My husband and I needed a place to stay in Oakland and were delighted with our stay at the Best Western Plus Bayside Hotel. We knew the hotel was parallel to the 880, however, once inside, we soon forgot that! The lobby is beautiful and looks like it was recently refurbished (as does the whole hotel). We were warmly greeted by Nicolas and Erin who checked us in with such a friendly manner, answered all our questions, and efficiently signed us up for the free shuttle service to OAK, knowing that we would need it the following morning. We were very impressed with their service and enthusiasm to make our stay the best! We reserved a king bed with a bay view and it was exactly as the pictures show on the hotel website. The room was very spacious, with a nice big seating area, luxury bath, microwave/refrigerator station, and a wonderful balcony facing the water. We totally enjoyed relaxing in this room! I couldn't believe that this GEM of hotel is in Oakland alongside a busy freeway! It's clean, quiet, and beautiful! The view of the water from our room was peaceful and felt miles away from a bustling city. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and book a room facing the water. The rooms rival some of the expensive hotels we've stayed at in SF for a fraction of the price. You will need a car to get around from this location, or you can utilize the free shuttle service to OAK, the BART, or Jack London shopping area. The hotel also serves a nice free breakfast. less

Great review and thank you for taking the time to write about your experiences. Our team at the Bayside really work hard to make every guest's stay memorable.
It really is kind of crazy finding a hotel so close to the freeway that delivers such a great stay experience. Our waterview rooms are really delightful, peachful and comfortable.
We look forward to your return soon.
