2 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

This hotel would be acceptable if the rate were close to $100. However, at close to $200 with taxes, it is unacceptable for a room to have an odor, for walls and furniture to be discolored, for moldings to be worn, for furnishings to be dated. The bathroom was clean, but when I had to lift the mattress to find... More

We chose to stay here mainly because of its price as it is much cheaper than most other hotels in the Bay Area. It turned out to be a great choice! The location is perfect as you're situated near a BART station and are also in walking distance of much of Berkeley. There are some great restaurants in the area... More

This is a motor court style play tucked away in a city environment. Room was very small but manageable. It would be better if bed were moved to side and a small night stand placed beside it to hold glasses and phone. Replace heavy bed spread with light weight easily washable one. Bath was remodeled. AC was noisy unusable and... More

Clean, comfortable and within walking distance of good restaurants and shops. Access by car to the rest of the area is rather easy. There are microwaves and refrigerators in each room, Wi-Fi, desk and wall plugins. Includes a light breakfast and coffee, coffeemakers and hairdryers in room. The rooms are smaller with double beds in some units. Still a bargain... More

For the money this is a great value in the pricy Berkeley. Nice courtyard with flowers all over. Nice clean room and bathroom but the carpet appeared to be old so the room smells. Sheets are cheap, but again, it's a Rodeway Inn. It's much better than a lot of other "budget" hotels.

Room smelled of chemicals. We had to air it out. The lights were shining in to the room even with the blinds drawn. No pool. Very noisy location. But the bed was comfortable and the room appeared clean.

The place was well maintained. It has free breakfast and the coffee was great. The place is along Univeristy Ave and hass access to lots of shops in the area. There are parking slots in the place. The staff were very accommodating. Keep it up!

The folks that run this place are friendly and kind. But the room smelled badly of feet. And I've developed insect bites and welts across my body, unlike anything I've seen before. I would never stay here again.

We stayed here for only one night, we arrived around 9 am and they made everything possible to give us a room in about 45 min for an extra charge of $10, considering I had only pay $100 for the room I didn't mind. Getting our room so early was really great since we were exhausted. People are very friendly,... More
