Guest reviews

  • Couple

    It's cheap and there is free wifi

    Sleep quality (due to the noises coming from the room next to ours we couldn't sleep the whole night) and cleanliness (towels were not very clean). Moreover there is no breakfast

  • Couple

    The room was small, dirty, and should have been about half the price. As I opened the main door, it almost hit the end of the bed. The tv was maybe 19 inches an sat oddly across the room, which did not aid in viewing it's already small screen. The refrigerator was unplugged, something in which we did not discover until our food and drinks were properly at room temperature. There was also no coffee maker. The bathroom has a pocket door because the room could not afford another door that swung open and it had poorly covered graffiti all over it. All in all, I felt like I was staying a night in jail rather than having a quick and affordable get away.

  • Single

    What I liked best about my stay is that it was only for one night..

    I will never ever stay there again, I rather sleep in my car, That was the dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed at. Really! Then, there a sign (actually a typed paper ) taped to the wall of the building... WARNING....This is a soft story building with a soft, weak or open front ground floor. You may not be safe inside or near this building during an earthquake. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

  • Older travelers

    Wifi connection is good.

    Walls are thin so if your neighbors are noisy in anyway you can hear it all.

  • Couple

    Well priced motel, a 10 minutes drive from downtown Berkeley. Standard rooms and facilities (free wifi).

    Room smelled of smoke though it was a non-smoking room. Nothing exceptional regarding the room and the location.

  • Couple

    Went to the horse races at Golden Gate Fields and walked around the neighborhood.

    Very nice staff and very accomodating. They let us check in early and the breakfast place next door was awesome. ...Cafe Leila.

  • Couple

    You get what you pay. a place you go to when your broke, and not suprised if you get bad service, and all right room. Is what your payed for right.../.

    Guy behind counter has no costumer service, and can be rude sometimes. they charge a late fee of $10 every thirty min after check out time,which is 11:oo am yet they don't have any alarms or wake up call to offer to wake up. Better bring your own alarm to wake u, if not you will be woken up by a lound knocking on the door, and been rudely told you have 5 minutes. no manners.

  • Single

    Pretty good price, not likely to find better in Berkeley.

    The manager was quite rude, almost constantly arguing with guests. The walls are also quite thin so expect to hear what other guests are talking about or doing. Wifi works but is too slow for streaming anything.

  • Single

    The proprietor and his wife were very hepufl and obliging

  • Single

    It tunred out to be quieter than I expected based on previous reviews.

  • Couple

    The staff were really really nice.

    Walls were kind of thin and noises transferred really easily. I could hear upstairs and next door people walking, closing doors, etc. But I've been living in a really noisy section of a city, so I'm used to sleeping through loud noises.

  • Single

    It was within walking distance of rei co-op.

    No elevator,surly clerk,tiny rooms,poor tv reception,many closed (failed ?) businesses in area.

  • Single

    it was extremely clean

    there was no inside lock on the door, so as a female traveler i felt a little unsafe.

  • Couple

    It was a cheap place to stay, not in a horrid area but not the best area or facilities. Good for the money I guess? I'm cheap but this place reminded me that sometimes cheap isn't better.

    Stains on the carpet, the fridge was not plugged in, no closet just a hanging rack over the bed, janky furniture... As in no chairs and a plastic fold out lawn table.

  • Single

    It was very clean and a lot of effort was put into refurbishing an older building.

    Location was only fair---but adequately matched the low price.
