I used to live in SF and know the area well. A recent trip to SF ended with an early morning flight out of Oakland so I decided to avoid the morning rush hour and save a few bucks by staying near the airport in Oakland.
What a surprise this place was. The general area surrounding the motel is an older, mixed use industrial park. Not a necessarily nice place to stay. But the motel itself has been recently renovated and is clean, safe and has a large, well lit parking area. Further, it is only one exit from the Oakland Airport!
While I could easily recommend the motel for a family on a budget as it is only a few blocks from a freeway entrance (and hence all of the area, SF and Oakland are within a 40 minute drive), the strength of this oasis is for folks doing as I did, preparing for an early flight out of Oakland. It's a step above a Motel 6 (my usual standard of measure) at a competitive price. Just be sure to have dinner before you arrive as there are no eateries in the area.
