We used to visit friends in Berkeley often. Over several years, we used to stay at the Golden Bear Inn (also called ‚??Americas Best Value Inn‚??. It was cheap and fairly priced for a marginal motel. With time, it has raised its prices but not increased the quality of the stay. For the price, it is simply a poor choice for a place to stay. More than half of the rooms are noisy from highway traffic. The water pressure is inadequate; you can start a shower and if someone nearby starts a shower or ... Read more

Homeless seem to stay here. There was a car parked next to ours that was filled with empty bottles. On one of the benches outside of the room, there was a barefooted homeless guy smoking a cigarette. In our room, it smelled strange. Our impression was that something happened in the room and they tried to use cleaners to cover the smell. When my wife noticed that there was a plastic bag tied around the smoke detector, we got the hotel attendant to look at it. At first she was surprised, but quick... Read more

I've used this hotel for a number of business trips recently and found the rooms clean, and accommodating to my needs. I particularly like the refrigerator in my room, and that each room is unique. The front desk staff has been also helpful in recommending great places to eat around town. Easy on/off from the highway, and close to the University this is convenient to my needs. In addition, there are many restaurants, coffee shops, supermarkets, and fun activities in any direction.

Very clean, well maintained property with a helpful friendly staff. A refreshing experience. Restaurants and shopping are close. Great place for breakfast across the street. Ask the front staff for directions. We'll make a point on staying there again next time we are in town.

This little motel is outdated and needs to update outlets to hold plugged devices but that is really my only complaint, water was hot, room was clean, no bug bites, and air that worked. We chose this thru Hotwire and proximity to the train station. Hotwire auto assigns a single room with them but they quickly set up q cot and did not charge extra so I give them a 4. Wifi was also decent!

My daughter and I have been on a week-long trip that began in the LA area and included hotels in various touristy locations. The Golden Bear had TripAdvisor reviews on a par with most of the other hotels, but ended up costing more than the others while delivering less. As a result, we feel we grossly overpaid for this place. The desk agent who checked us in was quite nice. That's the good news. Based on others' reviews, I'm guessing there might be rooms at this motel that are OK...but it's har... Read more

We were told in advance that the neighborhood was "edgy" but experienced no safety problems at all. Quiet and clean with comfortable beds, lovely toiletries, great service and free parking. A few blocks from Whole Foods where we ate breakfast daily. Affordable basic accommodations in an expensive part of the state. Please note: We were initially offered a room with an unpleasant odor but were immediately given a different room at our request. Also: Yes, homeless people are everywhere in Berkel... Read more

A very old and seedy property, definitely limit your stay to one night. Filthy carpets, linens, and bathroom. No air con, limited internet, and a clientele that will make you want to run away. Never again!

I enjoyed the walkable location on San Pablo Avenue and was able to visit many shops and restaurants that were good. The front office staff were friendly and helpful. The room was basic and clean. We stayed in the single level portion and parking was convenient outside our door. I would return because of price, location and the kindness of the staff.

This is a mom and pop motel. For the area, which is very expensive, it is not bad. I would certainly recommend if you are just passing through for the night. I was in town for business and the wifi was out the entire time I was there. And, while the room was clean, it was very outdated. It was a no frills type of stay. There was a microwave and fridge in the room. The neighborhood was great though with lots of food and the university nearby.
