I just returned to New York from Berkeley. I had a marvelous time visiting friends and family with one caveat: the hotel. Since no one had room for me, I got a room at the Howard Johnson (ne Hotel Shattuck Plaza) on Shattuck and Alston. The price was right--under $60/night--but the room was pretty grim.

So, while it's still on my mind, does anyone have a recommendation for a hotel, motel, B&B, inn that's modest but pleasant for, say, under $75?

Much obliged,
Erica

P.S. I don't think I've ever had better Thai chicken curry than what I was served at the farmers market on Saturday. (We don't have great Thai restaurants here.)
