The hotel is clean and appears modern and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was Holiday Inn Express standard and worked well for us. We were visiting the Bay area and chose the hotel in part for proximity to a BART station (they even have a shuttle service during the week). It turned out we did not use the BART but really enjoyed being right on the extensive walking trail that goes along a water canal and all the way to Mt. Diablo. It looks as if you are walking into a ditch but after going through the underpass beneath Main Street the trail is open obvious and green. It also connects to several other trails.
My 10 year old and I walked to Larkey Park in the morning following the trail that starts near the hotel. There were two large areas of children's play equipment in a clean open green park which also contains a Wildlife Museum. And we were back in time for breakfast. This would also be a benefit for anyone traveling with dogs (of which there were a number of people).
We had only been planning on staying one night but ended up staying three because of the convenience of the location and the comfort of the room.
