If you are looking for a good deal on a decent hotel in downtown Oakland, the Clarion is perfectly located. The rooms are clean, quiet and with comfortable beds. The complementary breakfast they provide is decent. Everyplace you may want to see in downtown Oakland...More

Despite a comfortable bed and an adequate room, this place is really a dump. The walls are paper thin - I could hear every sniffle, shuffle, and sigh from the rooms next door. At least they were thick enough to keep out the strong smell...More

Hotel is non-smoking, but has a strong odor in hallway and room of pot. Nothing worse than being in a hotel you can't wait for the night to be over so you can check out. Area has a seedy feel to it. Elevator seems rickety.More

I do not recall a microwave in the room we stayed in. The room was somewhat small and there may not have been a proper spot to place one. Whether any of Clarion's guest rooms contain microwaves, I'd ask front desk personnel.

Not really. But I will say that Chinatown is only a few blocks away and, for me, I didn't find the walk dangerous. The streets, however, can appear dark and empty with stragglers hanging out on the street corners. Also, just... More
