    Great staff, terrible motel!

    Great staff.

    Heater barely works (even though it's February); it's dark; the shower hangs so low I had to bend to use it and I'm only 5'7"; the decor is dark, depressing and cheap; the electric outlets were scarce--just an awful place that isn't worth it compared to other motels in Berkeley.

    Cute inn but quite noisy.

    The location is great (North Berkeley) near plenty of restaurants. Exterior is quaintly decorated, interiors are nice and have a home-y touch.

    Unfortunately the walls are very thin so be prepared to hear conversations clearly from the adjacent rooms. The water lines are especially loud. I am not a light sleeper but it is difficult to rest when you're woken every time a neighbor turns on a sink. Additionally, like many motels of this grade, the WiFi is totally overloaded. It is possible to connect to the network and check your email if you're patient. Expect to get internet connectivity in 15 second intervals every 2 minutes or so.
