"Terrible Hotel with bad staff"
Check-in was like going through a TSA suspects encounter. I am Caucasian, 76 and and wear Tommy Bahama. I used the hotel cart as the room was the furthest back possible. There were about eight stairs to get to the first floor rooms!! I told the clerk I had some heavy items ( case of wine) on the cart. He brought out a 8-10 foot wooden plank for me to use. I told him I hoped the hotel had insurance at which point he helped me get the cart up the ramp. The room eas OK. It had 2 bedside lamps and one entrance light. Other than that and the bathroom, no other lights. The bathroom fan was excessively loud and went on every time the bathroom light went on. The parking lot was littered with trash. Two women were sleeping in the entrance foyer at 4:00pm . What a dump.

"San Francisco getaway"
The power went out and the hotel did not have a generator. We could not leave our room because the key card would not work without electricity. It was out for approx. 2.5 hrs. so therefore we could not leave for dinner. The hotel had no back up system in place nor procedures for such an occurrance. There was a guest who was unfortunately in the elevator and was stuck in there until the power was restored. The hotel offered no compensation for the inconvenience.

"Our stay at La Quinta."
We arrived earlier than check in time. I called prior to ask if we could check in early. They were very accommodating and said they would. The room was ready and very clean. The only down fall, was that they were doing some work next door .Not sure if it was an apt building. But early in the morning, they were hammering away and making noise. And the window wouldn't close. It was opened about 1/4. Check out time is 12 noon. We put do not disturb sign on door knob and you could hear the vacuum cleaner and the staff outside in hallway. They came and knocked at out door. It was a little past 10:30 a.m. I didn't appreciate that.

"La Quinta Berkeley"
Room was gross with black mold in the bathroom. Bathroom door looked like beavers had been chewing on it. Whole hotel is tragic. Sign in front said renovations in new year but it's May and nothing is renovated. The LA Quinta chain should be ashamed. This hotel should not be part of a formerly reputable chain.

"You get what you pay for..."
I imagine I got good rates because the room was next door to several other rooms under construction. Not too sure. There was plastic laid out on the floor for the duration and workers were coming in and out, slamming doors and whistling (in monotone). The neighborhood is great. Downtown Berkeley is where I wanted to be, though I would have preferred somewhere in Oakland, which is where I directed the search. Not sure what went wrong there, but I didn't have any reason to object while I was booking the room. The folks that frequent this establishment also seem to be... suspicious.

"You get what you pay for..."
Found this hotel to be an inexpensive option for Berkeley area, but make it be known that this is not a good area of Berkeley. Most bldgs in area have bars on windows/doors. The hotel was undergoing construction on our floor which was very noisy beginning at 8am which is way earlier than I had planned to awake. "Free continental breakfast" was minimal, and was put away at 9am one morning even though brkfst hrs listed as 6-9:30am. Another day, everything was gone by 9am without restocking.

Went to admitted students day at Berkeley and this hotel was reasonably priced, offered free breakfast, easy access to bus, close to restaurants, and a bonus it was close to cute shops on 4th Street. Hotel was clean, comfortable, and staff was nice. Hotel was a 2 mile flat walk to Berekely and catching the bus was super easy.

"Okay stay"
This is a very old hotel has dated carpeting and a very old elevator. We had a room on the 3rd floor facing the back. The room furniture has been updated and is modern but, the carpet is green and dated. The bathtub is old, faucets are ancient, bathtub had stains and all they have done is install a new shower curtain. The walls are thin and you can hear your neighbors air conditioner running. We had to sleep with a towel under the door floor due to a large gap letting the hallway light in while sleeping. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Neighborhood is sketchy, noisy and near the freeway, don't leave anything in your car. In all not a pleasant stay.

We were looking for a hotel near family that offered breakfast, free parking, a pool and didn't cost a fortune. This fit the bill. Some parts of room were a bit 'tired' (worn door frames, etc.) but felt safe and we were comfortable.

"Attending a college visit to UC Berkeley"
Our experience was awful!!! The room had LOTS of mold in the windows and bathroom, a broken window that didn't close all the way (on the first floor), dirty carpet so couldn't walk in bare feet without getting them dirty, a toilet that didn't flush, no working fan, etc. the banquet room was having a huge party on Sat night so there were lots of people meandering in and out until late. I would have left to find another hotel had I not been traveling with 4 kids. Because of what I saw of the surrounding area when coming in, not knowing the area and the fact that it was late when we got in, I didn't feel safe just packing up our things and trying to find something else. I most definitely would not recommend this hotel to anyone!!!

This hotel is in need of and is getting a makeover. The staff is friendly. The rooms are a nice size, and there is plenty of free parking. They do a good job with the breakfast. It's a little loud due to being on a busy street and the train station. There are slim choices in Berkeley, this is about what you get.

"Very mixed bag"
All around kind-of worn out looking. Staff was pretty helpful and responsive. However, some curious things going on. As I checked in and went up to my room, I opened the door, and there was one of the housekeeping staff just sitting at my desk. She kept apologizing and shot out of the room. Groups of staff congregated in the side storage rooms , and hung out there sitting on the floor. .?? It was relatively clean, but needs a redecorating and upgrade. My shower did not work at all, so they switched me to another room...annoying!

"Sign says changes coming, can't come soon enough!"
Hotel looked more like a motel. Staff was ok, James was really the helpful one. James let me borrow his charger overnight to charge my phone. Hotel rooms need attention. Mold in shower, shower water pressure lacks enough pressure to flow properly through the nice shower head. Down comforter wasn't washed well, stains and other artifacts stuck to it. Didn't use that comforter. Mini fridge rattles all night while running.

"Great Hotel, Great Location"
We had a nice big corner room on the third floor, king bed, kitchenette, TV, wifi, desk, sitting chairs. We could entertain! Even though there must be a million kids that stay at this La Quinta, the room was quiet. Breakfast is included and covers the usual waffles, quick breads plus sausage and eggs. With all the kids two mornings breakfast was a little crowded but we managed and got to talk to some interesting people. Free parking, too. The location is convenient to Berkely/Oakland, UCB, and San Francisco across the bay. I recommend it and would go back.

"Good spot, good breakfast, less money than others"
Really nice people at front desk. Kids had a good time checking out the pool and exercise room. And the breakfast was super awesome - with waffle makers, bagels, eggs, sausage, apples, bananas, yogurt, coffee, etc. Access to the HDMI and other ports on TV. Didn't try wifi, but it was available. Tons of regulars there, like long-term worker types, which I thought was cool. Surprised how quite even on the first floor since it's right there by the busy street.

First room literally shook when elevator or garage door was in operation. Moved room second room smelled VERY STRONGLY of smoke in the bathroom. Stayed there because we were attending a retreat in the area. The neighborhood is pretty sketchy--we didn't feel safe walking side streets at night. It is quite far away from restaurants, except for a few choices. We took a Lyft everywhere.

"Beware - ANTS!"
The location of the hotel was good. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was yummy too. The room appeared to be clean and the bed was very comfy, but..... when the ants arrived in the evening, I thought, well it's just a few, I can deal with it. In the morning was a different story - ants, EVERYWHERE. My tote bag was on the floor and filled with ants, the desk, in the bathroom, everywhere.....When the front desk gal asked me how my visit was, I told her everything was great until the little vistors arrived, she shrugged it off and then the manager came out from the back and told me he was new. Did not offer any explanation or an apolgy. I intead to let the LaQuita headquarters know about my experience. Nice hotel if they get rid of the ants!

We were not happy. The walls were paper thin, so you can hear everything. Our room was never clean while we were out nor did we get fresh towels and it was going to take two hours to get clean ones. The Wi-fi was not strong either. Although breakfast was okay, it ended too early, which was not cool since we wanted to sleep in a bit.

"Great for a quick trip, not luxury"
Well you get what you pay for. The hotel building itself is very old and outdated. It looks very run down from the outside and a bit ghetto. The inside is better, it is still outdated but clean. The staff was very nice and the room was clean. The fridge worked, the shower water was hot and the towels were clean and fresh. The breakfast was nice, fresh waffles, eggs, sausage, toast, cereal, milk, juices, fruit, yogurt, etc. so no complaints there. Their fitness center is nice, they have a couple of machines treadmill, bike, basic stuff to get a decent workout in. The pool area was clean-did not go in there but from what I could see it was clean. Basically, if you are looking for a comfy, clean bed to sleep in, a hot shower, and a decent breakfast stay here. If you want any type of luxury then I'd recommend finding a different hotel.

The 1st room we had when we flushed the toliet it overflowed all over the bathroom floor. We were then moved into another room. In the morning when we went to take a shower the drain was not draining. After 1 person took a shower it took over 30 min to drain and when the next person took a shower the water was up to there ankles when they got out. When we left by the front door the ceiling was leaking from one of the rooms above onto the floor. They had a bucket by the front door and it would have been easy for anyone to slip and fall.
