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

I booked (using Wyndham service) a month in advance receiving confirmation number. Despite that my room was not available and I was forced to look for a different motel. I was there with 5 kids so you can imagine all the issues I had in doing that

My wife and I stayed here on a visit to my niece's graduation from Berkeley. Some family members stayed at a 5 star hotel in town, but we opted for a less expensive option. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of this motel. It had been newly renovated, and was super clean. The management is very friendly and helpful.... More

This is an inexpensive place that's nice to hole up for a week or so if you are visiting the University or just staying in town a little while. It's close to the North Berkeley BART station (about 3 blocks south) and less than a mile from the west edge of campus. There's a "microfridge" in each room for saving... More

I informed the manager in the office (male) when I checked in that I needed to be able to make a long distance call from my room. That evening the long distance on the phone was still not hooked up so I went to the motel office and I asked again to be able to make a long distance phone... More

First, they charged me $25 extra for my 15 years old child. They said to me, " this is America, only child under 12 is free." I asked to show me any written documents, they showed me a paper that wasn't in English. Second, the room is very small, I ordered 2 Queen size beds, but one was not a... More

This is an older motel in which the rooms have obviously been renovated very recently. My room was small, but tastefully decorated, comfortable and sparkling clean. There's plenty of parking and the location is perfect for visitors to both Berkeley and San Francisco. It's just a block and a half to BART and very accessible to Shattuck Ave. (downtown), Telegraph... More

I stayed here on my road trip. I thought the room was neat and clean. The free Wi-Fi was a bonus, worked perfectly!!! Staff were friendly too. I paid $95 and loved the room. I usually look at the room before i purchase and I did this with the other hotels on University Ave and this was the cleanest and... More

This is your basic independently owned motor court type property. The furniture is very basic, but in decent condition, and the lighting is good. The plumbing works, the shower stall is large and newish, the towels are plush. The windows open. The purple and green motif is more stylish than average. The wireless works well, the fellow behind the counter... More
