OK, you might have to overlook some split corner seams on the wallpaper in the corridors and maybe there'll be a few scratches on the arms of your chairs in the room, but this place is convenient, efficient, and bargain-priced compared to properties across The Bay in "The City." Moreover, there's a free shuttle service to the Coliseum/Oakland Int. Airport... More

Went to Oakland recently to watch some baseball, and got a good price to stay at the Red Lion hotel next to the Oakland airport. Was pleasantly surprised. For the price, it was a nice little hotel. Clean and kept up. The room was fine. Recommended for a baseball trip or a one night stop on the way to a... More

The Red Lion was easy to find, and very clean. The hotel is older but kept in good condition.Our room was conveniently located. clean and comfortable. The shuttle to the Coliseum was great. The food was not exceptional in the Bistro. The chicken with mushrooms and Marsala sauce tasted like Lipton soup. My husband was very happy with his grilled... More

Service was rated Poor because type of room reserved was not honored. They tried to fix the propblem with free food vouchers that we could not use because of schedule/time restraints on our visit and other plans with family members.

The hotel and area did not look promising from the outside but the room was nice. Quiet rooms, which was wonderful because the previous 2 nights we were at hotels where the traffic noises woke me up starting at 5am, not a sound at this hotel! Also great black out drapes for sleeping in. But the real gem was the... More

The actual room wasn't bad, as it was pretty updated and modern. Although I'm not sure how thorough they are in cleaning the rooms, as my fridge still contained food in a takeout box from a previous guest. The two main reasons my stay could have been better was that one, the hallway smelled (I think it was floor 4),... More

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
