Comfortable and quiet
I was attending a conference a mile away in Oakland, so I used a cab each day. I would recommend that you have a car, though, because there are no restaurants too close by -- a market and small mall about a five minute walk, however. I was surprised at the meagerness of the breakfast, which wasn't what I remembered from other hotels in the chain. But these hotels are meant for those who fend for themselves more than in full service hotels, so you have to know to ask for what you need (including room service). the kitchen unit was was set up nicely, and I easily received what I needed for my short stay. Front desk staff were busy, but if not at the desk, responded quickly to my call when I asked for a blow dryer. I found them to be pleasant and welcoming. Location was quiet and the bed was wonderful. There is a train that goes through Oakland, so you hear the whistle, but I was seldom aware of that.
