After spending the entire day on the road from Orange County to rescue my daughter and her stranded car to get her to Berkley I was pleasantly surprised by this small motel. Pleasant staff, smallish but nice clean quiet room, and free breakfast. At a very reasonable price. Would not hesitate to stay again.

A super Inn with a great breakfast bar. The room was well appointed , the bathroom granite counter top, daily USA Today, and friendly check in staff. The beds were firm and plush, with plenty of pillows. In room refrigerator too. Plenty of hangers and an iron.

We stayed here because the Choice Hotels promised a fitness center. According to the desk clerk they don't have one now and haven't ever had one as far as she knows. Then we went to the room and found what is one of the smallest rooms for 2 that I have ever seen. No place to put 3 suitcases and... More

The room was a bit small and older. For ladies who use plug in hair products, there was not much room around the sink to set things on. (Vanity outside the bathroom.) The breakfast is pretty basic. The parking lot is small. The location is great for walking around the the area. I did not feel unsafe. There is a... More

We had a newly refurbished room, a quiet night's sleep, a very nice Buffett breakfast, and a friendly staff. And free parking. We'd not hesitate to return. And, considering the location, the price was very affordable. The pool area also looked clean,and had umbrella - covered tables, but we only saw it from afar.

The room is this motel is very small, with hardly walking space between bed, TV tables and dressing table. Pros is that it has a dish cable box with a big HD TV. Cons are the limited car park lots, and very small breakfast room with only 4 small tables, and their rates are high too. Limited eateries around the... More

This is a motel - as typical as motels go - that's been repurposed into a hotel. Within brief driving distance to Berkeley College (we were there to visit the campus). Pros: On the outside - motel room, on the inside - stuffed with every amenity: comfortable beds, great-size TV, and just about every amenity you would find in a... More
