Stayed at this hotel for one night, while visiting family. We had third floor rooms which were quiet. Convenient to the University and the freeway. Nice that they have pillows labeled soft/medium. Single elevator means a bit of waiting. Get a room near the end of the hall and take the stairs. There is a great Afghan restaurant right across... More

Was very happy for three nights at this location. It is within walking distance of the BART line making it convenient to visit San Francisco. We had a minor incident with the AC thermostat but the management corrected it immediately and in the morning replaced the control as an upgrade. Everyone working here is very helpful and friendly.

We've been staying at this hotel periodically for a couple of years while visiting our son. The location is good and the hotel rooms are always clean, reasonably quiet and in very nice condition. There are less expensive places to stay but they have not been as quiet as this place. My only complaint is the price has gone up... More

This seems like a little older hotel than most of the Holiday Inn Expresses. Just a little tired outside but not bad. It is near the university and in a marginal part of town. It is the newest and nicest building for blocks in any direction. Parking is ample and the lobby and breakfast room are neat and clean. We... More

We (3 adult family members) were in Berkeley to visit a family member nearby. This hotel was affordable, clean and staff was courteous. The location seemed good to get to places. There were a few places nearby that we went to - a 99 cent store for snacks, a hamburger take out place, and a pizza place. We had family... More

Had a nice 3-night stay. Room and bathroom were spacious, clean, well decorated and quiet. Our room was at the end of the corridor on the 2nd floor and we had problems with the Wifi (this wasn't the case for our friends who had a room that was in the middle of the long corridor). Free breakfast was good. Service... More

Stayed here for three nights. Four stars seems like a lot for being in a somewhat unappealing neighborhood but the hotel is exactly the same as the other HIE's I have stayed in - clean, helpful staff in a convenient, if not charming neighborhood. The is quite a lot of train noise.
