After reading a lot of the reviews of the surrounding hotels in the OAK airport area, this one is the BEST. I wouldn't rate the front desk help #1, but the manager (Roshi) is great on trying to please every guest--she takes it as a personal commitment. The rooms are nice but dated, comfortable, parking is free, wi-fi is free (you may need a CAT5 cable if the signal is weak, but the front desk has them), breakfast is varied and has something for everyone. There is a shuttle to the airport, BART, and rental car terminal. They do have a small workout room, a business center with free internet and printing, jacuzzi, but are not close to any restaurants--get your lunch or dinner before you come to the hotel.

Rooms are in great shape.
Staff are very friendly and helpful (Do not confuse this with the new Holiday Inn, which needs help in that department)
It is a quiet Hotel, that is well kept. It is a little distant from decent restaurants though. so a car is needed.

Nice clean friendly service. But seriously folks, once the sun sets you'll not want to leave the building unless you have a car. There is no restaurant nearby, but they do offer two beers or wine and some pretzels. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. Good shuttle service to the airport.

Booked this hotel the same day as arrival. Rooms were renovated recently. Staff was extremely helpful and nice. Good breakfast selection. Very convenient to airport, less than 2 miles, but very quiet. Hallways were warm but overall a terrific value.

We ended up staying here because of a screw-up at the Fairfield Inn(read my review of F.I.) but it turned out to be a great hotel. Redone rooms w/flat-screen TVs, great breakfast, nice & helpful staff. I wouldn't walk around there at night but the hotel was perfect 4 us. No airport noise!

Room was comfortable and adequately furnished. Beds were very comfortable and included a variety of pillows. Nice to have a refrigerator and microwave, plus coffee maker in the room. Without the A/C on, the room was incredibly hot, even when the thermometer did not show a high temperature. Bathroom does not have a fan. Breakfast is complimentary but is not great--includes cereal, yogurt, muffins, danish, eggs and bacon or sausage (precooked, not fresh); good coffee. Service was mostly positive. All employees but one were helpful and friendly. Location is as close to the airport as you can get, but no plane noise was audible; easy access to freeway and BART. Best deal is the free shuttle van which will take you anywhere you want to go (within 3 miles I think); this was a great deal for us, as we went to the Oakland (McAfee) Coliseum back and forth every day, plus the Coliseum BART station. Also free WiFi in the rooms is a bonus. Plenty of restaurants and shopping within walking distance (or take the free shuttle).

I was in Oakland on Business and was booked at another hotel, After I decided to stay a extra night a booked a room here. Wanted to go into San Franciso for the day after checking out at 11 am next store at Hilton). I asked if they would keep my bags until I can back and they were happy to. Room was nice and bed were really comforable (unlike Hilton). Wish me whole trip was booked here. Great Free Airport Shuffle too
