reasonable location, but room was musty Posted 25-Aug-2014
We were looking for a place to stay while moving our freshman son into UC Berkeley. We booked late, so this was the best-value location we could find on the way, that was halfway between Oakland Airport and the Berkeley campus. So far so good. Though the lobby is nice, the room seemed quite old & tired in terms of furnishings and surfaces. And, there was a musty smell in the room, especially in the bathroom. We tried to air it out, but didn't seem to make that much difference. And, the breakfast included in the price was pretty sad: nothing fresh, everything pre-wrapped, and not even cream for the coffee, just artificial creamer. Overally, the room was tolerable; and overall this was a reasonable value and pretty convenient location (though a bit out of the way, since we needed to go thru tunnels under the water to get to Alameda from the freeway). Though it wasn't a terrible experience, we woudn't stay here again.
