“Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

My grand-daughter (10 months) was having surgery at Children's Hospital, a few minutes away from this hotel. My daughter-in-law flew in with my grand-daughter and the hotel picked them up at the airport by shuttle. They also shuttled them back and forth to the hospital, before I arrived. After contacting ALL the other hotels in the area, we found this was the ONLY hotel with that convenient service. But that was not the only nice thing about this hotel. The hotel was an older one, but the rooms were nice. Nice bed, big TV, wet bar with micro-wave and fridge in the room, hot breakfast, and every night they offered a different dinner, for a very inexpensive price. The hotel is located on the San Antonio water canal - Port of Oakland, and we had a water view which was beautiful, and a nice place to walk and enjoy the boats, and ducks. If we ever go back to this area, we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you like a nice view, ask for a water view

Close to downtown and easy access to highway. Clean rooms, good size and well furnished. Get a room on the bayside as the road was noisy. Pleasant walking path on the bay and basic continental breakfast.

We enjoyed one night in this restful location. Oakland can be such a busy, noisy place, with the port and lots of industrial activity, freeways, BART, Amtrak, etc. that this motel was a pleasant surprise. We had a large room facing the Embarcadero Cove, looking over to Alameda.

We had two queen beds, large TV, microwave, refrigerator, hair dryer. A separate sink and large vanity were next to the bathroom. The excellent shower had a large grab bar. There was only one chair and a desk but the private balcony had two chairs.

Room 220 had a lovely, open water view. Some of the rooms would have their view blocked by trees. We enjoyed the balcony and bucolic view of the lovely landscaping, the water with sailboats, rowing teams, and ducks. There is a walkway along the cove with benches every few feet and picnic tables.

We did not eat the breakfast but saw that the room had lovely open views to the water. On the first level there is a patio with shaded tables and chairs, and a pool.

Rooms on the first level do not have private balconies, just open patios. Rooms on the "city side" do not have balconies and they must be very noisy as the Nimitz freeway is just feet away, as are tracks for BART and Amtrak. It is worth every penny to pay for the "water side".

Room Tip: Rooms on the second and third floors with a water view are quiet. Make sure that trees don't bl...

Great service! Hot breakfast is a great bonus and water view rooms are excellent. The location is out of the way because there're is nothing within walking distance. However hotel has a shuttle service to nearby local attractions.

Room Tip: Ask for water view room. Also look for nightly catered dinners.

Older hotel, but clean. Good sized rooms. Standard free breakfast. Beautiful view if you have a room with a water view. The best perk is the shuttle service to and from the airport, and around the local area. Free! Charming drivers!

Room was great and very clean stayed 4 nights and did not regret a single moment.
See Howie at the bar for the best $10.00 steak dinner you have ever had.
We will only stay here the next time we come to the bay area.

Room Tip: Bay view rooms are worth it
