They advertise "on lagoon, across from beach.ʻ Well, not quite accurate, but guess itʻs better than across from bowling alley and apartment complex...(the beach is a block away We checked into our "deluxe" suite with kitchenette and climbed the stairs to the 2nd floor (no elevator - no problem). We walked into the spacious suite and it smelled musty. OK,... More

Carpet was filthy. No elevator, so had to haul luggage up stairs. Mattress was well worn & you rolled to center when trying to sleep. Faucet in kitchen dripped & kept me awake. Only cold food for "continental" breakfast". Only good comments: staff were friendly & bathroom appeared clean.

(From email "Cancel/Modify By Date: 07/16/2015") Their management and hotel reservation system say I had until 12:01 AM on the 16th!!! Yes, 1... More

Near the Bay. The pool is nice and in the center of the complex surrounded by the two story motel. Lots of grass in the center for... More

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
