“Nice room If you don't mind Noise & Dirt!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2006

Room was nice, furnishings decent, 30+ channel TV. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean. Microwave and fridge and sink also. Convenient if business takes you to Oakland. Hot breakfast buffet had eggs and barely cooked bacon, rest of the breakfast layout was very spartan and unappealing. Strange room layout as a "backward" C with the sitting area on the bottom of the C near the door and the bedroom at the top of the C by the windows. The bathroom was in the middle of the room, the middle part of the C with a narrow aisleway between the sitting area and bed. About what would be expected of a $99 hotel room until we talk about the NOISE--walls are paper-thin and you hear everything from the room next door and when your neighbor uses his bathroom, you can barely hear the TV. Don't get a room on the busy street side as the paper-thin walls make it seem like you're sitting in the middle of traffic. Now let's talk about DIRT--I have never ever in my life stayed in a hotel where the windows were as DIRTY as this place--my room, the hallways, the lobby, the breakfast room--all filthy like they hadn't been washed/cleaned in months. Next DIRT--the sitting area in the room had an overhead fan--it was white and you could see the black dirt on the top and sides of the fan blades like it hadn't been cleaned for months either. As nice as the room seemed, why were the windows and fan so absolutely filthy? Average room, but the dirt and noise wouldn't make me want to stay here again nor recommend it to anyone until they cleaned the windows, sound-proofed better and put more effort into what they advertise as a HOT breakfast buffet.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2006

We stayed at the Hawthorn Suites in February. What a great value at $98, the internet rate. Ours was a suite with two double beds and two TVs, refrig with coffee maker and microwave, a spacious bathroom, clean, quiet, plenty of free parking, and a hot breakfast to boot! Nicely furnished, didn't feel cheap at all. Safe neighborhood. There is an art gallery across the street and it is walking distance to plenty of good restaurants.

The location isn't in the middle of bustling Oakland, but close enough. It is on the island of Alameda, which connects to Oakland through a water tube that you drive through, ending up in Oakland's Chinatown, about 2 miles away. So you'll have to have a car if you stay there and wish to tour the East Bay.

Service is sparse, but friendly. We had to get our own rollaway bed, but that was no big deal - not for that price.

The Oakland airport is less than 15 minutes away.
