What can I say? Dark, musty room. Old tattered carpet. And a room facing a loud courtyard with bottles breaking, people screaming and even skateboards until the wee hours of the morning. This is what the customer gets for $300+ and an additional $75 "amenities" fee? Pass on this one if you can.

It is evident that attempts have been made to improve, but this is simply an old motor inn with a poorly done remodel. The website is very deceptive in its depiction of rooms and amenities. One this you cannot depict in a website is the smell. The stale mold and mildew stench was overwhelming. New paint covered up old wallpaper... More

The staff are all very friendly, professional and thoughtful. Beautiful pool area. The rooms are attractively decorated. My bed was exceptionally comfy. There are lots of great restaurants around the marina and a movie theater close to the hotel.

I read mixed reviews of this hotel but found it very clean with good sized rooms and bathrooms. Yes I could hear the people talking in the next room and the decor was a bit tired but the lovely staff made us feel so welcome. They had upgraded the pool area which was nice with beautiful flowers and I liked... More

I spent a night at The Inn at Jack London Square and was pleased with the location, comfortable room, amenities, very clean pool area (complete with towels, cushy chairs, and pleasant flowers), and friendly customer service. The location is a stone's throw from the harbor where you can find the ferry to San Francisco and several blocks walking to the... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. The staff here is super friendly and accommodating! We were in town for a music festival and had a few other friends also staying in the hotel. They had a terrible experience at the hotel across the street and needed to book something else... More

Have stayed here several times when attending concerts nearby. The are doing renovations, but doesn't affect you. The pool is fantastic! You will hear some trains in the distance, but I actually like that. Overall, you can't beat the location and the staff is first rate.

If soft mattresses and freight train whistles are your thing you will love this place! We didn't get much sleep due to the noise of the trains and the banging that occurred in the early morning due to construction work. Oh, and they charged you $2.75 for a small bottle of water! On a positive note the place was clean... More

Pros: Good location, very helpful and pleasant staff, good value for the area, secure parking garage, clean, free and reliable wifi, spacious balconies overlooking the pool in some rooms. Cons: It's looking a bit worn and in need of refurbishment. More importantly for me, it's VERY noisy. We could hear the people in the next room; we could hear the... More

The location is great. You're not far from dining, or fun. My husband and I wish we'd brought out bikes along so we could just ride all over. The beds were okay, definitely needs to be updated since you could tell may people had slept in them; there was a huge dip in the center. The service was great and... More
