This is a fine hotel for the price. We stayed because there was a wedding nearby. Every room has a small balcony, which is nice. We had a problem with the bathroom light though, it would not stay off all night. All night long it would turn back on, and the toilet did not flush well. I wouldn't stay there...

Thank you for your recent review of our La Quinta Inn. On behalf of the property I want to apologize for the bathroom light and toilet issues you experienced while staying with us. Rest assured that we are currently taking steps to prevent such problems by completely remodeling all of our bathrooms which will include new tubs and shower stalls,...

Apparently rooms were recently renovated. Comfortable beds, pleasant staff. Good restaurants within walking distance. Ample parking. Had an old feel to it. I was there for a business event for 3 days. Free hot breakfast every morning was okay.

We visited our daughter at Berkeley and spent 5 days, 4 nights at this hotel. Unfortunately, we had higher expectations because of previous Laquita stays, which were nice. Our first night was in a room with a lumpy floor, lumpy bed, burn marks of an iron on the floor, torn rug, and a strong, pungent smell. The toilet was also...

Our visit was short but nice. We had a quick overnight with our 5 year-old granddaughter. She was excited by everything. We found the hotel staff pleasant and courteous and our 2-queen bedroom comfortable. We were afraid the rooms would be outdated as the hotel looks a little worn from the outside but that was not the case. We had...

I have stayed at the LaQuinta for 7 of the last 8 weeks helping with a family medical issue. The staff and service were excellent. the room was very comfortable and clean, but nothing fancy. The variable pricing (until we'd been there 30 days) was a bit strange but for the location was reasonable. Breakfast was hearty.

This motel is close to the interstate and a straight shot to the University of California campus (about two miles). Not much nearby in terms of restaurants; there are plenty about two miles away. They offer a mediocre self-serve breakfast. It is an older motel that is being renovated in place; i.e., some rooms are being renovated while other rooms...

I wanted to go to San Francisco for few days. But I wanted to be away from the city. So I picked la Quinta. They had a great staff and the morning breakfast they provided is was good. Also my refrigerators not my room went down, so I called and they fixed. I will come back again for sure.

This is my favorite place to stay in the east bay. GREAT location, great accommodations, helpful staff. The price is very competitive considering parking and a hot breakfast are included. And for those warm afternoons they have a pool!

The La Quinta is clean, good , comfortable beds, free parking, and located close to Cal. Wifi works well, and the breakfast is adequate. The neighborhood can be a bit dicey. The staff was attentive and eager to please. When I mentioned a problem with hot water in the shower, they immediately sent help to fix it, and discounted the...
