Local from Berkeley, California

America's Best Value Inn is pretty well named. This three-level motel is located one block from Lake Merritt in Oakland. It's about a 15-minute walk from Lake Merritt BART station, which you wouldn't necessarily want to do alone at night but during the daytime, this is a great location. Lake Merritt is a beautiful gem nestling up against downtown Oakland. It's a beautiful place for a walk or a picnic to watch the birds frolicking in the water. They're also fun restaurants and shops at the far end of the lake. Also just a stones throw away from the motel is the Oakland Museum of art and Laney College.
The rooms at the lodge are no-frills. The lampshade in my room was somewhat damaged but I didn't find that to be the end of the world. The folks at the desk or no nonsense but get the job done.

First to Review

I thought this inn had a great location considering how close it is to Lake Merritt (only one block away), the Bart station (train) and the many restaurants, bars and cafes around the lake, including La Parisienne, Arizmendi Bakery and the Fortune Cookie Factory in Chinatown.
There aren't very many lodging options in Oakland, so this hotel is a good value for what they offer, a safe and clean space where to spend the night. They also give you a free continental breakfast in the morning and free parking, which is very convenient since it is a busy part of town and parking is not easy to find.
Late at night the neighborhood is a bit colorful, but not too bad. The staff at the Front Desk was nice and prompt and always answered all of my questions.
