Well it is a 2 Star Hotel

Posted Aug 21, 2014
When I booked this I saw the high review rating ... Read a few and decided to book. I guess the high ratings are relative to what else might be available for give same price and not an absolute one. It is clean and the bathroom updated but pretty meager accommodations. Next time I would look for one a little further away or spend more money.

cheap but clean

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: price; staying in SF would have been about 3-4X as much. As such, it only required a 30 min BART trip to get in. Well worth it for what I saved.
Cons: About 20K of upgrading would go a long way to raising this place a level.
Location: UC Berkeley is close along with all the attractions of the Bay Area.
this was exactly what I expected, a no frills place on a noisy street, worn building but clean and an excellent price. The bathroom had been renovated and I saw no distressing dirt or mold in the bathroom so quite happy to have that. It isn't too far from the BART station or the university.

Needs refurbishing, very limited breakfast.

Posted Aug 15, 2014
Stayed here for two nights. Opted for Berkeley in order to "do" San Franscisco without the car and use the BART (walking distance)- worked well. Room was gloomy, dated, carpet a bit sticky. Breakfast was very limited, in a small room off from the reception. Had coffee maker in our room. Looked like the bathroom had been refurbished but the the main room needed attention. Walked to National Giant Burger (chain) for an easy good value dinner (pies reportedly good but we were too full to try them - looked good!). Wifi worked well.

We stayed in a comfortable, clean, quiet room where wifi, shower, toilet, sink, lights, TV all functioned well. The furniture, while somewhat worn, was adequately spacious. Bars on the windows enabled cross-ventilation when both bathroom and bedroom windows were opened. The exterior showed considerable wear, but, was cleaned daily. The breakfast room was clean and provided cereal, toast, coffee and orange juice.

Clean but uncomfortable

Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: Bathroom
Cons: New beds, pillows and air conditioning.
Location: Everything in walking distance, as well as BART if you plan to go into the city
Conveniently located close to UCB and downtown Berkeley, only blocks from a Trader Joes. Room was clean, recently remodeled bathrooms, nice sized fridge. Beds were very uncomfortable, soft, lumpy, tilted even though the room was level, and pillows were ridiculously lumpy. Air conditioning was not working, just a fan and temps were quite warm for Berkeley. Also Expedia is incorrect, there is no breakfast.

Pros: Location
Cons: Everythin
Just one night. TV did not work, nor did the AC unit. People at the front desk did not respond to either concern. Last stay for me at that property.
