Staff very friendly and.courteous. I would stay here again and refer to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Generally it's ok, but the room is too old, toilet water can't flush very well, have to flush many times once you used it. Plus, the bath towel is not very clean, and only give 2 pieces for 4 people, even you ask them, still just gave one more. The price is high.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel near but not in San Francisco"
The hotel was nice but the location and parking take away from the building. We had problems with the shower and couldn't get it to be anything but steaming hot. However my biggest complaint was that twice we had a member of the hotel staff knock and then immediately open the door to the room during hours of the day when there shouldn't have been cleaning […] done.

"Good location, clean & comfortable"
Hotel front desk staff was not helpful/attentive, the services can be better.Genuine Expedia guest review
great stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Twice we requested towels and never received, one night they said they were out of towels, the next night they never came around to bring them. The doors to our hotel room would not close all the way unless you pulled & slammed it shut, we did not feel safe.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed 2 nights, would come back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Reasonable hotel for UCB visits"
The La Quinta Hotel on University avenue was all right.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Evening arrival "scary" in parking lot"
For an older hotel - quite clean and good service. The surrounding area was a bit "seedy" upon our evening arrival - loud, noisy, occupants on weekend. During the week - quiet and nice. We would stay again - now that we know it is "safe".Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a very nice hotel. We didn't have any problem.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"La Quinta, epic FAIL! 3 stars my butt..."
Terrible choice. Good location but lousy service. Front desk help barely understood English. He had to look back and forth to copy each letter of my address from my CDL to enter it into computer. The air inside entire motel had so much deodorant/air freshener in it (think flowery used cat litter smell) that my eyes continually burned. We left the sliding […] door to the balcony open and the vent fan in the bathroom on all night and it made no difference. No soap in bathroom so I went to front desk only to be told repeatedly (in broken English) "We have no soap today." Seriously...he couldn't call a maid to find some in an unused room (motel was lightly booked and I can see why) or even call the Manager to go buy some? No, just stand there and repeat "We have no soap today". I guess that Expedia's idea of a three star rating is different than mine. I would expect soap in the bathroom even at a one star hotel.

The woman who checked us in seemed completely clueless about how to do her job, I thought she may have been on some kind of anti depressant or something, she was out of it. The room smelled heavily of cleaning solution when we got there, we needed to open a window to get rid of the smell. The beds were comfortable but the walls are paper thin, I was […] up most of the night listening to the man in the room next to us snoring loudly, doors slamming in other rooms, people walking in the room above, etc. The breakfast was decent but the woman making waffles yelled in my face telling me my waffle was ready. At 7:00 am it was disconcerting, I needed some quiet. I had to tell her twice that I didn't want a waffle. Other than that, for the price, the hotel was ok. I don't think I would stay there next time I'm in Berkeley. It would be worth it spend a little more money on a better hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I will be staying here every time I visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had two connecting rooms over a very busy weekend. The breakfast was a great start, more extensive than the usual waffle maker and cold cereal. Service was friendly and helpful, beds were comfortable. The pool isn't heated, but other than that, a very successful stay at decent rates.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice for families with small children!"
Pros: • 15 min to San Francisco • 40 min to Napa • Free breakfast ($40 in daily savings daily for a family of 5) • Fridge and microwave- Great for keeping fresh produce for the kids to snack on • Target is 5 minutes away (moms with little ones will appreciate this info) • If your kids get loud (like mine), no one seems to get bothered or upset • Easy […] parking • Walking distance to Berkeley marina shops • Walking distance to sandwich shops • Nice housekeeping staff. Kind and sweet • Fast/easy check in and out Cons: • Sometimes it seemed loud • If you stay on a weekend there may be a large party and parking seems to get tight • Staff in the front desk is somewhat dry. Not unhelpful, but some seem upset or harried even when no one is waiting on line Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very welcoming the rooms were spot on clean nice serviceGenuine Expedia guest review
"convenient but not great"
Overall, not an amazing place to stay but fine if you need someplace in central Berkley that's not too far from the Berkley campus. Thought the price was a bit steep given the overall quality of the rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I'm lost for words! Just disgusting!"
Truly the worse hotel I've ever stayed at. A rundown dump! Didn't sleep at all. Just horrible!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice staff, questionable guests"
The guests in adjoining rooms were loud and obnoxious. The building seems quite old, and you can hear your neighbors pretty clearly through the thin walls. This is not the kind of place you'd brag about. Pluses include plenty of available parking in back, and pleasant hotel staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stayed only 1 night..."
We were in the area to explore the local university. The room was clean, and the property was convenient to the university. The continental breakfast was better than expected at this price point. Room was noisy and small, and check in staff wasn't helpful. Neighborhood was grungy and didn't have many food options...left a night early and headed to our […] next university stop.

Bad and bad. Probably just the room, bad mildew odor, like maybe it flooded recently. Computer problems at front desk, room key didn't work and then the smell. I won't stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
". very nice day"
me and the family spent 5 days at the hotel .very good service. the free breakfast was very good. me and the family would definitely be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a nice stay, very satisfied with the hotel, no surprises.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It took too long to check in only one person on duty. When we got to the room there was no shower curtain. Because it was late we didn't say anything that night. The parking lot didn't feel safe. The backdoor didn't require the room key to get in. When we checked out the next day I told the front desk we didn't have a shower curtain and dind't want […] to be charged for one since it wasn't in the room. The peorson said, "How many days haven't you had one?" I thought this was an odd question, I said only one sinsce we only stayed overnight. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant hotel...very comfortable!"
Check-in was easy. Polite front desk staff. Comfortable beds and very clean! The morning breakfast was great...and it was included in your stay. Definitely would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Unprofessional staff stole from me"
The free breakfast was great, but I will never stay here again. Here's why: 1) My staff behind the desk while I was checkin in were not dressed professionally and were joking about accidentally having walked into someone's room while they were sleeping. 2) The towels in my room had lipstick stains on them. 3) The hotel staff stole expensive make […] up and perfume from me and only admitted it when I told them I would call the manager. 4) The fitness facility that is advertised is more like a treadmill in a closet. Not only that but the treadmill was out of order. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"For the price, nice."
We knew we would be getting in late and up early to catch a plane at SFO. We would not be "hanging out" in the room or the Inn. However, I was still hesitant due to the 2.8 star rating on yelp and I am usually picky. Reading thru the reviews I had a pretty clear picture of what we would be getting and decided, for our needs, it would be fine. So, here […] we go: There were two employees on the night shift and one was in training. She was very nervous and clueless. The check in took a long time. She didn't even know that La Quinta had an additional parking lot behind the hotel so we ended up parking on the street. We found out the next day from the morning crew who were especially helpful and friendly. The room was clean and pleasant. My husband thought the beds were very uncomfortable. I would say they were okay. I slept thru the night without interruption. Plenty of hot water and the tub drained properly when taking a shower. (this always seems to be a problem at cheaper hotels-you end up standing in 3 to 6 inches of water). The continental breakfast was served in a bright, clean room with an animated, cheerful employee. They offered fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, waffles, english muffins, eggs and bacon (which I don't eat since I know where they come from) and coffee that actually tasted good. Not bad for free. So, all in all, our experience was good. This is a strong 2.5 to 3 star motel for those who just need an inexpensive, clean, safe place to sleep. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Business stay"
I was working nearby. Nice place to stay. Clean. Food within walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for the rate."
I needed a room to overnight in after dropping my daughter at Berkeley and before the long drive home. Before I chose places within walking distance to her dorm, but found I had used the car anyway, so it didn't matter if I was several blocks further away. This hotel was more spacious than the cramped expensive crackerbox places I had put up with before. […] There was an old fashioned feel to it, a little bit dated, but not unpleasant for that. My room was big and comfortable and squeaky clean. I didn't take advantage of the breakfast but it didn't look as healthy as I would have liked, though it offered way more choice than the place we stayed last time, which was literally donuts or cereal. All in all fantastic for the price! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very friendly staff"
This hotel was very nice, friendly staff. My husband and i stayed there NYE for our annivarsary. The first room we got did not have the bed made yet so they gladly changed our room. The breakfast set up was good, lots of options :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was clean only found one beer cap from previous tenant missing 1 face towel but it was quite and breakfast was goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
and you'll be satisfied. The rate is moderate, so you're going to have to compromise. The area around the hotel is only so-so. I wouldn't want to go for a night-time stroll. While the hotel was clean, it seemed somewhat cobbled together, with lots of added trim to hide sprinkler systems, etc. The fitness center was not working during our stay. Breakfast […] was fine - the hostess was very friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Staff did not care"
Our recent stay was unfortunately not a pleasant one. We checked in on Friday and went to a coaching seminar. When we returned that evening approximately 8pm there were at least 20 kids between the ages of 10-14 running through the halls, jumping down the stairs, jumping over the wet floor signs in the lobby and running all over the first and second […] floor. I immediately went to the front desk and asked how long this was going to be allowed to occur. The staff informed me that the quiet time was 10pm. I informed her that was not acceptable. I had a presentation to prepare along with 4 other guests who were staying here and wanted to sit in the lobby and prepare our papers. I then asked if we could sit in the kitchen area and she said no! She said there was another sitting area upstairs, however the kids were running all over there as well. I was extremely disappointed in the hotel staff. They lost other customers, who checked in and turned around and checked out do to the noise and kids running all over.) Saw this while sitting in the lobby trying to study. At 11:00pm kids were still roaming the halls making noise and staff did not seem to care. Finally at midnight I looked out of my door and saw the kids were finally in their rooms. It was apparent to me that the staff cared more about a group of kids there on a religious retreat than other paying customers. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"La Quinta Berkeley"
I'd stay here again; the room was clean as was the bed (though there was a strong bleach odor in the room), which is certainly preferable to musty or smoke-filled...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best hotel for dogs!!"
This was such a great hotel to stay at with your dog. We have a 60 lb German Shepherd, and they didn't charge us anything for keeping her in our hotel with us. The staff was very very friendly, especially the lady who runs the breakfast every morning. She definitely put a smile on our faces! I would definitely go back if I were to visit Berkeley again […] with or without my dog. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean room. Near campus, downtown, and BART."
Overall, a good experience. The room was very clean and the beds were comfy. Located within 2 miles of UC Berkeley Campus and Downtown Berkeley. Also, it was about a 10 min walk to the BART station. The cost is under $8.00 to take the BART to San Fran round trip. The staff were nice and they offered a continental breakfast which I never woke up in time […] for.

"Honeymoon not so sweat!!"
I was displeased with the maintenance of our room. My new husband and I were on our honeymoon, so we thought that this was be a nice place to stay. I was familiar with this brand of hotel and it was close to the places we would be going. First off our toilet had a leak and water ran onto the floor, also the toilet would run all night so my husband had […] to take the top off the back f the toilet to stop the running. Secondly, the shower curtain had holes in it. We spoke with someone at the front desk and we were told that there wasn't a maintenance person on staff that day. That we would have to move rooms, but with all of our plans for our honeymoon we did not have time to make the move. Thirdly we had to ask for more towels because only one hand towel is provided in the room. We had booked the room for two people?. To be honest I felt that we could have stayed at a cheaper hotel and gotten the same thing. I was very disappointed that the staff never offer any kind of compensation. The hotel lobby area was nice and clean. Not sure if I'll use La Quinta again. I hope to hear from someone, and maybe that will change my mind. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient Berkeley Location"
We frequently stay at the Berkeley LaQuinta. It is convenient to favorite restaurants and meeting locations for us. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. A plus is windows that open. Rooms include breakfast that has a good variety of food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sleepless in Berkeley"
The first night my assigned room was facing a major traffic artery with trucks and cars clattering by all night . On top of that a train on a main line went by about every half hour with engines and cars blazing. I got absolutely no sleep the entire night. I reported to the front desk in the morning that (1) I wished to change rooms to the other side […] of the building, and (2) I wanted my room discounted for the night before. Since I was going to be out for the day, I moved all my luggage to the car, expecting to pick up new room keys upon my return. The manager agreed to change my room and gave me my new room assignment, but not keys. Also she gave me a 10% discount on the previous night's room, wholly inadequate in my opinion, I would have comped the room for good customer relations. When I returned in the evening, shlepping my luggage again, the front desk had no room for me, telling me I had "checked out." After 45 minutes they finally came up with a room. In the meantime the take-out food I had purchased for my dinner was stone cold by the time I got my new room assignment. Speaking of food, the "free breakfast" offered was totally inedible.

"Older, but adequate"
We chose this hotel for its location, and didn't expect a lot of luxury, but room was clean and comfortable and staff pleasant. Breakfast a little disappointing -- coffee particularly came from a large machine and was scalding and bad-tasting, but generally everything else OK.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Really nice hotel great location"
Enjoyed the hotel it was in a great location with a great deal of parking The only issue is the coffee LaQuinta has terrible coffee all locations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Safe and Clean"
Adequate in pretty much every way. I needed a place close to Emeryville, (which was pretty booked up the week of my stay), but this hotel is very close to a few convenient bus lines. Also within walking distance (maybe 20 mins) of BART North Berkeley station. Area is ok; safe enough but not very interesting; cool parts of Berkeley are within walking […] distance. Grocery store about 3 blocks away. Room was very clean and had a microwave and fridge. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
