"I have stayed here many times in the past 7 years while attending workshops in Berkeley. If you need new furnishings and spotless conditions this is not the place for you, but if you are OK with some imperfections it is a great value for the money. The rooms are well cleaned, safe, and have a fridge and microwave. The family managing the hotel is friendly and helpful. Enterprise auto rental is just two doors down the street, and North Berkeley BART station is less than a 15 minute walk."
