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

Close to work and cheap
After booking the horrible hotel in Oakland ca this hotel was like an angel the sky. Supper convinience and great price also the staff was very helpful and cordial. Thank you
They were renovation so it was a little noise.
There wasnt enough breakfast for the guest
Not a clean room. Window broken.
1. Suspicious looking character hanging outside of front office holding a plastic bag. 2. Got into room saw very large Roach crawling around the TV. 3. Cold water faucet in the shower was very loose very hard to control. 4. Duck tape wrapped around sink. 5. refrigerator didn't have shelves and was set at 5 which froze my milk I bought. 6. Last day there the breakfast room was closed served coffee and toast in tiny front office.
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.
