Stayed for two nights at the end of our road trip. The front desk staff couldn't do enough for us letting us check-in early and recommending places to go shopping/ eating etc. The room was large, bed was very comfy and the room was well equipped with a fridge, tea/coffee etc. we were on the top floor, only downside was no lift but at least it was quiet . Plenty of parking and just off the freeway.

The room smelled like cigarettes. Dogs were running up and down the hall and their owners were shouting after them (throughout the night, not just once). They were shouting after them and using profanity and frankly scaring me. Everything was disgusting. Breakfast felt like it consisted of a corner store banana, a plastic cereal bowl, and sugary juice. I did not get it. All the noise kept me up and completely ruined my day and the work meetings I had to get to - which I ended up being late to because I overslept! I have contacted management several times through email and received NO response. When I complained to the woman at the front desk she said "at least it's over for you now." I am considering reporting to FTC.

The rooms were the worst. The bed spreads and sheets were old. I didn't like anything about my two night stay. The breakfast was cheap and tasteless. The smells were like nothing I ever smelled before. They have no elevators the stairways smelled like urine. I should have guessed by the name, that I was in for a surprise.

Dear Guest, we are shocked to read your comments. We are disappointed if one of our guests leaves with less than first-rate experience. Our aim is to provide a clean, comfortable and affordable place to stay and this certainly does not sound how most of our guests experience our hotel. Most of our guests enjoy their stay with us. Please know that we are always here to help, so if there is ever any issues with your rooms, do let us know, we'd be happy to switch your rooms to ensure you have a fantastic stay with us as a vast majority of our guests do. We sincerely hope that you will give us another opportunity to restore your faith in our hotel and hospitality. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Customer Care Team

I travel for work over 100 nights a year. I know hotels!!! This one had promise - it looked clean and a good bargin...BUT it is in Hayward CA. When I checked in I asked if the parking lot was secure. I was told it was. The next morning I found that my work box had been stolen during the night. I was parked RIGHT outside the office window!!!! Additionally, there were about 60 international tourists staying there. They were very noisy and rude - shutting doors loudly AND USING THE hall way as a conference room. Their noise went on well past 9:00PM no one at the hotel tried to quiet them or expain acceptable hotel behavior. The "breakfast" is non existant....the WiFi is slow. Ok the room was clean.....spend a few more $$ and go to a Best Western or La Quinta. I won't be back hre. I'll sleep in the truck 1st.

When we first got there we went to our room and it was not clean AT ALL. However, they did immediately move us to another room and told us it just wasn't ready. This room was clean enough, but still not ideal for me. The housekeeper's hair could be found in various places. The rooms were noisy with noise coming from the very noisy street outside to the noisy people on the inside. This place is not for professionals. It is, however, a decent place to have a motel party. The place is carpeted on the inside which makes it hard to keep it really clean and it's just old as hell. The hallways and stairwells are visibly dirty. The hallways smell of cigarette smoke. It's decent enough to spend the night, but not comfortable enough to hang out in for days to do work or comfortably hang out otherwise. If you can afford it and you care about cleanliness and noise level, go elsewhere.
