Convenient to UC Berkeley. Area a bit shady. Not very well insulated. Rooms close to road loud. Could hear traffic easily. Room good, clean. Bathroom not so well cleaned. Free wifi. Breakfast very frugal. Cereal, coffee, pastries. Front desk very nice.

We chose this motel for price and location. Also it has parking which is important in Berkeley. It is a few blocks walk to Shadduck. There are some restaurants close by. In fact there is a Thai restarant sharing a wall with the rooms up front and cooking odors can be powerfull (although I didn't notice them inside the room).... More

Me and a friend were sleepy on the road home from San Francisco and made last minute reservations here. I asked if the card that holds the room would be charged? I would rather pay cash. Sagari, the clerk assured me that the card would not be touched. Awesome. Got in, paid cash, went to dinner and found that the... More

Very Clean and newly remodeled. Exterior and interior exceeded my expectations. I found that this hotel was in a very satisfactory area of Berkeley and close to the BART station. The front staff was very helpful and the two bedded room was very satisfactory for our needs. Good restaurants and coffee shop was close by. I will stay again. Best... More

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
