It is not fancy, in fact it is a simple place, but it is clean, the room has enough space and has an excellent location.

Close to the hotel it is very easy to find places to shop, restaurants, bars and very close to the BART station, to go to San Francisco.

I was traveling for work and stayed there for 6 nights, I didn't have anything to complain about, the cleaning lady kept my room clean and tidy everyday and she was always adding/replacing the towels and the bed sheets. The guys at the front desk were always very friendly and happy to answer all my questions about everything.
I definitely recommend this place :)

Everything went well, staff friendly, room very comfortable. TV great, only problem is that you don't have control of turning on the heat in your room. Was a little cool in the morning. People tend to spend too much time in the parking lot at night.

Room Tip: Please let the guest control the heat in the rooms

What can you expect when you choose to get the cheapest hotel in Berkeley? Yes even though the price STILL seems expensive, it is one of the cheapest. You're going to get a dated hotel that is not going to compete with La Quinta or Holiday Inn.

Stayed in the hotel for 6 nights and found it....quaint. It was a bed to sleep on at night, but don't expect much more than that. Not the best bed in the world, but definitely not the best. No tub, but a very small shower (with a shower head about 5 1/2 feet from the floor. I'm 5' 8" and had to duck to wash my hair.

There is NO AC in the rooms. There is a fan only. For the most part in Berkeley that would be all you need, but with the recent heat waves, it can be uncomfortable.

TheBearGM, General Manager at Americas Best Value Inn, responded to this reviewResponded 13 September 2017

Thanks for your feedback. Our staff doesn't actually arrive until 9am and renovations don't start until after 10am, figuring guest are up by then. I apologize if that was not the case in this instance. There's never a good time for renovation noise, it's a situation that is difficult to maneuver around. I'll check on our housekeeping staff's following procedures for do not disturb signs on doors, they shouldn't be bothering anyone in that case. Sorry for this inconvenience.

Sincerely,

Chris Koertge
General Manager
Americas Best Value Inn- Golden Bear Inn Berkeley
