Positive Reviews

Good location

Guests comment favorably about the location of the hotel, describing it as conveniently close to a wide variety of shops and restaurants. Plus, well-known attractions such as Jack London Square and those in Downtown San Francisco are within easy driving distance.

Comfortable rooms

The rooms at the Courtyard Oakland Emeryville attract plenty of positive comments from guests. The majority of reviews suggest that you'll find the accommodation is clean, spacious, and well laid out.

Good feedback about breakfast

Many reviews indicate that the breakfast served in the hotel's on-site Bistro restaurant is of a good standard. A few mention that they thought it was a little costly, but many feel it offers good value for money.

Negative Reviews

Parking may disappoint

Plenty of guests disliked having to fork out a daily fee for parking. Furthermore, as if that wasn't frustrating enough, there don't appear to be enough spaces in the lot to accommodate every guest at the hotel. Hence, you may be forced to park off-site.

Poor experiences with Wi-Fi

Several reviews suggest that the Wi-Fi service at the hotel could be much improved, with some guests comparing the speed of the connection as similar to the old dial-up Internet. Phone signals also seem poor.

Some rooms are noisy

Guests who were allocated a room facing the freeway sometimes comment that the noise from the passing traffic was fairly loud. This is despite the hotel installing double-pane windows. Ask for a room on the opposite side if you don't want to be bothered.
