This hotel is amazing it is everything that you want and more. Do yourself a favor and get a bay side room with the sunken tub, AMAZING! The parking is a nighmare so if you plan to be out late be prepared to deal with the headache. The other issue I had was check-out. Now my problems were due to... More

Emmett at the front desk and the other workers did an amazing job going above and beyond when my wife lost her phone, very impressive services going beyond what could be expected. Very nice and clean room, easy to check in and out, great view

I arrived at Best Western Bayside, never having visited Oakland before. A gracious lady named Symone greeted me at the front desk. She was pleasant, professional, well-informed, and helpful. I hope that the other staff I meet during my stay will rise to her level of competence.

Staff members Symone and Jay went out of their way to be of service. Jay was instrumental in accommodating us in staying here. Symone helped us in getting packages prepared to mail by printing out the appropiate address labels and taping the packages for us. They did all of this, while waiting on other travelers. Job well done.

Had a nice room, with balcony overlooking the harbor just south of Jack London Square. Sailboats, kayaks, and more. Great sunset. Price was also very reasonable for the area. Included a shuttle to and from the San Francisco ferry landing.

This hotel was very nice.. Clean, rooms spacious, and pretty quiet.. Symone at the front desk was very polite, kind, and helpful. The only drawback was the parking.. In Oakland you don't want to be parking far away...

This is a terrific hotel at a reasonable price. Huge room. Free hi-if and breakfast. Accommodating staff, clean appearance, view of the bay and boating. Plenty of parking. Just off the freeway, but really quiet. Highly recommended by this world traveler. Happy trails...

Dear John, Thank you for your Great Review. We're very glad you enjoyed your time with us and hope to see you again soon. Also good to hear that you enjoyed Quinn's Lighthouse.
