"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.

This was perfect for us as a "base camp" for our San Francisco sight seeing trip. Close to the north Berkley BART station and downtown Berkeley. Clean rooms, nice breakfast, friendly staff and affordable rates. Will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very impressed. Great room and super breakfast. Wonderful staff. Definitely will stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice quiet location"
Friendly staff. We had a clean and comfortable room. Will stay again when we visit San Francisco a great value, saving half the cost of the cities high hotel cost. 15 min walk to the BART system.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The stay was close to Berkeley campus. Rooms were vey clean and neat. Rate was very competitive with other hotels. Staff was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Shower in our room was clogged with hair. Sink handle unattached. My fiance couldn't take a shower and we requested a refund. Surrounding neighborhood was scary.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
"Fair for the price"
For the amount the room cost, would have expected a lot more. Had to ask twice just to get extra coffee for the room,breakfast was not good at all. Wouldn't spend my money there againGenuine Expedia guest review
""Free" wifi internet did not work inside the room"
Internet works in the lobby but it did not work in our room because the signal was very low. Called the front desk and filed a ticket but no use. Ended up working in the lobby during the stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Shabby hotel, scruffy, in need of maintenance. Staff were friendly enough. The whole atmosphere was lackluster and neglectful. The worst thing about this hotel is that the walls are paper thin. I could hear the occupant of the next room talking as if they were in bed with me. That was utterly obnoxious. That single fact stops me ever going to this hotel […] again. Yuk.

"Nice hotel close to the freeway exit"
We had a very restful night and the breakfast had something for everyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
Large, comfortable, well appointed room. Convenient to downtown Berkeley and to Freeway if driving. Neighborhood has up-scaled enormously over the years. Great service! The bathroom light blew out during the evening, but they showed up to fix it in five minutes..The server in the breakfast room is a local character who loudly greets you when you arrive. […] Altogether pleasant stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Berkeley Parent Rest Stop"
The hotel is close enough to UC Berkeley and made it a perfect place to stay while we got our student moved in!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel for the price."
Decent hotel, convenient parking, close to UC campus. Beds were ok a bit too soft. Coffee in the morning was horrible. All in all it was a pleasant stay. I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Descent Spot in Berkeley"
My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights while we attended an event in SF. This hotel met our needs, as all we cared about was a clean and afforable room near a Bart station. They don't charge extra for parking and because its near UC Berkeley, there are yummy late night dinner options close by like Top Dog and Thai BBQ.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"a problem with the service"
We had to call 3 times to have the toilet draining : we called the first time at 6:30 PM and received the service only at bed time . A case of poor service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for Families"
I went to Berkeley and stayed in this hotel with my grown up kids and grandkids. We stayed in rooms right across the hall from each other. Although some of the rooms have two double beds, we called early to request rooms with queen-sized beds, and they obliged us, at no extra cost. The breakfast had enough variety to please everyone, kids and adults […] alike, including eggs, sausage, waffles, etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was good over all experiance the staff was very nice to us we checked in and our room was nice and clean we went to San Francisco for the Niner game so we just stayed for the night. In the morning we had breakfast which was also good the lady that was there had everything stocked up for being by herself and all the people that were there eating breakfast […] good job to her!! The only thing which was not that big off a deal was the ironing board was broken we had to iron on the bed other than that it was good Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The only good thing is free breakfast. The room has old carpet and urine smell in the room... Location is good, close to UC Berkeley.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything we wanted"
All I want in a hotel is clean, comfortable and quiet. This hotel did all of that and also has a GREAT morning breakfast (more than the usual stale donuts from Costco that most hotels do!) and in an interesting location. Lots of little Indian shops nearby and the best coffeehouse in town is right around the corner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The breakfast lady was so incredibly cheerful! "Good morning, waffles are ready" when we came in and "Have a nice day, see you tomorrow" as we left. She was the best thing in the morning. My only small gripe is that they did not have pillows that weren't down feathers. I'm slightly allergic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Freight trains can be heard passing by and blowing their whistles all night long. Impossible to sleep. Manager made no effort to be present to listen to the complaint.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Service was great. The one thing I might say as a negative are the carpets. They probably need to be replaced for the bad smell. Other than that it was a great dealGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We left some luggage in our room. When I called they were in no hurry to find and said it would be an hour to track it down. They never called back. And now we don't know that we'll ever see it again. There were no ramps to get to our room so we had to lift our luggage cart which was full of luggage. Luckily a fellow traveler offered to help. There […] seemed to be only one wheelchair accessible room. The shower switched from hot to cold randomly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel in a convenient location"
I was pleased with my stay at the La Quinta Berkeley. My wife, my two children, and I stayed there for two nights, and it worked out very well. The location of the hotel in Berkeley was convenient to visit the University. Although it wasn't close enough to walk there, it was a short drive. It was very nice to have access to the Business Center, where […] we were able to print out our boarding passes for no extra charge for our upcoming flight home. Although we didn't need to use it, there is an onsite laundry facility that is convenient. The quality and level of service provided was just fine, and the price was reasonable.

"Very near the University of Berkeley"
Very upset about the floor noise from the floor above (wood sound like when people walked). It appears like there is no provision for noise in between floors. Unable to get a good night sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old hotel rooms that had been redone. Clean."
OK. The exercise equipment was lacking. OK room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap, convenient to transportation and marina"
My room was clean, though the bathroom could have used an extra once-over, each day. The sheets were very nice and soft however. By the end of the weekend, the hotel seemed terribly under-staffed. The common area bathrooms were a mess most of the weekend, without t.p., and dirty. But the staff that was working were very nice and courteous. The hotel […] is inexpensive the room clean enough. It's good for a tight budget. Breakfast consisted of lots of fat and sugar, some fresh fruit. Because the room has a mini-fridge, I could stock up on fresh fruit, beverages, and snacks that I like from the local market. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Decent hotel but noisy from the traffic on the street out front.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Only Because I Travel with Dogs"
This is an ok hotel and suitable if you are traveling with your dog. It's not dirty, just small and feels outdated. The rooms are very tight on space unless you ask for a King Size bed. The hotel staff is not the most professional. The housekeeping staff is always hanging about and speaking loudly to each other. There is only one elevator and it is […] small and the housekeeping staff monopolizes it most of the day transporting their trollies and large bins of laundry. These are activities that should go unnoticed to a guest and makes the hotel feel 'cheap' and intrusive to your stay. The front desk clerks tend to 'disappear' leaving the front desk unmanned. I waited 15 minutes for the clerk to show up on June 28th around 11:30 and when she did she came out of the kitchen with food on a plate. Very unprofessional. Makes me feel like I am staying at a friends' house but not in a good way. I know this isn't supposed to be a luxury hotel but a little manners go a long way to making one feel they have invested in quality. This is the second time I have stayed here and when I do not travel with my dogs I NEVER stay here. The experience just isn't one of 'vacation' I feel like I am in the way of the cleaning staff and bothering the front desk clerks to do their jobs :(. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient, clean, but a bit disappointed"
The Hotel was nicely kept. No complaints about cleanliness, or staff. Both were great. Continental breakfast wonderful...However, we normally don't pay more than $100 for a hotel room, and we paid $150 for this one and the BEDS were terrible. We had a 2 double bed room..both beds sunk in the middle...my husband and I were so uncomfortable and didn't […] get a good nights sleep at all....very disappointed for the cost of the room!!!!

"To close to railroad tracks, don't expect to sleep"
Paid way to much for this room. Exhaust fan in bathroom didn't work and shower nob was damaged. Shower water would change from hot to cold and then back to very hot. The noise from the trains, garbage truck and the pluming in the walls were so loud we couldn't sleep past 6am. Wish I could have my money back. Bet you don't post this!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a great one night stay. Only one thing needed to be fixed is the Toilet bowl. It wasn't flushing right. ThanksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
