18th wedding anniversary ruined by dirty sheets, loud guests, an even Louder party, Broken Heat, Remote, Phone, and Wires hanging out where a smoke alarm should be. Could Not Open Windows. We left. Our 94 dollar Loss. Don't Stay Here!

I stayed there, because it was close to the client I was visiting next morning and I came in late evening! It was only for one night. The entire interior is very aged and most of it does not function or is damaged. The wireless internet did not work. My room was filthy, stinky, dirty.... The Air Conditioning did not... More

I have never written a review in my life for any purchase good or bad, but I must warn everyone to please stay away from this roach motel. I just left there and I wish I had listen to the reviews. Since I was born and raised in Oakland, and can remember when this was a nice place. I refused... More

When we arived the the hotel lobby had a vintage feel. How ever after we left the lobby no our way to the room everything went down hill. The hotel has an elevator that clearly has not worked in a while and instead of fixing it they stuck a fake tree in front of it. The hallways give you the... More
