This hotel was clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating. I booked a same-day reservation after another hotel wasn't able to honor my original one. The staff was very kind, making sure I had everything I needed and giving me directions to a good breakfast place. The street was noisy. This hotel has been renovated and included good in-room...

I enjoy staying here when in Oakland. The location is great, close to freeway and several good eating, drinking establishments. The neighborhood is transitioning and the I@T is right in step with that refresh. Rooms are comfortable, fairly quiet but the best part is my man Nick who holds it all down rock solid.

We stayed here for 3 nights on our 2 week trip through California, this was our 4th out of 5 hotels. The vicinity is not the best although it is very close to the Bart station to get you into San Francisco in 20 minutes for $7.30 round trip. We did feel nervous walking back to the motel after dark... More

Northernbelle412, Thank you for your review! Our area is rapidly developing around the centerpiece of Oakland and Bay Area Transit, the MacArthur Bart Station. If you make it back to Oakland I'd encourage you to take a second look at the Temescal Area. We are very close to placing refrigerators in all of our rooms! Also, I will take a... More

This little gem is awesome!! The place has been redone from top to bottom and is centrally located. We spent a weekend there while attending a music festival in Oakland.

So, I lived in Oakland for 10 years. When I go back to visit, there aren't a lot of hotels to choose from. This one is a rehabbed motel in a very convenient (and kind of loud) location. The rooms are bare bones, but very clean and modern. The front desk was incredibly sweet and helpful. I paid $270 for... More

Good location if you want to pay less than city center. Close to the bart station(mac arthur). Clean rooms and nice staff. Free parking. There is very nice bagel shop for breakfast. Good for family trip.

The only issue we had was the small parking lot and limited spaces, other than that it was a pleasant stay. Walking distance to several places to eat. I will be staying here on my bext visit to Oakland.

The Good: The rooms are large and nicely outfitted. Plenty of power sockets, desk space and a table and chairs for eating at. The room was clean, bedding spotless, and an abundance of fresh towels. The Staff were brilliant. Friendly and attentive. Little touches like the list of recommended eateries\delivery places make it great for a no hassle experience. Downtown... More
