We went to Oakland to catch 2 A's games and spend a day in San Fran. The Washington Inn was exactly what we were wanting. (I was worried about our stay because of some of the reviews I read here.) We arrived after 1 am and found directions on the door as to who to contact to get checked in.... More

From the moment we arrived. Wow the staff here was extremely accommodating. Our flight got changed so we asked Carlos if possible we could stay in the room a little longer and spend two hours more in the room. He was extremely friendly and cordial and granted our request. Thank you to Carlos. You truly helped us out a lot....

The Washington is a throw-back historic hotel from days gone with a convenient location if you are attending an event at the Oakland Convention Center, or, for easy access to the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) to include about a 20 min. ride to San Fran. We had a suite with a 2d room w/kitchen which was useful as we... More

The room was simple but ok. Bathroom looked clean. Free breakfast every morning in the lobby. The BART station is only a five minutes walk (BART to San Francisco takes about 20 minutes). There is a supermarket next to the hotel. And on Broadway there are free shuttle busses (can take you to Jack London Square Amtrak station).

Newly refurbished historic hotel. One block from the BART. Met our needs perfectly. Friendly staff. Free breakfast Ok but we like to eat out. Had a suite at a great rate. A bargain in the Bay Area. Across from Convention Center so convenient if you have a meeting there.

Hesitated on booking after reading inconsistent reviews, but our accommodations and experience were terrific. We stayed during the week, and it was nice and quiet. Got the 2 room king suite on the 4th floor for $141/night, that's including tax! Additional $15/day for parking at the convention center. Great location - 2 blocks to BART. Downside - TV's are ancient,... More

The Washington Inn is located in Old Town Oakland. It is right off the BART line on 12th St. Excellent dining options, including several small ethnic restaurants, are close by on Clay Street. The free continental breakfast provided was also nice. My room was extremely clean. It had a good view of Old Town architecture. The service was good and... More

Staying in Oakland on business and I selected this hotel because from the website and the description on Hotels.com, this looked like a relatively nice place. There is a 'vintage' feel to this hotel but I would NOT call it charming or a "luxury boutique hotel" as it is self described. I actually would NOT use the words luxury or... More

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
