Conveniently located to major highways and to UC Berkeley campus. Free onsite parking. Many rooms were being completely gutted while I was there. I think mine had already been done. Perfectly decent place.
Front desk staff weren't particularly helpful.
Good price for the area
Room 10 had bed bugs. I'm now super stressed that I may carry them home with me. I've had to quarantine the suitcase and all the clothes I had with me that night. The person at the front desk refused to see my pictures and refused to acknowledge that they had bed bugs. Would not come to the room to look. She just kept saying that they have a contract with an exterminator, so they can't have bed bugs. News flash: bed bugs are very resistant to pesticides. If you run a hotel, you should know this. They need to acknowledge and deal with this issue. Until then, steer clear.
Price is right, and location is convenient, clean, and quiet.
Space heater for heat, and fan for air.
Everything was clean
Couldn't figure TV out and church music woke us up in morning
clean and quiet
Room was cold. Wall heater did not work. Portable electric heater insufficient.
No ice machine broken
There is train noice over night
Convenient distance to the Berkley city. Beds were comfortable and clean.
The odor of towels was not bad, but not pleasing and nice either. Parking was not secure. No coffee or breakfast facility.
Rooms have been recently remodeled and are kept very clean. Very helpful staff and as a woman traveling alone I feel safe although the location seems a bit iffy.
Good staff, nice people
The construction, satellite tv not working properly
It was very quiet which is what i wanted.. The receptionist was friendly.. Would stay here again..
I didnt like how open the key drop off box is.. It seems unsecure like any person walking by could reach in and take the key.. Which has the room number taped on it...
Even though the location is right on the main E-W street it is tucked away securely so that it is safe and quiet. The room was perfectly nice, and the bathroom was redone with fancy granite and attractive fixtures.
Ran out of TP (there weren't extras in the room) and had a hard time raising anyone to get more. They were very sweet about it when I did get someone, however.
For the price and the location, it was excellent. The bed was comfortable, the room clean, the shower was great, it was fairly quiet and close to everything. It has a microwave, fridge, T.V. and Wifi. All you need.
No staff. I stayed two nights and they do not clean the room and skimpy on extra toilet paper or towels. However, if you ask, they will give them to you.
TV control didn't work. No tissues in dispenser. No A/.C. No clock radio, old food carton under bed(!), after 2nd day room was not cleaned. Tiny unwrapped soaps. Didn;t replace soap, lotion, shampoo after lst day. No safety rubber mat in a very slippery (shiny glassy tile) in shower. †owels were very thin and like sandpaper. Had to ask for 2nd set of towels. Dark. dingy room. This is not "pet friendly" but I had an assistance dog so it was ok on that. Smaller than standard room. I would NOI book again, and I don't know how it got so high a rating.
I loved the king size bed. My room was very clean. The little frig and Microwave were a plus. The motel was on a main street so there were plenty of places to eat. All near bus lines as well. Great neighborhood feel.
Lack of outlets. I didn't see an A/C as well.
Location was well situated with good freeway access but also lots of things to walk to and explore. Well tied into public transit. Rooms were a bit small, but nice. Bed comfortable. I was concerned we would be bothered by traffic on the nearby road, but this wasn't a problem.
There were a few small things missing. No Kleenex, even when I left a note asking for some. No place in the sink area to hang a hand towel. Rooms seemed to be cleaned very late, like after 6pm, but that could be because it was Thanksgiving and a very busy time.
The service was great, very amicable and comprehensive and professional.
Location and friendly staff
The bedding smelled like someone else's cologne.
Given the high price of hotels in this area, this was the cheapest. While very simple the room was clean and of respectable quality
That damn train coming by a few times during the night whaling its horns. While the tracks were about a half mile away, there were loud enough to wake you and question is it really necessary to blast its horns non stop ?
Staff was great and super helpful. Room was clean abd well equipped for a motel. Room of decent size. Good night sleep!
Furniture a bit outdated.
Bus line directly to UC Berkeley. Reception lady extremely helpful. Large room. Newly renovated bathroom.
The carpet, bed spread and curtains need to be replaced. Area seems a bit sketchy at night, though I never had any issues.
room very clean, bed comfortable, had a rental car and there was adequate parking, many nice restraurant's within a three block walk, there is a service station and store across the street and a 7/11 about 2 blocks away where we bought bottled water. I would stay here again
one ice machine and it was broken my only real complaint, the TV was very 1970's
We requested a room with a bath, then on discovering it was a two story facility and we were to be on the second floor with no way to get our luggage upstairs (we are older with disabilities) we requested a room on the first floor. Got there and we had no bathtub.Although the place seemed fairly empty we were told there were no rooms with bathtubs available but possibly there would be the next day. Never happened. The ice machine was out of order. The TV didn't work. The insulation was bad and the road and surrounding noise was loud and bothersome. We checked out after two nights.
Excellent space and huge bed. Nice clean bathroom.
Room was not clean up. Never got an explanation. No clean towels for the second morning. When I asked for towels got a response with attitude.
You cant beat the price. The room was very clean and the staff was friendly.
The neighborhood was a seemed a little scary at first, but it ended up being just fine. There is no air conditioning, so it can get really hot in the room.
