“Very Satisfactory Stay”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Busy weekend and all other hotels were full. Happy to have made reservations here. Rooms have been upgraded nicely. Very clean and accommodating. The walkways, stairs and balconies could use some power steam cleaning. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We walked approximately 1/2 mile South for a place to dine and in the a.m. walked 1/2 mile north to a Starbucks. We had a very pleasant stay.

We stayed here because they are pet friendly which we appreciate. The rooms are in serious need of upgrades, which 'I think' they are doing on the centre block. We took ALL of our stuff out of our car. Cops were there one morning, we were there for 3 nights. Staff at check were nice. Our first night we were by some people partying upstairs for all hours of the night. We asked to be moved and were for our last 2 nights.

Room Tip: Facing the parking lot so you can watch your car.

Got to this hotel after all the other hotels in SF were booked, not a safest place to be. Other than that the WIFI didn't work even though I paid for and the rooms bathroom door was so crooked I couldn't close it so much

Got to the hotel at 1030 pm, stopped by security guard who then watched us closely ensuring that we were actual customers, all the luggage we had notwithstanding. Once in the room we didnt leave until sun up in morning. But we did watch out the room window as the cops ran the dogs thru the rooms looking for drugs. I love oakland. Its the real world.slept sporadically.....gunshots

I pay 90 dollars for a room and no shampoo.... The front desk lady barely spoke English, creeps in the parking lot and throughout the hotel grounds.. Bed was like something they found on the alley. Very low water pressure.. I won't stay again.. If no other hotels nearby are available, stay at the Best Western Plus, Oakland Airport....

Its motel 6. Room was clean and the rates are reasonable. Close to freeway and anywhere you need to go. There is security onsite which some people would think that was not a good place to stay but they were very nice and very watchful so it made me feel safe. Has a nice pool and was clean.

We stayed here just one night and reserved a non-smoking room. The first room we were offered (128) absolutely stank of stale cigarette smoke. We complained and were offered the only other "non-smoking" room they had left (229) and this also stank of stale cigarette smoke! We had no choice but to spend the night there. The lady in the reception was really unhelpful as well. Never going here ever again.
