This must be what it is like to live in a US Embassy. Inside the walled compound it is very well kept with roses, tile on the walkways and a nice clean fairly recently updated standard hotel room. Outside is where Oakland has a lot of its razor wire and graffiti. We walked a mile or mile and a half down Coliseum way to O.co Coliseum to see an A's game. There is a lot of just "stuff" stored behind chain link fences with razor wire at the top. And of lot of it is kind of junky and just thrown in there and again, lots and lots of graffiti. I wasn't scared, but I was glad it was a day game. The hotel is fine and if I'd only driven in not had such a good walking view of the area my impression would be better. It is right off the interstate and not that far away from the Bay Bridge into San Francisco. Decent price. Decent room. But I've never seen a hotel in such an odd area.
