Can be a little noisy but the location can't be beat and the customer service was exceptional. The room was clean and the goodies in the lobby in the morning were better than most! Wifi and hookups easy

We only stayed for one night and needed to leave early the next morning. The staff was willing to open the breakfast room a little early so that we could grab something to eat before we checked out. Very pleasant to deal with and very helpful. Our room was a refurbished queen that was tastefully decorated with a comfortable bed....

Made a reservation through Expedia that said free cancellations. We had an emergency come up and knew we wouldn't be able to make the first night 24 hours in advance. Called the hotel directly and the lady said sorry the free cancellation is 3 days in advance. I asked to talk to the manager and she said that she couldn't...

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. I am so sorry that you recall our interaction so negatively. My perspective of our conversations certainly differs but please know that I am sorry for your frustrations. As we discussed over the telephone, unfortunately, due to the small size of the inn we are unable to be flexible with Expedia's 72...

Other reviews have detailed facts about this 1950s relic motor court on Route 24 at the west end of Walnut Creek. Small. clean. Somewhat noisy underneath the 680 flyover ramp. Great location on 24 within one half mile of Ruth's Chris, P.F. Changs, etc. Good neighborhood. Typical Silicon Valley charming village overtaken by high end urban sprawl. The rooms look...

I had to take my Mom to Kaiser from Stockton for an early morning procedure. This motel was less than a mile from the hospital. While it really doesn't look like much from the outside, the room was newly remodeled. The bathroom was nice and the bed was super comfy. I liked that the floor was laminate and not carpet,...

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...

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...

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...
