      Convenient and clean place in the heart of Berkeley where our two children have attended the University. We stay there when we visit our Berkeley son.

      Good value, clean, convenient location.

      Wife awoke with insect bites. Manager claimed he was "100% sure" there are no bed bugs in the room He determined this in less than five minutes. We are not so sure despite his assurances -- how could he have determined this so quickly? People we have called to our home concerning this possibility spent at least 15 minutes examining our bedroom (and found no bed bugs). I would have felt a lot more comfortable if the manager had spent more time, had to told me what he did to make his determination. The issue is really important to us as my wife is still suffering from the bites she received. While it is not certain she received the bites in the hotel, we are not comfortable that the manager dealt with our complaint as thoroughly as he might have.

      The Holiday Inn was a few blocks away from theBART train. We were able to leave our car and take the train into San Francisco - very convenient. Very good complimentary breakfast. I would recommend staying there.

      Clean and close to uc Berkeley

      No pool or spa and their wi-fi was down for awhile

      I chose this Holiday Inn because of its location. We have stayed at other Holiday Inns and find them comfortable and convenient. The beds are usually quite nice and we also like the non-smoking policy.

      We had some difficulty with the shower being slippery but the management provided a mat and a carpet in the bathroom.

      I like the clean premises and helpful employees. The last night I was there, I needed to print out a boarding pass (to JetBlue) and the hotel's computer did not have the current software to do so. The employee on duty, a female named Amrita, first kindly tried to help update the software and when that did not work, she kindly offered to print out the boarding pass for me behind the counter. Due to her professional kindness, I left Berkeley with a boarding pass and a desire to return to this Holiday Inn Express in the future. Thanks, Amrita and Holiday Inn Express!

      Clean, good condition, good rates

      It is as ordinary as it can be.

    • Single

      Location and parking are realy the only things I can recommend here.

      Breakfast proved the adage "you get what you pay for". I would have been better off paying money at a fast food restauraunt. The staff wasn't listening to me when I complained about not being able to call the front desk because the phone was not properly programmed, and when I complained about the lack of hot water in the mornings, I got attitude from the woman at the front desk.
