Overall GREAT! Great room and great price. Sabina was working when I arrived. She helped checked me in and she was great. Very friendly and helpful. Able to answer all my questions. She is also local so is able to help out with local knowledge. One or two suggestions could be made for the room but nothing worth going into detail here (mgmt may reach out to me for info). I will DEFINITELY be returning.

So I found myself stranded in Oakland after a series of unfortunate events. I stumbled upon this place and was checked in with Grace who was very helpful and welcoming. Clean, comfortable rooms which came with a keurig machine. Seemingly decent location with plenty of restaurants relatively near (though didn't get to explore that much.) Also, not too expensive. Definitely would stay here again.

BE VERY CAREFUL! I had a reservation a YEAR AGO at this hotel but when I pulled up to the location, I did not feel safe staying there, so my company moved me to another hotel. (I never even went inside) Now, a YEAR LATER, they charged my credit card!! I have tried to contact them by phone and email 4 TIMES (including their corporate office), with no response. I am obviously disputing this charge. Shame on this hotel for not just trying to charge for a stay that never happened, but for not bothering to return a call!

This is an excellent hotel. As an Oakland native I am really proud of what has been done with this property. My boyfriend and I wanted a little staycation and the room was amazing. The young lady working named Sabina was so helpful. She walked me back to my room to ensure my new key cards worked after I had trouble with them. She went out of her way to accommodate us in so many ways, she really helped make the stay. The huge bed and clean room was lovely! Decor was also nice.

The location was good for me, the staff was friendly, the room was clean, the beds were comfortable, the internet was good, the decor was stylish. It did for me what I wanted done. On the other hand, the place was recently renovated and not all the work seems quite done yet. A couple little things need to be fixed in the room, for example, the smoke detector wasn't seated properly and was hanging from the ceiling by a cord. The drain to the shower was cracked and should be replaced. No big deal, but not perfect either. I liked that the floor was tile and it helped me feel like everything was clean. My room was on the first floor so I kept my shade drawn all the time, which made the room seem darker than it needed to be. If its loud outside the room you will hear it.
