"We went up to Berkeley to catch a college football game. UCLA was in town and other hotels close to the Berkeley campus were charging $350-400/night with a minimum 3 night stay! C'mon man! The Berkeley Inn had availability and a great room rate of about $69/night.
Find a parking spot in the lot during the day and use public transportation or walk otherwise you risk parking somewhere outside of the Berkeley Inn's parking lot when you return in the evening and all of the spots are taken.
