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.

This hotel is located south of UC Berkeley along University Avenue. We have stayed here several times when doing business around Oakland and surrounds. The hotel is clean, it has great parking and a very sufficient breakfast. The Staff is attentive. Our room was adequately sized and had a couch. The rooms are not overly fancy, but very. Sufficient given... More

We travelled through California and stayed one night there with my husband and 2 year old. We rented a suite.The rooms were clean, comfortable, and well equiped. The location is very central and safe, and close to BART (walking distance), which made it very convinient for us. All in all, this hotel is everything we were expecting from a Holiday... More

I had to take some time to decide what rating to give this hotel, and here is why... GOOD: The hotel and the rooms is very clean, it looks like many of the features are newly installed. The staff is helpful and amiable. Especially the day front desk manager who is a very nice lady and takes the time to... More

This HI Express is pretty much the usual deal. I went with my daughter for the CALSO event at Cal, so I booked an "apartment" room so each of us had our own space. The room was unexpectedly large, with a full kitchen with all appliances, a sitting area which shared two queen beds plus a separate bedroom with another... More

For this hotel you better have a car, but if you're driving the location is great Pros + you pay less than in any hotel in SF, parking is for free and it's 15 min away from the city + it's in a really quite neighborhood, not like most hotels + very close to the University + they have a... More
