Wanted a hotel walking distance to UC Berkeley and this was the closest I could find. The room was not very clean and smelled. The desk clerk was not friendly and gave me my room key and walked away. Breakfast was sub standard continental breakfast.

We were looking for convenient and cheap for an eight-day Christmas stay and we found it. The bed was big, but the room was small. Shower water was hot and ample. The free breakfast only allows you to avoid starvation, but it will not poison you. Sometimes I had to call the front desk clerk on my cell phone, he was nice enough to put my Wall Street Journal in the office until I retrieved it.

My daughter lives in SF, and I was visiting her for her birthday. I stay in Berkeley due to motel cost. The Quality in offered a comfortable room for my stay. The parking was good. It was within walking distance to BART and downtown Berkeley (I take BART to SF). Everyone was friendly this motel offered a good base of operation for my visit.
