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

If you don't mind getting woken up by 6am with slamming doors then this would be the place for you otherwise stay away. The bathrooms are so outdated and weren't even clean. the only nice feature were the beds which were comfortable -

The hotel and the room were good, but the guys working there didnt know how to behave with customers. One for all, our room wasnt done, all the sheets and towels were gone and, as I went to ask them to clean it, the girl gave me the beddings and told me to do the room myself since she "wasnt...

For the price this is a good hotel to stay in when visiting Berkeley. There were questionable stains on the walls, one that looked like dried mucus on and a big rip in the carpet, that someone could easily have tripped on. otherwise the sheets and bathroom were clean and the breakfast is good.

We arrived to Berkeley La Quinta hoping it will be another good experience. As I was checking in the front clerk asked what type of dogs we have and I told him the breed of dogs we have and he said "you'll be fine". He said that there are some breed of dogs that are not allowed to stay here.... More

Hotel is dated but staff are friendly and hotel is clean. Would stay again. Hotel needs to be updated with painting and elevator. Stayed on business close to business I needed to attend. Close to shops and food, able to walk there.

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
