Sad to say - you get what u pay for. Very small. Noisy. Felt unsafe. Had a funny smell. And free internet? What free? Timed out so many times the “free” six hours had elapsed. Noisy air conditioning and small screen TV. Too close to the Oakland Coliseum for comfort because the traffic was horrendous. Not much good news here.
The hotel area looks very unsafe. the staff wasn't so friendly (couldn't even recommend a place to eat). nothing to eat around - have to drive to Almeda or San Fransisco. and the room itself was not clean, the beth was dirty and old. and the bed had stains on it. (looked like lipstick) This is a very cheap place, and it looks like it too, The breakfast "room" is tiny and the food is poor.
I paid $174 for one night at this hotel that is not in a good area and when I arrived the building is very beaten down, the lobby smells terribly and us very dirty. I asked for a non smoking room. My room said it was non smoking but it smelled so bad, I'm not sure if it was smoke or because it is so dirty. I had someone try to get into my room, I also had neighbors who played extremely loud music all through the night, screamed, and hung out right out side my door. I called the front office and nothing happened. I didn't sleep all!
This Rodeway Inn is in an industrial area north of the stadium, and walking to the Raider game that evening felt a bit scary. Nothing happened, but I was very cautious and returned to my room mid way through the game before it got too dark. Fortunately, there were patrol cars that went by me several times on the street as I was walking, so I felt a bit safer. Next time I might use Uber to get to the game unless it is in the morning or afternoon. The motel was easy to find off the freeway about a mile and a quarter north of the O.Co. coliseum, and my room was clean and roomy. I was hoping to be on the second floor, but they could not accommodate me as first floor rooms were all that were left. The woman that checked me in was very nice, and I felt very safe in my room and on the premises as the exterior lighting is very good. I will likely stay again next time I go to an event at the Coliseum.
This place was well kept on the outside! It wasn't until we were up late and we saw roaches crawling around and we had to throw away our food. Yuk! the next morning we were asked if we wanted to switch rooms (like that was going to stop roaches from crawling right?) Well, we moved anyway and yup.....again at night...the roaches were out. Never again will we stay at this place. We were stuck because we were there on business and we got back to our room late night. And the breakfast they offer? Joke. Do not stay here!
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.
