If you were expecting any other than a Knights Inn you are going to be disappointed. The rooms are outdated and bit unclean. The service is clumsy and weirdly inefficient. The location is fairly decent being just 15 minute walk to downtown Berkeley. The have parking on the property which is convenient. All in all there a far better places... More

The hotel is very well located with a bus stop just outside. It was also quite clean and the staff was accomodating. However, the breakfast though advertised, is a non-starter. Stays quite packed, though.

The hotel is ok for the price, but it is not what they advertise. The room didn't have the queen california bed they said. The rooms don't have closet. Nice tv. We had a problem with the staff at the lobby, we needed to cancel a few nights and the woman said that it was imposible to do it. So... More

The staff helped planned my day and things to do in Berkeley. I would definitely stay here again. I found the lowest rates on their site so I recommend booking through... More

Stayed there for two days. The receptionists were really nice, the room was clean and the bed really comfortable. I would totally recommend this hotel if you are planning on staying close to the university without paying much.

At the moment I booked the Knights Inn was the only location below the 300$/night limit. It is a little distant from downtown San Francisco but when you are not afraid of walking you just take the BART after a 10 minutes walk and without traffic jams you will join the main places within 30-60 minutes, depending on where you...

Within this price range, this is one of the most pleasant stays I've had. From tthe outside with the unexpected landscaping to the fresh, clean grounds you have a very cozy feeling. Inside the rooms are large, clean and very attractive. Amenties are up-to-date including the large screen TV, upgrade refrig and micro, nice hair dryer and good quality personal... More

I'd never ever go back to this place ever! Worse customer service I've ever experienced and the rooms smelled very bad The furniture is scratched up like it's from a junk yard! Very rude front desk person and the deposit is $150.00 to hold on your credit card for 3 days minimum.

Inexpensive - compared to rivals (60$ difference in price for similar quality). Reasonable sized room, very clean, excellent shower and standard facilities. About 20 minutes distance from San Francisco downtown. Went for a walk about in the early evening - to be recommended very beautiful at the waters edge
