The Pros.... The staff is very friendly and check in was a breeze. The parking is convenient at a garage attached to the hotel. The daily rate is $18 however. We got a room on the second floor with two queen beds and it was very clean, updated, a no-frills kind of room but very cozy and perfect for our... More

I arrived and was quite scared and confronted by all the homelessness and poverty I had seen only a street away. You have a street over to the waters edge that is beautiful and then the streets leading all the way uo to the Bart train line is poverty and homelessness. It was a little too unceasing for me to...

Front desk personnel very responsive to a third party booking issue that required attention. They definitely owned the problem instead of blaming the other guy. Parking was convenient and secure. Our stay was short and not intended to be a mini-vacation but we did have a chance to walk to the Square and look around a bit. We will definitely... More

The staff was exceptionally helpful. Parking in San Francisco/Oakland is at a premium and expensive. However, the Inn provided parking gratis. Very convenient to ferries to the city, the Bart, and Oakland waterfront. Very pleased with value for the dollar. All amenities are close at hand and all within walking distance.

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...
