Travel Blogs from Berkeley
... Francisco was a startling sight, and one which we were very excited to see as we traveled through Oakland and into Berkeley. The highway got smaller and smaller, and soon we pulled off into the residential neighborhood in which we were to be staying with a friend of my father's. Brendan had done a lot of research on Berkeley during the winter when we were first envisioning our move, and we knew that it is a very bicycle-friendly city, with bike lanes on every ...
No matter how many times I've flown now, I never tire of looking out the window of the plane at the world below. There's something about looking out and down at the world and realizing how big and vast, how different each place is. Our flight out of Vancouver was delayed to not the fog in San Francisco but rather a runway closure. As I tell my friends though, and sometimes they've reminded me, things happen for a reason.
The shuttle wound its way through the streets of ...
... travel insurance, since you can pick-and-choose what goes in to your package. My medical coverage will be through Trawick, which will act as primary insurance as well!
For while I'm on the road, I want to implement some personal safety items as well. I am looking into a pepper spray that can be worn on my belt at all times. I'm going to invest in one of those cash-concealer belts too...just in case. ...
... shops that have sampler menus. We chose two shops, the first which seemed nicer didn't really have any wines any of us liked. The second was much better, with several wines we could have all bought. Faye and joe found some wine they both really enjoyed and bought a bottle for Joe to take home. Being sensible, alex decided it wasn't best to be lugging a bottle of wine around the rest of America and South America. After our wine tasting, we had planned to have a BBQ at the motel ...
... we were on the road again! There is a familiar comfort to Erica and I being packed into the truck and heading down the road. It's almost therapeutic. We decided the night before that we would drive to San Francisco, and we decided, with some guidance from William, to take the coastal route HWY 1. It was amazing! I saw a bunch of dirt pull-offs to park and walk down to little beach areas along the drive, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rodeway Inn Berkeley
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.
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.
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!
