People drinking smoking weed and fighting everyday in adjacent rooms not a good choice to save 20$ a night

This motel is very dirty. TV in the room don't work. I had to buy my own towels because theirs was filthy and brown. The sink was cracked and the room was very dusty. The seats were filled with brown almost black stains. Horrible place, you are better off sleeping in your car.

The room was dirty and rundown, smelled of cigarette smoke so bad that my clothes came home smelling of smoke. No amenities available. Expensive for a dive motel. Didn't give me a AAA discount, claimed it was already in price, but the price on internet for the night I was there was $60 cheaper then what I was paying! They wouldn't give me the lower price. Only came to service the room once during a four night stay. Sheets were dirty, written on, lipstick stains, etc. Bathroom was disgusting, needed to wear flipflops in the shower. Totally gross! Would never recommend this place.

Disappointed there was no breakfast as the room was being redecorated. Bedroom was clean, and I hope still being redecorated, needs to be finished. Parking lot not kept clean. However, for one night, price was right and it is convenient to San Francisco ferry, I would return.

We had a non-smoking room which was stinky with deodorizers when we got there but we aired it out. They did everything right with service issues and the pool was clean and ready to swim. I have no complaints.

Good location and not expensive. Pretty average hotel on the whole

I like this hotel it was in the heart of webster st so your near everything. Plus the staff members are all sweet hearts......

Got to room at night, went right to sleep. Got up in morning and saw dirty socks in the bed (no, not mine) and a used condom under the bed (no, not mine). My 5 year old daughter was with me. Complained to the manager and his response was 'sorry' . I wanted another room for the rest of the day. He said no. I said give me my money back, We are going to another hotel. He said 'sorry', 'no refund'. What a terrible room, what a terrible manager. Please take this hotel off your list.

This place is fairly dumpy. There seem to be semi-permanent residents that give it a strange vibe. You know you're in a semi-trashy motel when there's a bottle opener fastened to the wall of the bathroom. We got fresh towels every day, beds were made, and none of our stuff was stolen, so that's nice. But the place smelled. I anticipated this, and had brought a wall-plug air freshener. It was truly needed. You're very close to a lot spots that will help you forget where you're sleeping, like Starbucks, Walgreens, and several fast food joints (if you're into that). Seriously though. This place was pretty awful. Try finding something on the other side of the island if you need to stay in Alameda.

Towels were dirty. Smoking room when I asked for a non-smoking room. Rug was torn and dirty. Looks like someone had been paining a project on the floor. Felt more like Section 8 housing rather than a hotel stay. Bug in refrigerator!!

Pretty good value for the price. Room was clean . Seems like there are people who have long term residency there and I was a little concerned about them as they had people in and out, but they gave me no trouble.

I was expecting one notch above Motel 6. Way better than that. The room was very clean. Soap and shampoo for me (not expected). Coffee in the room. Breakfast was too simple. But Starbucks was across the street.

it was a place to sleep. price was better tthan in san francisco.

This place is one of the worst motels I have ever stayed in. The neighborhood is really bad. Drug deals in the parking lots and prostitutes are common. The bathroom was filthy & only one lamp in the room actually had a bulb that worked. The heater rattled like a battle tank with a bad transmission and the blankets had burn holes in them. Unless you are a drug buyer or looking to solicit a prostitute STAY AWAY FROM THIS DUMP!

Did not stay, as hotel was not near family and had no haddicap bath,

Have stayed here before. Always treated well. Not fancy but a place to sleep and shower. Good internet. Easy to get to and easy to get to where we want to go.

Hotel would of been fine if the amenities were better. Hotel sheets had stains and holes. Towels had them as well. Staff couldof been friendlier as well. Wont stay there again.

We stay there when visiting friends in Alameda. It's always a nice, pleasant stay. It's conveniently located and the staff are reliably friendly.

It's clean(ish) I've stayed at worse places, but overall it's a bit sketchy. A lot of long term residents that give the place a trashy vibe, the rooms are clean but there was a cigarette burn on the blanket and there was a hair on the wall I'm sure wasn't mine.

THIS PLACE IS BY FAR THE WORSE PLACE I HAVE EVER STAYED. THE ROOM WAS VERY DIRTY AND LOOKED LIKE THE HOUSE KEEPERS NEEDED WAY MORE TRAINING. THE BATHROOM WAS VERY DIRTY AND THERE WERE BLOOD ALL OVER THE WALLS AND THE TOILET PAPER AND THE ROOM WAS INFECTED WITH COCKROACHES.
