We stayed for one night over the weekend. The hotel has a nicely remodeled lobby that looks and feels inviting and comfy. We had a room w/two queen beds that were comfortable. The room size is average with a separate desk w/office chair and also an upholstered chair to get comfy in.
The vanity area is separate from the shower/toilet and convenient since one can be in the shower and the other using sink/mirror. The vanity area has very little counter space. It would be very cramped if you have two or more ladies with all their cosmetics, lotions and potions.
The room was very nicely decorated and I especially enjoyed the lighter weight down comforter. I for one don't like it when the covers are too heavy! My one big beef with the accommodations is the air con/heating. You cannot cool below 68 degrees or heat above 75. We both found the room just too warm and stuffy at 68 degrees to sleep comfortably in. I tried to open the window during the night but could not get it to budge. By early morning the hubby tried the window and with some strong arming was able to open it a few inches....Ah, finally some relief from the warmth and stuffiness.
Overall, we had a nice stay, just wish we had gotten that darn window open earlier.
On a side note for the ladies, the shower has an overboard flow restrictor on it, so washing long or thick hair may prove daunting. It will probably take 3x - 4x longer than usual....so be prepared.
I used to live in the area and am very familiar with the surroundings. This is a very safe area. You are on the edge of town near Bishop Ranch business park and there is not very much real close (although a small strip mall connected to hotel lot) you would be perfectly safe to go out for a walk anytime day or night. If you go east on Bollinger Canyon road for about a mile there is a neighborhood shopping center called The MarketPlace. There are several small restaurants (Chinese, filipino, indian, pizza, sushi, alehouse, a burger joint, pasta, Buffalo Wildwings, Subway, etc) I have personally been to all except the Indian food place. They are all good, comfortable, relatively inexpensive (for the area) neighborhood places to eat. Also CVS, grocery store and Starbucks. If you head north on San Ramon Valley rd for about a mile or so you will also come to a more populated area with neighborhood shopping/food, etc. For more upscale eateries, just head north on hwy 680 (about 11-13 minutes away) into Walnut Creek and exit at South Main St. Just drive straight up the road and you will be in the downtown area with lots of upscale dining choices to choose from. Also an outdoor mall called Broadway Plaza with Neiman Marcus, Nordstom, Macy's, etc.
I would stay here again when I am back in the area.
