Diablo Mountain Inn
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Walnut Creek
Reviewed 12 January 2017

They put me in an "upgraded" (not) room. The matress was old, the heater became and air conditioner about every hour,the microwave broke and they did not have a full length mirror. That said the staff was very helpful in addressing the issues they could. I was given a new microwave and a space heater and a discount.

I have stayed there before and would again because it suites my needs and the staff is kind.

Room Tip: choose the lower level to avoid freeway noise.

When I was checking in there was a man in the lobby making inappropriate sexual comments. The man may have worked there.

I raised this to the guy checking me in. He did nothing.

I ended up checking out, staying someplace else and filing a police report.

I am so sorry for your perception of your experience. Of course, our number one concern is our guest's safety and comfort. Our front desk person's account and security footage of the situation show that the guest you refer to was joking with regards to waiting to check-in with no sexual reference at all. The front desk person witnessed no incident that could have been construed as inappropriate and therefore did not in any way feel there was a reason to intervene. In addition, I believe that the inn contacted the authorities due to your erratic behavior and accusations made towards various male guests and workers on property. Again, please know that the safety of all our guests is our priority.

Smelly cleaning chemicals coming from the carpet? VERY noisy AC units, this place needs an update! Not even a glass to help yourself to the tap water! Good location to restaurants and fabulous shopping.

I have been here before and it was okay but this time I was pretty disappointed. Staying in the Bay area isn't cheap so I chose to stay here again. I went to check in and there was nobody at the desk. I called out and finally had to go looking for someone. The young lady that I found was very friendly and helpful once I found her. My room was tired and run down. The furniture was worse for wear and the bed was hard. If you want an ironing board and iron you have to get it from the desk. There was a small flat screen TV, coffee pot, microwave and fridge. There was a shower but no tub. The motel is close to a busy street and freeway so it is pretty noisy. There are trash cans on the walkway every couple of rooms which could be good or bad depending on your outlook. When you check in you have to agree that if things go missing from your room, you can be charged but there were several places in my room where things were missing off the walls and there was cracked paint in the bathroom, bad patch jobs on the walls, torn walls, torn lampshades, a fly smashed on the window, the AC looked terrible and there were wires hanging from the bottom of the heater. The clock was dirty and so was the carpet. Oddly, there was a solid receptacle plate in the middle of the vanity mirror. It is a shame that it was in such bad shape. The location, although noisy is close to a lot of things and the employees friendly. It needs some care.

I wanted to be able to give this old motor lodge a better rating, but things like the smoke alarm hanging by its wires from the ceiling and the burn holes in the synthetic fiber blankets earn this place an "average" in my book. It appeared clean, if more than a little worn, with some updated touches like the flat screen TV. I always like having a refrigerator in the room for chilled beverages so that was nice. There was some noticeable freeway noise but not enough to interrupt my night's sleep. It is more affordable than other Walnut Creek hotels, and close to downtown and BAR. Free parking right outside the door of your room.
