Very comfortable room and bed, friendly staff, good location near The Fox Theatre and lots of bars and restaurants.
No hot water to speak of, wifi only worked for about 5 minutes.
Strange experience altogether. Checkin gentleman was a little uncomfortably flirtatious while the morning staff person at checkout was unfriendly and curt. Elevator out of service and was only offered a free cancellation verses a discount. Incredibly noisy room, awkward layout. At $170 with tax, definitely not worth the overall experience. Would not recommend ot stay at again.
Good for folks looking for a quick and quiet stay.
The 'breakfast' left much to be desired.
The price was great.
There was quite a bit of cleanser left in the shower, but it was clean!
Affordable, clean and spacey rooms. Comfortable. No bath, but a nice big shower instead! :)
Complimentary breakfast is rather primitive. Saturday night was noisy as a band was playing in the bar next doors (Halloween). Around 1 AM everything was quiet. The rest of the week was quiet as well.
Older, restored hotel, convenient to bart, friendly, helpful staff
The bed was very much too soft, causing me lower back pain
There for the California Bar Exam and the stay at the hotel was pleasurable (more than could be said for the exams)! Polite attentive hotel staff. Well cleaned and comfortable rooms. Location is perfect with uptown a short walk away for business and jack london square a short walk the other way for restaurants.
Some of the desk staff was very kind, others unattentive. One of the lights beside my sink burned out and I told them, but no one ever came to replace the bulb. Also the toilet sometimes ran and I had to jiggle the handle to get it to stop. But in fact, for the price, I found the hotel to be fine.
The Washington Inn welcomes you to one of the safest hotel in Oakland offering elegant accommodations in a warm, inviting atmosphere with reasonable prices and excellent staff. It is conveniently located 2 blocks from bart station, which put it in easy reach of San Francisco and Berkeley. It was fairly quiet, safe, good in-room facilities, and clean.
