We like to think of ourselves as "Connoisseurs of Cheap Motels" but in reality, we just aren't picky. When you go on vacation you really only sleep and wake up in the room, so why waste money on it? We go to a music festival in Oakland every year and the very nice, cheap motel across the street (our last review) was booked. So we stayed here. Mistake! It had been recently renovated, cosmetically at least. But the plumbing barely worked. The maids demanded that they come in to clean at 10:30am, if that's not convenient too bad! No towels or toilet paper for you! Wifi didn't work. Not even a fitted sheet on the bed. Price jacked up to $100 a night because of the event. This is not the place to stay in this area!

Room tip: Don't stay here!

Room was actually decent and clean, but the owners are not very friendly or nice. The guy who checked us in was not very pleasant, but his son was worse... Told my buddy he had to park in the street even though I included him on the reservation! To top it off, when we returned from dinner there was plenty of parking in the parking lot... Think he was saving them for visiting family or friends. Hot water took forever to get "hot"... then there was no water pressure... Most likely will find a place with nicer folks closer to the restaurants.

receptionist is behind the bulletproof glass, why? There is probably very good reason. This area is situated under highway... all aroud are dark streets, strange people, we did not feel safety in this part of oakland. On the streets you can smell weed everywhere...not a nice place. But we chose this place because of the price. It takes 30 minutes from this motel to the golden gate bridge by car...

rooms are standard equipted, bathroom was brand new, nice shower corner.

I was positively suprised this room in motel.On internet room pictures looked poor, many bad travellers opinions.In fact motel is quite good,rooms are refubrished,new large tv,very nice and modern bathroom.Lady in reception which gave us keys could be more polite and professional.Two streets along is BART train station which take you to San Francisco downtown in 20 minutes(return ticket 7-8 dollars).Neighbourhood of motel seems to be dangerous,so walk to motel from train station after dark can be risky(I returned before dark).If you planning return after dark you can park your car on car park which is close to train station, cost few dollars and after your trip to SF can drive safely to motel parking.Reccomend this motel but must be careful on the way from and to motel keep your valuables and mobile hidden.Motel price is reasonable comparing to San Francisco,free car park,security cameras.

This is a basic Budget hotel in a non-gentrified area of Oakland. The area isn't dangerous but it is scruffy. The hotel offers basic, clean rooms with small refrigerator, microwaves and large flat screen TVs. It is about a 5 minute walk to MacArthur Station.
