No, no, no! I can NOT with any good consciousness recommend this listing to anyone! Although this host is quick to correspond, from the very first contact there were issues; First, I was asked by host to pay for one of the two nights in CASH because she accidentally used the wrong booking dates, then I was told the room wasn't ready because the bed needed to be made and I was asked to come 5 HOURS LATER from when I first made contact to say I was already in the area. When I arrived, the outside of the house had packages that looked like they were delivered and left out there for weeks. Once inside, there were at least 20 pairs of shoes haphazardly kicked off right in front of the door and stairs, creating a safety issue to access the upstairs. The living room couches were practically unusable from all the boxes, shoes, etc. on them. Surprisingly, I was asked to remove my shoes while in the house. I came to suspect this was probably a cultural issue more so then a cleanliness one. Then I was shown the kitchen I could use, but there was NO WAY I would be using this area as it was comply filthy. The counter tops were full from all the dirty cooking items; plates and bowls (full of leftover food), utensils, etc. everywhere, including the sink. I was then asked to wait while the bed was made. 15 minutes later, I was told the room was ready and I proceeded up the dirty carpeted stairs. The room was NOT the one listed, it was a basic room but NOT clean. There was a full wastebasket from the previous guest (gross), and there was so much dust on the blinds I started to have an allergy attack right away. I wasn't shown the bathroom, and had to find it on my own. It was disgusting, as though it hadn't been cleaned for a good deal of time. The shower, toilet, & sink were dirty; the counter top was filled with junk, including an empty toothpaste box! Who doesn't have time to throw away an empty box? I was not provided with a towel and had to wait TWO hours to get one after requesting it. My sleep was interrupted by noises & voices at all hours of the night, and from the very uncomfortable bed for both nights. And the final kicker, was then I received a txt message first thing in the morning (7am) of my final day (after not sleeping for two days), asking when I was checking out. When I went out to my car that was parked right in front of the host’s house, I found it was VANDALIZED! It was keyed down the passenger side! So do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for lodging.
It was a nice place to stay.
Was okay. Friendly person. The room is indeed comfortable.
Excellent host! She was very accommodating. I stayed there for a week and a half, it was a very pleasant neighborhood. Highly recommended!
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Nice house, nice people
I stayed at Miya's for three nights while on a work trip to Fremont. Miya was incredibly prompt with her communication before my stay and was flexible about my arrival time too. I only saw (or even heard!) her once - when she received me and handed the key & a password for the wifi upon my arrival.
Safe area, centrally located (5-7 min walk from the BART stop), quiet room, comfy enough bed and a hot shower. Perfect for a short trip when you need a place to crash. I was pretty much out from morning till evening. There is a bed and a night desk in the room. However, if you need to do any work there is a Starbucks 10-15 minute walk away on Civic Center Street.
The place is 15-20 minute walk from Lake Elizabeth which is great for a morning run (or to head there to enjoy your breakfast which you can grab from the Starbucks on the way). There is also a Whole Foods (about a 20-25 min walk).
Thanks, Miya : )
Miya was able to accommodate me after I sent a request the day of the booking, and was kind enough to wait for me even though I arrived at 9:45pm
Room is exactly as pictured, quiet neighborhood, and you should be able to get your own parking space. If not, there is street parking available.
Miya is a great host -- courteous and helpful. Highly recommended.
