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

No elevators, no jacuzzi tubs. 230 has full kitchen fridge microwave, dinning table, sliding glass opens to balcony that overlooks courtyard. Seperate bedroom large bed. 2 TV's with enough channels to keep you busy. Beach is under 5 min walk, bowling next door. Shopping center... More

Overall the rooms are adequate for the price but the beds are very uncomfortable. Especially the couch beds. Definitely bring mattress pads. Older look and very old TV's. I think it's time for an upgrade! It's nice the room has a separate bedroom from the living room and kitchenette but the old carpet and run down paint take away from... More

Coral Reef Inn needs painting and upgrade of furniture. If you can look past that, this is a lovely place to stay. The suite is very large: living room, dining area, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and a large balcony. Our balcony looked over the lagoon and it was a delightful place to sit in the early morning and when we returned... More

We recently stayed three nights at this hotel and we were very disappointed with their housekeeping. The beds were made every day and the towels were changed (shower was never cleaned/rinsed), but that was it. The rooms have kitchenettes, but the counter and the dining table were never wiped clean. The floors were also not vacuumed. In other words, you... More

Well, I'm going to have to echo what many of the other reviewers have said about this property. This motel has been around for at least 30 years, and it looks it. My family is from the area, and I spent my early childhood in Alameda and I remember this place from way back then. I stayed last weekend (I'm... More

This was our second stay at the Coral Reef Inn. It's less expensive than other hotels in the area and in a nice area of Alameda, just a block away from Shore Drive and the SF Bay. The staff is friendly and tries to be helpful, Even though our room key didn't work until the last night, we found the... More
