“Comfortable motel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

This motel turned out to be almost what I expected; small room, typical motel furnishings. The big surprise was that the bed was amazingly comfortable as were the pillows. And the shower was brand new, spacious and also great! Way more than your money's worth!

We came to Berkeley to visit our son that is a student at UC Berkely. This motel was a good place to stay. It was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. Good HIFI. Close to UC Berkeley and BART. The room had aircondition and a safe. Very good coffee in the breakfastroom. If we ever come back to Berkeley again, we will definately stay here again.

Thank you for your great feedback. We are truly happy to have given you great service and our Super 8 staff is very friendly and welcoming. Our housekeeping does an excellent job on keeping our rooms clean and fresh. When our SUper 8 customers walk into our rooms we want them to feel like home away from home. We are firm pillows and great heavenly pillow top mattress. Plesae come and enjoy the magic at Super 8.

We stayed there for 2 nights. The check-in area is so small that can only fit 1 or the most 2 persons. The price is more expensive than a 3 stars hotel in downtown Oakland but this was the Berkeley homecoming weekend so no complaint. The room and bathroom was clean but the bathroom door couldn't close. The refrigerator need to be cleaned and the air-conditioning is noisy. The complimentary breakfast has white and wheat bread, waffle, only and the area is so small. Transportation is good. We took the AC transit across the street to go to Berkerly and returned. BART station is a few minutes walk.

This place is not cheap for a motel but the location is great. It's only a short drive to all the places i love in town. The ghetto gourmet Shattuck Ave was only a few minutes drive. Acme Bread was about five minutes away. The gallery row at 4th street is less than ten minutes. The room is basic and clean.
