“"No hassle, but can be better"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

As a motel, sleeping and parking are good. Breakfast is not an add-on although it's complementary, I'd rather no. The small cafe shop next door is a good alternative.
Free wifi but often disconnected after you've surfed a little while. I never had this problem with my ipad in other hotels.

the service was good but the facilities and beds were so old that not even the best service could compensate. the beds felt so dirty that i slept in full sweats so i didnt touch the covers. the breakfast was very minimal but there was enough to scrape something together. I feel bad because they did their best to provide service but they just didn't have anything to work wirh

I was pleasantly surprised on the "cuteness" of the Rodeway Inn. The bathroom was extremely clean and so was the room which made the stay comfortable knowing the establishment was clean. Breakfast in the morning was nice plus. Walking distance from Bart station and its a pleasant walk in a quiet residential neighborhood. We'll return again!!

The room is a bit on the small side. But it is clean, quiet & conniently located near Trader Joe's & restaurants. There is free wi-fi & it has been working for me very well.

I also really appreciate that there is a hair dryer, microwave & refrigerator in the room.

I stayed at the Rodeway Inn Berkeley on a business trip and it was everything I could have asked for. It's clean, there is plenty of parking, the staff was efficient and pleasant, and it is located near a few great restaurants.

The rooms are typical for this pricepoint. A reasonably comfortable bed, air conditioning, a well lit sink area, and nice shower (with great water pressure). Bonus points for the flat screen tv with Dish Network.

The inn is located within walking distance from some great Indian and Mexican food restaurants. There is continental breakfast, but if you're an espresso drinker there is a lovely cafe right around the corner. The area is well lit and I never felt uncomfortable. Walking around the neighborhood felt reasonably safe, though is not advised for solo individuals late at night.

Highly recommended for business travelers or families on a budget visiting Berkeley.

I booked this hotel for attending San Francisco (SF), because the hotel price in SF is a little expensive for me. This hotel has a good access to the BART station (North Berkeley). It's about ten minute walk (about 500m).
Staff is friendly and kind. The room is usual, but I did not feel inconvenient during my stay. You can see the photos of the room, and we can use a cable TV, Microwave, Refrigerator, Hair Dryer, Individual A/C.
There is a complimentary breakfast, but minimum necessary such as bread, coffee, juice, and a several kinds of fruit.
Around this hotel, there is a 7-eleven with CITI bank ATM within 100m distance. A Supermarket Trader Joe's is also close to this hotel, and its about 500m on the same street of University Ave.
When you go to UC Berkeley, you have to take a bus or to walk about 20-30 minutes. UC Berkeley is not close to this hotel.
When I go to SF again, this hotel is surely one of the affordable hotels.

This is the second time we stayed here while visiting our sons. Our room was clean and neat. We had a small refrigerator to bring home leftovers from dinner and a microwave. The price was good. The WiFi was slow at night, but earlier in the day it worked. We plan to stay there next time we visit our sons.
