  • 8.8

    Just nice older property. Clean and accomadating.

    No tub

  • 5.8

    Location

    Buckled flooring/tiles in shower, stained bedspread

  • 7.0

    Didn't have any problem, room was OK, coffee machine in there, WiFi working enough good, staff there when I needed them, easy check-in and check-out...

    At least 30 mins to SF, but that's your choice... No breakfast.

  • 4.6

    Proximity to Cal Berkeley was great. Friendly staff.

    No air conditioning. Very old decor and carpeting.

  • 7.8

    location, breakfast, parking, room was clean.

    breakfast space was so small that there were no chairs for most of the morning. Would like to get rid of all carpeting and go to smooth floors that are cleaner

  • 7.8

    The staff is very friendly and accomodating. Location is a touch out of the city but easy to get in and out of downtown from here. Nice area to bike around. Dated, but clean.

    I asked to change original room since it was tucked away in a corner. I was easily accomodated. The place is dated and is definitely a no-frills type of hotel, though coffee is always available in the lobby. Main office is closed late at night. For a more reasonable, safe place on the outskirts of town, it is a good deal.

  • 9.6

    I loved the room we received it was in its own corner and private. The room was very spacious and good quality.

    That there wasn't breakfast..but that's neither here nor there.

  • 3.2

    Nice tile in the bathroom. That's the only good thing I can say.

    when we first got there, the toilet was intermittently running and wasting water during our historic drought. I called the office, and eventually someone came. He looked at it, then said he would fix it the next day, which he didn't. To top it off, I got bit by bedbugs that night! No wonder the place reeked of bleach when I checked in. They probably had an infestation and didn't warn me. Stay away from here.

  • 4.2

    nothing

    If you stay for a night like us it is ok but room incredibly stinky, beds are noisy. Please consider before book. also is wi-fi very poos and slow.

  • 7.0

    Clean

    A motel like this can be expected in the middle of the desert, not in the center of Berkeley. And the price was more in line with Berkeley than the desert...

  • 5.4

    Staff was nice, room was clean.

    Room was rather dark, squeezed into the back and not really pretty or modern. Bathroom was tiny and could have needed an update as well. No breakfast. Too expensive for what was offered.

  • 7.0

    Decent location near UC Berkeley and the Friendly staff who helped me with a very late check-in.

    Bed and pillows were quite stiff. Very loud if your room is near the road - couldn't close the bathroom window to cut off the noise.

  • 7.0

    Quiet

    The sink and toilet were so close to each other there was no room for two people and toilet is too low for seniors with problems in getting up.

  • 5.8

    The front desk staff was very nice and the outside roses are nice but other then that?

    Old room the bed felt like box springs grease points on walls "like car grease" the door lock wouldn't work and the housekeeper thought at 8am she would just open the door no knock first.

  • 6.6

    The setup as a courtyard was a nice safety quality for the area. This also have a cute Mbiance wuth the style of building and the roses and lights around.

    Bed was like a rock, no padding.
