We spent one night at the Castro Valley Inn in July. We were on a college tour, California to Oregon to Washington and returning. We wanted to meet friends who lived in San Ramon and this hotel was close and easy for them to find. Not a fancy place, dated, but clean and good value for this expensive area. Breakfast... More

Great front desk that is helpful to your needs. Clean and comfortable room. Great deal for your money. Minutes away from Oakland and San Francisco. Sharri's and the Posh Bagel were nearby places to eat. Easy to get about around town.

It's a lot out of the way, but an okay and somewhat quiet place to stay (try to get a room in the back of the inn, tho....traffic noise can be a problem). Nice person at the counter. Very clean establishment.

U want to relax from long drive or clean place to stay without bugs, while visiting friends in East Bay than this is the place. Safeway and Scottrade are across the street. Catholic Church is...

Was supposed to stay for 2 nights but they only showed us staying for 1 so we had to move to another room for the the second night. First room (125) had wet carpet (which was dirty) in front of the A/C unit because the drain was clogged. The coffee pot was dirty with old coffee and filter left in... More

The time I spent at this run down motel was far too long. Didn't get any sleep because the bed was so hard and lumpy. Pillows, same issue. The sheets and blankets had holes and rips on them. The carpet was dirty and had rips. There is a maintenance guy that seems to live there, he was in the room... More

Purposely noted it was a business triip. My daughter (19 years old) showed up to check in, they said no one under 21 can check in. While on the phone with reception person,... More

We read reviews before making reservations. The comments about Les proved true. Room was comfortable, well equipped and clean. Next time we go to the Bay Area we plan to stay there. As has been stated it was indeed affordable and convenient.
