Blessing in Berkeley A review of Downtown Berkeley Inn
Our son has been attending Berkeley for three years now. So, we've stayed in Berkeley at various hotels. This place really is a blessing for the City of Berkeley not only because it is brand new but it really fits the diversity and philosophy of the city. It is as nice as it is unique, small family owned business. Most other places in Berkeley are old and we had regretted staying in other places. The Holiday Inn Express is new, but the rooms are very small and is not as convenient as Downtown Berkeley Inn (it's a short walk from campus). The beds are quiet and comfortable and with the foam mattresses (which we have owned at home for a few years now) you are not disturbed at all when your partner moves or gets up. We felt right at home with the furnishing. The rooms are very spacious and the designers have made very efficient use of the space. Of course, where have you ever seen 42" high definition plasma TV in a hotel room? Our son really enjoyed that! The place is very quiet in a light traffic area and the staff is very helpful and friendly. At an affordable price in Berkeley, we will definitely stay here every time we visit Berkeley. In fact, we'd recommend anyone visiting Berkeley or Bay Area to stay here. Thanks Downtown Berkeley Inn.
