1st time visiting Oakland and SF. This property was easily accessible. We could have turned in our rental car at the airport before we arrived. They provided shuttle service to and from the pier for the Ferry to San Francisco. Airport shuttle was also available.

Outstanding! Water view was worth it. Breakfast was good and the view for breakfast was a plus. Location was close to freeway, but in water view room, could not hear the noise. Shuttle service was great. Bottom line: all in all, I would stay at Best Western Bayside, Oakland CA again!!!

First of all, I didn't make reservations, but the front desk Laurence were able to give me two rooms at a very reasonable price.

Also, the breakfast...

Perfectly situated right off the freeway and 10 minutes to the airport. This hotel sits along the bay which in itself is a selling point: water view, birds, boats, sunshine. The reception was welcoming and the referral to Quinn's Lighthouse for a light bite well worth a separate review. We upgraded to corner room which was twice the size of...
