My stay at the hotel

Posted Mar 29, 2015
Pros: The excellent customer service
Cons: Personally I don't think improvement is necessary, I felt very comfortable
Location: Restaurants and fast food, it had everything close by
The first day I arrived they let me use the restroom before I finished registering myself witch I thought was a very nice gesture, each morning the breakfast was ready. Personally I can't walk very well and the gentlemen helped me carry my luggage to my room and he also showed me how to use the elevator so I wouldn't have to make use of the stairs, he also proved to me that chivalry is not forgotten

Clean and basic hotel very close to UCB

Posted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: This hotel is very clean, quiet, and simple.
Location: Near UC Berkeley
This hotel is very clean, quiet, and simple. There is a tv, free wifi, clean and comfortable bed, a small desk area and a microwave/fridge combo. There is no room service, but there is a continental breakfast that is cold cereal, fruit, and breakfast granola bars. I loved staying here. It was cheap, close to campus (about a 20 min walk to UCB) and safe. I highly recommend if you need a place to stay while checking out Berkeley. You're not coming for a view, or the amenities like a pool or bellhop service. You come to the Rodeway Inn because you need a safe and comfortable place to sleep, bathe, and refresh yourself before continuing on your trip.

Better than usual motel

Posted Mar 22, 2015
Location: At the front of the motel there's a Thai restaurant which is the best I tried so far (I tried two closer to the campus before).
I stayed in Roadway Inn for one week. It is much cleaner than another motel I stayed before on University Avenue.

Nice place in an iffy neighborhood

Posted Mar 22, 2015
Pros: The facility is nice and a really good value.
Cons: Not much you can do about location.
Location: We were in and out, there only for a short visit to UC Berkeley.
The facility is perfectly fine. The rooms are slightly better than an average motel as there is a refrigerator and microwave. It is further from UC Berkeley campus than we would have liked. The neighborhood is only ok.

Okay Hotel for the Price

Posted Mar 21, 2015
Pros: Parking and close distance to restaurant. The staff as friendly.
Outside is nice and well kept, the rooms are a little dated, the bed was too soft and a little uncomfortable for me. Parking was good and safe. Used this hotel for business.

A vintage motel with a boutique hotel feel.

Posted Mar 14, 2015
Pros: Staff, housekeeping, the water fountain and landscaping. Also nice fresh morning breakfast and peaceful environment in the heart of w. university ave
Cons: If the staff had a little bucket and paintbrush for the little corners, the place would be perfect.
Location: BART, food and shops that represent the globe. Greek theater and UCB campus. Historic Telegraph Ave. wonderful lectures, music, pubs.
Near great eating spots and a cool non-Starbucky coffee shop. Close to Bart and not far from campus. We came in on Amtrak and Bart for a lecture and fell in love with this off-street motel with a hotel feeling. Clean with very accommodating staff and a fresh full Continental breakfast in the morning. Clean room and bathroom, very fresh linen and bead spread, new extra pillows, and an actual upscale mattress found in hotels that four times the rate. This is our new Berkeley home away from home. It is an older original motel with vintage furninshings that have been well taken care of. Unless you are a painting contractor nit-picking details, you won't find a thing wrong here. They are getting ready to remodel al floor coverings but still, this place is clean, fresh, and comfy! We loved it! Nice bathtub and top grade toiletries.

Convenient and clean

Posted Jan 12, 2015

I stayed here while visiting my son at Cal. The rooms are small, but nicely appointed, the staff was excellent and friendly, and the free wi-fi is a bonus. I will definitley stay here again.

OK for the price

Posted Dec 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
Cleanliness of the room has dropped quite a bit since last year. Anything the maid could not reach had been left dirty for months. For example teh top 1/3 of the mirrors were filthy. The bedspread was dirty & smelly so we put it on the floor when sleeping. Breakfast was skimpier than last year. For example no yougart or fresh fruit (other than apples) as shown in pictures on the web site. Internet is very slow. Nice parking.

Decent enough hotel with friendly staff

Posted Dec 29, 2014
Pros: location, staff, price
Cons: rooms are older
Location: UC, tons of dining options, interstate nearby
We needed a quick, late-night hotel after a day of travel and this fit the bill. The location is pretty great with access to UC and downtown Berkeley. It's not that easy to find, but has good parking and easy access to rooms (which is nice after a long day). The manager (owner?) was very friendly and helpful. The room itself was comfortable enough for the price and location. It had recently been renovated but it is what it is: a cheap but clean motel.
