This was our third stay at this hotel, all related to UC Berkeley visits. This refurbished hotel is very clean and a good value in Oakland. Although located downtown, it is much nicer than some similarly priced but cheesy motels elsewhere in the city. Parking...More

I do not recall a microwave in the room we stayed in. The room was somewhat small and there may not have been a proper spot to place one. Whether any of Clarion's guest rooms contain microwaves, I'd ask front desk personnel.
