Had an excellent four night stay here while on a business trip Changed room after one night because I needed a bathroom with a bathtub Check-in and check-out were both smooth

Staff was also friendly Both of the rooms I was in had good views and most things folks would need for this stay – even a microwave, which is rare I can easily recommend this place The location was also excellent to walk to any central Oakland spots

Allen Wickham

Another good Hampton Inn experience, this time in downtown Oakland I love this area, given its proximity to the BART, Oakland Chinatown, to the bay (check out Jack London Square!), and lots of great food Similar large and spacious areas as the Red Bluff hotel and good breakfast choices

In order to ensure you get your ADA room, make sure you call them, since our reservation via a online resource did not communicate the need for a wheelchair room Our initial interaction with the front-desk was not helpful, but the manager was able to switch our room for an excellent ADA room, with a good roll-in shower and a great toilet The only drawback was the shower seat was tilted down, which necessitated getting our backup shower chair

Victor Sanchez

We stayed here to come to see Smokey Robinson at the Paramount Theatre The hotel is all modernized and very clean The staff is very nice and friendly

I also like the fact that the Valet service takes your vehicle to a Private Locked parking lot The tv was bit hard to figure out since the settings did not state the channels and delayed on every change made But overall was great quality The only thing we did not like was the time it took for the water to warm up when you need a shower We will definitely return here next time we come to the Paramount Theatre as it is only down the street

I enjoyed my stay, although I only was there to sleep It was okay fot the price, the room was great The greeter for night time check in was absolutely rude, he was an older gentleman

We couldn’t really hear him because he was mumbling, we politely asked if he could repeat and he yelled at us Not okay Wanted to say something but I was too exhausted from being at the hospital with my new bornBreakfast was OK Was very little choicesOther than that beds were comfortable Bathroom was beautiful And it was clean

Bonny Bowen

Very nice place, VERY quiet on the bay side City view will be of the freeway King bay side room was spacious with nice view and a balcony

We were here almost a week, breakfast was a disappointment (biscuit sandwich, made fresh) final day they brought back waffles YEAH! Be aware this is not a nice neighborhood, they charge $15/night parking to pay for a security guard (be glad they do)We would stay here again:knowing we would not go out after darkdon’t leave anything in your carleave the area during the day

Gregory Powell

Update on 6-15-2022 Pool and hot tub are closed by the health department No ETA given for when the pool and hot tube might reopen

This is main reason we chose the hotel This is a very nice hotel and very close to the water Parking Security at night which is a bonusUpdate on 6-17 the pool and hot tub are open, and the hot tub is actually warm

I’m writing this review for my cousin He was treated very badly! I don’t think this is a word but that’s the point to what happen last night My cousin said he came in around check in to check in on the room

(Pablo) said that the room wasn’t ready So my cousin went and chilled in the parking lot Than went back inside and had Pablo ran his card but the moral of the story is he didn’t get a room Make sure you don’t deal with Pablo If you were having a bad day please don’t take it out others

Rosalind Khim

After a long day of travel, we arrived at the hotel very late at night via the complimentary airport shuttle bus We were warmly greeted by the front desk clerk who asked us to make ourselves comfortable as she helped another family secure a room for the night Apparently, the family’s reservation at another hotel had fallen through, but she was able to help

She was kind and mindful of the late hour and serviced everyone as quickly and efficiently as possible In no time, we were all checked in, given room keys and on our way to enjoying our comfortable, spacious and clean rooms So glad we chose Comfort Inn & Suites

Chris M

Good hotel The front desk staff was hilarious The rooms were clean and very nice

The TV had soccer so I could watch the World Cup games One of the elevators needs a little maintenance It’s a bit old, but felt safe The area is a little sketchy and the hotel is hard to find from the street That is my only gripe with it Parking and WiFi was included which is great!

This hotel is great for vacations or get aways The rooms are cozy and clean The staff are very professional and welcoming

They take Covid protocol seriously The continental breakfast that is included with your stay is delicious The pool is heated and clean, not to mention the view of the Marina is gorgeous My family really enjoyed our stay We will definitely return

Jason Matsumoto

I stayed here for almost 3 weeks It was a pretty good experience overall Some of the front desk staff were friendly and warm, while others weren’t so much

The rooms are above average, but not awesome I witnessed a car being broken into while looking out my room window one afternoon and then went down to the lobby to report it and the manager asked me to call the police, rather than him calling them, which seemed very weird and off putting They also rented the meeting room out to some sort of party with a DJ on a Saturday night, resulting in plenty of bass reverberating throughout the property until late evening Breakfast has make-your-own waffles and toast, some pastries and such, boiled eggs, and not much else The walls between the rooms aren’t the worst, but you can still hear the TV and voices in adjacent rooms While the property is directly on the water, the marina is in a state of disrepair and the area is not the best place for walking around after dark It’s fine and even quite pleasant during the day, though The main thing going for it is the overall value – it’s one of the best priced places in the area that is actually decent I’ll stay here again if I want to save a few bucks over some of the other places in the area

Bob Morris

What I can say is that they went out of their way to pick us up after hours with the shuttle van Van service is up to 7pm The room was nice sized and the furniture looked good

The bathroom had a good sized shower The problem for us was that bed was too hard and the same with the pillows The breakfast could have been better, too! We were expecting a view of the marina, but it was of the parking lot The marina was within viewing when you are outside Based on what you want, the staff was very friendly and helpful

Pete VR

Comfortable bed The desk is a little narrow which is important for my work trips Friendly staff

No complaints with other amenities (towels, soaps, shower) I’d recommend this place Valet was reasonably fast With the exception of the coffee shop attached to the hotel, there are good dining options within walking distance Regarding coffee shop, black coffee was bitter and if I didn’t need the boost I would have poured it out I can also appreciate/understand that some places have to mark up food prices, but $4 for a grocery store cup of yogurt is excessive I should have stuck with the $6 breakfast burrito

Jess Brant

This review is difficult to write because certain aspects of the hotel are great and others are notRoom – We stayed in the nicest sweet with the exception of the penthouse, we stayed in the Jack London Suite Great size room

great layout however there are quite a few issues with the room First off the bed is extremely uncomfortable to the point where we cut our stay short by one night because we could not get a good night’s rest Second issue the sofa bed our daughter was going to sleep on was zip tied shut (no exaggeration) During our stay there was also a shortage of pillows and blankets For the room we could only get four total pillows and three blankets when I called down During my travels this is the first time there has been a shortage on pillows and blankets Another issue I had during our stay our room was never cleaned or turned downStaff – The staff is great!Location – Location is great very close to the ferry that takes you across the bay to San FranOverall review as others have stated on here, you are better off staying at a different hotel which isn’t dated/worn down The amount we spent during our stay, we also paid for the last night we didn’t even stay in the hotel Despite me bringing the issues to management there was a lack of a empathy

Paige M

The locations and views are wonderful Staff is friendly I upgraded my room and that’s where the issues started

The first room’s heat did not work We were moved to another room It was just dirty, which I noticed the next day after our late night move I brought it to front desk attention, but the report there was really nothing they could do I have reached out to Hyatt It looks so nice online and lobby is adorable Just frustrating!Edit: manager reached out and was very helpful

This hotel is great The rooms are nice, clean, and comfortable The staff are very friendly and very helpful

The breakfast is a full, hot breakfast as of now (July 2022) and it has plenty of options The only downside is how far away from San Francisco it is, but it is within walking distance from a BART train stop that can take you all the way into the city I overall highly recommend this hotel

Jenni Reich

Recently we had a wedding at Lake Chabot and we stayed here along with our out-of-town guests (6 rooms total) We were extremely pleased with everything Rooms were great, breakfast was great (we loved the pancake maker), and we had one RV in the group and they were permitted to park near the parking lot exit with no issue, which was awesome

(There is a parking garage underneath the hotel and maybe ten spaces next to the building, so parking could get tight if they were really busy, but we had no issues) One evening our group wanted to gather in the breakfast area just to sit and be social, and the staff had no problem with us using the space, and moving a few tables and chairs (which we put back when finished) They even turned on extra lights for us Overall, we were all very satisfied with our stay Fresh popcorn daily and warm cookies one evening were a bonus! The pool was open and clean and used by a few in our group Reserving the rooms initially was a headache because the manager does not return phone calls (my only gripe) However, the front desk gal was able to take care of everything for the booking, including the group rates and individual confirmation numbers for each room Easy peasy Thoroughly satisfied customer!

They made extra charges on our creditcard without any invoice, without prior information and without questioning, totally illegal

I wrote them to claim but nothing, so now I have a claim with booking com help and also I made legal steps with our lawyer Be carefully with this hotel! Also the breakfast was terrible, disgusting the place not bad, but seems the direction board of the hotel are terrible

Isabel Cisn

I just want to thank front desk attendant that was attending us on the day that we checked in Roberto for being so kind and understanding we came really far and he was very accommodating towards us and also thank you to the housekeepers I didn’t get their names but they deserve recognition they were very attentive with us and made sure that we were OK in our hotel the hotel is absolutely beautiful and thank you to everyone who’s been very kind to us definitely a new customer that’s is going to be coming very often thank you again

Jean-Paul Watson

Biggest plus for this hotel is being only 5 minutes from OAK It’s a reasonable Hampton Inn, if a bit older Nice lobby and bar area

Rooms were 4/5, only to be dinged for being probably 10+ years old w/o renovation Front desk check-in was efficient, professional, and pleasant Some decent restaurants are about a 5 minute drive away Nice bonus to be on the walking path along the water front – lots of bird and sea life to see At the end of an OAK runway, so there is some overhead noise – but not nearly as much as I expected And it didn’t impact sleep

V Maxeno

You get what you pay for, the room are pretty outdated and it smells oldYou are far from everything, and in the middle of an industrial areaThe bistro is not worth counting on for your dinner!The staff were nice, breakfast was very decent, and the rooms facing south/west have a very nice view, apart from planes taking off a few hundred feet away 😉


The worst Hilton experience we’ve ever been through They canceled our reservation because our card declined? (which is a lie because we got a confirmation number and a receipt) It was a room for 2 nights and we reserved it for mid day but we arrived late at night Since it was a 2 night reservation it’s standard that as long as we’re paying we can come in whenever

This was not the case! There was a warriors game going on and they immediately gave our room away without notice or any email, text, calls, etc They did this so they could charge higher rates to someone else The reception was also rude and not accommodating, it was clear they were lying because their story kept switching up on why they canceled

Night desk help was very helpful and friendly, morning team seemed to be bothered by us checking out Especially the gentleman that kept coming out from the back office! Stayed both before we flew out and when we returned We had the same experience both times

Hotel is being renovated (really needed!,) so some rooms are nicer than others Great water pressure and lots of hot water! Could be the morning staff deals with construction complaints more than night crews and thus the grumpiness First night was on the first floor, Window locks didn’t work Was a little worried since the hotel has a giant security fence around the perimeter No maintenance staff for the evening so we used what was there to secure it Slept better on the plane the next day LOL! Very convenient to the airport and understand hotel is being renovated I am sure it will be back to what is was in no time

B Weber

Southwest Airlines screwed 56 of its customers and put most of us up in this hotel The hotel was fast, efficient, and had two people working the front desk once we finally got to the hotel They had a small free shuttle to and from the airport and given there were so many of us rescheduled to fly out at 6am the next morning, provided uber rides to ensure that their guests arrived back at the airport on time, early the next morning

They provided us with comfy beds, a hot shower, and had a quick grab-and-go breakfast ready with hot coffee Kudos to the two PM workers and especially the night shift front desk staff member who worked his tail off to ensure a smooth morningThank you for making our unanticipated stay a little more bearable

Jacqueline Villaver

We checked in around 5:30 pm on Sunday May 8, and found out that the shampoo, shower gel and coffee condiments (sugar, cream, etc) were not refilled We asked the front desk for refills but unfortunately, the housekeeping was gone for the day

However she was kind enough to give us a shampoo in a plastic cup I haven’t experienced this on other Holiday Inn Express locations The breakfast was good but that’s about it I don’t think I’ll be coming back to this hotel when we visit Oakland again

A Starbucks in the hotel, breakfast made to order, & a bar w dinner options The area seems to be going through a rejuvenation with new construction and flowering trees You can tell that they are diligently making an effort to improve the area Quick access to highway 🛣 I had a large room with a great view of pool & sundeck Like 👍🏼 & follow for more adventures ✨️ Travel well 47Million views and counting 😊Thank you 😊

Nathan Travers

It’s what you would expect from Holiday Inn Decent rate with a good room My only complaint are the curtain styles that they use, they don’t block all the light in the morning

Other than that, the The bed was very comfortable and the room was a good size and clean The best part is it’s located right next to a movie theater and a bunch of restaurants and places to eat


The room was clean and comfortable The breakfast was great However, at about 9pm our smoke alarm started chirping everyone minute or so

The front desk person said they could have someone fix it the next day When I pointed out that I wouldn’t be able to sleep, I was told to remove the battery myself I pointed out that was a safety issue and they gave me a battery I had to stand on a rolling desk chair to figure out how to change it I’m lucky I didn’t break my neck The new battery didn’t fix the problem so I was told to totally disconnect it This seems to be a HUGE safety issue for everyone in the hotel Also, how is it that they have nobody on staff at night to handle basic things like this?

Wonderful place to stay It’s got a 24-hr gym and an outdoor swimming pool Both indoor and outdoor lounging areas have comfortable furniture

The hotel is fairly secured with access gate People can still climb over the fence (6ft high?) I gave it a 4-star because there wasn’t a full restaurant inside and it’s expensive Fortunately there was lots of restaurants nearby Also the rear entrance door slam shut really loud; they should adjust it Also my room’s bathroom door couldn’t be closed fully; something was wedging it Otherwise, everything was clean and comfortable

Location is by the airport so convenient for early or late flights and if you just want to stay by the airport I was upgraded to a PURE wellness room so appreciated the upgrade There’s an air filter and the carpet and furnishings are supposed to be cleaned better than a normal room

I slept fine, bed comfy and air purifier not too loud but no that quiet either Other than that it’s good typical Courtyard room Room was clean and not too noisy being that it’s by the airportBeing that there is increased crime rates in the Bay Area at least the hotel recognized this and I saw a security guard both outside and inside the hotel For a traveler this may be off putting but in my eyes better safe than sorry

A great location right in the center of town Far enough from the freeways so there’s little noise but close enough for easy travel The rooms are well decorated and very clean

Large gym if you’re in to that thing lol Pool has lots of seating and plenty of shade Full continental breakfast was better than Denny’s Staff was lovely and accommodating from the GM on down The GM told me he wished we were staying longer so his little stuff could play with ours I told him that his pet area was perfect Definitely would stay again
