Located in a non-descript building on a quiet corner just one long block from the shops and restuarants of Shattuck Avenue in central Berkeley, the Downtown Berkeley Inn is the perfect place for anyone who wants comfort and quiet at a value price. My ground level room was quite large with a king-sized platform bed, large flat-screen TV, spacious bathrrom, makeup area and decent sized desk to work from. The location of the property is across from the Berkeley High School, which makes for quiet nights with little activity in the vacinity. There are any number of good places to eat within three or four easy blocks from the Inn and Berkeley's two largest cinemas are just a block and a half away. The Downtown Berkeley Inn is family-owned and managed which makes for a welcoming personal experience. The Inn also offers free parking for about ten cars, so if you drive in, get there early to secure a space. While not luxurious or even up-scale, I found the Downtown Berkeley Inn to be a perfect place to stay for a quiet, secluded get away without any hassle.
