The only thing we liked is its location, right next to Jack London Square. The bathroom is tiny and outdated. no tub for my children. Advertised "city view" was actually view of the back alley/parking lot. $25 valet parking was mandatory, no self parking. not going to recommend or stay there again.
Lovely evening meal at restaurant having a limo called for us when we had asked for a cab!
The location is nice, good restaurants within walking distance in the area. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the wine & cheese hour was a nice touch. Everything was great with the exception of the thin walls, which unfortunately makes it a deal breaker for me.
Everything was perfect. Except the breakfast at the attached restaurant was fairly expensive and the service was not superbre, but the hotel itself is a true pleasure to stay in.
The location in Jack London Square, fairly spacious rooms Unexpected noise of the Amtrack as it passed very close to hotel
Balcony, view, color, staff, proximity to office. told it'd be $20 for valet, but valet told me $25. I was charged $20. train sucked.
There is a shower only, no bath. The wall is thin. The noise were heared from the adjacent rooms or the passage. The room is narrow.
Clean rooms, close to downtown Oakland, waterfront views. Thin walls and ceiling, could hear everything our upstairs neighbors were saying and doing, including peeing into the toilet! We were placed in a weird room right off the lobby and could hear people arriving and checking in. Was not worth the money we paid.
It's been years since I've stayed at Jack London Square. It's definitely gone up a step. Waterfront Hotel is an easy access location - both for driving and the train. Great restaurants both right in the Square and a short stroll away. The rooms are clean and comfortable and it was surprisingly quiet even with all the events during our stay. The ONLY drawback was the hallway maze to our room. If we just followed the numbers we eventually got there...but no two paths were the same. Our coffee maker was broken but they delivered hot coffee to us immediately on request. The TV was also out but the cable was replaced while we were out for dinner. Perfect service.
The room was incredibly dirty and the beds uncomfortable. To be specific there was an unflushed toilet with something not so pleasant upon our arrival into our room. Completely unacceptable. The television did not work either. I will NEVER stay at this hotel again.
The staff did a wonderful job. very friendly Parking and the cost to park no breakfast for guess
Cheaper alternative to the more expensive waterfront hotels in the area. Great food at the diner next door. Parking cost $15/day. You can hear people walking above your room if you're on the 1st floor.
Bunch of you kids partying at midnight kept complex awake and management did nothing to resolve matter
Comfy Beds, lots of parking, and quiet location. No waterfront entrance and only one entrance into hotel
Good place. Being renovated right now. Call before you book to see if they're finished.
No fault of the inn, but if you can't sleep through train whistles all night long, you won't like it. Otherwise no problems or complaints.
Service at checking and checkout is outstanding. The desk person was so friendly, offering additional information. That made our stay more enjoyable. Finding ice was tricky.
The inn was clean and it was less expensive than staying in San Francisco. The train is way too close and there are a lot of homeless people and sex workers around. The hotel is located in a strange area that has nice waterfront restaurants but also has a porn theatre and sketchy bars.
AJ was very accommodating and super helpful by getting us ferry times and recommending restaurants to eat. Extremely friends front desk staff. Room was very nice and we were pleasantly surprised to find a microwave and fridge in the room. We go into the Amtrak terminal late and walked to the hotel, not very far but still a little scary. Some people just asking for money.
This is a simple place with a nice courtyard and pleasant rooms. Nothing fancy but good. Central location. The furniture was a bit cramped for the space.
The location was perfect! A couple steps to the water front where you can board the fairy to San Francisco. Staff was friendly check in and out was easy, bed was very comfortable. room was a tad outdated but was still very clean and nice. Hidden parking charges and fees
Very clean. Friendly staff The price! It was described as a boutique hotel. Hah! A motel without the convenience of a refrigerator and microwave.
Our trip to jack london was great.the location was perfect there were plenty to do right outside our hotel.rooms where clean and bed where better than expected.front desk was the only down side we waited 1 hours because our rooms where not ready and we gotno apologies. Food next door at the butternut was great
Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Door handle didn't work. People living in vans in the hotel parking lot, getting drunk and yelling at each other all night. Bathroom floor was slimy/sticky. Cigarette burns in the comforter Just about everything (dresser, bathroom door, etc...) was broken or nonfunctional. Shower was gross. Toilet didn't flush properly.
Staff (the Hispanic one is good, the black girl was rude) were friendly and does her best to help. 1)The train passes right in front of the hotel, from 6am until 8pm-ish. Blows the horn every single time to warn drivers. 2)Hotel is in serious need of repair. Leaking faucets, damp carpet, ripped bedsheets., bad reception on tv. 3) no ice in the hall way 4) no towels provided until you asked for them
Bed was comfortable. Staff was very nice. There were food containers under the bed so can't say they did a good job cleaning the room. The Wi-Fi did not work at all. I was unable to work while I stayed there. I will not book here again.
Right across the street from Jack London Square. Next to Everett and Jones, Chicken and Waffles and a half dozen other great restaurants.
Air conditioner didn't work, no towels or TP in room when we arrived, dirty & train was in front of hotel that went by until 1:30am Leaving
Nice room size, friendly staff, free parking, continental breakfast, great location. Definitely would stay here again Our shower door didn't shut all the way so water leaked out.
The location is perfect. The website for the hotel is misleading completely.
SO FILTHY & GETTO PEOPLE HANG AROUND PREMISES. HORRIBLE SMELL IN & OUT OF ROOMS. WE HAD TO GET $ BACK & FIND ANOTHER PLACE, WOULDN'T HAVE STAYED HERE EVEN IF IT WAS FREE THAT'S HOW BAD IT WAS. SLIDING DOOR IN OUR ROOM TO POOL WAS CRACKED IN 3 PLACES WITH TAPE HOLDING IT TOGETHER. NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!
Location is great. Short walk to Amtrak, San Francisco ferry, next to restaurants & entertainment. Free Broadway Shuttle bus to Oakland BART station No Towels!!! No light bulbs!!! Desk staff said they'd send someone with towels & light bulbs. After repeated calls and promises of help, staff went off duty. Replacement staff said they were out if towels and had no one to help us. Rooms very dirty to boot. Pool in good location but empy
There was no hot water during my 3 night stay The complimentary breakfast was poor The door card did not work at times
Very close to great entertainment and downtown. Hotel staff was very accomodating. I was surprise they did not promote the dinner next store
Good price. Clean comfortable, no frills room. Attached to a fantastic country kitchen/soul food spot. When we arrived, they listed off everything they'd advertised that was under maintenance: the elevators, pool, gym, and air conditioner. If they had advertised these conditions in advance, I may still have considered it a good deal for the price but it was rough to get all that news after a long flight.
