Overall the stay was decent. The rooms were on the small side. The a/c is a swamp cooler so it's not the best for circulation. Front desk forgot to call our taxi. Very quiet stay though. Complimentary breakfast was cheap pastries and cereal. Wifi worked. Good for one night stay but not much longer than that.

Stayed at hotel only for 1 night. Staff was super friendly and kind- she recommended a great Indian resturant. Rooms are small, a little smelly. Nice neighborhood. I would not stay here again, I think it was overpriced for what it was.

My room was somewhat small but perfectly adequate. Everything was reasonably clean, the bed comfortable. Furniture a little worn, but -- who cares? I stayed here because the price was somewhat lower than the other motels on University Ave. that are relatively near the campus and downtown Berkeley. There are a couple of motels much farther to the west that are considerably cheaper but they are inconvenient (I was getting around without a car) and their ratings on this and other sites are low. My room was quiet EXCEPT that at 5:00 a.m. someone came around and knocked on all the doors (as you can see from the photo the motel is in a courtyard arrangement, with all the rooms opening onto a central plaza). I have no idea who this was. I am assuming that it was someone from the street. I did not respond to the knocking, for obvious reasons. I can't say that this is the motel's fault, since the courtyard is open on to the street. The neighborhood is okay (better than farther west), but there are homeless people and bizarre characters wandering all over Berkeley, so this could happen almost anywhere (except maybe the Claremont -- LOL).

Overall the experience was great. This quaint hotel is tucked away off the road of an ugly neighborhood that's beat down over the years. A lot of good restaurarants that have gone out of business. Parking outside while looking for food or things to do is bar none the worst in the world. No free parking anywhere IF you find a spot. Two types of people here wander the streets... Students and homeless. Safe though. Driving is slow. 25 mph everywhere. Went for seafood straight west all the way to the water then left south to HS Lordships. AWESOME FOOD. only locals know about it and it has plenty of seating with excellent views of the bay. Mattress was beat down but the hotel meets or exceeds expectations in all other areas. Clean, well maintained, quiet. A great spot for family, couples, business. Continental breakfast is ok but we went and explored breakfast restaurants all but one day to taste the town as they say.

We picked the Rodeway Inn because it was cheap(er) and near the BART station. It was better than I expected! The rooms were clean and the hotel just put nice, new wooden-slat blinds on the windows of the rooms while we were there. The bathroom appeared to be recently remodeled as well, with nice tile and granite. The bed was comfortable, not too soft or firm but just right. We didn't utilize the continental breakfast, so I can't comment on that. The neighborhood is not the best, but the hotel is set back from the street and feels enclosed upon itself, so it never felt unsafe. Plus the main street that leads from the hotel to the BART was very well lit; even walking back at midnight we never felt like we were in any danger. Overall, the hotel is a solid choice and I would certainly stay here again if I come back through the area!

Convenient location just 5 mins walk from North Berkeley BART station. I really like the area around the hotel - but that is partly as I lived here many years ago and know the place well. Most guests staying here though are with vehicles - the location is also good - just a few blocks from the 580 off-ramp. I can't comment on the breakfast as I always take advantage of the awesome coffee and pasties at the Fellini coffee "kiosk" just next door. Great Mexican food also to be had at the La Mission Mexican Grill. My only complaint - and it is a big one - was that the internet connection was not just bad, but rubbish. The connection strength was good - and equally bad on two devices - so the problem was elsewhere. Skype worked well one day - but for the other days even loading text-based pages took minutes (if at all....). I should say that this was at least my 4th stay here - and I haven't had this problem before. Based on location and price I will probably look at this place as my first choice again for my next stay - but if the internet connection is still unreliable I will start looking elsewhere after that.

We chose this hotel because we didn't have a lot of money to spend, and the reviews for this hotel were very favorable. We rented 2 rooms. The hotel felt safe for my family, which was the most important. Hotel staff was excellent. Rooms were a little small, but I knew that going in. The rooms were clean, however, not immaculate. The hotel parking lot was not wide open to the street, which I liked. While I was in the area, I looked at other hotels, and I felt that this hotel was the best. My daughter will be attending UC Berkeley for the next 4 years, so I plan to return. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

Hotels.com gave me a great rate so I shouldn't complain. However, the room was noisy - other guests' doors closing, loud vehicles, cars beeping when locked. Otherwise, the staff were welcoming, warm and courteous. The room was very clean and the bathroom recently renovated. The bed was comfy. Decent location.

A hidden treasure in an ocean of hectic. That is how I would describe the Rodeway Berkeley. We were looking for a hotel in the general Bay Area, but where some hotels mention parking fees because there is no on site parking available (there are a lot of space issues in the Bay) you get a parking space for free here. The BART station is literally a five-minute walk and with a few stops you're about everywhere in SF ... WITHOUT parking problems !!! So, yes. We fell in love with the location. The personal / owner took good care of us, and next time we're in the Bay Area, we definitly will stay here again.

Overall OK spot- clean enough and not far from the campus- however there were some construction workers staying in the hotel who were drinking/smoking and generally watching everyone come and go...sort of discomforting. Also- surrounding neighborhood is OK- but you will not see any college kids in this part of town (even though it is University Ave).

I was very disappointed with the lack of cleanliness and overall appearance of the room. It smelled like cigarettes despite being a non-smoking room. The bedding and rug were old and did not look clean. The mattress and pillows were very thin. We were stuck in a small room in the corner by the laundry (the dryer was running!) and the outside noise was noticeable because of the thin and poorly fitted door. Overall, I would NOT recommend staying here - my daughter and I did not sleep at all due to the cold and dirty conditions. It was too late to find anything else. Very, very disappointed!

used soap still in the shower, drink cups left from previous guests, musty smell, minimal breakfast offerings, I can live with all that, but clean sheets is a must. When there are hairs in the sheets from previous guests...I draw the line. I wont be back.

The location of hotel of convenient. The overal impression of the hotel is average. My room stunk like mold or something..had to leave the window open to get some fresh air in and air it out. Otherwise, had no problem with parking and it was quiet.
