"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

"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.

"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
"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
"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
"incredible pool and location"
fabulousGenuine Hotels.com 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.

"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
"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
"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
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
"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
"Don't let the surroundings mislead you"
Make sure you are checking into the Inn at Jack London Square (a little set back) and not Jack London Inn, not an attractive place. At first glance this hotel does not look very nice and parking is a problem (garage full and small outdoor parking shared with a restaurant) but quiet, nice staff, interior has a small but nice swimming pool.Genuine Expedia 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
"Clean and inexpensive but sketchy neighborhood"
The hotel is very old but in good condition. The courtyard / pool area was clean and nicely landscaped. Our room had the typical old fashioned layout with an external entry door and window on one wall and the bathroom on the far wall, with only toilet and tub behind closed door. No place to sit beside the beds and two uncomfortable side chairs. I don't […] personally like this layout but the room was OK for the price. I would not stay here again because I did not like the neighborhood but for a hotel in Jack London Square it is a good deal. We were not disturbed by train noise at all. We actually arrived by train and walked to the hotel. Also walked to Bart, ferry, and Jack London Square. All very convenient but I felt unsafe walking and would not do so in this neighborhood after 10pm. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Mid Century Chic - 21st Century Comfort"
Aside from a very convenient location, aside from very comfortable beds and pillows and a spacious room, this hotel is simply mid-century cool. I kept thinking I'd see a satellite clock on the wall. This two-story 1950s hotel wraps around a large courtyard with pool, shutting out downtown Oakland while providing privacy and security. Some cool restaurants […] are close by, including, get this, a vegetarian soul-food place across the street. A two block walk gets you to the waterfront, and a six block walk gets you to downtown Oakland. Although this hotel is obviously mid-century - it is also in excellent condition and well kept, with modern amenities. By the way, front desk staff were very nice and helpful. Can't say enough about this place. Personally prefer it over more expensive five star venues. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A gem and surprise. From the outside you aren't sure what to expect and then when you enter the courtyard pleasantly surprised with a well groomed pool and patio area. You wouldn't know that you were in downtown Oakland. You will enjoy your stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to Yoshi's"
This is my second stay at the Inn at Jack London Square. It is right across the street from Yoshi's Jazz club, so when I drive up from Southern California for a show, I stay there. I like everything about the hotel in addition to the convenience. The Buttercup Grill right next door is a great place for breakfast too.Genuine Expedia 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
"Great Hotel Staff, Location and Rooms"
This is our second stay at hotel, the location is perfect for Ferry and Jack London. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel staff is really the best part of stay, everyone is helpful and nice. I'd like to especially comment on the young lady who was working the evening Saturday shift, we had an incident and needed some emergency help; she stepped […] in and helped us out. Then also had folks come to room to help with some addtional cleaning etc. I can't thank her enough for all her support:) Read moreGenuine Expedia 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
"Great Find in Downtown Oakland"
This is a very nice hotel. Easy to get to, beautiful room, very friendly staff.Genuine Expedia 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.
