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

I visit the SF Bay Area 3-4 times per year. When I conduct business in the East Bay, I stay at this Homewood Suites. GREAT breakfasts AND dinners, and free parking.

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.

Homewood Suites is a great spot right on the Bay and next to the ferry and a complimentary shuttle to the BART. Very friendly staff and nice breakfast daily. Room was comfortable (we chose a room facing the bay) and we were very pleased! Our third time coming back!

This hotel is just 2 miles from Oakland's city center. While a bit off the beaten path, the available shuttle service to downtown or BART (up to two miles) was usually all that was needed to get around. There were a couple of mornings where the number of people wanting to ride the shuttle were too much for the 15... More
