A miserable place. No swing lock on the inside of the door -- it was broken off and not replaced. Cracks and amateurish patch jobs on one of the walls, and not small cracks either. I would say I got a room that never should have been rented except that the carpet in one of the elevators was dirty and... More

Don't bother going here! Stay far away! Staff is rude. Double charged us and refused to reverse the charges. Staff is unprofessional. Hotel is a bit old and run down. Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time coming here.

When we got there I was getting ready for a rundown room but I was surprized. The room was clean. Really good customer service. The only gripe I have is the parking. We had to pay but it is expected in these areas.

Hotel lobby and hallways smelled clean. Room was very clean and smelled fresh. Bedding was crisp. Plenty of towels, nice shampoos/soaps. Good gym. When only 2 treadmills available both should be in working order...only one was.

Great hotel, great location near the airport, near the Bart and Metro bus line. Great room, very clean. Free breakfast of Fried Rice, scrambled eggs, sausage, country potatoes with peppers and onion, pastries, hot n cold cereal and lots more. The shuttle runs 24/7 and was available anytime we needed it. Would recommend to anyone.

Let me tell save you the experience of staying at the Red Lion. I booked it because I read on Tripadvisor that they had a good, free shuttle from the airport and I was coming in late and did not want to take a taxi.

Our family used the stay, park and fly option as we had an early morning departure from Oakland airport. The room was adequate and the shower was nice.
