convenient, good breakfast included, near the BART station for San Francisco. Very quiet, front desk open all hours and fine with late arrival. OUr group plans to stay there consistently for our board meetings. Stephen D. Miller MD Treasurer Seva Foundation Berkeley

I was in Berkeley recently for business and it served as a perfect "home base" for me. The facility is clean, the breakfasts were really good (I like the pancake machine...how do I get one of those for my house??), and even though I had a ground floor room it was incredibly quiet! The staff was accommodating and friendly. I... More

I've been staying there every six months for several years, as I have a board meeting nearby. They are continually improving and upgrading it. Large, clean, well appointed rooms. The staff are all helpful and knowledgable. Liked the small but well equipped fitness room. Unusually good wifi connection - I've lately been frustrated even in high end hotels. And there's... More

This is an excellent, reasonably-priced property, tucked away in the middle of a congested, somewhat rundown area by the bustling University & San Pablo intersection – not unsafe, you just need to be aware of your surroundings. In fact, you hardly notice where it is located, with a single drive access onto University Ave., , but the property has its... More

Arrived for a two night stay and at check-in changed to a one night stay. The front desk did this quickly and without any comment. We got a 2 Queen Suite which just means you get a sink, micro, fridge, and sleeper sofa in addition to the 2 queens. This made the room larger and the bathroom was good sized... More

We stayed here on 'points' earned through other stays. THe hotel has been remodeled and is very tastefully decorated. The rooms were lovely and had comfortable beds and updated baths. Internet was free as well as parking. They also give a free self serve breakfast which offered a lot of choices. It is located in a very ethnic part of... More

I reserve this hotel twice a year for our 23-25 member Board of Directors when they come to Berkeley for their three day meeting. Vicky Chong and staff are outstanding in the service they provide. Our Board leaves happy and satisfied each visit. I will continue lodging our Board there twice yearly.
