We stayed for two nights and we're happy at the hotel. The complimentary continental breakfast gave us a good start on our day. The hotel had super friendly staff, good location close the BART station and a few nice restaurants and cool bars. Don't miss Miss Ollie's just around the corner! The building itself is old, but the rooms were... More

All hotels were booked in SF because of a JP Morgan convention or something, so I ended up staying here for a business trip. As others have said, this is an older property. If you are looking for a luxury hotel with a bunch of amenities, look elsewhere. The rooms are pretty small, but not too small. The sink was... More

Front desk guy at night was obviously having a hard time caring. had to have the room key fixed twice. the tv broken. no AC. there was a big party (wedding?) downstairs, complete with DJ and yelling drunks on the street. curtains do not block out the streetlights completely. the door doesnt block out completely the light from the hallway....

There's a great pub next door thar brews their own really tasty beer, so that was nice too. Walking distance from China Town and a clean and safe neighborhood. I always felt save also at... More

The Washington Inn is very convenient place to stay. It's around corner from Oakland bart station and all hip restaurants and bars are around. So if you are looking for handy place to stay and night out, this is your place. Also staffs are very friendly and helpful. Especially, the manager, Carols is an extremely nice guy. He knows what...

Major points for the location of this hotel. It is 2 blocks from The 12th Street Bart Station, and the neighborhood is convenient to restaurants, a Chase Bank and a Walgreens (I forgot my toothpaste). The room was small, but since I was here for one night, not a negative. The room was clean, but the bathroom smelled like bleach.... More

Older building which has been renovated; across the street from Convention Center and Marriott City Center. Grocery store on corner and multiple restaurants in walking distance. Neighborhood gets sketchy pretty quickly; passed a lady who was with police one block away after window broken out of car and contents stolen. Hotel has no on-sight parking, but can park across the... More

This is an old hotel, but it could be very charming. That being said, the problems clearly outweigh the charm it could have. if you have a vehicle the parking situation is ridiculous. You have to park in the Marriot parking garage across the street. When you want to get out of the garage, they give you a pass that... More
