Nicht zu empfehlen!!!

Posted Aug 16, 2015
Sind mit der Bahn angereist als wir aussteigen wollten wurde uns geraten sofort in ein Taxi zu steigen und ins Motel zu fahren, diese Worte kamen von der Schaffnerin in der Bahn. Beim Aussteigen würden wir außerdem von Jugendlichen gewarnt das es in Richmond nicht so toll ist.

It is supposed to be a non-smoking room, but it smells very bad, the wall paint is coming off. The room is very small, bathroom is not clean

Just a cheap place to crash for the night

Posted Aug 9, 2015
The hotel was old, had mold, and was next to a very busy freeway so could hear traffic noise all night (I'm a light sleeper) so if you're a light sleeper, I would not recommend this place. The walls were pretty thin so we could hear the occupants in the next door.

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.
