Dear kevdudechan, Great review and thank you. We love questions and we encourage them. There is so much to know about Oakland and all the exciting restaurants and events that our team works hard to keep abreast of everything. If they don't know something, we can always ask Mr. Google. We look forward to having you return.

Dear Kevin, Here's the GREAT thing. We're replacing the carpet as we speak and on your next visit each and every room will have new carpeting. We're been battling this issue for a few months now and your comments have been really helpful in getting funds together to replace our carpets. Thank you.
