"Close to sights, freeway, other transportaion"
Second visit to this facility. Several improvements have been made. We liked the location and overall comfort of the beds, bathroom set up, and cordial treatment by management.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The negative thing I have to say is on the very strong smell in the smoking room; My mother is a smoker but she had to have me get a can of room freshner because it was very rank; otherwise, evrything else was fine. Maybe you could try to open windows if possible between guests to try and eliminate the stinch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Another great experience - El Cerrito CA Super 8"
This was the third time that we have stayed at the El Cerrito Super 8, and this stay was another positive experience. The location is good and the motel is in good condition with a friendly and efficient staff. There isn't a great scenic view from the motel, but I typically don't go to motels for the view - I'm there for a clean, quiet place to sleep […] and shower; and this motel has that (guests all seem to be quiet all 5 nights including the Memorial Day Holiday). It's nice that the rooms have both a microwave and refrigerator, and wonderfully free and great internet service. I reccomend the El Cerrito Super 8, as a nice place to stay at a resonable price - I would reccomend it to my friends and family if they were to travel to the area.

"Obviously always working"
This was my second stay at this hotel- I had originally stayed in a smoking queen room a year ago. This year, I had a non-smoking king. The lobby had been remodeled, and my room was large, clean, and comfortable. The drawers, fridge, and tub were clean, smell-free, and usable. I loved having a fridge and microwave in my room, and there is a shopping […] center and easy public transportation access within 2 blocks. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Easy to get to, clean and reasonably priced."
This hotel is well located for easy off/on I 80. Easy access to Berkeley and the city. Close to shoppoIng, restaurants, BART. Had a view of a junk yard but didn't feel unsafe. Nice check in staff was very helpful. Breakfast was simple but sufficient to get on the road early. Clean room and great price. Quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review

could not get non smoking room last minute! pro: cheap rates, free breakfast, microwave, mini fridge, free parking, close to freeway and Berkeley. convenient, practical. cons: stinky smoky room, too close to freeway.neighborhood doesn't look pleasant, safe or conducive to relaxation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for couples."
My wife and I always stay in this hotel. If you plan to go to Richmond/Berkeley this hotel is the right one for you. Front manager desk Mr. Burathoki does an awesome job. Highly recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
hotel was goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I thought i swore off super 8s but this one was great they even accomodated late stay and wifi worked great too It was updated and much cleaner than last horrid experience at super 8 in albuquerqueGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for our budget!"
This was a great hotel. We will use it again if we are ever back in the area. We flew into town to watch a sports event at UC Berkley. It was an easy drive to to sports arena. It was right off the expressway. Great price. It is an older hotel but has all been redone and is very clean. Would recommend to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel but shower water is lukewarm Horrible in cold weather...told management to turn up the water heater but they didn't.Cold breakfast room with bowls and cups that melt in the microwave...Cant heat up anything..dont know why they have a microwave with utensils that you can't use. Tried to make oats in the morning. All I got was a melted bowl […] with uncooked oats oozing all over the plate...and a line waiting behind me Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Customer service not the greatest."
I've never stayed in a Super 8 before and I was a little apprehensive about it but it was the only thing available last minute and I saw really good reviews. So I took the chance and tried it out. The Asian guy at the front desk, which I believe is the hotel manager was not friendly at all. I came in to check in like around 11 am and you would think […] he would say "Hello, good morning. How are you?" (you know the formalities) but he waited till I said hi and he didn't even acknowledge it. He asked for my name, gave me a form to sign and that's it. Talk about customer service. Other than that, the hotel room was clean and spacious. I was hardly there and just went there to take a shower and sleep. So if you're looking for that, then go right ahead. It's a good place for a good price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quality for the price"
The rooms were clean, newly refurbished, comfortable and located to a near a BART station for ease of access to the city without having to fight the Bay Area traffic by car. Half the price of most hotels in downtown San Francisco.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient location, good price"
Hotel was a good value for the price. Room was clean, newly furnished and convenient for our trip. Breakfast offered was good as well. This hotel is located near 80, so it's a little noisy when the windows are open. I would stay at this hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"clean, quiet but needs plumbing fix"
need to fix water leak dripping through bathroom ceiling when folks use shower directly above...don't use room until leak is fixed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice enough, but bad service"
The people at the front desk were really unfriendly, which kind of ruined it for me. The actual town of El Cerrito is kind of scary and i wouldn't stay there again. Rooms are very dark, but updated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great while visiting UC Berkeley..."
This was a great option for our family while we were visiting our son at UC Berkeley. The price was great and the location was not too far from the school. Other hotels are closer to the school, but the price was so much lower that it was worth it to us to drive a few exits down the freeway. We stayed closer last time but paid three times as much! Not […] worth it to me... I was pleasantly surprised at he comfort and cleanliness of the hotel. The beds were some of the most comfortable beds my husband and I have ever slept in at a hotel.

"Nice rooms & great location for rapid transit use"
The outside could use some paint & fix up- but room interiors are brand new- very nice. Looks like tub is new also.Genuine Expedia guest review
WARNING!This is a horrible place to stay! When i checked in,i was told that the room was ready but we would have to wait for towels! My mom and i were celebrating her 50th birthday at a concert, after a 4 hour car drive we wanted to shower and freshen up before we went out for the night. We waited for towels.... They never came. When i inquired,i was […] told that the towels were not done yet.The next morning i again asked for towels.... I was given ONE TOWEL! He told me i would have to wait a while if i wanted more. to top off the lame room, poor service and lack of towels, the motel is located in a bad part of town. I woke up to a flat tier.... Probably ran over someones crack pipe or something Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel: clean and safe, well managed"
I had to stay at multiple hotels along my most recent trip, and I'm glad that this is the one where I had to stay longest. Clean room, plenty of space, safe area. Had plenty of power outlets accessible, a clean fridge, convenient desk, as well as a couch. The location was sometimes annoying to get to, just with all the divided roads and stoplights nearby, […] but the area felt safe. Near a Denny's, Safeway, and Walgreens. The wi-fi was fast and the complimentary breakfast was decent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basics and cleanliness were all good"
Noise from other guests, slamming doors, etc was a problem; When passing hotel workers, managers, etc in hall, no one said hello or tried to be pleasantGenuine Expedia guest review
Pleasant stay. Did not have a lot of contact with personnel. Desk clerk was not visible except when checking in. Housekeepers were friendly and waited until we were out of the room to clean iup.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was clean and very convenient and practical. The lobby was smelly of cigarettes and the front desk clerk was annoyed at having to service us. For the price, the room was practical and tolerable..Too bad that the front desk and the lobby is the first impression given and these were the ones that needed the most attention.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Such an excellent place"
If you want a clean, affordable, convenient, friendly place to stay in the Bay Area this is the place. It is not a luxury hotel, but I am not a high roller. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly. Located right by BART and I-80 getting around is so convenient. There is also a Safeway right across the street and rooms have microwaves […] and refrigerators so the budget traveler can eat simple meals in the room. There is a pretty decent free breakfast in the morning so it's very easy to keep spending on food within reason. I travel to the Bay Area several times a year and always book at this hotel. I cannot recommend it highly enough. An excellent home base for visits to this beautiful region. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to san francisco"
good, easy to find, clean room, comfortable, nice bathroom, continental breakfast good, usual coffee, rolls, fruit. They started breakfast 15 minutes late, at 6:15 am not at 6 am. We had a time crunch to meet in SF at 7:30 and find parking. But we were able to make our destination.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"good without overdoing it with the budget"
Very clean and well decorated. Good free breakfast and coffee. Probably the best hotel of this "tier" that I've been tooGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very good value"
Plain but clean. Very basic breakfast but the no complaints since it's included in the room. Good free wifi. Comfortable bed. Towels a bit skimpy. Easy access to I80. Not the nicest scenery on the north side of the motel - unless you like a decrepit ~56 Cadillac and '54 Buick in the building lot next door. Overall, it's a very good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Probably not return"
Not a very clean place. Carpets could be changed everywhere. Bathroom was clean. Old TV but not a big deal. Best,firmest bed of any hotel I have visited.That impressed me. Basic accommodation. No newspaper in the door front,as advertised,not a big deal for me since internet was fast enough to catch up on news. I slept with my clothes on both nights […] cause I was not comfortable with cleanliness level,specially carpets. Area not the best. Witnessed a "working woman" bring/come with a John on Friday night for a stay/service. That raised my concern on cleanliness if you know what I mean. Would be worth 30-50 bucks a night elsewhere. Breakfast was VERY basic. Coffee(cheap kind),prepackaged cinnamon roll(ok-fresh off freezer), and waffles and toast and serial. It worked ok. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super 8 El Cerrito"
The rooms were very nice, spacious, and clean. No complaints. For the price, I would go there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed my stay here. I chose Super 8 because I have never had a bad experience with that company and that didn't change with this stay either. When I got there, there was no one at the front desk and I had to call and it rang about 10 times before someone answered but the guy came right out and checked me in. The area around the motel is a little […] shady - I had a view of a wall filled with grafitti and some rusted, run-down cars from my room - but overall it was safe. The room was very clean and their towels were GREAT - none of those super thin ones at usual hotels. I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great experience. It is very easy to the freeway and San Francisco.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good value for money. Maids kept the room very clean. Beds were comfortable. Other than the free breakfast (which is mostly cereal and pastries) the hotel has almost no amenities. Very close to a Carrows and a Dennys, though. Location is good, walking distance to a BART station, but the neighborhood itself isn't great. TV did not work much - think the […] remote needed new batteries, which we reported. Of the two outlets behind the TV, only one worked, so we had to unplug either the TV or the desk lamp, depending on which one we wanted to use. Microwave and fridge in room were very helpful, ditto ironing board, iron and hairdryer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Very clean, not bad for a Circle 8, front doors are lock after 10pm. If looking for someplace quick this is good for a night not for a weekGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel not Great employees"
The rooms were recently renovated and clean. Very nice for a Super 8 in a pretty good area with a few diners and supermarket nearby. The front desk people are mailing it in (so to speak) and not friendly or helpful. While my Husband was trying to open the door into the lobby he had a sleeping child in his arms, a stroller, and a few bags over his shoulders. […] The front desk worker just sat and watched him fumble with the door while trying to get everything (and everyone) through the door. ALso when we called for towels they weren't friendly and barely understandable (they spoke the required message so fast and with no enunciation as if they were tired of having to say it when the phone rang). Nothing bothers me more than people in the HOSPITALITY business making it oh so obvious how much they hate being hospitable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Definitely on the nicer side of what you would expect for this price range. Big room, comfy king sized bed, decent sized bathroom. The gentleman at the counter was very kind to me, as was my housekeeper. Its half a block away from the bus. I will definitely stay here again the next time I come down.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Stay Close to Berkely"
Love the location , close to Berkely Unv. Has Dennys and Carrows across the street, easy on and off access to Freeway. The place is very secure only one way in late at night front door with room key access.Genuine Expedia guest review
