Spent three nights here recently when i took my son to Berkeley.
The good thing about this place is the location. Just a couple of blocks from BART.
The bad things are:
Small room with no desk. Nice desk chair, but no 'desk' other than the top of a dresser drawer.
Dark and stuffy room with no air conditioning (there was an AC unit on the wall but it didn't work). At least there was a fan in the room.
Windows that don't open.
Bed frames that seem designed to maim anyone who dares to visit. Good luck in the middle of the night!
Ugly orange walls with holes.
A sink stopper that wouldn't work correctly
Bathroom fixture handle that comes off.
Bathroom door that won't close correctly without being forced.
Barely functional wifi
Ethernet wall plug with cable. Doesn't work.
'Free Parking' means on the street after 6:00 PM. 11 spaces, everyone else, good luck!
On my next trip there I'll try someplace else. It was okay.... But not a place I wanted to hang around very much.
