(TripAdvisor doesn't allow amending of posted reviews, so I deleted the original one so I could write this update, at their suggestion.) About a month ago, I posted a lengthy negative review, detailing how my stay at this hotel was sub-standard in many ways. Horrible bed; missing lamps; upstairs bathroom leaking down into mine; etc. I ended my review by...

I have stayed with this hotel several times in the past few years. The hotel has upgraded their services by many-fold without hiking up their rates. I travel to San Francisco for business but stay in Richmond because of the great prices this hotel offers. Moreover, the hotel is just 20 mins drive from the city. In my most recent...

Hi Mike, Thanks for taking time out to write a review and also mentioning the upgrades. While we don't have the space for a breakfast room, we have made every effort to provide a 'break fast on the go.' We listened to our guests.

Dear Haiko, I researched your stay in January and we do have the 3 rooms you requested in our records. On one of the rooms, the guest in your party requested a smoking room.

We stayed one night at ABVI in Richmond after having a bad night at another hotel. We moved over the ABVI and found it to be a great value. The rate was the best we could find. It was close to the hub of business that we needed to attend. Best of all the king size bed was actually comfortable....

This is a small inn located right off interstate. Although the exterior of the building is old, the rooms are very nice and clean. The room had everything required for your stay including microwave, fridge and a portable coffee maker. Being a bay area resident, I hesitated staying in Richmond, owing to its bad reputation. This motel, however, is in...
