Our room was well appointed, comfortable and quiet. We appreciated the easy and friendly transportation provided from the airport at night to the hotel and from the hotel to the car rental facility in the morning. We only stayed overnight, but would stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel on a business trip for one night. The hotel is located close to the airport with plenty of restaurants and a Wal-Mart nearby. For those not familiar with the area it isn't the safest ever but you should be okay. Just use common sense when you go out. This isn't anything on the hotel because... More

I've been a travel agent for 35 years, and I did not want to write a review because I hesitate to write negative reviews, but...it is important that I do because I SHOULD have learned my lesson and listed to the tripadvisor overall comments.

The stay was wonderful. It started with the Front Desk under the management of "Carmela". Her and her staff were warm, friendly, and prompt. My brother and I stayed for several days. The front desk always had a smile and positive vibes. We drove from Texas for business. We stayed in Beverly Hills before heading north to the Bay Area.... More

Quick overnight stay before flight. Friendly, accommodating staff, clean room, comfortable bed and linens. Easy in and great access to airport. It is an old hotel, but they keep it up nicely. We will do a repeat!

Overall a good value, street side is very loud in the morning, the annex buildings are old, rundown. Definately get a room in the main building. The Cafe is not bad. The italian place across the road sucks

Just trying to check in. Several people behind the counter and one person taking care of guests. I waited in line for nearly 45 minutes. I must also comment on the staffs knowledge of operation.

The Red Lion is a nice place to stay. Very convenient for those traveling via Oakland International Airport. They have regular shuttle service to and from the airport. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. They have fridges and microwaves. They have a restaurant on the premises that's a little too pricey. There is not much within walking distance of the... More
