The man at the front desk was very nice.
everything else. Literally everything about this hotel was terrible. My room was off a scary desolate hallway filled with broken furniture. My view was of the empty pool surrounded by more broken furniture ringed by razor wire fence.

Air conditioning too noise.

This is not a hotel, it is something else.
The rooms are very ugly and smells stinky, the staff never smiles, I would never go to the Americas best value anymore, it was a nightmare.

Proximity to downtown Oakland (CA).
Rooms lack: phones, clocks, adequate table space/work surface, dining w/lighting, consistent TV service, appliance quality between rooms. Entry door weather stripping against weather/sound/bugs.

They make up their own rules as they go. None of the staff provided the same info, very confusing.

The location it's the best thing about this hotel.
Continental breakfast is a joke they really need to stop referring to this area in such a way.

All of the staff was friendly
Didn't clean on weekends, trash under furniture, teenagers doing drugs and making noise, local families staying in singe rooms fighting. They also started a roof renovation while we were staying at the motel. Neighborhood was fine except for this motel

The staff is great, the location is great.
For $--/night I shouldn't have had dirty socks from the previous guests on the floor.

the bed was a bit uncomfortable and the restroom door didn't lock properly

The maid threw my stuff out . I mean 1000s of dollars in clothes . She didn’t tell front desk there was stuff in it . She probably was going to get them later . Did she not realize I was coming back ?
