Great value for the money, close proximity to airport and great security.
located close to the freeway The staffs lack of customer service.
Staff was absolutely amazing! Really respectful! And we were situated with our room with no complications. The room was not fully cleaned. The bathroom towels were wet. Trash was not taken out. Before giving someone a room make sure it's fully ready. Other than that we had a wonderful stay and we will return soon.
I asked for a non smoking wheel chair accesible room at the first floor, they didn't have it! They gave me a smoking room without facilities for for a handicap person. Neighbors we're loud all night! Bad neighborhood!
For the price it is so good. Maid service is not diarily
The bed was pretty comfortable. The room looked very new. The smell was very strong -- an odor of the like you get with a new mattress. There should be more ventilation.
No frills, but cost was good. I would bring your own towels, like any hotel/motel they are gross. Bathroom was nice and updated, much space to put your stuff out. TV Location Parking Towels Noise Some people/area/location (shady) You had to be buzzed in and the check in pepilepsy were behind bullet proof glass.
The bed was really comfortable and the room clean .Housekeeping was helpful!bathroom was cute Poor facilities such as hairdyer .Microwave . fridge....the location is far from downtown but the transportation is convenient.
Nice place. newly remodeled, friendly staff, free parking and WiFI
Even before I arrived I was impressed...they called me while I was on the road to inquire about my special needs (ground floor room only), and when I got there the staff was friendly and helpful, clearly Asian of some type but speaking excellent English; and then I got to the room. Amazing! It looked like it was 'fresh out of the box', clean and neat and very well appointed...a desk one can work a laptop at, a firm mattress and plenty of soft but sturdy pillows...and don't get me started on the glass-walled shower. I blanched a little at the price tag but I have to say, in the end, it was well worth it. Next time I visit the Emeryville/Oakland area I'll be staying there for sure!
Cleaned every day. Easy access to downtown. No problems with staff.cheap. It's not super quiet. I hear lots of traffic and loud people cross by the room but it is expected at a motel this cheap. Put the AC on to drown it out.
The location. The staff was incredible unprofessional and rude and there were bugs in the room and on the towels. Definitely will never stay here again.
Staff is very nice no coffee at 05.30am
Easy access to rooms Curtains to give me privacy from everyone outside looking in were broken, smelled really bad, no soap, no towels.
The staff was almost perfect. The front counter attendant was super friendly, courteous, and quick to check us in. His name was John and definitely was great. The location makes travelling to San Francisco fairly easy by car (25 minutes until downtown). The lake nearby (1-2 blocks) is very nice. The area doesn't feel ghetto, but definitely not super classy. There is graffiti/mural on the building behind the motel and it was so insanely gorgeous (my bathroom window had the perfect view of it). The place looks fairly maintained externally. Some Mexican guests next to us decided to blast some Mariachi/Folk Music at 2:30AM outside their room on an external speaker sitting in front of their room door for who knows what reason and we had to call the front desk and they handled the situation, but then our rude neighbors decided it'd be quieter to bring their speaker inside which made it even worse so after a second call the staff came to the room and told them in person to stop and then it was quiet. Situation was resolved in about 10 minutes in total. The paint is clean and doesn't look old and the outside of the building and parking lot also looked very clean. The staircases need some lights, both the adults (Sister and I) missed the last step coming down and luckily we didn't fall and just tripped. The bedroom we first got had hair on the sheets (I didn't personally see, but my sister had changed the room while I unloaded car and had a smoke). Our new room had used tissues in the drawer of the dresser. We had 2 Towels, 2 Washrags and 2 Hand towels for a 2 Double bed bedroom and it would definitely go a long way to do more washrags at minimum (I don't mind reusing towels, but not washrags and no washrag for face if you decide to shower). The floor had what looks like animal hair. So definitely if I had advice to this place, put out a ton of safety strips on the steps and lighting. Also, either fire your cleaning staff and hire some new ones, or start checking rooms they sign off on because they are not doing their job. Also, I would strongly suggest an enforced quiet time of 11PM weekdays and 12AM weekends and put a 1 warning policy before you kick people out. There are just some really small changes that would go a long long long way in improving the overall value in staying here. I didn't bother with the breakfast they offered (didn't even go in to look), but I heard it was pretty much slim offerings so a small variety increase would go a long way too.
Nothing had bed bugs I didn't like anything. It was awful
Poor and not totally safe neighborhood. At the motel many occupants were outside their rooms screaming and drinking alcohol. Room stank with bad smell, Floor needed vacuuming. Bathroom too small. No privacy, can hear next room's tenants speak. Weekend price increased significantly, probably to accommodate prostitution nearby.
The free parking was a plus. Everything else! The towels in the bathroom were dirty, the tv didn't work, there was hair on the bed, the shower was filthy, everything in the room was breaking, the bathroom didn't lock, the walls were so thin you could hear the people next door talking, the free breakfast was disgusting, and the whole place was right next to the ghetto!!! This is the first time I have decided not to live in a Hilton or Sheraton and I regret it so much. Never coming back here again! I'm embarrassed for booking this place and making my friends stay here!
Liked the flat panel TV and King bed Room had an odor
Relatively clean rooms, usual provisions (minus a coffee maker) Phone didn't work so couldn't call to tell them that the WiFi cut out every few seconds--when you're on business and have trouble accessing the internet while away, makes for an aggravating stay; shower didn't drain, so filled up with water; evening check-in staff were courteous but day check-out staff couldn't be bothered; ad said HBO---no HBO; people hanging out outside their rooms at night talking at the top of the lungs--good thing I brought ear plugs; Poor and not totally safe neighborhood---didn't leave room at all after getting back from being out
the Location to on the bay area was convenient for a business trip
Ilove how nice the staff was it was very easy to find it was bye the water I CANT WAIT TO STAY THERE AGAIN WASENT VERY MUCH PARKING GOT BACK KINDA LATE HAD TO PARK ON THE STREET MY CAR GOT SCRACHED
The clean room and the excellent cleaning staff. The bathroom sink kept stopping up.
For the price, it was clean and updated. I would stay there again. The only thing I would've liked was for the room to have carpet instead of wood-laminate floors, but I can understand why. It is easier to keep clean.
It is clean, room is fine, good location and value for the price.
The room was super cheap! But I guess you get what you pay for... Don't know that I would come back. The hotel did not provide free wifi, even though they advertised they did. In addition, they did not provide shampoo and the towels had human hair in them.
LEAVING Very small room, No Microwave oven, No refrigerator the Tv channels were very limitedthe parking spaces were almost all takenI had to park a didtance away from my roomat the bottom of the stairs near my room someone had discarded a cooked chicken
Entrance to the Motel is not marked. It is behind a McDonalds Restaurant and a Chevron Gas station and you must enter through the Chevron Gas Station parking lot. Drove around a few times to figure out how to access the Motel.
Really liked the clean, well-lit facility. Parking was not the easiest as several trucks took up multiple parking spaces.
Close to where I needed to be, not too pricey. Easy to make a reservation. I could be wrong, but I found it odd that there was no shampoo in the shower and no blow dryer. I just thought that was standard.
Clean rooms and well maintained grounds.
The upgraded room as far as the flooring. Fast check in. Also requested a downstairs room and they were able to accommodate me The bed was a little hard. Nothing else. Actually l, it was better than I thought it would be.
Accessibility to the freeway,restaurants and shopping center. the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The room had a bad odor and the bedding did not look clean.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
It was cheap It was gross
This place was horrible charged me an extra day when i booked it to arrive at 1 am. first room we where given was trashed with the bed flipped up against the wall staff members where rude, and the room i was finally given was dusty and smelled rate negative stars if i could!!!
The location was good, which made getting in and out fairly easy. They gave us a room that impregnated everything we owned with that stale, musty stench of cigarette smoke and ash. At first we didn't think it would be that bad, and we didn't really have the time to waste complaining. But wow, we should have asked to change rooms! Then again, they never gave us a choice for smoking / non-smoking rooms. Also no outlets conveniently located. AND, we got no maid service for the 3 days we were there. They just dropped off new towels. So at the end of 3 days we had a pile of 9 scratchy towels.
Room was clean. Bathroom smelled of strong disinfectant. No mold. Carpet decent. Shower was clean. Check in and check out were fast and easy. No electrical outlets at all on bed side of wall. We had to go by an extension cold to plug in sleep apnea machine. Small old tube TV and older decor.
No free WiFi
Inexpensive Inn. Good relationship money/ service received.
Clean, up dated and modern. New carpets and large shower. Location in the hood. But still was safe. No bathtub.
It's good enough for the price. The area isn't that bad but it's still Oakland. Housekeeping needs to happen later than 11am.
Location and price were ver good. Convenient to MacArthur bart station. The room and bedding were very clean. The room was not stocked with toilet paper. A coffee maker would be nice too.
Good location near BART, with easy access into San Francisco. Very helpful staff! Simple and clean, no thrills accommodation
Inexpensive Bad cleaning in bathroom, no restaurants around
Good value - clean and comfortable. The area is not that bad. Distance from San Francisco: you have to take a car and pay the bay bridge toll (going into SF only). public transportation (train) is one block from the hotel but it doesn't work eves and night.
It was the cheapest I could find in the SF area. The location is very sketchy and we had an unpleasant encounter with a passerby in the early morning. It would have been nice if there had been security.
Clean room and bathroom
The receptionist was rude!! He mistakenly overcharged me $10 yet showed zero apologetic attitude. Plus the towels had eyelashes and dust on them. Terrible experience.
Very clean, new TV and mini fridge. Wifi worked great. Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. I was checked in by Kiki (I believe) and she was very kind and professional. After reading some of the reviews online I was preparing myself for the worst, but was very pleasantly surprised. Perfect motel if you're on a budget and need to stay someplace close to the city. Pretty bad location in a seemingly bad neighborhood, but it was surprisingly quiet at night.
The hotel staff was decent. It may be a victim of its location more than the hotel itself. Cigarette on my car but no damage! It was in pretty poor condition. There was a bulb missing in one of the lamps. One lamp and the cable box were unplugged. The AC unit had gaps to the outdoors. If you book through kayak (hotels.com) you'll have to pay a cash deposit and ask for it back else they may kindly keep it. I took pictures of my room incase they tried to charge me for anything. I chose this location because it was within walking distance to bart and cheap. Upon arrival I decided it would be better to drive to bart. Doing it again I'd stay in another city, or at least go for a $100+ hotel maybe the neighboring days inn.
The clerk was empathetic and understanding, very helpful with cancellation information. I declined to stay at the motel after my arrival. Despite the feedback I had read, I was optimistic that the place would be suitable for a single overnight stay. I checked in, took the stairs to avoid a homeless man obtaining water from a hose spigot, and was met with a strong wave of marijuana when I opened the room door. I attempted to take the elevator back down to the front desk, but decided against that when the door opened shakily to reveal exposed wires and a used condom on the floor of the elevator cab. The front desk clerk was very empathetic, and when I explained "I can't stay here," he responded "I didn't think you could." The two police officers who arrived were very helpful with keeping the homeless man away from my vehicle as I left. I would recommend removing this hotel from all third party booking sites.
Cool staff at check in, decent price Half toilet paper only, had to use napkins, coffe maker cup wasn't cleaned out, bed frame felt broken, clogged bath tub
Location Room very poor quality, blood stains on the carpet, bathroom and sink dirty, not maintained. Too expensive for the quality of the room.
The crown lodge was not too far from my mother's house For some reason, our key wasn't always working
The staff was extremely helpful and the rooms were very clean and well kept. I had trouble with the cable in my first room, so the owner came in immediately and began working on it, exchanging cables and repairing the wall socket. He then apologized and offered to upgrade me to a different room for the inconvenience. The neighborhood wasn't the best in the world, but it wasn't terrible, either.
The staff was confused and confusing. The man at the front desk did not know how to retrive our reservation. Even with no other distractions, check-in took nearly 45 min!!! Quality of room was poor and I did not feel safe in the neighborhood.
Great value, location, and convenience. Friendly staff
The location on the highway was good and convenient for traveling through. And the price was good for the area. The room was very nicely kept and clean. The outdoor pool was open, though not heated, so was cool, but acceptable for the time of year. The flat screen tv worked well, as did the HBO channels. The king bed was comfortable. The shower head put out a very firm spray which was uncomfortable to use for very long. The air conditioning unit worked well, but didn't have a setting for cooling with the fan on continuously. The unit cycles on and off as cooling is needed, and it was quiet; we like the ones that the fan stays on for background noise. There were no tissues in the room. We requested them at the office, and the attendant said he would bring some to the room, which he never did. Maybe they don't supply them anymore. We could hear the tv from the adjoining room, but it was quiet after 10 pm so didn't bother us.
Cheap. Wifi didn't work and they didn't inform me before I checked in that the pool was under construction.
