The room was a bit small and older. For ladies who use plug in hair products, there was not much room around the sink to set things on. (Vanity outside the bathroom.) The breakfast is pretty basic. The parking lot is small. The location is great for walking around the the area. I did not feel unsafe. There is a... More

We had a newly refurbished room, a quiet night's sleep, a very nice Buffett breakfast, and a friendly staff. And free parking. We'd not hesitate to return. And, considering the location, the price was very affordable. The pool area also looked clean,and had umbrella - covered tables, but we only saw it from afar.

The room is this motel is very small, with hardly walking space between bed, TV tables and dressing table. Pros is that it has a dish cable box with a big HD TV. Cons are the limited car park lots, and very small breakfast room with only 4 small tables, and their rates are high too. Limited eateries around the... More

This is a motel - as typical as motels go - that's been repurposed into a hotel. Within brief driving distance to Berkeley College (we were there to visit the campus). Pros: On the outside - motel room, on the inside - stuffed with every amenity: comfortable beds, great-size TV, and just about every amenity you would find in a... More

I needed a reasonably priced hotel room for a week on University Avenue close to the MLK, Jr. Way cross street in Berkeley. My son was recovering from an auto accident and was just starting a summer fellowship at a non-profit organization in the area. Quality Inn University was just a block and a quarter down University Avenue from where... More

We are staying here now. We asked for a different room because the fridge was broke in the first room. I had to insist because instead of an apology, I got quibbling. This morning, we were woken by the maid knocking because there are no "Do Not Disturb" signs for the doors. Then we noticed that the floor in front... More
