Very very rude and unprofessional staff.

Front desk people are very very rude and aggressive... the worst experience in my life. Overall very bad place.

Clean, quiet, upgraded room.

We enjoyed our stay, Trader Joes nearby and a few restaurants to choose from within walking distance. Breakfast lacked luster, not much to choose from, presentation poor. We ate a great breakfast at Nations down the street. Overall pleasant experience.

Highly recommended.

Posted Jun 2, 2017
Pros: Excellent central location with direct route on University Ave east to U.C. Campus and west to freeway.
Cons: Nothing. Looks like they've recently renovated the rooms,
Location: Great restaurants north Berkeley on Shattuck Ave "Gourmet Ghetto", 4th street restaurants and shops west off University.
Quiet restful place to stay with a friendly helpful staff. Clean room, comfortable bed with a good shower and plenty of towels. Got a call on my cell about an hour after checking out that I left my overnight bag so was able to pick it up late on my way back to Fresno. That has never happened to me before having lost items over the years--I'm 78.

Nice Motor Lodge only a few blocks from University

Posted May 2, 2017
Pros: Location, upgrades, staff, nice bed and décor on wall, updated bathroom.
Pleasant surprise! Staff was wonderful, property very clean, room better than expected for a motor lodge. Nice décor, updated bathroom, nice attempt by owner to take a simple chain hotel and make it a notch above the competition. Bed linen was lovely, bed was comfy, very clean. Continental breakfast was simple with just a few choices, but perfect to meet my needs. Internet is fast, parking convenient, location wonderful. Walking distance to myriad coffee and food shops. I will definitely stay again.

Surprisingly good value for money

Posted Apr 25, 2017 on Hotels
This was a surprisingly good budget motel within walking distance to downtown Berkeley. I'm happy I chose this one over the more expensive ones slightly closer to the downtown area. The room was clean, reasonably quiet, and surprisingly well-equipped an spacious, with separate closet. The desk is not staffed at night.

Ehh.

Kind of dumpier and noisier than I was expecting. Mold in bathroom. Front desk guy is not so friendly. The bed was comfortable though and it is close to UC Berkeley-which was the point.

Acceptable room, great price.

Posted Apr 21, 2017 on Hotels
The front desk was polite, and efficient. I feel the posted photos of the rooms aren't quite in line with the room I had. My room had warped baseboards peeling from the wall, and the walls could use a coat of new paint. However, it was clean. My room also had a bathroom window that was facing the main road, there is a super bright light outside that window so I closed the bathroom door at night. The room was a bit noisy. Sounds of cars, and people milling about on the streets in the morning. But I use earplugs anyway so it didn't bother me. I tend to be a little paranoid about bedbugs, so I always do a thorough search (mattress, baseboard, outlets), My room had NO bedbugs or bugs of any kind, stayed two nights and not a single bug. Overall I was satisfied.

Nice location, updated rooms fast wifi

Posted Apr 20, 2017
Pros: Location was good, rooms comfortable, not the biggest in size but incl. refrig/microw/coffemaker
Cons: A bit overprized i my opinion
Location: SFO nearby but recall the transporation, and fee for the bridge.
Sympatic and friendly staff. 45 min from SanFrancisco (North beach/Pier)
