“very nice and clean hotel”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

We recently spent 5 nights at this hotel. Everything looks new and is clean. Room was nice
and big. Breakfast is plentyful with fruit, yoghurt, juices, coffe etc. waffles, breads plus..to choose from. Reception was friendly. Very convenient location to freeway and Bart. Grocery store and various shopping is nearby. Mattresses are very comfortable and I am fussy, as I have a back problem. Decoration is simple but nice. In all, I was pleasantly surprised at the
new, modern fixtures.

We travelled to the Bay Area in August 2012, with two teenagers. The location was very convenient to the freeway (I-80) and easy to find. The motel is not fancy, but was clean and comfortable, and pretty much exactly as described on their website. Breakfast was simple – cereals, coffee, bagels, juice – but adequate and free! The BART stop (El Cerrito Norte) is within a ten minute walk, and central San Francisco 30 minutes further on the train. There’s not much on the street except a couple of diners, which are fine if you just want a quick bite when you arrive, but we didn’t venture much in the neighbourhood so I can’t say if there’s any other shopping locally. The rooms were quiet and comfortable, but we couldn’t get the air conditioner to work (we forgot to inform reception the next day, so not the motel’s fault). Best of all it was right on the freeway when we left the area for our next stop. Excellent value, and well worth a look if you want a cheap option when travelling to the San Francisco area.

I stayed here with two girlfriends on a recent Bay Area trip. While not fancy, it was a good base of operations for exploring thr Bay Area. It was walking distance to BART and right next to the freeway so it is easy to get around. There is free wifi and a continental breakfast. The beds were a little firm and the towels were not the best, but you can't beat the price. It has been recently renovated as well.

It wasn't glamorous, but it was what we needed for our stopover on the East Side - cheap and clean. They've updated rooms recently - ours was a little too recent and still smelled a bit of new paint. So we slept with the windows open and the heat on which made it fine for us. Even with the windows open the location was totally quiet all night long. For the money and parking I would definitely stay here again if I was traveling again with a car in the Bay area.

This is a clean hotel. Myself and family members have stayed here several times.

Hotels in the Bay Area are generally very expensive. This hotel is reasonably priced.

This is not a destination hotel for spending your vacation. This is a clean place to stay that is safe, and does not cost an arm and a let.

Enjoy your visit to the Super 8, El Cerrity

Nice hotel and close to the BART station. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff were very friendly and recommended various restaurants to dine based on our tastes. This a great location and the BART ride was a half hour away from San Francisco. If you are looking for a nice hotel that is close to the Bay Area and very affordable, this is the place. Thank you to the staff for making our stay as pleasant as possible.

The hotel is really close to the BART stop and Safeway store, which is very convenient, when you're new to the town. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. Good service for the $.
On the downside, even though the hotel was half-empty, I got the room facing the dumpster and a noisy road. And the window wouldn't close completely. I imagine this was a problem of one particular room :) Despite this, and "thanks to the jetlag", I slept like an angel, but still the manager should care a little more about the guests. The breakfast was "so-so", but sufficient.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback regarding our hotel. I would like to apologize for not reponding to you in a timely manner. We want to asure you that we checked the window and found out that the window latch caused the window not to close all the way. We have corrected that now and also advised all our housekeeper to check all the windows and made that as part of our daily routin. We are proude to mention that we have completed the upgrade to our breakfast to now include Waffles, Oatmeal, Yogert etc.

Thank you
