Walnut Creek, California
Reviewed 7 August 2013

The hotel is decent. Parking rate was fair ($10), and the room was good. We came during peak season, and paid what I would say is an unfair price for this standard of hotel ($180), but it is what it is. If I paid closer to $100, I'd be very happy. Clean, serviceable, and within walking distance of a heck...

Nice property with the expected amount of accouterments for this price range. Centrally located for all activities.. Check in experience was pleasant enough.. Even though we had a car, we opted out for a cab to Pike's Place. On inquiring for a cab at the front desk, we were treated to a ride in their Lincoln Town car limo service...

My son and I recently spent a few days in Seattle and stayed at the Holiday Inn on Dexter. We arrived in town on Wednesday before noon because my son had to register for his University course online at 11:30. When I asked at the check-in if we could just use the Wi-Fi because we were far too early to...

We picked this hotel because of the close proximity to the Space Needle and EMP Museum. Underground parking garage for our Harley was excellent -- we parked and walked to the attractions. Check-in was easy and the rooms met my expectations for a HI. Clean rooms, comfortable beds. Don't get this Holiday Inn confused with the one directly behind it...

We stayed here on July 4th and it was great to be able to walk down to the water and watch the fireworks show and walk right back!

Parking is quite a challenge. You have to have a pass to get into the garage, but how do you check in if you can't park? Longest line I have ever experienced for breakfast. In fact at times it was standing room only. But, it is down town, you can walk anywhere. The staff were very helpful! Amazing that they...

The rooms in this hotel are nice and extremely clean. I had a 2 queen bed room with microwave and small refrigerator, and a very nice large HD TV.
