"Best location in Oakland"
Right on the water. Surrounded by great restaurants and attractions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I really enjoyed my stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A very quaint hotel. There is no parking though. You have to pay $25 per day to valet your car. The valet guys are super nice, but that cost adds up. We complained about the cost and they changed our overnight rate to the day rate of $15 per day. The location is great, view of the marina, lots of great restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient Great Hotel getaway"
We only stayed one night for a concert held at Yoshi's, but the neighborhood had great restaurants you could walk to and it is right on the water so very calm. Hotel was clean and service was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel, Great Service, but Very Loud train"
Hotel location was great, beware of the $25 parking fee. Also, don't count on getting a good night's sleep. The amtrak train comes by about every half an hour during the middle of the night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful laid-back little hotel on the marina. Try to get a balcony room facing the bay and enjoy the sunset over San Francisco.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I took my friend for his birthday! Good timesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great little hotel close to the Amtrak station. Perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It's a beautiful hotel that's dog friendly and had an every evening courtesy shuttle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Boutique Hotel"
I cant say enough about the staff and the hotel. They upgraded my room to a corner, balcony with a fireplace. Not only was the view spectacular, but the size and comfort of the room was second to none. Danny at the front desk went out of his way to help with anything that I needed. The public waterfront brought out a few characters, but all in all this […] was a fabulous hotel experience. I cannot wait to bring my husband back with me on a leisure trip.

"Not 4 Stars...."
It is definitely NOT a four star resort. Fortunately we used our free night stay for this location. Had I actually paid full price for this hotel I would have been mad. Its outdated, small and the photos look much better than the actual place. The bathrooms are sub par. Old closet doors etc. The best thing about this place were the pillows. It needs […] a renovation. Driving to this place I was concerned we may get shot. No joke. It is NOT a neighborhood I would walk around at night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Like a day at the beach."
We built our trip around a concert and dinner at Yoshi's, so stayed at the Waterfront. A number of their rooms have great harbor views; it is like being at a beach resort. Any number of fun restaurants and bars in walking distance. However, the restaurant at the hotel was a great surprise; we had breakfast/brunch, very innovative cocktail selection, […] way beyond the bloody mary, and their bloody mary was great. And, a very interesting set of food choices from local and organic suppliers, well prepared. Service was great fun. Do spend more and plan for a harbor-facing room -- some have decks.

"Great Hotel but Noisy Trains!"
This is a perfect place to stay if you want to be near Jack London Square. Everything was perfect except for the train noise. Trains go through frequently , even during the night. The tracks are only a couple of blocks from the hotel, so...yah. It's noisy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome as usual"
Enjoyed the room, the fireplace was a welcome surprise. The room was very spacious and was very clean, the pillows were good, and room service was awesome. Front desk guys great, and valet worked our perfectly! All in all a great visit. Will stay here from now on as we are frequent visitors to the bay area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really enjoyed being on the Jack London Water Front. Great restaurants available too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Right on the water, close to the ferry, BART and fabulous restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel for the price. Very good location at Oakland Marina right next to the ferry terminal. Ideal location to make day trips. Reasonably priced restaurant and bar.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Waterfront Hotel exceeded my expectations. Jojo, the front desk agent was very nice and professional, he went above and beyond in providing quality customer service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything"
I loved it. I was so close to my favorite restaurants and bars, as well as where I went for a concert. And I got to have my doggy! I forgot her doggy bed and they brought me the cutest doggy bed and bowl :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to places and the Ferry to SF!"
We enjoyed ourselves !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A great hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great find in oakland"
Perfection. Loved everything about this hotel and the location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel and location"
Nice rooms and beautiful location. The decor is nautical and tasteful. The area is surrounded by restaurants, shops and a great farmers market on aundays. Only down side is the $25 parking so I gave it 4 starsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrific location in Jack London Square waterfront"
Overall the Rating could have been a 5, but the only restaurant was reserved for a private party on Saturday evening, and there were no other provisions made for us to have a quiet cocktail together to celebrate an anniversary. The condition of the hotel is that of a cleverly renovated property that was clearly aging and in need of deferred maintenance […] before it was acquired. The hotel staff is working hard to offset any shortfalls in appearance/condition, and engaged at every opportunity to make sure our stay met our expectations. Be sure to visit the wonderful Farmers Market every Sunday morning right outside the hotel--it raised the rating of the surrounding neighborhood. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great stay!!! went for a romantic getaway and loved the balcony view!! Love the location which is right in the middle of Jack London Square!! Hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful. Will definately stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very comfortable hotel and everyone is very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great views, very friendly and helpful staff!"
Everyone was very helpful and friendly -- from the valet to the housekeeping staff and the front desk staff. We will definitely stay here again. Their Christmas decorations were lovely! Love the linens and the provided toiletries. We had a beautiful view of the estuary and the boats and birds. Heaven!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Thin walls, but beautiful location"
I could hear all of the intimate interactions going on with my neighbors at 2 am. You can also hear the train in the background (but I like that). The location is great. The staff are nice. The room had a great view of the sail boats.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff was gracious. We received a complementary bottle of wine while we sat next to the fireplace. The valet was also very courteous. It was an overall great experience in a great waterfront location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value for the price"
If you are frustrated with $200 to $300 per night hotels in San Francisco, this is a good alternative. It is often priced at less then $150/night. Located in Jack London Square [JLS], you have access to decent restaurants, the Ferry service to San Francisco and easy access to the freeway. It is also close to Oakland Chinatown if you want some inexpensive […] yet authentic Asian food. The rooms are comfortable and clean for the price. My only criticism is the $25/night for valet parking. But you can use the public garage in JLS as an alternative [although I did not check the price for comparison purposes].

Waterfront Hotel is an excellent place to stay when visiting Oakland, CA. I was located in the heart of Jack London Square in a fully furnished suite with a wrap-a-round balcony and perfect views of the harbor, small boats, San Francisco Ferry,, and the early morning walkers. The lobby is a charming sanctuary with a continuous burning fireplace. All […] members of the hotel staff wee extremely friendly and helpful. The Lungamare Cafe provided excellent food each morning. When visiting Oakland, I will always stay at the Waterfront Hotel and reccmmend to other family and friends. . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room and staff were great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Jack London Square is now filled with great restaurants - we tried the room service from Lungomare once, and it was very good! Good free wifi in rooms, views of marina are amazing and worth the extra money, but the $25/night car parking fee is steep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Tissue paper thin walls and very noisy. Expensive valet only parking. Relocated to a hotel just down the road and was much happier. Not a very nice place for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice vibrant area"
The hotel was nicely set up, the staff was great, and the room was comfortable. The view of the dock was also a plus. There were many restaurants within walking distance and downtown Oakland was only about 10 minutes walking. I took the Amtrak to Jack London Square which was only about a 5 minute walk to the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice room, very big. Location was good next to lots of shops and food. Only thing was no hot tub which I usually really care about, but we went to see Pearl Jam so it didn't matter.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel highly recommend it!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice nautical theme"
Hotel is nice and the staff is excellent. Great water front location. Had a negative experience with valet parking, rental vehicle was damaged while parked overnight. Didn't notice damage until after departed hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location for an Oakland visit"
Waterfront Hotel is ideally situated for walking and taking public transportation to restaurants, bars, and sights in Oakland. The Ferry to San Francisco is easy to get to from the hotel. The bayside room we had has a beautiful view over the pool and boats docked at the marina. Staff was friendly and helpful. We scheduled a family event in the attached […] Lungomare restaurant which went very well thanks to excellent food and service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great room, great hotel, and a great experience!"
Incredible view of the bay, along with exemplary service and walking distance to top-notch dining. Excellent!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
JoJo at the front desk gave me the best service I have received anywhere in at least a decade. In this day and age he stood out as one who really wanted to help people!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best in the area, but priced accordingly"
It was nice, close to ferry across bay and Jack London Square is a nice place to stay. But had to pay for valet parking and they were so busy when we were checking out that we had to valet our own car. I wish we'd had time to request a refund of that night's cost of valet parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Paper thin walls"
This is not the place if you expect any sleep. Paper thin walls, you can hear people in the hallway talking, ice machine, voices carry up from the lobby and from outside, especially the active train tracks on the east side of the hotel...which should be disclosed on the site or in the hotel description. Room was otherwise ok but small and bathroom outdated. […] Overall, not a good value. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect Nautical Experience"
Loved this hotel! Was so impressed by the room and the location for what we paid for it. The restaurant connected to the hotel has an amazing brunch, and its location to other shops and restaurants was very convenient. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Oakland.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was large, bed was comfortable. The area is somewhat remote. They charge for parking. Overall room was very comfortable. They have wine & cheese from 5-6 pm daily.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were on a family trip and had some bumps that the staff happily helped us through. The hotel is okay, nice to be on the water and I was happy to see a sauna in the gym. But what was best was the helpfulness if the staff. Kudos!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best hotel of our stay"
We stayed at 2 hotels in Oakland area. This was the better one. It had all the amenities we were looking for plus a beautiful view. Staff was great. The room was spacious. Beds were just right. Ample space in the bath. The room was quiet and everything worked.Genuine Expedia guest review
