Knights Inn Berkeley
Ranked #7 of 20 Hotels in Berkeley
Reviewed 19 August 2014

The hotel is very well located with a bus stop just outside. It was also quite clean and the staff was accomodating. However, the breakfast though advertised, is a non-starter. Stays quite packed, though.

The hotel is ok for the price, but it is not what they advertise. The room didn't have the queen california bed they said. The rooms don't have closet. Nice tv.
We had a problem with the staff at the lobby, we needed to cancel a few nights and the woman said that it was imposible to do it. So we called Booking and they helped us with the cancelation. The woman at the hotel was rude and disrespectful. It seemed that she only cared about the money. We changed to another hotel cheaper, more confortable and with nice staff.

The Knights Inn Berkeley is located in a perfect location on University Ave. The hotel itself is really clean and well maintained. Parking is free which is a plus. The staff helped planned my day and things to do in Berkeley. I would definitely stay here again. I found the lowest rates on their site so I recommend booking through there.

Stayed there for two days. The receptionists were really nice, the room was clean and the bed really comfortable. I would totally recommend this hotel if you are planning on staying close to the university without paying much.

At the moment I booked the Knights Inn was the only location below the 300$/night limit.
It is a little distant from downtown San Francisco but when you are not afraid of walking you just take the BART after a 10 minutes walk and without traffic jams you will join the main places within 30-60 minutes, depending on where you want to go. Depending on where you stay in the city this won't be different.
The vicinity is not particularly spoiled, a lot of homeless people hang around or just try to find shelter wherever it is less windy or wet.
The motel itself can only be described as very clean - the rooms have a decent size and bathroom is clean and comfortable.
I suppose the bathroom is cleaned with bleach leaving a pertinent smell of Hypo chloric acid - the most serious drawback.
Well you can overcome that by ventilating the room abundantly and helping with some better smelling chemicals.
The beds are very nice and comfortable. The amenities are ok - my fridge did not work but since the weather was not hot I did not need it.
The Wifi is free and of a really excellent quality.
The surroundings are quite except for the train you can hear whistling from time to time.
The advertised breakfast is a joke, you can get a packed cookie at the reception together with a coffee.
An overall ok-good experience.

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!
