Okay - this hotel is not in the center of town - it's about a mile from Shattuck - closer to San Pablo, but it is so worth it! It was very quiet and the rooms were exceptionally clean (and I am very picky). The rooms also have refrigerators and microwave ovens. The beds were super comfy. The free parking and WIFI also added to the value. You won't find free parking at the more expensive and fancier places. Plus if you really want to get to the campus or center of town, there is good public transportation nearby! We didn't eat the free breakfast - with so many nice coffee shops and breakfast joints in Berkeley, why do a free breakfast unless you are really on a budget.
