Diablo Mountain Inn
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Walnut Creek
Reviewed 12 July 2016

Looking for a place to stay or just stopping through the area? If your check list is clean, affordable and easy access to the freeway, this hotel is for you. This is a family run, no frills place. I liked the very hard bed but my husband didn't. When we first booked it, we thought the whole hotel was pet friendly but found out they only have two pet friendly rooms. Be aware of this and call to ask about details. The breakfast was fresh fruit, cereal and toast. A sign says they have gluten free options if you ask. After three days, the rooms still smelled fresh and clean without heavy cleaner smell. I appreciated that so much. As a female, I didn't feel concerned about safety at any point of stay there.

Room Tip: Our room 117 was quiet all night.

Old style California motel (room entrances were direct from the outside) The room and fixtures were clean and had a microwave, refrigerator, wifi and good TV) The property has been here for many years, apparently run by the same family. They were considerate and extremely helpful with directions and recommendations. My room was showing a little age (tiny sink, no vanity), but everything worked and it was very clean. For the price, it was fine. Breakfast choices were limited, but there was no crowd in the early morning. Not much in the immediate neighborhood, which also meant it was quiet. Parking is in their own lot and was free.

This is an old-school, family-run California motel. Upon arrival, the room was impeccably clean and even fresh-smelling. The furniture was a bit dated, but perfectly functional. The air conditioner worked just fine. TV had a myriad of channels. I did not use the free wi-fi since I carry my own 4G hot spot, but it is available. In the morning, there was a free breakfast in the lobby with fresh fruit, a choice of cereals, breads and rolls, and hard-boiled eggs. The food was fresh and perfectly adequate. It is very close to the freeway, which is a double-edged sword -- it's easy to access, but there is some freeway noise that makes it into the room. It is reasonably priced and is close to the trendy downtown section of Walnut Creek.

Other reviews have said it all: clean, freeway noise, older updated property. We had an upstairs queen room, small but adequate. We just could not get their wifi there. Maybe rooms closer to the office get better reception. Very nice breakfast with fresh fruit. Coffee sadly lacking. Nice location. We walked 5 blocks after dark to a restaurant with no safety worries. We've stayed in and near Danville and Dublin a lot over the past 40 years to visit family. We couldn't find anything there the night of our stay for a reasonable overnight stay. This lodge is a great find for the price.

We did a one night stay for a class reunion.

Check in was easy.

Parking was busy late at night. They have their own lot.

Room is nice and clean.

You have to borrow an ironing board, which is a small table top one.

Breakfast is just cereals and muffins, coffee, juice and milk. But enough to hold us over until our next stop.
