4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for a few days while in the Bay Area. The hotel was easy to find and located close (10-minute walk) to the Pleasant Hill BART station, giving convenient access to San Francisco. The room was comfortable and quiet, although the air conditioner was noisy. Everything functioned well, although the facing on bathroom vanity was loose and a... More

I booked a room here online for 7 nights in August 2016. I chose this hotel based on a number of factors, one being the nightly rate. When I checked out yesterday, the bill was higher than I'd anticipated. Looking at the summary I saw the cost for my penultimate night was 68% (about $120.00) higher than the rate I... More

Very nice room and a convenient location. Nice clean pool and plenty big. The rooms were clean and spacious. Our room was near the entrance to the pool so it got a little noisy one evening. Our room also was plagued with an annoying noise that we couldn't identify. We first thought it was a neighbor's tv but ruled that... More

This location was great. 5 nights with the 2 kids and wife. Short walk to BART was a big plus. Staff were friendly and helpful. A big shout out to my main man Adryan who was especially helpful during a stressful time at the front desk. I'd stay again!

This is an excellent value as it includes underground parking and a substantial breakfast. The hotel is well-located and the grounds neat, tidy and modern. The staff have been consistently helpful. You can ask for sundries at the desk if you need them. The rooms are average but clean and beds very comfortable. It works nicely for a short stay.

Although the price seems to be rising every year, and I swear we're not going to stay here "for that price"-it is still the best location for "that price"! Rooms are clean-(except for a few stains on carpet). Location is within walking distance of Bart station-although it sure would be nice if they offered a shuttle after coming back from... More

Really great location. Easy to find. Clean and comfortable room. It was very quiet also. Modern decor. Wifi worked well. Parking plentiful. The hot breakfast was really good. They have a pancake maker there. Lots of selection. I would stay here again if I returned to this town.

Close to transport, car hire and shops and good value with breakfast and internet. Courtesy bus is handy and staff are couteous and friendly. Rooms were spacious and clean. Fitness centre on site is very basic but the 24 gym next to the hotel is sensational. Great location for a week and a half visit with family and sight seeing

I agree with other reviews. Noisy, poor breakfast and we don't expect a lot, but change it up a couple days. The day we checked out 2 bus loads of women had come in and all went to breakfast at the same time making it impossible for any other travelers to grab a quick bite before checking out. The line...
