I have stayed here in the past due to availability...it has never disappointed and seems to have gotten a little better over the last 2-3 years, so I figured I would take the time and do them a solid. The first thing I noticed was that the rooms that I normally stay in were remodeled/upgraded...so, now, the non smoking rooms... More

(TripAdvisor doesn't allow amending of posted reviews, so I deleted the original one so I could write this update, at their suggestion.) About a month ago, I posted a lengthy negative review, detailing how my stay at this hotel was sub-standard in many ways. Horrible bed; missing lamps; upstairs bathroom leaking down into mine; etc. I ended my review by... More

I have stayed with this hotel several times in the past few years. The hotel has upgraded their services by many-fold without hiking up their rates. I travel to San Francisco for business but stay in Richmond because of the great prices this hotel offers. Moreover, the hotel is just 20 mins drive from the city. In my most recent... More

Hi Mike, Thanks for taking time out to write a review and also mentioning the upgrades. While we don't have the space for a breakfast room, we have made every effort to provide a 'break fast on the go.' We listened to our guests. One of the major complaints was about the coffee served for breakfast. After trying different brands,... More

Dear Haiko, I researched your stay in January and we do have the 3 rooms you requested in our records. On one of the rooms, the guest in your party requested a smoking room.

When I arrived I was a bit worried due to the area and the external of the hotel, but all was fine, the room was clean bed comfy and had hair dryer fridge and microwave, the only downside was that Breakfast wasn't put out until 9 am.

We stayed one night at ABVI in Richmond after having a bad night at another hotel. We moved over the ABVI and found it to be a great value. The rate was the best we could find. It was close to the hub of business that we needed to attend. Best of all the king size bed was actually comfortable.... More

This is a small inn located right off interstate. Although the exterior of the building is old, the rooms are very nice and clean. The room had everything required for your stay including microwave, fridge and a portable coffee maker. Being a bay area resident, I hesitated staying in Richmond, owing to its bad reputation. This motel, however, is in... More
