We booked this hotel last minute and based on driving on adjacent streets we started to get concerned. When we arrive the courtyard was spotless, the reception area is dated but welcoming and the desk personnel very professional and helpful. We booked 3 rooms at one time and everything was perfect. Rooms were spotless, shower was great and very good... More

Stayed a week in this hotel. The staff was friendly, can't complaint on this side. Location also very good in University Avenue, close to everything. 10 minutes walk to Berkeley campus. Some nice restaurants around. The bathroom was super clean. The outside parking/garden is very well maintained. I felt secure there. BART is like 3 blocks away, so easy access... More

It's a nice hotel. Near the Bart station, that takes you to the airport and you can get to San Francisco City in less than half an hour. It's clean. It's quiet. The staff is really helpful, we had a problem with the card and the reservation and they helped us kindly.

I booked this last minute with a AAA discount, and showed up 30 minutes later. I was warmly welcomed by the man working the front desk, and was able to park right by my room. The room is small- but was very clean, nice tv, easy wireless access. My only suggestion is that a luggage rack for my suitcase would... More

I wasn't expecting much, but the room was simple but clean. I had a quite night. Bart Station and many restaurants were nearby. I would have given a 4th star had their wifi been better. I discovered that in the evening, when most people are connected, the downloading slows down quite a bit. Perfect speed in the morning. The breakfast... More

Great location, 0.3 miles from the North Berkeley BART station. Clean, well-maintained room. Accessible rooms very well done. Staff are helpful. Complimentary breakfast not exactly to my taste, but Coffeebar is right next door. If you are looking for a simple place to sleep that is convenient, quiet and clean, this would be a very good choice

Remodeled in 2007, this is a decent hotel with a reasonable price if booked in advance. The room was clean and well maintained. The horseshoe layout with the parking in the middle however makes it a bit noisy, especially when rude people show up after ten, lock their doors with the remote and don't have the consideration or knowledge to...

If you are looking for a great reasonably priced, clean hotel within minutes of Berkeley University the Rodeway inn is absolutely the best value. Highly recommended. Friendly staff, nice clean bathroom. We would stay here again without hesitation.
