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...

At first, I thought it was great. Parking was convenient, the checkin was easy and pleasant and, the room was clean. The pool area is also good looking and was a nice break for your daughter. The wifi was slow but it worked. The bathroom was lack luster but functional. It could have used a fan and had a mysterious... More

We wanted to visit family in Alameda and go into SF and walk to coffee in the morning. There's at least two excellent coffee spots within walking distance, and you can take the Ferry or a free shuttle to the BART. It took us just over an hour to get from Golden Gate Park to our hotel during rush hour... More

We stayed in Oakland a few days before heading to Point Reyes. I loved staying at the inn at Jack London Square. The courtyard is very comfortable and feels like a villa somewhere other than an urban center. You ca walk to the Harbor. We happened to be there for the monthly Harbor Walk with music, artists, clothing and jewelry... More

Living out of the area, we decided to stay local for a concert we had that night at Yoshi's. This hotel is perfectly located, 2 blocks (walking time approx 5 minutes, casual pace) from Jack London Square. We were able to explore Jack London Square, had dinner and walked to Yoshi's for the concert. The hotel is nice. Definitely 3... More

We had an early morning flight out the next day and wanted a hotel close by to Oakland Airport but with an attraction. Situated right on the water and view of boats coming in and out fit the bill perfectly. We had no reservations and right from the valet to the front desk desk we were greeted enthusiastically and warmly.... More

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
