“Great Hotel But Noisy”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Lovely lobby - open and bright. Very good breakfast buffet with hot and cold choices. Nice pool area. Average size room and medium bathrooms. Location between freeway and busy surface street makes it rather noisy along with a loud air conditioner. Good for 1-2 nights.

HIExpress is proving to be consistently good. This place was accommodating (for 5, not always easy for hotels) in a great, accessible SFran suburb. Service is efficient and business-like, if not congenial, but we were quoted one (good!) price on the phone and shown another on the form you sign; not intentional, but an avoidable mix-up resolved after some significant conversation. Typical, good HIExp breakfast, plenty of parking (including underground). A good stay. Please note if this review helped you--with my thanks.

Room Tip: Desirable suburb accessible to SanFran

large, clean room. Attentive staff. Underground parking (with a few street level spots in front of hotel).

[small gripe: travel with ice pack that can be heated in microwave. There are no microwaves (or fridges) in rooms and breakfast area does not have microwave.]

We have stayed in this hotel many times over the last 4 years as my husbands heart specialist practices at John Muir Hospital. The staff is helpful & accommodating. We enjoy the large airy lobby & also the roomy breakfast area. Janus and buffet staff are welcoming, very helpful and courteous. They keep the food hot, plentiful, and the area clean. We look forward to staying here anytime we are in the area.

Room Tip: We found the rooms facing the alley on the north side noiser.

We were on our last leg of our US trip, driving from Reno, leaving from San Francisco airport back to Asia the next couple of days. The room is spacious, clean and cosy, with comfortable bed. The breakfast was good, with a number of assortment of food; cold & hot, juices and fruits. Location is great too, close to downtown Walnut Creek where there are plenty of good restaurants (chinese, italian, mexican, indian, etc), shopping malls, and movie theater. It is close to two BART stations. Take the BART to downtown San Francisco or the airport. It takes one hour. The BART takes you right to San Francisco airport.

Room Tip: we stayed on the second floor.

I had to make a last minute reservation for a quick trip to Walnut Creek. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Walnut Creek. It was very clean and quiet. Parking a little bit difficult for a large pick up truck, but a good night sleep.

We were very pleased with our stay. The room is large, clean, with a nice bathroom and comfy bed. Breakfast was good with many warm or cold choices in a nice room. We've stayed here before and hope to, again.
