Everything was fine. The room was very spacious and nice. The only real complaint I had was that the room smelled from cleaning products (even though they say they are "green") and the smell bothered me. After having the fan on for hours, I had some relief but not completely. I suggested to them that they use fragrance free products.... More

This is a very nice place to stay in Oakland, CA. It is located on the Oakland Esutary and if you have a room facing the water it is very relaxing and quiet. The staff are all very courteous and helpful. Rooms are spacious and well appointed.

Excellent 3 day stay! Less than 10 minutes to downtown Oakland, less than 30 to San Fran. Large room, comfy beds, amazing bathroom with garden tub and WC. Very good breakfast with a lovely view of the bay. The highway side is noisy, so request a bay view. Convenient, comfortable, and a good value overall!

Very nice experience. Did not think about how I was going to get to the hotel after I dropped off my rental car, and they came out to pick me up within 30 minutes. No extra charge! (as far as I know). They checked me in quickly and professionally. When I arrived in the room I expected a decent room... More

We hope you didn't work too hard and get carried away. You're the first to say they worked into the night, most stop, have a... More

Enjoyed our stay unfortunately it was only for one night. The Hotel staff was friendly and nice, the room was large with a view, and they offer shuttle service to the ferry that took us to San Francisco, so there was no fighting traffic or paying high parking fees. Will be extending our stay next trip to the Bay.

Dear Cynthia E, Thank you for your very nice comment. We get that a lot. People keep saying we're an excellent option to paying high prices for San Francisco Hotels and Parking. We're only a BART ride away to so many sights and businesses in the Bay Area. And truth be told, our rooms are actually closest to the water... More

Stayed here one night for business in Oakland and was pleasantly surprised by all aspects of the hotel. The hotel uses its mid-century style to good advantage, with a lobby facing the water. Room was spacious and comfortable, with good amenities. Breakfast (again, facing the water) had good variety, including healthy options (kiiwi fruit!). Fitness center was typical. Staff were...

We created a problem with our reservation. It was not the fault of Best Western. The day before our stay we realized we had a problem and called the Bayside Hotel. Symone answered our call and took care of our issue efficiently and with great patience and charm. On the day of our stay she was at the desk and... More

We recently stayed at the hotel above and was pleasantly surprised. When we arrived, we were treated like royalty by our receptionist, Symone. She continued to assist us during our stay always with a welcoming smile and cheerful attitude. The room was very relaxing and quiet. We definitely recommend staying here. We hopefully be back soon.

Nice large room with a sitting area, nice TV, king rooms have a water view. Too bad there was a nasty smell in the room, and the breakfast, while about what one would expect in quality, was hard to deal with because of the layout of the service area, also seating was totally inadequate for any quantity of people.........too bad.
