“About as bad as it gets”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

This is a no smoking room and it reeks. I guess it is smoke, but maybe it is something else. In any case it is disgusting. The bathroom fan is falling out of the ceiling. The room is reasonably clean and the wifi is pretty good. The tv is a 20 year old tube model.

Trust me we won't be back again.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We checked in after 10 pm and it was full so we were glad to have a reservation. The room had a stale smell, but it wasn't too bad and we got used to it. There were some truckers and other early risers who made lots of noise getting going in the morning, so if you want to sleep in, perhaps you should get a room on the side of the building facing the pool.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool might be quieter in the morning.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

A dog show was in town and this was the only place left. Should have kept driving. Charged almost $90 for a room so smelly my wife was nauseous. And a crazy scary gang banger type distraught man stood on the rail outside our room for hours crying and staring at us like a mad man every time we stepped out. Desk clerk said he is a regular and not to worry about him. Our clothes stank so bad after we left we needed to change. My wife couldn't even eat breakfast. And they parked a refrigerated trailer out side the room running all night with diesel stink and loud motor. No sleep was had that sad night. The desk clerk did not care in the least, and the "coffee" was just brown water.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else

I stayed here for two weeks. As far as I could tell, this was the only place in the area that did not charge an arm and a leg. This place never let me down. The front desk was friendly, and the management seemed to run a tight ship.

Its a Motel Six, so don't expect a mint on your pillow, but if you are looking for a clean place to stay where you are not fearing for your life or emptying your pockets, this is a solid choice.

Big plus: BART station within walking distance. The Bay is within easy reach.

Clean Motel 6 right off freeway on Hopyard Road which leads to the Alameda County Fairgrounds where the Good Guys Car Shows are held. Lots of parking with about a half dozen long parking slots for trucks & car hauling trailers. Pleasant office staff, night guy moved his personal car to give us an up front parking place for our 1950 Ford Woodie when we got back late one night. Chevron Mini-Mart next door. Dennys Restaurant across the street.

I was happily surprised by the comfort of my room. Attending a dog show with my two dogs, it has worked very well. The bed was comfortable, the TV good, the room clean. Excellent location. The wifi service for $2.99 a day is reasonable, though it may not be available in every room.
