I've stayed at The Washington Inn four times since March on business trips & I highly recommend it. The staff are all very friendly and quite helpful. The rooms, while small, are all recently renovated and quite clean. Their queen rooms are actually full-size beds, so if you have more than one person you should definitely get a king room.... More

I travel to Oakland about once a month on business, and stay here most of the time. First a word of warning: Downtown Oakland is not a terribly exciting place. It often feels like a ghost town at night, and can feel a little unsafe, but that's downtown Oakland for you. The hotel is right accross the street from the... More

I was a little worry about the hotel because of the past reviews, but it seems since the last review in june 2006 things have change alot. The hotel is clean and very nice looking.... More

I had a similar experience in trying to make the Washington Inn work for my business. After more than 3 phone calls to the hotel I still did not receive a call from the manager. and when I was calling a staff member, there was no answer at the hotel for more than 30 minutes! I started thinking there was... More

I came to Oakland on a business trip with my daughter and husband in tow. Rooms are fairly small and basic but adequete. Our first problem arose when I needed to bath my 11 month old daughter. Not a single bathtub in the entire hotel. But the big problem was when I went down to the computer to work on... More

This hotel is interesting in appearance and clean. The parking is the pits; you can either pay $15 to park in the garage or use the meters across the street, which have a two-hour liimit. The hotel is not in the best part of town either. Our room was small but clean, and the beds were very comfortable. The air... More

The rooms were of a fair size but did not appear to have been cleaned properly between guests. My wife found a tube of "personal lubrication" in our bed that must have been from the previous guest. Truly disgusting !!!! Management took a 'do not care' attitude, so I would not recommend this hotel at all.

Expected a little more after looking at the pics, had several problems, and really not impressed. They made me move rooms several times, AFTER unpacking, TV didn't work, wireless access only works in SOME rooms, and even then doesn't work well, and the breakfast is very minimal and not very good. They don't say it but there are no tubs,... More
