"Repeat Customer, If Needed..."
The hotel is extremely close to the freeway and the parking lot was far from ideal. The room was clean and the other guests were quiet, but the noise from the freeway traffic was loud and we couldn't park near our room.

Cozy little place, well run and well maintained. They accommodated our need for an extra bed at the last minute. Fit the bill nicely for two nights.

"Old but decent place, good for a stayover"
The good: It's located in Walnut Creek, an upscale area with fine dining, arts, museums etc and this motel is just blocks from the downtown area. It's clean and in a decent area. My room came with a fridge, MW and a DVD player. The bad: It's a very old motel, probably built in the 50's, and it's showing it's age. The rooms, while spacious enough, have phone and TV cables running exposed. My room had an old thermostat hanging from the wall, a shower door that had no handle and a bed that creaked a bit. The furniture is very dated and scratched. Bottom line, these are old rooms making due with what they are. If you're okay with just a comfortable room for a night or two in a decent area, this may do for you. I would not bring a family or a date if you're looking to make an impression. Overall, I would probably stay again if the price were right.

"Great Location"
We stayed at this motel in June 1972 when house shopping. We needed a place close to Berkeley (1/2 hr.) After searching several options we selected Diablo Mountain Inn. It couldn't have been a better choice...close to restaurants, freeway entrance west, great bed, but most of all, we remembered the first time we stayed (for a week 43 years ago). It was perfect. We liked the bathroom dressing area being separate from the sleeping room. It could have used a mirror in the dressing area as we were rushed to get out in the morning. The host gave us a coffee pot and muffins for our early morning departure. We will stay again when we need to be in the east bay.

"An okay stay, but a lot of problems."
The neighborhood it's located in is great and convenient. It's located very close to places to eat and public transits within walking distance. They're nicely sized rooms for a short stay and with free Wifi and daily room service. The cons on the other hands, the rooms are very outdated (outdated Televisions and they still use VCRs?) and there is some damage to the floors and walls that need to be repaired. The beds are very uncomfortable - and while the location is convenient, the walls are very thin. So if you don't hear your neighbors in the other rooms, you're going to hear the traffic all night, so hopefully you brought a small fan to block out the noise. There also are no small fridges for your drinks and there are no microwaves in the rooms - so if you have food or drinks, I wouldn't recommend bringing it with you unless you plan on eating it the same day because there's no way of keeping it fresh. I would recommend this hotel only if you are needing something more affordable, or your trip is very short. Otherwise if you can spare a few extra dollars, I would take the other hotels nearby.

"Older property, but well maintained"
This property is older in the style of 50's and 60's motor inns. Desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. Desk is closed at night - I believe the owner works the desk herself. Rooms were dated, but clean and well maintained. TV's were a challenge, but once you figured it out it worked well. There is a little freeway noise, but not a problem for me. Overall, I enjoyed my stay - location was very convenient.

"Inexpensive motel close to BART and good food"
When I visit friends or attend an event in the Bay Area, I stay here. I usually travel alone, and I like to keep expenses low. The Walnut Creek BART station, a Safeway store, a Hertz location, and lots of restaurants are within walking distance. The rooms are clean. Amenities are minimal, and the TV didn't work well, but I don't sit in my room and watch TV on a vacation.

"The place smells awful."
First, the lobby and rooms all smell like old mold hidden by some sanitizer. The thought of eating the "free breakfast" was revolting, but fortunately not a concern as it was not offered until 7:30 AM, by which time anyone conducting business around Walnut Creek has been gone for an hour. It is a bare-bones motel at an upscale rate. Friends will not let friends stay there.

"Disgusting!"
It appears that this property has not had even the slightest basic upgrades in 20 years. There was a VCR in the room for goodness sake. The cleanliness of the bedspread was questionable. The front door was filthy and in poor repair. The furniture was stained and also filthy. Various construction tools were strewn about the property and looked as though they had not been touched in years. The "breakfast" was a Costco special with bread still in the original wrappers. The ice machine next to our room was in poor repair and very noisy. The office was filthy and in complete disarray. I definatly would not recommend this property for anything except demolition and replacement with a real hotel. Believe it or not, the intense freeway noise was the highlight of our stay.

Personnel at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. A small house behind had barking dogs. Not sure if this was part of the Inn. Our room had comfortable chairs, a flat scrren, small refrigerator and microwave. VCR library at the front desk was very good. Breakfast could be improved upon, bread was frozen etc. Air conditioner was very noisy! We would return as we did not spend much time in the Inn and the price was right.

"Would stay again"
Nice hotel, clean, bed did not scare me with stains, slept peacefully. Was given a handicap room, not sure why. Front desk kid was very friendly. Close to downtown Walnut Creek. Only thing was 3 days prior to my arrival the hotel called and asked me if I was going to confirm my stay. I told her i did not know what she meant, she said i had to call and confirm otherwise they would give my room away? I travel often and never call the hotel before i arrive, i simply arrive. She told me they had a waiting list. I told her of course i still wanted my room. She asked when I would be arriving and i told her why all the questions, i booked the room, i paid for the room, end of story. I will stay again though.

"Old mattresses, few outlets for electronics."
Directly off highway 24 in Walnut Creek, the room on the 2nd floor got all the highway noises. The room was also located adjacent to the trash dumpster, so we were awakened by the garbage truck at 6 a.m. The hotel is old and has not been updated in decades, the beds were worn out and the pillows flat and hard. The water ran hot and cold throughout morning showers and the lights flickered constantly. The air conditioning unit was falling out of it's hole in the wall and was barely able to keep the room at a comfortable temperature. The room had a microwave and a refrigerator, but no in room coffee and I have no idea where the ice machine was or even if they had one. It was conveniently located in Walnut Creek and the continental breakfast was fresh fruit, cereal, muffins or boiled eggs, which was nice.

"Comfy Stay in Walnut Creek"
I was looking for inexpensive accommodations in the East Bay that were close to BART. Diablo Mountain Inn is about a 15 minute walk from the BART station. The facility is small, and an older property. But, despite being at the junction of two freeway systems, the rooms are very quiet. Everything worked in the room, although the television was a bit of a challenge.

"NOT AS GOOD AS IT USED TO BE"
The best things about this motel are its location right off the freeway and the convenience of a gas station just across the street. The staff were also friendly and helpful. What was very disappointing, however, was the condition of the room. There were small holes in the bathroom wall where a hair-drier had apparently hung. A strip of wall-paper was missing near the bed. There was no lamp near the reading chair. The air-conditioner was old and unreliable. The bed was merely acceptable. In addition, the exterior of the building looked very run-down, with unpainted plywood convering who-knows-what. I had stayed in this motel before, some years ago, and didn't hesitate to go back, but I won't be staying there again. I'm sure there are better options in Walnut Creek.

this facility is old and has a large amount of wear but they do a good job keeping it clean and making small repairs. It is also directly under the highway but i didn't notice the noise inside my room. the location is safe and convenient to the highways. there aren't restaurants in the immediate area but it is a 10 minute walk to the main drag with everything you may want or even the bart station.

"Great Place"
I was a bit nervous as I'm a newbie to travel and hotels. I easily booked a room at the Inn through Expedia.com. It's a two hour drive from home to the hotel, but check in was easy and quick (very pleasant receptionist#. The room was laid out nearly perfectly #I couldn't open the refrigerator where it was placed under the desk). The room was quite comfortable. Although the Inn is near a freeway, I found it very quiet and I felt safe. Nice location for where I needed to go...easily two minutes to the studio and two minutes back to the hotel. I have the need to travel once or twice a month to the same area for the next several months and will definitely be staying at the Inn every time. Check out was just as easy and quick, and again, the receptionist was pleasant and friendly.

We enjoyed our stay at this little hotel. It was right under a freeway. We thought it would be noisy Nd it wasn't. The heater was louder. The bed was ok. The bathroom was clean and refurbished. We had plenty of space so overall it was a comfortable stay. We liked being close to my family and having our own space. They are one of the few hotels in the area that didn't charge for parking which was a nice benefit. We will stay again.

After I checked in and entered my room, a middle aged woman started screaming at me to get out of my room immediately because she was painting the walkway. I had dropped my belongings inside already and and turned to retrieve my purse to leave and she continued screaming at me to not go in, I retrieved my purse and left my bags inside and left. She called the receptionist and started screaming at him for allowing me to check in early. The receptionist came and apologize and said he would move my belongings to another room. Other than this incident, the furnishings were old, the towels frayed, the bed was not the most comfortable and they withheld $25 from my credit card 'until they see that nothing happened in the room'. I would never go back again.

I stayed a night and a day and had a very pleasant time. Location was perfect for the meeting I had in Walnut Creek, and commute from there to San Francisco the next day was very easy given proximity to BART. Price was the best I could find for the area. Most importantly, the staff were extremely nice and accommodating, despite my checking in at nearly 10PM. Breakfast was also great!

We ended up getting there early and the receptionist did everything possible to get our room ready. She was extremely nice. The room was quaint, clean and comfortable. The hotel is right off the freeway and walking distance to the BART station. This was perfect as we didn't want to try to drive through busy traffic.

I read the reviews and knew what to except. The older motel, the freeway noise and the location. I pick the motel because of the location. It was really close to where I needed to be. If you can not sleep with traffic noise going on all night and if you are looking for an updated motel this is not for you. But if you near a motel near the west end of Walnut Creek, then this is the place.
