The pictures are very deceiving. Rooms appear clean, but aren't. This is a pre-pay hotel. The sheets stunk like they hadn't been cleaned in a month. The towels smelt sort of clean. Light bulbs we're missing. Get the wifi code before you leave the front desk. You have to pay and get a code from the front desk. Ridic! Staff... More

The motel is right off the water and area is very quiet and clean. The day we checked in they were power washing the whole motel so it was a little bothersome with the noise and water. The spa was not working and they did want to know names of guests in rooms and also you have to have a... More

This is a decent hotel for the price. It is on the Embarcadero, so next to water which is nice. We had a decent room without a lot of amenities. We got an ADA room, which wasn't necessary for us, but it's good for those that need it!

The rooms have just been remodeled and look very modern and are clean. The Motel is right next to a small pier and overlooks the Oakland embarcadero with a nice view. Parking can get pretty competitive at night even in their big parking lot.

Very nice room...modern and clean. Bed was decent but not great. Nice location for my purpose of heading to the Fox Theatre on NYE for a concert. Property is nice with the backside butting up against a marina. Paid wi-fi? More stars if the room was a tad cheaper...$100+ for a Motel 6? Make it $85 for a 4 star...

We were here for 6 days, visiting relatives in Alameda. We had some issues during the week of folks walking around all night. Only saw the police out in the parking lot one morning. But the last night made me give it this rating. Party next door, number of people there, yelling and loud. Music thru the walls. I went... More

Room was clean, front desk staff was friendly and the price was right. It was nice to be near the water and the area didn't seem too bad. I know others had some issues with the area/neighborhood, we didn't have a problem. I would definitely return!

I am here with my co-workers for a week or so. Other area hotels were sold out for an Oracle conference. I am not paying the bill, so I can't tell you what the room cost but I can imagine it's well under 100 bucks per night. On the plus side, it's in a fairly attractive waterfront area with an... More

Pros: The room seemed clean and the beds were comfortable, the water view was very nice. Close to Jack London square, Ferry terminal, and several restaurants. Cons: Room and bathroom are pretty small. No fridge, micro, or coffee (there was coffee at the reception). It's kinda dated (I don't care about this as long as everything is clean) Overall, I...
