This is the first negative review that I have ever written. We arrived around 4:00pm and checked in and dropped off our bags. Upon entering our room we noticed a strong cleaning chemical smell but thought that the room would air out. After going to dinner and arriving back at the room we settled in but the strong smell had... More

Dear rinconmpg, We are so very sorry to hear that the smell of our cleaners was too strong in your room. We strive for a clean and tidy property and it appears we may have gone a bit overboard on your room. We appreciate your feedback and will use it to improve our services in the future. More

We have visited San Francisco multiple times to see my son so this time I tried to find a reasonable price for a hotel across the bridge. I was usually going south of SFO airport. The reason I chose this location was it was near where I had worked during my last year as a student at Cal. I was... More

I was here to visit son at Berkeley campus. I wanted a moderately priced hotel. It was completely remodeled so better than all the 2 stars surrounding it. The problem was that the furniture wasn't replaced so old beds, dressers, very worn, holes in them etc On the plus side bathrooms were brand new. Breakfast was typical of 2 star... More

I really like this motel, and I have reviewed it very favorably in the past. So I was very disappointed with the cancelation policy I encountered when my plans changed on this visit to Berkeley. I phoned to change my dates at 4:10 pm the day before my reserved first night, only to be told that I would be charged... More

Pleasantly surprised by the Rodeway Inn! My wife and I were only passing through Berkeley and didn't want to spend too much on a room for just a single night. Fortunately, we found the Rodeway Inn. The location is quite central, many local restaurants and markets are within a short walk and the price was right. The staff was courteous... More

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
