Don’t stay here
Write up says Valet parking — NOT. Parking is 4.5 blocks away through a lot of street people. One waved a knife at me. Area is unsafe.

I'd go back there
Excellent customer service, clean but somewhat small single room, good complimentary breakfast

Very Good8.0
In Oakland for a business meeting
I stayed at the Clarion in downtown Oakland for one night. The location is convenient because the hotel is near the 12th Street BART station. Oakland is a dirty city in decline as is San Francisco. Nevertheless, the Clarion is reasonable and modest. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms are small, but adequate. I have stayed at the Clarion several times and will return in due course.

It's fine... that's about it
Overall, this is an OK hotel, but do not expect too much. The front staff was very aloof. It took 10 minutes to find my reservation. My key stopped working on a few occasions. There was a fire alarm in the late evening on Friday. The bathroom door doesn't stay open. The internet is mediocre at best. Overall, typical value hotel.

Fair4.0
Below average. Would not stay again.
Staff was not exactly friendly. Room was clean but comfort level was low. People smoked in the hotel even though it was a smoke free hotel. Breakfast was very, very mediocre. Wifi was fast and TV worked. Elevator was broken the entire time. I would not stay again.
