Had one room just updated. Affordable
Next to train which was loud. Construction still going on. Only one towel available. No hangers in the closet. Police activity one evening
no towls, creepy security, three cars got broken into that were parked in there garage, the pool was disgusting trash and seagulls in it, very unsanitary
I loved the area we were in a very fun part of Oakland awesome entertainment and food all within 10 blocks. The bowling alley rite next door was awesome ... I would recommend this spot if ur ok with a sub par room in a great area. Personally I would prefer that over a great room in a bad area
No fridge no microwave ... Shower is pretty pathetic. If u don't want to hear a really loud train go by every hour then u probly don't wanna stay here . having said that I would still stay here again gladly
staff was courteous
did not like the hotel room I tried two different rooms neither was clean needs to be remodeled and was smelly even in hallway left and went to another hotel cheaper and better
Manager was notified by the staff member working about the facility's heaters weren't working and we weren't notified prior to booking the room. The Staff member also informed the assinstant manager that my credit card still wasn't billed so if we could cancel our reservation without being charged due to the fact their heaters were not working and didn't want to risk our children's health yet the manager said they had to charge for the room. We notified booking.com about the situation and I'm currently still trying to resolve this issue and get reimbursemed for staying at an alternate hotel.
Old hotel, smell bad, right beside the train rail, too nosity, there was not heat in December, no trash can in room, no hair dryer, no soap or shampoo.
No heat. Chincy towels!
This hotel was a dump....No heat and I did not feel safe at all, the worse I've stayed in. My room was on the 3rd floor, to much foot traffic from unscrupulous charactors hanging out and making drug deals in the hallways with little to no hotel staff to monitor. I never felt safe and acutally left this Hotel. NOT SAFE....
The staff was friendly and there was safe parking.
Bed was uncomfortable. Place was falling apart. Found a bug in my pillow. Didn't sleep well at all. TV had 7 channels. Worst night sleep I've had in a log time.
The front desk lady's are great
The friendliness and ease of getting a room. The girls at the desk were very nice and helpful.
The cold rooms. The 1st room we were in, one of the beds didn't have a blanket. The thermostat didn't work. Plus, there were bred bugs in my daughter's bed. We video taped those nasty things. They moved us to another room, but all of our items are already infested now, to include our vehicle.
The only thing that was good was the location with jack London square being right across the street
Oh wow ! I could be on here for every describing what I didn't like. First off the heat was not working in the hotel as it was cold and raining two days straight. Room had roaches crawling on the wall. Parking was small and limited because out side people was parking in the hotel parking lot. No face towels was giving as well as trash can. Train runs right in front of hotel every hr. Drug addicts and prostitutes hanging out around and in hotel building. This would be a good hotel because of location. They just need to clean this place up
The lobby was nice, and the front desk agent was very helpful and understanding..
Very outdated. You can see every stain in the carpet. No phone or clock radio in room. The bathroom had bugs and smelled of urine/mold. The carpet in front of the bathroom was soaking wet. We laid down 3 towels and they were still drenched. We checked out in less than an hour. Not a place for a parent and young child. I am waiting for my refund.
Many aspects: dirty linen, disgusting bathroom, trains continually causing disrupted sleep, no wifi … and over priced.
It was a cheap price.
Incredibly dirty and horrible, unfriendly staff.
it's located in front of jack london square
not dirty, mega filthy. no towels but roaches, even bed bugs! no cleaning, no wifi... anything else?
Location is perfect, near Jack London Station. The price is good.
The room is too dim and three of those four lamps are broken. An there is NO blanket in bed. NO wifi.
View of the empty pool
Nice Restaurants across the street.
1) The Inn is run down and dirty. 2) Wi-Fi was out of order with no expectation of being repaired soon. 3) The room lacked: A/C; sufficient working lights; needed to be cleaned; the closet had no pole to hang clothing on and no hangers; the carpet must be 40 years old; Trains frequently pass the hotel ensuring you remain awake at night; the staff were friendly but next to useless; no wastebasket in the room; No TV remote control. 4) I would discourage anyone from staying there unless they were desperate.
The bed The proximity to the ferry to San Francisco
Permanent noise from trains Noise from other rooms (too thin walls, bad insulation) Lack of most basic equipment : no towels, no wi-fi, no fridge, no hairdryer, no coffee maker... The filth, in the lobby, the elevator ... in the shower
couldn't think of one positive thing
there were no towels, had to dry off with bed sheet, AC did not work, Windows did not open, no remote for TV, no coffee maker, no iron, WiFi did not work. deadbolt did not work. Noisy all night long, could hear other rooms, hourly train noise. no nightly housekeeping. People bringing in prostitutes. Thought I was in a bad movie
Location: Jack London Square was across the street
Dirty rugs, windows that did not open, A/C that did not cool the room on a hot day, no cleaning service, no wastebaskets in room. Truly, it seemed like the hotel had gone bankrupt and we were the poor unfortunates left.
We changed rooms twice, sheets and beds were filthy, air conditioning system did not work, incredibly loud AMTRAK noise the entire night, W-Lan was unavailable the whole time - an awful experience. Personnel embarrassed, did their best to help.
Junk in the parking lot, smokers ready to greet me, lobby smelled like smoke..not for first time visitors not the best first impression of oakland. We looked at the room and left to stay in Berkeley instead. It is right next to the train tracks. This place should be torn down or completely renovated.
