We wanted to visit family in Alameda and go into SF and walk to coffee in the morning. There's at least two excellent coffee spots within walking distance, and you can take the Ferry or a free shuttle to the BART. It took us just over an hour to get from Golden Gate Park to our hotel during rush hour -- and we were happy not to be in a car. The room was clean, and the outdoor pool great. The staff was very friendly, and the underground parking was reasonable.

Room Tip: We stayed in the courtyard; peaceful, and easy access to the heated outdoor pool.

We stayed in Oakland a few days before heading to Point Reyes. I loved staying at the inn at Jack London Square. The courtyard is very comfortable and feels like a villa somewhere other than an urban center. You ca walk to the Harbor. We happened to be there for the monthly Harbor Walk with music, artists, clothing and jewelry stalls all set up. I did quite a bit of Christmas shopping. I would definitely stay there again.

Living out of the area, we decided to stay local for a concert we had that night at Yoshi's. This hotel is perfectly located, 2 blocks (walking time approx 5 minutes, casual pace) from Jack London Square.

We were able to explore Jack London Square, had dinner and walked to Yoshi's for the concert.

The hotel is nice. Definitely 3 Star as advertised. We had a room upstairs, away from the pool. Bedroom window facing Washington Street. No loud noises from outside. Comfortable bed. Had no issues with the room.

Parking is not free, $15 usd, but is secured.

Breakfast at the restaurant next door was good and large portions (Buttercup Grill).

We would definitely stay here again when attending a Concert at Yoshi's.

We had an early morning flight out the next day and wanted a hotel close by to Oakland Airport but with an attraction. Situated right on the water and view of boats coming in and out fit the bill perfectly. We had no reservations and right from the valet to the front desk desk we were greeted enthusiastically and warmly. Forget about the color scheme and architecture of the building, the room was great with it's view and the comfort of the bed and furniture. Valet service was perfect on the drop off and return. Great little coffee shop as part of the property. The restaurant had a gourmet menu...nit what we were looking for...but certainly something epicureans might better appreciate.

Needed a hotel with easy access to Alameda and the local Alameda hotels were booked. I decided on the Inn at Jack London Square because of the ease of access to Alameda. Nice hotel but nothing special. Room was comfortable and clean. A bit noisy because of trains but not too bad. Good value. Great BBQ place nearby.
