I was traveling to Berkeley, and did not book a room in advance. I arrived late, they had just one room available here. Overall it is OK. Note that it's a It is a motel. My a room was on the ground floor, handicapped room. The seal on the door wasn't great. You could see a little light coming under...

My wife and I just stayed at this hotel to attend my son's graduation from UC Berkeley. He received his PhD so this was a very important trip for us. We were also in the bay area to spend time with our daughter and other son who live in Concord and San Francisco respectively. This was actually my second stay...

The heater did not work in my room. They gave me another room, it smelled of smoke even though this is a "no smoking" hotel. The sheets were dirty. the bedside light did not work. The breakfast room and tables were dirty, even though I was the first in there. This place is a disaster. Stay somewhere else!

We were visiting a relative during Thanksgiving week 2016. We landed at the Oakland airport and drove the rental car to this hotel. We stayed in room 111, which is one of the two first floor rooms visible in the picture. Check in: We were able to check in to a room early. Yay. We were the first new guests...

Room was nice, bed was huge, and I felt safe in the area. The parking onsite is a plus. Very close to everything in Berkeley, and the restaurant/bar right next door was great and convenient. Only downside - not much protection from outside noises. I never heard anything coming from the rooms on either side or below mine, but noises...

What a nice continental breakfast. Very nice. Nothing gourmet or ritzy. Just yummy! Coffee with varieties is always available. Front desk guys are always polite. Pillows could be bigger. Thanks again Quality Inn!

On the second night of my stay, right as I was about to go to bed, I discovered a bed bug crawling on my pillow. I went to tell the management, and they were not very helpful. They moved me to another room, but did not seem very concerned.

Bed is comfortable but not enough furniture. Bathroom is clean and shower works great. Vanity is small with tiny place to put your staff. Location is convenient. Breakfast is so-so. Both egg and sausage taste artificial. I skip breakfast the second day.

Looking for somewhere close to Oakland, but avoiding downtown prices driven up by a convention I found the Quality Inn in Berkeley. This is fairly standard Motel fare. The room was fairly small, occupied mostly by the king size bed. But otherwise comfortable. With a slight 'Motel Room Oder', but not overpowering. Small desk and reliable wifi provided a good...

We spent the day in San Francisco. While we were trying to get out of the city the traffic was horrible so we decided to grab a room. Found this place on a website and the reviews were favorable so we booked. The favorable reviews were spot on. The room was clean and comfortable. A little small, but very nice....
