The staff at the hotel was extremely friendly and efficient. There were about 5-6 people checking in at once, so someone came up to help out and get people checked-in. I waited maybe 5 minutes max. The rooms are very roomy and include a kitchen. I was on the parking lot side of the hotel, so I heard a car... More

This hotel is a great alternative to paying the high prices and parking fees for hotels in San Francisco. The hotel was convenient, staff was friendly, great amenities. We had a bay view and were very pleased with our decision to stay here. Although the area was not the greatest, we had no problems during our stay.

I stayed at the Homewood Oakland-Waterfront in mid-August and it was a nice place. Well kept, nice landscaping, nice accommodations. It was nice to have breakfast each morning, although the food is somewhat pedestrian and a little odd sometimes (pre-cooked omelettes from frozen?). Coffee was not the best but palatable with the flavoured creamers - hey, I'm a coffee snob!... More

25min from San Francisco by Bart or car, yet feel like a quiet vacation on the water. Lovely break from urban noise. The staff are helpful and kind. The waterfront is lovely...especially wonderful water fowl!

I love EVERYTHING about this Homewood Suites... The staff is wonderful and very pleasant, the food is great, and the bed is extremely comfortable. I come to this Homewood about twice a week for business... It's nice to know that when I'm away from home, I'm treated like I'm home here... I wouldn't and won't chose anywhere else to say.

Stayed here on business in early September 2013 as my typical Hilton locations were already booked up or had prices outside of my expense budget for this trip. I was pleasantly surprised with the location. Check-in was smooth and friendly. Accomodations were nice though a bit dated. Great recommendation for a dinner restaurant. :)

We had a one night reservation. We chose this hotel because it was a mile from the Oakland ferry terminal, and because the rooms had the choice of a suite. We have an 18 month old and it is very convenient to have a bedroom that has a door. The room was very nice. It was very clean and very... More

My son is staying her for work (extended stay). I came to visit for the Labor Day weekend and was pleased to find out the hotel was pet friendly. Also, the breakfasts were wonderful and the view is beautiful!

Great hotel and staff. Very friendly with easy shuttle to BART to get to San Fran in minutes. The evening meal was great! Free beer and wine. Only down side is that there is not much within walking distance although the shuttle will take you lots of places.

Not updated hotel in not a very good area of town. Staff was very kind. The view was good. Dangerous part of town. We stayed there because it was close to our children. Convienent for them to pick us up.
