Extremely nice hotel and staff. Will definitely being staying here again

Sparkling clean. Loved it. Guest service was amazing

Perfect hotel for the business traveler! The staff is very friendly and helpful, 24-hour coffee bar is a nice touch when having to keep odd hours and the breakfast service accommodates to multiple dietary needs.

This property changed me two times and no refund for now.. wth??

Loved the spacious and design of the room and lobby, nice bay view, friendly staff, and great parking location.

The grounds where not very clean. The walkway by the water was filthy with all of that bird poop. The bathroom tile had mold in between them. The staff was very nice , Very courteous, very very helpful. Especially Renee at the front desk of the best western plus Embarcadero in Oakland California. You have a very excellent group of staff there from the lady that does the food in the morning to the cleaning staff and Bill boys that bring you things you need. The hotel needs to work with the city to clean up the trash around the hotel.

Very accommodating and spacious room. We loved having a giant bath tub. Also the tea and coffee bar was nice too

Our stay was absolutely wonderful. The room (overlooking the water) was great; the bed was very comfortable, the room was large enough for a sitting area and a nice sized table and chairs. I enjoyed a wonderful evening bath in the large oval tub and the separate shower was roomy as well. The exercise room offered all the necessities; weight machine, treadmill, ellipticals, etc. They even supplied towels and bottled water (great touch). We really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast which included a wide variety of options like cheese omelets, sausage, baked goods, bagels, fruit, cereal, and even almond milk (which we very much appreciated). The entire staff (day and night shift) were very personable and friendly. Overall, our stay was great and we would definately stay here again.

Perfect. Away from downtown Oakland. 10 min drive to downtown.

Huge room and big bathroom. Great view. Decent breakfast. Totally worth it.

clean facility, very good staff, easy check-in and check-out

Great service; checked in quickly with no problems. Big, clean room & very, very comfortable beds & pillows. Nice little balcony with great close-up view of estuary. Staff was very accommodating & helpful.

Hey the best Western plus was the best my 1st time out in Oakland to see my Raiders and the experience I couldn't ask for more of a better tyme thanks I'll see ya next.year for sure

Staff were very accommodating. Room was spacious and bathroom was gigantic. Very pleasantly surprised! Loved it. The daily free breakfast was awesome value. Wasn't the typical cold cereal and toast. The hot breakfast varied each day. Well staffed and very scenic waterside view

This is a very comfortable hotel with a good breakfast, nice views and efficient staff. My king room was large with a seating area. It was very nice and in a surprisingly convenient location to downtown Oakland.

When we arrived in Oakland to a hotel that was absolutely disgusting, we had to scramble to find a new hotel. Luckily, we came across the Best Western Plus Bayside Hotel. They were completely accommodating to our last minute booking and offered my family snacks, drinks and a comfortable lobby to sit at while waiting for our booking to show on their computers. When we got our room keys, we were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and roomy space. Our beds were comfortable and we had a very nice view of the bay. The complimentary breakfast was good and there were many options for coffee, tea and juices. The staff was always very friendly. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much.

Nice room!! We had a great experience at this hotel!

Anon. Thank you for your feedback. We do clean the walkway everyday, as the geese do make a mess. We will consider doing it multiple times a day to assure it stays clean. We will also inspect our tile more thoroughly to assure cleanliness. We strive to be the best, and with feedback like yours, we are able to improve.
