Clean, quiet, comfortable - all the bells and whistles - plus the tranquil setting on the Oakland Estuary is a surprisingly lovely and peaceful place to have your morning coffee and breakfast and to begin your day. Runners, walkers, cyclers and even ducks enjoy the water-side trail that meanders along the estuary.

My husband and I traditionally have not considered Best Western as a first choice, but in the last couple of years we decided to try Best Western Plus or Premier hotels in New York City, Canada (Calgary), and California (Capitola and Oakland) because of excellent Trip Advisor reviews. In each case we have been impressed with the quality of the... More

Some people may not think a Best Western hotel rates up there with top-named hotel chains for business travellers. I have to disagree. The waterfront rooms have patios with chairs and a table and overlook the estuary and walking trail. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and there is both a microwave and fridge. The staff are incredibly friendly... More

It had been many years since I'd stayed in a Best Western. I'm not sure if they've all gotten better, or if the "Plus" made the difference, but this hotel was a very pleasant surprise. My three middle-aged brothers and I had to fly across country on short notice for a funeral, and I wanted to get a hotel along... More

With family in the San Francisco Bay area we've been looking for a good place to stay and we've FOUND IT. This hotel has exceptional access to the I-880 and with it's complimentary shuttle service to and from the Lake Merritt Bart station it's definitely the place to stay. The property itself is one of the top Best Western's we've... More

Today, Boyfriend and I took the Amtrak from LA to Oakland. This hotel is less than two miles from the Jack London Square Amtrak station. We decided earlier on that even if we had planned to watch a concert in SF and do a little bit of sight seeing, we would book a room near the Amtrak station and just... More

I normally don't stay at chain hotels, but chose this one because of the high ratings it has been given on various booking sites. The large rooms and amenities make it a pleasant place to stay and a tremendous value for the price.,

This is a wonderful choice in Oakland, and I am glad to have done some research here on TripAdvisor. The hotel is modern, clean, and equipped with little amenities that make a travelers life a little easier--i.e. plenty of coffee everywhere! The only negative was the unpleasant experience I had during check-in at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, 12/10/14. I asked... More

My room was large, airy and in pristine condition. The balcony view of the Oakland estuary and wildlife was a treat. Large, luxurious bathroom, lighted magnifying mirror, spa robe and slippers in the closet, a free shuttle to my training downtown. Perfect!

We stayed for 6 nights in a very spacious corner ground floor room with king bed and jacuzzi tub. Nice view of the waterfront and the bed was very comfortable. A daily hot/cold continental breakfast is available with a variety of fruit also available throughout the day to hotel guests. The staff are all very approachable and professional to deal... More
