This hotel was excellent for a short term business trip. The property was recently renovated and extremely clean compared to other inns I have stayed at. The front desk staff is very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was available in the morning. Receptionist was very accommodating and suggested great areas to eat and visit. This stay was during local business event...

The hotel's location is quite good. Close to Bart and shops in Berkeley. My room was surprisingly really nice and modern. This was not what I was expecting from looking at the hotel outside. The room was clean, modern and despite being by the road, very quiet. The problem with this hotel is the front desk staff. The front desk...

We are very disappointed that you didn't have a fantastic time with us, albeit our location suited you so well.

The room was well furnished and had plenty of charging ports, including USB plugs. The shower was also a welcome sight as it had a modern tile finish. My only gripes are the limited parking and lack of lobby/ breakfast options. But even with that it is a stones throw from a few good dining options.

I was extremely impressed by the accommodations at Travelodge Berkeley. Not what I expected at all. I thought it would be like Motel 6, bare bones accomodations. Rooms were clean, amenities were numerous, and I had an awesome night's sleep. I'd stay here again, not just because it's centrally located, but it is a great value for what you do...

They kept 50 dollars of my deposit because of some blood on the towels! If you're on your period, don't take a shower cause you'll pay for staining their towels. Humiliating, sexist, and highly embarrassing!!!! Shame on you!!
