"Worst customer service - ever"

Stay away!!! During recent stay we dropped an item of clothing in lobby while leaving for the day. Called shortly thereafter and was told it was in the lost and found. Went back three times in two days to front desk to claim item. All three times was told that it was locked up and that no one was available with the key. They never once had offered to bring it to the room (as other hotels have done in the past). After leaving early the next morning, still no locked up clothing, the hotel was called. At that time they kept insisting that I would now have to pay to get it shipped to me. They stopped returning my calls and my calls to Corporate were no help since this particular La Qunita is independently owned. PS. Food was very poor quality too....

"Old decayed motel, not so much value for money"

+ The rooms were big ( we occupied a room with a king bed and a room with two queen beds ), the beds were perfect, the breakfast was not bad ( + scrambled eggs, sausages, freshly baked waffles, - coffee made from a coffee sirop). - There was a prevailing chemical odor ( opening windows did not help ), the carpet floor was a bit sticky, doors are old. Local friends told us the place is a bad neighbourhood. Conclusion: this is a rundown motel that charges way too much.

"One of the better ones"

We stayed 3 nights at this Hotel as part of the start of our West Coast road trip (2 childhood friends). The rooms are descent and clean, big enough and the 2 queen size beds where great. The carpet of the general hallway was dirty but we didnt really care. The location was perfect for us. A short trip over the bay bridge and you can explore San Francisco (stop at treasure island) but its also great to go to the north east as we visited lake tahoe. The breakfast was one of the best we had our entire roadtrip! The free wifi was also a plus because it was fast en workung fine. Parking space at the back. To be honest, this hotel is not cheap when on a budget as part of a roadtrip. Another negative is the so called gym. A total of some cardio trainin equipment is not the same as a gym and the lack of weightlifting gear made us skip gymtime in total. In conlusion: + Rooms big enough and good beds + Breakfast was super + Location is great to explore when having a car - Not cheap if you are on a thight budget - Fitness/gym only consists of some cardio equipment

"Same cost as Super-8 much MUCH nicer"

They don't do any of the penalty charges the Travel Lodge does to people who pay with a debit card. In the Berkeley location it's the same average per night as any of the other hotels/motels in the area. The beds are nice and firm. The room was comfortable, classy even. It even had a balcony sliding glass door that (!) actually opens. Free parking.

"Berkeley or bust!"

This is a really classic but aged hotel. It has a roman column style with tapestry furnishings. I love the foliage and landscape. I guess I'm a bit of a naturalist. There was a great tree that looked like it was wearing a hat. I liked the presence of dogs. I like animals and it was good that the hotel allowed the. The cable was awesome as well as the tv. I didn't like that I had to go to the second floor from the 3rd floor to get ice. Then when I got to the 2nd floor the machine barely yielded ice.
