Pleaseant location but be sure to ask for waterview room to avoid traffic noise from the freeway. Convenient to a lot of places around Oakland. Room was clean and pleasant. Nice little walkway along the waterside of hotel.

Staff was very helpful and polite but they are at a disadvantage. The property is in bad shape with worn out dirty carpets and bad smells near the elevator off the lobby. Would rate this a one or two star hotel at this point.

The property location and waterfront view are great. The hotel lobby is beautiful but that's where the luxuries end. The rooms are spacious, but the bed is well beyond its lifespan. The mattress is old, uncomfortable and the springs cringe with each movement. The pillows are thin and flimsy, and the bedding is also thin and cheap. Worst nights sleep... More

Super happy with this hotel. Very new and clean. The waterfront is nice to look at. The hotel is only about a mile from the ferry terminal for an easy trip into the city. You will need to drive to the ferry but parking is free. The ferry area is really being revitalized with lots of eateries. On the weekdays... More

I stayed overnight on business and needed a hotel on the east side of the Bay Bridge. The Homewood Suites property in Alameda is located on the water on a small inlet off the San Francisco Bay. It is an excellent hotel and the staff was warm and gracious. They made me feel at home as soon as I arrived,... More

I was pretty satisfied staying here although it wasn't a walkable distance from my work. There were many other closer hotels to my work but in the end, this place worked out just fine. It overlooked the marina and if you have that side of the hotel, then it would be even nicer.

I am in the East Bay on an extended project, and stayed at many of the other hotels during that time. Once I stayed here, there was no reason to look for another hotel. Friendly staff hearty full breakfast, the reception at night is relaxing, and this location is only about 2 miles from Jack London Square. Cant beat it... More

For the area, I felt the stay was a bit overpriced and I had a group rate. I would splurge and get the "water" view, "city" view if of the freeway. Would give it poor rating as far as walking anywhere, as ti is mostly an industrial area. There was only a Starbucks and Subway within walking distance. The hotel... More
