Newly renovated Motel 6, with flatscreen tv, and lots of outlets for your electronic devices. Located close to the freeway and a short walk from a B.A.R.T station that you could use to explore the entire bay area. Pool was clean and refreshing. A little high on price for a Motel 6 but I think that it's very reasonable considering... More

The lobby was the first thing that I encountered. It was freshly painted and clean however the night clerk almost made my husband and I turn around and run. He was unkept, had on dirty clothes, and smelled of smoke. Not a great first impression. The overall feel of our personal room was this place is clean. Motel 6 is... More

Oh, No, Right OFF the Freeway. We could not finish our stay, had to leave the next day. The traffic was heard all night long. Even the street exiting from the freeway, it's hard to slow down to a regular speed limit. So, I could hear traffic from both sides of my room. I had even gotten out of bed... More

Great location to walk to and from Bart, and other shopping. Updated to a modern look recently and I like not having carpet. Place was kept clean and for a business trip, clean and affordable was all that was needed. Staff was friendly while there and over the phone booking was really easy. I called the hotel directly the day... More

We spent one night at this motel, picked it at the last minute and just needed a place to crash. The pluses: Unlike other Motel 6s we have stayed at, this one seemed to have a higher class of clientele, with several Mercedes, Lexus, Acuras and other nice cars in the parking lot. Seemed much cleaner than many Motel 6s... More

We booked a room here for 4 nights and the room is clean and satisfactory but without wifi even though the motel says it has wifi. We have a macpro computer, ipads and iphones, which usually connect very fast. In this motel we were lucky if the wifi stayed connected to the wifi for 2 minutes at a times. It... More

This is a very good location for Walnut Creek. Good value. New "wood" flooring is a definite plus over usual questionable carpet in accommodations. Main room upgraded nicely. Bathroom needs help. Tub/shower old, stained, nicked, etc. Would stay here again.

Loved the flooring! There was no gross hotel carpet! All fixtures were updated and nice! Well light bathroom and good water pressure. Don't let outside fool you. Lady working front desk on my day of check in was very helpful with Chinese delivery suggestion and forks when delivery forgot. Hotel is near interstate but I never heard it inside room.... More

I had read the other reviews posted for this model and saw the negative ones, so I was hesitant to stay there, but ultimately had to because Motel 6 is one of the few motels that allow dogs. But we encountered none of the problems posted by other customers. Room 225 was clean enough, decent enough, and quiet enough; the... More
