nice comfortable room; decent breakfast with delicious muffins and jams; very helpful, friendly staff - the office does not stay open all night but they have a good system for late check-in; overall a very good value; would definitely stay again; we did see someone with a pet - not sure if they are allowed or not

We should have known we were in for an unpleasant surprise when we noticed the disturbing patio area in the middle of the parking lot. It amounted to a roped off area filled with discarded office chairs and a broken table. The room was clean but smelly, definitely superior to the bathroom. The "custom" vanity was far too short for...

First, the good: this is located in Walnut Creek, an upscale city with fine dining, arts, etc so you would expect to pay more. This MOTEL is blocks away from the downtown area. It was clean, in a decent area, free wi-fi, fridge / MW and DVD player. Room and bathroom were decent size. The place is quiet except for...

Clean rooms, a friendly & helpful staff, and the best kept secret place in all of Walnut Creek. "Deluxe" rooms have a fridge and microwave. Parking challenged. No pool. Keep the windows closed, as the freeway noise is high above the property, makes for a constant noise level. The air conditioners noise is a little bothersome, when you close the...

Good location and clean, but there is no excuse for the problems with this hotel. Patched but unpainted walls, numerous holes in top of the dresser where apparently a TV was mounted. Holes in the walls where pictures were removed. No irons in the rooms. Poorly appointed, but cheap and clean.

I get headaches from fragrances and cleaning products.....they do not use the typical heavy "cover-all" cleaners here, use a natural orange cleaner. I was able to stay in one of their rooms that did not have a heavy scent at all. It was clean and we had a good stay for two nights. The breakfast was well furnished with muffins,...

We always take at least one hike on the Iron Horse Trail to visit our children/grandchildren. DMI is an excellent lodging value for Walnut Creek and has easy access to the freeway and downtown. Clean, comfortable bed, and outside corridors hurrah!!

I have stayed here many times and it has always been a pleasant experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit dated but very clean and comfortable.The location is excellent and easy to find. The hard boiled eggs are a nice breakfast surprise and the juice and coffee are good.

The staff was very friendly. They gave me a list of places to eat and even though I didn't get one, they have DVD's for rent. The room was clean and surprisingly quiet for being by the freeway. There was a flat screen TV, microwave and fridge but no coffee pot or ironing board and iron, you have to borrow...
