Recommended Hotel: Washington Inn
Why: Best Rates, Free Breakfast, Restaurant with Full Bar
The Washington Inn is the cheapest hotel ($122/night) in Downtown Oakland and it also has good amenities like free breakfast and inexpensive parking. The Clarion, Marriott, and Courtyard Marriott are all fine hotels, but nothing special for the increased price tag starting at $179 a night and going up well over $250 per night. Some guests at The Washington Inn complained that the rooms are small, but it seemed to be a minor complaint when location and price are factored in. Guests like the bar in the lobby as a place to relax in the evenings. We recommend The Washington Inn to couples and solo travelers.
