“Noisy motel on the highway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Basic motel in a little bit noisy area next to freeway. We had booked our rooms couple hour advance via mobile app, and everything went fine at check in.

Our room was located in a building next to freeway and on firts floor, and you could hear everything from upstairs. Sometimes it felt like someone was going to fall through the ceiling. I would recommend a room in second floor. Didnt get any hot water from the shower at evening.

Complimentary breakfast was basic, cereals, white bread and oatmeal.

We stayed here overnight sleep in June and travelled as two couples.

The pros: it is close to freeway and to Oakland Coliseum for games. The cons: we prepaid a reservation and was told it was a hold even though we were told it was unrefundable. The carpet is greyed and loose, the shower curtain has mildew on it and the bathroom fan is rediculously loud. The furnishings have ding, rips and tears.

Cheap location, fine for a night or Two if you are on a tight budget. Area nothing special, gas station about 6 min walk away but wouldn`t walk there after dark.

My room was located in block near reception away from freeway so not really noisey but block by freeway probably not too good to sleep. Staff friendly.

I would really struggle to recommend this hotel, preferring to spend a bit more for a cleaner room. The location is not good, its in an odd area and actually a little hard to find. The room itself was not in good shape. Normally I would enjoy the in-room coffee service, however the coffee pot was filthy. The bedding is worn, the carpet is terribly stained, and the towels need to be replaced. I peaked in on breakfast, however judging from the overall cleanliness of the place, wouldnt risk eating there.

Looking for a cheap & clean room, we drove all over the place in Oakland, everything was either booked or overpriced, we seen this spot and when we entered, we instantly liked it. Very small property, but very well kept and clean. the pictures do no justice,the General Manager, Mrs. Patel was very nice and helpful. Our room was clean, spacious and surprisingly my picky husband LOVED it so much we came right back the next night. I have already recommended this spot to a few friends. we loved it, we will definitely return :) unfortunately we never got o at breakfast because we checked out early, but it looks awesome.

I chose Rodeway Inn because they usually have excellent beds for my aching back. This motel did NOT let me down. The bed was perfect! I've never seen a more clean motel room in my life. I've traveled to the East Coast and back to SF 4x and this motel surprised me. The staff is not very friendly so it's easy to be turned off at the start but if you look at the room I'm sure your confidence will be restored. This motel is in a sad looking part of Oakland but don't let that change your mind. The price is very low for such excellent quality. The decor of the room and the parking lot is gorgeous. No bugs or rodents. Very much worth the stay.

The hotel was fine; comfortable bed, friendly staff, clean room. The only downside to the property itself is that there was little to insulate the sound of the nearby freeway so I could hear trucks going by all night.

The location on the other hand was horrid. Its right in the middle of an industrial area near the airport so there people wearing gang colours and hookers all over the place.
