Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

Spending Xmas with my daughter and staying here because its close. First i have to say Alameda has only2-3 hotels. The room is ok. Could really use some room spray. Furniture is worn and cheap. Does not give usual 20% for Aarp or aaa only gives 10%. Room is not worth $148 a night. Sorry. Free breakfast is good.

Firstly, I wanted to thank you for taking the time to write a review. Secondly, I wanted to clear up some things you commented on in your review. There are actually 9 hotels in Alameda and we spent most of 2011 renovating the property. Our next issue is tackling the furniture, we will start renovating that in the early months of 2013. I'm sorry that the 10% discount for AAA/AARP was unsatisfactory to you but the amount of the discount is actually chosen by the property, some properties choose to do more than 10% and others choose to do less than 10%. It disheartens me that you did not enjoy your stay but I do appreciate your comments so that we can work on making our property even better. Thank you for your comments about our breakfast as well.

It was very nice stay for the night aftera Christmas party. Very easy location for the time of year. I would recommend to have the towels switched to a Bath sheet. This would be the only negative I found . It was very clean and neat. Breakfast was very good. the staff very helpful. Room was very nice.

This hotel is a wonderful bargain; I was skeptical about its proximity to Oakland, but found the neighborhood safe. Everything about the room was more than satisfactory. The hot breakfast was sumptuous, and the coffee to die for. the location is central to shopping and choice of dining options. Freeway access is convenient to access San Francisco, Berkeley and East Bay; internet service free; self-service laundry great for extended stays.

Our stay at Hawthorn Suites was great! The breakfast was delicious, and the service great. Our room (bedding, bathroom cleaniness, overall) was great. Although, the exterior windows were very dirty (requiring cleaning from the outside). We really didn't a good view because the windows were very dirty.
