I stayed 5 nights at the Mira Vista primarily because of its location. It’s less than 3 blocks from the El Cerrito del Norte BART station and it’s next to I-80. We had two rooms that were clean and nicely furnished; however, the rooms and the motel are showing their age. Both rooms were on the second floor facing the... More

Tulsee N, Guest Relations Manager at Hotel Mira Vista, responded to this review

Tishcitric, thank you!! We do our best to provide the amenities our competitors offer with the complimentary breakfast, fast Wi-Fi, in-room micro-fridge, and service! We understand commuting can be extremely difficult especially during rush hour and having the BART down the street has helped our guests tremendously during personal & business trips. We look forward to your next visit! More

Location is good for convenience, but funky otherwise. Set next to the freeway and bordered by busy streets. Lobby is fairly sparse too. Once I was in my room though it was nice and fairly recently remodeled. I had a 3rd floor room which helped, but the noise was not bad. Stopped by the breakfast room a bit after 7AM... More

Bob, Thank you for sharing your experience!! Typically our guests prefer easy on/off accessibility to major freeways during stop overs. I do apologize for the dim lighting and assure you we have made sure the room is more well lit than what you experienced last. We hope to see you again soon! More

I stayed here because I didn't want to fight the heavy bridge and city traffic in San Francisco and needed a place with an easy-on and -off the I80 and near a BART station. Mira Vista filled the bill. It's an ordinary urban motel, with satisfactory accommodations and plenty of retail nearby if needed. I found the "free" breakfast meager,... More

Nice clean room with comfortable beds. The front desk manager let us check in early which was nice but his attitude was not friendly. There is a Denny's right around the corner as well as Safeway. Very close to freeway which was nice. Breakfast was minimal but in a clean area. Overall not a bad place to stay

Location was good for us. Busy streets on two sides made entering the traffic an adventure at times. Welcome at the front desk continues to be less than warm but the computer was fixed since our last visit. Room was clean and comfortable. OK for our one night business stay but would not use this facility for more than that.

The room was a nice size and comfortable. The best feature is the location; the hotel is very close to BART and to a beautiful Safeway store. The area around the hotel was just "okay" but it seemed safe. Breakfast was awful...packaged food, in a small room with ugly furniture. It is a decent value for the money, given the... More

You'd think a wedding group would get the best rooms? There isn't much positive to say. The place needs an overhaul, or maybe knock it down and start again. Dull, dim, noisy rooms. Hard beds. Tiny furniture. Lots of tiny ants in the bathroom. Breakfast not worth eating. Impossinle to know why anyone would choose it.

Walls were dirty and when I was looking for my other shoe under the bed, I saw a condom wrapper. Not cool at all. I showed up late and kept calling because know one was at the front desk. Just disappointed overall. The room was a non smoking room but still smelled like cigarettes.
