Positive Reviews

Location close to Lake Merritt

You can step out of the hotel and stroll right onto Lake Merritt, through the walking paths to find yourself restaurants and a nice outdoors walk. The hotel is located nearby downtown Oakland and near interesting places to eat.

Bargain prices are hard to beat

Compared to what hotels run for in the Bay Area, visitors say this place is a fair price, especially given the location. Several guests noted that this inn was the cheapest of all the other options in the area. The rooms are basic and cheap, but it's bargain.

Breakfast is provided and adequate

The inn's breakfast won't be winning any culinary prizes any time soon. Guests said it was very basic, with coffee, juice and cereal. But it is provided and gives budget travellers an opportunity to save some cash on the meal.

Negative Reviews

Needs more cleaning

There have been complaints about damp towels, musty smells and filthy bathrooms from guests. Some guests even complained about possible bed bugs. Several guests were unhappy with the level of cleanliness at the hotel.

Sketchy behavior at the motel

Several guests reported seeing drug deals in the motel parking lot and even prostitutes going around the hallways. They said there seemed to be strange people hanging around the area and the motel that made them feel a little bit uncomfortable. The motel is also near a cluster of homeless people.

Some amenities just don't work

Guests reported various parts of the motel that just didn't function. Among them included the air conditioning unit, the Wi-Fi connection, the lamp, the mini-fridge and the TV. Several people said the motel seemed to have fallen into disrepair and people were also drying their clothes in the hallway.
