If the fridge or microwave is important to you than Cookerly and specifically request those items. Not every room in this Motel 6 has those amenities. In fact very few rooms have those and they are only the ones that are facing the water so they get booked up very quickly. This location is home to many construction workers who check in on Sunday work all week and then leave to go to their other homes for the weekend.
The back of the motel is right on the water and faces a fishing pier. It's an interesting and unusual area but it's not geared toward pedestrian traffic, so take advantage of the free parking and bring your own wheels. The rooms are exactly like other Motel 6s. You can't beat the price!

First to Review

If you are driving and trying to stay on budget, this must be the best location of a Motel 6 you could find in all of Northern California. It is right off Highway 880 and as close to the water of the Bay as it could be. If you stay here, ask for a room facing the water and enjoy the view! There's a lovely fishing pier right behind the hotel and a trail that goes along the water and the marina.
They provide the usual free parking and free coffee in the lobby. There is still a fee for wi-fi.
The place seemed recently remodeled and everything was clean. Also, the staff was very helpful, so overall this is a decent place to stay at.
Take advantage of being in Oakland and visit Fairyland with the younger ones in your family, or head to a Regional Park up on the hills.
