Super 8 Berkeley
Ranked #9 of 20 Hotels in Berkeley
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We stayed there for 2 nights. The check-in area is so small that can only fit 1 or the most 2 persons. The price is more expensive than a 3 stars hotel in downtown Oakland but this was the Berkeley homecoming weekend so no complaint. The room and bathroom was clean but the bathroom door couldn't close. The refrigerator need to be cleaned and the air-conditioning is noisy. The complimentary breakfast has white and wheat bread, waffle, only and the area is so small. Transportation is good. We took the AC transit across the street to go to Berkerly and returned. BART station is a few minutes walk.

This place is not cheap for a motel but the location is great. It's only a short drive to all the places i love in town. The ghetto gourmet Shattuck Ave was only a few minutes drive. Acme Bread was about five minutes away. The gallery row at 4th street is less than ten minutes. The room is basic and clean.

Good location for visits to Cal Berkeley. Clean. Staff was helpful. A little pricey for a Super 8. Checked out early in the morning and could not get a receipt before departure. Didn't receive promised receipt to be sent via email.

The motel is a short bus ride from the Amtrak station and 2 blocks away from the Bart train into San Francisco. Our room was small but comfortable and clean. The breakfast area is a bit cramped and simply offered cereal, yogurt, and toast along with tea, coffee and juice.

First let me say that the Super 8's vary greatly. I needed a place to stay in Berkeley where I could show samples to a customer. I went online looking for a convenient, inexpensive motel that showed a photo of a nice breakfast area that I was hoping to use to lay out my samples. I even made the request when I booked the room. When I got there, the office was cramped, (one foot in the door and you are at the counter) where the gentleman came out of his attached home with the TV blaring) No, I could not use the breakfast room. Asked to borrow an extra chair for my room for two hours and was told no. Extra towels but nothing else. Bars on the bathroom window, cramped room, hard bed and signs all over about video surveillance. The parking lot was lit up like a Hollywood premier. I saw a couple of other places down the street I will try next time!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a good room but I only saw mine. The motel is close to a lot of things bu...

Thanks for staying with us at the Super 8. We are truly sorry you were not happy. However, in our front desk log book we have notes, sayinng that you mentioned how nice the motel was and how clean it was. Also, you were showing fabric out of your room to your clients and wanted a extra chair. We are a Super 8 express we do not have extra chair. We have a breakfast room if you want to use. We gave you towels as well. However, you can not sale fabric here, this is a motel. Thank you! Please come again we gave you great service which you mentioned when you checked out thanks have a good day.

with much respect,

Management
