If I could I would give this hotel a -10. When we opened the door on our arrival the overpowering smell of deoderizing spray was so bad that we had to open the windows, and doors for an hour just to be able to breath. The guest towels had threads hanging from them but they were clean. Make sure you...

We mainly chose this hotel due to the price and location. I didn't have a car for one day, so it was a bit inconvenient having to take a bus or taxi from the Bart station. The young lady at the front desk was extremely helpful and courteous. The young man there on one of the days was equally nice....

Our suite at the Coral Reef was nice. It was a bit odd though. It had a full kitchen but nothing that would allow one to use the kitchen. There was only one plate and one set of silverware.. Nothing else. No pots, pans, utensils of any kind. Just that one service, a coffee maker, and paper cups. It did...

We have stayed here before, as there aren't many motels in Alameda. The staff is always helpful, and the location is good - a half-block from San Francisco Bay and a mall with grocery stores and a pharmacy. Not far from downtown Alameda, which is very vibrant. Crime is practically non-existent. Those are the plusses. The Coral Reef is going...

The rooms are not nearly as clean as the pictures indicate. The carpets and curtains were stained and the room had an odor. However, it was the size of a one bedroom apartment with full kitchen. The sofabed only slept one, although we had 2 kids who had to share it. Needs cleaning and updating and more pillows on the...

We booked a room via Orbitz and even called the hotel to confirm the room, which they DID, but when we went to check in, they "mysteriously" had no record of our reservation. The unhelpful man at the front desk refused to honor our confirmed reservation. We suspect it was denied because we had booked at a discounted price, but...

Every picture tells a story or so they say and this certainly did. The ad showed the hotel overlooking a lagoon, which some of it did, but the rest was rather like a fifties holiday camp.The rooms were very dated and needed refreshing, although it was clean thank goodness. Won't be going back.

These are crooks. I Booked this hotel for 4 nights with time ahead with a good deal. But in August the price goes up. These thieves have given my room to another person for a higher price. Well guess what time they decided to inform me, after 12.30 pm of the day before that I'm supposed to check in. By...

This is a return stay, having stayed for two nights in Oct. '11 when I paid 72/nite studio (tax included). Due to a coupon, luck and timing my stay this time was 56/nite (tax included) for a quiet one-bedroom apt.-style room located well away from the Bowling Alley and pool. STAY AWAY from the Bowling Alley NOISE. I was here...

We chose the Coral Reef Inn because the price was much more reasonable than the hotels in San Francisco. The downside was the drive into SF. Although it's not too far, we encountered delays at the toll booth at the Bay Bridge which increased our travel time. It took us 45 min to get to SF on a Friday morning....
