Two young children and 3 adults in our group. One bedroom, living room, kitchen unit. Not ready for us at check in time of 4:00 -- had to wait an additional 1 1/2 hours. Carpet was so soiled that by the time freshly bathed kids walked from bathroom to living room their feet were actually black. Kids slept on pullout... More

I never write reviews but I feel I need to warn people about this place. Long story short, my wife and I booked for two nights over third party vendor. Checkout is at 11am, our last day we were late getting back because of traffic so we ended up checking out at noon. We got a reminder checkout phone call... More

The staff and manager are excellent. It is walking distance from the beach with a view of San Francisco. There is a small outside mall across the street. I recommend for a weekend get away. It is hard to believe you are 8 minutes away from the noise of downtown Oakland.

The Coral Reef Inn is ideally located within walking distance of just about anything you would want to do in Alameda. The customer service was more than satisfactory, and they upgraded me to a suite which made me quite happy. The room was spacious, with a full sized frig, microwave, stove and oven in a decent sized kitchen area. There... More

I missed the "Free Cancellation" by 6 hours (which must be 48 hours, not 24), due to a cause above and beyond myself, I called as soon as I found out. Hotels.com called Coral Reef and they said they didn't even have my reservation! 2 days later I was charged $174.90 for a "no show". I called the manager Sunil,... More

Our arrival was late and our departure was early, so we didn't get to explore much of the amenities here. Having a single queen suite, the room was quite large, had numerous storage areas in hallway, along with cabinets in kitchen as though you were going to move in for good. Place was clean, but bed was iffy. Not very... More

While the rooms are cavernous, the staff is friendly and the grounds are clean, this hotel is fronzen in the 60's. Creaky floor, paper-thin walls and moldy grout in the tub certainly do not qualify this as a "business class" hotel. Throw in the het noise from aircraft taking off at Oakland and you have a so-so experienc, at best,... More

The room was huge! Full kitchen, living room, the closet is almost as big as mine at home. It was clean, but older. We really only needed a place to sleep, so everything else was just extra. The bedding was great - lots of pillows and plenty of blanket options. However, when we got into the bed, we both rolled... More

We booked two nights here last month to give us a full day in San Francisco. From the picture on the advert you get the impression that you are on the seashore. You are not. The water shown is a pool. We booked a room with city views. We got a room with a view of the car park of... More
