I went to visit my daughter at UC Berkeley and stayed in this hotel. It was nice a quiet at night, so I slept well. I used the hotel gym, which was great. Parking in the lot was easy, and I was able to check e-mail and print out my boarding pass on the hotel computer. The breakfast was free, but it was lousy. I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Elyria, Ohio and their breakfast was great, so that was what I was expecting. I bought myself a can of salsa to put on the eggs in the morning because they were so bland. They really need to add fresh fruits and vegetables. The only fruit was unripe bananas and there were lots of cheap carbs--bread, bagels, doughnuts, English muffins, and cinnamon rolls. If you want to gain weight and get diabetes, that's the place to eat. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. I had a suite with a couch, fridge and microwave. I would stay there again, but I would hope the breakfast had become healthier.
