My husband and I stay stay here often, especially when we visit our daughter and grandchildren in Walnut Creek. The rooms are clean, the breakfast has nice variety, and the pool and garden area are beautiful. The staff at this hotel are really helpful. I prefer to stay here whenever we visit. Mary Koehler

My husband and I stayed here for more than 2 months and glad that we did. The hotel is not only near the BART station and Highway 680, it is also near the Contra Costa and Iron Horse trails. I love to walk and I used these trails everyday we were there. I also like to mention Janus and the... More

I stayed for one night in December 2014. The hotel welcomed me with very tasty cookies. My initial room was near the front of the hotel and that was the only negative with this property. It is close to the 680 freeway and because of that, my room was noisy. I asked to be switched and they obliged. The bed... More

We are currently staying at the Holiday In Express/Walnut Creek, CA, for an extended stay. The staff have been exceptional. Donna and Sylvia are very welcoming and helped us at the business center with some unusual requests...really terrific. And Janus in the dining room has been great...the breakfast food is very good, including delicious multigrain bagels and all kinds of... More

We stayed just one night while visiting family in the area. Very nice receptionist upon our arrival. The bed was very comforatable. Everything clean. WiFi worked well throughout the hotel. Breakfast with all sorts of healthy (or not healthy!) offereings. Liked the scrambled eggs, bacon, yogurt etc. I appreciated having two computers with printers available in the lobby as I... More

The highlights were a comfortably firm mattress and a good breakfast. The room was clean and odor-free. It is conveniently located about two blocks from I-680, but I noticed no freeway noise. All in all, this Holiday Inn Express was a good value for the money. I would stay here again.

while we could not pinpoint our reaction, the furnishings were the same in all the rooms, our gut reaction was to immediately checkout. This is not like the fresh crisp Holiday Inn Express we have stayed at before. Underneath this is a tired rebranding of an older place.

Dear Valued Guest, We apologize that the furnishings in the rooms were unacceptable, we appreciate your feedback, as this provides us with valuable information in moving forward to ensure that each and every guest's stay is completely satisfactory. More

I'm a regular visitor to the East Bay area for business and I decided to try a different hotel from my usual this time, and after a bit of investigation finding one in budget, I decided on the Holiday Inn Express in Walnut Creek. Well, I say it's in Walnut Creek, it really isn't. It's about a 2 mile walk... More

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to family when we visited them. After our experience with the hotel, I would highly recommend it. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was among the best included with the room breakfasts we have had. Usually the included breakfast is barely good enough to keep your stomach from... More

I recently booked a stay at this Holiday Inn Express as part of an extension to a business trip that was postponed until a later date in February 2015. I reserved the room on a non-refundable rate less than three weeks out from the date of my business trip. I was traveling to San Francisco for a hearing, but the... More
