Jacks Oakland

Great hotel and great location. The paint and decor in the halls are a bit dated but the rooms are great. Would definitely stay here again.

I have two suggestions. If you want good food and lots of it at a reasonable price go to the Buttercup next door to the hotel. Only bad thing is they aren't open 24 hours anymore. If you plan to drive anywhere in Oakland especially to the stadium then leave hours in advance or just take public transportation. Took three hours to drive to the stadium which is only four miles from the hotel.

Good affordable choice

The Inn at Jack London Square is a perfectly good place for an overnight stop: clean, comfortable room, stable free wireless, safe parking, and right on the Square with walking distance to restaurants. There's a hotel with a similar name nearby which apparently is not a good place to stay. But this place -- The Inn at JLS -- is fine. Most of the rooms on the second floor were undergoing renovation while I was there, so the hotel is clearly investing in itself. The rooms surround a very large pool deck and a nice-sized pool that kids would love (though I was there on a mid-week overnight in December and there were no families that day). There's a restaurant in the same parking lot -- the Buttercup -- with a diner-style menu. My corned beef hash breakfast was good and the service was friendly. Honestly, if you need a no-frills but comfortable room for the night, you can't go wrong here.

Fun weekend!

For the price the room was great, very clean, staff was very friendly. Lots to do at Jack London Square, and lots of places to eat also.. They have the Farmer's Market on Sunday's, lots of great things to get buy.

Just fine, good central location

A little bit shabby, but functional (except when the fuses blew while I was ironing). Helpful staff, great location.

Hidden tresure

It is in a great location. I was able to book a room last minute with no problems. There was a little eerie feel walking through the parking lot. Maybe some more lights, signs, or staff to give more of a welcoming environment. I was also very fustrated with the shower head. Overall I slept well and had a decent room. The staff was polite and quickly to sum up any questions. I will be going back. It is truely a oakland treasure that needs a little dusting.

Enjoyed our Stay

We were confused between The Inn at Jack London and the Jack London Inn. Good thing we BOOKED HERE. The hotel was near the downtown area in Oakland and not a far drive from San Francisco. Parking was a bit pricey and should have been included with our stay, but overall the hotel did us well. The rooms were pretty small, but the beds were comfy.

Ordinary hotel

Clean, although small and quite old, room, Nice pool and gym. Unattentive front desk personnel. Close to Bay Bridge. Buttercup café next to the hotel. Expensive.

Trains, trains, trains

Take your ear plugs. There are trains that run continuously just one block so take your ear plugs! Also, the king size mattress needs to be replaced as both sides of the bed have a HUGE indentation where your butt goes; you can only sleep in the middle of the bed.

Not the greatest but not the worst

The walls are little thin and the staff are a little too lethargic it seems like. But the hotel is comfortable for the most part.
