The best thing about this is the location. It is right off Lake Merritt and you should try to walk around the lake if you have time. This is a good deal for the price - and if you want an even better deal you should join their Value Club. Breakfast is very basic - coffee, juice, cereal and today.

This is the cheapest motel in Oakland. The location is good - very near the lake, not far from downtown, near a ton of awesome restaurants. It's not the quietest neighborhood in Oakland, but I've never been seriously hassled in that part of town either. It was a solid choice of a cheap motel in Oakland.

I came to Oakland on business, and chose this hotel based on location and price. I looked at the photos on the website at the time of booking. When I checked in yesterday, I was appalled at what I saw. Room was filthy, damp towels, no towel rack or OUTLET in the bathroom, and bugs in our bed! I am an attorney here for a trial, and the inconvenience of repacking and moving to a new hotel is beyond stressful.

Seriously - if I could give them NEGATIVE Stars, I would. This place is a dump - pure and simple. EVERYTHING about it is a dump...except the people - they are fine. They even have a new Manager, but nothing can save this place unless and until they shut it down and make MAJOR renovations. Old, filthy, musty. Bed Bugs. Hookers. Pimps, Dealers, OH MY ! RUN AWAY !

Pros: Nice staff, seemed clean, good security, good location that was close to BART station Cons: Old and shabby room with no towel bars in the bathroom, even though we had a no-smoking room we were innundated with dope smoke coming in from room next door, noisy location, breakfast consisted of coffee, cereal, and toast

I booked a room for a week for business at this motel. They made threatened to tow my truck because they had inadequate parking! They told me "to park somewhere down the street." The rooms are tiny and have a smell to them, my towels were dirty when I got them from the front desk (there were none in the room when I arrived). The shower was questionable. Best advice: stay anywhere else!!!

Family vacations, I book this hotel in the picture look nice and clean and it also said, continental breakfast. There is no continental breakfasts only terrible juice, cereal with flavor and milk, there is no bar in the bathrooms to put the towels, the sink got flooded .They don't come and clean the rooms correctly or completely. Also the floors smell like pee!! That's disgusting! And the worst part is that at 3 in the morning random people coming knocking at your room saying that your in the wr... Read more

This is the worse hotel I ever stayed. I rented 2 rooms and they both have issues. One room has toilet flood. The other have sink leaking. Water was coming out of the drain. Poor customer service. I went for help and no one on the front desk( July 27, 2016). The pictures online look good, but it not like what you see.

The shower is literally just pieces of slippery tile just thrown in there. Also the ceiling above the shower was broken and their solution was tape with paint over it. Along with that, there were bugs in the shower. Also if you are staying there for more than one night better keep your towels because they won't give you anymore than what they gave you the first night. And their breakfast sucks; just toast and cereal. You're better off sleeping in your car.

Was in Oakland for my sister's 50th wedding anniversary celebration at the Oakland museum, and booked this because it was a short walk to the museum, and close to the Lake Merritt B.A.R.T. station. No one at the office when I arrived, and the room wasn't made up (2:00 P.M.). Granted, I only needed a place to sleep (and I'm not real picky) but it was pretty spartan. On the way back, my brother insisted on driving me, because he thought the neighborhood looked "sketchy". I have to say that it was ... Read more

The Good: The hotel is located in a relatively safe area of Oakland across from Lake Merritt. It has free parking. It is relatively close, half a mile (7 minutes walk) to the Lake Merritt Bart station. The Bad: The rooms are very dated. Each room has different issue. Some have curtains which do not close all the way. Some have broken shower handles. Most have worn out or dirty carpet. The worst issue I have had with this property is the internet connection which is non-existent, and barely b... Read more

The breakfast was not a breakfast Müsli with no milk. Butter with no bread and one day there was no breakfast at all. I ask why ,the answer was ,it's closed nothing more. The room was not really clean. Expensive for what you get. The good thing is the location on the lake and the short way to the train to San fransisco

We reserved online and upon arrival us and another lady were waiting over 45 min because the receptionist was tardy to work. We stayed for 5 nights, our room was cleaned 3 out of 5 times. The location was about s half hr walk to downtown. There's one store nearby however it's situated in a rougher area. The lake Merritt is a nice amenity for runners. Upon our third day they told us there was a problem with our card however they made the mistake of not processing the correct info. Also their pop ... Read more
