          The Room was very clean and a very very good value for the price. Hotel Staff was Helpful.

          The Breakfast ist very poor, a Caprisun and some packed baked goods, could really work on the Breakfast options.

          Location was the best asset: you can walk to Berkeley Campus or Downtown. Free parking and internet is definitely a plus around that region.

          Out of the three times that I needed the front desk I could not find anyone twice. The lodge is noisy and I did not see breaksfast as stated at

          Location, price, wifi, parking, friendliness of front desk staff.

          Slightly noisy, and breakfast was only adequate.

          Close to trader joe's reasonable price in room coffee and breakfast danish offered they're trying ... a bit

          Place a bit run down, still adequate, but definitely has seen better days cops showed up the night I was there - on basis of some sophomoric crank calls

          Using the travelodge in London as a comparison the price was approximate the same but the expedience totally different! In London it is clean bright modern and helpful staff with excellent breakfast facilities in a world leading city. By compaison a tired poorly maintained with health and safety issues needing addressing I.E. Sink, mould, stair carpets, out of date by 4 years evacuation procedures etc. Also having to ask each day for the buffet breakfast consisting of a Capri sun drink and a processed pastry.

          The parking was very tight and limited. No coffee in the lobby. Carpet was really old and stained. Wall are not sound proof. Could hear other people talking outside, hair dryers and toilet flushing from other rooms. Comforters were very old

          This is my regular one or two night motel right at the center of Berkeley and a couple of blocks away from the Arts/Performance district and the so-called Gourmet Ghetto. It is, in their own words, a "limited service" (but therefore easily affordable) home away from home. No need for services. There is a Trader Joe's a block away, a fridge in the room, and restaurants galore within blocks. I don't want to sing the praises too much, though, so it will still be bookable.

          Location is great, very central in Berkeley, close to cafes, shops, and hwy. There is free parking and spots are available. Small fridge in the room. Beds and pillows were of really good quality which is not expected in such a budjet hotel clean

          We took two rooms, one of them was stinky the whole time, and they couldnt figure out how to fix it. No elevator, so for elder people, or handicaps is not practice at all. Breackfast is sooooo poor, there where few biscuits and juice, and milk. Thats all. No chairs no dishes, no tables, no cups.

          -Good location, within walking distance from the main facilities in Berkeley (shops, restaurants, university, Bart station, etc...).

          -Breakfast was just the same terrible packed pastry all days and you cannot have it in a common space, you have to come back in your room. -Housekeeping at 8.30 in the morning, even on Saturday and Sunday. You either wake up early or turn down room cleaning. -When the outside sprinklers run, they drain all the cold water so that it is impossible to take a shower, unless you'd like nasty burns on your body.
