    Didn't really visit it but we were in Oakland only for the night to catch an early morning flight and the hotel, which provided an early morning shuttle to airport, was near some body of water. But have visited the lake in the past and this is one of Oakland's better attractions. Frankly, the hotel was HORRID! Uncomfortable beds, clientele really sketchy.

    As in Oakland native I come here a lot when I need peace to relax. I like being around the lake Merritt area and I think it's a good idea to get a room in this area time to time it's very quiet here. The staff is very nice. I love getting a good night's sleep here.

    While seemingly non-descript and in the middle of nowhere, it was a very short (0.1 mi) walk from the Lake Merritt BART station. Lake Merritt was very close and very scenic and pleasant. It was well run and maintained, and the owners were very helpful. Excellent location if driving, ample parking.

    The only good parts are it's close to the BART Metro subway station "Lake Merritt" and you can transfer from OAKLAND int'l airport to here by only spending around 7.5USD and also there are many charging outlets available for use in the motel, and it costs less than 100 USD a night with taxes included!
