Knights Inn Berkeley CA
Ranked #5 of 20 Hotels in Berkeley
Reviewed September 5, 2012

First, they charged me $25 extra for my 15 years old child. They said to me, " this is America, only child under 12 is free." I asked to show me any
written documents, they showed me a paper that wasn't in English.

Second, the room is very small, I ordered 2 Queen size beds, but one was not a queen size and one side was leaning against the wall.

Last, the motel is on a busy and noisy street, we could hear truck pass by all night.

Delightful Motel and management. Completely unique interior design with special touches: Hand-painted striped wall, beautiful draperies and bedspreads. Excellent granite shower and sink. toilet is in a crazy position. ''Lotions, shampoos and toilet paper is of excellent quality.suitable for five star hotel.

Management was delightful.

This is an older motel in which the rooms have obviously been renovated very recently. My room was small, but tastefully decorated, comfortable and sparkling clean. There's plenty of parking and the location is perfect for visitors to both Berkeley and San Francisco. It's just a block and a half to BART and very accessible to Shattuck Ave. (downtown), Telegraph and the University. Staff was helpful. I'll certainly stay at the Capri again.

I stayed here on my road trip. I thought the room was neat and clean. The free Wi-Fi was a bonus, worked perfectly!!! Staff were friendly too. I paid $95 and loved the room. I usually look at the room before i purchase and I did this with the other hotels on University Ave and this was the cleanest and nice by far. I would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Rooms in corner are nice

This is your basic independently owned motor court type property. The furniture is very basic, but in decent condition, and the lighting is good. The plumbing works, the shower stall is large and newish, the towels are plush. The windows open. The purple and green motif is more stylish than average. The wireless works well, the fellow behind the counter is friendly. It's walking distance to BART, bus lines, the UCB campus, and many restaurants and shops, both high and low end. I'm a runner and quickly found my way to quiet residential streets; it's also a short drive to the Marina and Cesar Chavez Park. The refrigerator and microwave (plus coffeemaker) are a nice touch. If you don't expect charm and seek a decent value and family owned property but don't want to ask yourself, "Has it really come to this?", stay here.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor towards the back.

For those of you who read my reviews, SLAM is the acronym for Stop Loud Annoying Noises and usually applies to hotels where the bedroom doors SLAM closed rather than with a gentle ‘click’.
This is a particular bête noir with me because I often travel across large time zones changes, so there is nothing worse than being shaken from your sleep at 5h00 in the morning by an early departure, thus ruining the very little sleep that you have managed to scavenge from the night.
In the case of this stay, the predictable 5h00 departure did not matter, because I had already been awake from 3h30 but noisy it was.
Being awake at 3h30 in the morning, gave me lots of time to tune into the hotels night noises, with late night or was it perhaps early morning baths being run, television noises and now at 6h00 showers firing away all around.
What gets Americans to rise so early on a Sunday morning?
The room itself was motel standard, clean but the décor was dated.
Importantly a comfortable double bed and adequate lighting.
The small bathroom sported a small, non functioning Jacuzzi which was 50% of the space! Perhaps the source of noctural noises in other rooms? An OK shower.
Free internet
Fair value, but too far out of Berkley downtown to be useful, but OK for a transit stop as was my situation.

Stayed there for 3 nights. Clean room. Liked the washroom and shower. Comfortable bed. Quiet area. Nice neighbourhood. Nobody below or above, depending if you have a room at ground level or top level. Found owner very accomodating due to a booking mistake. I would go back there.

Room Tip: Top floor at back of lot
