The 'closet' was a hanging rack next to the TV. The room wasn't very nice and the service wasn't good. I noticed they had a sign that the breakfast is now $5.50. We didn't try it. It was just a little less than an ok place.

we stayed at this dreary place for 2 nights. it is right off the freeway & central to where we needed to be. after reading the other reviews I see we stayed in the old part next to 680.
awful smell to the room & still don't know <or want to know> what the stain on the floor is.
the staff were all friendly & helpful. we didn't eat the $6 breakfast, it looked like the standard steam table hotel fare. there are many good resturants near by. hey, Denny's is just down the road. will not stay here again.

Your customer service was very poor. Noticed that most employee did not do good to guest during their interaction. There was no smile or greetings to the guest. Most of our members who attended the events (Couples for Christ) which was approximately 250 guest have the same issues. and every time we address a problem especially the front desk he or she will not own the problem and instead will let us do or resolve the issues. In others words no help we can get from them only by giving us the telephone no to call.

I would recommend that your employees must under go a Customer Service seminar and improve your customer service.

This hotel is really good is cheaper compare to the ones that are near by the only thing is how rude are some workers such one of the ladies from the breakfast team we spend 7 days there 2 days she was nice and polite but the rest she seems to be mad the other thing is the lady who does the rooms she usually got into the room to change towels and bed sheets she never touch the shower, mirror, or shower floor the service was horrible we report the shower light a guy show up on the room knock the door and said (your light doesn't work?) got into the room, left and never said hi or bye even though we were polite I mean is he work but they can train their staff to be polite or at least smile we all have problems and get tired of working but come on you can be positive anyway you have to do it and deal with people who pay your check =) I will stay there again is a nice place

This really is two hotels, one very old section on the side close to the freeway, and a newer section, beside it. The section next the freeway is a dump and needs to be torn down. The newer section is a shakey two star. My wife and I spent five nights in this hotel in February. The first night in the old section in a room that reminded us of a run down Motel 6. The other four nights were in the newer section. That room wasn't too bad. The free breakfast is ok, but the coffee tasted like it was recycled from one of yesterday's meeting rooms. The ratings below refer to the newer section. The old section is dump!

I usually stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Walnut Creek but there prices have gone thru the roof so I decided to try the Clarion instead. Very nice upgraded rooms. Beautiful Lobby. The only thing that could have been better was the Fitness Center. The machines are in need of upgrading and I don't believe the room was cleaned everyday.
Very quiet, as well, even though it was right off of 680.

Room Tip: If you take the 2nd Floor in the Tower be aware that the outside light "uplight" meaning e...
