"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
"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
We had a nice stay, very satisfied with the hotel, no surprises.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Business stay"
I was working nearby. Nice place to stay. Clean. Food within walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com 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
"Avoid this property"
Tired, old, and unwelcoming, especially after a 12 hour drive. Never againGenuine Expedia 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.

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
