“Excellent every time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2010

We have stayed at this property seveal times because our daughter attended law school in San Francisco. We stay in the all suites section where the rooms are bigger and face the water (my guess is rooms in the other building on the highway side could be quite noisy as it is just off the freeway).

The rooms are nicely-sized with a micro, mini-fridge and coffee-maker, and they provide a very nice breakfast in the room rate. There is a small workout facility and a business center for printing boarding passes.

It is close to Jack London Square and not far from the airport; it's also not TOO bad a drive into the city, making it a very affordable, but quite nice alternative to hotels in San Francisco.

Having stayed at many hotels the accomodations are all the same. As a frequent traveler you can expect the usual services like continental breakfast, vending and shuttle service. Problems always arise when traveling and the experience comes down to the staff who handles them. What makes Oakland Executive Inn exceptional is the staff. The place has a high retention rate so you can expect to see the same smiling faces. When problems do arise you can expect friendly and proactive responses. Thank you Kelly, Roberto, Martha, Nina and everyone else for making each stay easier for the tired traveler the last few years!

From the beautiful flowers and estuary views to the friendly, efficient and courteous staff the Executive Inn is an oasis in the Oakland/Alameda area, and at the same time a good value.

Today for example One staff Member "Mardy" went from her task at the front desk seamlessly to shuttle driver and never missed a beat with her helpful upbeat and professional attitude and smile which combined - translated a local business trip into an enjoyable and speedy endeavor.

This is why I have returned to this property on business trips to Oakland for over 10 years.

I stayed three nights with Executive Inn and Suites and enjoyed the stay immensely. I was advised to stay waterside and was glad I did as I had a lovely view. The staff and everyone we encountered, especially Mardy, was friendly and outgoing. They always tried to be accommodating, whether it was picking us up after a night out, or advising us on how to get to San Francisco and back. My room was clean and comfortable. The first night I was awakened late by someone stomping around above me. When I mentioned it to the staff the next day they quickly moved me. The hotel shuttle is a fantastic perk, saving you from cabfare (though a tip is appreciated) and allowing you to set up times to leave the hotel as well as be picked up. I traveled with 6 colleagues and all of us would stay here again.

The Inn is ideally loated and Mardy at the front desk is always warm and welcoming! I only wish there were more locations such as this one! I love that they have expanded the wine and cheese nights!! Thank you Executive Inn and Suites! See you next visit

I have been a frequent guest over the past four years and have grown to know the wonderful staff, especially Mardy and AJ who always greet me with a warm, friendly welcome and utmost professionalism. I frequently visit Oakland for business. I have tried other Hotels in town for comparison reasons and have decided never to stay elsewhere but this Inn. The basic rooms are a bit dated (old tvs and furniture) but they make up for it with cleanliness;beds are comfy, linens and towels fresh, quality soap,coffee maker with Peerless Coffee and green tea bags. The Suites are very nice and worth paying the extra to stay in if you want a more updated room.The waterside views are beautiful and the outdoor pool overlooks the water! Awesome place to relax. Plus they offer breakfast in the morning and wine in the late afternoons. The price is more than reasonable especially booking direct on their website.

I chose this hotel from reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. From the moment we checked in, we were impressed. The staff was excellent, including Miguel and Mardy, who made sure we were pleased with our stay. The room was large and looked out onto the water. The bed was super comfortable. They have a business center with computers which was important because we forgot our laptop and had to check messages from clients. The breakfast was unbelievable--everything you could imagine, and changed daily. From now on, this is the only place we will stay in the east bay!
