    Perfect Stop for One Night

    Perfect little hotel that feels like a hostel for adults. There is a little shares kitchen area and the rooms are perfectly situated for everything you need including coffee. For the price, this is the perfect quick stop.

    I had a really nice night here. The front desk lady was sweet and helpful. She upgraded my room to a beautiful King suite when she knew my fiance and I booked one night for our anniversary. The room was clean and lovely. The city view at night was fabulous. The mattress is comfortable. Trending Inn definitely will be my first choice in Oakland.

    The best hotel I've ever been. Great experience staying as a business traveler. Really nice front desk service. Nice terrace to hang out with friends or enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Unique corridor with modern photography works. The room is clean and the bed is comfortable. A little fridge inside the room brings great convenience to me. Definitely gonna come back again!

    Will come back

    Nice little boutique hotel downtown. Great location. Service was great. The rooms are fairly new, nice and clean inside. There is a cool open air terrace upstairs that is really nice for hanging out if you don’t want to be stuffed in the room. Really enjoyed staying here, will come back

  • 6.0.Good

    The walls are very thin and I could hear everything, including when my neighbors flushed toilet or showered or opened drawers. I don’t smoke. They gave me a smoker room that reeked of cigarettes. The staff is very very nice but the desk isn’t staffed 24/7 and in fact, they don’t really seem to be there 75% of the time.

    Just missed the mark

    This remodeled hotel just missed the mark. Couple things to be aware of. This is in an old historic building and consequently, there is no elevator. If you are on the second floor, there are 29 stairs that you need to climb to get up to floor 2. There are limited number of electrical outlets available and no USB charging ports. There is no ice machine in the building. There is a fridge in the room, but no freezer component, and nothing really got cold in the fridge. The bathroom vanity is in the living area and the toilet and shower are in the bathroom. The water pressure in the shower was crazy low and it took literally 2 minutes before hot water to start coming out. I think the owners were trying to make this a nice place, but they just missed the mark.

    Not really a hotel. It's like a factory loft with some rooms in it. No lobby. Dirty. Cold. Very strange.

    The hotel itself was great, but I made sure to take an Uber coming and going after dark.

  • 4.0.Fair

    What was good: the room and the property in general was very clean and, since it looked to be recently renovated, quite beautiful on the inside. Also, the room we had off the courtyard was absolutely silent. We heard nothing at all. The woman who met us upon arrival, Cher, was very friendly and helpful. The other of the coin includes the fact that the hotel is located is a very sketchy part of town. Our rental was broken into parked on the street. The streets in the area are badly littered and frankly disgusting. The area is inhabited by a population that make it difficult to feel safe walking around in the evening looking for something to eat. The hotel has a ridiculous policy of having the front desk open for only a few hours a day. You can check-in only between the hours of 3 and 5. Otherwise you’ll need to make special arrangements to get the key to your room. Once there we found that the room that I had specifically reserved was not available and we had to settle for another less comfortable room. Also, if you’re used to housekeeping during a stay lasting more than a single day you’ll be disappointed. Check-out was complicated by the fact that the key code I had been given to operate the door, because no one was at the desk at the time, ceased to work after a single use. We had to call the hotline, imagine a hotel with a hotline, to get Cher to show up allow us to get the remainder of our stuff out of the room. I will not be returning.
