We stayed three nights at the Downtown Berkeley Inn. It's a couple of blocks from UC campus, and a block off Shattuck, a main drag with lots of restaurants and the Berkeley Downtown BART (subway). Very clean, modern, only 27 rooms, quiet and comfortable. There is no lobby, but there is parking in the courtyard - free when a space is available - there aren't many but I always saw an empty space or two. There also seems to be lots of space, with meters I think, on the street right in front.
