The filthiest place I have ever stayed. There was heavy smell of dirt inside, towels were unwashed and smelled foul, and there was pubic hair on the shower wall. Chairs and carpets were covered in old grimy spots, and most importantly, bed sheets have bed bugs and scabies. The person travelling with me had to go to dermatologist for treatment. I think it's a shame that Booking.com would even list a hotel like that on their listing. I have booked with Booking.com around the world and stayed and clean and nice hotels. This one, however, was a disgust.
Price; near Lake Merritt
Everything else about this location.
It had Wi Fi, fridge and micro.
There was a bad odor, the shower curtain was moldy, the window tracts were gross. The area at night was a little scary for a woman. I had to ask for towels.
Not very Clean Wifi not working very good
I dont like at all
The smell and derty
After checking into my room and relaxing another guests opens my door and had been checked into the room as well after she found a used condom on the lamp to her room. After giving the room to her because there were no more "clean" rooms available (I stayed with a friend that night) I came back in the morning to speak with a manager who did not even apologize until I was walking out the door. I have stayed in some shady motels but this clearly takes the cake.
Reasnable price Near the Bart
Non smoking room with strong smoke smell Staff forget to change sheets We have to ask for the shampoo twice We have to ask for bread or other staff for the breakfast at 8am No cleaning of the room carpet during 8 days No maps, tourist information..
WiFi, refrigerator and micro wave
Lousy receptionist. Gave me the worse room top of third floor and the only room without a front view. Yet, there other rooms available at check in and after checkout in the morning. Did not allow an early check in when there were clearly rooms available.
paper thin walls. heard crying kid all night long. room/bathroom very old and felt unclean.
The staff was unfriendly. They didn't know what they were doing. The toilet was filled with fecies. The place was dirty. They double charged me for the room. Very very very unprofessional. Please save your money. Do not stay here!
It was cheap--in every way--so I saved money. Nothing else was good.
My primary concern was that at check-in they asked for my photo id, and they made a photocopy of my id. I believe that photocopying of photo IDs and keeping them in a file is illegal, but the staff person insisted that this was their policy and that she would give me the photocopy when I checked out so that I could shred it. When I checked out, there was a different staff person on duty who insisted that the photocopy of my id had laready been shredded, so she said that she could not return it to me. I did not have time to argue with her, so I left. For all I know these people are scamming their customers by stealing IDs and the identities of the customers who stay at this hotel. If any problem ever arises for me with identity theft, I will immediately identify the staff at this hotel as being responsible for the theft. The police should be notified about these people, and they should be put out of business.
location is ok.
poor maintenance. not place to stay with the family. the Frigidaire did operate properly. shower was duty..i paid way to much for this type of accommodations.I should get a partially refund. just for stayed there. my wife did.not even.use the shower. same reason you see hair on the shower walls.
America's Best Value Inn - Downtown Oakland/Lake Merritt, charge me something I didn’t reserved. I reserve only 1 room and they told me I reserve 2 room and charge me for 2 room. I cheek out August 23 and I cheek my account and find out the hotel charge me additional room fee. I call to August 25 around 11.00 am and talk to the customer agent why the hotels charge me something I didn’t reserve .He was very rude and unprofessional and say “ I am going cancel the extra fee now “ he didn’t even give me a chance to finished what I want to explain . I am not going to recommend for any one this hotel. I didn’t like the customer service.
Cheap. 10 min from bart. Very close to the lake.
Strong smell in the room. I once sleep with a t-shirt and the smell from the bed wouldn't go away until laundry cleaned. No internet. No hair conditioner.
The Wifi connection was good, thats it ! Check out and cancellation without problems
Staff, stinky room, mold on shower curtain, mold in storage room, wet carpet, dirty room, the lid of the toilet tank was loose, didnt fit the tank, the sink was not secured to the wall, bugs in the room
Nothing in that place
So dirty and old, everything is broken, bad breakfast, no house keeping clean my room, there was a hokers coming 5 the place look for a men, there was guys selling girls, it is the worst place we ever been it was so bad.
Molds in the bathrooms, clogged toilets and sinks. Housekeepers are lazy. They took the tips but did bot clean our room twice. This place is really terrible.
The room smelled like someone had been smoking there, even though it was a non-smoking room. The smoke may also have come from the outside.
Staff was excellent. Good location.
There was a draft coming from the window or door that made it extremely hard to sleep and made me sick
restroom needs a makeover
Room is in a bad condition including the bathroom. Needs renovation and maintenance. No good value for money.
Close to freeway and Punic transit.
There was an old shampoo bottle from a previous guest so that makes me wonder about their housekeeping. Says free wifi but I couldn't get on with the password they gave me even after calling the front desk mtiple times. Worst "continental breakfast" I've ever had. I was very disappointed in the orange water which I thought would be orange juice and the breakfast variety of either cold cereal or toast.
Shower and Toilette didn't work! After telling the guys at the registration no one did anything about it! This hotel isn't worth it's name!
