Room was clean but out dated. Bed was very hard, woke up with a backache. Blanket had some dried white stuff on it, I don't even want to think of what it was.....yikes! Bathroom was clean, shower was tiny but had great water pressure. Room was over priced but I guess it is Walnut Creek. I do like that the... More

This motel has been around 40 years or so and the overall condition shows it. On the other hand, if all you are looking for is a place to sleep near downtown Walnut Creek with all its shopping and restaurants, then this may be the place for you. We had two king suites, which means we had a mini fridge... More

As the reviews on Trip Advisor were not especially good, we were not not expecting much when we booked, but hoping for the best. They take pets which narrows down our choices in most cities. Comfortable king, what looked like new renovation, very friendly staff and a great night's sleep. A plus with fridge and microwave, too.

Walnut Creek can be very pricey, but this small motel was an affordable choice. The rooms are average (clean but basic) and some of them have refrigerators and microwaves. The TV channel list is extensive and all calls from your room to phones in the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico are FREE (except information and 1-900 type calls). A simple... More

The price is right and the front desk staff are wonderfully friendly. Our room was fair - the bathroom was clean, but the bedroom carpet was stained, as were the sheets, and the curtains were falling off the curtain rod. Just a little more attention to spiffing up the rooms would go a long way.

We needed a motel not far from our friend whom we were visiting in Walnut Creek. Diablo Motor Inn was a perfect location. The room was adequate in size, and provided perks such as a refrigerator and micro. The shower was memorable - hot, great pressure. The continental breakfast featured fresh melon and orange slices, and above average muffins. The... More

I needed a place where I could heat up food and that had a refrigerator and was close to where I needed to go each day. This Inn was perfect. I had a room that was not near the freeway so I was not bothered by the noise. The room was clean and had ample space. There was complimentary internet... More

Very old, not charming. This is a Motel not an Inn. Pricey for nothing. Consider looking for something else. You may be VERY disappointed. There are other options. Price should be about $50.00 per night, no more!
