“Delivered What Was Expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

This is a motel right by the airport that is convenient and affordable if you need a place to sleep before an early morning flight. The shuttle drivers were amazingly nice, check in easy and friendly, the room clean enough, there were balconies to each room which faced a grassy area with cats, a green area, a simple breakfast (coffee, toast, pastries and some cereal), a small fridge in the room, T.V. and Free Wifi.

It is hard to rate it as it is no frills in many ways, but I only paid about $60 a night so for that price it delivered. To give it 5 starts makes it seem extraordinary when it is like a 3 star motel.

The distracting bits were: the coffee maker in the room was so dirty and the pot so cloudy I couldn't make coffee in it. They say it has been renovated but the carpets should have been pulled up. But that is about it as far as complaints. Oh and the cold and hot knobs in the shower seemed to be reversed.
I wouldn't stay here for a family vacation as the area is somewhat dreary, it is by the airport after all. But it was quiet and comfortable and the staff seemed determined to make my stay enjoyable which I appreciate.

Room Tip: There was some work going on with the Bart Train so the desk clerk put me in a quiet room with 2 bed...

We recently stayed at the Econo Lodge prior to our trip. We utilized the park and fly rate and it worked out well for us. The rate was reasonable and the room was clean with comfortable beds.
The breakfast was simple but it was fine for us. The airport shuttle was efficient and right on time for our drop off and they picked us up promptly when we called for pick up when we returned. The driver even dropped us off right at our car, which was very considerate.

The bed was really comfy as well as the pillows. Room was really spacious and the girl at the Front Desk was really nice when we checked in. Breakfast is just ok, but really nothing to complain about. I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is terribly dated. The property has a Mexican resturant on it and the night we were staying there they had a wedding with a very loud Banda Band playing untill midnight. After they shut down the wedding many people went and sat outside and partied till 1 or so. After that they did doughnuts on Hegenberger road as they left. About 5 in the morn a car's alarm went off in the parking lot for about a hour. We had a 6 am flight so it was our wake up call, that is assuming we slept.

I came with my family for 2 days and it was the more bad experience that i have had in my life.
The odour inside of the rooms are horrible, i requested the customer service to change a room but they ignored us.
The carpet is extremely dirty and the bathroom and toilet are gross
Do not waste your money and stay away from them .
If you want to be contaminated and sick stay at this hotel

Room Tip: Do not stay at this hotel is very dirty and you can get contaminated with different illnesses

The staff was great, but the property was terrifying! There was a bullet hole in the wall in our room! I refused to have any one member of our group go anywhere by themselves. The shower was one of those tiny European jobs, were there is barely enough room to raise your arms and wash your hair. I would not have stayed here if the area hotels had not been sold out. Will not stay again!

Right outside the Oakland Airport gate is a place that, if you are old enough, will remind you of your mom and dad driving the station wagon right up to your room. You couldn’t wait to jump in the pool while they would relax, aluminum tumblers in hand, by a courtyard fountain under some palms and cumquat trees. Today the motel is a little worn out while it tries to catch up to the standards of the generic sleep boxes of everywhere USA. So enjoy the funkiness while it lasts and don’t expect too much. You may even wish, fleetingly, that some investor would buy up these old places and restore them to their former glory. But it would not be the same, just another formula, joining the ranks of the more expensive hotels across the street with their interchangeable names, standard fares and sports bars.
