I spent 6 nights in this hotel, it was nice stay. The location is 10 blocks from North Berkeley Station and there's also bus stop across the street. The staff, front office, and house keeping was helpful. It was standard accomodation but for me it's fair with the budget.

The property and the room were quiet and clean. Good showers and beds. Adequate parking with 2 breakfast places nearby. The problem was that it lacked of any character whatsoever. No paintings on the wall or anything decorative.There seemed to be a few seedy characters hanging around, too. We had to carry our bags up 3 flights of stairs. No... More

For the price, it was great. The room was clean, and cleaned daily; the location was fairly central to the Berkeley area; and the manager was very friendly. My only complaints were an extremely uncomfortable pillow, which seemed rather worn out; and the noise from surrounding rooms was at times excessive. Understanding this is really no fault of the hotel's,... More

The room was the cheapest in the area. This is not a luxury hotel. No room service, no business center. Free internet access, in room fridge, instant hot water from the sink and shower. The bathtub did not have a plug for the drain and the lever for it did not work so for my room a bath was not... More

I have spent some time looking for a non-expensive room with a private bathroom in a hotel from which I could get to San Francisco downtown in no more than 1 hour by means of public transportation. Can tell you with confidence that Berkeley Inn is the best option. It is in a walking distance (no more than 15 minutes)... More

Tiny room, relatively inexpensive, good location for business downtown/on campus. I was here for a conference at UCB so it was ideal. I had several friends visit me from SF over the weekend who walked to the hotel from a nearby train stop.

The rooms are simple and plain. But they have all the basics: fridge, microwave, HBO and wi fi. Free parking, and only a few blocks from North Berkeley BART. Plan to take a meal next door at Leila's cafe; and don't sit in the appealing window facing the street, but get a seat inside facing the private garden, while you... More

We got to the hotel after dark and it was hard to tell what kind of an area we were in. It looked a little sketchy. In the light of the day the neighborhood is ok. It's definitely mixed with a few boutique businesses and auto repair shops. There is a cute cafe two doors down that I wish the... More

Though the rooms are a little tight, they are clean and worthy of the low weekend rates. Parking is limited especially in the evenings but the Inn is only about 6 blocks from the North Berkeley BART station. The neighborhood is quiet and there are plenty of food options within a 2 block radius.
