Walnut Creek is a 30-45 minute drive from San Francisco. The drive is well worth the cost savings to stay at this nice hotel. The rooms are spacious, the staff is very friendly and the building is in very good shape. Parking is free. There are several restaurants close by and shopping is a short drive away. The breakfast area... More

I stayed here with my husband for three nights. The hotel and room were clean and staff were always prompt when we had a request for a shuttle to the nearby BART station. Breakfast selection was good and they switched it up a little every morning so you don't have to eat the same stuff every day. The only complaint... More

I only stayed one night on this most recent trip to Walnut Creek, but everything was great. The internet was fast and stable, so I was able to perform some evening work without interruption. The bed was comfortable and I slept well. Finally, the breakfast was tasty with plenty of options (not to mention I'm a sucker for the cinnamon... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights on vacation and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The location is perfect, not in the big city traffic, but close enough to everything we needed. The bed was amazing. The most comfortable bed we've ever slept on! We had a quiet room facing the courtyard and never had any complaints with noise. And... More

Everyone who works here greets you with a smile, including maintenance. Front desk is always ready to help. Nice courtyard grounds. Convenient location. Great morning breakfast, lots of choices! Typical motel like setting. Parking available I front of building and an underground garage.

We arrived late after a late arrival into SFO. The front desk attendant was cheerful and greeted us with 2 bottles of water-much needed after a cross country flight! He directed us where to park that was closest to the room-thankfully as the hotel is way larger than it appears from the front! The room was big and clean, predictable... More

We were looking for a place to stay to break up a long drive from Southern California to the wine country and settled on this property. It was a great choice. The staff were all friendly and helpful.

Check-in was faultless as always including the fact that we had pre-selected a room location, which was available to us. Parking can't be beat - underground and connected to the hotel, readily accessible. The room is, as always, spotless. Our pet peeve is that the bathroom is equipped, on check-in, with one bath towel, per person for the two of... More

Stayed here because it was walking distance to the BART Station (about a 1/2 mile). Room was clean but overall the Hotel is very dated and worn. Managers reception on Wednesday was a very pleasant surprise after driving all day. The burgers, chicken, brats were all very good and done right there in the court yard grill.
