We traveled to San Francisco for the weekend for a family event and booked this motel based on price. The price was right and the experience turned out to be great. The motel is about a 20 minute drive into the city and was close to freeways to attend our family obligations. The motel is set back from the street... More

Quiet motel set back from a noisy street. Easy in and out, free parking. Location is good, campus is a 20 minute walk. Continental breakfast includes Starbucks coffee :^) and a nice selection of bread and pastry.

Comfortable, clean and most importantly away from street noise. The breakfast was minimal, the rooms are kind of small, but the Inn is right in the middle of Berkeley (two blocks from Trader Joe's and across the street from a great little Mexican restaurant) and it's good value for the price. The rooms and parking are set back from the... More

Hotel was ok, was in a convenient location. Service was ok. Checking in early required a extra charged so you would have to wait for 3:00 pm to avoid a extra charge. The clerk seem to be more focus on other things that guest in front of them. Location was close to a lot of things.

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
