“Some pros, some cons”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

First the good news. Spacious room with comfortable seating--- may have been a junior suite. Good counter space in the bathroom. Complimentary breakfast. Good bed. Good rates. Convenient to the freeway, but far enough to be quiet. A courtesy shuttle is available to take guests to restaurants, the coliseum, the transport station or airport, and of course, it is close to the airport.
The cons. Only one bedside table. The lamp over it did not work, but the lamp on the side with no table did! The vending macine was out of order, and the machine that vends pizza and foods that can be warmed didn't work either, though they refunded me the $2.75 that the machine ate. At least it politely thanked me after its third attempt to grab my pretzel failed!
Checking took awhile. There was a line of people and only one employee and he had to answer numerous phone calls at the same time. When it finally was our turn, he asked us to wait while he helped another person who walked up and said he had been given keys to a room that was occupied so that took awhile to redo his reservation. A loud, obnoxious program was blaring on the television in the lobby. So our welcoming experience was less than stellar, but I chalk some of it up to poor timing.
The breakfast was adequate. Breads and muffins, waffle machine, juices, cereal, dried out eggs, but good sausage, biscuits and gravy. Definitely enough to get you going. The rooms also had coffee makers. There are a few nearby casual restaurants and it isn't far into Oakland for more dining options.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with a sofa and chair. This gives you a nice spacious area with places for suitcase...

We had picked this hotel because of its 24 hour shuttle to the airport. We were pleasantly surprised with the nice spacey rooms. Everything was spotless. The front desk was very friendly and accomodating to us. There were restuarants close to the hotle. If we ever fly out of Oakland again, I would choose this hotel. Free wi-fi-, friendly people, close to the airport, what more could you want.

We stayed 3 nights here in late Feb. and then one more in early March. We were very pleasantly surprised! It was our first visits,and it will be our base everytime we fly into oakland from here on. The shuttle was great, the front desk staff, in particular Alvyn, made us feel like family! Rooms were good, quiet, comfy and featured what to me was the BEST TV remote control I have ever seen! A perfect layout. Free breakfast very nice. The location was not very, shall we say, "pretty" but it worked fine for us. The grounds were, however, lovely. Easy on, easy off the freeway too!
I am looking forward to seeing that sweet, furry little "person" when we return. (-:
Best Western Plus Oakland was a very nice find for us. We WILL be back!

Room is nice and clean, a bit outdated but still okay. Free Wi-Fi and breakfast, very close to Oakland airport.

The front desk host: Ana, Kevin and Carol are the best at making you feel at home.

I have been staying with Best Western OAK plus airport since June of 2010. My job requires me to be in OAK to start work even though I live in Los Angeles, I couldn't ask for a closer, more convenient place to stay. Its literally 5 minutes away from OAK airport, around the corner from WALMART and a few places to eat such as INnOUT, WIngstop, Quiznos and Panda Express. Also for us few people who need our morning Starbucks there's one right in the same shopping center.The shuttle service is awesome. They are always friendly and helpful. The shuttle runs every 30 mins to the airport then in between go to BART if you'd like and also to the shopping center around the corner. I've yet to experience a problem with their shuttle because that is very important if your trying to catch a flight. The rooms are large and comfy. The bathroom is spacious with lots of counter space. There is a fridge and microwave which is always handy. The hallways are always clean and smelling fresh.There is free breakfast between 6-9. I don't usually complain about anything that is free. But overall you have options and they are pretty good options at that. Also, free wifi which is always nice.The front desk is friendly, helpful and always there to answer questions.Like I said its my home away from home. I stay here about 6 to 8 times a month and enjoy it every time. Its comfortable, its reliable and I have never had a problem here.

Overall my stay was great. The hotel staff was top notch checking in and checking out. Rooms were large and didn't make you feel closed in.Plenty of hot water with good pressure which is nice after a long day. Breakfast was good with a various selection to choose from. Price was better than expected as compared to others in the same area......would stay there again with no problem.
