After a cross country trip on Amtrak, we used this hotel as our first stop in California and our last stop before boarding Amtrak to headeast. We learned to board the Bart to SF from locals and had the time of our life. Room was nice, bar was great, price was right! we spent the

I wanted certain things in a hotel when I visit an expensive city and the Washington Inn met my criteria. I want a relatively reasonably priced room, with a private bathroom. The room has to be clean and since I wanted to see the city of San Francisco and didn't want to drive into the city, I wanted the hotel...

Decent sized 2 bed room, everything was good enough without being good enough to say it was excellent. Looks like it's on it's last painting before a renovation imo. Like I said nothing was outstanding but nothing was that bad that you wouldn't use it again.

I love to go to concerts in downtown Oakland and recently had two back-to-back so I wanted to avoid two trips from Palo Alto. What a DELIGHTFUL FIND so near to the hub as the Washington Inn! Nearby parking validated by the Inn, continental breakfast, super clean and spacious room, quiet, and with a full bar in the lobby. This...

Tiny room! Beds in the corners of the bedroom, not space to walk on the side of the beds. Sink not in the bathroom. Hardly anywhere to place the suitcases. The room was not made ready for 4 people, only 2 towels. Would not recommend a stay for more than 2 people. Bad start for our stay in Oakland/San Fransisco.

My wife and I have stayed in the Washington Inn on two separate trips to the Bay Area to visit family. Oakland has never been over populated with hotels and in the past, we would stay somewhere in San Francisco and drive to the East Bay to visit family and friends. However, as Old Oakland has matured, we decided to...

Coffee report: ceramic mugs, 4-cup basket pot with cheap coffee bag. Bring a basket filter and real coffee and you’ll be happy. Glass for drinking water and minifrig. Interesting old building with small elevator but convenient and attractive stairs for those who want to walk. Moderately attractive rooms that do not have double paned windows (but they do open for...

Rooms are clean but the linens are very worn. The service is good. My room is on a noisy corner. It's an easy walk to Jack London square and only one block off Broadway. It is a short walk to BART station which is a 40 minute ride from San Francisco International Airport.

I chose this Inn out of the local hotels based on reviews. Although it is a 3 star hotel so are all the chains nearby and I had hoped this one would have some enjoyable older details to add pleasure to my stay. It was very much so. Although I had to walk through a huge local gala event in...
