we booked at the last minute and looked at several locations none of which looked as good as this one for the price. we were pleased with the clean rooms and very good service provided by nina, the manager. she needs a raise. good work staff. the price out did the other hotels close by and it's just a couple of blocks from the bart train and a nice cafe.
First, the good news: The location is good; a decent breakfast restaurant is a couple of blocks away; the BART station is within walking distance.
Now, the bad news: Our room hadn't had much more than a repaint or two since the Nixon administration - yes, it was technically clean, but everthing in the room was old; No internet connection; the front door and the bathroom door jambs both showed signs of previous forced entry (really); the BART station is so close that you can hear each train arrive and depart throughout the night; thin walls makes it easy to hear your neighbor's TV; no rooms with 2 queen beds are available - only 2 doubles.
Neutral: The staff seemed competent, but not particularly interested; the price is low-ish, but not when the room is taken into account; entering the driveway from Ygnacio Valley Rd. is tricky the first time.
This motel has an unintentional, old-school Route 66 feel to it. It needs an update. I'll pay more and stay elsewhere next time.
There is a friendly, family atmosphere. All staff is available and flexible. I have stayed here for 15 years to see my aging mother. I live in Arizona, and it's just like home to me!! Thanks for all your help and amenities!
Friendly, efficient staff. Clean, comfortable rooms. Very reasonable prices. I have also stayed at the Hillside Inn a few miles away and this place beats it hands down. If you need to be in the Walnut Creek/Lafayette area and are on a budget -- look no further, this is the place. I am in the area two weekends a month and stay here everytime. I enjoy the motel and the friendly staff.
If your travelling to the Bay Area a good place to stay in the East Bay is the Walnut Creek Motor Lodge. I've stayed there numerous times over the past few years. Rooms are clean, hotel is on the edge of a town (Walnut Creek) and the Bart (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is only a block away. Bart goes into San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley and many other places
