“Good location, decent hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

I stayed in this hotel at the end of February for one night. The location is good with a lot of shopping and dining within walking distance. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. It was nothing special, but I have no complaints either. The view from the front of the hotel is nice, though there are shops and traffic in between, you have a nice view of the bay. You are extremely close to Oakland Bay Bridge into San Fransisco, in fact you can see it, and if you wanted to visit the city but not stay there, this hotel would be a good alternative. Traffic can get snarled around rush hour, but hey it's California. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room up high facing the water.

This hotel was well situated in the middle of Emeryville. It was within walking distance to a great market and a big mall. Check team were really friendly and the breakfast was good. Unfortunately the rooms were a bit tired and are ready for a renovation. For the price I would rather look at one of the other hotels across the street.

Previous visits were OK, but they have really done a great job lately. The staff was just amazing....polite, friendly, (without being overwhelming, but still very outgoing...perfect). The room is a standard Four Points, but I have to just commend the staff. Everyone I met was outgoing and downright genuinely concerned that I was comfortable, and enjoyed the property. Very well done!!!

Didn't try the pool (a little chilly for that). Free parking is convenient and appreciated. Great location just off the freeway and across the street (walkable) to a lot of very good shopping (and a really nice Trader Joes).

I stay here frequently and have been doing so for about 5 years whenever I need a great place to stay with friends for fun. It's 10 minutes from San Francisco in no traffic and it's a in a great area with lots of shopping, even a Trader Joe's grocery. It's near a movie theater and public transport and a major freeway interchange as well as the Bay Bridge. When I need to be doing a lot of running about the Bay Area and sightseeing with friends it's perfect! I'm a local and I know the area well but having an affordable hotel to stay in when friends visit is important!

Had our 2nd great stay at Four Points Bay Bridge. . Everyone at this property has a smile and goes out of their way to make certain guests receive great service. When we arrived, we found that our reservation wasn't complete due to unfaxed information. Catherine went ahead and checked us in and told us we could call and have the info faxed. It was taken care of quickly and efficiently. Staff also made two other reservations for us at great rates. We will always make our reservations at the Bay Bridge Four Points when we come to San Francisco. It's easy to find and close to all the places we love to visit. Rooms are quite nice and exceptionally clean. Thanks again Catherine and the other congenial staff at Four Points. Frank & Maureen

Room Tip: Just ask for what you want.

My Bf and I planned our New years eve to spend in San Francisco.If you looked around, prices range about $350 and up for a one night stay in the city. I booked this the day of NYE as it was our last resort as everything in SF was too expensive. Our two options were to stay at SF airpport which was 30 minutes from where we were headed (downtown Sf) or Emeryville which was over the bridge and 10 minutes away. Being New Years eve, you dont want to drive too far. I checked into the hotel around 9 P.M, the hotel employee that was working was very friendly considering it to be NYE. I noticed a bar across the room. On our way up to our room, we noticed the elevator needed some upgrading, it was squeaking. We entered the room, we got a king size bed, came with a small sofa chair, writing desk, flat screen tv, however i thought it was weird because the tv wasnt in front of the bed, it was to the left of the bed. There was a marbled sink, and a bathroom that was really small. The decor was okay, kind of basic but nothing too fancy. I thought it was cool how they did have a microwave and refrigerator which came in handy because at most places I have been too, they charge for that. I brought 4 bottles of water, and it was awesome the hotel gave us 2 free water bottles which was also a plus! However, i did find a stain on the bed sheet and some stains on the hand/face towels =( This was a pretty clean room, nothing majorly to complain about. overall, this was a pleasant stay for us. Emeryville was a great place to stay, considering the easy access to SF, short walking distance to dining out, shopping, or great view of the East Bay!

On a recent vacation to the SF Bay Area, my wife and I used a travel site to book our room. This site makes you take pot luck for a room, we have had run down shabby rooms in "4 star" hotels. Four Points Bay Bridge gets it right in service, amenities and location. A pleasant professional staff clean comfortable rooms, they could improve the beds a little. (Shakey bed frames for big people) The surrounding area has an outlet mall and a few restaurants,but Berkely is 5 minutes away with world class restaurants. Hotel restaurant is overpriced and sterile,but adequite for quick meals. May stay again if need be.

Room Tip: Bay side has better views.
