Good for its price range. Motel is on the edge of downtown Berkeley. Rooms were recently renovated so are in good condition.

This was hands down the nicest Travelodge I have ever stayed in. Rooms were not only exquisitely clean, but bright and cozy. The bathrooms look like they've been newly remodeled: walk in shower and a fancy shower head. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Honestly I just picked staying here because it was less expensive than other similar properties and...

The motel has doors that open to the outside which is never my favorite kind of place to stay, but with that said, the room was very nice and clean and the maid service was fantastic. My one problem with the stay was that the wi-fi was impossible to use as the signal was too weak.

The deposit was taken from a debit card without my knowledge and the front desk agent was not helpful in getting it back to me, even after knowing that I did not consent to using that specific card and that was most of my birthday money..

We are very sorry that you experienced issues around your deposit. It appears that your reservation may have been made through one of our booking partners, who would have taken the deposit, not us. Unfortunately, in this situation, there is nothing that we can do, as we have not taken or received the deposit. We trust that you enjoyed your...

I went into the hotel without expecting anything. Here are the plus points. The hotel has been remodeled recently and the room looked very good inside (#212). The fixtures are great and the bed is very comfortable. Space is a little less. The bathroom was also new and had a standing shower, good water pressure and nice hot water. So...

This is a mixed review -- I give it an average rating because the place is very nice and has been remodeled. When I say nice, I mean that for budget accommodation it was remodeled, very clean and well kept. I made the reservation through the hotel chain website and has a total of $170.86 for two days but my...

While the hotel isn't too impressive on the outside, the location, free parking, and fantastically renovated rooms made this stay great.
