I stayed here for 3 nights to attend the Oakland A's 2006 ALDS Home game and was very pleased with this hotel.
Usually I stay at the Hilton when I attend sporting events at McAfee Coliseum but their prices went through the roof due to this playoff game and I wanted to be here for pre and post game partying so the Hilton was way too expensive for a multiple day visit.
The first thing I liked about this hotel is the excellent shuttle. It runs 24 hours a day and will take you to any nearby place - not just the Airport...they'll take you to a nearby restaurant, bar, actually they seemed pretty cool about going anywhere nearby. I was not going to drive with all the beer flowing during this festive atmosphere and left the driving to the shuttle. They even took me to the game.
Second it is a very safe and secure feeling facility. This area is not the world's most comforting location and I appreciated the indoor corridors and the vigilant staff who made sure to ask to see my i.d. when my key became demagnatized. Make sure to bring your i.d even if you just go for a quick walk to get ice and are in your sweats and slippers - that's what I was wearing and still had to show them i.d to get a new key!
The room itself was very large especially compared to San Francisco's cramped (and overpriced rooms). It was also EXTREMELY clean. The only thing that I didn't like were the very tiny cups but that's about the only complaint I have with the room. It is nothing fancy but that was ok. I had no need for a mint on my pillow and a mini bar. I slept well on the king size bed and had no complaints about noise whatsoever.
(they did also have ethernet and wireless internet which I did not use but want to mention for those who might need to know).
I also appreciated the free breakfast buffet where you could make your own waffles and had boiled eggs, plenty of different bagels, muffins, fruit, yogurt, juice and coffee.
If you need to stay in this part of Oakland and need a clean, safe, basic hotel this place will do just fine.
