We enjoyed our Friday night stay at the Coral Reef Inn & Suites. The location was great (Alameda is such a great town) and it was a treat to walk along the shore and look across the Bay into San Francisco.
The Coral Reef is as tidy- outside is nicely painted. Inside, the room never felt too dirty. However, the decor was crazy dated. The wallpaper border was straight out of the late 1980s, the couch and chair were both upholstered in a fabric that I swear you would have seen in Brandon Walsh's house on 90210 in the early 1990s. And, the little Zenith TV, sans operational remote, just topped off the look and feel of the room.
Overall, we felt safe there, got a quiet night's sleep, and would consider staying again on a future trip.More
