Reviewed November 15, 2011

Chauncy was incredibly friendly and helpful when I stayed at the Clarion last month. She made the stay at this nice and convenient hotel even better.

The restaurant connected to the hotel is great and the woman who takes orders is super friendly, too.

Room Tip: Higher floor was best in terms of noise outside, given that it is downtown.

Great locaton downtown Oakland. This hotel has about 65 rooms that are a little small but well maintained and comfortable. The design makes this hotel seem more like a botifque hotel because I believe it is a converted extended stay hotel. The staff here is great....They are friendly and helpful. The connected restaurant has a very good menu offering a variety at reasonable prices. The owners and operaters of the restaurant were super nice and helpful. If I return to Oakland I will definately stay here again!

I am working a couple blocks away, and this hotel is a bargain. Rooms are super clean, and the staff makes it feel personal. Chauncy is the kind of character that makes me excited to return to my home away from home. Samir -- you better treat her right as she is one great asset.

Room Tip: Some are bigger than others, but for $90/night who can complain. It has had a nice remodel. All is...

We have been last week to these hotel we dont recommend at all.
First appreciate all the help at front desk, but....
We need to make an international phone call and we cant do it, we get a rate of 120 plus tax per night, very expensive. Room to small, beds not so good. Restaurant breakfast to limited, not enough variety, last day it was closed. If you think that you can get a walk in afternoon or at night it could be a bad idea, downtown Oakland is a little dangerous to people that dont know where to go. For the rate u can afford another hotel level. Good things, Bart 12th station 2 blocks from the hotel, front desk amasing guys, thanks.

Hi Samir,

Ever since your Clarion Hotel opened a couple years ago, I have been quite please with the experiences I have had. My last visit, last week was no exception. Ms. Chauncy was very helpful during my stay. I experienced my first earthquakes during my stay and was quite unnverved about it. Chauncy was able to calm me with humor, and a bit of sarcasm, which I appreicated. She is to be commended for her actions.

The rooms are great. The parking situation is bad, but what can you do.

Thanks,

Mark Haley

Room Tip: Stay in ground floor, if an earthquake hit, perhaps you can get out of the hotel quicker. I'm j...

I stayed two nights at this hotel, the staff was friendly and the rooms were nice & clean but small. The hotel is downtown so you should expect to see all of what each city has in it's downtown the homeless, druggies etc....For the price & location I would stay at this hotel again I had a positive experience...

Forgoing the location (Oakland is a little scary) the hotel was neat and tidy. The rooms were a little small but they were clean and recently renovated. The room decor was modern as good quality (especially in the bathroom).

The elevator was so slow - taking the stairs might have been faster.

The rates are fair and the staff were exceptionally firendly.

No view to speak of. Close to BART station for access to San Francisco.
