The location is terrible, area is bad. The carpet in room was filthy, the pillows were yellow and smelled. My daughter was playing with her toys and dropped a toy behind the bed, my husband was getting the toy and found 6 white small pills behind the bed :( thank God my daughter did not get the pills. I would... More

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!

All of the other hotels in Berkeley were full, so we stayed at the Knights Inn. It was a little outdated , as are most of the Knights Inns, but it was the cleanest hotel that we stayed at this entire trip. ( we stayed at 5 different hotels on this north to south Ca. drive - 3 Holiday Inns... More

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 The rooms are outdated and bit unclean.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 Knights Inn Berkeley is located in a perfect location on University Ave. The hotel itself is really clean and well maintained. Parking is free which is a plus. 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...
