"Towels cut in half"
I found it extremely weird that the towels seemed to be half towels. As if they were cut in half. Clever way to save money. Not ideal for someone who wants to have a shower and wrap up in a towel afterwards.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"off the freeway"
it was o.k........good price...room kinda stunk.....small breakfast choicesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"awesome room but poor service"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
So, you know it's one of the least expensive around and for that its a great deal. My room (110) was clean, well maintained, with comfy beds. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The neighborhood is kinda ghetto but safe enough to walk around at night. Brekky is typical carb overload and the coffee is tasty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Front desk agent"
When I checked the front desk agent was very rude. When I asked for extra towels he gave problems saying that I haven't used the towels that were already in the room. Then in the room it smelled but we couldn't check out. I would never stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pillows were a little hard, but can not beat it for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
the place is a dump and rude staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The reviews are misleading"
It's located in a very bad area, which creates noise all night. The heater didn't work. At least it seemed clean, but I wouldn't ever stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
IF YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE ONE FLOOR FOR SMOKEING, YOU SHOULD REALIZE THAT SMOKE RISES AND PUT THE SMOKEING ON THE TOP FLOOR. OPEN WINDOWS AND TURN ON HEATER YOU WILL BE FINE.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to BART and downtown Berkeley"
Was seeing a show in downtown Berkeley and stayed here. A short walk to the BART station and a 10 minute train ride to downtown Berkeley. I would definitely stay here again for a show at the Greek.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It was fine"
Good location near BART station, further from UC than I expected, not a good walking neighborhood, ran out of coffee in the lobby, parking was fine.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Acceptable but a little overpriced"
Convenient location right off the 80 fwy. Room is not as shown in the ad; there is no separate area or sofa. Facility is old. Breakfast is standard continental. Overall mediocre for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It worked well."
Overall this hotel is a good deal for the money. I was disappointed that there was no laundry facility though. The room was clean and comfortable. Most importantly there were no strange odors. I've certainly stayed in better places, but I've also stayed in much worse. It is just a short walk to the BART station and there are places to eat nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"It filled a need"
The hotel is old. The cleanliness was OK, but the bed wasn't very comfortable. The hotel is in bad need of an upgrade. It was close to the BART Station which was a plus and it was convenient to I - 80 for driving purposes. The cleaning staff did there best, but you just can't fix old and worn out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Unfortunately the bathroom was not working as it supposed to and there was a big problem with this (the management didn't take care of it properly). Other than this, the hotel has good breakfasts and convinient location close to the BART train station from where you can get to San Francisco downtown in 30 minutes.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great staff, aging building"
I first got assigned to a non-smoking room on the first floor that had a pretty overpowering smoke smell, but when I asked, the lady at the front desk gladly switched me to a room on the second floor that had no smoke smell . The room was large for the price range and had a sitting area with a couch and coffee table in addition to the expected bed, […] desk, tv, fridge. The room itself showed some age. I recall a small hole in th wall by bathroom, and the AC didn't seem to work, but it was smartly decorated and very clean. Most important for me, at checkout I left a folder with my itinerary, ID, and some other important documents, and my camera, in the room, and within an hour the front desk called me to let me know! They wrere both honest and on top of things, which I can't appreciate enough. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, convenient location"
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The facilities were OK and the complimentary breakfast was good. The location is close to freeway. The surrounding and the landscaping is not good as I thought. If you just look for a place to sleep, this is an affordable place. But that's it.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not the best location but convenient. The room was very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Misleading reviews on Hotels.com"
The review on the website DID NOT match our experience. It said how clean this place was and how friendly the staff was. Our room stunk bad and when we opened the window to air it out it looked like the screen had been tampered with from outside, and someone was lurking out side our window in the middle of the night. Breakfast was a joke, a toaster […] some ego waffles, and bread. I would have spent the extra money to stay elsewhere but I trusted the reviews on the website...big mistake, lesson learned!

"Good Rate for close to San Francisco"
Overall good rate for close to San Francisco. Location right off Interstate 80 exit for easy freeway access. I would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient, clean, and affordable"
The room was much nicer than I expected. It was very clean, which is the most important factor for me; smelled like bleach a bit when first entering the room, but I was just happy it was clean. The location was very convenient, as I had to be near Cal in the morning - directly off the freeway ramp so it was very easy to find. The only complaints - (1) […] the thermostat didn't work, and (2) 2/3 pillow cases smelled musty - I'm pretty sure they just weren't fully dry after they were removed from the machine and it was humid during my stay. I appreciated the free on-site parking, comfortable and spacious room, many nearby restaurants and shops, and free wi-fi with comfortable desk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do NOT use the wifi here!"
Checked out of this hotel last Thursday, it's now Wednesday. I just checked my Facebook and I see someone has an open and active session of my Facebook account open from there right now!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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

"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
