    Fabulous

    Good clean room, good location, good value for money.

    Breakfast was included but was very basic, seeing cereals left out the night before only partly covered with cling film put me off... but it was a reasonable priced hotel so a walk down the street lead me to several nice places for breakfast!

    The room was the sixe of a closet. It was supposed to be a room for two, but my friend chose to stay at the Marriott across the street. The TV volume was inaudiable and could not be raised.

    Fabulous

    The personal staff was very polite and helpful.

    The breakfast was too simple, with no fruits, cheese, ham, etc.

    Exceptional

    We felt safe, welcome and comfortable throughout our stay. We really enjoyed the retro/boutique ambience, and the staff was very gracious. The location is excellent, with nearby dining and transportation that worked very well for our needs. The room was adequately appointed, although an updated TV would be a plus. The continental breakfast was appreciated but could do with some fruit/ non-starchy choices. It was very quiet, although our view was towards another wall. For our visit, it suited our needs ideally, and we will certainly return.

    Close to downtown, close to mass transit and close to ballpark. Clean, very helpful and courteous staff. Will stay there again and recommend to anyone who asks me about a location to stay!!!

    Great character, great location, comfortable and fantastic value. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There were half price appetizers every night. Walking distance to bart and the Oakland Ferry terminal. Farmers market Friday morning.

    Superb

    I liked to room. The combination of the outside window and the window facing the inside well made for an unusual and pleasant design. The renovation has left the building with character and very functional.

    The downstairs public restroom was kinda scary.

    Superb

    The hotel is real nice & I like the fact of complimentary breakfast. The bar could open up earlier though & took room an hour to heat up. But over all I loved it!

    Superb

    The front desk person was most helpful in letting us change rooms early and before we even checked out of the first room. He found us a room on the same floor too.

    We were in room 407. We were unable to turn the lights or the fan in the bathroom off during the entire time of our stay. It made the room very hot and a bit noisy.

    Very good

    The location is excellent. The room was clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was adequate, though I would have liked some fresh fruit.

    I do not like the $50 charge as insurance for additional charges. I stay in hotels around the world on a regular basis and find this policy objectionable and a bit insulting. Incidentally, the desk staff when I checked in that evening were rude and not at all customer service oriented. However, the day staff the following morning were marvelous. Right now, I will not be recommending the hotel because of the deposit issue and the rude desk staff.

    good location, close to fwys and BART.

    a party was going on when we arrived for the evening. It was very loud, and we had to wait until the end, !:00, to get to sleep.

    Nice room, comfortable beds, friendly staff.

    We were traveling with children and the room was a bit crowded. It would be fine for two people. No refrigerator.

    The location was good.

    Breakfast was not worth noting as included with the room and there really were not that many restaurants with-in walking distance really.
