We have a two bed room,you can basically have only one person moving around the room. If you have two people try to move in the room,you will be guaranteed bump to...

My wife and I just stayed at this hotel to attend my son's graduation from UC Berkeley. He received his PhD so this was a very important trip for us. We were also in the bay area to spend time with our daughter and other son who live in Concord and San Francisco respectively. This was actually my second stay...

This Inn really has several problems. While they tried hard to make the rooms look clean and welcoming, they really aren't. First, the rooms are TINY. The pathway between the edge of the bed and the wall unit / dresser is so narrow we had to walk sideways (2 double beds with 4 people in the room). It was extremely...

I was traveling to Berkeley, and did not book a room in advance. I arrived late, they had just one room available here. Overall it is OK. Note that it's a It is a motel.

The heater did not work in my room. They gave me another room, it smelled of smoke even though this is a "no smoking" hotel. The sheets were dirty. the bedside light did not work. The breakfast room and tables were dirty, even though I was the first in there. This place is a disaster. Stay somewhere else!

We were visiting a relative during Thanksgiving week 2016. We landed at the Oakland airport and drove the rental car to this hotel. We stayed in room 111, which is one of the two first floor rooms visible in the picture. Check in: We were able to check in to a room early. Yay. We were the first new guests...

Room was nice, bed was huge, and I felt safe in the area. The parking onsite is a plus. Very close to everything in Berkeley, and the restaurant/bar right next door was great and convenient. Only downside - not much protection from outside noises. I never heard anything coming from the rooms on either side or below mine, but noises...

What a nice continental breakfast. Very nice. Nothing gourmet or ritzy. Just yummy! Coffee with varieties is always available. Front desk guys are always polite. Pillows could be bigger. Thanks again Quality Inn!

On the second night of my stay, right as I was about to go to bed, I discovered a bed bug crawling on my pillow. I went to tell the management, and they were not very helpful. They moved me to another room, but did not seem very concerned.

Bed is comfortable but not enough furniture. Bathroom is clean and shower works great. Vanity is small with tiny place to put your staff. Location is convenient. Breakfast is so-so. Both egg and sausage taste artificial. I skip breakfast the second day.
