This was our first time staying at a Holiday Inn Express. Beds were comfy and firm, even with my chronic back pain. Only complaint was the bathroom was small for 2 people in a hurry getting ready to go to a wedding, let alone 4. The complimentary breakfast had a good variety, even a few items for a vegan like...

We were very happy with our quick stay at this hotel. While in town for a college visit we just needed a place to put our heads down at night, but we feel like we received so much more. On the day of our reservation, we had driven from So Cal all the way up to Walnut Creek. We ran... More

I had to extend my stay due to an ill family member and Donna at the front desk was more than helpful. Not only did she help me out understanding the room rates but every time I walked by she always asked about my ill family member. The hotel was jam packed all week long and for her to always... More

This is a good hotel is you have to stay for a few days in the city. All staff are very polite. The only thing that I think it will be better is put more fruits on the breakfast. The breakfast is very "american", with a lot of not healthy things. In general it's a good place to stay.

We really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and very spacious. The bed was also really comfy. We especially enjoyed the warm delicious breakfast, which was very convenient for us and our kids, since we were in town for a Rugby Tournament that weekend, and we had to be up and out early! The kids also enjoyed the pool... More

Clean, comfortable, quiet. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and clean. The bathroom towels were clean as well. Complimentary breakfast was better than most. Centrally located in Walnut Creek.

We had reserved two rooms for 3 nights, but when we arrived one of the rooms wasn't available because a wedding party stayed on an extra day. Brian at the front desk was appropriately apologetic, kind, and at all times professional, and had already made all the arrangements for us to stay our first night another hotel down the street....

The location is not in downtown Walnut Creek, but it is my experience that these HI Express hotels are not in the center of town.
