Convenient downtown location

Posted Aug 14, 2017
Pros: Its location and where I needed to go.
Cons: Delivering on what they are offering; provide the stuff they offer on the reservation.
Location: Proximity to Lake Merritt was a big positive.
Disappointing. Quite loud into late night hours; there is plenty of people and partying happening in the area overnight. Although the reservation offered a queen bed, it was a double bed, and after numerous attempts I gave up asking; but they made it as far as saying "let me go up with you with a measuring tape to show you it is a queen bed", which I found plain disrespectful; only one front desk clerk acknowledged an issue with the bed size, but promptly changed the story.

Thank you for completing the survey. It's been three years since we purchased the queen beds, in the last week you and another person mentioned it. I was really perplexed and called the manufacturer and they assured me it is queen bed and they told me to measure it from the middle of the bed and it was 60ins. You were in 302 and I went and measured it id 59 1/2 ins. The vendor said sometimes it is one inch short or a little more. It was a surprise for all of us, I hope you understand that we are not trying to pass something which is not. I will call again the vendor and send a letter confirming.

Convenient hotel in a great location

Posted Jul 14, 2017
The staff were very friendly and accommodating. They were able to grant me an early checkin when the office I was visiting was closed for repairs. The location is super-convenient, with BART and all the Broadway transit lines less than 2 blocks away. There are lots of great restaurants to explore nearby, though it's a slightly questionable area to wander around at night. The room itself was clean and smelled fresh. It was on the small side and needed minor cosmetic repairs, but overall it was quite comfortable and perfectly adequate for my business trip.

Hotel peu recommandable

Posted Jul 4, 2017
Hotel situé dans un cartier peu recommandable. Des voitures ont eu les vitres brisées. La propreté laissé a désiré. Chambre très petite et petit déjeuner très ordinaire

Close to City Center

Posted Jun 29, 2017
Pros: Staff, Location
Friendly staff. Very close to City Center and 12th St Bart Station. Older hotel configuration with smaller rooms, but clean and comfortable.

Better than expected.

Way better than some of the online reviews. It's not a luxury hotel and the neighborhood is a somewhat marginal... but it's downtown and our room was a pleasant surprise. Neat, clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Conveniently in downtown

Posted May 31, 2017 on Orbitz
Pros: complimentary breakfast in the morning. Good selection of food choices.
The place was nice, it is a bit small but that was my doing as I was looking for a place to stay at the last minute during the long weekend.

Pleasantly Surprised

Older building in downtown Oakland adjacent to the Oakland Tribune building. We were pleasantly surprised. The interior was well maintained and clean. Our room was not large but quite comfortable, clean and quiet. I would recommend it. Parking was extra and right next door.

Well located

If you want a place less than $200 close to the city center and BART, this is one of the only good choices.

The room was very clean and the bed and pillows were comfortable. The bathroomwas recently remodeled and very nice. We felt we received a good value for what we spent. We didn't choose the hotel because of the location which isn't that appealing, but because it was within 10 minutes of the party we were visiting. We would stay there again, but we didn't spend any time there except to sleep and get ready.
