Blending a relaxing waterfront setting with world-class facilities and fully tailored meeting services, the Best Western Plus Bayside Hotel is consistently acclaimed among the top business and leisure hotels in the Bay Area and remains #1 on TripAdvisor of all of Oakland hotels. Conveniently located near San Francisco, the hotel is a gateway to the Bay Area.

The Bayside Hotel is uniquely positioned on Oakland's waterfront and offers quick freeway access while being simple and fast to catch flights from the Oakland International Airport. The Hotels’ modern and spacious rooms make all water view rooms feel like a suite, making any guest feel like they are residing at a five-star resort.

When choosing a Bay Area or Oakland hotel, ensure that you get fantastic value as well as a great waterfront location. Each waterside room includes either a patio or balcony with impressive views of Oakland's waterway. Be sure to catch the sun setting over the San Francisco skyline. Travel 12 minutes on BART (train) or take a majestic ferry ride from Jack London Square to the heart of downtown San Francisco. The Bayside Hotel is closer to downtown San Francisco than many San Francisco hotels.

Oakland has been voted one of the top cities to visit in the United States because of its trendy and creative food and restaurant resurgence, and its edgy arts scene. Discover it all at this waterfront Oakland hotel location just off the 880 Freeway. The hotel is very close to a number of Universities and Colleges including UC Berkeley (Cal), Laney College, Mills College and Holy Names University.

Our top ranked hotel in Oakland is one of the few Oakland hotels featuring free superfast internet, and a free hot breakfast. We also offer a tremendous travel value with no hidden fees added onto your room rate other than the normal taxes and tourism fees. Enjoy a fresh, locally roasted cup of coffee in the morning before heading out on your N. CA adventure.
