I was subjected to a night in this hotel by the company that I work for, if it were not for certain circumstances I would have not even stayed one night. The hotel is old and even though it might have been updated, it is still of very low quality. The rooms have an old musty smell that the staff... More

Check in was went well and the front desk staff had several good recommendations for dinner since this was my first stay in Oakland. The room was okay carpet looked new but the bathroom needed some updating. Bed was comfortable and amenities standard. I had a city view room that faced the train tracks a block away so sleep was...

Phoned and got a last minute reservation (1.5 hours before arrival) for $139 +tax (better than internet rate) on a Friday nite. Quick friendly check-in. It's Oakland not Hawaii. It's an "Inn" not a resort. So relax and don't expect much. You're paying for the location at Jack London Square (near the waterfront). Lot's of nightlife around. Lot's of eateries.... More

I chose this hotel because it was close to the train station and relatively cheap for the area. It's fairly clean, but the furnishings and the general atmosphere are kind of run down and cheap. I was only here long enough to sleep and shower. For that it was fine. I don't think I'd want to spend any more time... More

This is a quaint, older hotel with modest updates, and very friendly service. Usually service is the same everywhere (a forced smile and you're on your way). Not so here. The front desk girl sweetly gave my group dinner recommendations which turned out to be very helpful. Her sincerity really touched me, and I did not expect to find that... More

The location is great for those wanting to visit San Francisco. It is close enough to the12th st Bart station to walk. Its then 2 stops to the Embarcadero. It is really close to the Ferry at the square that goes over to San Francisco. You can easily walk to the Amtrak station. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There... More

When we walked into the Inn we were greeted by the friendliest person, Barbara. She helped us get registered, get acclimated to the hotel and area, and sent us to a great restaurant at the Square. We met with equal friendliness and helpfulness from housekeeping and others in the hotel. We ended up staying in this hotel again on our... More

Great location!! We booked a show at Yoshi's and this was within walking distance, which was great for us. The room was comfortable with a great bed. Bathroom was OK but tub drain stopper had seen better days --- looked moldy and edges looked like a dog chewed it. Needless to say, we took showers! Parking was great as it... More

I stayed here recently with 3 other friends from England and it was nothing short of first class. The service industry in the US is generally pretty great, but the staff here stood head and shoulders above anywhere else we previously stayed in during our tour of the West Coast - Especially Rebecca & Barbara! : ) We actually loved...
