Close to a Bart Station. And I got a good, spacious room with everything in it.
Oakland is not the most interesting place in the US, but the hotel is in walking distance (about 2 miles) from Amtrak station Emeryville.
Room was comfortable and clean. Hot shower.
Location is a bit sketchy. We had no trouble walking from the BART (two blocks) but my daughter who lives in Berkeley was nervous about the area. She said there had been a lot street crime around there.
The room was very clean and the bedding and decor looked fresh and new. Close to the BART. Free parking.
Walking through a gated area (although the gates weren't locked) was interesting. We discovered that we were on the safer side of the intersection. Lots of sirens. Not somewhere I would stay for more than a night, as I do have two young children
The staff was helpful and very friendly. The motel is on walking distance to a BART station for access to San Francisco. It was next to a Carl's Jr, so basically that was my breakfast and dinner. Bed was large and comfortable. Good amount of TV channels.
The wifi connection dropped every 15 minutes or so on one router, but the 3rd floor one was stable. Bathroom was awkwardly small. Price is OK compared to others in the bay area, but still relatively high to other places I've been in Europe and Asia.
Staff is great!!!!!
We came here due to a Salsa Congress that was happening downtown at the Marriot. Our friends payed a little over 270 per night there, while us at the Imperial Inn with better service payed less than 70. I was very happy for having stayed here.
Convenient check in & check out
The price and the location
The upkeep and maintenance
I stayed here nov 19-20th room was clean everything looked decent but the heat didn't work. I called the front desk tried to fix the problem but ended having to move me to a different room second room had bed bugs! Woke up in the middle of the night had tons of bites all over my body back arms & legs ended checked out few hours told staff about my bite weren't considered at all won't be going back
A simple motel good for shorter stay, easy access with car from Oakland airport.
Nothing to complain about for this rate (90 dollars).
- Excellent price - Staff is really helpful ( if they say 24 hrs, is true). - Hot water ( that actually works) - Cable TV. - Location: near to parks and groceries stores. I recommend to call them and ask for rates ( can be cheaper than online sites).
- After 10 am cleaning staff starts to be loud, screaming things like ( JUANITA ACUERDATE DE LIMPIAR EL 4B!!). - the area looks pretty ghetto, however is safe ( at least for me).
I stayed here once a week while settling into my new job to avoid a long commute (5 stays). I always felt safe. It was quiet and the other guests seemed like me... middle class folks looking for an affordable place to stay. Even though the grounds are not new, the room was clean and they made an effort to make it nice. I also got the impression that it is a family run place and they took pride in making sure I was comfortable. I greatly appreciate the hospitality and the very affordable rate!
I would be prepared that this location is near Macarthur BART. It is a great perk if you want easy public transportation and I always felt safe but I'm used to the neighborhood. I found myself checking and rechecking my car to make sure that there weren't any valuables showing. Good advice for parking near BART.
The location was great, and the room was nice.
I felt the shower could have been cleaner. The shower curtain made the entire bathroom smell funky.
good price friendly staff close to bart station and restraunts
Comfortable bed Big room Very clean
There was no bag for the ice bucket and they charge for the ice. Only one way to get to the rooms. Not enough towels. Had to go to office to get coffee for the next morning, it was not replenished daily. No safety chain in door.
Price, location, fridge/microwave in room
Sheets had stains on them. WiFi occasionally and temporarily not working.
The bed and pillows were amazing. It was like a 5 star hotel inside. Room was spacious, TV was excellent...very modern and secure. Neighborhood is borderline but hotel was convenient and secure. Staff was super nice. Great breakfast recommendation..the bagel place around the corner. I left something in the room and they were so kind to mail it back to me. I'll stay there again any time!
Bathroom could have been updated compared to the amazing room and soap-stuff was super cheap.But it was certainly adequate and good for the price.
Perfectly clean, comfortable, friendly staff, very inexpensive.
WiFi was useless.
The room was remodeling and largest had microwave coffee maker inside
Nice Motel! Staff was nice and you have got Carls Jr. right next to you. It is not far away from the sightseeing points in SF!
Nothing actually. I'm a Seattle Seahawks fan and they played against the Oakland Raiders the days I was there. Well, 30-24 for us and I don't recommend to walk around with a Seahawks hat then :D
large space room and convenient kitchen facilities
dirty pillows and covers for bed
close to UC Berkeley.
bathroom is not clean.
Reasonable price. Clean and quiet. Good security. Hangers, hair dryer, and ironing board.
The door to the bathroom made it very difficult to get into the bathroom. Don't plan on changing in there.
