I travel a fair amount for work and am used to the cheap hotels my company put me up in. However, I am inclined to share my experience at the Red Lion Oakland. First off, the positives. The staff was relatively friendly and the bed was comfortable with a good selection of pillows and better than usual towels. The room... More

I book all my hotels through Priceline - Name Your Own Price. For my 80.00 bid, Priceline placed me in this hotel. After reading some of the reviews, I was very concerned and expecting the worst, but once the deal is sealed with Name Your Own Price, there is no turning back. Our flight landed at 8:30am after a long... More

Is our first family visit to Oakland, we were very please with this excelente hotel, the parking is free, the beds are real EXCELENT, the only problem is that the buffet is poor (egs, cereal, fruit, coffe), and they close the buffet at 09:00 hrs. so you must wake up early. But they have excelente staff.

This hotel is not nice. First off the computers were down and it took me 30 minutes to check in and I was the only one there. My reservation was not correct. TV was from the 60's. I guess the other one was broken or stolen off the wall. Carpet in the room was dingy and old. The only good... More

Reserved a room for 3 adults and was sent to a room with one bed without warning or offering a rollaway. Carpet and wallpaper was worn and dirty. Paid a ransom to be "upgraded" to a room with two beds and a view of an outdoor pool that was falling apart. Crown molding in lobby looked as though it was... More

For quick layovers this hotel is adequate. The front desk staff were terrible. The service gets 0/5 but the convenience to the airport and "budget" prices are the hotels saving graces. The room was clean but required updating. On check out the front desk staff was speaking on the phone to a friend and let us know as much... very... More

They were friendly, attentive and I felt I received more than the hotel rate might suggest. I definitely recommend staying here. The complimentary shuttle to the BART station made getting to our meeting in S. F. across the bay super easy (they even sent the shuttle when we called after returning to San Leandro on the BART). The only thing... More
