We stayed a Saturday night over Labor Day weekend. We were in No. Cal for college tours. We were headed to Berkeley Sunday morning and would have stayed up there but the cost of hotels was at least 40-50% more. This place was perfect for us.
We requested and got 2 beds. Don't expect a view. Our neighbors were very quiet, so didn't need earplugs. The shuttle to the Oakland Athletics game with fireworks dropped and picked us up right at an over pass entrance into the stadium. No waiting for Bart for us. The drivers kept in contact with the hotel and other guests so everything ran smoothly. Breakfast was fine, complete w pancakes. Plenty for everyone and Sunday's breakfast was going even after posted hours with management making sure the coffee was ready.
Price was $112 a night with AAA. Parking was plentiful, wi fi worked well. This is not necessarily a place where you might vacation. Walking/jogging area is just surface streets. But airport access, traveling through worked great for us.
Everyone was courteous and did their job. Not one issue.
Highly recommend if you need an airport hotel, an overnighter for an event at the arena or stadium.
Good job HI Express Oakland.
