Hotel is close I the downtown city center.

It was fine. Parking is hard in the lot they provide. Spots are very narrow, especially for bigger vehicles.

Closet of a room.

Posted Aug 2, 2014
I stayed in a room with two twin beds. The room was substantially smaller than other rooms with queens or kings. Additionally, the window was tiny and designed to look directly into the room of another room. If I put my hand out the window, I could touch the other hotel room's window. If you like a cave the size of a closet, with no natural sunlight, this is your place.

Tiny tiny room, no closet to hang clothes, no chair to sit on, no phone in the room. The room, however, was clean so that's a plus.

reasonably clean, closet-sized room with a view of a wall five feet away, no daylight. hairdryer missing - had to wait for new one - late for work. dialing '0' does NOT reach front desk per instructions, had to call from mobile phone. no cream for coffee. staff was respectful, but not the slightest bit solicitous. free "high-speed" Internet was less than 1mbs (download speed). very limited TV channel lineup. "hotel restaurant" was a dive with no American food.

Center of Downtown

Posted Jul 9, 2014
Hotel staff great. Adjacent and connected restaurant Indian, so if you like Indian food it's right there. Secure parking costs 15.00 a night and is recommended rather than parking on street since you would have to move your vehicle by 8 am and could possibly be broken into. Two twin bed rooms very small, but clean and well-kept. If you plan on being out and about and just using the room for showering and sleeping instead of relaxing in hotel room, the hotel is a good choice.

Convenient hotel downtown for simple biz travel

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Clean, simple
Location: Golden Lotus vegan/vegetarian restaurant is one block away and outstanding
Room was dormitory-small; not a problem for simple use (sleeping, desk work, showering/dressing). Very basic but very clean. Did not have any trouble with facilities other than drainage of tub and sink (very slow). Did not personally enjoy the self-closing bathroom door, but understand the intent. Hotel staff courteously replaced my makeshift door-opener with a proper wooden wedge after first cleaning visit. No food options of course; otherwise seemed quite clean and well-maintained for a old building/hotel.

Better than some other hotels in Oakland

Posted Jun 26, 2014
Location: Decent bar on corner of next block
Good enough for what we wanted, have stayed in two other places in Oakland as this was a lot better.

Requesting a refund due to numerous issues. This hotel did not live up to the standards of a Clarion property. It could be a nice place if additional training was conducted.

micro room

Posted Jun 18, 2014
Super small bedroom- the room was a tad larger than the bed......no room for even a small desk....large bathroom with a lot of empty space in it (you could have put a cot in it). odd. All clean, but awkward and small.

Interesting stay

Posted May 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
The room and bathroom were clean. But do not stay in a room that is the first room of the floor. You will be right next to the elevator. Also do not get a room with a window over looking 13th St. You will be awakened many times by police/EMT vehicles. Be prepared to pay $15 for parking unless you can find a spot on the street. The hotel was good, just be prepared for the area.
