The Bay Area in general is pricey for hotels, and Berkeley is no exception. We were visiting family in immediately adjacent Oakland for a 3-day weekend at the end of January 2013. My searches of affordable lodging was pretty bleak -- beware the extra charges for parking at most places, including valet-only parking at some. I was pleased to find... More

I was very satisfied with this Rodeway Inn and I'm picky when comes to where I stay. Good price, room had minor wear & tear, but clean, no funny smells, good wi-fi, liked that property was off street a bit, parking is in middle, rooms surround parking lot. Property is well maintained. Guy checking us in was nice and helpful.... More

This motel is clean and the service is wonderful. Some of the furniture is older, and some in need of repair, but the staff is terrific and will help with any problem you have.

For the price, this place is a pretty strong contender - the rooms are very clean and neat, including the bathroom. Everything was in working order and appeared well-tended.

The Rodeway Inn is located on University Ave, about one mile west of UCB and one mile east of I-80. It is also 3 blocks south of the North Berkeley BART station, although one should be cautious and vigilant walking about this neighborhood at night. The motel is a late 1950's California-style 44-room single story urban motel which has had... More

I stayed at the Rodeway Inn for 12 nights while working in a lab at Berkeley. The immediate draw for me was the price: my extended stay garnered me a significant discount, and I ended up paying about $700 (with tax) for the duration.
