Truly awful hotel experience
Posted Jan 29, 2017
I've stayed in many hotels over the years, but this one manages to take the title of worst for my one night stay in Berkeley. First off, when I got to my room the door was basically open. The furniture in the room looks like it has spent a decade in a frat house. The hotel building itself looks more like a motel. The fridge in the room makes a loud noise that prevented me from sleeping, so I had to unplug it. All I could have asked for was a decent night sleep, but I was woken up at 7 am by loud cleaning staff right outside my door, which is apparently paper thin. After about 30 min of them loudly talking in the same spot, I had to go outside and tell them to quiet down. The parking lot filled up the night before, so I had to do street parking which requires payment after 9am. I should not have to pay to park for a hotel. After experiencing this hotel, I decided without a doubt that I will always spend the extra $40 to get a drastically better experience.
