      Historical Traveler Reviews Rodeway Inn Berkeley

      Newly renovated and wonderful


      We have now stayed at the Rodeway Inn in Berkeley three visits in the past nine months. The new owners have put a lot into the place. It was spotless. My wife has serious allergies (we always travel with an air filter) but despite all new furniture, bedding, and paint, she had no problems. Before renovations it looked like a flophouse; now it's immaculate.

      There is wireless, a small refrigerator with enough freezer space to freeze blue ice, and a microwave. The bathrooms are tiled. The continental breakfast is better than most, offering cereal with milk, toast and English muffins, fruit choices, etc.

      Our daughter is a senior at UC Berkeley, so we've spent a lot of hotel nights in the area. There are AAA discounts. The newly renovated Rodeway Inn is now our hotel of choice.

      And the Thai restaurant in front is one of the best we know; we've been eating there on visits to a nearby friend for years.

      Una buena elección


      Mi mujer y yo estuvimos aquí alojados 3 noches.

      Las habitaciones son pequeñas y las toallas de baño también. Pero por lo demás este sitio está muy bien. Y el precio es bueno.

      El hotel se encuentra en una calle muy transitada. Sin embargo dentro de las habitaciones se oye muy poquito ruido.

      Hay un supermercado (caro) y una fantástica panadería en la acera de enfrente y una cafetería al lado. Hay un restaurante tailandés y otro italiano a unos pasos. Y la estacíón del BART se encuentra a un corto paseo de tres manzanas.

      Good Choice


      My wife and I stayed here for three nights.

      The rooms are small, and so are the bath towels. But otherwise, this place is nice. And the price is right.

      The hotel is right on a busy street. But inside the rooms, there's very little noise.

      There's a grocery store (expensive) and a nice bakery across the street, and a coffee shop next door. There's a Thai restaurant and an Italian restaurant just steps away. And the BART station is a short three-block walk.



      Very quiet and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. I could hear a far away train in the early morning (though not loud enough to wake me), and there weren't a lot of eating places within walking distance. My room had a micro and fridge but lacked a coffee maker and iron. Overall a good stay.



      Sehr ruhig und sauber. Die Angestellten waren freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ich konnte früh morgens den Zug aus der Ferne hören (war aber nicht laut genug, um mich zu wecken) und es gab nicht viele Restaurants, die zu Fuß erreichbar waren. Mein Zimmer verfügte über eine Mikrowelle, aber nicht über eine Kaffeemaschine und ein Bügeleisen. Insgesamt ein guter Aufenthalt.

      A good experience


      The Travel Inn was undergoing renovation during my stay, and the owners made every effort to make sure my needs were taken care of.

      I guess they're turning it into a Rodeway Inn, and they've done a nice job. The rooms and bedding are good quality. Close to lots of restauarants.

      It's still an urban hotel, so take a seasoned traveller's advice, bring the earplugs.

      A good value.

      I like it.


      I like Berkeley Travel Inn.

      I will stay here again.

      Nice Place


      I stayed at travel inn berkeley for a week when I was doing work for the Lab. great value for the price, clean & quite place. will stay here again.

      Over-priced budget hotel


      Stayed here in August 2001 and May 2004. Motor inn layout, single-storey, free parking, rose bushes around carpark. High-security reception - hotel manager hides behind glass window. Have to pay in advance every day. 10min walk to BART station (access to San Francisco, SFO airport). 30min walk to fringe of UC Berkeley campus. Thai restaurant at entrance, Andronico supermarket across the street University Avenue. Several hotels in vicinity (Capri, Holiday Inn Express, Travelodge, University Inn, Campus). Old, needs renovations, provides only bare room, soap and towel. Bathroom floor extremely slippery when wet. No airconditioner or other amenities. Noise of train from rear. Paid $65 (incl. tax) per night - overpriced. Probably the only hotel with drop-in vacancy during UC Berkeley's starting of academic year and Commencement. If you want a better hotel during these periods, book the other hotels at least 1 month in advance.

      "Never again at the Berkeley Travel Inn!!!"


      On a trip to Berkeley,we spent a horrible night at the Berkeley Travel Inn. It is noisy and dirty. The bedding is very old, and the service is even worse. I've never regretted an experience so much!

      ... night for speaking with other people all in all!

      Thursday I had a bit of a lazy day, I was pretty exhausted from the late night. I did wander down to the piers and have a look at the inside market. There was a whole shop full of gluten free things which was pretty cool. I got a sandwich for my lunch and sat by the water in the sunshine. I could feel the fingers of homesickness poking at me. Those nasties. I went back to the hostel ...

      ... for the Levis Strauss headquarters and Levis museum. This was really interesting and the shop was good too. We took taxis via Nob Hill to get to Levis. The houses on the hill were gorgeous with fantastic views.

      We walked to the pier area and spent a few hours at Pier 39. Some great shops here selling everything from fresh fruit to leather handbags. The main attraction of Pier 39 are the seals who sun themselves on ...

      ... Along the way, we drove through Malibu (about 20 mins north along the coast from la) and had a swim for an hour or so. It was a lot colder than the warm Atlantic waters on the east coast. It was a very cool beach though, with volley ball nets, gyms,good waves and sand.

      On the way there we are followed the coast and drove along highway one. It's an absolutely amazing drive. The most impressive is the coastal views and the large, bald, desert style rock hills ...

      Our next servas hosts where we spent a couple of nights was in Santa Rosa,. They took on on a tour of their beauty spots particularly an interesting place called Bodega beach, where we had a delish clam chowder. As we were waiting for our meal we saw a couple of sea lions diving around

      We were then taken to Sebastapol where more redwoods were in an area where we could actually walk through. Such a spiritual ...

      ... plenty of quirky shops it was a nice but long walk in which I developed blisters!! Not good! We stopped in MaccyDs for a drink (1 DOLLAR!!!) before heading into golden gate park. We again walked around before ending in the conservatory of flowers and moving out towards Paradisio. Our next trek took us to Walt Disney Family Museum where we stayed for lunch before finally reaching Golden Gate Bridge shrouded in cloud. I ...
