We always stay here when in Oakland. Room are clean and comfortable. However, the construction is a major nuisance. Waking up at 5am on a Sunday to a man outside my window on a scaffold and plastic over my window was too much. Not to mention the elevator and lobby issues. The truth is I really want to recommend this... More

If you're visiting Alameda or Oakland, this gem of a hotel is a good option. It's walkable to the waterfront at Jack London Square, and there are plenty of excellent restaurants and cute bars to visit. The Buttercup next door is a favorite breakfast spot of mine. They're currently doing some construction, but I look forward to going again when... More

We came into town last minute and was able to get a room for a reasonable price. We always stay here when we go to San Francisco, since catching the ferry right down the way is so easy. Lots of restaurants nearby. Front desk staff was friendly, room was clean, kids love the pool. It was under construction but we... More

Was in a good location where there's was restaurants in every corner , location was not too shady and had a pleasant experience overall at the... More

In the middle of the beautiful Oakland, near the Bart station that connects you with San Francisco in few minutes. Lot of restairant all around, really close the jack london square. The hotel is simple and quite old but clean and useful. Good place to stay in.

Older motel, but nicely renovated. Clean rooms, comfy beds and a nice pool area. Amtrak line is close by and the trains hoot as they go through town. A nice mellow sound which surprisingly doesn't wake you up during the night.

This should be called Motel not Inn. My room had front and back doors, one to a hallway and one to a pool-on the second floor. My room keys malfunctioned because you can't open certain doors first. I would get locked out and have to go to the front desk and get maintenance to accompany me. They had no idea... More

What a pleasant staff, even with some construction going on this staff made every effort to ensure guests were never inconvenienced. Staff did great recommendations for food, sightseeing, and transportation directions as well as any property I have ever visited. Simple, clean, sincere staff at every position we encountered. Great team effort.

Nice location by Bart and ferry to San fran and AT&T park. Super nice staff, very comfortable bed. Would be nice to have a safe and a mini fridge in room. Great value compared to staying in expensive hotels in San Francisco .
