Inn at Jack London Square

First off, both rooms we occupied were well kept and clean. The only small, incidental item is the tub on the 2nd visit had fibergalss peeling and there was no refrigerator The staff were quite helpful and friendly. Someone in the office 24/7, so felt safe. The Buttercup Cafe on property had very down-home cooked meals with local clientelle...that tells me they have good food!

Great pool area, comfortable room

The pool area was a nice oasis in the heart of Jack London Square (though the pool water temperature was pretty cold and took some getting used to). Room was nice, clean, and medium sized. Location was walking distance to many great restaurants, an excellent beer bar, the waterfront, ferry to San Francisco, and a slightly longer walk to BART.

Great Location

We stayed here due to its proximity to the Ferry Building. We take the Ferry to Giants games. It is a great location and walking distance to everything you might need.

Pleasant

The room was clean and comfortable, and the area was nice to walk around.The bed was comfortable. Parking was secure and convenient. The downsides are that the hotel does not have breakfast on-site, the shower was a little low for my husband's taste (he's 6'2"), and there are train tracks nearby. If you're a light sleeper, it might be a problem, but it didn't bother us. Overall, we'd 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.

I suggest getting some pie from Buttercup Grill, which is adjacent to the hotel. Their coconut creme pie is to die for.

Motel Where you pay for parking

Expensive for location. My wife would not walk around at night. A glorified motel where you pay for parking. Felt like locked in fortress in bad neighborhood. A good value at half the price.

Good for the Price

We had a one night stay at the hotel. The location is good, being near Jack London Square. The hotel is nothing fancy, but we found it clean and quiet. An overall good value.
