The La Quinta is clean, good , comfortable beds, free parking, and located close to Cal. Wifi works well, and the breakfast is adequate. The neighborhood can be a bit dicey. The staff was attentive and eager to please. When I mentioned a problem with hot water in the shower, they immediately sent help to fix it, and discounted the... More

My girlfriend and I went to Berkeley for a wedding. Unbeknownst to us, the wedding occurred on the same day as UC Berkeley's graduation. As a result, many of the local hotels were sold out; those that had available rooms (like La Quinta) were priced much higher than usual - nearly $600 for two nights. The staff was very friendly...

You will find guests ranging from homeless people to wealthy visitors. The beds are comfy. Most rooms remodeled. Great location accessible to public transportation around Berkeley. Do not use their "in room delivery" food service. $30 for a burger, drink and a tiny piece of cake. Wrap n 'Roll is right across the street. Best thing about hotel - very... More

Overall for the cost of the hotel it is best buy in this area. The room WIFI internet works and works flawlessly and fast. Free daily parking in the bay area is rare so this is one of the reason for me to stay with this hotel. Free breakfast is another feature and its location is convenient for walking distance... More

This is not a bad hotel. The parking is tight and gated in the front (the gates are broken). The back lot is gated on I've side not the other. The inside is older but pretty nice and kept clean and the staff was very nice. The neighbor hood is quite diverse, from college kids to professors to the homeless... More

Pros: Friendly staff, comfy bed, clean room, nice neighborhood, free parking, easy access to interstate. Cons: Dated interior, Currently undergoing renovations- which started at 8am my first morning there, musty smelling hallways, strange assortment for breakfast.

Always be forthright and honest. The day of my visit at La Quinta Berkeley (Berkeley, California where I was born and raised, the place I call home and feel free to do and say ANYTHING. I love my town, B-Town 7Th and Bancroft.) I called ahead of time to get pricing and availability. The staff member told me there was... More

Was here with six of my colleagues for four nights. This hotel definetely needs an upgrade. The bathroom is horrible, with broken tiles, fan that makes a lot of noise, and constant smell of urine. The carpet in the room is dirty, and a lot of noise coming from the outside if you live on the first floor. My colleague... More

We stayed here this past Friday night to attend Cal Day at UC Berkeley on Saturday. The location was great (although not walking distance for us) and the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a little glitch at check-in and the staff person there was extremely professional. I wish I remembered her name; she was working... More
