Local from Berkeley, California

The Inn at Jack London Square is your basic hotel. A little more fun than the big chains (the pool is painted like a giant compass and the colors are wacky), and small enough to have an almost family feel. The front desk and cleaning staff are all friendly and dynamic -- they seem like real people (which I take as a sign that it is a reasonable place to work).

The workout room is all glass and overlooking the outdoor pool.
Ask for a king size room with a balcony overlooking the pool!

The Inn is right across the street from Souley Vegan, a quintessential Oakland hipster eatery, with great food and huge portions. Next door to that is another great: Beer Revolution, featuring local brews. On the other side of the Inn is an Adult entertainment shop, summing up the eclectic mix that you should expect staying in Jack London.

This hotel is very convenient if you are in the area to visit the famous Jack London Square or just want to be near the water, the ferry, the Amtrak train and the very many restaurants and bars in that area of sunny Oakland. The lobby is pretty small, but once you are inside the hotel you realize it is a pleasant spot, with clean rooms, comfortable beds, and a very inviting pool. There is free wi-fi and they offer parking for a fee.
There is a restaurant attached to the hotel called The Buttercup. I didn't eat there, but heard patrons rave about how great the coffee was and how the portions were so big.
If you stay here and want to visit San Francisco do take the ferry and enjoy a ride across the bay.

First to Review

The Inn At Jack London Square is right by a movie theatre, bars, restaurants, and just down the street from the Waterfront. The Inn has a 20 dollar a night parking lot and there's also cheap indoor parking nearby. The staff is some of the most welcoming front desk staff I'd ever encountered. The lobby isn't a place that has a lot of room to sit and spend time, but there's a big courtyard with an under-renovation pool and a small fitness center overlooking it. Rooms are average size but very clean and well maintained. The Inn doesn't look so special from the outside but it's a great choice for staying in a fun beautiful area of Oakland near downtown and the waterfront, especially for families who need places to meet up and relax by a pool. Downtown is a short 10 minute walk away to the 12th st BART stop.
