Came here for some sports. The motel is in a great location for the Oakland sports venues, 10 min walk. The motel itself isn't great. Typical motel 6. But this ones' walls seem to be thinner, you can hear everything going on with your neighbors, people yelling outside. It's only the location that gives this motel 3 stars.

This by far is the worst place I ever stayed at garbage everywhere, everything in the room is broke, burn marks in the bed, tub and cigarette ashes on the floors as if housekeeping never even cleaned anything. There is giant rat traps near all the rooms and just on the other side of the fence a tent city with... More

I have been the Motel6 several times during coast-to-coast trips. The location is good as it is a short distance to the Oakland Airport. The front desk members are friendly and helpful if you need directions or suggestions. The rooms are cleaned everyday and are secure. There is security 24hrs and onsite parking. There is a pool for family and... More

I planned to stay here for 3 days but i only stayed 1 day and i got my money back. The area isn't nice at all, people are loud, and are staring at you + smoking weed in front of their doors all the time, i didn't feel comfortable. Plus the cleaning staff stole my perfumes so be careful people!... More

I came here after I got a job in San Francisco as an iOS programmer. My company put me up here for two weeks while I went apartment hunting. The room was clean, everything inside worked fine, the TV had a hookup panel installed right on the front of the cabinet, which was very nice. The facilities outside were adequate,... More

Waited 20 mins to check in. Dirty and damp room. Sheets were dirty. No free wifi. Strange dirty cat paw print on the sheets. Dirty parking lot. Shower was clogged. The maintenance guy came to fix it and pulled out massive amount of hair.

Stayed for 9 hours on a road trip from WA to Los Angeles. This place is near enough to the Oakland Coliseum that we enjoyed the fireworks from our 2nd story room. With doors and windows closed it was quiet enough, but people were up partying all night. Non smoking room smelled a bit like smoke. Taking the dog out... More

I stay in hotels 300 + nights yearly. I only stayed here because nothing else was available. The checkin was a mass of confusion and there were alot of people (6-8) who had confirmed reservations, but the motel had no record of them. I stayed here on 07/28 and was given room 2522.

We found out on arrival that this place is quite a bad part of town although they did have a security guard on duty. On check in they tried to charge me extra for 2 adults even though we already had a confirmation of the cost. After 10 minutes arguing they eventually agreed to honor the price on my confirmation....
