My husband and I haven't stayed at a Holiday Inn Express and were pleasantly surprised by this property. The room was spacious, although the hallway carpet was kind of worn. The breakfast was exceptional for this level of hotel with a couple of omelette choices and a couple of sausage options in addition to a nice array of fruit and...

We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights. We chose it to avoid paying San Francisco higher rates, and to be in a less crowded, touristy location. The room was good, and very spacious. The staff was great, and the pool area was very well kept. Its location is ideal to explore San Francisco, as it is very close to...

Since retiring I don't travel as much as I used to for business. I still have a business in Oakland that requires personal attention one day a week, which is what brought me to need a hotel for one night. I was attending a party in Walnut Creek and needed to be in Oakland early the next day, so this...

Everything is on the high end for Holiday Inn Express properties including the price. The staff was very good. I was shocked that they discontinued the Newspaper. When you are paying over $200/night this is petty. Hopefully, going forward they will reconsider

So I got in late - 11 pm - front desk was reasonably personable; walking down the hall to my room I see a weimaraner in the work out room with a leash but seemingly alone. I get checked in and drop onto the bed and it felt like it was a mattress on a rock; but actually it was...

The hotel was nice and clean, very comfortable. The staff was always polite and accommodating with a nice complimentary breakfast. Free indoor parking. Quiet place and larger than it looks from the front. Nice bar/restaurant right across the street.

This was a very nice location, comfortable room and most of the staff was fantastic. The downfall to my stay was fighting to get the return of my amenities deposit back. I spent probably 5 -6 hours talking with staff and my bank to get the deposit returned to my credit card with no luck! Finally after 30 days (yes...

I often stay at this hotel when I am in the Danville/Alamo/Walnut Creek area seeing clients. Hotels in the areas are fairly expensive and over the past 7-8 years I think I have tried them all.

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.
