If you want tranquility by the Estuary, this is a great location next to Oakland Yacht Club. I've known this place since the late 1980s... the Inn is painted every few years, but otherwise hasn't had a facelift in decades and shows it. The location is quiet, off the beaten path yet convenient if you have a rental car; its a fair hike to the bus line. There is nothing within walking distance, really... you need a car for this location. Extended Stay America offers a nearly new property in a similar location with better aesthetics and a lower price; consequently, Marina Village Inn is never full or nearly full, there's usually just a few cars in the lot. Unfortunately, even when confronted with the reality of their aging property, lack of amenities and high prices, Management are flat-out pricks to deal with. They will either not answer the phone, not return calls, or just be short and rude when you finally reach them. There are no deals, don't ask. So, for less $ you can stay at the newer, nicer ESA just up the road, leaving pretty much zero reason to stay here. This is not a one-time experience with MVI Management; I spend every summer in Alameda and contacted them in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, with the same miserable experience every time. It's a shame, because its a nice waterfront location on the Estuary walking path... but then again, so is ESA for 20% less.
