Nice Bay Area pied-a-terre . . .

This is a modern, well-maintained hotel right next to the freeway and San Francisco Bay. If you have a room on the bay/freeway side, you will have an interesting view which includes the Golden Gate bridge in the distance, and minimal traffic noise. The land side is basically a large modern cookie-cutter mall/retail district - everything you could need is within easy reach, but the immediate area lacks character. The hotel is very clean, comfortable and well-organized, and the staff are helpful. There's a small gym and a pool with jacuzzi, and a car rental desk in the lobby. Two things I didn't like: 1) There's a strange smell of disinfectant in the lobby at all times. We finally worked out that it was the chlorine from the pool. 2) The hotel was very quiet during our stay, but I get the feeling (judging from the few sounds I heard) that noise from plumbing and other guests could travel very easily through the (apparently) thin walls.

Check out breakfast options in the mall opposite rather than the rather colorless, institutional hotel breakfast.

Close to Starbucks, Shopping and Movies

This hotel is conveniently located near shopping, movies and Starbucks. Our room had an exceptional view of the bay and San Francisco. It was a bargain compared to staying in San Francisco. The room was small, however, and staff had to be asked to make up the pullout and bring towels to accommodate my son.

Comfortable Accommodations

Enjoyed our stay while helping our daughter move out of the dorms at Cal Berkeley. Was an easy drive to the Berkeley campus and the surrounding shopping area was wonderful! The room was comfortable, clean and roomy. We plan to stay here again when the time arises.

Great Location in Oakland

I was in Berkeley for a meeting and found the location to be perfect for a short drive to the meeting hotel at the marina. The location just off the east end of the Bay Bridge was perfect for easy access into San Francisco, visit to Napa Valley and not that far to return to the SF Airport. Lots of shopping within walking distance of the hotel and the trails along the bay are also nearby.

Ok, hotel

I was attending an event and the coordinator suggested this hotel for the entire group. After my arrival, I was immediately disappointed. The sheets and towels were paper thin, furniture was old and the room didnt contain a fridge or microwave. Also, better media entertainment such as movies or games for purchase would be nice. On the upside, the hotel is in a area with plenty of amenities.

Solid for 3-star hotel

Solid room for a 3-star hotel, but overpriced considering the location. Park was also very limited and the lot ran out of room

Better Than Average

Good experience. Friendly staff. Great location. 3.5 Star. The room I stayed, why was the coffee pot set inside the bathroom? Not too apetizing.
