I have stayed at this hotel at least six times now, and it is consistent with the friendly staff and clean rooms. You can walk to Yoshi's-Oakland, Lungamare Restaurant and the ferry to take you over to San Francisco. There is a great beer garden across the street, too. The wifi is free. There is a beautiful pool and seating... More

The staff were very nice and helpful, and the parking was easy (free parking under hotel was great). However, our room and the hotel over-all was just not as high-quality as what you'd expect for the price. Our room, no. 237, was average and clean, but it was things like the damaged bathroom door and sink fixtures that weren't installed... More

We stayed here a week. Found it very clean, comfortable and secure. The front desk was extremely helpful. Parking is easy. Rooms appear to be newly redone and the bathrooms had two sinks (helpful for time management!) The equipment in the workout room is a bit of a mashup but serviceable. Outstanding breakfast joints right nearby (check out Oalkland Grill!)... More

The staff was very nice, but the smell of the rooms was too much for me. I was having an allergic reaction all night. I stayed in 5 hotels that week and none had the smell that this one did. If you like perfume, you will be OK. Also note that parking is 18 dollars, so this place was not... More

This hotel is located on lower Broadway in Oakland just one block from Jack London Square. The location is perfect if you are visiting attractions in the area. The free city Broadway shuttle bus stops in front of the hotel and it is within walking distance of restaurants and attractions in the lower Broadway area. The Amtrak station is about... More

The hotel as a whole was clean, nice and quiet and I would say here again except they billed me twice for a day I wasn't there; they billed me for the parking although I paid cash and they billed me for more than the room was and then I had to haggle with Rebecca because she insisted I was...

The courtyard area and pool were closed and we weren't told at the time we booked. This is a big reason we choose The Inn at Jack London Square when we visit Oakland. We would have booked elsewhere if we knew the courtyard and pool would not be accessible. The staff knew this, which I'm sure is why wewere not... More

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
