Close to downtown Oakland within walking distance of the Fox theater. Arrived late at 5:30 for our 3:00 reservation and the room was not ready. There were 5 other parties in the same situation. The receptionist didn't ask our name or gather any info from us (or anyone else in the waiting room) when we arrived. We were asked to sit and wait behind the people that arrived before us. After 30 minutes nobody waiting had been taken care of so we went up and told them we had a reservation and gave our name. We were given the same answer. We went to a nearby restaurant and came back an hour later...then our room was ready. They clearly needed a more caring/knowledgeable person working the front desk.
Location / Distance to City Center was great. The room was a bit small.
Very clean, comfortable accommodations. Great central downtown location for business. Nice hot breakfast included. Good value.
Nice place. newly remodeled, friendly staff, free parking and WiFI
The bed was really comfortable and the room clean .Housekeeping was helpful!bathroom was cute Poor facilities such as hairdyer .Microwave . fridge....the location is far from downtown but the transportation is convenient.
The bed was pretty comfortable. The room looked very new. The smell was very strong -- an odor of the like you get with a new mattress. There should be more ventilation.
Cleaned every day. Easy access to downtown. No problems with staff.cheap. It's not super quiet. I hear lots of traffic and loud people cross by the room but it is expected at a motel this cheap. Put the AC on to drown it out.
Even before I arrived I was impressed...they called me while I was on the road to inquire about my special needs (ground floor room only), and when I got there the staff was friendly and helpful, clearly Asian of some type but speaking excellent English; and then I got to the room. Amazing! It looked like it was 'fresh out of the box', clean and neat and very well appointed...a desk one can work a laptop at, a firm mattress and plenty of soft but sturdy pillows...and don't get me started on the glass-walled shower. I blanched a little at the price tag but I have to say, in the end, it was well worth it. Next time I visit the Emeryville/Oakland area I'll be staying there for sure!
For the price it is so good. Maid service is not diarily
No frills, but cost was good. I would bring your own towels, like any hotel/motel they are gross. Bathroom was nice and updated, much space to put your stuff out. TV Location Parking Towels Noise Some people/area/location (shady) You had to be buzzed in and the check in pepilepsy were behind bullet proof glass.
It was the cheapest I could find in the SF area. The location is very sketchy and we had an unpleasant encounter with a passerby in the early morning. It would have been nice if there had been security.
Clean room and bathroom
Good value - clean and comfortable. The area is not that bad. Distance from San Francisco: you have to take a car and pay the bay bridge toll (going into SF only). public transportation (train) is one block from the hotel but it doesn't work eves and night.
Inexpensive Inn. Good relationship money/ service received.
Location and price were ver good. Convenient to MacArthur bart station. The room and bedding were very clean. The room was not stocked with toilet paper. A coffee maker would be nice too.
Inexpensive Bad cleaning in bathroom, no restaurants around
The receptionist was rude!! He mistakenly overcharged me $10 yet showed zero apologetic attitude. Plus the towels had eyelashes and dust on them. Terrible experience.
Clean, up dated and modern. New carpets and large shower. Location in the hood. But still was safe. No bathtub.
Good location near BART, with easy access into San Francisco. Very helpful staff! Simple and clean, no thrills accommodation
Very clean, new TV and mini fridge. Wifi worked great. Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. I was checked in by Kiki (I believe) and she was very kind and professional. After reading some of the reviews online I was preparing myself for the worst, but was very pleasantly surprised. Perfect motel if you're on a budget and need to stay someplace close to the city. Pretty bad location in a seemingly bad neighborhood, but it was surprisingly quiet at night.
It's good enough for the price. The area isn't that bad but it's still Oakland. Housekeeping needs to happen later than 11am.
