“A hidden gem in Oakland!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Would never have stayed here but, read the rave reviews on it and decided to take a chance! Everything people had written about this place was true. Very clean, great free brkfst, husband went NUTS over the bar..nice people there to chat with..and, unreal steak which the bartender cooked right outside on the patio overlooking the water...it was like being at a friends house..instead of a sterile, anomimous hotel. Nice little shop for snacks etc, and a Starbucks a block away we walked to!!!
We would definitely visit here again.usually stay at the Claremont, but it gets expensive..so nice to have another tried and true alternative where we feel safe!

Room Tip: Nice view from second floor

Thank you for choosing to stay with us!
I am glad you appreciated our service and staff. We try to make you feel at home as much as possible.
The Starbucks and the other few stores, a block away, is very appreciated among our guests.
I look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

I stayed here a few night while in the bay area visiting from Hawaii...We flew into Oakland international turned on the GPS and were at the hotel in 10 minutes...we were
in a suite in the separate building north on the building with the hotel lobby...check in was a breeze, our room request was fulfilled (top floor), and room was fantastic.

Yea you definitely want to be on the ocean side so don't be a cheap charlie and go for a regular room or book with an online travel website or you might end up on the noisy freeway ghetto side rather than the ocean side.

Our suite had a separate tub and shower, great view, and quite. Wifi is strong. Breakfast we tried both locations in the main lobby and the next day our lobby downstairs...more than enough to get you started for the day.

Its just a short hop over the bridge to SF, free parking at the hotel..

Room Tip: spend a little extra for a suite on the ocean side

I have been staying at the Executive Inn since 1999. The EI only gets better every year. Trully a first class experience w/o the $700. per night price tag. Ritz-Carlton type service. Mark , the GM is an industry pro and understands all levels of providing a memorable overnight stay. Beautiful Bay views, afternoon wine bar and great breakfast. Tell your friends who visit Bay Area.

Room Tip: Top floor, Bay view to see the Bay lights. Dine at Quinn's Lighthouse near the hotel.

I never do reviews but was impressed by the cleanliness of the room, great beds - firm and fresh, the outstanding amenities - breakfast, shuttle services, and the friendliness of the staff
and their willingness to go the extra mile. I would difinitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Our first night was in a room fronting the highway which was noisy. Best to ask for a room lakeside...

The Executive Inn and Suites has been my home since July and all I can say is they have the very best staff ever. The General Manager Mark is the GREAT, He goes out of his way to accommodate you. Michael is also a super personable manager, Howie the bartender is hilarious, and he also grills juicy steaks. Nice breakfast bar... The staff will help you with wonderful smiles on all shifts. The spectacular view of the water behind my room is so soothing. If you are looking for not only a place to stay but also a place to enjoy after you have been around the city THIS IS IT. I really appreciate all that you and your staff have done to make me feel at home these past 4 months Mark. Thanks a million

Room Tip: corner suites are really large and sunny. they are also quiet.

Michael,

I wanted to take a moment to say thank you one more time. This is the easiest group of people I have ever worked with. I know as an organization our goal is creating the best possible training environment possible. Working with you and the entire group of awesome people at Executive Inn made me feel like I had a team of people that were committed to that same goal. Everyone from the front desk, the housekeeping Staff, Michael and the banquet Staff, were amazing! THANK YOU!!

I also stayed in one of the suites and it was an excellent room. The next time I come I hope I get to spend a little more time in these luxurious rooms!

Picked the Executive Inn and Suites based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. They did not disappoint. We had reserved a Junior King Suite on the "water" side. At check-in we were given a choice of floors which was nice as we prefer a ground level room. That way we can just wheel our stuff in from the parking lot without delay or elevator hassle.
The room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was probably the most immaculate we have ever encountered. Not even a water spot on the glass shower wall.
The only negative aspect was the amount/type of lights. Like most places today, they are trying to conserve electricity which results in some dim corners.
Also, not a fan of the water closet. Don't care that it does have a phone. I'm never that desperate.
Added bonus was that the wife hasn't stopped raving about how nice it was. I got some attaboys for my choice.

Room Tip: Like most other reviews, I would recommend the water side away from the non-stop freeway din.
