Knights Inn is an old style motor inn that has been completely overhauled and updated. I stayed for 2 nights while visiting the UC campus and found the location great, and room to be comfortable and fine for a short stay. The breakfast is just coffee and cereal and pastry that you collect from the small lobby. Price was reasonable.

My friend and I stayed at the Knight's Inn for one night before flying out of Oakland Airport the next morning. I have stayed at budget places around the world and I have to say that Knight's Inn is one of the best I have ever visited. There was ample parking on attractive grounds and the room was flawless...microwave, fridge,... More

Berkeley as a city has a serious "improvement opportunity" with its accommodation situation -- it is really difficult to find a good place to stay at a reasonable price. So my four-star rating is for a motel in Berkeley as opposed to a motel in the wider world. The Knights Inn was clean and comfortable with decent tv selection and... More

We stayed at the Knights Inn in Berkley. It was very nice and the desk clerk was wonderful. Sleeping was very comfortable and rooms were very clean . I would recommend this hotel. We walked everywhere we went very quaint little place. Coffeemaker in room, fridge and microwave. Nice TV and WiFi.

Although part of the Wyndham Group it is operated in a franchise system by an Indian Company. Checkin took long, no information about the hotel provided. Had to find out by myself about breakfast ( very poor no seating, you have to ring the bell to get coffee and cereals, no trays their to bring the items to your room)... More

I walked into this motel and asked for a room for a week. I am in Berkeley on business and needed to secure a place. I agreed on a room and a rate with the receptionist. He told me that it would be a few hours until the room was ready. I tried to hold the room with my credit... More

I stayed at the Knights Inn for 9 nights as I was visiting my brother in Berkeley. The room was absolutely spotless - all newly refurbished and really lovely. All the rooms I saw inside were of the same high standard. I was in a twin room in the far left corner - very spacious with two double beds. The... More

Check out time at 11am was horrible. At noon, for the price would have been most reasonable. It was a little, tiny bit stinky. It should have cost much less. I felt taken advantaged of, especially for the check-out time and money we paid.

Went to a college tour of UC Berkeley. We had a very comfortable stay at this well maintained motel w/ample parking. The bus stop is steps away and the staff was knowledgeable about routes (parking is near non-existent in Berkeley). Didn't take advantage of breakfast. Staff was very nice. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Would stay here again!
