Location was great for concert we attended, in walking area. Other visitors were noisy in hallway, talking for hours, therefore, it was difficult falling asleep (even after 10:30pm).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Slayer concert at Fox Theater..."
Decent hotel, close to venue, secluded layout, small rooms, kind of cramped, jit overall nice...Barbara at front desk was very polite and helpful...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Eat the BBQ!"
we were there for the California Library Association annual conference. Your hotel is a bit old and the room was slightly crowded, but other than those little details, it was a great place to stay and we had a great time. The fact that y'all are so close to Everett & Jones doesn't hurt! Thank you!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, Comfortable, a little dated"
Clean but dated, noisy neighborhood after dark, plus train runs close by. Not an area that I would feel comfortable taking my nightly walk in by myself. Evening staff was great, morning staff hadn't their coffee yet pretty grumpy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved the outdoor pool and lunch delivered there! The restaurants were right down the street and the rooms and front desk people were great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inexpensive but nice hotel in fun location"
This hotel offers an excellent value. It is quite inexpensive compared to other hotels in the area. But it is clean, safe, and just steps away from Jack London Square, a place where you can find different types of restaurants, a bowling alley, the water front, and more fun stuff!Genuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed our stay. Very friendly staff. A block from beautiful Jack London Square.Genuine Expedia guest review
Barbara at the Front desk was great! The location is fantastic, and the rooms are very clean. Overall, I was very satisfied.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great mid priced motel"
only problem was with the TV maintenance came in once and adjusted 2nd time maintenance never showed other than that it was a great place to stay exceded my expectations and there is a great restaurant connected to the motel I will definatly stay there my next trip to OaklandGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Hotel in Oakland"
If I could give The Inn @ JAck London Square a higher rating I would. They Have these lovely little toiletries made from green tea in these cute little bottles. And talk about customer service!!!! You ask for it and it is done almost instantaneously! The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The one thing you should be aware of though: The elevator […] is slow, there is only one. For the number of rooms at the property, the management really should upgrade to at least two elevators and make them bigger. There was also no bathtub in my room. So, if that is a concern for you this may not be the right fit. Otherwise, the rooms are competetively priced and could easily compare with a Sheraton or a Hyatt for less money. The is also and extremely popular diner next door that is very popular with both the guests and the locals. And They're open late. From Omeletes to Cream pies everything is wonderful on the menu. They are also open late till 11PM. The hotel is about 6 blocks from the Amtrak station, and there is a bus that can take you to the station or downtown for shopping. I will definitely be staying there next trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old hotel with a facelift"
Nice hotel, close to everything in in Jack London Square. It is certainly an old hotel that has had a facelift but still quit nice and comfortable. If you are searching for a nice economical hotel in the area this is a good choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient, Not Fancy"
This is convenient to the ferry and a short walk to the BART, making an affordable alternative to staying downtown San Francisco. Front desk was very hospitable and helpful with directions and suggestions. Room was just okay--the shower was barely more than a trickle, bathroom fan extremely loud and bathroom light burned out. A dresser drawer wouldn't […] stay closed... So, it's fine to lay your head down at night but not the kind of hotel where you'd relax just hanging out in the room.

Very nice hotel in a great area. Staff was friendly and gave us a complementary room upgrade. We would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel Downtown"
Business trip - Overnight, checked in late, all was Great!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location for my meetings, business trip"
Though the "business center" is minimal and computer didn't work (but took my money), the hotel itself is conveniently located and well maintained with friendly staff. Good location in Oakland.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location to Jack London Square"
This is a short walk to the Ferry and even shorter walk to all the places at Jack London Square. The hotel looks like it was taken from the 50's, and tries to keep that same atmosphere. I was surprised that even though it looked old, it didn't feel old. The room was very clean and well kept. Though it was muggy and warm out, the AC was actually cold […] enough to make me shiver at night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean but tiny"
The service at this hotel was excellent, and it was clean. However, it feels to me like it used to be a motel that was converted. The bathroom was tiny tiny tiny (and I am not a big person). If I were a big person, this would be very uncomfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old and Tired"
This Inn was given a 3.5 Star Rating by Hotels.com. That was very misleading, IMO. It should have been 2.5 at best, IMO. The inn needed to be totally remodeled at least 10 years ago, IMO. You cannot forever paint an old place. The lobby was dirty, IMO. Not again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our recent stay"
We went for fleet week, the room was clean, staff was friendly, Jack London square was very nice, a little further out than we expected from the ship but once we learned how to use the Bart system it was easy. Great locationGenuine Expedia guest review
"comfortable hotel close to train station"
We traveled to Oakland by train, and this hotel is only about 2 blocks from the train station. In addition, the restaurant adjacent is very good for breakfast (the only meal we ate there). The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. We traveled to SF by ferry and the ferry dock was also pretty close, and we did not have to rent a car.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location & great staff"
We felt really welcomed. Hotel staff helped with our minor personal problems. Balconies and pool were cool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not What We Expected"
Considering the cost, this was worth about a third of what we paid. On site parking should have been included, but was not. On the same block was an adult theater and store, not a place to walk around at night. Only two blocks from Jack London Square which was the only positive about this place. In the future I will stay further away and take a cab […] to and from any future events. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel close to Jack London Square."
pleasant greeting at the reception. Nice parking experience. Earplugs were needed due to the location near the train tracks. above a strip joint and adult toy shop - didn't go.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This is not a good place to stay!"
Definartely wouldn't recommend this place to other travelers. The rooms and common areas have a urine smell. The bathrooms are small and the showers are so small that you have a difficult time turinng around in them. Just not a good experiance. It is right next to a Sex Shop is you're interested in that sort of ambiance!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean enough but needing renewal"
One pays for the location, but the room quality doesn't match as everything in the hotel is dated. My room was clean and the bed comfortable. However, the bathroom fan screamed its old age whenever the light was turned on. $15 charge for parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"incredible pool and location"

"Pretty good room, surprisingly a nice experience"
Stayed for a night.. room was clean, pool was a nice experience, very convenient location to Jack London Square with good restaurants nearby.Genuine Expedia guest review
when I call to make reservation I asked if you have parking and I was told yes but when I got there I was told that I have to pay $15 for overnight parking was not good it came as a surprise...when I checked when I was checking in I was not told that I need to have a certain about on my credit card so someone else had to use their credit cards and when […] I got the key to my room open the door and one of your maintenance people was in the shower fixing the shower they told me to shower was not working so I was inconvenient because it's my birthday and I had a process Street I had tons of people waiting for me so I have to check into my room and it was just an inconveniencebut at the end of the day nice hotel would I ever come again yes I would now that I know what to expect Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy to get into San Francisco"
I stay here because it's so close to the San Francisco ferry. An annual doctor check up in the early morning hours is easily accessible with ferry to Muni connections in San Francisco.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hope you like trains."
They were working on the elevator so had to carry bags up 3 floors. Only 1 coffee for a double queen room. The trains ran all night blowing their horn at the crossing 1 block away. A jack hammer was operating at 8:30 AM in the hall 2 doors down from our room. The charge for the room was more than what was posted rate for the room. The room was clean […] but stuffy. Had to open the window for fresh air flow. Was in walking distance to Jack London Square. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good choice for Jack London Square"
We enjoyed Oakland and Jack London Square. The hotel was perfectly located. It very well maintained and clean. There is a train that goes by frequently. My husband and my room was on the R/R track side but our friends had a room on the opposite side of the hotel, they did not hear the train, we did. We would stay again but ask for a room on the other […] side of the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good motel style lodging"
I only gave this hotel a 3 rating overall, not because it wasn't good, but because it isn't trying to be a 5 star hotel. My rating of 3+ is meant to convey that this is very good lodging for what it is. I would say it's comparable to an older (but well maintained) mid-level national-chain motel. The hotel was quiet, clean, comfortable and well maintained. […] It's not luxurious, but it was completely sufficient for my needs. The neighborhood is good for Oakland with plenty of options for food and drink within walking distance. It's a 15 minute walk to the heart of downtown, but I felt perfectly comfortable walking up and down Broadway both night and day. Take the free Broadway bus to downtown, or after hours Uber driver's are plentiful in Oakland so you can get a ride within minutes to/from downtown for less than $10.

It was ok for the money. I would stay here again. Room was very clean. Bed was comfy. Tv kept freezing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overpriced motel 6"
For 190 a night, the bare bones accommodations, dated interior, lack of amenities like reasonable shampoo and conditioner made this a poor last minute choiceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beautiful waterfront"
Wonderful location. Restaurant ok. Neighborhood interesting. Great beer shops across street from Inn. Would stay there again. Cleanliness very good. Very nice pool. Nice staff at front desk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel but a little "old-fashioned ""
The staff was extremely helpful. Elevators were different-from the 50's or 60's. Some rooms had refrigerators and microwaves, while other rooms had neither. Convenient location. Very clean. Great bedsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Better than expected"
Our original room was facing a busy street, so on the advice of other reviewers, we asked for a room facing the courtyard. The desk staff apologized that they only had one room on the courtyard left, but it might be noisy because it was next to the elevator. The room was perfect! Never heard a sound from the elevator, and we could walk right out to […] the pool. Pool area is great -- wish the pool were warmer, but kids really enjoyed it. Very enjoyable overall. Nice furnishings. Only downside was loudness of bathroom fan and air conditioner. Restaurant is casual and easy and can accommodate large groups. Quick walk to the farmers market and food festival on Jack London Square. Paid for self-parking, but that was really easy too. Will definitely stay here again.

"SMell of clean.."
I liked the hotel, found the courtyard to be relaxing and inviting. The room was clean.. but the smell in the room was just awful. it smelled to stong of cleaning product.. it was difficult to breath. and there was a funnier smell in the bathroom.. smelled like nacho cheese. the room was clean but maybe change cleaning productos or use some airwicks […] in there.

"Wonderfully close to waterfront"
Loved being able to walk to Jack London Square with the beautiful waterfront and restaurants. Great area to walk around. Loved the patio and pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean & Convenient Oakland Location"
Older hotel, recently renovated, that maintains fairly high standard of cleanliness and maintenance. Immediate neighborhood is a little downtrodden, but only a few blocks to Jack London Square on the Oakland waterfront and downtown Oakland restaurants and other attractions. About 6 easy blocks from BART subway and Oakland downtown circulator bus is […] right at the door. For a very reasonable price, this is a good choice for Oakland visitors--unless you're expecting the Four Seasons! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Step Back in Time or Retro Inn"
Maid staff and Front Desk personnel were top notch and genuinely friendly. No handicap rails or handgrips in shower. Any problems were handled in a timely and satisfactory manner. We will stay here again , nice waterfront area within walking distanceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The warmest staff we have ever encountered. The hotel was clean and we liked having a restaurant connected to the hotel for quick meals.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Weekend with friends"
Not much to do around the hotel, but have good options to dine at or have some drinks. Great quiet place to stay if you wanna visit fisherman's wharf about a 30 min ferry ride away. Hotel close to ferry and Amtrak station. Well stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Old fashioned outdoor access motel. Urban location. In house restaurant pretty sketchy. Lousy food. Maybe 2 stars.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, nice pool, motel 6 room"
room was clean, quiet, looked onto the pool, but felt I was in a budget motel 6 facility....just tired, conventional and mediocre for the room rate.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a convenient location but hardly worth the price. The room was crowded. The decor is dated. The window unit air conditioner was noisy. Every room overlooks the "courtyard" which is a gathering spot for guests and groups as they arrive. If you want quiet during the afternoon or evening forget it. The bathroom was the size of a closet. Barely […] room to turn around. No hair dryer or other amenities usually found in hotels.Tiny shower stall (no tub), butts right up to toilet. Took an age for water to heat up. Outlets (for computer and re-chargers) were near the baseboard. Room lighting was terrible. No fridge. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a perfect place to stay when you want to sleep after the Jazz concert at Yoshi's. Jack London square is beautiful for a walk around ... lots of new shops and restaurants.. and pretty boats all tied up. It's an old-style hotel with nice linens and enough space. A bit pricey, howeverGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Many restaurants, downtown and art galleries walka"
The hotel is conveniently located. It's 2 floors make in and out very easy and the staff went out of their way to answer our questions and give directions. The attached coffee shop has great food, reasonable prices and very friendly employees. Although our room was spacious and clean, there were a few touches that showed either age or lack of attention […] to detail (example- significant chips in the wood door inside the bathroom). If they had been attended to, the impression would be better and rating would be 4.5 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Central Location"
Very nice stay. Centrally located so many great restaurants nearby. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Near the train station however I heard very little noise. Nice pool area located in the center of the of the hotel. My wife and I felt very safe at this hotel and highly recommend the property.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
