I arrived in the late afternoon in January and discovered that the heater in my room was broken. I immediately pointed it out at the reception and I was given excuses and false promises about it getting repaired later on. Forty minutes later nothing happened. I was not going to freeze all night. I found another hotel nearby and I told them that I was moving out and told them not to dare to bill me. They did bill me, an now I'm fighting with Amex for a reimbursement. Had the receptionist told me honestly that it was broken and could not be repaired until the following day, had he proposed for some discount, I would have accepted the offer of a space heater, which he made well into the conversation.

Would definitely stay here again! We arrived in Berkeley earlier than anticipated just before noon, so we thought we'd stop by the hotel to see if we could at least drop off our luggage. It was just after 12 pm when we made our luggage drop-off inquiry in the hotel front office. The desk attendant told us that if we didn't mind taking an upstairs room we could check-in right then--and so we did! The room was pleasant, VERY clean with no strange or stale odors. Bed was extremely comfortable with snow-white, crisp, fresh linens. Microwave and mini-fridge in the room. Shower was ultra clean, modern and spacious with decent water pressure and good lighting. Considering the University Ave. location was very quiet at night. Trader Joe's at the end of the block and many good eateries along the avenue. Thank you, Berkeley Travelodge for a most excellent accommodation!

Location was great but mostly like that rooms were totally remodeled, modern and very clean. Felt definite pride by housekeepers to keep rooms clean and presentable.

DownTown Budget Hotel

Pros: Main street. Easy checkin / check out. Remodeling in progress, but we got one of the remodeled rooms, so very nice.
Cons: Breakfast could start at 6:00. That seems more in line with people having to be somewhere at 8:00.
Location: Down town. Walk to restaurants and shopping. Walk to UC Berkeley.
Nice room. Newly remodeled. Everything seemed NEW. Breakfast starts at 7:00. Too late for workers :-(. Close to downtown restaurants -walking distance. Limited parking.

It does the job!

I was actually pretty happy with my stay. It was clean and I felt that I had all of the amenities that I needed. The area is fine, but I would have felt a little safer if the deadbolt on my door hadn't been noticeably torn off. I just needed a decent place to crash and this place did the job.

Adequate for my needs, convenient, clean, strong Wifi

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Poor breakfast
This hotel is pretty much a clean bed and place to sleep, located a good distance from the campus and BART.
