Due to its location it has little competition. Hence, it is overpriced. Those who are visiting UC, Berkeley, but are without a car have very few options. The rooms are small and have inadequate light. Without AC it was uncomfortable. You could crack open the window but that brings in a lot of noise from the construction next door.
They serve between 5:30 and 7 AM. Never got a chance to taste it! But the hotel is close to a lot of restaurants and one could easily access public transport.
The front office staff is really nice, friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to check me in early at 12 noon.
