Queen bed room with only one bed. I was under the impression there would be two beds.
It was in a nice convenient location. The staff were great. The Everything was clean and neat. Room smelled like smoke even though it was a non smoking room. I should have complained and asked for another room or some spray to kill the nasty smoke smell. Restroom did not have a privacy lock and the vent did not work.
Price. The bed was totally worn out.
Clean, simple room, great for when you just need a place to sleep and shower. Hot water stays hot so you don't have to worry about your travel companion using it all up. Love the grocery store and restaurant options across the street. Safe area. The toilet seat looked a little worse for wear, I couldn't tell if it was dirty or just showing its age. Also, the lighting by the mirror is too harsh and makes applying make-up a difficult task.
Umm nothing For the price of this hotel it wasn't what I expected
I always come back. Very nice staff. Clean room. Quiet atmosphere.
The close to pinole The front desk attendant is hard to understand and is rude at times and not willing to make compromise for long time Coustmer. Usual one star hotel without a lot of low lifes
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Clean, location, good price Non smoking room smelled, no lid for the toilet, no shampoo/conditioner and extra charge for wifi
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!
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.
the Location to on the bay area was convenient for a business trip
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.
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 clean room and the excellent cleaning staff. The bathroom sink kept stopping up.
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!
Staff is very nice no coffee at 05.30am
there was nothing worth liking at this hotel. The check in was dealt with in the most unprofessional manner I've ever seen in any hotel. The uneducated, complaining, screaming check-in staff would have been comedy material if it wasn't for the fact they were responsible for getting me to a good night's sleep. The hotel was very rundown, moldy curtains, loud banging air conditioner, drunk guests on the balcony and walkways at 3am, smelly rooms. Overalll - flat out disaster and not even worth 1 star.
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
Liked the flat panel TV and King bed Room had an odor
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.
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
Nothing had bed bugs I didn't like anything. It was awful
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.
Nice place. newly remodeled, friendly staff, free parking and WiFI
For the price it is so good. Maid service is not diarily
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.
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.
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.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
Older well maintained property which was very clean. The manager telephoned me at 9:30 p.m to ask when I would be arriving. Hotel requires 2 days notice to cancel. There is no real breakfast and the price is too high for the product.
Updated furnishings inside the room (queen bed, microwave and frig, Jacuzzi bathtub) with exception of two old, worn arm chairs. very good bathroom facilities. No noise insulation, small, tight parking lot, other guests warming up their diesel pickups for 15 minutes at 5:30 am. No complimentary breakfast. Inconsistent maid service. No cable TV guide in room.
The bathroom looked recently remodeled with granite shower walls, counter, and floor tile. There was a large flat screen TV with directTV. The room had a refrigerator and microwave. The bed was comfortable. The location was good. The price was good. The room was dark and small. There is traffic noise from the street. Worst of all the room smelled sour and the air coming from the heater - AC unit was stale smelling. The continental breakfast was very basic, but I didn't expect much for the price we paid.
Nice bathroom, had mini fridge and microwave, very quiet. Beds were quite small, room could be cleaner, quite expensive for what we received.
The only thing I liked about my stay here was its proximity to various business: Acme Bread, 4th Street shopping No AC - just a small round fan hung up on the corner of the room, old musty carpeting with a film on it (had to go to walgreens to purchase socks to wear when in), old linens/curtains/scratchy towels, indifferent help desk.
That it was in the city of Berkeley. Filthy, run down with smelly rooms. There was an unstable patron who required an ambulance and several police cars. Blocking my car and more than probably scratching it. All this occurred late and was very disruptive to our sleep.
Good value for the money. Easy access to good restaurants and within walking distance (10-15min) from the bart. Great friendly staff. We got upgraded to a larger room (since they had the vacancy) for no extra cost, and also left our car there for the day (free parking) after checking out. Hotel is very old, and the facilities are run down. It was ok as a place to crash at for a night, but it's not a "nice" hotel by any stretch of the imagination.
If you like good old-fashioned funky motels, you'll love this one. It could be anywhere in America, but it is a bargain in Berkeley. And the sushi bar which shares the parking lot is terrific.
Clean room and bathroom
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.
Inexpensive Bad cleaning in bathroom, no restaurants around
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.
Clean, up dated and modern. New carpets and large shower. Location in the hood. But still was safe. No bathtub.
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.
Inexpensive Inn. Good relationship money/ service received.
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.
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.
Good location near BART, with easy access into San Francisco. Very helpful staff! Simple and clean, no thrills accommodation
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.
Clean and comfy N/A
Easy to find. Nothing like photos. Grass is dead, pool is dirty, no lounge chairs. Room smelled like cat pee. Dog barking all night.
When we first got to our room, the very first thing was the light/fan in the bathroom screamed! at us. We called the front desk. After the light warmed up it stopped. Then the toilet was backed up they had to give us a plunger! I don't think the floor has ever been moped! The fan vent was thick with dust and cobwebs. Our friends that stayed in another room had to go to the front desk because their shower head broke in their hands when they went to use it. The staff was very nice.
The price was good for our budget. I'm bummed that they decided to close the pool forever, we've always enjoyed being able to use it on previous trips. We also found 4 cockroaches and the words on the ac were rubbed off so it was kinda hard to know how to get it to work. Plus it leaked
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
The water pressure of the shower Didn't like the lumpy bed old blanket and quilt, the room smelled smoky even though it said it was non smoking; when I got home my clothes smelt like smoke. The room was out dated and in need of a great remodel.
Description said there was an outdoor pool, there was not. Not a great place to take your family, felt unsafe.
Easy access to interstate Bed, noise, bathroom tub not draining
Close to my location of traveled purpose Car was damaged
The location was easy to get and out of. The room was very small and lacked basic amenities like an iron and blow dryer. We booked the hotel because it had a pool but we're shocked to find it was filed with dirt. Hotel staff said they filled in the pool last month.
I really liked the location, it was easy on/off the freeway. The motel had great customer service!! ;) The mattress was too firm which made the bed very uncomfortable.
Clean, big, nicely decorated only serve coffee in morning
Short walk to Six Flags Dirty sheets, cochroaches in room.
Good value, friendly staff, comfortable
Nothing! Asked for s non smoking room at 10:30 am came back at 8, had to move multiple people around to get us non smoking . My husband and 2 year old have chronic asthma this is why it is a necessity. When I got to room it was clearly a smoking room. Immediately went to check out and employee says "well we try to keep it non smoking, but doesn't always happen" they gave me refund however had to travel 30 minutes away for another hotel! Not a safe area either.
Really didn't feel too safe here.. Make friends with the night security guard to have a second set of eyes on your car. Sketchy neighborhood!
Nothing!!!!! to be so close to Six Flaggs Vallejo, it sucks rooms are smelly and dirty. My room was ready had to wait over 30minutes, overall don't want to stay again!!! 1st my room was not ready, after I stopped at 10:30am and told the lady on the front office I was heading to six flaggs, I would be back at 3pm. "She said yes at 3pm" it was not ready. 2nd room was disgusting and smelled really bad. 3rd no toilet paper and when I ask at 5pm she said room not ready??? Really suck, I regret booking this hotel I felt bad for my son because it was his birthday.
made a reservation but they didn't have a room with 2 beds when i arrived
It was better than sleeping in my car because I could shower and us a toilette. The front desk staff. When we checked in the robotic like staff at the front desk said the computer was down and didn't have our reservation information. Even after I showed him the email confirmation for $52 he insisted that since he didn't have his system up and it was the weekend the rate was $70. This place wasn't even worth $50! We said no thanks and were about to leave when he said he'd honor the price we reserved it at. How frustrating when I went to the trouble to book this in advance and I have to argue how reservations work to someone who's in the lodging industry. The room is an old run down room recently painted and maybe recarpeted. Same old furniture and smell. We literally just needed a place to sleep for 8 hrs and a shower but I won't be doing this again.
The rate was low and they claimed to be a 3 star hotel The main complaint I have about our stay is that the shower only had luke warm water with a shower head that was at a height for a child. I am 5'3 and it was barely tall enough for me to fit under. The water never got warmer than tepid and there was no pressure. The TV cable was run through the wall like it had been spliced several times to go to each of the rooms and the signal was grainy because of it. This hotel should be a 1 1/2 to 2 star rating at best.
Nothing. Location is right next to the free way we got the worst rooms of the place. Roach infested, dirty, smelly , the side closer to the free way. I hated it. We stayed for two nights. When we arrived, at about midnight, there were 3 cops just hanging out patrolling the place, and bolted security was a female. This place looked to ghetto for me. We all woke up got ready went to sixflags all day and when we got back one of my 4 rooms wreaked like weed. Not a single one of us smoke. Then the guy at the FD tried to accuse us of smoking in the room when we were gone all day, this place is horrible every room had a roach. DO NOT STAY HERE!
Despite the official no refund policy, the manager did give us back almost all of our money, when we decided not to stay. Everything was filthy: the door, walls, carpet with many many stains, nightstand. The tub surface was peeling away. The room smelled terrible. The cover, sheets, blanket and pillowcases were all stained. The image on the TV looked very grainy.
