“HoJo Where Art Thou?”
Reviewed February 26, 2007

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice-- well its a drive to Vallejo or a bridge toll & unending construction project to reach Walnut Creek. Best Reason to stay at this Howard Johnsons sans pancakes-- business at the smelly refinery down the next fwy offramp. Worst reason: Location, Location-the only alternate in town, The Union Hotel, (reviewed elsewhere on this site) over the years has careened from hip hideaway- to hosting a shuttered eatery and locked-up bar- to its current '07 incarnation as quaint but not yet ready for kids or those wary of creaky historic staircases. Still, the Union Hotel is what it is- an antique structure in a historic poor man's Carmel with views of the Bay that tourists should die for. Or, they might just die of shock if they paid the rack price for an SF Hotel with a like view. Or they might wish ill on another if they believed this Best Western's online fluff piece. 5 miles from Walnut Creek? Bart? 15 miles from the wine country? Not! That 5 miles includes a $4 toll, unending highway construction and if you believe grapes grow in the Bay's mudflats--well then you are at Napa's edge. Stay if you must! Insist on non-smoking room w/o fwy views/noise. "Centrally located?" Figure that one out while reading a map to book elsewhere. Good Luck!

We stayed there for 4 nights, very helpful and friendly staff. Best maid service I've ever seen, room was immaculate. Pool and jacuzzi were very clean and nice for the kids. They do, however, need to replace the mattresses in the room, you could feel the springs.

We have been here for almost a month while we looked for housing. The staff here is so wonderful and caring. They have been remodleing but there has been little or no noise. They are always cleaning something and are very helpful. The pool and jacuzzi are wonderful, too! My husband and I cannot thank them enough for a very comfortable stay.
