Solid value 3-star hotel.
Very satisfied so far. The young woman at the front desk was was welcoming and professional. The room is clean, spacious, and well-appointed with desk, breakfast table, and flat screen tv. The bed was very comfortable; we like a firm bed. The vanity needs a hook or towel bar placed higher for hanging toiletry bags.
The hotel is near the airport, so it is not a scenic area. I didn't see any vagrants, still I wouldn't walk around here at night,. The hotel itself is safe and quiet at night. Light traffic noise in the day. If you want scenery and Oakland airport shuttle, I'd recommend the Marina Inn in San Leandro. But for proximity to Oakland and SF this is a great value.
I wish there was a complementary breakfast, but continental or full breakfast can be pre-ordered through room service or ordered in the restaurant. The wireless Internet works very well.
Cons: No scenery. It is an older, updated hotel.
We are very satisfied with this hotel. It is worth more than the price we paid on Hotwire.
Worst hotel ever...don't stay here!.
The shuttle was slow picking us up. It took them 30 minutes to find our reservation. The maid stole from our suitcase in our room and the hotel would not reimburse us. The area is bad. We had several homeless people ask us for money and saw many of them digging through the trash dumpster in the parking lot. The staff is not very friendly. There is no hot tub or jacuzzi as they advertise on many sites. They charge to take you anywhere other than the airport. The beds are hard and uncomfortable. Not a good value for the money at all.
