Checked in after 8 hours of driving from Southern Cali and after seeing the sights in San Francisco. The hot shower and exceptionally comfortable bed was a sight for sore eyes, feet and legs. The breakfast was pretty good and the kids loved the pancake maker. The short drive from San Fran was worth the huge savings. While the neighborhood... More

had a great experience with this holiday inn. Dorothy at the front desk provided excellent customer service and accommodation. I believe in customer service and this hotel definitely exceeded my expectations -- much in part to Dorothy's friendliness and great attitude.

This hotel is a great place to stay. It became our 2nd home for 8 days and I was very impressed by how knowledgeable, helpful and attentive the entire staff was. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Oakland area.

This was our first time at this hotel. Front desk was friendly and processed quickly. Room was larger than normal and most importantly clean and well appointed. Hotel is really convenient to Oakland airport.. (like 3 mins away). Facilities were clean and well appointed. Everything worked fine, next time we travel to Oakland, this hotel will be our first choice,

Always stay here on business with the rest of the team. Everyone loves the place, but the internet is feast or famine. when the management is queried, the usual rote response is blah, blah, we'll check it, and then you're given the utterly useless toll-free number to call for a remedy.

We stayed twice this month, on the way to Hawaii and the way back. In all seriousness, traveling is stressful. You are staying at an airport hotel, and you arrive and become pleasantly surprised.

If you really do have to go to Oakland, you could do a lot worse than staying here. Alternatively this is an option if you are visiting San Francisco as the prices are better and the frequent BART trains will get you to Downtown in around 20 minutes.
