Historical Traveler Reviews Executive Inn and Suites Oakland
Great value but slow in service
Great value, they even upgraded us to the new suites. We love the large jacuzze tub and the king size bed. Took 2 days to get maintence to fix the leaky toilet and the ant infestation never got resolve when we checked out 4 days later. We were in rooms 393 and 394, they both had an ant problem. They were crawling in the bathroom area and the coffee bar area. Otherwise, for $99 per room it was the best deal for the area. It included breakfast, a daily paper and free shuttle to the Oakland Airport.
Was a little aprehensive at first because the drive up to the reception area in the older building was a little shabby. Inside was neat and clean and the reception staff pleasant. However, stayed in the new building, very new. The rooms were beautifully appointed with stylish modern furnishings not the normal boring hotel/motel fare. Very comfortable beds. Hi speed internet connection on good size desk with real desk chair. Oversize bathrooms with seperate shower and bathtub, toilet was seperated also. Loads of towels, lovely soaps and toiletries, prompt delivery of additonal pillows when requested. Mini micro & fridge, coffe maker and ample supplies of coffee and tea options. Private balcony overlooked water, view of San Francisco skyline in distance Nice/average continental breakfast served in lobby.
Was very impressed and will stay there on next trip to Oakland.
Too little for too much
Shuttle service: Over the phone they told me it would be no longer than 15 minutes from arrival at the airport. It took 2 calls and 55 minutes; They did not tell me about the evening hourve dourves and cookies; shuttle service to Jack London Square was free....if you wanted to schedule an hour or more in advance. The rooms are far from minimal for the rates they charge. No hand towels. The jacuzzi was warm at most. I would not recommend this to anyone...and I stay in a lot of hotels.
Better value than chain hotels
Love the cool bayside location, room sizes, cleanliness, and free (!) high-speed internet in the rooms and lobby.
Wow! New Suites are Amazing!
Have stayed many times at Executive Inn due to the lovely water location- but now they have added Luxury Suites that are some of the finest accommodations I have stayed anywhere. Huge, beautifully decorated rooms and large bath with separate tub and shower. I enjoyed the free high speed internet and concierge services. Worth paying the few dollars extra.
I have stayed at the Executive Inn more than ten times over the past two years. They offer excellent value. Reasonable rates and free breakfasts, parking and shuttle service. The rooms facing the water are very quiet with nice views. They added a frequent stay program last year which has worked well for me. They are adding 80 new rooms which I understand are going to be more upscale than the current ones. Staff is very friendly
A good bet
I've stayed at the Executive a number of times in the past five years and have had uniformly good experiences there. Nice bayfront location, spacious, well-furnished rooms, continental breakfast included. Overall a very good and reasonably priced place to stay.
Received bad service for our group reservation - a number of system screw-up!! Made reservations week in advance and they lost me in their system - not even apologetic.
Was I surprised to see they had my credit card info, though - considering they "lost" my reservation.
Curt Receptionist, not able to help.
also if you expect incoming calls via hotel frontdesk or operator, dont expect those calls to reach you - they never will!!
Very good place to stay
I have stayed at the Executive Inn many times, they have not ever disappointed me. Great place to stay if you want to stay in the San fran area and not spend big bucks.
I've stayed here several times on business and honestly think it's one of the best values in Oakland. It's located on the water south of Jack London Square. The water view rooms are very comfortable and quiet with very nice views. They have an extensive continental breakfast and free shuttle service to the airport and downtown area. I have a business associate that also stays there. He flies into Oakland and doesn't even rent a car. They shuttle him to offices downtown and to restaurants at night. They don't have a restaurant on site other than the breakfast room but they do have a full bar. The prices are very competitive and the atmosphere very pleasant. Apparently they are getting ready to add more rooms.

... other candies. We tried tons of flavors, I am still a black licorice fan but I have to admit I really liked the apple pie a la mode. The girls were all talk about how they were going to try flavors like booger, grass and stinky socks but when it came down to it they went with safe fun fruity flavors instead. Carrie thought that was boring so tricked them into trying more "interesting" flavors - I will say I didn't ...
... the square for a little longer stopping into the store again to get another free chocolate and eventually made our way down to another smaller pier that extended a few hundred yards into the water giving a great view of Alcatraz and the rest of San Fran. On this pier we saw some old men fishing and got scared a few times that they were going to catch the hook on someone walking by (like ourselves). This however brought up my famous life question that ...
... actually ok, well it's clean and that's half the battle won. Still we did not feel, like leaving anything of value in the room so off loaded the luggage except the valuables and headed off for the Golden Gate Bridge and the town of San Francisco. On our way across Bay Bridge which I personally think is far more impressive than the GGB we were stopped by the police. It was quite ...
Ray had not slept well through the night and we both woke up quite late (for us) at 7am. After making breakkie we decided we would head for Lake Merritt on the free shuttle (going Uptown this time) and see if we could locate the Whole Foods Market. I was keen to find some fresh vegies and fruit, and we like Whole Foods almost as much as we love Trader Joe's. There is always a lot more involved when going out as travellers than when going out ...
... a collection of 8 of them hung up in the cabin). Speaking of flags I’ve decided on the crossing of the line ceremony (that’s when the boat goes over the equator and everyone has a big old party!) I’m going to negotiate the flags into a giant toga to wear that night (go on, laugh), I’m still trying to get into the spirit of fun on here seeing as nothing much occurs past midnight. Also heard on the news today that Fiji are removing the union ...
