JUST PLAIN UGLY!!!

THE FIRST ROOM HAD WET CARPET AND SMELL LIKE WET A WET DOG. THE NEXT ROOM HAD FILTHY CARPET AND A CHAIR THAT LOOKED AS IF SOMEONE HAD URINATED ON IT. THERE WAS A WATER LOGGED PORTION OF THE WALL IN THE BATHROOM AND PIECES OF PAINT AND WOOD CHIPS WERE FALLING OFF OF IT. THE STAFF NEVER CALLED ME BACK WHEN I ASKED FOR ANOTHER ROOM.

lackluster, for a big price

Upon arrival, the desk person acted as if my being there were a huge inconvience for her. Why do people who dislike people get these kinds of jobs? There didn't seem to be anyone around and it was VERY quiet.

Don't Believe The Pictures

I was traveling with 3 other adults and we choose this hotel due to the impressive pictures and location to the Oakland airport. However, I will NEVER stay here again. The hotel was nothing great and was poorly located - with a train constantly coming through at all hours and blowing the horn we were all able to get little rest. It became a joke the rest of the weekend how bad of a place this was.
