Positive Reviews

Better inside than out.

Guests are generally pleased to find the inside of the property in better condition than outside. Most guests find rooms, which appear to have been remodelled in the recent past, to be clean and comfortable, if not a little basic.

A short drive to the airport.

The motel is located 4.5 miles from Oakland International Airport, making it a suitable choice for those planning a trip via the airport.

Most find owners to be friendly.

Barring a few reports to the contrary, the majority of guests seem to find the motel owners to be pleasant enough. Most report receiving a friendly welcome upon arrival.

Negative Reviews

Unpleasant area leads to safety concerns.

According to reports, the motel is located in one of Oakland's less desirable neighbourhoods. This location has led to concerns regarding illicit behaviour from locals, while the whole area is said to be very noisy after dark.

Very small rooms and bathrooms.

Past guests report that guestrooms are on the small side, making it difficult to move around. Additionally, bathrooms are said to be very compact, containing a shower but no tub. Travellers that like to space themselves out during their journeys make find this motel a little too cramped.

Some freshening up required.

Reports suggest that at least some rooms at the motel are in need of freshening up. Guests have complained about ill-fitting doors, outdated décor, well-worn bedding, and damaged furniture amongst other items.
