We booked this hotel because it was close to the Amtrak station. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel exterior and courtyard looks like there's a major renovation going on and it will be very nice when complete. Our room was clean and recently redone with new carpet and paint. The bed was ok--I've had better and certainly... More

The Inn at Jack London Square is being remodeled and upgraded. Service was especially courteous and efficient. We have stayed at this location many times over the years and found it has steadily improved. However, the parking fee has now been raised to $20/day - a bit disappointing. The convenience of the excellent coffee shop next door is always a... More

Unless you need to stay at Jack London Square, there are better options. From $20 parking, to outdated accommodations, you can do better. There is a Family Style restaurant in the adjoining building. Plenty of activities going on in the square and all within safe walking distance. Good News/Bad news, Amtrak is Close and so is the Highway.

The Inn at Jack London Square is a bit worn around the edges but very convenient/walkable if you want to catch a show at Yoshi's. The restaurants in the neighborhood are very good: Fat lady, Scott's, Jack's Oyster Bar and Yoshi's.

This was my second time staying here, both times for work, but on this trip I made the hotel my base for a few days. It's a perfectly serviceable non-chain hotel with easy access via the free bus/shuttle to downtown Oakland. It's near the water, and many good restaurants (including a diner next door which I highly recommend for breakfast).... More

The staff was pleasant but it doesn't make up for the old motel vibe and being part of the parking lot of a coffee shop and a borderline sketchy area. Three stars are way too generous. I would barely give it a two star rating if I was in a generous mood. The toilet was leaking so was constantly filling... More

Location, location, location. Jack London Sq. in Oakland. Basic room. Not a good value, but if this is where you need to be... The lighting in this room was dim. The TV was fine. The soap, shampoo and lotion is very nice. The pool area is very attractive and the pool looked inviting. There is a small gym. The garage... More

I was a little unsure of this booking as I had seen conflicting reviews, however I really shouldn't have been. Found the hotel easily and pulled straight into the spacious (for hotels in San Fran area) parking area. Reception were very friendly and efficient, offering plenty of useful advice for our stay. On reaching our room, we found it more... More

We stayed there in October 2015 to be near Jack London Square for a large family event there. This place is a short 3 block walk to the Square. Nice staff, clean, good price, got us in last minute. Buttercup Cafe next door is pleasant, which is a good thing because this is not an area you would want to... More

This is a fine "motel", about two rungs down from a Days Inn. Lobby is very small, linoleum floor, bench seat, no A/C but oscillating fan. The room was very small but clean, overlooked a busy street, few blocks from Amtrack. Accessed room through the garage. The Inn is next to a large adult entertainment complex. We chose not to...
