I can't complain, Very reasonable rates, Clean room, Close to Hwy. Couple times, I have stayed at this hotel in past, this was my third times, so I must have found something good for me to return, obviously I will recommend this hotel to anyone.One thing I must say, breakfast was so so. Thank you

I was staying there with my family and friends. So at around 7.30 am there was a knock at the door saying room service. I applied the security lock and open the door slightly. Two guys from outside pushed very hard to open the door and started hitting me with an iron hammer on my head. My friend came and saved me. Before they left they hit my friend as well. I had to take 21 stitches in my head. Hotel authority failed to provide any sort of security. It was their responsibility to provide security to the guests. How can robbers come directly your room!!! My head injury was so severe that i was mentally and physically sick for about two months.But no one from hotel management came forward to help us neither they took any action to find the criminal. Also now they are reluctant to provide their insurance information as well. Please stay away from this hotel.

I agree with Robert R's review from April 2016. Room was clean even though worn, bed very comfortable, & was very quiet...slept great. The 2 negatives: water drizzled out of sink faucet and never did get hot; the breakfast was short on choices...packets of instant oatmeal (didn't see any milk), loaf of white bread, pre-packaged pastries & 2 juices. But, considering what we paid for one night ($112 with tax), guess you can't expect much more.

I was attending an Oakland Raiders Football game, and thought I would give this place a try. I had stayed at a number of places over on Hegenberger on the other side, and thought I would give this side a try. Initially, I was concerned because of the industrial neighborhood, but was pleasantly surprised once I pulled into the gate. Within the gated property, it feels like a really quaint little village, with little notice of the industrial nature of the neighborhood. Lots of parking, in a clean enclosed parking area surrounded by the hotel. The rooms are basic and clean, and turned out to be a great value. The hotel backs up to the 880, so the constant drone of the freeway is always present, but it caused us no concern at all. If you are sensitive to sound, take note of this. Access to the Coliseum is even better than the Hegenberger side, with Coliseum Way ending at the gates to the stadium. This will be my new go to place for any events I attend at the Coliseum.

This is not the place where you will be sipping drinks with cute little paper umbrellas while watching the golden sun set to seaward beyond the palm tree. These days it is hard to find a decent place in this area for much less than twice this cost. It is simply a place to stay. It is in a light industrial area, right alongside I-880. I stayed here one night, then unexpectedly had to stay in the area the next night, so I have had two different rooms--one nearest the freeway, the other on the far side of the motel from the freeway, both on the ground floor. The soundproofing is good--with the door closed one can hardly hear the traffic; it might be very slightly more perceptible in the room next to the freeway. I have paid twice as much for a noisier room farther from the freeway. The rooms are modern and clean, the beds comfortable. Microwave and refrigerator included, also iron, ironing board and hair dryer. The water is plenty hot without being dangerous. The bath tub is bigger than some. At first I had some problems with the Wi-Fi dropping out, but then it improved and has since been perfectly fine. Maybe someone was downloading a movie or some such. The breakfast bar in the morning is very basic, but all right. There are no grocery stores or pharmacies nearby. Leaving going north in the morning (Coliseum Way leads directly to I-880 North), I happened upon a gas station with low prices for the area, a convenience store, and a "Mexican" take away food store. Lots of working stiffs around, no tourists in evidence. From downtown Oakland one can get here by taking the tube to Alameda, driving through town to West Ave. and following it east across the bridge to Coliseum Way and turning right. I did that both days because the traffic was so congested on I-880 (it was evening rush hour). Just as you come out of the tube into Alameda there are some fast-food places and a Safeway store. I expect I will return in the future, as business brings me here from time to time.

Very clean motel, recently refurbished. Not a prime location unless you are going to the sports stadium or arena. Not any eating places very close. I would stay again if traveling through, easy on off the freeway.

I arrived well after dark. The hotel is not on a main road, nor at an intersection of the interstate. Those not familiar with the area will most probably have - at the least - a "heightened send of awareness" upon arrival. But the welcome from the clerk will quickly put you at ease. He was courteous, friendly and eager to be helpful. After finding my room, I again wondered if I had chosen poorly. The room was dark, with only a single bare bulb for illumination (at first) and marked by the faint odor of an aged building. The dresser and tables were old. Somewhere between "retro" and "just old". But after a little closer examination, it was obvious that all of the important things were in good working order, and up to date. The paint on the walls was fairly fresh, the bathroom fixtures seemed to be new, the television was a nice flat screen and the wifi worked perfectly. Breakfast was typical for this kind of place. Cereal, breads, fruit. Yes, this is an older facility, but they have done their best to maintain it well. There are even a few features that will catch your eye, like the somewhat ornate archway between the main room and the sink area. While it is not a gleaming, new 5-star facility, it is a fine place to spend the night for a very reasonable price.

Like at the Rodeway Inn Civic Center in San Francisco, I was overall satisfied with the bed and the Internet connection. Besides coffee and Danish pastries, the "breakfast" also included a fresh fruit. Mainly there were no kitchen odors to bear! Besides, it was cheaper (both at a senior rate)! Actually, I was supposedly booked for an additional night through Travelocity/Expedia, but that reservation turned to be non-effective (the hotel was full); after a full hour of telephone negociation, Expedia rebooked me to Motel 6 Oakland Airport: a terrible place... The reason for my trip was visiting the San Francisco area and friends in the area.

loacted not too far from the Bay bridge, the hotel was nice, room was clean. the hotel is near highway so it might be a bit noisy but we couldnt notice it when we were inside the room. staff was nice also.

I had a very bad experience while stayed at this hotel with my babies for two nights . I requested over phone and by writing while booking that I want a lower floor room as they don't have elevator. They assured me. But when I appeared there they gave me a room at second floor. The lady at front desk (most probably her name was Nayana Patel) very roughly told me that I have to stay at upper floor without showing me any reason. I never faced this rough attitude while I paid 300 dollars. With two babies and lots of luggages I got forced to take the stairs. I faced a lot of pain due to this second floor room she assigned to me. Secondly the microwave in the room never worked. Thirdly I asked some coffee, tea which I wanted to make in coffee maker in room. They told they have shortage. And finally they are not at all bothered to your convenience. No smile or any welcoming attitude... Please don't waste your money here to get an unwanted bad experience.
