Location of hotel was nice as it is located on the water/bay. Room was very clean but too small. Bathroom was clean but vanity was too small. It was difficult for two people to use space provided. Responsiveness of staff was good.

The room we are in right now is noisy. The road noise is ridiculous. We have to use ear plugs to get any quiet. In addition, you can hear the people above us, Room 254, walking back and forth. It's like a bad apartment building. I won't be staying here again and we have another night to go...

I have stayed at this hotel 4 times now and will keep going back. It is a good location for my business trips and several other key points bring me back. First, the staff is fantastic, friendly and welcoming. Great job on that. Second, location. If you can get the room with the harbor view, it is really nice and...

I'm usually a huge fan of Homewood's, but this was a huge disappointment. The hotel is not in the best area (highway out the front door and nothing within walking distance). You really need to have a 'waterfront' view. It could be nice, but to see the water, you need to look past all the stray cats walking around outside...

I generally love Homewood Suites but this one was terrible. The staff were rude. The hotel felt very dated. The breakfast was terrible. With all of the hotel options out there I would never stay at this hotel again.

My room was very nice but also very hot. I asked for them to fix the A/C. When I returned to my room, the temperature was 88!!! It was like a sauna. I was unable to sleep in the room as they could not figure out how to lower the temperature. Left something behind, called, was told it had been...

Was there for work training. Good breakfast variety, light dinner with beer and wine in the evening, waterfront dining, sit outside when weather is nice. Short walk to the German Beer Garden/restaurant nearby. Try to get 3rd floor, first floor street facing rooms encounter headlights shining into them at night. Traffic is pretty loud on highway side. Very convenient shuttle...

Vancouver, Washington
Reviewed 14 January 2016

There is nothing that stands out about this hotel. Rooms were just OK; bothersome how dirty edges of bathroom floor were. Beds were a bit saggy but OK. Breakfast was also just OK--not a lot to offer, and radio + two TVs first thing in the morning equals too much sound and not a pleasant surrounding for breakfast.

This a a very nice hotel; great staff, excellent breakfast and it is on the marina providing a great view. The website advertised queen and kind beds, however, our bed was a full. This did not impact our stay but the hotel should advertise correctly.

I think the service and cleanliness of the Homewood Suites is just fine, and probably deserves to be ranked high for Oakland. We stayed here because we were visiting family who reside in Oakland, and we spent Christmas with them. We did not have the weeknight social, and so cannot comment. The breakfasts are good enough -- I have had...
