Good hotel for the Oakland area Aug 30, 2011
I wanted to stay at an Hotel in Oakland during my 3-day trip in San Francisco.

BUT I didn't know that you had to pay 5$ everytime you crossed the bridge (golden gate, oakland bridge...). Everytime you ENTER the city of San Francisco, you gotta a 5-6$ fee..

3 days: 15$

3 day parking in the city of sf (for walking around): 35-70$

3 day parking - overnight- at the oakland hotel: 20$ a night (3 nights 60$)

OK, so you wanna spend 145$ on parking? Instead of spending some more bucks for a hotel in san francisco...

I will never again stay in Oakland, just to save some bucks with the hotel.

Let's talk about the hotel.

The hotel was alright...and had a furniture tattoo theme. So expect a lot of sailor jerry tattoo flashs hanging around in the lobby, and outside your room. which really liked actually.

coffee in the morning was for free...just coffee!

wifi internet was for free.

Our room was on the 5th floor... but the balcony wasn't private.. it was rather a shared balcony. you could walk around the whole top floor...and walk by the other guest's bedroom window... a big deal? no! but still... private balcony is always better!

at least everyone get a partial ocean view this way, if you're stay on the front side of the hotel ;)

actually at night there were lots of people in the hotel area. lots of restaurants nearby, some fastfood joints, some bars. a great bar/lounge just next to the hotel lobby.

parking is valet-parking 20$ a night... we got a parking everyday, even though the valet sometimes has to park your car on the next block.

the fitness room, was ok...but not impressive..

neither were the rooms.. our room was big. but it looked old, with a new relook (tattoo themed furniture). Old tv, no LCD or LED screen. no fridge.

Would I turn back? sure... the hotel was OK. but oakland just sucks. there's not much to do in the bay area. it's a 15 minute walk away from the BART station...

OH yeah..before i forget !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




i'm not sensitive about NOISE. but there's a BIG f***ing traing rolling by every hour just next to the hotel. the rails go across the city... so industrial trians roll by every hour right in the middle of the street, right next to the hotel. and for safety reasons is keeps honking every 20 seconds while rolling through the city...and believe the honk is very LOUD!!!





i'm never concerned about noise...but this train sucked ass! if you can't sleep well at night...don't stay at this hotel :)
