Had a really nice stay here. You can't beat the location immediately next to campus, and the hotel staff was really helpful and friendly. The room was comfortable, clean, and had an unbeatable view of the Camponile but a little bit cramped.
The room had some tech. issues: the phone didn't work, the remote barely worked, and the window wouldn't stay open. But all of these were rather minor inconveniences. For the most part the hotel was exactly what we needed, the only thing that I got hung up on was how expensive the parking was.

Friendly staff. However, shower water pressure was very low and either freezing cold or scolding hot. Room above us had an extremely squeaky floor which made it almost impossible to get a good nights rest. Complementary breakfast was good.

This is a fairly plain but clean, comfortable and serviceable hotel/motel which is a decent value. It is well located for things in the El Cerrito area. We stayed for 6 nights while visiting relatives in the area, and it is a good base for roaming the region assuming you have a car. There are not many amenities at the hotel. The only negative was the last evening when it was very windy and there was something rattling outside or above our top floor room (not the window) that made for difficulty sleeping. We will see if management has fixed the problem by the next time we visit.

I love this hotel and have stayed there before. It is beautiful and the rooms are spacious and well appointed. There are just two small negatives that are annoying: (1) They have started to charge for parking which seems ridiculous since they have a huge underground parking lot and the hotel is located in as suburban area where parking is not at a premium; and, (2) They have also started assessing your credit card for $100 to cover any hotel charges made which they said would be credited back in 3-5 days. When my bill arrived, this charge did not appear but it may be because I complained at check-in particularly in view of the credit card I was using - platinum.

The Bay Trail runs along Richmond’s 32-mile shoreline to connect the Marina Bay Parks, including the Ferry Point Loop and a World War II memorial park. Small-town charm permeates historic Point Richmond where restored Victorian buildings house locally owned stores and restaurants and salty bay breezes fill the air. The Richmond-San Rafael Bridge crosses the bay to link the city to Marin County.
