As our son was getting married in Alameda, we had a large group of people coming in from out of town. The combination of having a hotel van that will drive you within 3 miles, and also having some "lounging space" called "The Library," where we could hang out (they even gave us a tray of wine glasses!!) was PERFECT for our needs. I didn't want family to have to rent cars, and we wanted to use public transportation to go into SF, so we used the hotel van, and really only had to wait 25 minutes one time at the BART. Kayla and Dorothy at the front desk were so friendly and helpful with maps etc., and we owe a special thanks to Karla (there were 9 rooms full of us!!) for keeping the pancake machine (our nieces favorite :)) and eggs hot, and the breakfast area ready for us all. Russell and Carlos were our usual drivers, and Manuel was constantly working on fixing things, painting, etc......A BIG SHOUT OUT to JD Covarrubias because he runs a great operation!! If you want to stay at the Ritz, go ahead, but if you want clean, efficient, very friendly and really reasonable.....this is the place!

We weren't expecting much from an airport hotel, but Kayla at the front desk made it a great trip. We didn't know what to eat so Kayla told us about the Chinese food delivery. My wife woke up too late for breakfast so Kayla offered me a tray so I could carry breakfast to my wife. There were a few small glitches like in the fitness center the TV remote didn't work but otherwise it definitely was a great place to stay.

Had an early flight out of OAK next morning and needed some place close to stay the night before. Read reviews for here and sounded good. Check in was prompt and my request for top floor & quiet area was noted. Very friendly staff the entire stay. Room was clean, bright and comfortable. Breakfast buffet the next morning was typical HI Express which is great by me. Area was busy but staff kept up and food stocked. Had a great stay and would recommend this property to anyone. Thanks!

I stayed here from the end of January to May 2nd - I was in the process of relocating. It was truely a home away from home. The staff was friendly and made my stay very comfortable. Shuttle service is timely, rooms are very good, and Karla was always there to greet you with a smile and a "good morning" when I had breakfast. in my opinion there was a team and group effort to really take pride in this hotel by the entire staff. I would stay there again with out question.

We stayed here on an opaque rate, it was a disgrace.

The rooms were dated and small.

The aircon wall control had a 'sticky label' stating that it does not work.

An enormous aircon unit attached to the window didn't work in any way.

Staff were not considerate (banging on door at 2am).

The wifi - SLOW SLOW SLOW I could barely load the google home page. In 2014. 5 miles from Silicon Valley. Disgraceful.

It is also located next to a busy loading yard.

Room Tip: Don't stay here, just don't.

I stayed here with a group of co-workers on business for a week can not say enough about the excellent customer service. The hotel is exactly what you expect for the brand but the staff exceeds expectations. They provided us with some great restaurant recommendations, our favorite was Horatio's at the marina. They had an awesome surf/turf and lobster bisque and you are right on the water (be warned, you will be shocked at the prices but you get what you pay for). Burgermeister in Alameda was also a great recommendation. The hotel even provided us with a shuttle ride to and from the BART station so we could take the train to San Francisco for the day. It saved us a couple hours in drive time and a bunch of $ for parking. The hotel and rooms were always clean and comfortable. The breakfast was always fresh and different every day and they even had delicious cookies for us in the afternoon.

Don't hesitate to stay here and ask the staff for their recommendations, they are very knowledgable of the area and are very helpful.

We've stayed here numerous times. It is a typical HIE with clean rooms and adequate breakfast. They have covered parking for maybe 15 cars. The shuttle ride to the airport is maybe 5 minutes. The park & fly costs are reasonable, and the pick up service is quick.

Room Tip: We always ask for the first floor
