Room was in bad condition and needed multiple repairs as well as better cleaning.
Terrible wi-fi: you will wait forever before giving up. Breakfast starts at 7 am, consists of cereal, bread and toaster. Garbage was piling up in large transparent bags on the filthy steps. In three days, no one took it away. This is a $50-ish motel, not a $100-plus hotel.
Location was OK. The room itself was clean even if the rest of the place was a wreck.
The current Manager's approach to customer service. Was unable to check in two nights in a row due to their card scanner wouldnt read my totally valid albeit temporary card (recent card lost and was using temp card until new card was received). I had to find other accommodations even though im a Value Club Member who stayed there 4x's that month already. Some Value. I can take the $500 + to anither place that had their priorities in the right place.
The Front Desk Crew!
even near office, wifi rarely up; however many times I've asked, and they've said they'd send someone, the freezer still has giant ice block growing out of it; NO PBS on TV.
location is really great; staff are pleasant
The place was dirty limited resources and to pricy for what you're getting
I enjoyed the Tv and the staff
Bed bugs and the people next to us were fighting. The guy was beating up the lady for a long time before someone came to help her. The staff when I was leaving was kindve rude
I loved looking at Lake Merritt. The staff member when I checked in was wonderful
Bed was rather uncomfortable. Facilities need upgrading. Wifi was hit or miss.
The daytime manager told me the owner said he recognized me as being someone who isn't welch to stay there.
The location is great
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!!!
very great customer service and friendly!!!!
Was told they do not accept cash. It was 12:am I was very tried. Wanted to go to sleep.
Fix the pool.
Nice big clean room! Continental breakfast adds value to my money! Staff is great. Security is on mark.
Wasn't the best value for price by far.
Exterior of building made property appear to be equally appealing inside.Very disappointed.
Just being able to use credit card.
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.
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.
The front desk guy was very pleasant
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:)
Bad is good but not really clean
Total rehab interior required.
I just told you.
In that freezing night in this hotel with no heater working.
heater wasn't working properly 10 am construction workers with power saws started working right outside window!.
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.
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!
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.
The fact that the Manager easily gave me a refund for the previous nights stay.
no hair dryer
