I went into the hotel without expecting anything. Here are the plus points. The hotel has been remodeled recently and the room looked very good inside (#212). The fixtures are great and the bed is very comfortable. Space is a little less. The bathroom was also new and had a standing shower, good water pressure and nice hot water. So...

This is a mixed review -- I give it an average rating because the place is very nice and has been remodeled. When I say nice, I mean that for budget accommodation it was remodeled, very clean and well kept. I made the reservation through the hotel chain website and has a total of $170.86 for two days but my...

While the hotel isn't too impressive on the outside, the location, free parking, and fantastically renovated rooms made this stay great.

The hotel's location is quite good. Close to Bart and shops in Berkeley. My room was surprisingly really nice and modern. This was not what I was expecting from looking at the hotel outside. The room was clean, modern and despite being by the road, very quiet. The problem with this hotel is the front desk staff. The front desk...

The room was well furnished and had plenty of charging ports, including USB plugs. The shower was also a welcome sight as it had a modern tile finish. My only gripes are the limited parking and lack of lobby/ breakfast options. But even with that it is a stones throw from a few good dining options.
