Can’t wait to get back to Berkeley again.
We’ve been to several hotels as our daughter is a student at Cal. By far this is the best hotel on University Ave.

Fair 4.0
Who ever gave this a good review?
First impression? Old and seedy! The property should be leveled, it is so old fashioned. The room was clean, the floor in the bathroom was new, but the room was very very small barely fitting the bed. We were supposed to stay a week, and fortunately had not paid in advance, so we paid for one night, and left after breakfast. Breakfast? Absolutely basic and not fresh. Nothing hot but the toast you make yourself and the coffee.

Convenient for Berkeley with a car
I had a weekend stay here for some work at Berkeley. It's a generally convenient and walkable spot (lots of shopping and restaurants around), but it's a bit of a hike from BART, so a car to get there is a help. There is ample parking. The hotel is comfortable, rooms are good sized and well equipped. Staff was friendly, and the wifi held up well. Would stay again.

This is definitely one of the better places to stay. New - clean - good free breakfast - and an easy walk to the North Berkeley BART. We will be back!

Solid stay
Everything waa fine with this hotel, the building is clean and updated. Breakfast had plenty of offerings and even with a large crowd of people in there they never ran oit of anything. The rooms are packed with amenities, wet bar, safe, microwave.. My only issue with this hotel was the bed could have been softer, it waa not exactly a comfy bed, we all woke up a bit sore..

Best place in the area for price super safe easy walking to many places to eat and shop right off freeway staff there is great including management... room was awesome comfortable bed . One of the many reasons I’ll be coming back is how great the breakfast was great selection to choose from very good tasting and comfortable finding area . One last thing I had a last minute change in schedule and one of my service guys needed a room so front desk was able to move some things around and get him into room right next to ours with a king suite that’s connected to ours through doors on inside of room 215 & 217 front desk went above and beyond and a great front desk comes from great management thank you. All for a great stay making my life much easier ... omg I totally forget indoor pool and hot tube a absolute plus I spent few hours in both for 2 days very refreshing and relaxing
