This is been my hotel of choice in the Oakland area for the past 3 years. The hotel is close to multiple modes of public transportation (BART and several bus routes). The hotel staff is professional and friendly, keeping the hotel clean and safe. Rooms are comfortable, have cable TV, and both wired and wireless high-speed Internet. I highly recommend... More

We chose to stay in Oakland as part of our second leg touring around various places on the west coast (USA). We found that as we had a car and because the San Francisco acommodation seemed very overpriced, that Oakland was a happy compromise. THE MOTEL AND LOCATION: Basic but OK and has free Wifi. The service was fine and... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2010

My husband and I stayed here over memorial day weekend because we decided to go at the last minute and there wasn't anything available in San Francisco in our price range. We chose this place because as well as fitting into our budget, we knew it was close to the BART station from other Trip Advisor reviews. When we first... More

Was difficult to find. Room was small and bare. Hole in ceiling of bathroom to nothing but maybe entrance for the rats. Would never repeat this experience. We asked for a wake up call that didn't happen and we nearly missed our flight. Do NOT recommend this place for anyone.

We chose this hotel because it had great value, we had great savings at this place as opposed to staying at a hotel in actual San Fran. The rooms were clean and had comfort. The staff gave us plenty info on sight seeing in the bay. Would recommend to other travelers looking to save while visiting SF.

Was here for a short trip to San Francisco.The description of the Motel doesn`t compare with the description in the advertizing,the rooms are dirty,the remote for tv was out of order and the shower/bathroom was also in a bad condition.Just a relatively cheap stay-no less,no more.

This place has been done over by a family working together. It's in a very funky part of Oakland--no walking-around after dark--in amongst several very dubious run-down motels. But I've stayed here twice, and it's perfectly okay. If you're a traveler as opposed to just a tourist and you've been some other places around the world, this place is just... More

For under $60, in the SF/OAK area, you better watch out, the service and the rooms are terrible. The rooms look nothing like the pictures; only about a third of the rooms appear to be "remodeled." This is a mistake you should never repeat.
