“More for the buck!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

If you want an affordable and clean place to stay, the Bay Breeze Inn is just 10 min south if San Fran where I do business. Rates were cheap, and unlike some places in San Francisco parking was free and gated. Check out room #105, my advice

Seems like you must have inadvertently looked at a room which was not clean yet. The check in time is 3pm and you might have seen a room which was yet to be cleaned by the housekeepers prior to 3pm. We maintain prestige cleanliness in all our rooms.

This is a high-value motel at very low cost, including a lower-cost weekly rate. I've stayed
at Bay Breeze Inn for weeks at a time. It is centrally located, including only blocks from High Street into beautiful Alameda with its large South Shore Shopping Center, beaches, etc. It
is very friendly, run by a three-generations family. The nearby freeway's noise can actually
be soothing at night. The bathroom has a circular partially-enclosed shower unit that is
especially nice. In summary, you get everything you need and more without the frills and higher costs elsewhere.

This is a great value for just a place to sleep after long days of touring SF and wine country. We drove up from LA on the Pacific Coast Highway and had a tour booked the next day in SF so needed a convenient place to zip into the city. Although the immediate neighborhood looks very sketchy, the hotel is right off of the freeway and better yet, is just one mile from the BART train station so we didn't even have to drive in. The parking lot is secured so we were not concerned about theft. We were concerned about freeway noise, but our room was on the street side so heard nothing from the freeway. However we did hear the early morning trains sounding off as they approached the station. Our room was very clean and beds were very comfortable, one of the best I've slept in. My primary complaint is that there is no coffee available either in the rooms or in the office so we had to grab it at the gas stations down the street. Overall a great experience and I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the freeway side and possibly in between freeway and street side. Not sure...

Drove over from SF after a Giants Game at AT&T. Friendly greeting at check-in, very secure parking area, absolutely spotless room, and very comfortable bed. Freeway noise wasn't a problem for the wife and I. It's hard to escape that whoosing sound where ever you go in urban California. Much easier to deal with than low flying aircraft, or train noise that comes and goes at random. Next time we're back in the SF Bay Area, we'll know where to look for inexpensive lodging.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel twice on our coastal trip in California. It was very clean and modern with a great staff and very well appointed rooms. Beds are very comfortable, bathrooms gorgeous, hotel well kept. We plan to go back again and again.

Room Tip: Get rooms away from freeway as it may be noisy. Garden facing rooms are very quite.

I stayed here on a last minute booking due to good reviews and boy was I wrong, first the location is in a high crime area dangerous, next I moved the covers only to find pubic hairs all over the bed. the sheets and towels are stained, this place is obviously used for hourly services. the last straw was when I found a used condom. I was in this place for no more than 10min. luckily I had just booked it online and they gave me a full refund. do not recommend.
