Quiet and very nice respite in the heart of Oakland’s downtown west side near Jack London Square. Helpful staff, tidy rooms, pool in central area, next to nice place to grab breakfast. Close to everything, including the ferry to SFO. A short walk to the bay running trail. Clean. Wi-fi free.

We booked this hotel because it was the official hotel being used by our conference. The hotel is conveniently located a block away from Jack London Square, where guests can enjoy the beautiful Embarcadero, which includes lots of shops, restaurants, and direct access to the ferry to San Francisco. The free “B Shuttle” also stops right in front of the hotel, and will take guests through downtown to Lake Merritt. The rooms are nicely renovated, but the amenities vary from room to room. Some rooms, come with a fridge and microwave; ours did not. A restaurant next door provides meal services upon request (so no free breakfast). Also, we did not have safes in the room so I had to lock our passports in a safety deposit box at the front desk.

In town for a wedding and stayed here for 2 nights. This hotel is an older one that was remodeled, but not enough! Small rooms. The bathroom was very small and hard to maneuver in. Bend down and you bang your head or butt! Shower was poor. Air conditioning was poor. Also overpriced. This was not a $200/nite room. No complimentary breakfast and old drip coffee makers in the room! Loud train every few hours a block away. Also, not in a great part of town and had to pay for parking! Would not stay here again.

Enjoyed my stay at the Z Hotel. Staff was friendly. Location is so-so, and had some ants in the room (don’t leave food just sitting out). It was a few ants here and there, but not a big deal. Linens, furniture, and bathrooms were clean. I enjoyed working with the front desk staff. I felt safe inside. Parking is $25/night, FYI. I thought the ButtercuP was nice and friendly, but a little expensive. Jack London Square nearby was pretty cool.

Pros: Room was very clean. Great location just 1 block or so to Jack London square with many restaurants and waterfront. Comfortable bed. Buttercup restaurant next door has excellent breakfast-worth the prices. Cons: this place has so much potential, but unfortunately the rooms are quite run down. Peeling wallpaper, chipped woodwork, terrible bathroom lighting, not enough counter space in bathroom for 2 adults, poor water pressure in shower, uncomfortable/worn out pillows. The pool area has is large but needs new furniture and pool deck could use some refinishing. Gym was only cardio machines and no water provided.
