    We stayed at the Jack London Inn for two nights, visiting from North East bay on this staycation. Yes the place is pretty rough around the edges but for the area and the price it was perfect for us. After staying here and reading some reviews I have noticed the owner and empoyees of the facility are aware they are not a five star establishment but they don't let that stop them from trying to make your stay pleasant. All that said appearance is not their strong point and walking down the hallway for the first time it does feel like you are in a bad horror film.Free parking is a plus! also we added an extra person to our reservation at the last minute and the owner didn't charge us. Shortly after we arrived we almost had to check out  to come home to address an emergency. We called the front desk and had asked if we could only pay for the one night and not for the second, they were fine and happy with this deal but we ended up being able to stay.

    My review is for the customer service and renovated room only. I was extremely weary to stay here due to the reviews; however, Mariam promised us a newly renovated room and she came through. She was very kind and the cleaning staff were also very nice. Our room was clean and we actually slept really well. The train stopped late in the evening so we didn't have to listen to it all night. Our room had a fridge, coffee maker and microwave, all of which worked nicely.

    2.5 rounds up to 3 stars right? My mom and I stayed here for 2 nights in a room on the 3rd floor with 2 queen sized beds. Positives first: wifi, the price is really good, the staff are really nice, the rooms are clean despite being a bit worn. I was delitefully surprised to know breakfast was included. Neutral points: beds are to bouncy/soft for me but some people might like it I guess. Now for the not so great parts: we arrived and the guy at the front desk regretfully told us there was no hot water due to a possible gas leakage. He gave us a discount but it was still quite inconvenient. Note this was only for a few days I think because on our second (and last) night we stayed we asked the front desk and they said the hot water was running again. During the first night i also heard a very loud train 5 or six times during thee night that caused me to asleep really unwell that day, but the second night i only heard it once and it was a way better nights sleep.

    For the price this hotel was simply perfect! What a Beautiful experience here I've had the past four days, Terrific customer service and superb cleanliness all around! Gorgeous neighborhood, a short walk to thearina and bay. I was greeted with a friendly hello every time I passed the lobby and treated very respectful by the front desk service. The reason I'm writing this review is because I was absolutely shocked to see how many negative reviews there were and I feel that this is an injustice because the hotel experience that I had was absolutely wonderful. This hotel is in a historic neighborhood and is itself historic. I felt safe here and my car was always in a safe parking place, always well illuminated.I would definitely come back here especially if I'm on a budget and trying to save some money. And, I have to emphasize, that for the cost, this hotel is absolutely the best, probably one of the best in the country, and unbeatable for a very expensive city like San Francisco or Oakland. Again, what a wonderful experience I had at this place. It was absolutely clean and had absolutely excellent customer service. Five stars, no doubt about it, you can't go wrong with the Jack London Inn!

    I really like staying at ur business. The only thing I don't care for is that people not staying there park on the property. That bothers me. I can't wait for the renovations to be done so I can use the pool. I will be coming back. Honestly, probably tonight.

    The service and hotel were nice, but unfortunately, upon check out, the elevator closed on my injured ankle (despite pushing the door and door open button), but when I tried to make a complaint, I was given the run around and offered $10 off my stay. I would like to speak with someone regarding this issue. In the meantime, I will not be staying again.
