“Honest Staff!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Bay Breeze Inn for a night before flying back home. We accidentally left our camera in the room. When I called the hotel, the staff was very honest and let me know the cams was indeed in the room. They mailed the camera back, which I am very grateful for.

The room itself was pretty nice. Unfortunately, there was a lot of construction going on, so we really didn't have a great night rest. However, I believe if there wasn't any construction, it would have been fine. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean.

Hotel is close to the airport and Coliseum and very easy to get to.

we have stayed 3 nights in the bay breeze in Oakland. The Motel is clean and in a good shape. The personnel is very nice and helpful. The Motel is well located to go to the airport or to San Francisco down town. The best price we found in the whole area remunerated some traffic noises on early morning. Thank you guys and hopefully we will see you as soon as possible. Holger and Isa from Germany.

This location was great for us because it right off the freeway, next to the airport, and there's a BART station within 1 mile, along with the Oracle Arena and Coliseum in vicinity. I had great service all around starting with the check-in. The front desk lady gave us a free upgrade to king room for the price of queen. The king room has huge 4 cubic ft fridges and microwaves. It was great since we needed the fridge and microwave for the babies bottles. Plus my wife and myself along with baby were more comfortable in king bed than the queen. The rooms were very clean and I felt safer then I honestly thought I would in oakland. Overall I would definitely stay here again if I needed to be in this area.

Staff at reception very nice. Our room was not the Hwy, but the train, we found enjoyable. The room was a completely new idea with recessed ceilings and accent wall. The bathroom was new. Very modernized. The reason for the choice of hotel was good value for the San Francisco region. A small downside is the location in an industrial area of Oakland, as it is not just the way top, was not a problem for us but it is in Frisco those corners also. We would go again. Definitely, again and again.....

Noisy, dirty, and in a very questionable neighborhood. Multiple of bars of used soap in the shower. Highway noise and train whistles through the night. Not that far from the airport and the taxi driver hadn't heard of it -- that has to tell you something. Surrounding neighborhood is very sketchy.

Unless you absolutely need a place to stay and there's nothing else available .... avoid this place.

I cannot review the hotel itself, but I can tell you the management was not accommodating. Our group of 5 booked two rooms for two nights. When a medical emergency arose forcing a trip cancellation, the management refused to refund the rooms. Flights and rental car were given as a credit but the hotel manager wouldn't budge. 12 hours notice was given prior to check-in and with the circumstances, we figured they would have been a little more courteous. Guess where we WON'T stay when we do get to take our trip?

We apologize for the inconvenience you had while trying to cancel the reservation. As per hotel policy, you cannot cancel your reservation within 24 hours of arrival. Since you tried to cancel within 12 hrs, although we tried our best to accommodate your schedule, but could'nt help. Again, we truly apologize for inconvenience.

Me and my husband have stayed here several times when flying in and out of Oakland. The hotel is only 10 mins drive from OAK airport. Although they dont have any shuttle, its a short cab ride.

Rooms itself are very clean and in pristine condition. The location is very nice. Although its industrial, its right off freeway exit and close to Oakland Coliseum and BART. We had to go to San Francisco to meet a friend and it took us only 20 mins via BART which was 1 mile from the hotel. There is a Mac Donalds nearby and a good tip for restaurants - go to Alameda, they have some of the finest restaurants and is about 3-4 miles from the hotel.

I definately recommend this hotel and they have a 5 star customer service as well.
