Shuttle dropped and picked us up from the A's game for free!

My family and I had an excellent stay at this hotel. The room was clean and the staff was very friendly.

I was very impressed with the friendly staff and the nice free breakfast. What impressed me most was the shuttle service. I used it twice. The second time the driver was on a break, so the manager stopped was she was doing, and took us to the airport. I was cranky and worried about not getting there on time, but she was very sweet about it. I left my phone on the couch too, and the front desk staff made a point to get it to me! Very pleased. For a quick overnight, it was perfect.

The staff hooked me up with late night calzone take out. Super friendly front desk! Very comfortable!

A very nice place to stay when you have to fly out the early next morning. The shuttle was prompt, the room was very comfortable and quiet. The only "problem" is that there are no eating spots close by (need car/taxi) except for Indian restaurant 3 blocks away. The food there was okay - you can take out choosing from about 8 dishes buffet style. Hotel has fridge and microwave for your convenience.

Great and quick pick up service from the Airport and Rent a car places. Very quick and efficient service. Breakfast was excellent in variety and quality, especially considering the price of the stay. Although the airport is right next to the hotel, the room was extremely quiet.

Front desk staff refused to extend check out time stating reached number allowed for the day

Hotel staff are pleasant and very accommodating,. We needed an early check-in and they worked with us to make our stay comfortable - ended up adding an extra day because of the location and friendliness of staff.

Hotel was ok. Positives, it was clean and safe, desk person was helpful. Negatives, two lights in my room did not work, view out my window was a cement wall, complimentary breakfast doesn't start until 6:30, and there is a $9 parking fee I wasn't aware of. There are not many quality hotels in the Oakland Airport area. This one is acceptable and safe, but I will look for another one next time mainly due to the breakfast not starting until 6:30am.

There was no ventilation in the bathroom. No exhaust fan or other type . The water in the bathroom sink and bath tub drained very slowly. Carpet in the elevator needed to be cleaned. There was a very poor outside scenery while sitting and eating breakfast. The window was blocked by an outside concrete wall.

We stayed at the HIX as a place to spend the night before flying out of Oakland. It was a nice place to stay. The hotel is older but clean and the rooms were spacious. The service was very good. The location is excellent for both the airport (via free shuttle) or the car rental return. We would definitely stay here again.

Hotel was nice and clean staff was good They had free food in the morning which was good Had to call front desk about 10:00 pm kids were Running across the floor in room above us after calling front desk the problem was solved. I would recommend hotel For family and friends I liked the distance for car rental And airport only thing is had to go to the bigger holiday inn Express to have lunch as they had no place to eat At the smaller hotel bigger hotel was about 1/2 mile from Smaller hotel would have liked to be at bigger hotel that Served food.

Staff was very friendly, person cleaning the elevator was courteous every morning and offered to carry our things, staff for the breakfast was nice and the options very very healthy. Room was clean, very conveniently located next to the airport, felt safe in the hotel

Not too many good options in Oakland. I suppose this one is the best of a bad lot. Nothing nearby, but convenient to the freeway!

Closest to airport yet quiet, on demand shuttle. Ideal for layover

If the room rate was under $100, maybe it would seem better but the price we were charged was way too much for the quality of the hotel.

Very close to the airport. Fast shuttle. Twenty minutes after walking off the plane I was in the room

Surprisingly nice given the area. The free buffet for breakfast was a yummy touch (no fruit except bananas, though). Stay on the third floor so you don't have to listen to someone stomping around. The doors are really heavy and slam loudly but I didn't hear my neighbors going in and out each time (except Thunderfoot upstairs).

The location worked out well for my purposes. I was happy with the staff and the room although the fan for the air/furnace was quite loud. Also, I set a lower temp in the room and when I returned the room was a good 10 degrees hotter, it was uncomfortable waiting for the room to cool off again.

Great place to stay with all the wonderful amenities. The price for the room was not too expensive, but the perks of staying here is the breakfast. Country biscuit, eggs, sausage, and much more. Quite good for a hot breakfast and taste even better when you have 4 people per room.
