We have stayed here a couple times and really like it all. Reasonable price, nice rooms and really great location. It's really close to hip night life and all kinds of food spots. There is also a free shuttle bus that runs up and down Broadway that saves money and parking.

The Inn was very nice. My only complaints were that I didn't do enough research on the proximity to the trains - which are very loud. Thankfully we were all very tired and once asleep didn't notice the horns. Also, I didn't discover until we got there that there is no continental breakfast but rather a restaurant next store. For...

Three real positives---great location, great restaurant on premises and the staff was great. With that said, train nose is like the scene in my Cousin Vinny with horns throughout the night. Room was fine though the "hot" water wasn't really that hot. The scent in the room was that "motel" smell....I was eager to leave but overall was satisfied with... More

I loved this place. Clean comfortable rooms and in a good area of Oakland (if you know what I mean...) enclosed garage parking. A small local diner on property and you can walk to a lot of activities right from the hotel. You never know what you'll get at a local hotel without a national brand name....this place was a...

Booked due to reasonable price and proximity to my work appointment. Was surprised at the homey yet efficient , high quality attention of staff. Room was clean, reasonably spacious, quiet and in good repair, facing the pool. (Reminds me of old-fashioned small family owned hotels in the midwest and south, but bigger.) Has a place to print your business documents... More

The room was quite clean but noise was bad. The train, dump trucks, music...... everything, could be heard through the very thin walls. Otherwise I was happy. Don't confuse with the Jack London Inn. Went there by mistake first and thought I was gonna be murdered or robbed.

The place looks awesome inside! I would strongly suggest that you order a room that faces inside where the pool is located. As soon as you walk in, you're greeted by friendly and efficient desk clerks (Evelyn was the one I dealt with) who instantly make your stay a good one. The rooms are modern, clean, comfortable, and spacious. The... More

We selected this hotel for our "Girl's Getaway" because we were going to a concert at the Fox Theater (Mayer Hawthorne) and wanted to stay somewhere close. We didn't know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Now this isn't one of those new modern hotels but it was clean & comfortable. We had 2 queen beds, a flat screen... More

Whenever I'm in Oakland I stay here. The parking is an extra $15 / night, but it is secured. There is a terrific coffee shop on the same property that will deliver to your room. You can walk to BART if you want (about 11 blocks) just 2 blocks from the JL Square Waterfront, or around the corner from Yoshi's... More

We had a great room overlooking the pool and with a private balcony. The room was clean, and we loved the pillows. The staff was extremely courteous, helpful and friendly. The proximity to the waterfront was nice for a morning walk, and actually loved the sound of the nearby train. Will definitely stay there again next time we visit.
