It's conveniently located about 1/2 mile walk from the UC Berkeley campus and there are plenty of restaurants within a 1/4 mile and a Trader Joe's down the block.The decor was simple and clean. There was a nice size flat-screen TV with an on-screen program guide. The only downside was that the shower is extremely low-flow! I forgot my USB... More

The room, the staff, and the location were all excellent. The biggest issue was a major construction happening next door. They began at 7:30 am, which I believe is illegal. Otherwise, I'd come back any time I visit Berkeley.

Service is good. If you are visiting UC Berkeley for a day or two location is good. Amenities and room are very small. AC is loud. Overpriced !! Paid $350 with tax for one night stay Friday to Saturday. This is a motel not a hotel. Overall, average place.

My road trip to San Francisco was great. On our way to San Francisco to see AC/DC show at the AT&T Parks, we stayed overnight at three hotels, one each night, before this hotel which I stayed for two nights, and one hotel after left the Bay Area. This is the 2nd worse I ever stayed! The parking lot was... More

I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy. I reserved and paid for this room on travelodge website and when I got to the motel I was told by the front desk man that he wont give me the room. I showed him my confirmation number and still would not give me the room. He charged me for... More

This is a motel located on the edge of downtown Berkeley. Walk to BART and the rest of downtown is simple, and there are useful businesses (for example a Trader Joe's, and quite a few restaurants) very nearby. It's just a motel and relatively inexpensive, so expectations should be appropriate for that. Rooms are functional but simple, and minimal amenities... More
