The rooms have just been remodeled and look very modern and are clean. The Motel is right next to a small pier and overlooks the Oakland embarcadero with a nice view. Parking can get pretty competitive at night even in their big parking lot.

Very nice room...modern and clean. Bed was decent but not great. Nice location for my purpose of heading to the Fox Theatre on NYE for a concert. Property is nice with the backside butting up against a marina. Paid wi-fi? More stars if the room was a tad cheaper...$100+ for a Motel 6? Make it $85 for a 4 star...

We were here for 6 days, visiting relatives in Alameda. We had some issues during the week of folks walking around all night. Only saw the police out in the parking lot one morning. But the last night made me give it this rating. Party next door, number of people there, yelling and loud. Music thru the walls. I went... More

Room was clean, front desk staff was friendly and the price was right. It was nice to be near the water and the area didn't seem too bad. I know others had some issues with the area/neighborhood, we didn't have a problem. I would definitely return!

I am here with my co-workers for a week or so. Other area hotels were sold out for an Oracle conference. I am not paying the bill, so I can't tell you what the room cost but I can imagine it's well under 100 bucks per night. On the plus side, it's in a fairly attractive waterfront area with an... More

Pros: The room seemed clean and the beds were comfortable, the water view was very nice. Close to Jack London square, Ferry terminal, and several restaurants. Cons: Room and bathroom are pretty small. No fridge, micro, or coffee (there was coffee at the reception). It's kinda dated (I don't care about this as long as everything is clean) Overall, I...

So, I read as many reviews as I could but still wasn't sure about this place. Until I got there. If you just looked at the location frontally, and did not look behind you, you'd think you were at a waterfront resort. Seriously. Now, the neighborhood is not terrific, and there isn't much in the way of nearby food (Subway... More

Located between a busy freeway and a pretty, small inlet with nice private boats. And, yes, seagulls chirping in the distance. (Freeway and seagull noise was not an issue, and there was no unnecessary dive-bombing or strafing by vicious attack birds.) I've stayed here twice. Clean room and bathroom. Decent size rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Ah... The Weather Channel,... More

This room was well done full access. It had wide doors, hard floors, good access in bathroom, first floor with no thresholds. Nicely done. Everything in this area is expensive, but they were reasonable for the area. Right on the water and near to Coast Guard Island.
