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...

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...

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...

This is a small motel on the edge of Walnut Creek. Good for people looking for somewhere to stay for a few nights at an affordable rate. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom is sizable. The rooms are clean.

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...

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,...
