Yes, price seems to fluctuate but if you book in months in advance you can grab a great deal. Price was $140 a night, great location, close to the freeway and trader joes. Pro: Room was clean and the bathroom seemed updated. Room also included a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast is also... More

This hotel charges a different amount each day of your stay depending on their census. You get a very high rate if they fill up. Definitely not worth the price of admission. Breakfast is poorly done. Noisy - you can hear your neighbors clearly.

Management has built a cohesive and responsive team that will respond to any and all requests in a timely manner - frequently going WAY beyond quality service. Did not partake of morning food stuffs or coffee, so can't comment on that part of the business. Plans in the works to upgrade the washer and dryer (my only complaint).

Rooms are nice. I like the showers but mine had mildew forming in the space between the shower pan and the wall. First night there the hotel had booked a party in the banquet room and they had loud music that shook my room. Thankfully it was quiet by 10. Follow the direction of the posted signs in parking lot... More

The hotel was reasonably priced and a great place to stay. The staff was friendly and the place felt safe and comfortable. There was easy access from the freeway. The room was clean and well decorated. It was very relaxing after a difficult business day. It was an enjoyable place to stay.

The location here is convenient to the freeway, which makes nearby places like Oakland, Marin County, The City, etc., pretty convenient. The immediate neighborhood, though, feels a little seedy. Aside from a few gas stations, there's nothing too close. After having visited other La Quintas, I can say that the breakfast here is a plus. You get all the typical... More

La Quinta is always as expected - not flashy or pretentious; just a good room at a good price. Despite not being in a very nice part of Berkeley (and on a main road), it was a comfortable hotel and a good night's sleep. Overall -- solid and steady! Great, friendly staff.

Stayed here while visiting our son in Oakland. Hotel was pretty old with updated rooms. Check in and all interactions with the staff was very good. Room was nicer than expected with nice towels, good maid service, comfy bed. Some problems with other guests; someone left a dog in their room which barked for 45 min straight until I called...

Lovely hotel. We felt very comfortable there. Left the car parked and took the train to the city center.This option made it stress free as we did not have to think about expensive parking in town or where to park. Bought a day pass and that took us all around the city. Had a great stay.
