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.

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... More

Looking for somewhere close to Oakland, but avoiding downtown prices driven up by a convention I found the Quality Inn in Berkeley. This is fairly standard Motel fare. The room was fairly small, occupied mostly by the king size bed. But otherwise comfortable. With a slight 'Motel Room Oder', but not overpowering. Small desk and reliable wifi provided a good...

We spent the day in San Francisco. While we were trying to get out of the city the traffic was horrible so we decided to grab a room. Found this place on a website and the reviews were favorable so we booked. The favorable reviews were spot on. The room was clean and comfortable. A little small, but very nice.... More

This hotel was not in great condition. The guy at check in was nice enough, but the hotel lacked in comfort. The hotel chain must have a minimum requirement for furniture irregardless of room size. It had all the required items, but they were stacked on top of each other and there was barely room to move around in. See... More

After spending the entire day on the road from Orange County to rescue my daughter and her stranded car to get her to Berkley I was pleasantly surprised by this small motel. Pleasant staff, smallish but nice clean quiet room, and free breakfast. At a very reasonable price. Would not hesitate to stay again.

A super Inn with a great breakfast bar. The room was well appointed , the bathroom granite counter top, daily USA Today, and friendly check in staff. The beds were firm and plush, with plenty of pillows. In room refrigerator too. Plenty of hangers and an iron.

We stayed here because the Choice Hotels promised a fitness center. According to the desk clerk they don't have one now and haven't ever had one as far as she knows. Then we went to the room and found what is one of the smallest rooms for 2 that I have ever seen. No place to put 3 suitcases and... More
