I recently had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful hotel in Berkeley. The front desk staff was exceptional, and the housekeeping service, particularly Rosa, was outstanding. The hotel's location near the university and many excellent restaurants made my stay even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.

Hotel's Favorite
Small motel in downtown Berkeley, worked great for quick college tour. Room was clean and tidy and had an upgraded, tile and glass shower. Plenty of towels. It was just my son & I and we had a 2 bedroom on the 2nd floor. Note that for a family of 4, it might feel pretty tight for space -- not a lot of room to walk, between the bed and door, or other bed and the closet. However, for the 2 of us, it was just right. It's an urban area w/ traffic, but in general we weren't bothered by outside or road noises. Appreciated the bathroom having a small window that opened! Didn't hear any noises from neighboring rooms, which is always a plus. In the early evening we walked over to the Trader Joe's for snacks, which is basically across the street. Felt safe and wish we had more time to explore the area.

There was a poop stain on the bedsheets and I did not notice it until the morning after. I checked for bedbugs like I normally do at any place I stay but I did not check the sheets. I didn’t notice it until the next morning as the comforter was no longer on top of the stain

Staff is not educated in Wyndham policies. Was given a bunch of BS on early check-in. Hardly any cars located in the parking lot. Was told rooms were not ready and would have to charge for early check-in etc....

Seattle, Washington1 contribution
As soon as I checked in, I detected a very bad odor and was worried that it would trigger my asthma. The day clerk brought in an air purifier. Between that and leaving the back window open, I hoped that the toxic odor would dissipate. I left to visit my daughter who goes to school in Berkeley. When I returned I noticed the odor was still there. I was worried but tried to sleep. However, I woke up wheezing and gasping for air. I had an asthma attack and I knew I couldn’t stay there. I went to tell the night manager about the problem and instead of trying to help me, he got angry for waking him up. I was able to learn that the smell was in all the rooms and that it was caused by chemicals used for mold mitigation or prevention. I knew I had to leave and find another hotel even though it was the middle of the night, and I asked to be reimbursed for my half-night there since I was not responsible for the toxic odors that were harmful to my health. The night manager refused and said it was too late for me to be reimbursed. It was the worst, most unethical and perhaps illegal, service I have ever had in a hotel. I eventually got another room in another hotel that night and was able to get some sleep. But the problems from the Travelodge lingered for several days. Don’t stay there!!!!

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, the staff was friendly and the location great. We stayed here for a concert at the Greek and could easily walk. There are also excellent food choices nearby and the farmers market on Saturday was nice.

The room was very clean, but you can hear people walking upstairs, the fridge kept loudly turning on and off, and 1 bed squeaked. The guy at the front desk was lovely, and the location is great. But the exterior needs some attention, and they should pick up the trash in the parking lot
