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
paper thin walls. heard crying kid all night long. room/bathroom very old and felt unclean.
location is ok.

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!
Location - the Lake and BART are convenient. Basic, but okay and clean.
Noisy - my room had a (lockable) joining door with the next room. The people next door might as well have been in my room.
I enjoyed the location , close to Downtown Oakland, and Lake Merritt.
The bathrooms leave something to be desired. They seem old, need to be remodeled, modernized.
Location is nice, out the front, Lake Merritt. Late night don't wonder much more than two blocks the opposite way.
The Wi-Fi is free and rarely works. Always dropping/ cutting off and the front office staff, scratch that, can only speak of the General Manager, knows nothing about the service provided or even how to perform a simple reset. He looked at his cell phone and informed me his WiFi was on! Yikes!!!
I stayed for a week, maid came twice to clean. My shower was clogged and never cleaned with hair and dirt. Restroom floor was never cleaned with hair all over.
Rooms were dirty and old. Bad area and noisy.
Low cost for the Bay area, friendly check in staff, handy to Lake Merritt but few shops and restaurants close by. Bart stop about 10 minutes walk away.
Place is run down with a broken elevator and emptied pool. Rooms are basic and quite tired. No phone and hotel Wi-Fi signal not strong enough to connect. Some check-in hiccups.
Customer Service Sucks. The Last time I stayed their I had gone in the morning to verify my stay and asked for a ground floor room because I have issue's with stairs they did not do that. I was so tired when I arrived I had to take the 3rd floor room. The Clerk didn't even check to see if someone might be checking out the next day so I could move into their room. No Customer Service at all. No phone in my room Ihe windown could not be opened. If I stay there again it will only be for location purposes. Also the first time I stayed there I noticed when I went out the maids didn't vaccum.
There is a fridge and microwave.
The cleaning crew only comes at the end of your stay, so we had to request fresh towels and came back to unmade beds. There are no outlets, only power strips. There isn't an iron or hair dryer to borrow so you have to bring your own.
