This place was such a disappointment! I booked a Deluxe room with a courtyard view. The courtyard was in shambles, with piles of dirt and tarps all blocked off, pool closed too, no hot tub either. The room was the absolute smallest I have stayed in in any local hotel. The bathroom was so tiny you had to step into... More

I can only speak for booking and reservations department, as I did not get a chance to actually stay the night. Rebecca H. was more than helpful in assisting us with both the booking, and cancelation. She even helped us find our way around town. Thanks you. The curtesy and kindness will be remembered.

Real good location in a cool area in Oakland. Near bars, restaurants, coffee shops and the developing waterfront. The property seems to be undergoing a major renovation and really needs it. Big comfort beds help a lot,. Free wifi. Friendly front desk staff who are helpful. There is a train nearby that runs all day and night and is incredibly... More

Over priced, bed not that great, paper thin walls, under done, underwhelmed. We chose this place as we wanted to be near the bay views and we enjoy Jack London Square. The website views are misleading. The room was cheap looking, cheaply furnished, cheap bath products, shabby carpeting, considering the high price we were being charged and the location. When...

I stayed here while attending a conference at the nearby Oakland Convention Center and it was a good choice. Room was clean, staff was friendly and helpful. I did have friends walk me back from the City Center after dark, as the area in between can be sketchy. Big bonus is Beer Revolution, directly across the street, where there are... More

Thanks to reviews on Trip Advisor, we picked this hotel as we wanted to be near the Amtrak station. We are SO GLAD WE DID. It is 4-5 short blocks from the station, but you don't hear the trains. All the restaurants and shops of Jack London Square are within a few blocks. We had a 3rd floor room facing... More

Pros: The location is wonderful, right next to Jack London Square. The area seems safe. Cons: The main elevator does not work. The other elevator is the slowest one I have been in. The room was not clean. There is no central air conditioning/heating. The restroom was dirty looking. One hears random flushing sounds. The TV remote control was sticky.

After staying in San Francisco, we were looking for a safe, quiet and clean hotel for a last night before heading out on the Amtrak. We arrived and the first thing that hit us was the smell of the bedroom. So fresh. I say this after staying somewhere less than salubrious in the nights before :) The hotel was well... More

After I ran screaming from the Jack London Inn which is right ON TOP of the railroad tracks and rated the 2nd dirtiest hotel in America, I checked in to the Inn at JLS. Worlds apart. Clean, updated, quiet. I checked in on Christmas day and stayed for 3 days. In the room were two comfortable queen beds with fresh... More
