This is my favorite hotel. The location is right next to the Marina in San Leandro. The rooms are clean, just the right temperature, and not too dry. The staff are incredibly nice. The hotel shuttle can take you anywhere within 3 miles of the hotel (this includes the BART station and Oakland airport). There are some great restaurants nearby. The beds are comfortable. There's a heated outdoor pool. The breakfast is good (doughnuts, waffles, fruit, cereal, bagels, oatmeal, hard-boiled eggs, etc).
That said, the hotel is close to the airport, so the passenger jets create a lot of noise. I was able to ignore the jet noise fairly easily. The walls of the hotel are not very thin (compared to some other places I have been too), but you can occasionally hear your neighbors. The noise has never kept me from sleeping though.
In summary, the price is great; the staff are great; the location is great; the breakfast is good; and the noise is not much of an issue, but it is something to be aware of.
