This was our first time at this hotel. Front desk was friendly and processed quickly. Room was larger than normal and most importantly clean and well appointed. Hotel is really convenient to Oakland airport.. (like 3 mins away). Facilities were clean and well appointed. Everything worked fine, next time we travel to Oakland, this hotel will be our first choice,

Always stay here on business with the rest of the team. Everyone loves the place, but the internet is feast or famine. when the management is queried, the usual rote response is blah, blah, we'll check it, and then you're given the utterly useless toll-free number to call for a remedy. Given that we rely heavily on the internet for... More

We stayed twice this month, on the way to Hawaii and the way back. In all seriousness, traveling is stressful. You are staying at an airport hotel, and you arrive and become pleasantly surprised. First of all they provide shuttle service from the airport. They do not run a continuous shuttle, but on demand so get the phone number to... More

If you really do have to go to Oakland, you could do a lot worse than staying here. Alternatively this is an option if you are visiting San Francisco as the prices are better and the frequent BART trains will get you to Downtown in around 20 minutes.

The hotel was pretty nice. I wanted a place that was close to the airport. The location was kind of iffy, not the place I'd leave valuable in the car or anything.There was a shuttle for the airport but I didn't use it and I'm not sure how it would have worked out. I normally like to stay at Holiday... More

As our son was getting married in Alameda, we had a large group of people coming in from out of town.
