A
9.1 Excellent
Pros:My boyfriend and I came to Berkeley to see a concert at the Greek Theatre and the Knights Inn was the perfect place to stay. It's within walking distance of a bunch of places to eat and is also about a mile/mile and a half away form the Telegraph and UC Berkeley. Management was very nice. Although the rooms are a little small, they were very clean and seemed recently updated. There's free parking right outside your room which was a major plus. The environment was decently quiet besides the traffic. Definitely worth the price.
A
8.0 Great
Pros:Close to downtown Berkeley. Clean. Great water pressure in the shower.
Cons:Could use another chair in the room.
A
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Very focused on customer satisfaction. Nice healthy breakfast.
Cons:All good.
D
8.2 Great
Pros:The room was basically clean and included a good selection of amenities like a fridge and microwave. There are several restaurants within walking distance, plus a BART (subway) station, and there's a Zipcar parking lot right next to the motel for those who can use them.
Cons:It's a little far from downtown, but still not bad. Also, this is a minor thing, but in many cases if I wasn't out of the room by 9 AM or so, it wouldn't get cleaned. The front lobby has very little space, and parking is cramped.
