Rodeway Inn was not my first choice but is near to where I was visiting. However, the staff was very nice and the room had been recently remodeled. It is exceptionally clean. The parking lot is well organized. The Continental Breakfast included with the room is a nice amenity. Free WiFi is also great. Overall, I was very pleasantly surprised... More

One doesn't usually expect such a great combination of friendly service, clean and well maintained rooms and great price all in one package. I spend 50 - 60 nights per year in hotels of various price ranges and even the high end often does not live up to expectations. Rodeway Inn of Berkeley proves that a hotel can deliver a... More

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
