I was looking for a reasonable place to stay while visiting San Francisco and this is definitely the place! I was looking at the reviews and this one stood out from the rest simply because the manager of this hotel responds to the posts here and tries to resolve any concerns which I thought was quite noble. So I booked...

We were visiting UC-Berkeley and this was a close place. My main criteria are clean rooms with a shower (also clean). And this was. And it was close to the University (about a 5 minute drive). And I should add it is only 3 blocks from the BART (public transportation). It is a motel, but not that loud. The rooms...

Stayed here for about a week for a wedding. Room clean, bed comfortable, adequate lighting, TV excellent quality, breakfast satisfactory and there was fresh fruit and brewed decaf which not every motel has. Would stay here again anytime. Only wish all Rodeway Inns were like this one! As our others have said, the motel isn't directly on University Avenue. Quiet...

We stayed here two nights during a recent trip. The hotel entrance is on University Avenue, but the rooms are back in off of the street in a u-shaped configuration. The result is a nice quiet location with very little street noise. The room was clean and the motel appeared to be well maintained. We had a problem with our...

Fountain Hills, Arizona
Reviewed 13 July 2012

Stayed at the Rodeway Inn for two nights while my daughter was visiting Cal. I gave the motel 5 stars because for what it is, a basic motel, it deserves 5 stars. I paid $67 a night for a clean, very decent room. The motel is well kept and the breakfast, while limited, served our needs. It was very quiet...

I stayed there for 1 night when traveling in Berkeley. The place was a bit nicer than the usual motel type, but I would say not as nice as some of the reviewers seem to indicate. The room was clean, located close to the Bart station, and had great Thai food just next door. That being said, this was not...

We chose this hotel for our family based on its positive reviews and proximity to San Francisco and BART. When we arrived at the hotel at 4 pm and were standing in the courtyard we could hear unsavory screaming and moaning from one of the rooms, thru closed windows and doors. My 13-year-old thought someone was being stabbed, my 10-year-old...

This is a fine if fairly basic hotel: not much by way of luxury. I asked for a quiet room, and they kindly gave me one away from the road. The staff was nice, and for me, the location was perfect--near to BART and also some work I had to do in the area. Nice to have the kitchenette facilities,...

Heading to Berkeley for one night I booked the Rodeway Inn after reading the good reviews on Trip Advisor. I'm sorry to say my experience was not as good as others had. The hotel is the equivalent to a Motel 6, which is fine for one night, but when I called to book a room the price I given was...
