Convenient for BART access!

Posted Jul 20, 2015
Pros: Closeness to the BART station
Aside from the closeness to the BART station (30 min. walk according to front desk staff, or one exit away driving) - there is not a whole lot more that is 'good'. Upon arrival we found the parking lot full of old furniture, mattresses etc.which made us wonder if the 'hotel' was even open! It was. Room on second level offered two beds as booked, a wobbly fridge, a coffee maker, a shower with 'either' cold or hot water (no mix available!) and a door frame through which daylight was visible. No food service of any kind close by, except back at the BART station (El Cerrito North).

Surprisingly nice stay!

Posted Jul 12, 2015
Pros: The mattress and pillows were super comfortable! We also liked the cleanliness of the room. The window was very quaint.
Cons: The exterior could be cleaned up and manicured. It was not very eye appealing.
Location: In driving the area, San Pablo took us to Berkeley and downtown Oakland. We had a great time!
The outside appearance of this motel was not very appealing at all. We were kind of scared to stay, however when speaking to the manager, he assured us that we were in a good area. But, as we moved in to our room, we were happily surprised! The room was clean, the bed were so comfortable, and it smelled very nice. We slept very good on the mattresses; the bathroom was clean and updated. We were very happy with our room. We plan to use this motel again when we are back in the area. As the renovations are completed, we're hoping that the outer appearance catches up to the inside. Thanks!

Staff were very nice but hotel is in a very ghetto area. Other people at hotel were very loud outside couldn't go to sleep until 3am when I called the front desk to ask them if they could talk to them and they did. Room was small found trash under bed. Overall not the best hotel but very good staff thank you for all your help.

Run down but convenient location

Posted May 30, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: The room is dark and feels dingy.
Location: Location is in a marginal part of town. There's big signs in the parking area about how the hotel is not responsible for any thefts.
The hotel is close to the freeway so there's easy access to Berkeley (which is 10 minutes south). The area of town is marginal, and the motel is very dated. But the bed was comfortable. The sink is outside the toilet/shower room, a short distance away, and is very small. I won't go back, even though the price is one of the best in the Berkeley area.

Crowded and uncomfortable.

Posted May 12, 2015
Pros: Convenient location
Cons: Add luggage racks, move out some of the furniture: it took up too much space. Paint the bathroom.
It was too close to the traffic, and we had to open the window to air out the smell of smoke--even though it was a NON smoking room--no luggage racks, sink right as you walk in the door, no counter space for persona items next to sink, paint peeling from doors and walls, dingy stairs, and crowded floor space. Beds were comfortable and clean. TV worked fine.

It is always not what you see in the website. It was ok but they could do better if the owner were not cheap :(

Comfy bed

The bed was comfortable but there is no deep soaking tub at all as mentioned in the description. It was ok just to catch a few z's.
