Local from Berkeley, California

I was pleasantly surprised by the sense of grandeur in my room at the Imperial Inn. I suppose I should have known by the name! I was in room 204, which I recommend. Further from the street, tucked into an inner courtyard, I could look down on the fountain in the courtyard. The staff at the front desk was friendly and no nonsense -- not making idle chatter but still making sure you have everything you need.
I enjoy the style of the place -- a sort of timeless retro that is perfect for nostalgic California. All rooms have bathtubs, which is nice for families. Really close to Bart and parking included, this is a great location for exploring the East Bay and SF. I recommend the Imperial Inn!

The Imperial Inn is a good option if you are just looking for a place to sleep while visiting Oakland, the East Bay or even San Francisco. It is a basic inn with good customer service and a great location near MacArthur Train Station (15 minutes to San Francisco) and many bus lines that can take you all around the bay.
The customer service was good, the young lady at the Front Desk was very helpful. There is a small business center right in the lobby, a sitting area, free parking, free wi-fi, and a microwave and mini-fridge in the room. Some of the rooms overlook the quiet courtyard, but I thought the whole place was reasonably quiet for the area.
While here, make sure you walk north to the Temescal area of Oakland, everyone loves the many eateries and indie fashion stores in that area.

First to Review

Imperial Inn isn't in a terribly exciting area of Oakland to explore but it's an easy drive to places to visit. I did find parking easily in their parking lot. The aesthetic of the Inn is more "motel" than cozy inn-the only real exciting visual is a central fountain. However, rooms are more than adequate and clean (the room I was in had a large king bed and plenty more space). There's also wifi. The area around it is a bit loud off of main roads. I also noticed a lack of a view-out the window was a Carl's Jr.-not much to look at. Expect your typical roadside motel and you'll be fine. Expect more and you'll be disappointed.
