We've stayed in a couple of places in Berkeley and found them to be spendy. This trip we decided to try a hotel that was less expensive and we were not disappointed. When you walk into the room at this Rodeway Inn, which is off an old-fashioned motor courtyard, you may be a bit uncomfortable because it is reminiscent of... More

In general, the hotels of the calibre of the Rodeway Inn are not particularly memorable, unless something goes horribly wrong. In my case, everything met expectations and I can hardly remember the trip at all. From other reviews, I worried that the hotel might be dingy, but I found it to be clean, the staff very helpful, and the location... More

The Rodeway is a very basic motel, but also nice for the price. Service was fast and friendly, the room was clean and decent sized. The continental breakfast offers fruit, cereal, and danish along with coffee and juice. The location is great, it's right off a large street with plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby, plus it's only a few... More

Wasn't expecting a palace based on previous reviews. Did a decent enough job for somewhere reasonably priced where you can travel into San Francisco. Closeish to the freeway. 5 mins walk to BART stop and 20 or so minutes into SF. Free parking. Decent Mexican restaurant over the road and 7/11 a couple of minutes walk away. Room itself was... More

I happened to be in town during a very busy weekend and was thankful to find a room that was reasonably priced. That being said when I checked in my first room smelled like smoke and asked to be moved to another room. There was one room left and was moved to that one. While the room was not particularly...

Quiet room, nice landscaping, convenient free parking, super clean, redone granite bathroom, microwave and fridge. Tiny room, comfy bed. I would like a second bedside table, brighter light over suitcase and room darkening curtains. Would definitely recommend this cute little motel

I have stayed at various hotels in this area when doing business in San Francisco, and this has been one of the best! Checking in was quick and friendly. The lobby was comfortable, clean and inviting. Housekeeping did an awesome job of refreshing my room daily. It was always sparkly clean, and well replenished. The bed was very comfortable, and...

Our room was musty and it triggered my asthma. I am a mild asthmatic so a place has to be pretty musty to make it act up. The room was clean but it obviously has not been updated in sometime. The location is great. And the price for Berkeley was quite good. Breakfast is so minimal that you Can ignore... More

If you're a parent or visiting professor coming to Berkeley, your options can be limited. High end boutique hotels close in to Campus (but really pricey due to such a limited market), or seemingly sketchy "motels" in the less glam part of Berkeley. A few trips ago, I was faced with such a conundrum. I had a limited budget, and... More

This was my second time staying at the rodeway inn in berkley and I definitely recommend it. Staff are very friendly, the rooms were clean and not too out dated. We parked our small RV right out front safely in site. Continental breakfast was also way more than I expected. Thanks so much! See ya next time!
