    Historical Traveler Reviews Rodeway Inn Berkeley

    Newly renovated and wonderful

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Quiet

    from

    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.

    Ruhig

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    from

    I like Berkeley Travel Inn.

    I will stay here again.

    Nice Place

    from

    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

    from

    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!!!"

    from

    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!

    The Waterfront Walk

    ... Having walked UP & UP & UP Lombard Street to the top (at 40 degrees slope), it was a major disappointment to see that the 'curly' part of the street only went for ONE block! Ripped Off...LOL!! Despite it being winter and no flowers in bloom in the 'bed's aligning the road, this 'attraction' was not worth the climb! Yet there were about 50 other people standing at the top of the Street taking pictures - I didn't even get my camera out!!

    ... that struck me -- push your boundaries, because it is on the edges that transformation occurs. Perhaps that's why a two week vacation was not enough for us. To transform we needed to pull up the stakes and journey around the world on our own.

    Much love to everyone who travel with us through our blog and emailed and Skyped with us throughout our journey. All of you is what made coming home so sweet.

    Another meager and random product of evolution, thrown in the vast land of San Francisco, California. Aspirations growing stronger and larger with every step in this city. From arrival, rain was heavy and we were more than lost without our mums. Although the flight was delayed by one hour due to the actual door being broken, we felt as though if our mums were there, somehow the plane would have been fine. I slept for about 3hrs, and the rest of the time was ...

    ... San Fran. We did go to the top of one of the cliffs so that we had a very good view over the bay - shame the sun wasn't out!

    Once we were back at Union Square we decided to head to The Cheesecake Factory above Macy's and have a spot of lunch before doing a bit of shopping. The food and service - as always - was amazing. We had their 30th anniversary cheesecake and it was amazing - worth trying for sure!

    ... attempts and what life was like on the inside. It was all there. We saw the cells used in the "Escape from Alcatraz". We went inside the claustrophobic solitary cells.

    After a thoroughly informative and enjoyable few hours on the Rock we climbed aboard for the boat trip home, tucking into our packed lunch as we watched the city get closer.

    From the Alcatraz trip we went on to Ripley's Believe It or Not "Odditorium". Robert ...
