We had an excellent stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Walnut Creek. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was really nice. The rooms that we stayed in were spotless. Could not find a fault with this hotel. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the Walnut Creek area.

We paid a surcharge for a courtyard room on our recent 3-night stay and had a quiet view of the garden. The bbq on Wednesday night was outstanding - quantities are limited so be there right at 5:30. The grilled burgers, brats and chicken were excellent and wine and beer was on offer too. The shuttle service to the BART...

We stayed here while visiting the SF Bay area, specifically because we wanted to use BART to ride into San Francisco. We found that the hotel was only a short walk away from the station and convenient! (Either use the bike path or overpass to cross the freeway and the Pleasant Hill/ Contra Costa Center station is almost right across,...

I stayed here for work July 15-19. This hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the BART train. I really did not enjoy the walk over. You have to walk through a few busy intersections. Why not take the shuttle? Their shuttle only runs from 8:00am-4:00pm. Pretty dissapointing. I was working from 7:00am-4:00pm in Concord so the shuttle was...
