Good location to explore Oakland

The large majority of past guests felt this was the best positive about the inn, with Chinatown, Lake Merritt and the Oakland Museum of California all being within walking distance. Furthermore, with its location in Jack London Square, the accommodation is surrounded by an array of restaurants, shops and nightlife.

Friendly staff

The majority of previous guests to the inn praised the customer service of the staff. Those that have commented on the staff members have said that they are welcoming and friendly.

Parking is a bonus

Despite some past guests reporting difficulties in acquiring a spot for their transportation, the free on-site parking is generally seen as one of the few positives about the Jack London Inn.

Negative Reviews

Rundown and dated

Nearly every previous visitor to the Jack London Inn has stated something negative about the condition and state of the accommodation. Doors not staying locked, amenities not working, old televisions and furnishings, and unable to connect to the Wi-Fi are just some of the problems that have been brought up in the past.

Not clean

Many former guests have reported major cleanliness issues at the inn. Complaints have ranged from pungent smells polluting the rooms to bedbugs infesting the furnishings.

Air conditioning not working

A big problem brought up by recent visitors to the Jack London Inn is the air conditioning not working. Although the inn tries to compensate by supposedly offering fans to guests, this is not seen as sufficient and the rooms still get too hot.
