Basic and satisfactory

This is a no frills hotel a few blocks from Jack London Square. It is an older motel type building which surrounds a nice pool and deck. Thankfully, the windows face the pool and not the street as there were very loud motorcycles that seemed to circe the building into the wee hours of the night. Bonus: Unsecured, free parking is available on a first come, first served basis in the lower level of the building.

Good value

A little dated but this hotel is good value for its location just a block away from Jack London Square, the Amtack station and the ferry terminal. Good restaurant next door and a great BBQ place down the street 1/2 block (Everett and Jones at 2nd and Broadway).

historic surronudings

the inn at jack london square was a welcome respite after traveling for 18 hours. it is clean and spacious with a lovely swimming pool area, including a cabana! it has a great restaurant right next door, which makes it a very easy vacation harbor.

Not a good place if you want to sleep

This is a horrible place to stay if you plan to sleep. The railraod tracks are right outside the window. The entire night the train horn was blowing. Shower head is made for people less that 5'5. I'm 5'11 and had to crouch down to wash my hair.

Jacks Oakland

Great hotel and great location. The paint and decor in the halls are a bit dated but the rooms are great. Would definitely stay here again.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

I have two suggestions. If you want good food and lots of it at a reasonable price go to the Buttercup next door to the hotel. Only bad thing is they aren't open 24 hours anymore. If you plan to drive anywhere in Oakland especially to the stadium then leave hours in advance or just take public transportation. Took three hours to drive to the stadium which is only four miles from the hotel.

Good Value!

I had three rooms booked at the Inn and Jack London Square. Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, everything worked in the room and the staff was very helpful whenever we had a question. Overall - I will stay here again when in the area!

Not so good

Hotel has seen better days and was a bit creepy; somewhat smelly; and cheap. I had flight problems and ended up paying for a night i didn't stay, yet when i called to tell them i'd be late, they were just rude--place had that desserted past prime feel. Room itself was mostly clean, although the carpet was scary to walk barefoot on, towels and sheets seemed good. Very cheap on the incidentals--despite asking for extra coffeee (they provide ONE cup!), it was never provided; etc. would not stay here again. Internet did NOT work and that is a main reason for picking hotels for me.
