My summary rating for this property would be 3.5 if I could choose that. I ultimately went with a 3 rather than a 4 due to a couple of items that will likely disqualify a return visit. Details below. Booked a couple of nights at this newish property on the Embarcadaro area of Oakland because it was the only place... More

The room was set at 80 plus degrees on our arrival. It took hours for the room to cool down to a reasonable temperature. Hotel staff were informed but could not address the situation. Disappointing since overall the hotel is very comfortable and the staff very pleasant.

I have stayed here many times over the past dozen years, usually for a week at a time. This property used to be a nice place and the service was excellent. This has degraded over the past few stays to the point I checked out 5 days early and took my business down the street. I was given a room... More

If you are looking for a hotel that makes you feel welcome, this is the hotel to visit. Everyone is so nice! The hotel itself was also very nice. One could tell the people that worked their cared about their guests. They will make you feel like a queen or king for a great price!!

Great staff, two meals a day, comfy rooms and waterfront. What could be better after a days work? Loved that you could actually open the windows in the rooms and enjoy that California weather. I would stay again.

This is a great hotel. It is only a short distance to San Francisco by either Ferry or the Bay Area Rapid Transport trains. The reception staff were very friendly and cooperative and readily answered any questions I had. The room was clean and tidy and quite big enough for my wife and me. Importantly, the Wi Fi was fast... More

We had a waterfront queen suite which had a great view. The room was spacious, comfortable, and we enjoyed our stay. It was very convenient to downtown Oakland. Being next to the freeway, we expected it to be noisy, but our room was quiet.

We stayed here 1 night on an Oakland stopover and it was not a happy experience. The rooms on one side face the highway and we heard traffic noise all night. We also had a bizarre service experience which started when they gave us someone else's room. We then struggled to get them to turn on the wifi service, forcing... More

This hotel is right on the bay. We had a 1 bedroom suite with separate living room/kitchen. The rooms were clean, modern and very comfortable. The breakfast included a good selection of hot and cold items. The evening reception is a nice extra. We stayed here because it was significantly less expensive than hotels in San Francisco.
