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.
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.
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!

Olivia missed just about everything, especially her friends and Brown Doggie. Elias seemed pretty content with a pound of Legos, 2 foam swords, an inflatable globe ball and a frisbee… and of course, his iPod, which he won inexplicably in an read-a-thon in first grade.
We went on the trip to shake up the routine, but we did missed what one gains from having a ...

And when this spectacular festival came to a close with fireworks and a solitary bugler playing taps, by all accounts, the crowds wept.But when the exposition ended, the Palace lived on — saved from demolition by the Palace Preservation League, founded by Phoebe Apperson Hearst, while the fair ...
... 15. We weren't entirely sure what to expect, but holy cow, it was awesome! Imagine the Science Centre times 1000. We all loved it! I'm not sure who was the bigger kid - my son, my daughter, or my husband? There were so many hands-on activities. We drank out of a toilet, watched a Slinky work out on a treadmill, and played with massive bubbles and a really cool mirror. (I feel I must explain the toilet - it was an exploration into how the mind processes information - would ...
... layover, the 5 hours+ to San Francisco were rather interesting. The young lady who sat next to me in the 3rd seat was Cassie, a Clearwater Christian College student, going home to CA to visit family. She was quite mature and friendly and it was actually her 18th birthday. The young woman across the aisle from John was heading to CA for her sister's wedding and was struggling with writing her speech. The lady ...
... Street (the famous crooked street) and then jumped on another cable car and rode on the running boards down the steep San Fran streets....exhilarating! We had a great night out at a little Greek restaurant where you had to wait and 'grab' a table. We ended up sitting with some San Fran girls.....we had a brilliant night with them, going out for drinks after dinner. Off to Canada ...
