Decent place to stay close to Downtown Berkeley

Posted Feb 24, 2015
Nice room, a quick walk from almost everything. I stayed there with my friend for a staycation 2 nights and it wasn't too bad. The only downsides were 1) the cleaning crew coming in the room at 8am; even though we yelled we were sleeping they came in anyway, then proceeded to argue loudly right outside the door. 2) the satellite channels kept changing what was available to watch; We were able to watch CMT on Friday night, but it was blocked for some reason on Saturday night. Continental Breakfast is a joke, but there's a Nations Burgers 1/2 a block away. Plus sides: Good water pressure, clean bed, clean bathroom, clean and working fridge and microwave, central location. Down Sides: lumpy pillows, not-so-great soundproofing, apparently deaf cleaning staff, kind of squeaky bed, room smelled like they were trying to cover-up something gross (WAY too much heavy-scented detergent and cleaners on the sheets, blankets, and bathroom), check-out time is noon but key cards stopped working at 11:30.

Not worth it.

I chose this motel because of its reasonable popularity, but the realness doesn't allow me give this place a second chance. The room smells a little; the heater takes long to heat up the room; other facility is barely satisfactory. The breakfast they serve is negligible.

The room was clean and quiet and the location is superb: close to BART, the campus and many restaurant as well as Trader Joe's.

Pleasantly surprised by this motel better than some hotels in Berkeley. Room is neat, wifi working fast, free coffee, and fridge+Trader Joe's across the street a real bonus. Not to mention the great location.
