We arrived at the hotel on monday, as part of our LA/San Francisco trip. We booked through booking.com, maybe we could have paid less if we'd booked direct. We stayed in room 138. We found proprietors to be extremely helpful, with details about the BART & Buses. We had no issues with the room, it was clean, & very comfortable....

Thank you for your feedback. Many times people hanging around outside leave on their own. If they are not bothering any of the guests we let them leave on their own as in the past we have experienced if we confront them they may cause a scene and disturb all the guests on the property.

Upon arrival, we didn't know what to think about the place. Not really a high standard neighborhood, but that never stopped us before, so we gave it a try, and we are glad we did! This place has it all! a clean spacious room, fridge microwave, coffeemaker, a very clean bathroom, and perfectly working Wifi. what more do you need?...

I should have turned around and looked elsewhere when we got to the front window. The check in desk was glass with a slide for passing the payment. I had to request the clerk get off her phone to serve us. The ad said 28 rooms with microwave and fridge. My husband and I were put up in an ugly...

Dear guest, We do not have a separate night window at our Motel and that is why the office is setup the way it is. I spoke to you on the phone regarding the website you saw that stated we had 28 rooms with microwaves and refrigerators. You told me you went through several links before ultimately booking your room...

This looks like it was once one of those old "motor courts" of the fifties, where every room had it's own carport, some of which have been closed to create extra rooms. The physical condition of the property is pretty good and, it was quiet and the manager and staff were very kind and accommodating.

The hotel is a bit on the old side, but kept well for a budget stay. The staff is friendly. Was late checking in a on a booked night and I was able to call ahead and they made sure to hold my room. I would stay here again.

It was great to stay at Economy Inn in Richmond. I stayed there for close to 30 days and the hotel managers were ever so warm and helpful. The breakfast was an added plus. Would definitely stay there again, if I travel back to that region.

First of all let me apologize for the inconvenience. It is quite obvious that the room that was rented to you had not been finished with the cleaning. I apologize our front desk clerk should have verified that the room was complete before checking you in. We only have 2 housekeepers and the past 6 weeks have been extremely busy...

The management thought I had smuggled a pet into ourcroom because I was seen in the parking lot standing next to a friends teacup chiwowwa. They refused us to extend our stay due to that. The animal never entered our room. This unnerved me totally. Basically this place is a lo end drugden and bordello

Sir we have a strict No Pets allowed policy at this facility which you violated. We have surveillance video of a dog leaving your room at 3am. It is taken to our landscaping to do it's business and then the lady returns with the dog back into your room. We did not deny your checkin, but we did ask you...

The staff let me have an early check in of 8am AND switched my room from smoking to non-smoking free of charge (even though a non-smoking room was more expensive). I appreciate their dedication to their guests!

The rooms were clean, the location was convenient, the reception staff were friendly, and the wifi was free. I would recommend this hotel to other travellers. I had a good night's sleep and didn't hear any traffic noise.
