“Comfortable Stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

Within this price range, this is one of the most pleasant stays I've had. From tthe outside with the unexpected landscaping to the fresh, clean grounds you have a very cozy feeling. Inside the rooms are large, clean and very attractive. Amenties are up-to-date including the large screen TV, upgrade refrig and micro, nice hair dryer and good quality personal supplies. Really a pleasant experience!

I'd never ever go back to this place ever! Worse customer service I've ever experienced and the rooms smelled very bad The furniture is scratched up like it's from a junk yard! Very rude front desk person and the deposit is $150.00 to hold on your credit card for 3 days minimum.

Inexpensive - compared to rivals (60$ difference in price for similar quality). Reasonable sized room, very clean, excellent shower and standard facilities. About 20 minutes distance from San Francisco downtown. Went for a walk about in the early evening - to be recommended very beautiful at the waters edge

I booked (using Wyndham service) a month in advance receiving confirmation number. Despite that my room was not available and I was forced to look for a different motel. I was there with 5 kids so you can imagine all the issues I had in doing that

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

My wife and I stayed here on a visit to my niece's graduation from Berkeley. Some family members stayed at a 5 star hotel in town, but we opted for a less expensive option. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of this motel. It had been newly renovated, and was super clean. The management is very friendly and helpful. There is a small offering for breakfast of coffee and a sweet roll, but while not filling, it is a nice touch and seems to expense the owners hospitality.
The location is also close to the main part of town.

On the down side, making the reservations was a little uneven, and the water pressure (in the otherwise beautiful bathroom) is low. But, we would gladly stay here again.

This is an inexpensive place that's nice to hole up for a week or so if you are visiting the University or just staying in town a little while. It's close to the North Berkeley BART station (about 3 blocks south) and less than a mile from the west edge of campus. There's a "microfridge" in each room for saving and reheating leftovers. The rooms are small and don't have too many accouterments, but they are very clean, and the owners are very friendly.

I informed the manager in the office (male) when I checked in that I needed to be able to make a long distance call from my room. That evening the long distance on the phone was still not hooked up so I went to the motel office and I asked again to be able to make a long distance phone call from my room; I had told them it was an important call . The manager (male) SCREAMED at me at the top of his lungs in a long winded ranting diatribe!
I would NEVER want to stay in the Capri Motel in Berkeley EVER again. I literally would not wish this "motel" on my worst enemy !!
(At the bottom it asks the reviewer it they have photos; I took a photo of the Screaming manager of this motel but since my stay was a while ago , and i needed room in the memory card, I deleted it in favour of a more pleasant memory .. like Hurricane Katrina ! )

Room Tip: Ask them to wash or dry-clean the Bedspreads before you book a room !
