Close to campus & clean

Posted Sep 5, 2014
Renovated, quiet, walking distance to campus & BART. Room was small, but bed was comfortable. Only complaint was cleaning staff was a little noisy early in the morning, but we had a room close to their supply room. Would stay again.

Good price, friendly staff, good location

Posted Sep 3, 2014
Pros: Price
Cons: Remodel. Update AC's and beds. Maybe a fresh coat of paint.
Staff was friendly. Price was excellent. The building is old and so are the furnishings. They could use a remodel but other than that, what was there was clean and it all served the purpose just fine. It is in within walking distance of good food which is a plus.

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.

Good deal

Posted Jul 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
We've stayed numerous times at 4-5 other motels along University over the past few years, this was our first time at this one. We both liked it, for cleanliness, cost and location. We'll definitely check prices here next time we need a motel in this area. Included breakfast was a little better than other motels we've stayed at on University, mostly starches but at least it's hot (I'm not a. Fan of cold breakfasts). Toast and toaster waffles, hot coffee caff and de caff, packaged yogurt. Nothing organic or gourmet chic but it'll get you up and going (packets of maple syrup for toaster waffles helped me:). Air conditioner had a nice fan option, and the noise was actually soothing through the night. We both have sleep problems, I actually use a sleep noise app at home to sleep, and their air conditioner unit sounded just like my soothing app. I'd say give it a try. Nice folks running the place.
