Nice continental breakfast with fresh cinnamon rolls and hard boiled eggs, bagels, toast, pastries, etc. Beautiful building, good service, very nice room, comfortable and quiet. We only stayed briefly overnight so it was great for us. Super value.

Whilst my review of this hotel will be excellent I cant say the same about the surrounding area of Oakland. Very scary place with questionable characters - not right near the hotel but on the way there! Anyway the hotel more than makes up for it just stay there once you get there! Check in staff were great and we got a very nice room with 2 queen beds for the 4 of us. Plenty of parking but the shuttle bus to the airport was super efficient and the driver was nice. We were flying out before the breakfast was fully opened but the staff gave us a ziplock bag each to fill up with some muffins and pastries to eat on the plane. Highly recommend this place for an airport stay.

Come back and visit us soon.

Pros: The price for the hotel was decent for the type of room. The beds were very comfortable. The beds and pillows were the best I have ever slept in. The rooms were very clean. Shower and bathroom were clean. Hotel was quite for being near the airport. Lots of places to eat at nearby.

Cons: water pressure in the bathroom sink was low. Bathroom was a bit of a tight squeeze.

Hotel is quiet, despite how close it is to the airport. It is closer than the car rentals! Beds were comfortable, staff was friendly and helpful. There was a variety of choices for breakfast. Good location if you're going to an event at Oracle, as well as proximity to Alameda.

Room Tip: Make use of shuttle service- will take you to Oracle arena for concert or game.

I travel a great deal for work. I am usually in California 8 to 10 times every year. I have tried a number of different hotels and brands. I was in Oakland over the weekend for a baseball game with my son. The staff was outstanding and the hotel was clean & comfortable. This is the best hotel in the Oakland/ San Francisco area. I will be a loyal customer.

My husband and I were stranded waiting for our guest to arrive from hawaii after their plane was delayed 5 hours. We went to the hotel and they were amazing. They gave us a reasonable rate even though it was clearly not their fault that we were stuck. Aileen and Vicky were great people to work with and I couldnt be happier with the room, the service and the experience and I would refer this hotel to others

I travel on business to Oakland at least once a week. I will always choose the HIE on Airport Access Rd. The personel at the front desk are always helpful, quick and efficient. I would especially like to point out Hitika (Giants fan) and Kristy (Warriors fan) and their friendly interaction with the guests arriving. Their personalities alone are almost enough to stay here.
But the rooms are always clean and quiet and love the mornings with the coffee and breakfast while watching all the excited people getting ready for vacation out of Oakland or the diversity of people getting ready for the days business. Great place to stay!
