This is a good HI Express with a nice courtyard and pool. Rooms are typical American style size and appointments with a slight budget feel to the bathroom. I normally stay in this hotel when in Walnut Creek but will have to reconsider in the future. I continue to be shocked at the wastefulness of serving breakfast to literally hundreds of people each day using paper plates and plastic utensils. I am sure this hotel is filling a couple of good size garbage trucks each week with paper and plastic headed for the landfill. Even more shocking was a Trip Advisor "Green" award prominently displayed in the lobby. Green awards should be more judisiciously awarded. I have brought this wastefulness to management's attention on several occasions but apparently they are locked into their paradigm of using paper and plastic.
So if you are offended by this gross lack of environmental sensitivity, you would be better off staying at one of the several other good options in Walnut Creek.
