"Close to BART and the freeway. More than worth the price. The hotel was clean and comfortable, and the employees were friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast was more than sufficient. We'd stay here again.2017-08-03"
"A poor hotel stay. Check-in was pathetic; my card was charged 3 times. The room was terrible and reeked of cigarette and marijuana smoke from a guest down the hallway. I asked for a refund and left right away. Don't stay here.2021-10-05"
"A bare-bones hotel with poor soundproofing. Not a good neighborhood. The room didn't have carpeting. No coffee pot or even paper cups. The front of the vanity in the bathroom was broken, and just a sliver of soap was provided. My Uber driver couldn't get through the locked gate to get me; I had to go out of the gate and stand in the rain to wait for him. I had an awful stay.2019-04-07"
"We were given a clean, upgraded room with a great view and nice balcony. Great food and bartender, and the price was unbeatable. Breakfast was super. I definitely recommend this hotel, and I liked that it was pet-free. Ask for a water view.2016-03-28"

"Conveniently located. Clean, good-sized room. The only problem was that neither elevator worked, and my room was on the 4th floor. Wear comfortable shoes since there's a lot of walking and there are many hills.2015-10-13"
"The hotel was close to campus. Clean room with comfortable beds. Nice staff. We were on the 6th floor, and the elevators were slow, but we were happy here. The complimentary breakfast and wine and cheese happy hour were appreciated. Don't hesitate to book a room here. 2015-09-29"
"We stayed here for a week. Convenient to UC Berkeley, BART, and restaurants. The hotel was relatively quiet, the staff was helpful, and the on-site restaurant was interesting. Worth the additional cost. We'll be back.2015-09-04"
"Lovely hotel room. The lobby is small, and not a place where you can hang out unless you want to sit in the restaurant or bar.2015-04-22"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
