We chose this hotel because we were departing on the Amtrak the next morning and wanted something convenient to the station in Oakland. This is a boutique hotel that has been recently taken over by the new management (the sign out front is still a temporary one hung over the old, permanent one). We arrived via BART after dropping off...

Liked the hotel--recently refurbished, price is right, staff very helpful and friendly. There is a nearby train that runs, so beware. I managed to sleep through it. Buttercup is next door, so there's available restaurants.

Boutique Motel, good location, nice pool area in center of motel. Staff friendly and accommodating. Had to change room, first one was looking out at construction netting and very small. Room with view to pool was much better. Hotel undergoing renovation. Old London Square gret during the day and weekend. Sketchy otherwise

Loved my stay here. Great location, nice rooms. Staff is awesome and did I mention the location? They have a very cool little restaurant called Buttercup Grill. Delicious food and great prices. Pool looked clean, the exercise room was nice. A walk to the waterfront is only 5 minutes.

Fantastic location - right by the Jack London Square district, ferry to San Fran, and few blocks from BART. Staff very nice. Room was clean but otherwise blah and Internet access bad. I'd stay there again but not my first choice.

Visiting the Oakland area? Your choices are either stay at a pricey hotel or a flea bag motel, not much in between. Good thing there's this place. Great location, just a couple blocks from Jack London Square. No frills but it's clean & comfortable. Parking is available on site for $20/night. It's currently under construction so upgrades coming soon! Reasonable...

We always stay here when in Oakland. Room are clean and comfortable. However, the construction is a major nuisance. Waking up at 5am on a Sunday to a man outside my window on a scaffold and plastic over my window was too much. Not to mention the elevator and lobby issues. The truth is I really want to recommend this...

If you're visiting Alameda or Oakland, this gem of a hotel is a good option. It's walkable to the waterfront at Jack London Square, and there are plenty of excellent restaurants and cute bars to visit. The Buttercup next door is a favorite breakfast spot of mine. They're currently doing some construction, but I look forward to going again when...
