Clean sheets, Clean rooms and very clean bathroom! Definitely recommend this hotel as compared to staying in San Francisco. It is a perfect location if you are visiting San Francisco, Napa Valley as well as areas in the Bay Area.

The hotel is quite nice for the area it's in. Price is a bit high but compared to others in the area, the quality is far superior for the price. The staff is wonderful, helpful, and courteous. Breakfast is great and a nice option. Prefer the bathroom fan to be optional. It's quite annoying to be on constantly.

I stay here often when I come to the Bay Area on business. The neighborhood isn't the greatest, but the hotel is clean and friendly, and pet-friendly, and the rate is reasonable for its location. Though it is an older building, the rooms are updated and well-kept.

We did not know it was "graduation" that Saturday at Berkeley and we got the jacked-up price on Thursday night. It was $224.00. It is on a very busy street. I guess we should feel lucky we found a room for one night. But I am pretty sore about the price.

This was one of the few places still available for graduation weekend, so we gritted our teeth and reserved, despite worries about noise based on prior reviews. We were very pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. We did pay top dollar for this room (why wouldn't they charge top dollar for the most popular weekend of the year?), but we...

I don't understand hotels being as noisy as they are. This La Quinta had heavy clunking doors that even the most considerate guest would have to be careful closing to keep from disturbing neighbors. On a busy night with families occupying a number of rooms there is a chorus of banging doors through the night. The hotel further contributes to...

I have to say that the room was wonderful but the service was horrible and the room still had some uncleanness but when I asked I was blown off and I was sleeping so good. When the maid just let herself in and not even minutes later a employee who is a man banged on my door. So long story...

I didn't have much contact with reception because I was a guest of my cousins at this hotel. We stayed only 1 Saturday night. The parking lot was full when we pulled it but there was extra parking in the back. The hotel looked a little aged and worrisome from the busy street but surprisingly the rooms were clean and...
