I have been here before and it was okay but this time I was pretty disappointed. Staying in the Bay area isn't cheap so I chose to stay here again. I went to check in and there was nobody at the desk. I called out and finally had to go looking for someone. The young lady that I found was... More

I wanted to be able to give this old motor lodge a better rating, but things like the smoke alarm hanging by its wires from the ceiling and the burn holes in the synthetic fiber blankets earn this place an "average" in my book. It appeared clean, if more than a little worn, with some updated touches like the flat... More

This is a small motel on the edge of Walnut Creek. Good for people looking for somewhere to stay for a few nights at an affordable rate. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom is sizable. The rooms are clean.

Looking for a place to stay or just stopping through the area? If your check list is clean, affordable and easy access to the freeway, this hotel is for you. This is a family run, no frills place. I liked the very hard bed but my husband didn't. When we first booked it, we thought the whole hotel was pet... More

Old style California motel (room entrances were direct from the outside) The room and fixtures were clean and had a microwave, refrigerator, wifi and good TV) The property has been here for many years, apparently run by the same family. They were considerate and extremely helpful with directions and recommendations. My room was showing a little age (tiny sink, no... More

This is an old-school, family-run California motel. Upon arrival, the room was impeccably clean and even fresh-smelling. The furniture was a bit dated, but perfectly functional. The air conditioner worked just fine. TV had a myriad of channels. I did not use the free wi-fi since I carry my own 4G hot spot, but it is available. In the morning,... More

Other reviews have said it all: clean, freeway noise, older updated property. We had an upstairs queen room, small but adequate. We just could not get their wifi there. Maybe rooms closer to the office get better reception. Very nice breakfast with fresh fruit. Coffee sadly lacking. Nice location. We walked 5 blocks after dark to a restaurant with no... More

We did a one night stay for a class reunion. Check in was easy. Parking was busy late at night. They have their own lot. Room is nice and clean. You have to borrow an ironing board, which is a small table top one. Breakfast is just cereals and muffins, coffee, juice and milk. But enough to hold us over... More

The Inn is just below many freeways (highways) and very noisy. The traffic noise kept us awake at night. The room was clean, but smaller than the photo showed. We had to go around a bed to get to the closet, bathroom. Old furniture, but OK for a one night stay. Having a refrigerator and a microwave was a plus.... More

We found this place by Googlemapping Walnut Creek accommodation and this was the closest one. I looked it up and everything appealed. We weren't disappointed and would stay again. Stayed one night. The freeway overbridge was right opposite our room, but it wasn't too noisy at night. We didn't lose any sleep. In the middle of the carpark opposite our... More
