We were here over Labor Day weekend. Although full, it was quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful with all our questions about the area. The area around the hotel appeared safe, as we walked to a couple of surrounding restaurants in the evening. Even though our room faced Main street, we could hear no road noise from inside...

Nice hotel with excellent front desk staff (Jon?) and superb breakfast. Room was good generous size with iron, hairdryer etc and comfortable bed (choice of pillows. Firm or soft). My only gripe, and what kept me from scoring higher was that the nearby BUSY road could be heard within the room, so you may not get the perfect sleep. Also...

We were recommended this hotel by family, and it definitely lived up to expectations. We used the hotel as a base to commute in to San Francisco, mainly due to the overpriced hotels with no parking in central San Fran. The Baht train is only 15 minute walk from the hotel and costs $5.40 one way to get into central...

Stayed over the Labor Day weekend. Lots of people here, but you wouldn't have known it because the halls are wide and carpeted. Fairly new and well maintained. Breakfast can get a little repetitive over a couple of days but it is free. The only drawback is that it faces onto Highway 680 and the background noise of the traffic...

Excellent stay! Ian at check in was amazing and very helpful. I'm thankful for such an easy check in. Great breakfast and clean quiet room. The entire hotel was very clean. We will definitely be back next year, thank you!

We stayed here for a few days while in the Bay Area. The hotel was easy to find and located close (10-minute walk) to the Pleasant Hill BART station, giving convenient access to San Francisco. The room was comfortable and quiet, although the air conditioner was noisy. Everything functioned well, although the facing on bathroom vanity was loose and a...

I booked a room here online for 7 nights in August 2016. I chose this hotel based on a number of factors, one being the nightly rate. When I checked out yesterday, the bill was higher than I'd anticipated. Looking at the summary I saw the cost for my penultimate night was 68% (about $120.00) higher than the rate I...

Very nice room and a convenient location. Nice clean pool and plenty big. The rooms were clean and spacious. Our room was near the entrance to the pool so it got a little noisy one evening. Our room also was plagued with an annoying noise that we couldn't identify. We first thought it was a neighbor's tv but ruled that...

This location was great. 5 nights with the 2 kids and wife. Short walk to BART was a big plus. Staff were friendly and helpful. A big shout out to my main man Adryan who was especially helpful during a stressful time at the front desk. I'd stay again!

This is an excellent value as it includes underground parking and a substantial breakfast. The hotel is well-located and the grounds neat, tidy and modern. The staff have been consistently helpful. You can ask for sundries at the desk if you need them. The rooms are average but clean and beds very comfortable. It works nicely for a short stay.
