I stayed here for 2 nights. Very comfortable bed, clean bedding, comfortable pillows. The carpet was clean and so was the bathroom. Nice desk staff. Would definitely stay here again if I am in the area.

I got three rooms for my whole family at this hotel which is straight across a Safeway supermarket. We replenished at the supermarket and bought water plus snacks there before going to San Francisco to sight see each morning. There are some rooms that need air conditioner upgrade as some of the controls don't work that great. The rooms and... More

We have lowered our expectations for this hotel/lodge/Inn. So when we checked in and saw the room we did not feel disappointed. The room is definitely not new, a little dark at night and the toilet bowl is old (with discoloration at the bottom- looks like the white color was scraped). But for the price and location it was definitely... More

I was exhausted from driving and took a chance on checking in at 11:00 am. The Asian gentleman in the front registration desk was super compassionate and gave me the wonderful room I needed early. He totally tried to accommodate me. He was super friendly and super professional. Room was quiet and good size for the price. Nice area, I... More

I believe it was the best deal in the area. The room was clean, good bed, enough t.v. channels,etc. The staff was pleasant and helpful. I would stay there again. The parking was ok too. The motel is also within walking distance to a mall.

We had to stay here for a night before we took our early morning flight from the Oakland Airport. The room was clean and comfortable. Wi-fi was reasonably good. We had lesser expectation and were prepared to spend the night here, but it somehow turned out to be a nicer option.

On the bright side: The Econo Lodge is the cheapest place in the area, they offer toast, donuts, coffee and juice in the morning, and they have a pool and jacuzzi--both with handicap lifts. The place is close to shopping, restaurants and public transportation, and the folks who work here are nice enough. They offer free wifi, but it was... More
