    Experience once or twice in a lifetime until I regain the strength and flexibility of my youth.

    Amtrak day and night clearing. The street by sounding their horn.

    Location

    Renovation needed!! Suite was disgusting. No amenities, no fridge, no soaps, etc available. Lighting was yellow and very sparse. All the windows has so much condensation you could not even see through them. We did not even want to take our shoes off or get into the bed. We check in and checked right out. Train goes by to often. Don't waste your time or money.

    The only thing I did like was I need

    I did not like the facts that when I went to go take a shower the shower floor was all cracked into small pieces that could have cut your feet.. when the staff was notified they asked do we want to change but the bath tub in the other rooms was worst . FOR the amount of money your ask for you have to be really out off your mines

    The secure parking

    The check in staff was helpless and overworked. The rooms were horrible with the first room given to us having rats runing around and chewed almond peices on the beds!! The replacement room given was also horrible with only one light in the room having a bulb out of 3 lights, rotten, smelly, stained carpets, no batteries in the remote for Tv, NO Wi-Fi as it was out of order.....and the list goes on!!

    Nothing! I think wi-fi worked.

    Broken bed, NO towels, cracked door to outside, no one cared about fixing problems, just absurd. I'm not particular about a place just to lay my head but it was crazy that we actually paid money to stay there. We wanted to bail but there was zero availability anywhere else.

    I have traveled to many places and roughed it many times as well. Jack London Inn was one of the lowest points. The only thing that was okay was the wi-fi.

    I could not walk barefoot as carpets had a stickiness to them and severe burn marks. Shower was very very moldy and cracked leaking onto the floor. There were only 2 lightbulbs working, the entrance hall and one in the bathroom. The TV had no remote The bathroom was repainted so badly it looked like a 5 year old crossing the lines in a coloring book. Towels were requested every 15 minutes on arrival and only received it the next day when a new manager was on duty and I had to fetch it myself. The safety of the lift is questionable as the inspection certificate expired in 2009. My door had to be kicked open. The magnetic lock had to be re-coded every day. The mold was so bad that I had to sleep with all the windows open. There was no telephone in the room The hallway carpet was being mopped, yes mopped a few times due to leaking water. I seriously wonder if the Inn would pass a safety inspection. It either needs to be re-furbished completely or knocked down.

    Worst place ever.....No phone in room, No towels in the room, No iron or ironing board in the room.....took 1 hr to get an iron to the room. Rooms were disgusting......floor had stains all over the place and curtains were full of either poop or blood on them. to top it off iron ruined my shirt!!! place sucks. and Booking.com should be ashamed to list this place as a 2.5 star hotel......This is a -1.0 Star at the best. Place is horrible.

    This hotel is a dream come true: a nightmare. Read all other reviews to find out why, it is unbelievable that such hotel exists and apparently can function for a long time. It is also unbelievable that booking.com still has this hotel in its choice of hotels. Avoid this hotel!

    The free wifi was a great plus, the fact that it was near the water was great, and the shower was nice.

    They wouldn't let us check in until 20 minutes AFTER our check in time, our room was lacking a phone and TV remote, the pictures on the website didn't match, one of the people working at the desk was rude, our bathroom had loose linoleum, and there was water problems while we were there.

    Close to Yoshi's where we were going to eat and see a show.

    Noise of the train every 15 minutes. Broken facet--NO WATER. They said they were booked up and could not place us in any rooms. No discounts for our discomforts. It was very embarrassing that I actually booked this for my girl friends! Never again. I do not recommend this place I should have listened to the bad reviews.

    Take the train to Oakland for the weekend! Staying at the Jack London Inn is perfect: you can walk over to/from the Amtrak station; you can cross the street to the waterfront; eat delicious and healthy; browse the Saturday morning craft/flea market right there by the boats. Downtown Oakland is coming alive - full of a diversity of people biking, walking, eating, enjoying life. We happened by the Bicycle Coffee establishment and I ordered a dark roast, only to be told it was free Friday and on the house! What a pleasant surprise! And educational too, as I also learned that lighter roasted coffee has more caffeine content. An excellent weekend and only an hour on the train from San Jose. We hope to go again and highly recommend it.

    Of course it is obvious and doesn't need saying that the INN desperately needs renovating. They are doing it, but very slowly room by room. Apparently the last owner had big plans some years back which fell through. This is a fantastic investment: fix it up, attract more customers - but please don't raise the rent TOO MUCH too fast. You will recoup your money as the entire area is on the upswing. Being close to the Amtrak station is an invaluable plus; this property is going to be a bonanza.
