Stayed for over a week. The stay was very comfortable. The Front desk staff is very courteous. Comfortable bed and quiet enough room. Breakfast is quite limited and good enough for a quick snack and does not include anything warm, except for toasted bread. The daily room cleaning isn't consistent and do not replenish used items and might require a... More

I guess some people call it character and vintage..I call that old and creepy. The shining style. I didn't even want to walk barefoot on thr carpet..it feels sticky! No shower pressure at all so get ready to spend 30 min trying to get shampoo out. You will also wait a while for water to turn warm. Stairs screech, floor... More

I stayed for 11 nights in June in their King Suite. The place was very nice. The bed was comfortable and I had the best window breeze one can ask for. The management was friendly and I was even given 1/2 off to see a comedy show on the main level of the hotel. It was a great time. I... More

It is very closed to our customer whose office is ASK building. There is a big supermarket outside the inn. The room is clear and the corner room is the best choice because it has 2 windows. Also the room has a small fridge, a bathtub, free wifi, free breakfast.

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
