Basically, I could copy SandyM33's review here, since my experiences are pretty exactly the same. The place is really clean, and I did feel save. The staff is friendly and hands out information on San Francisco without even being asked for. The BART station MacArthur is about a 5 minutes walk away, and from there the BART takes you to...

I stayed in room 119 with one bed. The room and grounds were spotless, with fixtures & furniture you would find in the finest of resorts. If you were staying for a night, you could not find a better deal. But if you are using it as a base of operation for a number of days as you tour the... More

Price was very reasonable. No coffee pot in the room and no breakfast at all but since I was only sleeping there I would recommend it if you are looking for price and nothing else. Room was recently remodeled and clean. Not having coffee in the morning was not good though!

With an easy walk to BART for a 30 min ride into San Francisco, this hotel served it's purpose however the room was a bit disappointing. A rather small double bed, very dated décor and a carpet you wished you hadn't sat on! The bathroom could do with a makeover too. The room did have a fridge and a TV... More

Stay here for the price! This was the lowest room price I could find on a trip to conduct some family business. Prepare yourself for a Motel 6 kind of room from the 1960s, and you'll do okay and you'll appreciate the low price and a fairly convenient location. The owners are very nice. I found the room to be... More

The bay bridge inn is a clean, reasonable priced, friendly and in a good location. Close to transport. It was a bit hard to find but once found it was worth it. The staff were helpful and friendly, they helped us a lot. The area was busy but that is the location. Overall it was good.

Pros: Room 110 is the best room there - I think. It's the King room. I've stayed in 3 different rooms there before, and they were kind of old (not really dirty, just old - the complex is older). But this time I decided to 'upgrade' for an additionally $3 - lol, and it was the best decision of my... More

The location is run down, but the overall inn wasn't so bad. They didnt clean room everyday. The front desk worker was very helpful and pleasant. For the price I was happy with stay. Loved the fact the Bart was just a block and a half away. That made our trip easier since the Bay bridge was closed.

Considering the area this was a good value. Neighborhood not great but well lit free parking lot. Room was clean enough but was missing basic things like towel racks. No hand towels or floor mat/towel. Towels said Holiday inn and cups said Ramada :-). Definitely budget but cheap & clean enough. Staff was strange but OK (you would be too... More

I spent two nights at the Bay Bridge Inn in Oakland. I chose this location because I didn't want to have to deal with driving and parking in SF. The hotel is about two blocks from the MacArthur BART station, as well as being a less than one mile straight shot off the I-580, so easy to get in and... More
