Valrico, Florida
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We enjoyed our stay. There was ample parking and the facility was very clean. It would be easily navigable for any handicapped visitors. The staff was courteous and it was within easy reach of the freeway. The only detractor was that it had no dining facility but there were plenty available close by.

This is a good HI Express with a nice courtyard and pool. Rooms are typical American style size and appointments with a slight budget feel to the bathroom. I normally stay in this hotel when in Walnut Creek but will have to reconsider in the future. I continue to be shocked at the wastefulness of serving breakfast to literally hundreds...

Walnut Creek is a 30-45 minute drive from San Francisco. The drive is well worth the cost savings to stay at this nice hotel. The rooms are spacious, the staff is very friendly and the building is in very good shape. Parking is free. There are several restaurants close by and shopping is a short drive away. The breakfast area...

I stayed here with my husband for three nights. The hotel and room were clean and staff were always prompt when we had a request for a shuttle to the nearby BART station. Breakfast selection was good and they switched it up a little every morning so you don't have to eat the same stuff every day. The only complaint...

I only stayed one night on this most recent trip to Walnut Creek, but everything was great. The internet was fast and stable, so I was able to perform some evening work without interruption.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights on vacation and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The location is perfect, not in the big city traffic, but close enough to everything we needed.

We arrived late after a late arrival into SFO. The front desk attendant was cheerful and greeted us with 2 bottles of water-much needed after a cross country flight! He directed us where to park that was closest to the room-thankfully as the hotel is way larger than it appears from the front! The room was big and clean, predictable...
