"Probably will not be here again"
The neighborhood was creepy and the desk staff was rude. The room was great and clean but it was too far out from the city and I didn't feel comfortable leaving my car in the parking lot over night.

"Close to public transit and freeway."
Comfortable bed. Laundry and elevator were both out of order. Continental breakfast was adequate. Free parking was a bonus especially in San Francisco. Overall good value for what we paid. The BART was only a few blocks away. We were able to take the first train out at 4:20am to get to Pier 33 to secure tickets to see Alcatraz Island.

"This is a nice Motel."
My room was clean and decorated nicely, the staff was nice and helpful. I did not have my cell phone wire to charge my cell phone and they were able to provide me with one to use. I was grateful for that as I truly needed a certain size plug-in for my cell phone. I also needed assistance for a taxi and they called one for me. I would recommend this motel.

"OK if you can stand chemical cleaner smell."
Pros: secure layout, coffee OK, breakfast room had lots of space and was on second floor, elevator to get stuff upstairs, firm mattress, easy to operate alarm clock radio. Cons: Most places where I have stayed in this price range have had some kind of cleaner smell, but this one was overwhelming, both in the common areas and in the room. I did acclimate to it and couldn't notice it after 10 or so minutes, but after going outside, it hit me again. Not enough outlets near the bed. I need to use a sleep apnea machine which plugs in. I also bring my own high sound quality radio to listen to as I fall asleep. The only duplex outlet by the bed was filled with the lamp and the clock radio plugs. The lamp had an outlet in the base, which I used for my sleep apnea machine so I was one outlet short. I had to plug in the radio opposite to the foot of the bed, and was worried that the extra volume might bother neighbors. Desk chair provided tipped backwards very easily and I had to perch carefully to keep from falling backwards. Air conditioner/heater instructions were worn off and it was difficult to figure out how to turn on the air conditioner.

"Lacking basic amenities - even for a two-star hote"
While the front desk staff are nice, certain amenities I have come to expect in every class of hotel were lacking. Specifically, there was shampoo but no conditioner. Weird. The beds were some of the least comfortable I have had in a hotel - course sheets and flattened pillows. The internet was intermittent at best. They clearly have very little bandwidth to share. The room was clean, though.

"Cheap decent hotel"
It was a typical super 8. Had the 2 star hotel smell. Yet room was pretty clean and the bed was decent. The hotel building itself felt a bit old but it was alright. One negative thing about this hotel would be the sign in front of the hotel. The sign said, some material used in this hotel contains a substance that is known to cause cancer or birth defect. The sign seemed to be from California government and not sure how strict the criteria for one building to get the sign. (I am from out of CA) But I felt very uncomfortable staying at the hotel once I see the sign, since I was travelling with my pregnant wife.

"Comfortable rooms, nice firm queen beds"
Comfortable stay at a very convenient location. Very happy with the firm beds (my husband slept better here than at an upscale Hilton hotel in SF city), although the pillow cases were a little scratchy. Next to the I-80 entrance and a 5 minute walk to the Del Norte BART station, Safeway, gas station and restaurants. Our boys loved the waffles for the continental breakfast. We used to live in a nice apartment 3 blocks away. Ii like the fact that it's close to Berkeley and a 45 minute drive to SF in a pretty safe location. Across the highway overpass are well-tended homes.

"Freeway and BART Train location"
Per those that stood there, it went well and front desk was accomodating. I booked a band to stay there, as to location of event they were performing at. All in all were satisfied. Will keep this location in mind for visitors and or overnight business needs / stays. BART to San Francisco was additional convenience and not hassle with the traffic. Just 2 plus blocks to train station. Some eateries nearby hotel as well.

"An Excellent Choice In East Bay"
We wanted a place that was within walking distance of a BART Station so we could train into San Francisco for a MLB Giants Game. This worked out perfectly. We stayed at the Super 8 Tuesday Night, and walked to the BART Station Wednesday Morning. The hotel had no problem with us leaving our car there until Wednesday Evening when we drove home after the game. The management was very accommodating in every respect.

"Best Super 8"
I usually hesitate before staying at Super 8's because they are inconsistent; however this location was just what we needed. It was the best decision. Great service, comfortable modern room. We did notice a needed repair in the room and just mentioned it at the desk. When we came back that night - it had been repaired. We didn't see what breakfast looked like, but with a fridge in the room we didn't need it. If we ever return to the area we will definitely stay there again!.

"SAN FRAN FUN"
We only stayed one night in this hotel. It was lovely. Check in was quick and easy. The gentlemen at the front desk welcomed us. Our room was clean. The place looked completely remodeled and modern. And I stayed at a super 8 the nights before, so I had something to compare it to. The neighborhood was a bit eerie, but all we needed was the park and ride BART station which was conveniently located a few blocks away. The only thing was that our room did not get cleaned even after we had indicated that we wanted a cleaning by flipping the door knob sign. Breakfast was pleasant as it was in a separate room and it had variety. The woman at the desk the day of check out was friendly as well.

Rooms are well decorated and has new modern furnishing with large LED tv. I stayed there for 5 days and didnt eat breakfast there so I wouldnt be able to comment on it. However the service could be alot better. The manager was not welcoming, friendly or talkative like people in hotel management business should be. He would only nod to give any answers. I think if they get the front desk staff to be more cheerful and friendly they would be the finest motel 8 I've ever been to.

"Basic lodging."
This is basic lodging for short duration (1 to 2) nights stay. My room was clean and well maintained. Bedding (sheets, blanket & cover) & towels were freshly laundered. I was offered free internet access, a large flat screen TV and free local cable channel programing. Traffic noise was minimal even though the building is 150 feet from the I-80 Fwy. Reasonable food choices are within a short drive & staff was well informed to give directions. I would consider staying at this site again should I need to return to the Berkeley area for business.

"Comfortable and cheap"
We stayed here two nights. Both check-in and check-out were quick and simple, and the staff was friendly. This is probably the cleanest Super 8 I've ever stayed at - the bedroom and bathroom were spotless, and the shower was really nice. We stayed in a room with two queen beds, with a window that faced the adjacent building. The room was quiet - no noise from outside even though there is a highway and a busy local street nearby. The beds were not the softest I've stayed in, but I had no problems falling asleep either night. Other amenities included flat screen tv, free wifi and breakfast, a little reading nook with a sofa, heat lamp in the bathroom. The third floor was entirely smoke-free. Especially for the price (~ $90/night on a weekend), this was a super deal. Both BART (El Cerrito del Norte stop) and the bus (AC Transit) system are within a two block walk, which was convenient because BART was on strike during our stay. Hotels in Berkeley were more than twice the cost and you get a lot less - for example, the rooms at the Berkeley Super 8 are half the size and not nearly as nice. Save your money and take public transit from this hotel rather than staying in Berkeley (it's just two BART stops away). We had only one small problem - the bathroom fan stopped working. However, the front desk attendant came up right away and fixed the problem within ten minutes. Great job!

"In comparison to Travelodge Berkeley"
I was quite surprised with my 2 (queen) bed room @ this hotel. I'm a bit of a snob elitist when it comes to hotels. I pre-judged this hotel coz' of the Super 8 name. But I was TOTALLY wrong. First off, it's an easy access off the freeway which was definitely a plus since I have to drive to UC Berkeley the whole weekend. The rooms are spacious enough & clean. The bed was firm & had a pleasant sleep. The walls are a bit thin but other than that, I would definitely book this hotel again, for certain. Also, the continental breakfast was pretty good. Overall, I would say that it's not bad @ all.
