“To much remodel going on”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

I must start off with the staff. THEY deserve 5 Stars!! They were kind, accommodating, and right there for what ever they "could" do.
The courtesy shuttle will take you pretty quickly to where ever you need to go within the radius, which does include the BART so really they take great care of you there :)
Breakfast was there but not over the top. The only "Hot" is the make your own waffle, pretty standard in most hotels these days. Top your waffle with yogurt if there is any available, or ask and the sweet lady will get you one. Selection of white or wheat toast or English Muffin, no bagels :(. You will not find any protein in this breakfast, no eggs, no sausage... nothing along that line. 2 Juice choices, and apples or oranges, no bananas. That said the "guest" all but mobbed the poor lady trying to keep up with them as they even grabbed the food from her hands! Unreal!
Many international tours coming in or leaving out to the airport. Perhaps things are done differently in there home country.
The 2 star is from the EXTENSIVE remodel. To be awaken by slamming doors or the drilling the walls in the next room is not what we looked forward to. The floors were being re-treated and constantly taped off. Ice machines taped off, stair wells taped off, Fitness Room closed for ??? Looked fine through the window in the door. Front door was broken and if you closed it, oops it locked! So it had to be kept open, brrrrrr!
Our room was clean, but... the desk chair arm was falling off, and desk was turned around to hide the broken drawer in it Bathroom is adequate, but again, the tub is small and... uh mmmm a bit scratched up and worn. Fridge kept things a little more that cool but don't expect to keep ice in the freezer. Interesting little "closet" (no rod) to put your luggage. Freestanding Armoire to hang your clothes. OK for an overnight kinda small other wise. Bed was very comfy, and the pillows were very fluffy, read soft. There are 5 per bed so you can stack them up :)
Perhaps a better idea would have been to close off a floor at a time, i.e. don't rent those rooms while working on that floor.
Stay here again? Maybe if we call first to see if there is a remodel planned.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors have windows that open wide, great for fresh air on nice days. Shuttle dr...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

My family and I arrived at the hotel at approximately 1am with the free shuttle provided by the hotel. The location was very close to the oakland airport. I bought the room on priceline beforehand and didn't expect to have additional guests on the trip; but the front desk worker helped accommodate the extra guests without additional charges. The hotel was clean, and well lit. Though it was small, it has almost everything we needed. The hotel is only a $50 cab ride away from San Francisco Union Square.

However, when we enter the room, it did smell strongly of cigarette smoke. But at 1am, it was too much hassle to move to a different room. It was a comfortable stay until the next morning with a decent free breakfast.

The hotel is conveniently located by the stadium and the bart station. My family and I had a reunion there because we always dreamed of visiting Oakland/San Francisco bay. The area where the hotel is located is not very nice but it seems safe. Our trip was a success due to the convenience of being close to the bart and the hotel shuttle taking us back and forth to the station as much as we needed as well as taking us to the Oakland airport for no extra fee. I really liked that the staff where always in a good mood and I felt like they really care for me and my family. The drivers, the front desk ladies, the cooks, maintenance, you name it.

Easy walking distance to the Coloseum and BART station, but they will take you there if you ask, and pick you up too if requested. Rooms were large and comfortable. Air con unit was a tad noisy but the cool relief was worth it. Lovely tidy, clean, modern bathrooms. Breakfasts were fantastic both in content and value: good selection of continental including heaps of boiled eggs, breakfast muesli-like energy bars. Stones throw from chain eateries: Dennys, Burger King, Taco King. This was out first time with the La Quinta chain but the Oakland operation gave us a very positive impression. Ridiculously good value for money. Professional and kind staff. Put simply I wish we had La Quinta Oakland in New Zealand as they would be appreciated and have many return customers I am sure

Room Tip: Enquire about transport to and from Coloseum, staff are happy to assist

we have stayed here a few times and are always pleased. It is close to the events in the area, close shopping for any needs you have forgotten and terrific staff. Easy to get to the airport or BART with their guest shuttles and lovely to have breakfast in the morning .

First of all let me say that the staff at this hotel was extremely polite, friendly, and helpful. I believe they are doing the best that they can do under difficult circumstances. Those circumstances seem to consist of a situation where either the individual management of this property or the corporate office of La Quinta has decided not to maintain this hotel at the level of other La Quinta sites. The result is that this hotel is far below the standard of other La Quinta properties where I have stayed.

The overall quality of the furniture and fixtures in the room was cheap and flimsy. Although the bathroom was very clean and the bedding also appeared to be clean, one of the chairs had stains on the seat and the toilet barely flushed. The room had only a small wardrobe instead of a closet; the television not only was not HD, it had the worst picture I’ve seen in years (severe ghosting) and the WiFi only worked in the bathroom. The furniture in the lobby was dirty and shabby ; although the breakfast did offer do-‘em-yourself waffles, the rest of the breakfast consisted of boiled eggs, toast, and cold cereal and there was only powdered creamer for the coffee. Riding the shuttle from the airport after returning the rental car the night before we left Oakland felt like quite an adventure, as the shuttle van appeared to be on its last legs; the driver had to place it in neutral at every traffic stop to keep the engine from dying. The interior of the van was dirty, the seat upholstery was battered and collapsed and the interior door handle was broken so that I had to exit the van by climbing from the middle seat through the front passenger door. Fortunately, the shuttle to the airport the following morning was somewhat newer and sturdier although it appeared to be a shared service that stopped at three other hotels in the area.

In summary, I reserved a room at this property based on past good experiences at La Quinta properties but I was very disappointed with the overall low quality of the physical aspects of the property, shuttle, etc. although, as I mentioned earlier, the staff were extremely professional and courteous. I believe the shabby state of this property is due to decisions by upper management or lack of budgetary support at the corporate level. I would certainly understand (and agree) if the management needed to raise prices to support the higher standards that usually characterize La Quinta properties. This would be better than disappointing loyal La Quinta customers who expect to receive higher quality than this property delivers.
