Overall, I have only one real complaint. The main light in the room (ceiling light over the bed) was a motion sensor light that turned off every two minutes unless I waived my arms or leg in the air. I’d like to be able to...More

Washington Inn has a charming atmosphere of the past times. It is like going back in the time. I'm sure it was a splendorous hotel several decades ago but now it is just an old hotel but decent. Don't expect anything special. Rooms are clean...More

We were happy to find a reasonably priced hotel near Lake Merritt. The Washington Inn provides $15 parking in a $35.00 parking lot!! That was much appreciated. Also we enjoyed the included breakfast of hard boiled eggs, instant oatmeal, juice, assorted breads, coffee and tea.

I would say it is accessible - no stairs at entry. Elevator is small but I think a power chair would fit. Some of the king suites have a step down so be sure to ask for an accessible room. We really like the people here and... More
