I was contemplating staying at the Doubletree or Holiday Inn Express. Ultimately, I decided to pay a lower rate and stay a little farther away from Berkeley. If you're driving to this location at night - the neighborhood seems questionable and shady, but when I pulled in the parking lot I did feel like I was tucked in a just a little bit and protected. Upon check-in, my confirmed room was not available, so I was put in a room w/ 2 dbl beds. Not a big deal, but when availability shows a king room available and you confirm that room...when you check-in it be the room you confirmed. The hotel seems new - rooms are clean and updated. Because the location gave me the creeps and the snafu at check-in - I wish I would have paid the extra $50 and stayed at the Doubletree.
