"Rodeway Inn excellent for traveling musicians"
Pleasantly surprised by this motel. I had previously stayed exclusively at Hotel Durant in Berkeley at a significantly higher rate. As a traveling musician, courtyard parking & immediate access to my car was a real bonus. Motel was clean and extremely well managed.

"Not bad for the price"
Clean and obviously upgraded in 2007. Bed was ok. Shower worked great and considering it's on a busy street and the door was not sealed tight, it was relatively quiet.

"Great budget stay accessible to San Francisco"
I was very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It says on a sign outside that it was renovated fully in 2007, but the room I had seemed like it had been repainted, bathroom rebuilt, and bed linen all brand new within the last year or two. It was a great option for me (business traveller, self-employed and therefore budget conscious, and spending his own money) for sensibly priced access to San Francisco. Rode BART into the city and back each day; the hotel is a block and a half from the North Berkeley BART stop, and then about 20 minute ride for $4.00 to the financial district. There is a reasonable collection of restaurants nearby; this is not bustling downtown Berkeley, but perfectly serviceable.

"Nice stay"
Close to UCB campus. The breakfast was decent. I would have given 5 starts if not for the watery OJ at breakfast; they had Starbucks coffee for free though (if you are not interested in providing good/actual juice, please remove it from menu altogether). The room was clean.

"Great-price clean nice hotel close to UC Berkeley"
This hotel was better than we expected: the room rate was great, it was close to UC Berkeley campus (20-25 minute walk), the room was very clean and comfortable for two people, and the people at the front desk were nice. Although we were a little worried about the location when we were arriving, once we drove into the parking area, we felt that it was well taken care of and safe.

"My stay at the hotel"
The first day I arrived they let me use the restroom before I finished registering myself witch I thought was a very nice gesture, each morning the breakfast was ready. Personally I can't walk very well and the gentlemen helped me carry my luggage to my room and he also showed me how to use the elevator so I wouldn't have to make use of the stairs, he also proved to me that chivalry is not forgotten

"Clean and basic hotel very close to UCB"
This hotel is very clean, quiet, and simple. There is a tv, free wifi, clean and comfortable bed, a small desk area and a microwave/fridge combo. There is no room service, but there is a continental breakfast that is cold cereal, fruit, and breakfast granola bars. I loved staying here. It was cheap, close to campus (about a 20 min walk to UCB) and safe. I highly recommend if you need a place to stay while checking out Berkeley. You're not coming for a view, or the amenities like a pool or bellhop service. You come to the Rodeway Inn because you need a safe and comfortable place to sleep, bathe, and refresh yourself before continuing on your trip.

"A vintage motel with a boutique hotel feel."
Near great eating spots and a cool non-Starbucky coffee shop. Close to Bart and not far from campus. We came in on Amtrak and Bart for a lecture and fell in love with this off-street motel with a hotel feeling. Clean with very accommodating staff and a fresh full Continental breakfast in the morning. Clean room and bathroom, very fresh linen and bead spread, new extra pillows, and an actual upscale mattress found in hotels that four times the rate. This is our new Berkeley home away from home. It is an older original motel with vintage furninshings that have been well taken care of. Unless you are a painting contractor nit-picking details, you won't find a thing wrong here. They are getting ready to remodel al floor coverings but still, this place is clean, fresh, and comfy! We loved it! Nice bathtub and top grade toiletries.

"Pretty good"
Staff was great. We forgot a personal item in the room and they held it for us until the next day. Room was clean for the most part, but the back of the bathroom door had some kind of darker splashes against it that didn't look good. Don't want to be gross but our imaginations did run a little. Walls are thin, so you can hear your neighbors and people walking by, but that's standard in a motel. Overall, good for what it was and where it was.

"Convenience, Comfort, and Fair price"
We like this little place because it is so convenient to Berkeley at a fair price, neighborhood is fun - close to San Pablo shops etc. Not a five star hotel, but for the price it is comfortable - the breakfast is not at all something we care for but a marvelous little coffee bar is 1/2 block down the street where you walk up to the espresso bar and get fabulous pastries. We head out University and over the bridge to San Francisco easily from here so it is again, convenience that brings us back.

"probably the cleanest little motel on University"
We are 4 adults and 2 little ones traveling together, so the room was quite cramped, but thats what we get for trying to stay altogether in one little room. The hotel room was impeccably clean and you can tell they take care to keep it as spotless as possible, but its more of a motel, like most places on this stretch of University Ave (and my parents are not into motels). Next to a yummy thai restaurant.

I had a lovely night's sleep here- very quiet, rooms seemed well soundproofed, there was some traffic noise from outside but nothing exceptionally bad. Front desk guy was super sweet and the room was clean with a comfy bed. My room was very small but just fine for a single person. Parking seemed like it might fill up on busy nights but I didn't have any issues on a monday. Overall it was great, would definitely stay here again!

"I give it 2.5 stars out of 5"
The CON's:There is no counter space in the bathroom, or anywhere else. There are no places to put your suitcases or clothes. No drawers, no flat space. NOISE! On our second night,an entire bus load of college aged tourists arrived and screamed, and laughed and slamed doors until 10:30 PM. They parked themselves on the steps in front of our door, and they just sat out there and smoked and drank beer. The second-hand smoke sucked in through our heater and permeated our entire room. We reported it to the manager, but I finally had to go out and confront them myself, which worked for a while, but they kept it up for four days (nights)....Unreal. No one should have to put up with second-hand smoke every night. I just wish the manager could have put his foot down.[They could at least have the signs to tell people there is no smoking within 20 feet of a door or window] Now for the PROS: The bed was the best hotel bed we could remember for awhile (including hotels that cost 2 to 3 X's more). That alone, counts for a whole lot. And PRO #2: it was hard to beat the cost. Very reasonable. I guess overall, it is an OK place to stay, and most likely there are not ususally bus loads of loud and obnoxious college kids. If the manager had some backbone and could have helped keep it quite, and smoke free, that would go a long way toward a better rating. My wife said she would stay here again, I won't!

"You get what you pay for.........................."
Pay a few bucks more and find an updated property. Room was spartan & rough, walls are thin, parking lot is noisy, free breakfast is meager. Not a great place for the business traveler. Had a crew of my welders staying at this property with me, they moved to the Quality Inn down the street because they couldn't get a good nights sleep. I checked out a day early, of course no refund. Won't be back.

"Great Value and Decent Amenities."
The stay was only for a few hours as I arrived late in the evening and had to leave early in the morning. Check in only took about 3 minutes and the hotel clerk was friendly. The room was small but decently clean and updated. The free Wifi had problems with major slowdowns at times but it is still better than the Wifi I have had at many other larger hotels. The bathroom was tiny but adequate. The shower nozzle hardly put out any water so it made showering a little tiresome. The toilet had a long bowl which is always a plus and the flush was strong enough. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone that doesn't want to pay for something expensive in the area. Great value.

"OK for the price"
Cleanliness of the room has dropped quite a bit since last year. Anything the maid could not reach had been left dirty for months. For example teh top 1/3 of the mirrors were filthy. The bedspread was dirty & smelly so we put it on the floor when sleeping. Breakfast was skimpier than last year. For example no yougart or fresh fruit (other than apples) as shown in pictures on the web site. Internet is very slow. Nice parking.

"Decent enough hotel with friendly staff"
We needed a quick, late-night hotel after a day of travel and this fit the bill. The location is pretty great with access to UC and downtown Berkeley. It's not that easy to find, but has good parking and easy access to rooms (which is nice after a long day). The manager (owner?) was very friendly and helpful. The room itself was comfortable enough for the price and location. It had recently been renovated but it is what it is: a cheap but clean motel.

We were in the bay area apartment hunting. We stayed here because it was close to the apartments we were visiting and it was affordable compared to other options.The staff wasn'very friendly, the bed covers had holes, and the rooms don't have an iron. I agree with other comments. The hotel gets the job done but I'm sure there are better options at that price range.

"Small, affordable lodging in the heart of Berkeley"
The staff were wonderful, very helpful. The neighborhood was a bit beaten down with treasures of shops and great restaurants to be found amid fantastic people watching walks. The one big drawback was noisiness at night mostly from other hotel guests and laundry room right next door. Luckily our adventure was focused on exploring Berkely on foot and for that this hotel was ideal. Close to Amtrak, Bart and the heart of Berkely. Plus the price was right. We'd stay again in a heartbeat.
