I stayed at this hotel on a business trip for one night.
The hotel is located close to the airport with plenty of restaurants and a Wal-Mart nearby. For those not familiar with the area it isn't the safest ever but you should be okay. Just use common sense when you go out. This isn't anything on the hotel because all the Oakland airport hotels are all in this area.
The staff were very nice although check-in was extremely slow. My group happened to show up when a shuttle bus arrived. Other than that check-in was smooth.
Parking was free you just have to provide them with your plate number and you place a tag in your car on the dash.
Try to request a room in the main building. They have rooms outside of the main building that are kind of just sitting in the middle of the parking lot away from everything. I don't know how I would have felt being in one of those.
I was located on the third floor of the main building.the room was okay, nothing fancy, but not bad.
I didn't have a chance to check out their restaurant as it was closed because I left so early in the morning.
Overall I would consider the hotel average. Nothing special. Decent for the price. If you are a nervous traveler you may feel more comfortable at a more enclosed hotel.
