Unsafe for anyone to stay here. My room had no screens on the windows and the latch to lock the window has bent and broken. Anyone outside the room( 520) could have easily slide the window open and entered the room while we were sleeping. Needed windows open because the Air conditioner didn't work in our room (520). Worst decor... More

We had a plesant stay at Budget Inn Hayward. It is located close to the loop next North Hayward. Lot of taxis are available and City of hayward transit. So going around the downtown Hayward was conveinient and became easy. Desides, it becomes easier to guide the taxi to the hotel. Being in the central of the EastBay area; there... More

I have used this hotel for the past two years without issues and always had good customer service. I was initially skeptical about this hotel, especially after reading some of the negative reviews, but still have it a shot due to the convenience of the location due to construction work, the advertised features and the fairly decent price. To my... More

Booked online and does not look at all like the pictures. Office at night is locked so you talk to employee through a safety window. The room had chipped red paint and stucco on the inside.A view of a field with homeless people in it were outside the side of the complex. A chain link fence divides you for your... More

I can't really complain too greatly about this place as a freind of mine got us in cheap. I would however say that for the normal price they charge it simply is worth it. The rooms are good (for a 2*) and the hotel is clean and tidy, however, on one day we came back to the room to find... More

We prepaid for this hotel for 2 nights. The room was so poor we ended up abandoning our prepaid room on the second night and moving on. We prepaid this hotel before leaving home so we would have a room for our first 2 nights. Big mistake. The rooms aren't clean, the room smelled very stale and unclean. Even the... More

It was a short 3min drive to mission ave and the general downtown area A street etc where you can find a few restaurants, italian, japanese, mexican... More
