Clean rooms, close to downtown Oakland, waterfront views. Thin walls and ceiling, could hear everything our upstairs neighbors were saying and doing, including peeing into the toilet! We were placed in a weird room right off the lobby and could hear people arriving and checking in. Was not worth the money we paid.
The location is nice, good restaurants within walking distance in the area. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the wine & cheese hour was a nice touch. Everything was great with the exception of the thin walls, which unfortunately makes it a deal breaker for me.
There is a shower only, no bath. The wall is thin. The noise were heared from the adjacent rooms or the passage. The room is narrow.
It's been years since I've stayed at Jack London Square. It's definitely gone up a step. Waterfront Hotel is an easy access location - both for driving and the train. Great restaurants both right in the Square and a short stroll away. The rooms are clean and comfortable and it was surprisingly quiet even with all the events during our stay. The ONLY drawback was the hallway maze to our room. If we just followed the numbers we eventually got there...but no two paths were the same. Our coffee maker was broken but they delivered hot coffee to us immediately on request. The TV was also out but the cable was replaced while we were out for dinner. Perfect service.
The room was incredibly dirty and the beds uncomfortable. To be specific there was an unflushed toilet with something not so pleasant upon our arrival into our room. Completely unacceptable. The television did not work either. I will NEVER stay at this hotel again.
Balcony, view, color, staff, proximity to office. told it'd be $20 for valet, but valet told me $25. I was charged $20. train sucked.
Lovely evening meal at restaurant having a limo called for us when we had asked for a cab!
Everything was perfect. Except the breakfast at the attached restaurant was fairly expensive and the service was not superbre, but the hotel itself is a true pleasure to stay in.
The location in Jack London Square, fairly spacious rooms Unexpected noise of the Amtrack as it passed very close to hotel
The only thing we liked is its location, right next to Jack London Square. The bathroom is tiny and outdated. no tub for my children. Advertised "city view" was actually view of the back alley/parking lot. $25 valet parking was mandatory, no self parking. not going to recommend or stay there again.
The staff did a wonderful job. very friendly Parking and the cost to park no breakfast for guess
convenient location when visiting SFO second visit in two weeks time, this time there was plenty of room at the hotel and the people at the reception could have been friendlier (they were not friendly at all), it did not happen on our previous visit.The room rates where much higher for some unknown reason.
Atencion excelente. Transporte desde el hotel al aeropuerto de Oakland, así como al embarcadero y metro. No
Tuvimos suerte y en la primera estancia hicieron upgrade al estar full bokked, las habitaciones del embarcadero son estupendas, las suites mejor ahn Queda un poco lejos del bart para desplazarse a San Francisco, pero te acercan en un van los empleados del hotel
La situación, el desayuno y el acceso a internet
El personal era muy servicial y cortés.
Limpio y cómodo Es demasiado caro para este mercado. Deben de ser de $60 a $75 la noche.
El gerente de noche que me registró era muy agradable y profesional Los pasillos olían a humedad
Buena ubicación No hay suficiente ayuda. Demasiado esperando
Lo limpio y cómodo que era que parecía nuevo Nada
Nos encantó la paz y la tranquilidad. No tienes que ir lejos para encontrar comida. El personal era amable y acogedor. Las sábanas no estaban totalmente limpias. Tuve que avisar para que las cambiaran.
Agua y manzanas en el vestíbulo. Y el servicio de transporte gratuito al aeropuerto, etc. La habitación daba a la calle y había ruido del tráfico.
Buen lugar. Está siendo renovado ahora. Llame antes de reservar para ver si están terminadas.
La ubicación era perfecta. A unos pasos del agua, donde se puede coger el ferry a San Francisco. El personal fue simpático y la salida fue fácil, la cama era muy cómoda. La habitación era un poco anticuada, pero aún así era muy limpia y agradable. Gastos de estacionamiento y gastos ocultos
Espacioso, ubicado a 20 min. de San Fco en ferry el que se encuentra a 300 mts del hotel. Prolijo y bien equipado,
I loved the room and the space in the room. When I walked through the hallway it smelled so good....awesome experience!
Staff was great took care of us and where on point which all the little details Needed more shampoo and conditioner!!...fit under my boob
Not safe !!! Had to park down 2 blocks in parking garage !!! No hotel parking like listing said !!! No deals like we were PROMISED FROM KYACK !!! You could tell our ROOM WASNT CLEAN...THERE WERE USED TOWELS EVERYWHERE AND WHEN WE CALLED TO COMPLAIN ALL THEY SAID WAS HUH THATS STRANGE !!!! Lame not worth it if your looking to go to a show and dont want to worry about your stuff...THEN DONT STAY HERE !!!! I work at hotels and this was by far one of our worst experince !!!
El tamaño de la habitación estaba muy bien, el personal es amable, el parking gratuito, el desayuno continental, muy buena ubicación. Sin duda me alojaría aquí de nuevo. Nuestra puerta de la ducha no cerraba bien, así que salía un poco de agua.
Justo al otro lado de la calle de Jack London Square. Al lado de Everett y Jones, pollo y gofres y media docena de otros restaurantes.
El trato del personal en general fue muy bueno. Las instalaciones no son muy lujosas. Ademas tuve problemas al solicitar ayuda por telefono al hotel. Al pedir un taxi para poder regresar a este no me ayudaron, dejandome solo en una estacion de buses a medianoche, en un pais extranjero. Aun con disculpas esta situacion es inaceptable.
Staff was absolutely amazing! Really respectful! And we were situated with our room with no complications. The room was not fully cleaned. The bathroom towels were wet. Trash was not taken out. Before giving someone a room make sure it's fully ready. Other than that we had a wonderful stay and we will return soon.
located close to the freeway The staffs lack of customer service.
I asked for a non smoking wheel chair accesible room at the first floor, they didn't have it! They gave me a smoking room without facilities for for a handicap person. Neighbors we're loud all night! Bad neighborhood!
The clean room and the excellent cleaning staff. The bathroom sink kept stopping up.
Staff is very nice no coffee at 05.30am
The free parking was a plus. Everything else! The towels in the bathroom were dirty, the tv didn't work, there was hair on the bed, the shower was filthy, everything in the room was breaking, the bathroom didn't lock, the walls were so thin you could hear the people next door talking, the free breakfast was disgusting, and the whole place was right next to the ghetto!!! This is the first time I have decided not to live in a Hilton or Sheraton and I regret it so much. Never coming back here again! I'm embarrassed for booking this place and making my friends stay here!
there was nothing worth liking at this hotel. The check in was dealt with in the most unprofessional manner I've ever seen in any hotel. The uneducated, complaining, screaming check-in staff would have been comedy material if it wasn't for the fact they were responsible for getting me to a good night's sleep. The hotel was very rundown, moldy curtains, loud banging air conditioner, drunk guests on the balcony and walkways at 3am, smelly rooms. Overalll - flat out disaster and not even worth 1 star.
Ilove how nice the staff was it was very easy to find it was bye the water I CANT WAIT TO STAY THERE AGAIN WASENT VERY MUCH PARKING GOT BACK KINDA LATE HAD TO PARK ON THE STREET MY CAR GOT SCRACHED
The location. The staff was incredible unprofessional and rude and there were bugs in the room and on the towels. Definitely will never stay here again.
Liked the flat panel TV and King bed Room had an odor
the Location to on the bay area was convenient for a business trip
Poor and not totally safe neighborhood. At the motel many occupants were outside their rooms screaming and drinking alcohol. Room stank with bad smell, Floor needed vacuuming. Bathroom too small. No privacy, can hear next room's tenants speak. Weekend price increased significantly, probably to accommodate prostitution nearby.
The staff was almost perfect. The front counter attendant was super friendly, courteous, and quick to check us in. His name was John and definitely was great. The location makes travelling to San Francisco fairly easy by car (25 minutes until downtown). The lake nearby (1-2 blocks) is very nice. The area doesn't feel ghetto, but definitely not super classy. There is graffiti/mural on the building behind the motel and it was so insanely gorgeous (my bathroom window had the perfect view of it). The place looks fairly maintained externally. Some Mexican guests next to us decided to blast some Mariachi/Folk Music at 2:30AM outside their room on an external speaker sitting in front of their room door for who knows what reason and we had to call the front desk and they handled the situation, but then our rude neighbors decided it'd be quieter to bring their speaker inside which made it even worse so after a second call the staff came to the room and told them in person to stop and then it was quiet. Situation was resolved in about 10 minutes in total. The paint is clean and doesn't look old and the outside of the building and parking lot also looked very clean. The staircases need some lights, both the adults (Sister and I) missed the last step coming down and luckily we didn't fall and just tripped. The bedroom we first got had hair on the sheets (I didn't personally see, but my sister had changed the room while I unloaded car and had a smoke). Our new room had used tissues in the drawer of the dresser. We had 2 Towels, 2 Washrags and 2 Hand towels for a 2 Double bed bedroom and it would definitely go a long way to do more washrags at minimum (I don't mind reusing towels, but not washrags and no washrag for face if you decide to shower). The floor had what looks like animal hair. So definitely if I had advice to this place, put out a ton of safety strips on the steps and lighting. Also, either fire your cleaning staff and hire some new ones, or start checking rooms they sign off on because they are not doing their job. Also, I would strongly suggest an enforced quiet time of 11PM weekdays and 12AM weekends and put a 1 warning policy before you kick people out. There are just some really small changes that would go a long long long way in improving the overall value in staying here. I didn't bother with the breakfast they offered (didn't even go in to look), but I heard it was pretty much slim offerings so a small variety increase would go a long way too.
Nothing had bed bugs I didn't like anything. It was awful
Relatively clean rooms, usual provisions (minus a coffee maker) Phone didn't work so couldn't call to tell them that the WiFi cut out every few seconds--when you're on business and have trouble accessing the internet while away, makes for an aggravating stay; shower didn't drain, so filled up with water; evening check-in staff were courteous but day check-out staff couldn't be bothered; ad said HBO---no HBO; people hanging out outside their rooms at night talking at the top of the lungs--good thing I brought ear plugs; Poor and not totally safe neighborhood---didn't leave room at all after getting back from being out
For the price it is so good. Maid service is not diarily
Even before I arrived I was impressed...they called me while I was on the road to inquire about my special needs (ground floor room only), and when I got there the staff was friendly and helpful, clearly Asian of some type but speaking excellent English; and then I got to the room. Amazing! It looked like it was 'fresh out of the box', clean and neat and very well appointed...a desk one can work a laptop at, a firm mattress and plenty of soft but sturdy pillows...and don't get me started on the glass-walled shower. I blanched a little at the price tag but I have to say, in the end, it was well worth it. Next time I visit the Emeryville/Oakland area I'll be staying there for sure!
Nice place. newly remodeled, friendly staff, free parking and WiFI
No frills, but cost was good. I would bring your own towels, like any hotel/motel they are gross. Bathroom was nice and updated, much space to put your stuff out. TV Location Parking Towels Noise Some people/area/location (shady) You had to be buzzed in and the check in pepilepsy were behind bullet proof glass.
The bed was pretty comfortable. The room looked very new. The smell was very strong -- an odor of the like you get with a new mattress. There should be more ventilation.
The bed was really comfortable and the room clean .Housekeeping was helpful!bathroom was cute Poor facilities such as hairdyer .Microwave . fridge....the location is far from downtown but the transportation is convenient.
Cleaned every day. Easy access to downtown. No problems with staff.cheap. It's not super quiet. I hear lots of traffic and loud people cross by the room but it is expected at a motel this cheap. Put the AC on to drown it out.
Me gustó que está cerca de oracle arena y el sistema Bart. Personal durante el día muy agradable y servicial. Gracias Jordan, John, y José, el conductor, que era genial. No me gustó que no hubiera desayuno continental para nosotros. El restaurante está muy bien, pero es caro. Literalmente no hay tiendas alrededor del hotel. Tienes que tomar el bart para ir a cualquier parte. Bueno para negocios in-and-out pero nada más.
