I flew in early for business trip in the Bay Area, and wanted a cheap place to stay to visit San Francisco for a day. Cheap hotels are non-existent in San Francisco, so I started to look at Oakland since I could get there via BART from SFO. I was originally looking at Oakland Marriott, but then noticed the Moxy had a Black Friday sale so rooms where only $100 including taxes and fees, so thought it was worth trying. I've stayed at a Moxy elsewhere before, so I sort of know what to expect. They are basically a step above a hostel, but you get your own bathroom, and lobby is the social hub of activity.||I got to the Moxy via BART station from SFO, and was only a few blocks away. Uptown Oakland is a bit desolate, with a few homeless, so maybe not the most tourist friendly location, but I certainly didn't mind it to save money. Once I arrived, the signage clearly points you to the bar as the check-in desk (which is good because that is what confused me the first time using a Moxy). The staff member quickly checked my ID and credit card and assigned my room, and handed over a red ticket to be used towards a specific cocktail from the bar or a non-alcoholic from their mini-market area.||I got to my room, and it's what I expected. A very compact room with bed, a night stand, a flip down desk, mini-fridge and bathroom. Very simple, and playful design and very clean. WiFi was fine. There's a stash closet in the main hallway to grab an extra toiletries. My only complaint is that stash closet is in a metal locker, so anytime anyone used it there was a lot of metal crashing noises as it's being used. A few well placed fabric pads would go a long way.||I used the gym. It was small, but fine for my purposes. It has a Peloton Bike. ||I didn't have a car, but valet parking looked quite expensive. ||Service was generally good. Everyone I spoke to was very nice, and the valet service opened the doors each time I arrived back at the hotel.||Not too much in the area for a tourist. There's a sprinkling of different fast food and restaurant options in the area, and a Korean market nearby too. Getting to downtown Oakland was a reasonable walk away.||Overall, I was satisfied with my stay. I got exactly what I expected from a Moxy, saved a bunch of money compared to staying in San Francisco. I would consider coming back for short stopovers.

Nice hotel right down down Oakland lots of place to walk around but you definitely want to be home by dark. Why is a homeless outside no real place for breakfast close lobby has a nice bar they offer coffee and it’s more of a up trend type of place overall, we had a pleasant stay rooms are a little on the small sidevery close to the subway station
