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

We will definitely stay there again. The staff was very courteous. The breakfast was delicious and well prepared. The accommodation's for the price were excellent. We were centrally located and it was easy to get every where we wanted to go.

Other than the pillows, which were smallish and uncomfortable, and SLOW elevator, a good stay. The location was quite convenient. It would help if there was a sign at the front, advising of availability of additional parking in the rear

The hotel is in a good location in Berkeley, just off the I-80 on University Ave. However, a small, slow elevator that barely holds three people ( and little luggage) . The bathrooms are small and the toilet in my room flushed slowly. Both the tap in the sink and shower required real twisting to open. Also, there was late... More

Clean rooms, hallways, grounds; friendly staff; close to everything I wanted to visit. Breakfast was normal hotel fare, but nicely presented and the breakfast room was kept clean. Lower University Ave. is dicey, but the hotel does it's best to shield clients. Good, fast WiFi connection

friendly staff, decent breakfast, rooms were clean and had a delightful experience. The reason I picked this location...it was in close proximity to a BART station that we used to get into San Francisco and then use a 3 day pass on the trains and trolleys - best way to get around

I traveled here for business. Not my usual hotel chain. If you know this area of Berkeley, you know exactly what type of hotel this is. The interior was pretty tired. The front desk staff was super nice. I checked in at 10pm, but the person at the front was nice, friendly and competent. Room was clean smelling. The bathroom... More

Easily the worst property experienced on a recent 32-day road trip, and the worst of 3 La Quinta's visited.. The location was excellent, right off the highway, close to the University and on the main drag, but the hotel was a page out of a history book - electrical wiring on the outside of walls, tiny, tiny elevator (1 elevator...

First will say would definitely stay here again!! I have to say I was REALLY surprised at the reviews on this property after staying here - will go over the pros and a few cons. Location - located on the busy "main drag" of Berkeley University Avenue. This gives easy access to UC as well as the freeway AND the... More
