"Good hotel, nice area"
Berkeley is a quiet city. We spend two nights in this hotel to visit San Francisco, only 5 minutes walk away from the BART station. Clean rooms, dont't expect a complete breakfeast.

"dank"
The room smelled dank. I turned on the heat/air conditioning and it smelled awful, too! The office is closed from 11:30 until morning, so if there are problems, tough luck!

"Disappointing Stay"
I was not expecting much for the price, but this was worse than I had imagined. The bathroom was "upgraded" with black granite tiles that were dangerously slippery. The bedspreads were grimy and threadbare. The breakfast was pitiful. It was some cereal, soggy waffles, and some yogurt that was served in a closet-sized breakfast room. There was a blackout (not the motel's fault) and we were not offered help getting to our room. I asked to borrow a flashlight and was told no. I asked about candles and we were told no. It was a dangerous situation that required some hospitality. We got none. The next day when I complained to the owner, he rudely dismissed me. I could forgive the lousy breakfast, slippery tiles, and dingy room if the owner showed a little hospitality.

"A sufficient clean hotel"
We wanted an inexpensive room in the east bay and the hotel met this need. It was well located. The breakfast was better than most Super 8s because the cereal was not oversweetened and the yogurt was good. The room was cramped and less good than most Super 8s and the bed was small. The neighborhood wasn't very good and just blocks from the hotel a security guard chased and grabbed a potential thief outside the store. However, this is not the northside of town and walking around in daylight was interesting. There was sufficient parking and we were very satisfied in that regard.

"Very disappointing"
I was not expecting much at the super eight, but this was worse than I thought. The room was of decent size, but the beds were covered with old, dingy bed spreads. The bathroom was "upgraded" with shiny black granite which was dangerously slippery. The lights went out, not the motels fault, but we were told to just go up to the room. It was pitch black. When I asked about flashlights or candles I was told they had nothing to offer us to help. I asked if the attendant, who had a flashlight, could help us to our room. He charged up the stairs in front of us which was no real help. When I complained the next day the owner rudely dismissed me. Finally the breakfast was pitiful. It was some soggy waffles and old fruit that they put in a tiny, closet-like room. I will not go back.

"ok in a pinch."
Stayed for an overnight stay. Driving in I felt that the parking stall were to small for my Lexus 350. The person that checked me in was not that friendly but then there as a bit of a line going out the very tiny office. When I asked if there was breakfast served he said that they put out donuts right here (answering as if he could not be bothered). Which made me curios of where while on the Hotels.com sight there is a picture of a "breakfast area" I did not see that. Maybe there was one but He did not offer up where. I was given the ADA room (I'm not ADA) but if I were It would have been tough very small room to get around a wheelchair. The bathroom was spacious but that it (Room 108). Lastly, they were kids (whom I suspect live there) playing soccer with a ball and bouncing it on some cars, not mine but really? It was in decent proximity to Downtown Berkeley and BART. The bed was comfortable and the flat screen nice.

"Comfortable place."
Our stay was pleasant and comfortable. There is a fridge and microwave in the room so you can buy food and bring in so you don't have to spend money in San Francisco. Everything is very clean and I didn't find it noisy. You need to remember this is a Motel, the breakfast is adequate (yogurt, fresh fruit, oatmeal and waffles, coffee, juice and milk.) Dinning area is small but you can always take it to your room. The people running it were always nice and friendly. I will definitely stay there again without question.

"Ok, with some reservations"
My husband and I spent one night to attend a baseball game. Check in was ok, but the clerk did not seem interested in answering our questions. Later, my husband saw him with some buddies smoking pot outside our bathroom window. The room was good sized, and the bathroom had been remodeled. The closet smelled like cat urine, although the rest of the room smelled ok. Our on the street room had traffic noise, but turning the room fan on helped. All in all, I would not stay here again.

"Dirty, rundown, beds are uncomfortable"
I booked this hotel because all hotels were fully booked, and I needed to attend to my daughter's graduation. Of course, because they knew I had nowhere to go, they hiked up the price to $280. This hotel is rundown. Carpets were dirty. Bathroom was dirty. Only showers no bathtub. They gave a small bottle of shampoo only. No conditioner, no lotion, nothing else. The bath towels were small and looked like they have been used for over 50 times. Over all really disappointing. I couldn't wait to get out of there. I'm ok with paying high price if it's worth it. But this hotel is just disgusting. I can't believe they charged me $520 for 2 nights. Do not stay here.

"Good for a night or 2..."
The bathroom had recently been upgraded, so it was nice. However, there is no fan and the window looks out to another window. The beds were too soft, so our backs hurt, but it was clean and had no funky smell at all. There is a 7/11 just down the street, which is good as there is only one very old vending machine with water. Though the location was sketchy, but it puts you just outside the Bay Area traffic making it easy to go up to Napa or out to Tahoe.

"Horrible customer service"
Do NOT recommend that hotel. Horrible customer service. The person in service was absolutely disgusting. Totally ungroomed, wearing the same smelly clothes, very unfriendly and rude. The "breakfast" was horrible, terrible food. Did not fit for any State Health Department in sanitation, no utensils to pick up bread, the milk for the coffee was questionable. The only good thing in this hotel is the new, remodeled bathroom. Extremely overpriced for the conditions. I will never go there again

"no complaints."
Not bad at all for the price. We scored a room for $80 on a Saturday night, which was great. The check-in area was stuffy and barely large enough for two people to stand in, let alone take suitcases into, but only one person need check in anyhow. The room was clean, tidy, and free of any weird smells or spots. We were on the ground floor but had thick curtains to block out the light/headlamps and felt secure with the door locked. The TV and fridge were up-to-date and the bathroom was spiffy, although the shower door wouldn't stay closed (I had to drape a washcloth over the door to keep it on the frame). It was an okay walk from the hotel to downtown Berkeley. It's not super well-lit, but it wasn't a bad neighborhood--nor was there anything really interesting between the hotel and downtown.

"Quick Business Trip to Berkeley"
I work for a nonprofit but travel a lot for work, so sometimes it is a struggle to find hotels that are within budget, in a good location, and still comfortable. The Super 8 in Berkeley definitely fit all of this criteria. It's about a 15-minute walk to Shattuck Square and 8-minute walk to the North Berkeley subway stop. The guy who checked me in (wish I knew his name) was awesome. He was super nice and well-prepared, which after zig-zagging the country all day (urghh... low-cost carriers!) was well appreciated. I will admit that I am a pretty no-frills person and I am sure there are superficial things about this hotel that could be improved as other reviewers have pointed out. BUT, the bathroom looked like it had been recently renovated and the beds were comfortable and clean. For almost half the price of other hotels in the area, looking at an ugly door is pretty inconsequential.

The price was reasonable compared to others in the area and the location was perfect for us. Within walking distance to plenty of really good local restaurants and sites. The rooms are a little small, but it appears that aoat everything in the room is new - bathroom tile and fixtures, carpeting, etc. the only thing I would ask for is a better mattress.
