Walnut Creek, California
Reviewed 12 May 2015

The room and the property were clean. The hotel staff were pleasant and efficient. Two complaints: there were no coffee packets in the room (didn't notice until the morning) and the breakfast room was not well laid out.

After having read a few negative reviews, I was wary of staying here. But I decided to give it a try, and am glad I did. What spoke to me first was the exterior of the inn..well-maintained & clean (looks like recently painted).

We booked this hotel as we were doing a road trip to look at schools. As it turned out, we didn't need to stay here and I called at 2:50pm on 4/17/2015 to cancel on a 4pm cancellation deadline. Here is how the conversation went: Me: Hi, I'm calling to cancel our room for tomorrow night. Guy at hotel: sorry,...

We stayed in a roomy room that was very clean, quiet and slept beautifully in their comfortable bed. Never made breakfast so unable to address that area or their pools, which many were using and enjoying. Pleasantly surprised and reevaluating this chain for future travel requirements.
