눉I stayed two nights and while I stepped out briefly during the day, the maids took my towels to wash them. I appreciate their efficiency to wash towels. They didn't replace the towels until 5 pm. I didn't have towels to dry my hands. I would've been happy to conserve water and reuse my towels one more time.
The free breakfast is weak. Cold cereal, waffles, yogurt, packaged danish and apples. The coffee was terrible too.
눇The hotel was freeway close. BART, grocery store, and restaurants are a close 4-minute walk. Downtown Berkeley is only 10 minutes away. Free parking was ample.
The hotel had only one entrance and the front door was locked early, which is a good safety feature.
The building is old and the hotel has been remodeled and is slightly modern. My room had a small kitchen, refrigerator, and microwave which worked great for me.
It's a clean place to stay for a night or two. I would come back and recommend it to those who are looking for a clean, affordable place to stay and relatively close enough to Oakland, SF and Wine Country.
