The room I stayed in looked remodeled, clean and attractive bathroom, clean and comfortable bed, etc. The area surrounding the hotel was not the greatest, but there was fencing around most of the property for security. The linen and towels were clean. The ironing board and iron worked well. The room was quiet, which worked well for me because I... More

I highly recommend the La Quinta Inn - Berkeley...The staff is great and they always go above and beyond for customers. Rooms are clean, comfy, and restrooms have been remodeled. They offer an awesome breakfast selection for guest.

Stayed in this hotel for 10 days as it's near UC Berkeley with the most competitive pricing for 2 queen beds in a room. Although rates are slightly lower, one must be mentally prepared to face a rundown hotel. The air con in the room is super noisy as it's old, and also leaks water onto the carpet. Also, as... More

Housekeeping staff need to be reminded they are not to continually knock on the door starting at 10:30 am on the day of check out when there is a "DO Not Disturb" sign displayed. They also need to be told to never enter a room with master key when sign is displayed before check out time at 12:00 pm

We would stay here again. The location was great, easy to get to off the freeway. The price was right. The rooms and the whole property were clean and well kept. Breakfast was good too. We had a minor issue with the toilet not flushing but it was taken care of. Would recommend.

This is a fine hotel for the price. We stayed because there was a wedding nearby. Every room has a small balcony, which is nice. We had a problem with the bathroom light though, it would not stay off all night. All night long it would turn back on, and the toilet did not flush well. I wouldn't stay there... More

Apparently rooms were recently renovated. Comfortable beds, pleasant staff. Good restaurants within walking distance. Ample parking. Had an old feel to it. I was there for a business event for 3 days. Free hot breakfast every morning was okay.

We visited our daughter at Berkeley and spent 5 days, 4 nights at this hotel. Unfortunately, we had higher expectations because of previous Laquita stays, which were nice. Our first night was in a room with a lumpy floor, lumpy bed, burn marks of an iron on the floor, torn rug, and a strong, pungent smell. The toilet was also... More

Our visit was short but nice. We had a quick overnight with our 5 year-old granddaughter. She was excited by everything. We found the hotel staff pleasant and courteous and our 2-queen bedroom comfortable. We were afraid the rooms would be outdated as the hotel looks a little worn from the outside but that was not the case. We had... More
