I liked how comfortable the beds were.
The crackheads lurking in the parking lot in the a.m.
It was clean and our accommodation was at ground level.
The noise of the freeway and fairly seedy surroudings. No continental breakfast and no restaurant close by.
Room was well maintained and clean, bed was comfortable, shower and plumbing generally worked very well. Air conditioning worked well. It is a very short walk from the BART Lake Merritt station, and also has free parking. It is a no frills high value property with very reasonable rates. The staff was pleasant and responsive.
The motel is right next to the freeway, so there is unavoidable traffic noise. The "free internet" did not work at all during my two day stay, and I was repeatedly told it would be fixed. When I departed it was still not working.
Parking - too less space Old rooms Strange area Expensive for what you get
Room was dirty. Location is horrible. No parking. False advertising. Do not stay here Booked.net please drop from your website.
Civic Centre Lodge is excellent value for money motel considering its close proximity to San Francisco (12 mins by bart) The rooms are clean, ensuite with very confortable beds. Its a standard motel but at a reduced rate given the area. The staff stored our bags upon check-out so we could pick them up later in the day. No problems with staff/motel facilities and would stay there again when next in the bay area. BART station is a 4 minute walk away.
Location only. Oakland is a bit sketchy but if you use a bit of common sense you shouldn't have any issues.
I liked how it did not take long to travel to San Francisco, since we were going in and out of the city throughout the weekend. It was conviently located to the freeway for this weekend.
Even though it was close to the freeway to get into the city, there was some outside noises we could still hear. Such as traveling cars. But it wasn't too loud to keep us up from sleeping, or enjoying time alone hanging out.
Air conditionning in summer is worth it !
Close to subway train and very clean.
Location is a little bit dark at night.
