A low value property, positioning itself as high price option. Granted not many options in the area. Still pricing and marketing does not match low quality of the property . Very disappointing. Rooms are old and low end hotel quality. Much better to stay out...More

The hotel is in need of a renovation. Jack Square is a nice little area but the surrounding area is very unsafe. Great location as it's right beside the ferry to San Francisco as you want to get out of Oakland.More
