I spent 8 nights in this hotel for a business + weekend stay. I found it well-located at 5 minutes driving time to my business meeting place, also close to the entrance to the highway and not far from downtown of Berkeley. The accommodation is ok (I also had a refrigerator and a l micro-wave oven). The included breakfast is... More

Popped in for two nights for a Cal football game and stayed here. Free parking, free wifi and free breakfast included. My room was clean, bed comfy, great shower, no complaints. The front desk people were very friendly and helpful. I forgot my iPhone charger at home and they lent me one for my stay. Really kind. Will definitely stay... More

This is a great hotel that is located not too far away from the San Francisco Airport. The hotel personal is very friendly and helpful. There are several places close bye to have a good meal. I have stayed at this hotel before and also recommended it to my friends and co-workers

Yes, price seems to fluctuate but if you book in months in advance you can grab a great deal. Price was $140 a night, great location, close to the freeway and trader joes. Pro: Room was clean and the bathroom seemed updated. Room also included a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast is also... More

This hotel charges a different amount each day of your stay depending on their census. You get a very high rate if they fill up. Definitely not worth the price of admission. Breakfast is poorly done. Noisy - you can hear your neighbors clearly.

Management has built a cohesive and responsive team that will respond to any and all requests in a timely manner - frequently going WAY beyond quality service. Did not partake of morning food stuffs or coffee, so can't comment on that part of the business. Plans in the works to upgrade the washer and dryer (my only complaint).

Rooms are nice. I like the showers but mine had mildew forming in the space between the shower pan and the wall. First night there the hotel had booked a party in the banquet room and they had loud music that shook my room. Thankfully it was quiet by 10.

The hotel was reasonably priced and a great place to stay. The staff was friendly and the place felt safe and comfortable. There was easy access from the freeway. The room was clean and well decorated. It was very relaxing after a difficult business day. It was an enjoyable place to stay.

The location here is convenient to the freeway, which makes nearby places like Oakland, Marin County, The City, etc., pretty convenient. The immediate neighborhood, though, feels a little seedy. Aside from a few gas stations, there's nothing too close. After having visited other La Quintas, I can say that the breakfast here is a plus. You get all the typical... More
