I stayed here two nights with my best friend on a girls' trip to San Francisco. This is a very nice Best Western situated on the Oakland Estuary. Our room was on the 3rd floor facing the bay and Coast Guard Island with the city of Alameda. I highly recommend requesting an upper floor with a view of the bay.... More

I travel a lot and this hotel is the best in Oakland and Alameda area based on price, quality of room and service provided. Only one negative thing is that there are no good restaurants in surrounding area.

We fly out of Oakland so we can stay in this hotel. It is magnificent. Jay and his front desk staff meet our every need. They are welcoming, knowledgeable and professional. The shuttle staff is great. We look forward to every visit!!!

This location is great for buisness , the staff were very friendly, everyone smiled and made us feel welcomed. I look forward to staying there again. Thank you so much for the great hospitality. I am looking forward to taking my family there the next time that we visit. Perfect for a get away.

I stay up late and get my work done. It is very quite and the staff is extremely helpful/available all day long. Rooms are clean and well vented. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Some work needs to be done about the exercise room, it has rubber smell from the new rubber mats; however, leaving a window open in the... More

We had a morning flight out of Oakland and wanted to book a hotel south of the exit from the freeway over to San Francisco; we've stayed in Berkeley before and hit huge traffic jams. We booked a queen bayside view and it was wonderful: corner room, balcony, conference table, couch, walk in shower, huge tub, it was much nicer... More

After many years in the hospitality industry, I enjoyed the staff and thought the room to be a wonderful surprise. After fighting traffic all day, I asked for a quiet room. The change was made with a smile and the terrace and waterfront view was just what I needed. In fact I asked to be booked there again next week... More

This property was an unexpected surprise! It is obvious that mgmt cares about this property by the cleanliness and attention to detail demonstrated by the staff. Room was wonderfully and functionally furnished and spotless. Breakfast was solid with a decent selection. This will be my new "go to" in the area. Thanks!

We were booked to arrive on a Friday, but we're unable to make it. I looked on line to add an extra day to our trip because we lost a day, and couldn't find a room available. I really didn't want to change hotels during our trip so I called the hotel direct. My call was answered by a man... More

We had an even to attend in Berkeley, Ca but we fecided to stay at this hotel in Oakland. Why Oakland? Hotels in Berkeley are extremely expensive. We were able to get a 4-star hotel in Oakland for considerably less than a 2-star hotel in Berkeley! And the Bayside is the #1 rated hotel in Oakland. CHECK IN: Quick and... More
