Really noisy street and train horn really loud during eveningGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Convenient location for business purposes. Rooms are clean, but facility is old, air conditioners are noisy. Staff is friendly. Bedding is comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
very accomodating....allowed an early check-in which was great as I had travelled all evening !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"East Bay Visiting"
It was a quick overnight with Breakfast and they had room for my truck and trailer in the back parking lot... yay. Made my son's 'move-in' weekend much nicer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Northern California Trip"
Met our expectations fully given the price and type of hotel. La Quinta is a mid-class hotel which is fully functional and exactly what I was looking for.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Visiting our son"
The location was great, easy to find, just a little worn out. But I will stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very convenient location. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was included in price and was plentiful and offered a good variety of things to choose from. Rommel was very clean and the bed was super comfy. I stayed 4 nights and so had opportunity to really judges the accommodations. Should be rated as at least a 31/2 star hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Staff with Terrible Rooms"
The employees were great! However, the room conditions of the hotel were beyond acceptance level. I will never come back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice stay"
The hotel was clean and great location for me. The bed was very comfortabl and the breakfast was very good. The hostess for breakfast was very friendly and helpful. I would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convienient to Berkeley"
About what you would expect from this sort of hotel. Coffee machine was inadequately maintained. Hotel was clean and comfortable--but had clearly seen better days.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good! Around the office area looks cheap holes in the walls etc. also a sign that said traffic school upstairs. that didnt make me feel real safe!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleased with the facility and staff"
I was pleased with the hotel and its staff. The hotel front desk clerk George was professional and provided assistance with boarding pass and questions I asked about Berkeley ..........Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything good , but the breakfast : poor qualityGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Internet connection really sucks! This hotel is old, but obviously remodeled. Our stay was okay, considering the price we paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"reasonable price and convenient location"
The location is ideal for a visit to UC Berkeley and it is easy to access from major freeway (I-80). Hotel is clean and feels safe. My main complaint is the coffee at breakfast- Awful! The food was pretty good, though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Must improve Internet service!!!"
Location was convenient for UC Berkeley trip, but so so immediate area. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast room was great with the nicest lady greeting everyone and being so kind and helpful. Internet was horrible and frustrating. Make sure it's been improved, if you need this service, before booking. They said it would be improved soon. I'm certain staff […] is tired from complaints.

"STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL"
This is, by far, the worst hotel I have stayed in my life. I had to go to a convenience store and buy cleaning supplies to use the bathroom...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fairly good except for dog noises."
This is my second time staying here in La Quinta. It was an overall pleasant stay except for the dog noises late at night (La Quinta is pet-friendly). The breakfast lady definitely was my favourite part of my stay - she's always so energetic and friendly in the morning. I love her!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was fine, and a good deal for the money. Nothing special and no problems. Room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was pretty good. Location was perfect for us - just down the road from UC Berkeley, where we were visiting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"exactly what we needed"
clean, wi-fi was good, beds comfortableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking distance to Amtrak, far from BART"
My sis and I stayed here overnight so we could spend more time in Berkeley. After walking around Downtown Berkeley all day, we BARTed to the North Berkeley BART station and figured it would be a short walk to the hotel. It was not as close as I thought, so if you plan to do something similar to what we did (not bring a car, spend all day walking), be […] prepared to walk even more once you get off BART and then be really tired by the time you get there. I admit it was my fault, because I thought it looked like a 20-minute walk on the map, but it took us twice as long and at one point, I was like, OMG where are we? But when we eventually got there, it was a nice hotel. So yeah, it's far from the BART station, but super close to the Amtrak station (4 blocks) so it's like a pro/con. The staff were really nice and helpful. I give the hotel itself 5 stars but I give the convenience of the location/surrounding neighborhood 2 stars. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Back to the Bay Area after 17 years"
Great location to experience what Berkeley and the Bay Area had to offer at a great value.Genuine Expedia guest review
"a great continental breakfast!"
the front desk was extremely helpful in resolving a rooming issue but the biggest surprise was the food and service at the continental breakfast! what a spread and a delightful hostess with above and beyond attention to detail!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location for Cal"
The walls are paper thing so if you get a loud guest(s) next to your room, you might have to call front desk to have them take care of it. The inside of the hotel is well kept. The continental breakfast is average for this quality of a hotel. The rooms were a little seedy (the bathrooms nicer), but they had balconies and were cleaned daily. The location […] is good if you need to be by the highway or if you need quick (10 minute) access to Cal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to UC Berkeley"
This hotel was very close to the college and easy access to highways, interstates. It wasn't great, but it also wasn't bad. I appreciated having free parking and breakfast included. More than adequate for a one night stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only if you must"
I would avoid this hotel if possible. The bed was passably clean and comfortable but that is where it ends. There was an overall feeling of uncleanliness and scum.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"3 light bulbs broken"
cheap hotel. 3 light bulbs broken. we asked them to fix but they said they couldn't. people smoking marijuana inside for countdown party but staff didn't take action to stop.Genuine Expedia guest review
"clos to everything"
had trouble with refrig in room..was not resolved. Otherwise stay was okGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Friendly staff, great breakfast selection and relaxing atmosphere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was clean and conveniently located by the Berkeley Marina for New Years Eve fireworks. The bed was very comfortable and the continental breakfast in the dining room was great compared to most that only offer cold food. The only thing that could use improvement is the size and quality of the TV in the room. Time to upgrade to flat screen!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for the Expedia price, ; I'd come back."
It is a good value: nice room, just not close to campus. No serious complaints, but a few nits. 1. The sink and bath have hot and cold sides reverse from what I expect. 2. The bathroom light has a motion detector that always turns on the light when I enter, and I DO NOT WANT that at night, when my eyes are adapted to the dark! 3. Foot traffic noise […] from room above was annoying. 4. Wi-Fi eventually worked but was quirky, and repeatedly asked me to log in. 5. Repeated train horns; there's a main route parallel to I-80, and close by. So I used ear plugs, but always bring them. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Room is Not Electronic friendly"
I did not like staying in a room that did not have enough 3 prong110V electrical plugs for all of our electronic devices. I had to borrow and extension cord from the front desk in order to operate the following: 2 laptops, 2 cell phone chargers 1 breathing machine and 1 iPad. All of the rooms need to be remodeled to bring them into the 21 century. If […] you stay here bring an extension cord and a power strip for all of your electronic stuff. My next stay in this area will be at the Holiday Inn Express up the street. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
First of all, I was there for 3 nights and every time i walked in the lobby it REEKED of MJ. I mean a "did I just miss someone taking a huge water pipe rip?" kind of reeked. I'll leave it for you to decide if that's a positive or not. (I keep getting flagged for "inappropriate " language, so I'm trying to be creative with my terminology.) Room was shabby, […] but passable and clean. It smelled heavily of cleaning products, which I guess is a good thing? Breakfast was typical; toast, coffee and juice, a DIY McMuffin station (perfectly round bacon and eggs), and the now ubiquitous Belgian Waffle machine. On my last morning there was a homeless guy trying to sneak breakfast, but the staff kicked him out pretty quickly. Parking was good and it looked like it was patrolled at night, just don't leave anything in your car. It is Berkeley after all. The location is good; close to the freeway and within walking distance to a few restaurants. Overall, it wasn't bad enough to leave, but I wouldn't stay again.

"a nice hotel with good services!"
it is a pet friendly hotel. Services are up to the standard. I would recommend it to friends as a nice budget hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Hotel but sketchy Wi-Fi"
I stayed at this hotel for a business trip. I stayed on the 3rd floor and the wi-fi quality was probably the worst I have ever experienced in a hotel. In their defense, the gentleman that checked me in warned me that the signal was weak there. In addition to the low wi-fi signal, the registration portal that you have to click your way into in order […] to access the internet kept dropping me so I had to keep logging in. This was probably a result of the poor wi-fi connection. Overall I am pleased with this hotel for the price paid and have already booked my next stay here. I will ask for a room on a lower floor or close to the router and I suggest you do the same if you will need wi-fi during our stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good choice for us"
A dated motel in some of the decor, but kept scrupulously clean and otherwise up to date. Newly renovated room very nice and very comfortable. We would stay there again. The location is close to the freeway and to the 4th Street stores and restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Had a great time"
Had a wonderful stay. Friendly staff and good breakfast. They were even kind enough to locate a left powercord for me and contact me so I could retrieve it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth staying here"
Very OLD place. Not recommended. There are better options available.Genuine Expedia guest review
Disgusting, filthy room....filthy chair - omg - how could that be left in the room - what is all over it? Disgusting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband loved the pillow (he's such a princess!), my kids loved the waffles at breakfast, and I would have loved a soda machine that carried Diet Pepsi!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall good stay, some minor issues"
The hotel was good overall, not great. When we first arrived there was a room blunder and we had to choose to share a king bed or have our double queen room that was a smoking room (we had reserved 2 queen non smoking). It was fine and we were switched to our regularly reserved room in the morning. The room needs some updating but was clean. There was […] a fridge and microwave but the room was pretty small. I was there on business and my friend was tagging along with me. The internet was spotty and I wasn't able to get much work done because things took a long time to load and the connection was dropped many times. I ended up heading to a cafe with free wifi one night so I could get some work done. The breakfast was great, very adequate. I would only stay there again if the wifi was guaranteed to work though. The neighborhood was a little rough and pretty far from most things in Berkeley unless you were driving (we were so it was fine). The De Afghan Kabob House down the street was really good, as was Cafe Yesterday! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean place to stay & to get back on the road"
The front desk staff did a wonderful job considering all the technical trouble of having booked online with Expedia in advance and some glitch that was unexpected. Just call and make the reservation directly to avoid stress upon arrival. Do remember to ask if there is a refrigerator in your room though if you expect one. We had to change rooms over […] that one missing item and do not assume there will be a freezer - there was not one in our unit. Even the manager on duty helped us on the road over the phone with directions from Oakland when we got lost. I would have to say that the free breakfast was absolutely better than what Best Western serves up. The front lot parking seems too far away from the front lobby when you have alot of bags and luggage to bring up to the elevator. I would suggest that customers use the back parking lot for loading/unloading the vehicle. The hallways are very hot from the sunshine of the day and that could use some improvement. Thanks for having us!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Everything was great. Breakfast had several hot choices, staff was friendly, room was clean, wifi worked great, a couple of fast food places close by and very close to Berkeley, easy access to san francisco. We stayed 4 days for a conference in San Francisco and it turned out great. The building is definitely older, but they have done a good job of […] decorating and making it appear older. Room is fabulously fashionable or anything, but nothing bad about it either. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was clean, very helpful friendly staff, excellent free breakfast, much more than the typical Continental breakfast.We just got back from Europe and this "2 star" hotel was nicer than several of the "4 Star" Hotels we stayed at in Europe. This place is really a 2.5 or 3 star hotel.It blows away Travelodges, Day's Inn's and Super 8's I have […] stayed at. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Not a bad Hotel at all. The Rooms are OK but could use new TV's. Staff is friendly and helpful. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Front desk service was excellet"
We arrived the hotel with no problem because of its location. We were greeted with a friendly clerk. checked-in promptly but found the room was a smoking room. The front desk made sure we get a non-smoking room by sending a helper to show us four available rooms to let us pick one from. More parking is available in the back of the hotel but visible […] from our room. The room is old but very clean. The beds are too soft for me. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
