“Good pick for a cheap, quick stay near the airport”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Let's get one thing straight--EVERY hotel around the Oakland airport is "sketchy." That's Oakland. If you're wigged out by it, stay in Alameda or San Leandro; however, if you're not easily put off by the location and are looking for a cheap place to crash for a night, the Days Hotel Oakland Airport is a good choice.

This property isn't fancy by any means, but it does have your basic amenities, including a complimentary airport shuttle. A word of caution--the shuttle is shared by several other properties and runs on a continuous cycle. While I've personally never experienced this, there is limited space on the shuttle during peak times, so give yourself plenty of time to get to the airport in case the shuttle is full.

The rooms are clean and feature your standard complimentary toiletries and hair dryer. The towels are pretty threadbare, but tolerable for a short stay. The beds are average and have seen many a traveler, but at least it's a bed with clean sheets and not a chair in the airport terminal. There's not a whole lot that is special about this hotel, but there's nothing to complain about either if you don't arrive expecting to stay at a Hilton with Hilton-class amenities.

There is no restaurant onsite any longer, and while there is a Denny's and Jack-in-the-Box within walking distance, it's ill-advised to walk around this area at night. If you're looking for a late-night meal, grab a pizza flyer from the lobby when you check in, and order a pizza to be delivered.

The biggest quirk about this hotel is that the lobby is in a separate building across the parking lot from the hotel rooms. However, the nicest thing about this property unlike some of the budget Oakland Airport hotels is that all the rooms open to an inside corridor instead of opening directly to the outside.

Book for a clean, budget stay!

Average hotel with everything you'd expect for the modest price. Clean & the staff were helpful.
Only one minor problem, just 1 of the 2 elevators were working meaning a very long walk to our room which was the last in the corridor.
Good location handy to a number of places for quick meal options & a market if you want to prepare your own food. The walk to the BART was about 15 minutes, we did it a few times including very late without incident.
Breakfast area was far too small & a 15 minute queue for the waffles is crazy.
Not that it bothered us but the pool & restaurant were both closed, they may want to change their advertising to reflect this.
