I wouldn't even think about staying anywhere else if I'm in this area again. This staff could write a novel on How To Run a Hotel by The Pros. From the front desk experience to security to the overall experience, we had a marvelous stay. Tips: ask for a room with a view (top floor) and take advantage of the... More

Quiet, adequate accommodations with nice location relative to Oakland airport. Stayed on third floor, non smoking, which I agreed smelled like smoke. For me , the second biggest issue is quiet . It was quiet and clean . Efficient helpful staff. Complementary breakfast was better than most. Coffee was particularly good.

Our family chose this hotel because of its closeness to San Francisco and price. We also wanted complimentary breakfast and wifi, which it has. The price was very reasonable, the staff was friendly and seemed to enjoy meeting guests every need. We had a delightful bike ride along the bay shore and walked through the public waterside park next door.... More

Unfortunately we didn't arrive until 9pm at night because we would have enjoyed more time here. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Right next door is a nice restaurant named Horatio's which we walked to for dinner. There is another restaurant close by we are told but we didn't have a chance to try it. Horatio's was good and...

We went up to Oakland for the Yankee / A's game and needed a place to stay. Some places are,..well not so great up there. But then I came across this place. I read all the reviews and they are spot on. The view of the marina if you can get one, is so relaxing. We ending up being on... More

Location: South of the Oakland International Airport away from traffic congestion & just 1 1/2 miles from freeway 880. Two restaurants (Horatio’s & El Torito) are within 3 blocks. We heard air traffic noise but I never noticed it after 10 pm. Reservations: Save money by calling the Inn directly. They were courteous, helpful and accommodated my request for a... More

My family and I stayed here while travelling up the coast back to Canada, and I can't begin to express how impressed I was with my stay here. It was such a relief to stay at a warm and welcoming place with such character. The attention to detail (from the bathroom soap, Keurig machine in the room, quality breakfast that... More

Warm cookies and cold milk every evening at 5PM. What more can I say??? This hotel is a real gem. I was in the area for work and didn't want the usual chain hotels near the airport. This hotel was 2 miles from where I was working but seemed like a 1000 miles away in spirit. It is located on... More
