We spent 10 days at the Holiday Inn Express in Walnut Creek while we were there for visits to family members and our son's wedding. The location is easy to get to from the freeway (although they could stand to make their sign in front bigger or put it on the building). The place is right by a great walking...

We stayed here two non-consecutive nights in a row and had a pleasant experience. Although the hotel is a bit far from the town center, it fit our needs and having a rental car was essential. The covered garage is a nice amenity--well, I think we paid to park--but it was nice to have interior parking. The room was clean...

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast they provide at no extra charge was amazing. They had biscuits and gravy, pancakes, yogurt, mini omelettes, cereals (both hot and cold), coffee, juices, and much more. I would definitely stay there again.

A good place to stay when in Walnut Creek in close proximity to the city and train. Be mindful of traffic outside the window leading to a business behind the hotel. The pool is nice enough and the rest of the amenities are standard for Holiday Inn. It's getting a little run down with carpet stains, but the hotel and...
