4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for two nights while visiting relatives in the area. This meant we wanted a property that was close to I-80 and also convenient for access to major city streets in Berkeley and Oakland. Price was also an object. Everything worked well, the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. Parking was convenient. Watch your step when you leave... More

Spent two nights with my wife and family. Found the hotel clean, staff very accommodating, decent continental breakfast, and overall not bad for the price. Already recommended to another family member and would stay again.

Headed to Berkeley for the Cal-Texas game. No availability at other hotels so ended up booking the Rodeway Inn on University. Now, this is not the Four Seasons by any means, but we were pleasantly surprised with the clean rooms, great location and noise-free environment. Updated bathrooms plus fridge and micro in the vanity area. Easy, safe walking to restaurants,... More

Went to Berkeley for the Cal-Texas game. Since most everything was sold out I ended up booking at the Rodeway Inn on University Avenue. Now this is not the Four Seasons by any means, but it was decent and inexpensive. The rooms are small but clean. The hotel is one level built around a courtyard with free parking. Exceptionally quiet... More

This hotel is smack dab in the middle of Berkeley's University ave. You turn into the parking lot from this main street and immediately you are in an old quiet sanctuary from Berkeley's past. No street noise or daily life penetrates that entrance. The hotel is set around a parking lot which is in turn set around a quaint water... More

I have stayed here on business for years now. It is right on University Ave. within walking distance to UC Berkeley and Shattuck area. Great location for shops and eating. The hotel is a courtyard style and you park right by your room. Very convenient. Rooms are safe and clean and the staff are great and always helpful and friendly.... More

We opened the door to our room last week and were knocked over by the smell, like dirty socks and pee and old dirt. We were so bummed, but we had family coming in so we were stuck. we never took our shoes off and refused to shower here too. It may be $100 cheaper than the Holiday Inn Express... More
