Checked in with a buddy of mine to visit my brother at UC Berkeley in late May. This hotel was very simple and nice. Very convenient with cab rides, restaurants, and not too far walking distance from the campus. The rooms were nice and went at a good time with the weather. Parking is available and service was great. Can't complain with cable and internet. Be back again in august.

This was a great hotel! The staff was very kind and very helpful. It is very close to the University of California Berkeley which was awesome. It was walking distance! The hotel is in a great location.

Reviewed 19 October 2010

We have stayed at the Travelodge in Berkeley a number of times over the past 2 years. It is only a 1-mile drive to the UC Berkeley campus and there are a number of good restaurants within a very short drive or walk. The building is probably 1960s-vintage but the rooms are well appointed and always clean. Some have questioned the safety of the neighborhood but we have never had a problem. If you have 2 beds in a room it can be a bit cramped. Rates usually run around $100-110 per night, but they jumo to $150 when Cal has a football game. For the area this motel is a bargain. There is no breakfast but compared to paying a lot more at other places near campus, so what? WiFi works well.

Reviewed 28 February 2010

We have stayed here about three different times over the last 10 years. We like the location and it isn't 10 blocks from BART (more like 5). Close to many nice ethnic restaurants. Impressively quiet despite being on a busy street.
Down side is the non smoking rooms smell bad and have cigarette burns every where(including the toilet seat). Noticed a hooker hanging out in the parking lot during the day, which was new this trip. It is old, but clean. The housekeeping staff are nice.
We don't spend much time in the room when we're in Berkeley. We really care about cleanliness, safe parking and a good nite sleep. Got all three each visit.
