Needed a hotel with easy access to Alameda and the local Alameda hotels were booked. I decided on the Inn at Jack London Square because of the ease of access to Alameda. Nice hotel but nothing special. Room was comfortable and clean. A bit noisy because of trains but not too bad. Good value. Great BBQ place nearby.

Inn at Jack London Square was a pleasant surprise. From the exterior, it doesn't look like much. Rather like an old time Motor Inn. A small but nicely decorated lobby with very pleasant accommodating staff awaited the check-in process. A funky elevator hidden behind a door takes you to the second floor and here is where the surprise awaits. A... More

This hotel was located 9 blocks from the Bart station and 3 blocks from the Marina. The rooms were nice and the bed was very comfortable. I could hear the trains but they weren't bad. I had no problem sleeping through them. The walk from Bart was clean with pretty shops and hotels on the way. Oakland has a free... More

Our trip was to San Francisco, but we stayed here because it was cheaper and conveniently located. Staff was very friendly, rooms were clean and adequate. I liked the secure parking even though we had to pay for it. Good restaurants are nearby and so is the freeway to S.F. The only drawback for us were the trains, which can... More

The Inn was a great place to stay for a weekend...walking distance to Jack London Square, good restaurants, Farmer's Market, etc...There was a nice pool area, rooms were clean, staff was friendly. Buttercup restaurant next door and Oakland Grill down the street had great breakfasts. Definitely stay here again on my next visit to Oakland.

Oakland is a semi dodgy area slowly gentrifying. This hotel had a great outside pool area which served us well on the two 30 degree days we had. All rooms were arranged in motel style square around the pool with none on street level so a bit of outside walking to get to far side rooms.It has a small clean... More

this hotel is absolutely fine. yup it is a bit of a motel rather than hotel, but the rooms are cleaner, and the price cannot be beat. If you don't need to stay in San Francisco, Oakland is much better value. You're right by Yoshi's, and there are a few cool bars within a block or 2. I especially love... More

Great service and location in Oakland. The staff is willing to go the extra mile to help with anything you may need. This is the best hotel in the Jack London Square area and is convenient to just about anything you could want to do in the Bay area. Do not confuse this one with the Jack London Inn which... More

The Inn at Jack London Square is a mixed bag. It was the best value that we could find in the area and it was close to the attractions in Jack London Square. The neighborhood is a mix of commercial (produce warehouses abound) and Jack London Square shops, restaurants and attractions. My wife and I stayed here because it is... More

Clean rooms, secure, parking garage, friendly staff. Furniture was REALLY dated - I think 60's Danish Modern, but who cares everything in good condition. Just a few blocks from Jack London Square - DO NOT CONFUSE WITH JACK LONDON INN - very close -.
