very great customer service and friendly!!!!
That my heater and two lights did not work!!! But with no problem they moved me to one thats was working as well as all the light!!!
Was told they do not accept cash. It was 12:am I was very tried. Wanted to go to sleep.
Nice big clean room! Continental breakfast adds value to my money! Staff is great. Security is on mark.
Fix the pool.
Exterior of building made property appear to be equally appealing inside.Very disappointed.
Wasn't the best value for price by far.
John Sang checked me in and he was exttemely friendly and did all he could to give me a room that fit what I wanted. It made me take notice as most places in oakland don't seem to care.
Just being able to use credit card.
The front desk guy was very pleasant
I don't care how comfortable a need is. No one wants to wake up to a Roach in their cup and a sink that doesn't drain properly. I was disgusted and wanted a refund.
Bad is good but not really clean
Why couldn't check in early that was really bad for take long trip travelers. I was with my two friends get there early 30 mins, the employee doesn't give us check in early And doesn't want to do business , just talk with other coworker in the back office. Even in 3 pm, we should ready to check in, but he still talking talking and doesn't care about we were wait long time and tired in there. But the night sheet the lady who is nice and help . Thanks her:)
Total rehab interior required.
In that freezing night in this hotel with no heater working.
I just told you.
the location was easy to find parking was good room was just like the photo shown in online add ground floor access clerk was very helpfull walked with me to help me open the door! I liked that very much,free breakfast was provided.late check in ok.
heater wasn't working properly 10 am construction workers with power saws started working right outside window!.
there was not a towels in the room the TV did not get the channels afterwards they told me they would have it fixed the first room they sent me to stink like someone was smoking in the room and I had a non smoking room
King beds all on the 3rd floor!
The fact that the Manager easily gave me a refund for the previous nights stay.
There was a lot of traffic in and out of the property. Some of the guests were obnoxious and unruly. The toilet overflowed, bathroom didn't have a curtain, making it visible for an outsider to see in, shower drain had food in it, towels were too small, telephone in the room didn't work. It was impossible to get any sleep.
no hair dryer
Convenient to everything we wanted to do in the area. Good value for our money.
Only had 1 available outlet. What looks like mold on the shower curtain. Can hear and smell the smoke of the neighbors.
Location is good next to a Lake
Rooms smelled like mildew from rain or other water leaks discolored ceiling from roof leaking .
The Wi-Fi was horrible, if you could even connect.
Continental breakfast. Proximity to public transportation. Proximity to Lake Merritt.
Towel rack was ready to fall. Staff not always available. Should add fresh fruit to breakfast: e.g., bananas, oranges, apples
Guy at front desk was super friendly and accommodating great personality.
Was awakened by bed bugs!! Contacted BV main office, got a couple e-mails and a couple phone calls back, but no info as to what happened as i was told room was going to be put out of service and sprayed the next day. Asked to see if that was done, over a month and still no word. Very disappointed and will NOT stay at their chain, very unprofessional as a company.
That it is close to the lake
Women prostitutioning out of the motel...security should of put them out. Arguing late at nite and slamming doors. Also the rug was not vacuumed correctly items in the corners.
The friendly lady at the desk the night we checked in.
People hanging around, poop on the bathroom curtain, swisher wrapper on the bed, Hair in the sink.. Yikes.
Everything was great
