"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
"No. Just... no."
Awful. The bed had ants. Do I need to say more? OK. The neighborhood is borderline slum: strip clubs, graffiti, abandoned buildings, homeless sleeping in doorways, urine smell. Just awful. Do not go out at night. Adjacent to railroad tracks -- train blowing its horn every night at midnight and every morning at 6. Hotel itself was kind of shabby. I know […] it's cheap (for the Bay Area), but it is not worth the price. Avoid, avoid, avoid. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel needs updating. The shower didn't work properly. Coffee marker was old and falling apart . The hair dryer didn't work. The hotel over charged on parking. I would say the only part that made the stay bearable we're the friendly maids.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OAKLAND JACK LONDON SQUARE"
Great location ... easy access to BART, San Francisco Ferry, great restaurants and Jack London Square. We are glad we stayed here!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location - Close to Yoshi's & Jack London Sq"
Room was great and very comfortable, including the king size bed. The rubber plug for the bathtub had seen better days --- chipped edges and looked moldy. Also had problems with the TV in the room - appeared to be something wrong with the feed as it kept fading in and out. Pleasant Front Desk staff that we dealt with both at check-in and out. Liked […] the gated underground parking; for an extra $15 it was definitely worth it. Friends ate breakfast at the adjacent restaurant and said it was a good. If the small things mentioned were fixed, I'd definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"In the light of day, the place wasn't awful!"
I got into Oakland after sun-down and the place is not in a great neighborhood. I know it is Oakland, but the "Secrets" nightclub in the next block was not what I imagined when I read the reviews. The train that runs through town, whistle sounding, is astonishingly right on time . . . every 20 minutes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overnight in Jack London Square"
Great location for a quick getaway if you are spending time in Oakland or SF.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Like visiting family away from home"
Omar and everyone there are genuinely nice people. You can tell the employees are happy and really enjoy their job, because they greet you with a smile, where ever you see them. Housekeeping employees are nice and the rooms are exceptionally clean. The breakfast is wonderful. Most of all we felt safe there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel and room had a odor that was very unpleasant. It comes from the dirty filters in the ac. We kept the doors open to get fresh air. The beds slept very good. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The colors and decorating could be updated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not quite 3-star experience"
This is not a 3-star hotel. Bathroom was very basic and very small. Very old elevator that eventually was out of operation for maintenance. Front desk staff were very nice. Location in Jack London Square is its biggest draw.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old school charm & a really nice staff"
First, if you want new & up to the minute-- this hotel is NOT for you but if you like simple and old school-- this is a great place to stay. We have stayed at The Inn a few times and pick it mainly because it is near our son's house and it has a great pool that our g'kids love. The rooms are basic- no frills but nice and clean, the lobby is tiny but […] there is a nice business area and work out room. Parking is secure and there is room service from the cafe next door. Movie theater around the corner, Jack London Square a block away-- great restaurants in Oakland... we will stay here again and will ask for the rooms with a balcony-- they are our favorite.

"Well-situated, but basically like an old motel"
Stay was Ok, but noise and light came through adjoining room door. Arranged like a motel with outside corridor with people walking by the window, except that instead of parking you looked at a nice pool. Pool area was arranged nicely. Room overly "perfumed" on arrival, but they did let us check in early so we could then walk the short distance to Jack […] London square. Bottled water in the room was $3.

"Bar exam--loud train"
I stayed here to take the July Bar Exam. According to the woman at the front desk a lot of applicants stay there. If you are a future Bar Exam taker reading this review be aware that the train runs very near this hotel. The whistle was very loud inside the rooms, and a train would go by at least once an hour. I think under other circumstances (not the […] bar) the train noise would not have been so bad, but when you are already having trouble getting to sleep because of the test the last thing you want is a super loud train whistle waking you up all night. I have no complaints with the hotel, rooms, staff, or service. Everyone seemed nice and professional, and the m Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Looked better in the pictures"
Room decor a little dated, tiny bathroom, rooms a little noisy - overall just fine, but the hotel looked a lot nicer in the pictures than it did in reality.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"a pleasant surprise"
i was a little hesitant about staying here but it turned out to be a really great experience. pleasant staff, friendly service, and a good/standard room. if you want to save a few dollars, you can find affordable parking on the street. overall, it was a great experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nothing like the pictures!"
Pros - Location was close to Jack London square though there seemed to be many homeless loiterers in the neighborhood. Towels in the bathroom were nice. There was a sink in the bathroom and a sink outside the bathroom which can be handy for families. Cons - hotel room was very grungy and outdated, especially the bathroom. Not sure if the room wasn't […] the cleanest or if it was just grungy. The lights in the room were all fairly dark. Off-brand amenities in the bathroom. Half of the rooms have their doors leading directly to the outside, kind of like a motel. The other half have an exterior door facing the pool courtyard. Many channels had a bad satellite signal so were pixelated. Parking is an extra $15 per day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very convenient for purpose of my trip."
My expectations were not high, but I was pleasantly surprised by the order and cleanliness of the hotel. The pool area was clean and attractive as well. Only criticism would be the cooler functionality - had to turn it down to 60 degrees to get any cooling. Not a big deal once figured out. Also, for the cost of the room, parking should have been included. […] The charge was a nominal $15, but free parking would have added perceived value. Also there is no place to pull up to check in. The outside parking lot was consistently full, and there are no signs directing customers where to park to check in. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"WRONG SIDE OF THE FREEWAY & ALL NIGHT TRAIN HORN"
This was not a good experience. In fact the first Hotels.com choice that was unsatisfactory. The train sounded the horn every hour throughout the entire night. Very tough to sleep through. Too far from the rest of the group at City Center near 11th & 12th streets and Broadway. Would not recommend this hotel. Sorry!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"cute, unexpected find"
needed an airport-close place to stay (but not so close you hear planes all night) for an early morning flight the next day. Usually stay at the Marriott, but that was completely booked, so stumbled across this property. Was a very pleasant surprise. cute retro vibe, clean, well cared for property that is VERY reasonably priced. walking distance to […] all sorts of good food options. staff were all great.

"Close to free shuttle to BART"
Great location to take BART into the City and stay out of the traffic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was a decent stay, but not worth the money!"
I think the room was decent. But for a three star hotel at the rate I paid, I was in awe of the grounds and amenities. It looked like a trashy motel at first glance. My pillows had stains on them and I had to sleep above the comforter. The location to the waterfront was nice but the neighborhood on the way there was disheartening. Honestly, that might […] be more of a reflection on Oakland as a whole than this particular hotel though because the city seemed a little depressed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Price was fair,,,"
Enjoyed my stay .The location is excellent. Room was clean, nice view of pool. Bathroom very small.. No microwave.. Just a average room, but the price was right for Jack London Sq... The woman desk clerk during the day (Tues thru Thurs) was outstanding... I would stay at the Inn again.. Overall, the place was just fine!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not recommended for business travel"
You get what you pay for: The train is about a block away and VERY loud. The wifi service is terrible. I would not stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
TV is based on satellite rather than cable and routine lower level stations didn't work., They sent someone to the room who said, yeah, the sound doesn't come in well on those stations. Totally unacceptable. Thankfully I was only there over night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

General thoughts; Court yard very nice, with pool Staff very nice and helpful Location excellent Park a deal at $15 in/out access 2 Beds Queen size best for one person Vanity sink area could use more lighting a bit darkGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great find!!! Great location!!!"
From the time I checked in to the time I left, I was treated very special. Barbara at the front desk was warm, funny, and accommodating. Barbara offered to watch my bags when I checked out and she told me to enjoy the city and have fun. I will definitely be back and will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone I know who will be in the area. Thank […] you Barbara for making my stay a GREAT one!

"Wish it were better"
Location is great as long if you don't mind a few homeless hanging around the walk between the hotel and Jack London Square. TV was new but very pixelated and not in HD. The room smelled strongly of cinnamon air freshener. Three of the four washcloths were dirty with makeup stains, like they had not been washed. I wish this hotel would focus on these […] little things, then it would be perfect for when I travel for work. Another wish is that they had a little breakfast. Parking was an additional $15/night.

"Not a bad choice if you want to be near Jack Londo"
Rooms weren't luxury but they were not that bad either. It looked pretty clean, and it's a decent hotel to stay at if you are in the jack london area. The surrounding area might not be the best if you wonder too far. Parking does cost money, and it isn't locked or anything so the price for that isn't desirable, but at least it's better than being on […] the street. But by no means is it any safer. Overall, not bad but a little pricey. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"I should have stayed in SF"
The people working here were very friendly and helpful, and the room was comfortable and clean. Located near Jack London Square, but in an area that is run down. We stayed here hoping to save some money, but after tolls, and parking in SF, I paid about the same.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A comfortable motel with a nice pool area. parking easy access. pretty quiet. low key experience. near the train, and a short walk to BART.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place is great. The lobby is not inviting and needs to be updated but don't let that fool you. On the other side of the elevator is a very cute, clean and well maintained building. All the rooms wrap around the pool. It's warm... Has a good feeling. The room we had was very clean and had been updated recently. Not a fan of the paint color but again […] a great value. We did not have any issue with rain noise although we heard them in the morning. This is an old building, yes, but the keep their property up very nicely. The area is also fun and hip. We sat on the water on out last morning eating excellent bagels one block from the hotel. Then we hit an awesome farmers market only 2 blocks from the hotel. This place is worth it, a great value and close to be Bart also! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Apple green walls, clean and free wifi- pleasant!"
I was pleasantly surprised by this inexpensive and easy-to-find hotel in Oakland. It worked just fine for a one-night business stay. The sun streamed in the window, which I could easily open for fresh air, while I worked at my desk with FREE internet access (hint to all you over-priced hotels!). Nice pool in the center courtyard, easy going customers […] (no loud parties), birds chirping, very low key and clean. Fresh apple green paint on the walls and comfortable bed.
