"Nice hotel with proximity to University and SF"
The hotel is conveniently located to get around Berkeley or to go to San Francisco. There are loads of places to eat and shop nearby too.Genuine Expedia guest review
AC too loud. Needs to be controlled by thermostat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very clean, comfortable bed, spacious, wonderful service, great business center, great breakfast!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was not terribly thrilled with the surrounding area but the hotel itself did not disappoint.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome place to stay!!! Better than I expected!"
Great place!! Close to BART, close to Berkeley College!! Nice. Breakfast was great too. Just a really great place to stay and not having to stay in San Fran!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Happy with my choice"
Glad I picked this place, it was a great price and very nice. The beds were comfortable, the décor updated, and the breakfast made it an even better deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms and general appearance of the rest of the hotel seemed very clean, new, and comfortable. I think it was recently rennovated. The view outside my window was no view at all - it was a darkened wall of incomplete construction - but I don't care about views, and I kept the thick sun-blocking shade drawn most of the time anyway. The bed was comfy […] with different pillow choices, there was lots of seating and various tables and surfaces throughout the room, and it had a convenient little counter with a fridge, sink, and microwave. Bathroom was nice and clean, with nice toiletries provided. The breakfast is delicious! Nice variety, awesome pancake maker, and the best biscuits I've ever had. The price was reasonable, and the location is fine. Nothing too exciting in the immediate area, but Downtown Berkeley is only minutes down the street, and the nearest BART station is a 10-15 minute walk, which I didn't mind at all. The hotel was very enjoyable and comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed here for 4 nights. Chose Berkley instead of San Francisco because of safety. Holiday Inn was nice: food, service, and location. I felt safe here. Right down the street is a good Mexican restaurant called La Mission that we ate at a lot! Breakfast at hotel included pancakes, cereal, omlets, sausage, and the like. Would most def stay here agai […] n! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It is what it is"
It's a Holiday Inn, not a resort and spa. For that, this place gets 4 stars from me. I use this hotel while visiting my daughter in Berkeley, and it's been always clean and never had problem with anything. The stuff are professional enough. I can't complain about the street noise because they are not making the noise.Genuine Expedia guest review
Bare minimum of upkeep. Shabby halls, elevator, public space. Should be nicer given price and chain standards. More like motle 6. Disappointing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"smokey bathroom with a scent to cover"
The Hotel and Service was fine, front desk clerk was nice but not very knowledgeable about the area. CONS: Our bathroom smell like the cleaning lady smoke there while she clean, then try to cover it up with a scented spray or something. Told the clerk, she asked if we had used the room??? answer "YES" , she cannot change our room because we used it. […] PROS: hot complimentary breakfast sausage, bacon, and a lot more. Nice hotel aside from the smokey smelly bathroom. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We like Holiday Inn Express Hotels...as usual, our stay was comfortable and quiet...the staff especially helpful with a personal need...we would definitely stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect stay for a family with a Berkeley student!"
We had a lovely time! That's all I have to say at this time! It is outrageously rude of this website to refuse my very positive review of this fine facility because of the brevity of my remarks!Genuine Expedia guest review
Check in was easy, staff was helpful. The room we stayed in was a mini suite, very clean and comfortable. While we were in a busy area, the room was nice and quite.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Acceptable place to stay while in Berkeley."
Uneventful, the best kind for a business trip. Parking is ample, room was clean, however it needed to have the shower rod fixed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Home Sweet Home Awat from Home"
I like the pillow assortment and the comfotable desk and convenient plugs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for all traverlers"
Good location, with easy freeway access.Free wi-fi. Breakfast included if you are an earlier riser. A little far to walk to downtown Berkeley but could be done. The room was spacious and clean. Lots of places to eat within a few minutes of walking. Couldn't have asked for a better room.Genuine Expedia guest review
I wish they would vacuum the carpets every day - and the stains on the carpet were really the only real detractor in the room. The furniture was in nice condition so the room was pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great if you're the explorer type"
Unless you know what you're looking for, the hotel isn't easy to spot on the road which I like in the sense that it's not super flashy. It's also within walking distance to the BART to go to San Fran and there are so many great places to eat near by or you can even walk to Berkeley University. Or it's a short drive from the highway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Construction currently next door, 7am wakeup call"
Very satisfied with all aspects of the stay. However there is construction going on next door, was woken at 7 am by hammering that was literally 15 feet from our heads. The hotel seemed pretty full, so it's possible they could not have situated us elsewhere. Did not contact the front desk as I was already up and moving rooms would not have helped, I […] just went out for the day. The construction noise is not something they control, but travelers should be aware it is happening and maybe call to ask if it's still ongoing. Stay was around 2/15/2013 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel to stay!"
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Enjoyed to be able to park without having to search for a parking spot. Also the parking was free where other hotels in the area you have to pay so much per day. Free Wi-fi and the continental breakfast was a plus. The hotel was walking distance to our son's appartment which allowed us to walk back and forth. The hotel […] room was clean and all the fixtures very modern and in good upkeep. Staff very helpful. We will stay at this hotel when we come back to the Berkerley area.

"Great for business or workshop stay."
I thought that this hotel was quite nice. I stayed from 1/27 to 2/2/13 (6 nights). The room and bathroom were kept nicely clean (there were some small mildew spots in the bathroom - but not terrible). I found the bed to be pretty comfy and I slept well (however I was engaged in strenuous physical activity each day - so was pretty exhausted each night […] - may have helped me sleep). The wireless internet worked well, however the satellite TV - Dish network - seemed to work intermittently which was mildly annoying but I wasn't really watching much TV. The little 'kitchen' area was quite nice and my favorite part of the room. It was great to have a little sink for dishes, cupboard space, fridge and microwave. There was also plenty of drawer space for clothing, a nice table and chair to use as a desk and a great nightstand - with outlets on the lamp (handy for phone charging). Also I really appreciated the hot breakfast included in the stay - it was great to get up early and have my coffee, toast and eggs before setting out for my day. (There was actually a good variety of food for breakfast - cereals, eggs, pancakes, fruit, sweet rolls, yogurt, etc). The neighborhood wasn't super but not scary. As a single woman I wouldn't and didn't wander around after dark, but during the day was fine for walking about and there were several close restaurants and a great coffee bar. Overall this was a good value and a great place to stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to UCal Berkeley"
Similar to most Holiday Inn Expresses we have stayed in. The overall cleaniness of the rooms could have been better and the front desk staff were not very personable. The location was great considering we were visiting UCal Berkeley.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the business traveler"
The hotel is very clean and a very courteous staff. The breakfast items are great for those on the go. Parking is plentiful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent near Oakland"
Stayed here for three nights while in Oakland for business. Didn't have an opportunity to check out the surrounding neighborhood, but didn't find the area at all toubling, certainly far better than options within Oakland proper. Have had questionable expeinces in Oakland previously. Service at hotel was as expected, rooms were clean, and parking was […] ample, safe, as well as free. Construction on the lot to the west may limit future views, but noise was not an issue during our stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great service and very comfortable beds."

"great spot. very clean+quiet"
Big quiet room. Free parking and wifi. Very very basic. Great convenient. Would definitely return. Pricier than necessary though.Genuine Expedia guest review
Better than other choices in price range. 10 minute walk to BART. Late, after sunset walk slightly edgy thru neighborhood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In the middle of Berkeley"
Good location, close to Berkeley campus and marina with pier. Nice room condition - like new. Found big black cockroach (alive) in my room near my suitcase. Administrator said that it never happened before. Floor in the bathroom wasn't very clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Safe hotel for senior citizen"
Having a room adjacent to the elevator made an early to bed difficult. I needed to leave the next day as I realized I was not feeling well. No way to cancel prepaid reservation. Recently had my 6th heart procedure done and I needed my rest.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel for a California trip"
We very much enjoyed our stay, including all of the room amenities. The only negatives would be that our refrigerator did not stay very cold (especially in the freezer section) due to periodic defrosting, and the plate in our microwave oven did not rotate when in use.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I would stay here again"
Hotel was very clean, good breakfast . I would stay here again but I would ask for a room away from lobby area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice weekend stay, but not informed of deposit..."
I stayed here for a weekend with my mom in early March to look at schools and attend a conference. The room was a great deal and the staff was super helpful. The only thing I have to complain about is that when I booked the room online (my scholarship committee paid for it with the organization's credit card), and I wasn't informed in any way that I […] would have to pay a $70 ($35 each night) room damage deposit when I arrived. I almost didn't have enough money to cover the fee and if I would have been told, my scholarship committee would have paid the fee before I got there. I even looked on the receipt and there was nothing that said I would have to pay the fee right when I got there. They were nice about it and made it clear it would be put back into my account, but that wasn't the point. What if I didn't have the extra $75 to put down? Otherwise, nice room.

"Convenient and safe location for Family"
Nice hotel, convenient location a littel overpriced. We checked about 1 am in the morning, our first impression was, very cooperative Front desk service, even after midnight. Since we checked in verry late, we had to sleep longer on our first day, the cleaning team didn't show up after 12:30 pm that day. the second day and third day they just cleaned […] the bathroom and didn't even changed the bedsheat. After all we decided to stay five more days in the hotel, but they gave us higher price and we had to move to different rooms, which mad us to leave the hotel and found a better hotel for about the same price.

"Hotel well locate. Room is clean and silent."
The hotel is well located and maintained. Room is clean and silent. We've some comments just about breakfast: the room size is small, so frequently you have to wait to be seated. And, also, during my stay, some days there was no fruit available.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Stay in Berkeley"
We arrived at the hotel on a sunday afternoon after a 6 hour drive from the LA area. We found the front desk clerk to be pleasant and inviting. She provided us with an area map that helped us navigate the town later that day. Our room was clean and good sized. Linens were nice and the housekeeping was good. TV had abundant channels and the addition […] of a microwave and fridge was a plus! Area wasn't the greatest but was located on a main street in Berkeley. Options for dining were many! Overall a nice place to stay and I would use this hotel in the future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
