The hotel was nice. We really enjoyed the pool area. I was surprised about the fee for the parking garage, it wasn't mentioned when i booked our stay.

Sketchy dive motel

Dive hotel? Is that a thing? Did not feel comfortable drinking water, or getting in the pool, for that matter.

it hurts

Would not recommend Sun, May 17, 2015
The staff was so nice it hurts to write this. My wife nicknamed me Vinny from movie my cousin Vinny because of train whistles. On line info stated free parking, which was true unless you parked overnight duh, which cost $18. Of course, was told I could park on street overnight and came out to a $66 ticket. The hot water took about 2-3 minutes at least to turn from cold. Not enough and inconveniently located electric outlets. toilet paper was like sandpaper. Threw out wife's almost full bottle of water. Needless to say there were 16.9 oz of water in room for sale $2.75.

Trip to San Francisco

Would recommend Wed, May 6, 2015
My sister and I stayed at this hotel while were checking a school out in San Francisco. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Everyone that worked that was friendly and helpful. We had to pay for parking, but as it was rather secure we didn't mind. The restaurant next to the hotel was absolutely amazing! Neither of us wanted to drive in downtown San Francisco and since this hotel is within walking distance of the ferry we didn't have to. Overall we had a wonderful experience here and would definitely stay here again.

Decent hotel

Would recommend Sun, Mar 22, 2015
This is a no frills hotel in downtown Oakland. Don't expect anything extra like a mini-bar or a remote control that works, but do expect a bed and a bathroom. There is a really yummy vegan restaurant nearby, though.

Standard

Would not recommend Fri, Jan 9, 2015
It was a great location. Close to everything. It was by the dock's which was cool. Close to lots of shopping. But there was no food around at late times and no room service.

Money saver

Don't leave anything in your car.

Fun vacation!

Would recommend Tue, Dec 30, 2014
The hotel was great! We couldn't stay in SF due to several conferences booking up all affordable hotels, but this was a great alternative! We enjoyed a ferry ride in the mornings and evenings to get ti San Francisco. A great place to stay if you don't mind being away from the action and like a quiet hotel.

Entertainment hint

Plank is a restaurant/arcade just a couple of blocks from the hotel. The food is a little overpriced during regular mealtimes but the happy hour deals are great! And there's arcade games/bowling/bocce!

Good value for the $$$

Would recommend Tue, Dec 30, 2014
My family has stayed at this hotel many times. It's a good deal and great for kids, especially as they can eat well at the neighboring Buttercup restaurant. My main issue is that the workout room had several broken machines the last time we were there. Furthermore, the location of the room has changed to a glass-enclosed space so it's like working out in a fishbowl and extremely hot if the sun is still up. I really hope the management repairs and updates the cardio machines soon. Also, venetian blinds on the windows to block out the sun and the lookey-loos would be great.

Good value, no frills

Would recommend Tue, Dec 30, 2014
I've been coming to this place for about seven years. It was a great deal seven years ago and is still a decent deal today, except for holiday weekends when the prices are jacked up unreasonably high. Parking used to be free but now it's $17.00/ day. That can really add up. The fitness center used to be nice but now the machines are old and have been relocated to a small glass-enclosed space....kind of like working out in a fishbowl and a heated one when the sun beats down. Last time I was there, three of the five machines were broken and no one on staff seemed capable of fixing them. That was a huge disappointment. The Buttercup Restaurant is right next door. It's a nice place but could use some renovating, as could the Inn itself. The interior courtyard with the pool is very nice, especially when the flowers are in bloom.
