The only thing I liked about my stay here was its proximity to various business: Acme Bread, 4th Street shopping No AC - just a small round fan hung up on the corner of the room, old musty carpeting with a film on it (had to go to walgreens to purchase socks to wear when in), old linens/curtains/scratchy towels, indifferent help desk.
If you like good old-fashioned funky motels, you'll love this one. It could be anywhere in America, but it is a bargain in Berkeley. And the sushi bar which shares the parking lot is terrific.
Good value for the money. Easy access to good restaurants and within walking distance (10-15min) from the bart. Great friendly staff. We got upgraded to a larger room (since they had the vacancy) for no extra cost, and also left our car there for the day (free parking) after checking out. Hotel is very old, and the facilities are run down. It was ok as a place to crash at for a night, but it's not a "nice" hotel by any stretch of the imagination.
That it was in the city of Berkeley. Filthy, run down with smelly rooms. There was an unstable patron who required an ambulance and several police cars. Blocking my car and more than probably scratching it. All this occurred late and was very disruptive to our sleep.
The bathroom looked recently remodeled with granite shower walls, counter, and floor tile. There was a large flat screen TV with directTV. The room had a refrigerator and microwave. The bed was comfortable. The location was good. The price was good. The room was dark and small. There is traffic noise from the street. Worst of all the room smelled sour and the air coming from the heater - AC unit was stale smelling. The continental breakfast was very basic, but I didn't expect much for the price we paid.
Nice bathroom, had mini fridge and microwave, very quiet. Beds were quite small, room could be cleaner, quite expensive for what we received.
Is it possible to be more queit during night shift ? However, it's too close to road. Car noise is one issue in it. One issue: car noise.
We booked this hotel for our last night of our vacation. The hotel is near the airport, so we hadn't drive to far the next morning. This hotel is ideal for a one night stay to catch your flight home the next morning. The room was clean and comfortable.
A very convenient location, between a major freeway and a parallel major street. The breakfast was also very convenient. The parking was very tedious, given that both of the lots are small and one of them has directional parking in which it is difficult to back out.
Quite clean room, free internet connection, good price, ok for budget hotel. Too close to airport, so you get 747's passing over your room all the time, no breakfast.
The hotel was very close to the airport. The manager was friendly and helpful No towels in my room, I had to go ask for some. Room should have been cleaned a little more before I got there
The hotel was near the airport They really don't have a shuttle. They paid for our cab from the airport to the hotel so that was a plus. However, we had an early flight the next day and we paid for our own cab.
Breakfast, well organized in an economical and efficient way. The shuttle from SFO airport to the hotel was not available when I arrived. I had to take a cab which is an extra cost that I did not anticipate.
Very convenient to airport... shuttle was very prompt The hotel was very run-down. When we arrived their were no towels in the room and no soap and we had to get them from another room. The TV was so dark it was hard to see the picture and the remote did not work. Had to get one from another room too. Very Old TV. We had to carry all our luggage to and from the 2nd floor with no help. With narrow stairs only and at 77 years old this was a very bad choice for us. The bathroom fan was louder than the aircrafts flying right overhead. Thank gosh it was only for overnight... no restaurants within 8 long blocks, a very long walk to have a dinner at a small Chinese or at a Mexican restaurant... only other food was a donut shop. Can't recommend this one!.
Rooms are clean They ask$100 deposit on credit card when check in, actually we were charged $300 on credit and manager said we won't be able to get it because the toilet is clotted up.... Worst experience e ever!
Close to the airport
The proximity to the airport
The staff were very friendly. It was a decent complimentary breakfast. It was more than we would have eaten at home. The rooms were clean and since all we were doing was sleeping there, that was all we were concerned with. Towels were thin and a litle scratchy. They could invest in some new linens. The area around the hotel looked a little seedy,but we didn't have any problems and never heard of any. It was well lit. They actually even had some covered parking.
The free parking was a plus. Everything else! The towels in the bathroom were dirty, the tv didn't work, there was hair on the bed, the shower was filthy, everything in the room was breaking, the bathroom didn't lock, the walls were so thin you could hear the people next door talking, the free breakfast was disgusting, and the whole place was right next to the ghetto!!! This is the first time I have decided not to live in a Hilton or Sheraton and I regret it so much. Never coming back here again! I'm embarrassed for booking this place and making my friends stay here!
there was nothing worth liking at this hotel. The check in was dealt with in the most unprofessional manner I've ever seen in any hotel. The uneducated, complaining, screaming check-in staff would have been comedy material if it wasn't for the fact they were responsible for getting me to a good night's sleep. The hotel was very rundown, moldy curtains, loud banging air conditioner, drunk guests on the balcony and walkways at 3am, smelly rooms. Overalll - flat out disaster and not even worth 1 star.
Ilove how nice the staff was it was very easy to find it was bye the water I CANT WAIT TO STAY THERE AGAIN WASENT VERY MUCH PARKING GOT BACK KINDA LATE HAD TO PARK ON THE STREET MY CAR GOT SCRACHED
Nothing had bed bugs I didn't like anything. It was awful
The location. The staff was incredible unprofessional and rude and there were bugs in the room and on the towels. Definitely will never stay here again.
the Location to on the bay area was convenient for a business trip
The clean room and the excellent cleaning staff. The bathroom sink kept stopping up.
Liked the flat panel TV and King bed Room had an odor
Relatively clean rooms, usual provisions (minus a coffee maker) Phone didn't work so couldn't call to tell them that the WiFi cut out every few seconds--when you're on business and have trouble accessing the internet while away, makes for an aggravating stay; shower didn't drain, so filled up with water; evening check-in staff were courteous but day check-out staff couldn't be bothered; ad said HBO---no HBO; people hanging out outside their rooms at night talking at the top of the lungs--good thing I brought ear plugs; Poor and not totally safe neighborhood---didn't leave room at all after getting back from being out
Poor and not totally safe neighborhood. At the motel many occupants were outside their rooms screaming and drinking alcohol. Room stank with bad smell, Floor needed vacuuming. Bathroom too small. No privacy, can hear next room's tenants speak. Weekend price increased significantly, probably to accommodate prostitution nearby.
The staff was almost perfect. The front counter attendant was super friendly, courteous, and quick to check us in. His name was John and definitely was great. The location makes travelling to San Francisco fairly easy by car (25 minutes until downtown). The lake nearby (1-2 blocks) is very nice. The area doesn't feel ghetto, but definitely not super classy. There is graffiti/mural on the building behind the motel and it was so insanely gorgeous (my bathroom window had the perfect view of it). The place looks fairly maintained externally. Some Mexican guests next to us decided to blast some Mariachi/Folk Music at 2:30AM outside their room on an external speaker sitting in front of their room door for who knows what reason and we had to call the front desk and they handled the situation, but then our rude neighbors decided it'd be quieter to bring their speaker inside which made it even worse so after a second call the staff came to the room and told them in person to stop and then it was quiet. Situation was resolved in about 10 minutes in total. The paint is clean and doesn't look old and the outside of the building and parking lot also looked very clean. The staircases need some lights, both the adults (Sister and I) missed the last step coming down and luckily we didn't fall and just tripped. The bedroom we first got had hair on the sheets (I didn't personally see, but my sister had changed the room while I unloaded car and had a smoke). Our new room had used tissues in the drawer of the dresser. We had 2 Towels, 2 Washrags and 2 Hand towels for a 2 Double bed bedroom and it would definitely go a long way to do more washrags at minimum (I don't mind reusing towels, but not washrags and no washrag for face if you decide to shower). The floor had what looks like animal hair. So definitely if I had advice to this place, put out a ton of safety strips on the steps and lighting. Also, either fire your cleaning staff and hire some new ones, or start checking rooms they sign off on because they are not doing their job. Also, I would strongly suggest an enforced quiet time of 11PM weekdays and 12AM weekends and put a 1 warning policy before you kick people out. There are just some really small changes that would go a long long long way in improving the overall value in staying here. I didn't bother with the breakfast they offered (didn't even go in to look), but I heard it was pretty much slim offerings so a small variety increase would go a long way too.
Staff is very nice no coffee at 05.30am
sorry, nothing comes to mind, not even the price, because I have gotten MUCH better quality for the same price. There was not even a number on my door, there was not a sign on the office door that was easy to see, there was no wastebasket (!) or soap or washcloth. There was NO place to hang clothes -- not even a door hook -- just a bureau.
Nothing. We only stayed for 2 hours until we could find a 2nd place to stay the same night.
Roof over your head.Clean functional room. Good for budget traveler.Nothing fancy about it. Tricky to find the first time as there is no sign on the property. Staff only works during check-in and out. Never saw anyone except at check-in. Small 20 rooms. My room had a sky light in it. Just my personal preference that I like my room dark in the morning. At sunrise the room lit up from the sky light. Too early for me. Notwithstanding, I would stay here again.
It was a place to stay. It wasn't clean and no customer service.
Free wifi and you can't beat the price. If you can't stomach a near zero amenity place, with nearly no hot water or soap for example, spend more and stay elsewhere. Slightly better than sleeping in you car, but not much. That said, I got what I paid for, would stay again.
If you are considering this hotel, save your money. Just shoot someone and go to prison. You will be safer and have a much cleaner room with better amenities. I left and saved my life instead. No lock on the window, a three inch gap under the door, hotel staff not present so they have a keybox to retrieve your key, paint peeling off the wall, no working AC when it is 85 degrees outside, a bed that looks like it is 30 years old, filthy sheets...
The hotel was ridiculous one bath towel, gnats,crack heads walking around, mold in bathtub no cable or tv very scary place
The bed was pretty comfortable. The room looked very new. The smell was very strong -- an odor of the like you get with a new mattress. There should be more ventilation.
No frills, but cost was good. I would bring your own towels, like any hotel/motel they are gross. Bathroom was nice and updated, much space to put your stuff out. TV Location Parking Towels Noise Some people/area/location (shady) You had to be buzzed in and the check in pepilepsy were behind bullet proof glass.
The bed was really comfortable and the room clean .Housekeeping was helpful!bathroom was cute Poor facilities such as hairdyer .Microwave . fridge....the location is far from downtown but the transportation is convenient.
For the price it is so good. Maid service is not diarily
Nice place. newly remodeled, friendly staff, free parking and WiFI
Cleaned every day. Easy access to downtown. No problems with staff.cheap. It's not super quiet. I hear lots of traffic and loud people cross by the room but it is expected at a motel this cheap. Put the AC on to drown it out.
Even before I arrived I was impressed...they called me while I was on the road to inquire about my special needs (ground floor room only), and when I got there the staff was friendly and helpful, clearly Asian of some type but speaking excellent English; and then I got to the room. Amazing! It looked like it was 'fresh out of the box', clean and neat and very well appointed...a desk one can work a laptop at, a firm mattress and plenty of soft but sturdy pillows...and don't get me started on the glass-walled shower. I blanched a little at the price tag but I have to say, in the end, it was well worth it. Next time I visit the Emeryville/Oakland area I'll be staying there for sure!
Location was great. We always like to choose Motel 6 so we can bring our dogs along. It's pretty much what you would expect from any cheap Motel 6; they tend to get pretty universal.
Water view No guests after 10pm
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
The staff is great. Everything was the best
Not much... Clogged synk, bad water pressure & terrible cust. Service. Were told manager would call us after we complained at checkout, we never heard from him!!! Other than that everything was perfect. By far worst motel 6 experience / done with motel 6.
NEED ADDTIONAL ICE MACHINES.
Location Registration staff would not honor my Priceline reservation. I was charged $xx+ for each night my party and I stayed. I was told my Priceline confirmation had not been received.
Very nice, recently refurbished motel with a prime location right on the waterfront of a scenic part of the Inner Harbor. We requested and got a bayside room when we checked in. The in-room wireless couldn't support a laptop although it did work for a cell phone.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
location;price no coffee maker
the room assigned to us faced the parking lot, we asked if we could change it to bay side. The staff did it with no problems.Really nice to have sunset and bay outside our door. the spa was a bit dirty. and the bathroom door stuck, seemed to be off hinged. We notified the desk when we checked out. Did not have a laundry area.
Near ocean Manager altitude
located close to the freeway The staffs lack of customer service.
I asked for a non smoking wheel chair accesible room at the first floor, they didn't have it! They gave me a smoking room without facilities for for a handicap person. Neighbors we're loud all night! Bad neighborhood!
Staff was absolutely amazing! Really respectful! And we were situated with our room with no complications. The room was not fully cleaned. The bathroom towels were wet. Trash was not taken out. Before giving someone a room make sure it's fully ready. Other than that we had a wonderful stay and we will return soon.
Good location near BART, with easy access into San Francisco. Very helpful staff! Simple and clean, no thrills accommodation
Inexpensive Bad cleaning in bathroom, no restaurants around
Clean, up dated and modern. New carpets and large shower. Location in the hood. But still was safe. No bathtub.
The receptionist was rude!! He mistakenly overcharged me $10 yet showed zero apologetic attitude. Plus the towels had eyelashes and dust on them. Terrible experience.
It was the cheapest I could find in the SF area. The location is very sketchy and we had an unpleasant encounter with a passerby in the early morning. It would have been nice if there had been security.
Very clean, new TV and mini fridge. Wifi worked great. Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. I was checked in by Kiki (I believe) and she was very kind and professional. After reading some of the reviews online I was preparing myself for the worst, but was very pleasantly surprised. Perfect motel if you're on a budget and need to stay someplace close to the city. Pretty bad location in a seemingly bad neighborhood, but it was surprisingly quiet at night.
It's good enough for the price. The area isn't that bad but it's still Oakland. Housekeeping needs to happen later than 11am.
Location and price were ver good. Convenient to MacArthur bart station. The room and bedding were very clean. The room was not stocked with toilet paper. A coffee maker would be nice too.
Good value - clean and comfortable. The area is not that bad. Distance from San Francisco: you have to take a car and pay the bay bridge toll (going into SF only). public transportation (train) is one block from the hotel but it doesn't work eves and night.
Inexpensive Inn. Good relationship money/ service received.
Clean room and bathroom
It was close to where I needed to be. I got what I paid for. Walls are very thin, could hear conversations from other rooms. No maid service (granted they called the 2nd day and asked if we needed service). Towels were cheep and trying to dry yourself off after a shower...not very absorbent.
Location It needs a fresh coat of paint in the room. Change the bathroom door and lock.re arrange the dresser.
Good for the price bad neighborhood
Price seemed good until I arrived than it was over priced. Cleanliness staff and they never answer phone. Non-english speaking.
The room was clean, comfortable and quiet, friendly staff, and excellent value, given its proximity to the train. I also appreciated the microwave and fridge. Not fancy, but a great value. The neighborhood seemed a little rough, though we had no trouble with any passersby. I would have felt intimidated as a lone woman walking late at night, but felt pretty safe with my partner along.
Cheapest in area, decent room. The neighborhood could be better.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
The room smelled of cleaner. I saw them air drying the comforters, meaning they actually wash them. Shower looked a bit sketchy, so I avoided it. The family running the motel was very accommodating, and for that I am thankful. The cleanliness of the bathroom. The fact that you need an armed guard to patrol the motel parking lot.
Getting out alive. One of the worst rooms I've stayed in. Dangerous neighborhood, homeless everywhere, loud conversations on the street all night, no ADA non smoking rooms on the 1st floor. I was charged more than quoted. Cigarette smell. Afraid to leave car in parking.
Nothing Showed up and they only had two out of three rooms available, also wanted cash insread of a credit card. We had to leave and stay at another hotel.
This was the worst, hotel I have ever stayed at. There was mold on the shower curtain, the walls were plastered with dirt, blood, and other things that I was unable to determine. There was nothing I liked! Everything!
Has A/c Room is disgusting, things dont.
only stay here if you really need to. you get what you paid for. ok bed, but really bad towels, and no power in the shower
Distance from Mills College Staff was pleasant and courteous, quick to respond when service was needed Mold around shower and bathroom window case
The inside of the room seem clean and new. The motel is in the ghetto. It's for taking a person for a quickie. You just don't feel safe here. The price for this type of place was definitely not worth it. I've paid way less for way better hotels.
Noisy, dicey area
The staff was extremely helpful and the rooms were very clean and well kept. I had trouble with the cable in my first room, so the owner came in immediately and began working on it, exchanging cables and repairing the wall socket. He then apologized and offered to upgrade me to a different room for the inconvenience. The neighborhood wasn't the best in the world, but it wasn't terrible, either.
The staff was confused and confusing. The man at the front desk did not know how to retrive our reservation. Even with no other distractions, check-in took nearly 45 min!!! Quality of room was poor and I did not feel safe in the neighborhood.
The crown lodge was not too far from my mother's house For some reason, our key wasn't always working
