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

Pros: Friendly staff, comfy bed, clean room, nice neighborhood, free parking, easy access to interstate. Cons: Dated interior, Currently undergoing renovations- which started at 8am my first morning there, musty smelling hallways, strange assortment for breakfast.

Always be forthright and honest. The day of my visit at La Quinta Berkeley (Berkeley, California where I was born and raised, the place I call home and feel free to do and say ANYTHING. I love my town, B-Town 7Th and Bancroft.) I called ahead of time to get pricing and availability. The staff member told me there was... More

Was here with six of my colleagues for four nights. This hotel definetely needs an upgrade. The bathroom is horrible, with broken tiles, fan that makes a lot of noise, and constant smell of urine. The carpet in the room is dirty, and a lot of noise coming from the outside if you live on the first floor. My colleague... More

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
