Jack London Inn

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 15, 2006

The Jack London Inn, located at Jack London Square is an above average hotel in a popular area. Getting here, however, takes you through some rough neighborhoods... The square itself pretty nice with many restaurants, bars, and stores including big names like Barnes and Noble. The area is also a transportation hub as you can catch ferries across the bay, BART trains, and Amtrak trains nearby. The ferry terminal and Amtrak station are just blocks away, while the BART station is in downtown Oakland about 1/2 mile from here.

The hotel itself is obviously dated, but has been recently upgraded in several areas. The lobby is nice and new, the elevators nice, and the rooms are well maintained. The hallways feel like you are in an old hostel. On the street in front of the hotel is the Amtrak rail, so don't be surprised to hear the whistle blowing and the train chugging down the street several times an hour during the day...it seems to stop running a night.

I paid $85 a night for 2 weekend nights on Orbitz while Expedia and Hotels.com were asking $90 per night. For a weekend night in the summer of 2007, the hotel website was asking $109 while Expedia was $100. The nearby Best Western at Jack London Square is usually $10-15 a night less expensive.
