    Very good

    Convenient location. Curtains blacked out the room reasonably well.

    Coffee/tea at breakfast was poor.

    Superb

    We liked its convenience to the University of California at Berkeley.

    I would have preferred a heater in the bathroom.

    The breakfast was spectacular for an essentially b&b economy facility. The location is convenient for Berkeley. The computer and printer were great for printing my boarding pass.

    Fabulous

    The rooms were clean; the service was friendly and accommodating, and knowledgeable. The complimentary breakfast was convenient. The location was convenient for our purposed (near the Cal campus.) Free parking in a safe parking lot.

    The business office for guests was very sparse... 1 computer, although it was not crowded when I was there -- but if someone wanted to use a computer for any length of time, it would be uncomfortable. There is no coffee shop there or near by to visit with guests / family members.

    Breakfast was good, room was fine.

    there was a problem checking in, Booked.net according to the staff listed the room under Wm Jackson(guest), not Lydia Bourne. In spite of giving them my confirmation number, which they said was Booked.net's number and it didn't show in their system. This is the first time something like this happened, is there an explanation for Booked.net not to have the information correct and for the confirmation number to be associated with the guest name and not the person making the reservation?

    Superb

    This was the best value-for-money hotel of five we stayed in during our three weeks in the USA. Clean, great rooms, fine breakfast and a very friendly staff. We would definitely use this hotel again and recommend it to friends.

    No restaurant or room service, no bell boys - but these were minor inconveniences.

    Spacious room with a kitchenette that included a microwave and refrigerator. Decent breakfast. Staff opened breakfast early on the weekend to accommodate several guests that needed to leave prior to the normal breakfast start time.

    Room was a little noisy with a drain spout nearby and people walking above. Requested late checkout but only received an extra 30 minutes.
