Noisy intersection. Gritty neighborhood. Minimal services -- not even a check-in office (it's a poorly marked pass-through window -- imagine a movie-theater). Okay, a doable walk to vibrant Temescal area BUT our host's car window was smashed during dinner there: the take-away is to park only along well-lit, busy streets. Inn is convenient to a BART station. Our room was...

What a find in Oakland! The Inn is a beautifully remodeled traditional motel style property that I would 100% stay at again in a heartbeat.

I stayed at this property while attending a conference nearby. The property manager Nick was extremely helpful and inviting from arrival to my departure. He was informative and prompt with request. If Nick didn't know the answer to a question, he found out and followed up. This is a rarity in customer service at times so he's awesome in that...

Clean, comfortable room with very friendly service. A minimum of housekeeping services, the first night we were there the only indication that someone had serviced the room was the coffee was replaced. But since we had only used one of the creamers in the two packet creamer, we were not given a new one. And, there was only one hook...

Room was nice and clean, comfortable bed, two blocks from bart. No vending machines but next door to a mini convenience store. Nicholas was helpful but they do not accept cash as payment. Next door to a Carl's Jr.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Inn, very comfortable bed and clean bedroom and bathroom. Super helpful staff and in a great location. Maybe not the quietest spot to stay but so central for a short walk to great bars and restaurants. I'll definitely stay again.

My wife and I have stayed here 2x and both experiences were amazing. For being new comers to the City of Oakland, the area of Temescal is up and coming. It reminds me of being back home in some of the trendy areas here in St. Louis, like Tower Grove Park neighbourhoods. The rooms were modern and up to date....

We stayed at the Inn at Temescal for 6 nights while visiting our daughter who lives nearby. The location was great, rooms clean, lovely and well appointed. The manager could not have been nicer or more helpful whenever we needed anything. We will be back.
