good stay

not a bad place for a quick getaway, served its purpose and loved everything around it. Seconds away from dowtown and alot of places surounding it, bars, movies resturants all within walking distance. You don't have to travel very far to have a day of all out fun.

Value for money

The Best Western was centrally located and walkable to the BART. Within walking distance to downtown. The fitness center and swimming pool were very well maintained. The rooms were very old and my room was quite musty. Cleanliness can be improved. In short - value for money - not too clean. The rooms can do with a lot of updating.

The average hotel

The hotel room was clean and the room size was average. A bit noisy from the kids running around the hotel late into the evening.

A nice couples getaway. Friendly staff!

An excellent place to stay right in the midst of Jack London Square. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the pool was lovely, and the access, check-in, and room presentation were spot on. The Buttercup, right in the same block, has an excellent and inexpensive breakfast. The only drawbacks were that the cleaning solutions they used had a strong chemical sent (this is hard to avoid, but worth mentioning) and that the bed was particularly hard and thus, for me, uncomfortable. The room was a bit small, but that's not a big deal for me personally. All in all a decent place to stay, and I would probably go back in spite of the bed.

Good for the price

We were happy with the little hotel near Jack London Square. The desk clerk, Barbara, was especially helpful with reservations that had gone awry. A free bus across the street took us to BART. Then it was a short ride into San Francisco. There is a great restaurant, the Buttercup, right next door. Good food and reasonable prices. We would definitely stay there again.

Good value near downtown

The reception at midnight was very pleasant and helpful. For its age and use, the hotel has been adequately updated. I thought the $15 8-hour parking was a bit steep especially since the garage was not nearly full. This hotel served its purpose for good value so near downtown.

Nice place in Oakland

The hotel offer a good experience. The staff was caring and offered advice on best attractions. Many have mentioned the train near by, but we did not find it loud. The lack of transportation to the San Francisco airport in the early morning was the only thing to consider when booking this hotel.
