The rooms were dirty and smelled of smoke. Was told non smoking yet ash trays were in rooms. Mildew around window sills.AC smelled of smoke. Horrible experience will never stay at Motel 6 again! I'm okay with Cheaper properties provided they are clean. I don't need the fancy but this was awful! Rooms were not ready at 4pm!!!

My family stayed here for three nights on the first leg of our CA vacation this September. Maybe it's just because we'd been on a plane for hours and were exhausted but our first impressions weren't exactly stellar. The neighborhood is less than ideal (although very convenient for an A's game) but better than some of Oakland that we later... More

My fiancee and I needed an inexpensive place to stay for 1 night near the airport, so we chose this hotel on a Saturday night. When we entered into the parking lot we were greeted with 2 security guards, and a bunch of people riding through the parking lot in their cars, as well as people hanging outside of their... More

Yes the neighborhood is a bit rough looking; but the proximity to O.Co is great as is the price. The upgrades to the lobby and to the rooms was a nice surprise. The staff were pleasant and busied themselves taking care of the guests. Our room (1400) was clean and rooms were ready to check into well before the the... More

I stayed here four nights and found the experience to be OK. My room (1114) was very clean, the bed comfortable and the area was mostly quite. I found the presence of the security guard to be comforting as this area has some distractions. I stayed here last year on business and because of it's close proximity to the airport... More

The room smelt like cigarettes and weed. I hate when that smell gets on your clothes. Overall the staff was very friendly and they do have security. It is convenient spot for the location because its near Bart train.

I stayed here 08/13/14. The neighborhood is a little rough but not unlike the rest of Oakland. I stay in hotels 300 + nights yearly and this hotel is only good for a nights sleep and get out. If you are traveling with your family DON'T STAY HERE. There are many other places in this area that are family friendly.

If you're just looking for somewhere to sleep, then this is the place for you. I stayed a week and during the day it's loud and on this particular weekend, a group of motorcycle riders checked it. They sat outside their doors with their coolers full of beer and smoking pot in broad daylight!!! The room was basic but clean.... More
