“Nightmare”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2009

Was difficult to find. Room was small and bare. Hole in ceiling of bathroom to nothing but maybe entrance for the rats. Would never repeat this experience. We asked for a wake up call that didn't happen and we nearly missed our flight. Do NOT recommend this place for anyone.

We chose this hotel because it had great value, we had great savings at this place as opposed to staying at a hotel in actual San Fran. The rooms were clean and had comfort. The staff gave us plenty info on sight seeing in the bay. Would recommend to other travelers looking to save while visiting SF.

Was here for a short trip to San Francisco.The description of the Motel doesn`t compare with the description in the advertizing,the rooms are dirty,the remote for tv was out of order and the shower/bathroom was also in a bad condition.Just a relatively cheap stay-no less,no more.

This place has been done over by a family working together. It's in a very funky part of Oakland--no walking-around after dark--in amongst several very dubious run-down motels.
But I've stayed here twice, and it's perfectly okay. If you're a traveler as opposed to just a tourist and you've been some other places around the world, this place is just fine. Clean, comfortable, friendly, and close to BART, which means close to the airport.

For under $60, in the SF/OAK area, you better watch out, the service and the rooms are terrible. The rooms look nothing like the pictures; only about a third of the rooms appear to be "remodeled."

This is a mistake you should never repeat.

  • Liked — the location was 2 blocks from the bart station to go to san francisco and onsite parking
  • Disliked — The room ammenities themselves: shower was terrible, walls needed painting, no remote for TV, No hangers for clothes, not even a microwave onsite for guests.
