One of the ladies knocked and wasn't give the chance to answer and she opened the door, it was very awkward,but she did apologize.
Very comfortable, didn't pay for parking.
Our A/C was not working; our bathroom did not have shelves; Towels were to be had only if you requested the staff for them several times
Towels were stained
Room was comfy
The staff were friendly and efficient, and I was allowed to check out late. The room was spacious, very comfortably furnished and the fridge and microwave worked well. It was very good value for the area.
My girlfriend was spoken to rudely by on of the clerks when we set the reservation. Also, a smoking room with no ash trays; even on subsequent days, the maid never got the hint to bring us one.
convenient location for our trip, place was clean, and reasonably quiet.
The room was very dirty
As a single parent traveler with a teen its important to get good value for the price - the Imperial Inn is far enough from Berkeley & San Francisco that they can offer good prices and close enough to take a quick and easy BART two station ride (get on at MacArthur - get off at Downtown Berkeley). You can also take the BART to San Francisco, but driving is fun to go over the Bay Bridge (it's only $4 after 7p - and you only pay going in, not driving back out). The rooms have been upgraded with nice furniture and a very comfy King bed - there's a small microwave and a cute little fridge as well. Wifi worked fine - nice flat screen TV on the wall, room darkening curtains - its a good value. I will admit that the area isn't upscale, but we never ran into any issues.
Location and the staff was very nice
Of course, we stayed here because of the prices in San Fran were too high for us. The location felt a bit dodgy so we didn't stay out after dark. But that was our decision. Shops and food outlets were quite a way away.
Very close to the bart. Large room, good coffee :) Good security, good wifi, frendly and helpful staff. She helped us out a couple times with directions to stuff etc.
Would rather stay at super 8
The family that owns the business was very nice. They let me check in early and also check out 1 hour late. They also held my luggage for me in office until my flight. Suzanne was exceptionally nice
I disliked the toilet to tub ratio...it was entirely too close. My non smoking room also smelt like cigars.There was no soap provided and tv picture was poor. The ice bucket was outside the room and had been used for cigar buts and the heater was damaged but worked.
I enjoyed the comfort of the bed it was clean. The microwave,refrigerator and coffee maker all were great.
Neighborhood could have been better.
Friendly staff. Clean room. Comfortable beds.
Located in a somewhat seedy neighborhood. Couldn't connect to WiFi half the time
Big clean comfortable room, nice price for the area, friendly and helpful staff, very close to bart station, comfy bed
I wish their vending machine had water bottles
Lady at the front desk was really nice and inviting. Inexpensive and adorable little hotel!
My only downside was the cleaning staff, the day we requested maid service they did not leave new towels or clean ashtrays. But they did bring towels by several hours after we got back and had gotten new ones from desk. All in all, not a big deal at all...
The desk staff accommodated my request for an early check-in. It was much appreciated, they got a room ready 2 hours early...very nice!
The new young is a pain... He tries to overdue things even though I'm a repeating customer
The regular staff always make my stay great...
Ours sheets on both beds were flitty. We had itching and swelling on our feet from the flitty shower that filled up with water when using. As I ran back up to grab my cell phone charger after checkout, room service made up the bed for next guest without changing sheets we just laid on.
janitorial staff, cleaning staff and Mangers just open the door as and when they want to talk to, or clean. Very unprofessional .. Neighborhood is a bit noisy
the room, close to a BART
Handily located to a BART station
Would try again
Our shower broke. We rented 3 rooms. Each with 2 queen beds. Each room was a different size, with random chairs everywhere in our rooms. Also, very poor lighting for a bride trying to put make-up on for her big day.
The room was clean
Asked for a smoking room but didn't get one.
Relatively quiet even though near a busy street.
Not a great neighborhood
Large room with good facilities and helpful staff. Close to BART station
The location is the best with regards to different locations: Downtown Oakland,Chinatown and UC Berkeley and Lake Merritt. Excellent!
