Andrea, Lemon Grove, visiting Scottish Rite Center Oakland Fri, 9 February 2018
Since I have never been to Oakland, I had no idea of where to stay. So I ended up at the Civic Center Lodge. Here is the thing - I was traveling by myself, female, and I was given a room on the bottom level. I asked the motel manager if I would be safe. He responded 'of course, you have nothing to worry about'. Well I reminded him that he kept his door locked and I had to ring a bell to get him to unlock it so that I could enter. Also, when asking the Taxi driver if I was safe in the area, he told me during the day I would be okay, but do not walk around at night. Okay, maybe the safety thing was my issue, but the NOISE, freeway, train, and just people walking up and down the stairs. I did not have a problem with the bathroom window as some travelers did, because it was frosted and no one could see through it - just remember to close it. The BART is close, but not safe at night to walk the block plus to the motel. Only in my opinion.
Liked: It was clean; linens (towels, sheets etc.); fridge; microwave and coffee pot in room.
Disliked: The NOISE (please see review).

Liked: It was a great stay for the night; the price was very reasonable. The rooms were clean, the front desk clerk was very friendly and accommodating. I would stay there again.

Liked: Room had a microwave and refrigerator. It was only 2 blocks away from the BART station. Room outlets also had USB charging ports.
Disliked: The carpet was dirty and turned my feet black. There was a lot of dust everywhere. The edge of carpet where it meets the wall was grey meaning build up of dust. I could see light around the door as the seal was shot. Mattress sheet smelled of BO like it was never washed.

Liked: The location is super, a 4 min walk to the BART. It's just 2 stops away from the city of San Francisco. The beds are very comfortable and it's super clean! Everyday you get some new coffee.
Disliked: There is some noise from the traffic and the guests above.
