We had seen the Coral Reef on other visits to Alameda and thought it looked like a decent place to stay. It was a disappointment, though, starting with the difficulty of parking in their narrow lot. On the plus side, our suite was large and appeared to have been a one-bedroom apartment dating back to the Sixties, pretty much untouched.... More

Whilst being slightly disappointed about the distance to the ferry terminal (very easy to park there however) the hotel was clean and the staff very helpful - whilst being a little tired the facilities were fine. Very close to brand new local amenities and a stones throw from the beach. Paid much more for far worse.

Rooms were larger than expected and provide all you need to self cater if you want to. Breakfast is basic but complimentary. Nice, clean pool and excellent laundry facilities. Staff helpful. Downside is distance from ferry to San Francisco, website suggests easily reachable but it's too long to walk and takes 15 minutes by car. Having said that we drove... More

This hotel is very old and dirty. The outside has peeling paint, but by the coast I could get past that. The room "Executive Suite" was spacious, but definitely not updated in a very long time. Cleanliness, I was concerned about stepping on the floor with out socks or shoes on. I found a reservation printout that was from a... More

The room is big. A place to stay if you are in a budget. It is close to shopping and fast food and other restaurant. But it is dated, not so clean and beds squeak. We were in the first floor and you can hear every movement upstairs. The wifi not so great but good enough to check your email.... More

It is nice to have the space of a one bedroom apartment. Especially if you are traveling for a while on business. Easy access to OAK airport. Alameda is nice and quiet. Close to restaurants and bars. You however get what you paid for. The on line photos make it look much nicer than it is. The place is tired... More

Nice location, good customer service. Been here for about 2.5 months due to work. Little kitchenettes, sink, stove, oven, mini fridge in all the rooms, the suites have 1 bedroom and a pull out couch, full size fridge and stove and oven. The TV are all old tube style and locked down like someone's going to try and steal them.... More

We were skeptical about booking here at the hotel because of the reviews, but it was actually a nice hotel. It's right by the bay beach. We booked a Family 2 queen suite. Very nice inside, just a bit out-dated. Didn't really like the breakfast in the morning. Parking is free, but not a lot of spaces. Wifi is not... More

I booked this location based on price and proximity to OAK, I wasn't sure what I was in for, luckily I was surprised.....it is located in the very pretty town of Alameda, a quaint town on the South Bay. The staff is very welcoming and curtious. This hotel is more like a small apartment complex with pool and laundry room.... More
