hotel for wedding guests

I'm getting married at Lake Temescal, with a rehearsal dinner in Alameda and a brunch after the wedding in Walnut Creek. So I was thinking Oakland is the place to stay and I'm looking for suggestions on a hotel that would be a good place for a bunch of guests from out of town that's not too expensive (or might make a deal for a block of rooms). Any thoughts and/or suggestions would be appreciated!

Executive Inn and Suites

This is on the water and is a good location to get to Alameda, Oakland and then drive to Walnut Creek.

Best Western Inn at Jack London Square

This place is by Jack London Square which would give your visitors the most things to do (non-wedding like). It has some great restaurants (I like Kincaids but there are several others);

ferry service to San Francisco is close by; etc.

While I like Alamada a lot (the views of the Bay and San Francisco are wonderful from here), I agree with Oakland for lodging and prefer Jack London Square for the location in Oakland due to its restaurants, marina, and water location.

Congratulations also!

Also perhaps Marriott Hotel - Oakland

marriott.com/property/propertypage/OAKDT

as its close to a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) terminal and they can take BART from Oakland Airport to the hotel.....

Having BART nearby will help them also to take trips around the area and into San Francisco....

I agree, I just returned from Oakland and stayed at the Executive Inn and Suites. An excellent Inn for the money and what you get for it. Big sized rooms,free breakfast, internet room, pool, giant sitting room in the lobby. The value is hard to beat.
