A very nice surprise! A review of Downtown Berkeley Inn
I had never been to Berkeley before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. This is a great place to stay! The staff was very helpful and kind and the rates were very affordable! Very clean property located in downtown Berkelely; close to restaurants, movie theaters, and shops. Easy walking to campus also.
This hotel is very small, so don't expect a lobby or restaurant on site, but the location is great, so that wasn't a big deal for us. Parking is free, but minimal on the property, but there is free parking down the street or in a lot across the way. There is a Long's drug store on the corner and our favorite breakfast spot was La Note on Shattuck. Great lemon gingerbread pancakes!
We would definitely stay here again, and can't wait to do so. One small note: There is a high school across the street, so I'm not sure how that will affect the noise level or traffic once school is back in session?
