“Only if you have to”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 via mobile

We stayed there for 2 nights.
Area - not very good... But we had no problems.
Free parking, free wifi.
Nice room, well decorated. Bathroom very poor. Air condition kept braking, but straight away has been fixed by staff.
Its a bit noisy, as its on the main road.
All in all i would stay there as its close to San Francisco just over the bay bridge.

Location is not nice, I felt insecure to walk around there but is close to a Mall and other restaurants. The rooms are small but comfy and they are clean, as other reviewers have said, try to take a second-floor room as the hotel is in front of a busy road that can make it difficult to sleep in.

Check in was fast but the staff was not friendly, on our check out we were ringing the bell to get somebody but nobody showed up, we waited for about 20 minutes and even tried to call front desk from our room with no luck so we decided to leave the card key in the room with a note. Anyway, this is a good hotel if you're staying just one night but I'm sure there are other alternatives to it

This was not my first trip to Oakland, and if it is yours, this is not the place I would recommend. I had little time to plan my trip(2 days) - and almost all of the area Hotels were booked. A friend found this place and I jumped on it. It is a bit out on the outskirts of downtown, restaurants are not within walking distance. I had a car so this was not a problem. That being said , it was exactly what I expected for the LOW price that I paid. It was clean enough, had a small refrigerator, small microwave, coffee maker and two bottles of water. Nothing fancy, two stories(stairs), plenty of parking.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the top floor - in the back right corner. It will block some of the morning tr...
