I have visited this hotel in that past and I am happy to say I am much more pleased this time around. Many improvements have been made to the rooms with respect to the cleanliness. It is also very convenient when visiting my daughter as it is not far from UC Berkeley. Although the surroundings are not much to look... More

This hotel is reasonably priced and very convenient for our needs. It is a very old building so they are limited in how much they can upgrade the facilities but I think that given their limitations they are doing about the best they can. The linens are fresh, the towels are "thirsty" and the breakfast is better than adequate but... More

The staff here are really lovely. They are. They're helpful and efficient and a pleasure to talk to. But the surroundings and atmosphere of the hotel, and the rooms themselves - not so good. All through the night, sometimes until 4am, trucks would rock up in the carpark below us and their occupants would come up to our floor and... More

They say you get what you pay for. At this La Quinta you get a great deal: excellent beds, free internet and breakfast, convenient location, and extremely nice people. Staff encourages customer feedback and acts on issues of concern immediately.

We went to visit our son in graduate school at Cal just before Thanksgiving. The hotel location was great - close to the University and to major highways (but not right on it). Reviews we saw before going were less than glowing. Apparently La Quinta has recently done some upgrade work and the hotel was much better than previous reviews... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times. The hotel is a bit run-down, but my room, itself, was clean and comfortable. Usually, I have no problems with my room or the wi-fi but on this trip I was missing a desk chair (which was never replaced) and an ironing board (replaced by housekeeping). I was unable to get on...

Carpets were filthy, lights didn't work , noisy fan in bathroom, terrible TV picture quality. Felt more like a weekly motel with noisy neighbors in a noisy neiborhood. I would not recommend this location if you were expecting a high quality room typically found at an LQ. I was surprised this location is still in the franchise.

The building has a lot of miles on it, clean as could be expected for its age. Breakfast was OK. Price coincides with the overall value. Even as a stout man, I was on high alert walking in the area, the neighborhood did not feel real safe.

Rooms were old. Felt a bit dirty. Stayed here because all the other hotels in the area were booked. I would stay here again it this were the case but would not be my first choice. Checked in 30 mins early and the staff that checked us in was told not to let anyone check in early anymore! Supervisor is... More
