This motel is clean and the service is wonderful. Some of the furniture is older, and some in need of repair, but the staff is terrific and will help with any problem you have. There are steps involved to get the the tier of rooms, but they have installed a small wheel-chair elevator to solve any mobility problems. The free breakfast is cold cereal, health bars and coffee. All rooms face a center court, which, although it is the parking lot, is quite lovely. There is a small area with picnic tables and palm plantings with a fountain in the center of the lot. Flowers are in planters attached to the white-wood rails in front of the rooms. They plant roses, hibiscus and petunias. There are also palm plantings at various places as well as two palm and fountain area on either side of the entrance. Additionally, there is a terrific Thai restaurant right next door which delivers to the rooms. We have stayed here multiple times and always enjoyed the experience. The price is also right!

For the price, this place is a pretty strong contender - the rooms are very clean and neat, including the bathroom. Everything was in working order and appeared well-tended. One of the light bulbs was out and management fixed it quickly while I was out. There are a couple of downsides, as is to be expected for a $70 motel room. The heater clicks on and off constantly when it's on, which is a bit annoying/disruptive. The bed is a bit hard and the pillows are terrible, which again, I expect at this price point - I actually travel with a small one of my own. The Internet worked great in the afternoon when I arrived but terrible later at night - I don't know if that was just a one-time problem or if it was because everyone else was home too and it was just too much traffic.

The only thing that I would really warn about - and which is easy to work around if you know - is that the outlets in the rooms only have two prongs! Since almost all computers these days have plugs with three prongs, this is a bit of a problem - especially when traveling you want to be able to plug in at night! The front desk said they used to have an adaptor but could not find it when I called. So bring your own if you want to charge your laptop over night!

In sum, great value for the money and absolutely clean, neat, and safe, but if you need work on a computer and use the internet while at the hotel, come prepared for some challenges!

The Rodeway Inn is located on University Ave, about one mile west of UCB and one mile east of I-80. It is also 3 blocks south of the North Berkeley BART station, although one should be cautious and vigilant walking about this neighborhood at night. The motel is a late 1950's California-style 44-room single story urban motel which has had renovations six years ago. Rooms are small and have small refridgerators and microwaves, but no coffee makers. For multi-day stays, management is stingy with toiletry amenities. The layout of this establishment insulates if from street noises. A complementary limited continental breakfast is available, but the breakfast area has just three small tables and six chairs. A banner at the front proclaims that this property is a "2012 Gold Award" winner, but it isn't obvious what criteria was used to achieve this distinction. Significant AAA and AARP discounts are available.

We are sorry to hear that you found management "stingy with toiletry amenities" for multi- day stays, and do wish you had let the front desk know so the problem could have been addressed. Your comments will be passed on to upper management. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and for staying at the Berkeley Rodeway Inn.

For the money, and at this location, it would be hard to do better. Very well managed this place is like a little oasis. The grounds are lovingly cared for, and very clean and maintained. The room we stayed in for 6 nights was cleaned very well every day, clean bedding and a very comfortable bed. Everything was good or better, a breakfast with cereal, English muffins even waffles or pancakes, sweet rolls was available in the morning. La Mission Mexican grill a couple blocks away offers a good clean breakfast also for a reasonable price. I got a deal on the room, no complaints.

The location on University Ave not far from the Berkeley campus is a big plus. Motel has parking, appears to be recently remodeled. The single story building is shaped like a U, parking spaces are all in the 'interior' and all rooms open up to this courtyard. There are some nice plants (roses) as well as a fountain in the center. Location was surprisingly quiet, although the heater kicking on and off was not ideal. Next time would bring a pyjama and leave the heat off overnight. Bath room was very clean, shiny tiles. Microwave, fridge, two luggage stands, huge flatscreen with satellite. Checking in was smooth, the breakfast area is somewhat small with six chairs and three tables: orange juice, yoghurt, Orowheat toast, coffee etc, with USA today. Yes,would come back here.

Room Tip: Triple AAA rate was a good deal. Leave heat off over night for the best sleep.
