"Great breakfast. Needs improvement."

Rooms are dated and need an update. Beds are comfortable and AC works well. Customer service was okay. Could have been better. Breakfast was awesome. Parking seemed a little short and neighborhood was a little dirty.

I was very disappointed in the housekeeping staff. Communication a big problem. We stayed for a week, and service I would not even rate a 1 out of 5 for the housekeeping services provided. And the little that was provided had to be asked, even getting trashed emptied. The front desk staff very helpful and informative. I would not recommend to friends or family, nor would I stay again if services remain as is.

"Dated But Clean"

This is an aged hotel. Not wanting to dissect it but the decor is right out of the 1970's. The rooms are clean and quiet. The hotel is no frills. It is not luxury. Having said that I used the fitness room and it was functional. Many kids used the swimming pool and they clearly wet having fun. I appreciated the free parking, internet and all day coffee. The staff are courteous. I would stay here again.

"Not so Good"

Best Things: location, linens, air conditioner, people at the desk. Bad: location. Berkeley seems to foster the weird. This property is in serious decline. The common areas are dirty, the elevator is a filthy, smelly closet and makes strange sounds, dimly lit. The room was semi clean...looked like the areas around the walls had Never been vacuumed...large food particles around the legs of desk and walls....disgusting. Bathroom was barely clean...very gross! Almost afraid to touch anything.

"Worst customer service - ever"

Stay away!!! During recent stay we dropped an item of clothing in lobby while leaving for the day. Called shortly thereafter and was told it was in the lost and found. Went back three times in two days to front desk to claim item. All three times was told that it was locked up and that no one was available with the key. They never once had offered to bring it to the room (as other hotels have done in the past). After leaving early the next morning, still no locked up clothing, the hotel was called. At that time they kept insisting that I would now have to pay to get it shipped to me. They stopped returning my calls and my calls to Corporate were no help since this particular La Qunita is independently owned. PS. Food was very poor quality too....
