The staff at this Holiday Inn property were all friendly, polite and attentive. The rooms were clean offering a comfortable bed and above average amenities for an HI Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carole1212 Great overall experience!
I checked out of another highly rated hotel in Walnut Creek because of poor service and other problems. Holiday Inn Express is definitely the place to stay in Walnut Creek; this was my second visit. The Holiday Inn Express in Portland, Oregon, where I now live, is also superb. Each provides excellent service, a quiet comfortable room with easy chair for reading, fabulous breakfast, free newspaper.

We found the exterior to be a upgrade and the lobby, but the rooms needs to be renovated.

Really wonderful staff especially Ian and Naomi. Was not expecting much, just a sleep but in the end sorry I couldn't stay longer and later. There is something peacetul and appealing to such a simple place. Garden and pool area are especially nice.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pourgirl Nice room, great bbq, limited shuttle and parking
We paid a surcharge for a courtyard room on our recent 3-night stay and had a quiet view of the garden.
The bbq on Wednesday night was outstanding - quantities are limited so be there right at 5:30. The grilled burgers, brats and chicken were excellent and wine and beer was on offer too.
The shuttle service to the BART station was one of the reasons we chose this hotel, but it's not well publicized that the last shuttle is at 4:00pm. It's not a long walk back to the hotel but involves heavily-trafficked highways, and the taxi drivers at the BART station are not at all pleased to make the short run there.
Hotel parking is free but limited, and clogged with clueless SUV drivers cramming their vehicles into compact spaces.

We stayed here two nights for two concerts, Aerosmith (canceled) and Paul McCartney in SF. Friendly front desk service ready to help. Housekeeping did an excellent job when we were out for the day. Nice clean grounds, nice outdoor pool. Quiet nights both nights. We'll definitely book here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kwoh910 Hotel rooms smell like smoke
I agree with the Yelp reviews. Some of the rooms smell like smoke. I was moved twice (room 120 and 114 reeked of stale cigar smoke). Finally got moved to room 102 (all during the span of 5 hours). Housekeeping used a solvent that caused my throat to swell so for those who are allergic/sensitive to smoke/smells, stay away from this hotel. I will say that the front desk staff were very responsive and kind to move me to another room. But for the price I'm paying, I don't want to move 2 times in one night when I'm exhausted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BookLady93 Great choice in Walnut Creek
Stayed here while visiting my son. Location is good; you can walk to BART station, a Starbucks and an IHOP. Chic- fila right next door. There is a shuttle service if you want to go downtown - it only runs until 4 pm tho. Very clean hotel, the staff is very pleasant. Pretty large breakfast selection, however, it is primarily carbs. Some mass-produced eggs and bacon or sausage. Lots of sweet rolls, bagels, bread, biscuits, cereals. Some yogurt, but it is sweetened fruity kind.. Apples and bananas. The beds were super comfortable, lots of pillows. Good shower pressure on the first floor, not so great on the second floor (I moved to a single room after my son left). I would stay here again. Parking garage under building.

A relaxing and comfortable stay close to an event I was attending in Concord. Great touch to have the guest barbecue on Wednesday night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ColoradoResident01 Great service
Great hotel - excellent service, very good breakfast (as in real food), very good facilities (i.e. pool). Check in and check out were very straight forward and efficient. I misplaced the receipt, so I called a couple of weeks later and had a copy in my inbox within minutes.
Mattresses and pillows were not optimal for my preference, but good enough to get a good night sleep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RonPW Friendly and secure atmosphere with very good accomidations.
Holiday Inn Express was easy to find and to get to from the Highway. The premises are clean and maintained. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Every staff member I came in contact with was friendly and helpful. I will be returning to Walnut Creek in a couple of months and plan to stay at the Holiday Express Inn located there.

I will always stay at Holiday Inn Express. Why, because of the Staff. They answer all questions. The Housekeeping is excellant. The grounds, lobby, hallways and rooms are always kept clean. If a guest has any problems they are immediately taken care of.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nothanks2222 Smells of smoke
These rooms are all supposed to be nonsmoking. We had to go through four rooms to get one that didn't reek of smoke. The staff was sympathetic and accommodating, but they clearly knew there is a problem at this facility. Unless you're a smoker, don't stay here.

If you are traveling to the Walnut Creek area I highly recommend staying here. If at all possible get a room that faces the courtyard. This was the quietest hotel I have stayed at in a very long time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NYU parent Very Disappointed Stay; Old and unclean
This HIE looks very old.
Old mattresses are put in the parking lot in plain sight - looks like a junk yard.
Carpeting in the hallways and in the room looks old with stains. This is the worst HIE that I've stayed at, and I have stayed at many.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Asian Life Price relatively good, not up to usual HI Express standards
Hotel price was good relative to other hotels in the area. However, it seemed older and not as kept up. Front desk staff was excellent, but housekeeping staff not so. No in-room safe. Used to Holiday Inn Express hotels to being no frills, but clean, modern, great overall service.

I have stayed in this hotel for several times already and I am always treated with respect and friendliness of the staff. That's one reason why I always come back to this hotel aside from the accessibility and comfort.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kilo-lima Comfortable bed and great service
Checked in pretty late, and there were a lot of guests arriving or needing something from the front desk all at once. The manager was a real pro... considerate and attentive and genuinely concerned with meeting every detail of every need of each guest as quickly as possible. He did his job very well despite the pressure.
The room was great... spacious, comfortable... bed was comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent!
