Stayed at this "hotel" 5 nights while seeing San fransisco and the surrounding tourist attractions, as we had flewn in from Norway, and chose this hotel because of the reasonable price. This is very much a "you get what you pay for"- hotel. Rooms aren't cleaned properly, which to me is not a deal breaker, but nevertheless irritating. Had a... More

A woman I'm the parking lot wearing nothing but underwear asked me if she can borrow a condom. Room was decent but smelled. On the weekends they get motorcycle gangs that hang put in the parking lot drinking. Place is rated R. If your comfortable with that, it may be a value for you.

The first room, a non smoking room , smelled like smoke. The 2nd rooms fire alarm started chirping .Then the next morning , some person ran his disel engine at 7:30 am & speaking very loud , house keeping came at 10:30.am, when I asked for a later checkout. Too many things go on here, it's not run well.

Do not stay at this hotel. THE CLEANING STAFF WILL STEAL YOUR ITEMS AND LIE ABOUT IT. I left a jacket in the room and the cleaning staff claims they never saw it. Filed a compliant with the front office which went of deaf ears. Then, you CAN'T HAVE VISITORS AFTER 10PM...I though this was a hotel. Didn't know this... More

Hello, Me and my husband were here in November 2013. Unfortunately, it took us 2 visits to really feel the feeling of not returning. We are from Alaska. This hotel gives the popular Motel 6 a "bad reputation. I think I will go elsewhere. We've been to other Motel 6s before that were decent and clean like they did care... More

I stayed here for 3 days, had trouble getting on Internet so I called the desk and was told they were busy and would call me back. They never did. Next day we returned to find that the maid had made our beds, after we got ready for bed, my wife showed me the toilet paper in the bathroom. The... More

Absolutely disgusting! Spent one night their on 8/11/13 and the room we got was terrible. It was a non-smoking room but reeked of smoke, there were burns in the restroom and on bedding from cigarettes. There were people coming and going at all hours of the night and the beds themselves were badly stained. First and last time I stay... More

I've been there many times because Alameda is a good location (easy to reach both from the Airport and from San Francisco downtown) if you want to skip the downtown (and find a cheaper hotel). The rooms look a bit dated but are clean, the facilities are poor but I like the location. The breakfast is very basic (there is... More

We had no choice, cause we were very tired and it was already late, so we stayed here at the Ghetto 6! No microwave, thin walls, no fridge, small rooms, prison feeling outside. Wi-Fi costs extra and it is expensive anyway for what you get! The only thing which was ok was the cleanliness. We stayed in over 20 different... More
