Tiny room but clean, lots of thick towels. Very substantial breakfast spread.

Public Transportation Nearby
They upgraded our room to a king instead of a queen. It was conveniently located a couple of blocks from BART, which we took from SFO to get to our hotel. Free Oakland City shuttle on 14th took us within a block of Amtrak. It was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Free breakfast was good. Indian restaurant next door was accessible through the lobby. Only downside was the nearby construction work. The neighborhood was not the best late at night, but fine during the day.

Affordable gem in Downtown Oakland
This is a pretty no-frills hotel with small (but cozy!) rooms. But it is very affordable, staff are very friendly, rooms are clean, and breakfast includes protein! In addition, there are several restaurants within a 2-block radius, and the two at which I dined were fantastic.

Overpriced, Loud Location, and Bad Cleaning Staff
The stay here started off not too bad. I got there and the door was locked....okay...the lady eventually lets me in realizing that I'm trying to check in (in the middle of her personal phone call). I then realized what kind of area this was and why the door was locked. Speaking as a 6'3 male I would not recommend this place to women traveling alone. The elevator is only slightly faster than taking the stairs. I did not sleep one full night due to the noise level around the hotel. Normally I sleep like a sack of bricks, but people were dumping trash cans at 5 am, or the police were a block away on megaphones handling some kind of situation at 2 am. It was unbelievable. I normally tip the wait staff that cleans my room everyday. However, I noticed on the second day that the staff was not replacing my glasses with clean ones. In one case, I placed a piece of gum on one of the glass covers (thinking that it would be thrown away when they cleaned). Then when my room was cleaned, instead of replacing the glass cover, they placed it (and the used piece of gum) on top of the glass. For the amount of money you pay to stay here I would have gone elsewhere. I could understand if it was a cheap hotel but it is not so something like this is not something you should deal with.
