    I had booked for arrival after a flight into Oakland. First impressions were horrible, hot, noisy with Amtrack running along the front of the hotel until late. No aircon. Rooms at the back have windows that open. Reception gave the game away. It was filthy dirty and chaotic. I walked in, looked at a room at the back and promptly left. I wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole.

    Didn’t find any pro’s. The lady on reception had been a bit short with us on the phone when we needed directions, but was nicer in person.

    Pretty disgusting but it seems that so many hotels in America are if you want budget.

    There was nothing to be liked

    Overall it was substandard.The features exept the TV were non existent. We spend some valuable time to get towels, clean pillow cases, blankets and hairdryer.The room was not made up during our 2 day stay. The staff of the hotel was unprofessionell and obvious understaffed.

    Location to ferry services and Jack London Square

    Tv didn't work after first night reported but didn't resolve no breakfast even though listed. No towels Staff didn't seem to care what we needed. Not interested in their guests. Trains run literally outside the front door all night. Could hear everything going on in room next door.

    Carpet is very old, dirty with a lot of cigarette burns. No A/C. They only put 3 towels in the room. Needs overall maintanence.

    My room was horrible. There was no soup and shampoo. In my friend's room was no ashtray. The hotel very close with railway and it is bad area. In my room №324 was bedbugs and now I have itch and covered with red spots. My friend had no problem with this but who knows how many rooms are having bedbugs. Probably they will handle it but anyway it is an indicator of very bad and not clean place. Also my card from room didn't work every day. I will not recommend to stay in this hotel.

    Good

    It was clean enough, and in a great location! Lots of things to discover in the neighbourhood.

    It was minimal - we had no trash can and 1 towel for a room with 2 beds. Next to the train tracks, which I actually enjoy but it could be a problem for others.

    Good

    Very close to ferry terminal & restaurants!

    Room had no towels or ice bucket. Toilet was clogged and had a funky odor. Once maintenance was called the problem was resolved immediately, however would have been nice to have a prepared room ready for us since the hotel wasn't that busy that particular night.

    Doing orders online

    The people at the desk tried to add $11 to my bill after I checked out because of taxes, we were booked online for $75 and then they told us we need to pay $85 per night with taxex, Then the person that checked us out, tried to get another $11 because of taxes.

    The location

    The rooms look as if management doesn't care; it also looks as if the clientele they service are drug sellers and users. The dressers have burn marks, the carpet us dirty, the curtains are dangling from the rods..... The rooms don't look sanitary.
