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.

Too much for nothing

Posted Nov 12, 2014
Pros: Was able to check-in early. No parking charge.
Cons: The rooms really need to be updated. Specifically, the beds, sheets, towels, carpet, shower, bathroom window, paint.
Location: Location is pretty good and close to the Berkeley campus. Gas stations and places to eat are walking distance.
I paid too much for a 1 queen room! Looks like Travelodge just bought-out this out-dated motel. What is updated? The door locks, TV, and windows…that's it. Automatically there's a stench in the air when you walk in, smelled like moldy carpet. This place has a later check-out than other hotels, 12:00pm, with a 2:30pm check-in. The front desk guy did let us check in early at 12:30 with no extra charge, so that was great since we had driven more than 6 hours to get to Berkeley. Although it was nice staying close to campus, looking back, I would have rather stayed further away in Emeryville. The only reason I stayed here was because all other decent hotels were all booked. I would not recommend this Travelodge unless they completely update their rooms. I actually did the check on my body to see if I had been bitten by bedbugs! Ugh, never again.

one of worst inn

Posted Oct 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
1. not enough parking space. 2. reception opens 7am-11pm. if you are going to check in or check out early morning or late night, you may get trouble. 3. no breakfast even a piece of bread. 4. staffs are not kind, Indian guy on front desk angry me when i get there in midnight.
