    Stated above Nice furnished room, TV worked excellent, nice staff. Small room with attached bathroom with huge sauna bath. Big beds, fridge, microwave. Heater works well.

    I told the desk clerk there was a stranger hanging out in front of the hotel. He said he talked to the middle aged black man and he was " waiting for a ride" for nearly all the first afternoon and night, even when I was out at 10 p.m.; I checked in at 3 pm. Every time I went out the building the stranger ( not identified) was standing doing nothing for hours. Secondly the jets in the large bathtub were broke. Thirdly the key turned off the next morning; I had to wake up the clerk ( and wait a short time outside the office). On this day (Sunday) the strange man in the driveway was not to be seen. Footnote: the 7-11 across the street no longer serves coffee and there is no coffee or breakfast here at the motel( except in room small coffee maker and one coffee packet. Also: this review made during the covid 19 shut down/ lockdown/ shelter in and few if any businesses open in Berkeley. Aside from the above, the motel was convenient, well kept, and all other things worked. Nice rooms, nice staff.

    The room was very large and had 3 double beds. It was very clean.

    The hotel was farther from campus and the city center than we thought.
