1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service
This place is under the freeway in a bad area of Oakland, and requires a $100 CASH ONLY deposit. I didn't have cash so I asked if I could use a credit card but they refused. I promptly left to find another place. No need to stay here, sketchy service.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service
The room is furbished with mini-fridge, microwave and coffee make and coffee supplies. Friendliness of staff, attention to clients were nowhere to find. They made us feel like they are looking down on their guests. Every guest was required to leave $ 100 deposit for incidental and damage in CASH which is hardly a common practice in motels and lodges in big cities and requirement that it has to be in cash could put some of the guests in distress. Deposit is released to you upon check out and after physical inspection by the hotel personnel making the guests feel ackward and looking suspicious when there should be no reason to. Credit/debit card itself used to reserve the room should be sufficient.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Terrible place to stay. Looks like it is in the middle of a very unsafe area even though it advertises as part of Chinatown but just a feew blocks away buut a world of difference. Didn't even stay there because felt so unsafe and looked like a very poor apartment building with flimsy locks, not friendly proprietor (who was behind bars on window behind check in counter). Had to pay an extra $230 to double book at another property but even though expensive to do, thought, what is the price of life!! Definitely DO NOT STAY here
