"great value hotel close to UC Berkeley and BART"
We were here to check out the university. everything was great for the money we paid (proximity, comfort, cleanliness, convenience, service, friendliness) except for the eggs at breakfast which tasted like cardboard. Would definitely recommend!

"Great for Business Travel"
I stay here frequently because our corporate office is close by. The price is right, most times I get a room with a couch/sitting room area, nice! Lots of good places to eat close by, Free breakfast and parking also make it very appealing. I would say don't walk too far around there at night. Almost forgot the free fresh baked cookies! :)

There are a number of motels in the area but this was the only hotel I could find. Everything was nice and clean and the parking lot was spacious. We walked to the UC Berkeley campus which was a little farther than I expected but not terrible. Breakfast was good and staff friendly.

"Berkeley graduation"
Kevin met us at the front desk with over the top professionalism. He checked us in and answered all our questions very politely and professional...just the type of person to be at the front desk at check in time. Later that evening Raj helped us, and my sister, with a map and directions to the graduation at the Berkeley campus. He listened patiently while my sister and I had discussions on how to best get to the Haas Pavilion for the graduation. When I asked his opinion, he offered it with explanations, and gave us great information regarding the parking garages, how far we would have to walk, etc. We had a wonderful morning at the graduation, less stress, with the expert help of Raj. I would highly recommend this hotel. The only drawback was no hot tub or pool to ease our travel weary bodies. Oh, the breakfast was very good and the staff there very friendly and helpful. BUT...my most overall best experience with Holiday Inn Express is the Eureka/Arcata one and the one in Everett WA. Always great staff.

Clean. Staff responsive . Well maintained. Good parking. Neighborhood probably safe but offers nothing that would invite walking around. A good place for business travelers . I Would probably look for something closer to university neighborhood and BART to accommodate my interest in restaurants, shops , ability to get into San Francisco without a car etc

"Great hotel but couldn't turn the TV off"
Arrived about 12:30am... TV was on when we entered the room. The TV could NOT be turned off. Turned the volume down and went to sleep - too tired to call for service. Other than that, the room was nice and very clean. The hotel was quiet and breakfast was great! I would recommend! Especially if you book through Hotels.com - otherwise the rates are high (if you are not from CA and used to it).

"Exceeded expectations"
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.

"Great Hotel!"
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 again!

"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.

"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.

"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.

"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

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.
