“Don't come to this place, don't be fooled by the price advertised”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011

This place is the last place where you want to stay, management is rude, unprofessional, cigarretes smoke smell is so bad starting in the front "office", there is no customer service procedures, it is just dirty, bed bags, bad odors all over the place, management only clean in front, but you should see all the mess that it is around it.
If it wasn't for some cats that keep the motel clear of mice, mold, etc, etc.

It is the worst "motel" in the area, take it from me.....don't come here....new "management" is just stupid, don't know anything about management.....

There is a lot of Bed Bugs in All units, besides beign so dirty...........

Just pay a few more dollars down the street and you will be better off...stay away from here..........

I stay at the Islander Motel. It is in the worst condition. You never bring your car there, because the parking lot is a patchwork quilt. The staff doesn't even like to live there.

This place is just plain dangerous ! There is a VERY SERIOUS ferel cat problem, wild cats
running in and out of the non existent entrance door. The cats are obviously using the hallway and stairwell as a litter box and or jut spraying to marl their territory, I was going to stay there as I had 20 years ago. After asking a person OUTSIDE the place "hw can this place be in business? The reply was that this is where they give homeless as well as "overload" from woman's shelter VOUCHERS to stay for free. This place should pay them to stay. Talk about demeaning, to an already "down on your luck" pat of society. I believe that it poses a serious health risk. I must stick up for the night clerk that was behind a bullet proof window ( says a lot ) He was very polite to me. Even helped me with directions to another motel that was affordable and not . This place has GOT TO
get the cat situation in control and put an entry door in so the cats can't get in to spray
all over the place * IT REALLY DOES SMELL WORSE THAN ANY PUBLIC BATHROOM
I have ever been in ( and not used do to the smell) They need HELP!!

This is the worst place ever to stay in. Cat feces everywhere, smells disgusting. Manager and employees are rude. Had people actually come to my door and want to sell me drugs. Employees just stand around and curse. Found dirty needle in room (thank god my kids did not find it) I had to check out ASAP. I would rather have slept in my car or in a card board box than this NASTY NASTY place.

I live in Fremont, CA and I think that the city chould take care of this place. It needs to be put out of business. The manager is awful, the place is trashy and it attracts all of the worse people. Fremont does not nees this dump.

This hotel is in serious need of a new Manager. and the rooms we wont even discuss. The Motel in a whole is a complete disaster. There is also some sort of problem with the "Permanent Guests"... police.
