“Clueless and Smelly in Berkeley La Quinta”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

While having breakfast with my 9 & 7 yr old kids, 2 men and the breakfast concierre lady were talking loud and 1 of men kept saying "F" word. Conciere lady was laughing w/ men. She didn't tell them to stop. When men left, I told conciere lady I was offended & my kids disturbed. Conciere lady got snarky & told me to complain to front desk. Our room smells moldie, we didn't get replacement towels after our 2nd day, from then we only got 3 towels for 4 people in room & kept having to go to front desk to ask for a 4th towel. When I was up @ front desk, another guest (from Korea) was telling front desk person that her room smelled like cigarette smoke. My husband could smell someone smoking just the day before. Front desk guy just brushed this guest off and didn't try to help her. A bunch of jerks working @ La Quinta Berkeley, California!

This property was run down and tired looking overall. The beds sagged in the middle. The staff was unfriendly and not helpful. The maids left trash in the bathroom--they seemed to have just quit halfway through cleaning the room. Basically the whole property just felt sleezy and depressing. We would never stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel because it was fairly close to a BART station( 11 blocks). It is an older property but well maintained. The staff was very helpful and was even able to check us in early so we could go sight seeing. Pool was nice. Breakfast had sausage and eggs so it was better than the normal La Quinta spread. Rooms and Bathrooms were clean and comfortable.

I staY At Nothing But La Quinta's. ThIs Is One Of The More Mediocre Ones. The Rates Were Over 130 A Night For Room That The Ceiling Was Peeling, Size Was Small, Reception On The TV Fuzzy At Times. Front Desk Was Friendly. The Lady In The Breakfast Room will Say Hi, But Tell You Off In Spanish. Last Day, For The First time Ever, I Got Rushed To Check Out. I Will Not Bother Staying At This One Ever Again
