Good hotel, room location was poor

Our room was directly outside of the laundry room where the hotel staff work. They were extremely loud very early in the morning.

We are sorry to hear that your room location was less than satisfactory. Some guests prefer the convenience of being on the first floor & near the exit. However, this is not for everyone. Please reach out to us to place room location preferences on your reservation in the case you are sensitive to hallway activity. We also encourage our staff to be quiet as possible while being in the hallway. We will kindly remind them do to this. Thank you again for staying with us! Hope to see you again soon.

I had an excellent 5 day stay!

Location: The hotel was close to the freeways, Lake Merritt and easy access to downtown and San Francisco. A nice walking trail right along the waterfront
My room was spacious, clean and very comfortable! The staff were beyond helpful especially Faviola and Nikhil. The $15 steak dinner was A+ and so were the full breakfast. The waterfront view was icing on the cake.

A few nights in town?...Off highway 880?

The Executive Inn & Suites is the perfect place to stay. It's right on the water, close to Bart, and a Starbucks is nearby if you're needing your expensive coffee. The two queen bed suites are very nice. However, I found the shower with the glass partition rather interesting. I'm used to a shower door or curtain, but it got the job done! I did use the gym. It has the necessary equipment to keep you on your "away from home" routine. The complimentary breakfast is nice too. However, I did miss not having any bacon or sausage. The staff is very friendly as well. I give the place two thumbs up. Will stay there in the future when I'm in town.

Nice hotel convenient to the airport.

Pros: Location
Stayed for one night as we were flying out early the next morning. Only disappointment was internet said there were restaurants within walking distance. There was only one and the food was good. On a side note the hotel was cooking steak or salmon with sides for $15. Saw peoples plates after we ate and it looked great. Also they were willing to take us to Jack London Square, so we had choices. On a side note, the Oakland airport was a madhouse and not very organized early in the morning. Leave yourself plenty of time. It was the first time ever, after having ID checked with TSA, you stood in another line to get through x-ray in security. Total wait was about an hour.

Convenient, great rate, and very nice facility

Pros: Convenience, cleanliness, nice appointments, well decorated room, great shower.
Cons: More handicap spaces.
Location: Jack London Square. Home of Chicken & Waffles. Ferry lawn to watch the ferries. Nice boardwalk looking at the water.
Stayed one night while visiting family. Price was excellent (including the 15% taxes!), facility was very close and convenient to our visit, and we were impressed by the quality. The shower area looked brand new and hardly ever used, and was very nicely appointed. Following morning we simply turned left out of the parking lot (lots of parking available) and drove directly to Jack London Square for brunch, walk around, and a bit of shopping. Overall a great deal!!

Conveniently located hotel with good connectivity.

Pros: Location, Internet connectivity, room appointments.
Cons: Hot eggs for breakfast would have been nice.
My family travels with a lot of devices and staying connected is important. The room had lots of convenient power outlets and the WiFi was plenty fast. There was also an Ethernet port, with cable, but we didn't try that. The room itself was nicely appointed with glass coffee mugs, large towels and higher end shampoo/soap. The front desk upgraded us to a water-side room at no extra charge. There was a small patio with a couple of chairs and a nice walking path along the waterfront. Breakfast was good, even though we stay away from breads and cereals. Hard boiled eggs, sausage and fruit worked for us and the coffee was good.

A surprise hotel

I will admit I have stayed out in Oakland before and stayed in nice places but this one was a surprise. I didn't look to hot on the outside but the everything else (with the exception of the breakfast bar) was great. I will be back next year.

Accommodations that are actually accommodating.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet, shuttle service to airport or surrounding area, mon- wed complimentary cocktail hour
Excellent staff and shuttle service is very accommodating. Shuttle will take you to the airport or surrounding areas like Jack London Sq, which is very handy to prevent getting lost, avoiding a rental car and allows a little wine with your dinner. Rooms are large and the water view sunrise and sunset over the estuary is magnificent. Highly recommended for their Park and Fly service when using Oakland as your airport of choice.

Two different buildings = two different experiences

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet, shuttle service
The reviews here are VERY divergent because there are two distinctly different buildings. I've stayed in this hotel about 10-12 times for business. I've never stayed in the "old" building. The suites building is excellent. Rooms are large, there's a manager's reception with wine and heavy hors d'oeuvres each evening, and each room has a fridge and microwave. The hotel staff has never been anything less than highly accommodating; I love the shuttle service. Miguel, Roberto, and Byron are great. The hotel has a very friendly relationship with members of the Oakland Police department; officers frequently stop in to use the business center or get coffee in the lobby which provides an extra layer of security. The fitness center (again in the suites building) is decent and the business center is quite good. You cannot go wrong with a stay on the Suites side.
