"convenient to family"
Third stay, everything was very good for us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We do a lot of traveling. The ratings given were as good or better than other hotels we've stayed at, and I was looking forward to our stay in Jack London Square. However, we were given a room on the side closest to the Amtrac rails, so the comfort of our stay was not very good. The room was obviously old. The shower door was poorly hung, so it leaked […] onto the carpet, leaving a musty smell. And $14 parking was a rip off. Not the hotel's fault, but business men staying across the hall left their doors open and talked to each other all morning. To put it mildly, this was the worst hotel we've stayed at in a long time. Too bad you probably won't share this. It makes the ratings pure fiction. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to access to San Francisco"
Liked the hotel and the adjoining restaurant. Carpet not the cleanest but all else fine and bed very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Didn't know where to stay in East Bay area. Pictures on-line looked quaint. Got there on sunny day. Had a car show at the wharf; great blues music by quartet; nice restaurant choices. Next morning a farmer's market where we bought the day's food and some gifts. Room had a patio; overlooked the pool. Smelled musty at first (close to water), but vented […] with open patio and room fan. TV flickered (DISH connection?). Staff very accommodating. Parking free. Would return.

This was my first time stay. I was a little worried due to some of the prior comments about noise, but it was fine. I was in a courtyard room and didn't notice the train. My room was extremely clean, bed was very comfortable. New TV! My stay was great, will definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"San Francisco Trip"
The hotel was in a very good location for us to catch the Ferry to San Francisco and to drive up to Napa. Walking distance of a lot of nice places to eat etc. The room was clean. I will stay on my next visit to the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent Hotel for a good price"
Best things: The pool deck is nice. The rooms are a great price for the bay area. The hotel is a couple of blocks from the Blue Bottle in Jack London, and right across the street is Beer Revolution, which is great.Genuine Expedia guest review
Terrible stay here. Room was dirty and could hear my neighbors who were up all night (literally till 3 or 4 am). Avoid this hotel!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My wife and I picked this hotel for its proximity to the Fox Theater (about a 5min drive). The hotel surpassed my expectations, it was clean, comfortable and the staff was friendly. I would reccomend it to someone going to the Bay Area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Inn at Jack London Square"
This is a good little hotel. Great location, within 2 blocks of Jack London Square, 4 blocks away from the Amtrak station at Jack London Square. 5 minute walk from ferry stop over to downtown San Francisco. Other than that, not sure about anything else. I was only here for a half day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel just too close to railroad tracks"
Reasonable accommodations. Too bad Amtrak comes through between 3 AM and 4 AM. Hotel was updating TV stations via Direct TV and only 20 worked during my stay. Sounds like a lot, but no sports channels (ESPN, etc) where available and my stay was over the weekend. (Front desk waved one nights parking fee $14 as compensation) Location was great for my […] various day trips and only two blocks from Jack London Square. . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Noisy party motel"
I called the front desk twice to request that they deal with the people partying right outside my door. This was going on at 1:30 in the am. I got very little sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to City Center and Jack London square areas"
great bed, clean but simple room, nice off the street patio and pool, protected parkingGenuine Expedia guest review
It was fine. Thanks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK and convenient to Jack London Square Amtrak"
Hotel was old but well maintained. Staff was above average. Room adequate. Price high for the type of property, but OK for the tourist area. Convenient. Larger nearby hotels have better services and are less expensive, but convenience counts. Good restaurant attached to property. Not bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Out door vs indoor pool"
The hotel was great. I wanted to swim. Expedia said there was a pool. I assumed heated or indoor but it was cold and outdoor. Not the end of the world! Nice hotel ... Expedia might want to be more descriptive ThanksGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel is convenient for shopping, restautants etc"
Bathroom area is too small and conjusted. the floor can be upgraded to better quality for the room price. no refridgerator...or microwave...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient place to be"
The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable . Only have to pay for garage parking at night. Shares parking lot with best breakfast , lunch diner in area. Area little questionable at night, but had no problem. Internet was on again, off again. Would stay there again, only 2 block from ferry, Bart, and Oakland's main street.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Have stayed in much better hotels in Oakland. Can't recommend this one. Didn't feel comfortable at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Close to the Square/Old but Clean!"
The front desk staff and Housekeepers were very nice. The hotel has obviously been updated with soft goods but without structural renovations it will remain "old" feeling. The AC is on a register against a wall, the room (though I'm confident was clean) had a faint urine odor. The hallways could use padding under carpet and the in-room shower knob had […] the hot/cold backwards so it took longer than it should have to get hot water. The bed was extremely comfortable and a dressing/make up area separate from the toilet/shower was nice to have!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what I expected"
This is the first time I've disagreed with an Expedia user rating for a facility. I found the building to be extremely tired looking, and the room to be passable at best. My window a few feet above an intersection did little to shut out the street noise or the horns of passing trains. Rather than counting sheep, I lulled myself to sleep listening to […] roaring motorcycles for an hour, wondering if it was a biker neighborhood or just the same biker going around and around the block. In my 40 years of travel experience, I'd say this facility should be charging about 2/3 what they do for a night's stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, basic hotel convenient to most necessities"
It met our needs but is definitely in need of some upgrades. It was clean and the staff were all professional and politeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Old hotel in bad location"
I paid 180 for this hotel. A little high for what you get. They did give me free parking though which was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall, the stay was fine. I called room service and they said they would call back and never did.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The floors of the hotel mostly the lobby and the office area seen from the check in/out counter were quite disappointing. It appeared the carpets were heavily soiled and needed to be replaced. The person on duty at check in didn't explain how to use the blank entry key to enter the room. The bed sheet had blood stains on one side of the bottom sheet. […] During check out and several days after my stay I tracked my hotel charges and learned the hotel ran unauthorized charges on my account. After questioning hotel personnel in person and via phone a final amount for the room was charged $208.00/night $14.00 of which was for parking as if persons traveling are not driving a vehicle.

"Better than Anticipated"
Great location, wonderful diner next door. Quiet, staff pleasant, room comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location; excellent accommodations."
Very nice accommodations; friendly and efficient service, clean room, comfortable bed; exceptional pool and surrounding area. Very pleasant.. Good restaurant for breakfast nearby. Only negative was the neighborhood. Quite a lot of people with drug and homeless problems. And high-crime neighborhood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel - good get away -"
Near webster & 2nd - great food truck! Great coffee near by and 2 blocks to the pier.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonably priced hotel in a convenient location."
This hotel is reasonably priced and in a location for business in the city center. From the outside, the hotel is not much to look at, but the rooms are fine and the pool area is nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good price and location"
clean room and comfortable bed. could hear the trains but the location is easy for walking to eat and drink at many places. parking on site is helpful although it's $14.00 a day. I would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel near fun area for young adults."
Fun area. Good safe garage parking. 120V Electric outlet to recharge EV was present, but hard to get to. There is no intentional EV charging though, and no dryer outlet for fast charging.Genuine Expedia guest review
"better than expected hotel"
i had a quiet clean room. the outdoor pool area was clean, fresh towels, lounge chairs, much nicer than i would have expected. I need to return to Oakland later in the fall and will stay here again. One negative experience: i needed a 4:30 a.m. cab to airport which should have cost @ $35. The night clerk set this up for me, yet the next morning, I was […] picked up by a driver with a regular car, not a taxi cab. The car was clean and he seemed professional so I went with it, but when he asked for $65 at the airport I protested. He quickly backed down and invited me to pay what I wanted. I'm pretty sure he and the night clerk have an "arrangement" and I didn't like being set up that way. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Mediocre at best. Crappy hooker hotel vibe. Hot roomGenuine Expedia guest review
Room condition was good, rugs were a little worn. Rooms were ample sized and the pool area excellent. Staff were helpful and very pleasant. Location was very good, short walk to Jack London Square with excellent dining.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to all activities"
The inn at jack londonGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Attention Light Sleepers"
If you are a light sleeper, BEWARE of AMTRACK horn blowing throughout the night just a block away. If the train horn doesn't keep you up then the extremely loud A/C unit will. Older hotel needs new mattresses and style uplift. Breakfast place right next door was very convenient and the only thing that made my business mornings worth being there. The […] surrounding restaurants were over priced and the area just seemed to lack anything fun and exciting. Overall, I will not stay there again, too noisy even with earplugs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"ok, but ended up checking out early"
We weren't too thrilled with the room. The hotel courtyard and pool was okay, but the rooms were small. Also, the train goes by constantly blowing the horn.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy Giants game stay"
Great location for the $$$, around the corner from the ferry and BART so access to SF is wonderful. We rode the ferry directly to the Giants game. Hotel was ok they keep it clean but we don't really hang around so sleeping was good shower bathroom soso. The only thing that caught me off guard was being charged for parking, I thought it was included. […] Overall a nice place to stay, Jack London square is nice with a lot of places to eat and imbibe and not crowded at all. We will be going back for sure, great spot great value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice courteous staff. Room was clean and our door opened up to a beautiful courtyard and pool. Hotel was near many great restaurants. Rooms were nicely decorated and comfortable, but had old musty hotel room odor. Not bad for the price, would stay there again. Neighborhood was a little sketchy after dark, but we walked a few blocks to Chinatown and […] didn't have any problems. Yes, there was some train noise, but never woke me up at night. Overall good stay Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall we had a nicee stay. The beds are very comfortable. The train was quiet with the fan on. But unfortunately we left our kindles in the room and did not realize for a day and when called they said they did not find them. Restaurant next door has really good breakfast!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
confusing layout from lobby/reception to elevator parking is secure and well lightedGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would prefer Motel 6"
I paid more than one hundred and fifty dollars per night for a room that was out dated and unclean. There was a large stain on the bedding, hair in the shower, the TV did not work and the WI-FI was unbearably slow. I would not recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Did the job!"
Wasn't the perfect hotel, but was what I thought it would. The staff was friendly the second day and jumped my car when it died in the garage. Jack London Square was nice and close to San Francisco.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was very accommodating. The room was very adequate and clean. It was just what we wanted--historical and nice room. It isn't a five star hotel but we were not expecting it to be so.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close by to Jack London Square"
Hotel was close to water and Jack London Square, 10 minute walk to Bart Station and close to all bus lines. Hotel was clean and very quite. Very close to lots of restaurants and Oakland's Chinatown Had a very good time!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It feels like an old school 50s-60s hotel with the balcony around the central pool. Good value compared to other hotels in the area. Room was updated and comparable to a Courtyard Marriott. The elevator was a tad unconventional... I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was expecting more from this hotel. Certainly not a classy spot esp considering the location and price. Be forewarned, it's not the worst but you won't wanna go back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not sure I will return."
Sub-par. Location fair but parking add on expensive. Unfriendly desk clerk bordered on rude. Room: stained carpet, rotting door frame in bath, inadequate electrical outlets, slow wi-fi, poor television reception.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In for the night"
Non-smoking rm smeeled like smoke. Train whistles on the hour. TV noise from neighbor's room. Clean. Otherwise comfortable. TV OK.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is conveninet located with great restaurants nearby. The hotel was clean and well kept considering the age of the building. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
