The hotel is new, great swim pool, my daughter really enjoy it...the hotel is very clean with great showers, very comfortable beds, great location, near to Jack London Square and Ferry to SF.. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. Is a great hotel for a weekend away from home. I will definitely go back!

1. You are expecting a hotel. In spite of the name, this is a motel. 2. You are sensitive to odors. There is a chemical (cleaning product?) smell in the halls and rooms. On a positive note, the windows do open. 3. You are sensitive to sounds. You may get lucky and not have loud neighbors as I did, but...

I walked into my room and felt like I had been taken back to 1962. The hallway had the smell of old carpet shampoo combined with mildew. The room was cramped and the bathroom small. The train sounded like it was going through the room next door. If there are no rooms available except at the Z, I reccomend sleeping...

We booked this hotel on the Southwest website and paid $160 per night on a Friday. It was a bit less expensive than the other hotels in the area. It is located, as many have said in close proximity to the Amtrak and you will hear train whistles blowing every 2 to 3 hours. It didn't really bother us or...

So having seen the reviews on here we took the dive and opted for a "motel" experience and booked a room at the Z Hotel. Check in was simple and the staff were utterly lovely, upgrading the room and giving hints and tips of the local area. Going up to the room it was exactly as expected, just like the...

We chose this hotel because we were departing on the Amtrak the next morning and wanted something convenient to the station in Oakland. This is a boutique hotel that has been recently taken over by the new management (the sign out front is still a temporary one hung over the old, permanent one). We arrived via BART after dropping off...

Liked the hotel--recently refurbished, price is right, staff very helpful and friendly. There is a nearby train that runs, so beware. I managed to sleep through it. Buttercup is next door, so there's available restaurants.
