This motel is close to the interstate and a straight shot to the University of California campus (about two miles). Not much nearby in terms of restaurants; there are plenty about two miles away. They offer a mediocre self-serve breakfast. It is an older motel that is being renovated in place; i.e., some rooms are being renovated while other rooms... More

Property runs a little pricy in the Bay Area ...that said there is a lot going for this little Berkeley hotel.....it's close to the freeway and the train station. Not too far from downtown...the city is pretty walkable....it's the older part of town but it looks up and coming...there's lots of shopping , eateries, bars,saki and beer tasting....and a fun...

I wanted to go to San Francisco for few days. But I wanted to be away from the city. So I picked la Quinta. They had a great staff and the morning breakfast they provided is was good. Also my refrigerators not my room went down, so I called and they fixed. I will come back again for sure.

This is my favorite place to stay in the east bay. GREAT location, great accommodations, helpful staff. The price is very competitive considering parking and a hot breakfast are included. And for those warm afternoons they have a pool!

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
