We just spend one night, the room was great, just renovated, the beds were really good. Everything was cleaned. Very friendly staff, check in/out was smooth, they offered cookies when we arrived the kids were very happy. If we need to stay in that area again we will come back to this property.

Indian Trail, North Carolina

I stayed here for work July 15-19. This hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the BART train. I really did not enjoy the walk over. You have to walk through a few busy intersections. Why not take the shuttle? Their shuttle only runs from 8:00am-4:00pm. Pretty dissapointing. I was working from 7:00am-4:00pm in Concord so the shuttle was...

Valrico, Florida
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We enjoyed our stay. There was ample parking and the facility was very clean. It would be easily navigable for any handicapped visitors. The staff was courteous and it was within easy reach of the freeway. The only detractor was that it had no dining facility but there were plenty available close by.

This is a good HI Express with a nice courtyard and pool. Rooms are typical American style size and appointments with a slight budget feel to the bathroom. I normally stay in this hotel when in Walnut Creek but will have to reconsider in the future. I continue to be shocked at the wastefulness of serving breakfast to literally hundreds...

Walnut Creek is a 30-45 minute drive from San Francisco. The drive is well worth the cost savings to stay at this nice hotel. The rooms are spacious, the staff is very friendly and the building is in very good shape. Parking is free. There are several restaurants close by and shopping is a short drive away. The breakfast area...

I stayed here with my husband for three nights. The hotel and room were clean and staff were always prompt when we had a request for a shuttle to the nearby BART station. Breakfast selection was good and they switched it up a little every morning so you don't have to eat the same stuff every day. The only complaint...
