“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We reserved a block of rooms for our 40th AHS high school reunion. It was so nice to meet all our classmates for breakfast and there was still seats and tables left for other guests. No tiny room with 85 yr. old men standing in the corner trying to eat a bowl of cereal and hold a cup of coffee because there was no place to sit. The beds are extremely comfortable! The hotel was very accommodating. Shuttled some classmates over to the reunion. Picked others up at the airport and shuttled them back for the trip home. They have a wonderful beverage bar in the lobby that is open 24 hours. Hot water, tea, hot chocolate, coffee, regular, and decaf, and dark roast coffee. Flavored creams available too! Several kinds of tea available.

After our reunion we closed up a local bar, then came back to the hotel. We opted to get some coffee and sit in the sitting area and upload photos to our computers and to Facebook. The guy at the front desk was so nice. He turned the dimmed lights up for us. We felt very welcome.

Free wifi in the rooms and in the lobby. No problems ever with it, or with the speed.

There is a wonderful walking path outside the hotel along the water. A short walk to the SF ferry. Some classmates took the ferry to SF for lunch before the reunion on Sat.

Some say this hotel is not close to much. Minutes to the airport. Yes, a long walk to the main land of Alameda, but a cab ride would not cost much and would be less than 5 miles to the heart of the city's downtown district or to South Shore shopping mall. Or possibly the hotel would shuttle you. If hubby golfs, I bet he could get shuttled to the golf course just 1 mile away, and the rest could take the car into town.

You'll love your stay here, I know I did!

Room Tip: Ask for a water view. I had an odd number room on the 3rd floor, 325 and it faced the water. The thi...

This is a regular ol' Hampton Inn — clean and predictable — but I love it for several reasons:

1. It's priced (at least when we stayed there) like a regular ol' Hampton Inn. There was no giant markup like you find at a lot of bay area hotels.

2. It's close to the Oakland airport for convenience, but it's not in Oakland itself. It's in a very nice, office-park-like setting with manicured lawns and virtually no pedestrians. Alameda seems like a safe, quiet area, unlike most of Oakland.

We rented a car, but if you want to take public transit there's a free hotel shuttle that will take you to the airport, where you can connect to BART and zip over to SF pretty quickly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great room with a view of the bay, good service, good breakfast room, and very quiet, even though it is at the end of the runway. 5 panes of glass in the windows. Didn't hear a thing.

This is a normal Hampton Inn hotel with usual excellent service and quality amenities. What makes it stand out from other Hampton Inns is the location, quiet and peaceful, very close to Alameda's Park street with variety of great resturants. Very accessible to freeway and airport (Oakland) yet you'll hardly notice the airplane noise.

Very handy for Oakland airport but once in the room we wouldn't have had any idea that there was a runway round the other side of the hotel... in fact we heard more noise from the television in the room next door. Breakfast was the standard (excellent) Hampton Inns offering in a comfy and spacious room. The room had wired and wireless Internet so there's a bit more security if you need it and my portable £13 wifi router worked fine.

Dear John,

Your observation about the lack of airport noise in your room, despite the close proximity to the airport is one that we often hear. I am glad that you enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and the ambiance. The security of the internet access is a popular feature that many guests appreciate, it was nice of you to notice.

Your business is important to us, thanks again.

Just minutes from Oakland Airport, free shuttle was very prompt. Rooms very spacious, quiet and relaxing after long flight. Staff very helpful, and will upgrade Hilton Honors members if they can. Shuttle is on demand, no need to reserve time or be there at a certain time.

great place to stay, staff ,value,safety and clean! I was looking for a place near Oakland but not in Oakland with a reasonable price point. Location was a little off the beaten path but my family actual enjoyed the quiet even though we were near the airport noise was not an issue. went for a great 3 mile walk on the trail nearby and had an excellent breakfast.

Dear Alejandro,

What a wonderful review of our hotel! It sounds like you had an enjoyable stay, taking advantage of our nearby trail for a three mile walk and topping it off with a tasty breakfast. Many of our guests are pleasantly surprised as you were to find a quiet, safe hotel that is still accessible to the Oakland airport.

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your visit to the Bay Area!
