First, why stay here? Location and economy without sacrificing too much quality. We were here to see Bryan Ferry perform at the Fox Theatre (wow! see my review) and eat at Duende (wow! see my review) with some friends. This hotel feels like a landmark. Old style with lots of wood, high ceiling, an old mahogany bar and a stained-glass... More

My typing may seem shaky due to the rock band playing at the pub across the parking lot. So loud in fact, I can barely hear my television (no exaggeration). It is midnight and they just stopped. Room is very average, hotel staff friendly enough but elevator and the rest is pretty sketchy. The Marriott is across the street for... More

Our 7-day stay by my wife and I and another couple were wonderful. Desk personnel were over the top courteous and pleasant, the rooms were clean and well managed, the food served during breakfast were more than expected and tasty. We look forward to visiting again and this time not necessarily for business.

There are only a few places to stay in the center of Oakland and we decided to try the Washington Inn which is across the street from the Oakland Convention Center. It is in the downtown district is a hotel from the early 1900's. It is four stories and has the charm of the bygone era. You walk into the... More

I decided to stay at The Washington Inn because it looked cute, with good linens and it was an independent hotel for a decent price. The website also made it look nice. This was probably my worst experience staying in a hotel! Inside the room were motion sensor lights with no off switch. Every time I moved when I was... More

The hotel is a 101 year old building, it's clean, well maintained and the staff was nice to talk with. I had a conference at the Marriott so I was gone most of the time however when in the room, I was able to open my window and listen to the city. The room was clean and updated. Had a... More

My room overlooked Washington Street which is very noisy until after 2AM due to the club next door. Windows are old so it's very noisy. While being kept up from the noise I couldn't even get relief from watching tv because the cable was horrific. The tv got only a few channels and the reception was very fuzzy.

This place is a gem set in old Oakland down the street from Smart & Final across from the imposing Oakland Convention Center and hotel. Down the way from my favorite Oakland Restaurant 817 run by my neighbors Scott and Emily. The food at 817 is always a treat and the coffee drinks are legendary. On Farmers' Market Day you... More

Stayed at this hotel years ago and loved it. It needs a facelift and that's too bad because it has great potential. Great location and great bones as a small "boutique" hotel but needs major work in the common areas. Carpet is dirty, walls need paint and get on the elevator at your own risk. The staff was nice enough,... More
