Almost perfect in every way. We were a little surprised to have to pay for parking, although it is quite reasonable. Breakfast service was a little slow, as it has been in the past also. Dinner

My stay was one of the best stays I have ever experienced in a hotel. There were 2 of us in the room so having 2 king beds in our sleeping room was a bonus. From the shuttle driver, to the front desk check-in staff, Tony, (sales coordinator), banquet and restaurant staff, they were all very professional and accommodating would highly recommend his hotel To everyone!

Loved your hotel - the people, the food, the cleanliness, the parking on site which required a fee but we loved the comfort of knowing that things would be protected. Overall excellent. We'll be back.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappy5678 Gone Down Hill
Bad experience. Staff was not accommodating. A/C unit in room was not working and staff sent an unskilled employee to fix. Employee turned fan from auto to on and indicated that it was fixed. Worked for about ten minutes. Never resolved. When asked to speak to Manager the next morning, was told he was not in. Requested that he call us upon arrival at hotel in roughly 30 minutes. Never made contact with us. Prior to departure, asked again to speak with Manager and was told that he was in a meeting. Never able to speak with Manager. Stayed at this same location approximately six months ago and enjoyed the stay. Has gone down hill over the past six months. NOT RECOMMENDED

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joepilotpdx Always great except for one night
I have stayed at this hotel quite a few times. It usually clean and a great experience. However, on my stay march 9, 2014, my room wasn't as clean as usual. The floor hadn't been vaccumed and the bathroom had clearly been done very quickly and had streaks everywhere. Not up to par for this hotel. I have stayed since and it was back to being great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by travel14423790k Outstanding front desk staff
I have to say the front desk staff goes beyond the call of duty. They are truly nice and most friendly people I have ever found in a service industry. I'm sure this is due to an outstanding front desk management staff. I wish that other companies could follow your style.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by travelWise Practical travel to expensive city.
I had a January conference in San Francisco and needed 2 rooms so my family of 5 could travel with me. We travel to spend time in the place we are visiting and not in the hotel. I seek a place to stay that is reasonably priced, clean, comfortable, safe, and near public transportation. This Holiday Inn exceeded all of my criteria. The rooms and hotel are immaculate and new. The staff is genuinely friendly without invading your privacy and keep the place running smoothly. There is a nice (small - how many people really utilize this anyway) exercise room in which I actually ran twice. They offer a free shuttle van which we took to the BART station every morning, never having to wait for more than 10 minutes. It is a 5 minute drive. In the evenings on the the way back we took the AC Transit since it is right across the street from BART but you can call the hotel and they will send the shuttle if you prefer.
Overall this hotel is a great way to visit the bay area leaving you money to actually spend on restaurants, museums, and sporting events in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vivz Excellent hotel
Everything about this hotel was great. Not knowing where to stay since it was our first time in Oakland, I trusted the reviews. I am completely amazed at how comfortable and welcoming the staff is here. From the shuttle driver to the restaurant staff to the manager, nothing but kind and ready to serve you attitude. Will defintely return next Raider season.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hegenberger Abitrary amenities for IHG members
We stayed a total of 3 nights at this facility. The first night, our party of 4 all received a complimentary bottle of water and a package of cookies for being a IHG members. When we arrived on a separate trip, just a few days later, the front desk staff only gave me one complimentary item and only because I asked. He said he could not give one to the rest of my family because they didn't have very many bags made up. I know it was just a bottle of water and some cookies, but it appeared to be an arbitrary move on the part of the hotel staff. (There were more than 4 bags visible on the back counter.) How are IHG members supposed to be recognized anyway? The policy should be consistent. Also $8 for parking is unreasonable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MMT67 Clean room and comfortable bed
This property is extremely clean. There were several of us that stayed at this Holiday Inn and all of our rooms were very clean and beds very comfortable. The shuttle service to and from the Oakland Coliseum and Coliseum Bart station is extremely convenient. The only reason why I did not give this property 5 stars is because we ended up taking a taxi to the hotel from the Oakland airport after waiting 35 minutes for the Shuttle to pick us up. When we arrived at the hotel all we got was a lame excuse from the lady at the front desk. Aside from her and this 1 bad experience the remainder of our stay and staff at this hotel gets 5 stars.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BradySanDiego Longer trip on van to hotel than my flight to Oakland!
I stay at this hotel all the time. The stay is normally perfect and hassle free. This stay was different. I arrived and called for the shuttle to pick me up. I am a Platinum guest and Royal Intercont Ambassador. I book a room with 2 king beds. The shuttle took over 50 minutes to arrive. When he did arrive we where about to exit the airport for the short trip across the street to the hotel. The driver got a page for another pickup at the airport. So we turn around and go back to where I had been standing 50 minutes and had called 3 times to pick up some people that had just arrived. And of course when loading the bags they where in front of me so when we got to the hotel I was in the back of the line and waited another 20 minutes to check in. I got to my room and there was only one bed. I called the front dest and said I only have one bed and confirmed 2 bed it was on my confirmation email and he said he was sorry that was all that was left. So my travel partner had to goto another hotel because they where sold out. I was very upset and asked for the manger to call me the when he come in. Never heard a word. I am very disappointed in this stay. Especially to treat a VERY loyal guest in this matter.

I work as a Flight Attendant. I always stay here prior to my flights out. It has a very spa like feel to it.
The last time I stayed on 11/27/2013 they had installed a gate. When I was finished registering I was told that I would be charged $8.00 a day for my car to be parked. This is a new addition. I don't leave my car when I fly I leave it at the airport. The gate is not secure you can get in or out by calling the front desk. This is a stupid fee. I would gladly pay if I were leaving my car while working or traveling but I don't. I don't think guests should have to pay to park. they don't move or do anything with our car. Very disappointed. I will save money by not eating dinner at the hotel any longer. And I will bring my own wine too.

2nd time staying and I loved it...great space and comfortable beds. Thanks for the great service. I've worked with/ around veterans for 17yrs. And I had the pleasure of meeting several marine vets while dining in the bar area. Every one was very humble and exciting. THE guest were great as well. I loved my stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lescfls Mixed experience
Front desk staff was great -- other staff, not so much. As compared to the neighboring hotels, I would probably return because of room size and comfort, price, small size of hotel, and convenience. The larger hotels in the area each have strengths and problems. The convenience of the neighboring restaurants is a plus. Since I end up staying near the Oakland airport several times a year, I was curious to try this facility.
The size of the room was great, beds comfortable and the "activity table" was one of the best workspaces I have found in a hotel. We would have liked more TV stations. The arm chair is great but needs a footrest. There are enough electrical outlets. It would be nice to be able to keep the bathroom door open. Also, that door and closet door bump -- closet should be a slider. There should be a light directly above the full length mirror.
I might use the pool another time since it is heated.
We had dinner in the restaurant. It was very crowded and noisy. There is no where that folks who are not interested in sports broadcasts can eat and converse. It was almost impossible to get waited on -- we concluded that we were the wrong age and gender. The menu we had looked at online was obsolete -- we had chosen the restaurant for the lamb chops that were no longer available. The quesadillas were almost inedible. The steak sandwiches were tasty but the Texas Toast was undertoasted and soggy.
Lobby snack station needs fruit and milk and more variety.
We hung out the room service breakfast order on the door knob. It was never collected. When we called, reported that lapse and ordered breakfast, no apologies. When we described the experience to the staff member who brought up breakfast, there was no apology or effort to remediate the problem by offering some complementary item. The housekeeping staff knocked on the door on the day of check out -- evidently had not been instructed to leave those checking out undisturbed until they departed as is customary in most hotels. She was confused when I said to wait until we left at noon.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cvanderwilt The restaurant and bar were way below quality standards.
I paid for "including breakfast" and had to show the front desk my confirmation. Said it hadn't said it in his record. So, he gave me coupons for breakfast. When we presented it to the server at breakfast, was told that is was for $10 off, not for a full breakfast. Thought that was not right, as I had paid for "including breakfast" and it had never mentioned it in my reservation.
The service was certainly below par, had to go grab a pitcher of water myself to fill our glasses. Ordered Orange Juice that was never served (or billed) and even though a "skillet" stated that it had vegetables, only came with a breakfast steak and eggs. And when asked about it, was told yes this was their skillet. Couldn't complain as we had a plane to catch.
The previous evening we had ordered Vodka tonics. They were unfit. So we asked the server about it, and she said that they were out of tonic, but substituted club soda instead and were out of tonic water.
The rooms and beds were very nice and comfortable and were very pleased with them. I have NEVER written a negative review, but the bar and restaurant were among the worst experiences I have ever had at a hotel. And, the "including breakfast" was certainly not what I had paid for. I would have saved money by not including that and just paying the $10 myself for me and my guests.

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip to the area. The staff at the front desk and in the restaurant go above and beyond as a rule. My stay was very pleasant. The area of town where the hotel is located although very conveniently located to the airport did not seem the safest. It is an industrial area and did not offer much in terms of shops and dining options without taking a drive.
