friendly staff, decent breakfast, rooms were clean and had a delightful experience. The reason I picked this location...it was in close proximity to a BART station that we used to get into San Francisco and then use a 3 day pass on the trains and trolleys - best way to get around

I traveled here for business. Not my usual hotel chain. If you know this area of Berkeley, you know exactly what type of hotel this is. The interior was pretty tired. The front desk staff was super nice. I checked in at 10pm, but the person at the front was nice, friendly and competent. Room was clean smelling. The bathroom...

Easily the worst property experienced on a recent 32-day road trip, and the worst of 3 La Quinta's visited.. The location was excellent, right off the highway, close to the University and on the main drag, but the hotel was a page out of a history book - electrical wiring on the outside of walls, tiny, tiny elevator (1 elevator...

You pay for what you get, and this hotel has a low price. However, although it is not new or recently renovated, the bathroom was clean, the TV and wifi worked fine, the room had a microwave and refrigerator, the beds were nice and the cleaning staff were professional. The breakfast was quite good, including cooked eggs, yogurts, breads, waffle...

If you don't mind getting woken up by 6am with slamming doors then this would be the place for you otherwise stay away. The bathrooms are so outdated and weren't even clean. the only nice feature were the beds which were comfortable -

The hotel and the room were good, but the guys working there didnt know how to behave with customers. One for all, our room wasnt done, all the sheets and towels were gone and, as I went to ask them to clean it, the girl gave me the beddings and told me to do the room myself since she "wasnt...

For the price this is a good hotel to stay in when visiting Berkeley. There were questionable stains on the walls, one that looked like dried mucus on and a big rip in the carpet, that someone could easily have tripped on. otherwise the sheets and bathroom were clean and the breakfast is good.

We arrived to Berkeley La Quinta hoping it will be another good experience. As I was checking in the front clerk asked what type of dogs we have and I told him the breed of dogs we have and he said "you'll be fine". He said that there are some breed of dogs that are not allowed to stay here....
