Oakland Area/emeryville Locals

Hi I need help! I just found out that I need to be in Oakland/Emeryville Novemeber 1-3. As I am a student and don't have a lot of money to spend, I am looking for something cheap. I just looked into Motel 6 and they have two that are in the Oakland area but I know there are some prety "hard" areas of Oakland and I just want to know that I am staying in a safe area as I will be a single female. The first hotel is at 1801 Embarcadero and the other one is near Oakland airport. There is also one in Walnut Creek and I do remember that that was a nice area so I am willing to go up there if I need to since I will have a car.

Any areas to absolutly avoid would be helpful since I am still looking at other hotel options.

Also, if you know of any cheap hotels in nicer areas, I would really appreciate the feedback!

RE: Oakland Area/emeryville Locals

There are quite a few hotels in Oakland beside Motel 6. Do you belong to Auto Club? Other that that any travel agency would help you out. Just be carefull. Oakland does have high crime areas--alot. You might want to find some way to lock your door from inside. If necessary be with 2-3 people and don't be afraid to ask someone in the hotel/motel to walk you to your room and check it out. Hope you get this before you leave and have a great trip.
