Pros: Cleanliness, Location and price. I have stayed in similarly-priced hotels in Berkeley which were neither clean nor friendly.
Cons: Everything was exactly was needed.
Location: Downtown Berkeley is nearby with many restaurants, bars, bookstores, etc
The hotel is clean and comfortable, and in an excellent location, very close to downtown Berkeley and walking distance from the UC-Berkeley campus. Breakfast was nicely set up. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.

Good stay for the money

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: cramped room
We wanted to stay close to SanFrancisco for a day in the city, and found this place in Berkeley. The accomodations were adequate, although the room was quite small. Nice, modern, clean bathroom, very comfortable bed. Decent continental breakfast. I would stay here again, but maybe not in a 2 bed room.

Best value for the money! Updated with free parking, breakfast and internet

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Best value for your money in area. My king bed room was updated with new carpet, marble bath and outside sink. Had more amentiies than most 3 star hotels which I normally stay at: free breakfast, parking, internet, microwave, fridge, flatscreen tv, iron, and hairdryer. Close to campus and restaurants. Only negatives are small room and tight parking. A great restaurant on College Ave. is La Mediteranee. Get the lunch sampler for 2 and you will have a Mediterranean feast! BTW, the free breakfast had hot and cold food, fruit, cereal - was more than I expected, but I don't think they restock when they run out.

Never going to stay here again!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Poor breakfast, maid service
Maid left door open to street and several rooms open and unattended while cleaning. I complained to desk staff but maid continued this practice. Maid did not bring 4th towel each day. Maid placed dirty linens onto bed and tucked in cover so I didn't see until the next morning when I woke up. My eyebrow tweezers were missing and found 2 days later in the bottom of my clothes suitcase, after I left them on the bathroom counter near my toiletry bag. I think maid stole them and when I complained, they were returned magically to my suitcase. I am really sure my sons didn't tweeze while we there! Food was limited at 0900 even though breakfast was served until 1000. Food was cold.

Surprised with good quality

Recently remodeled and clean. Rooms were cramped but really nice and comfy. Coffee in the room was nice, so was the free internet. Would definitely stay here again, great value.

Good value for the money!

I enjoyed the stay at the Holiday Inn Express on Bond. My #1 criteria for a hotel is cleanliness and this hotel was very clean. The only drawback of this hotel is the decor that is a little dated. But other than that this was Grade A!

Nice clean room!

This hotel was very nice and clean. The breakfast was surprising. They served fresh sliced strawberries, melon, hard-boiled eggs, pastries, juice, coffee, bagels and frozen waffles to toast. The location was poor. There was very little to choose from with regard to restaurants in this industrial area. The towels were very ragged. Everything else was very good.
