    « BW Stay »

    Very quiet, comfortable clean room, breakfast ok 1st am, 2nd am the eggs (?) were like rubber, & the roasted potatoes were obviously not fresh! Waffle maker fine! The location good, right off a freeway, & parking was fine.

    « Great hotel close to fun area and 680! »

    I traveled to Danville for business and enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The property was clean, safe and employees were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. I will definitely stay here again!

    « No electricity no hot water »

    No electricity no hot water. No emergency generator no offer to compensate customers for inconvenience Manager could provide no eta. Emergency lighting provided through glow sticks. Front desk service not even willing for a late checkout so people could wait to get ready when power was restored.

    « There're better Best Westerns »

    Nothing about this hotel was particularly bad, it was just not as awesome as it could have been. The rooms were clean, the staff was tolerant, if not friendly. We had a backed up toilet, but it took over forty minutes to get someone up there to fix it, and we were checking out anyway, so we ended up having to use the bathroom downstairs in the lobby.

    « Prices don't justify the old and often noisy hotel »

    I stay here when I want to visit Danville but lately been moving farther out because the prices they are charging lately are way out of proportion for the quality of the hotel, rooms, noise from highway and other guests, etc. When you can book it for under $100 it would be a good value. At $150-$180 you will feel ripped off.

    « Great location and great value ! »

    This Best Western is in a wonderful location and is a great property. It is the motel style where you park right outside your door. The motel was clean and the people friendly. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

    « Nice and clean hotel »

    This was a very nice Best Western. They had a good breakfast and the rooms were very clean. The staff was very accommodating and the hotel was nice an quiet. I did ask for an I interior corridor room, because I don't like my door out in the open for security reasons. The staff was happy to accommodate my request.

    « Great stay »

    Love the location . Great size room . Nice decor . Great breakfast . Friendly professional staff . Safe . Close to iron pony exercise trail . Loved Amici's across the street for dinner . Parking nice . Pretty landscaping .

    « Sycamore Inn 2016 »

    We often stay at this hotel due to it's close proximity to the area we visit. Always very accommodating, and friendly staff. Hotel serves breakfast each morning and has a good variety of items. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We have never had a bad experience staying at this hotel.

    « Tesla charger and location were great! »

    The Danville CA location was very good--near nice restaurants. We chose this because of the Tesla chargers, but found the staff very friendly and the rooms clean. Good size fridge helpful, small microwave could have been a bit bigger.

    « Critique »

    Hotel staff was great, very friendly. The hotel is a little outdated, but clean. The only problem is that there is not a elevator. They do have a great suite we stayed in. The restaurant next door is VERY good, highly recommend it. The pool was nice, and it is convenient to the freeway and the Blackhawk Museum

    « Great Location »

    This hotel was in a great location. Right off the freeway and within 40 minutes of San Francisco when there is no traffic. Downtown Danville is right across the freeway from the hotel and down a ways but very close. I recommend going to Downtown Danville for some shopping and outdoor eating. What a cute little town. The hot breakfast at this hotel was disgusting and fake but the continental part of it was fine.

    « Hotel needs serious work »

    Rooms were dated. Need to renovate the hotel. Breakfast was disgusting, Food was not cooked. Would not stay here again. Swimming pool has a sign that states, If You Have Had Diarrhea In The Last Seven Days. Please Do Not Enter The Pool. Are you kidding me? No one used the pool area. This scared everyone off. Place is chancy at best. Not worth the money either!

    « Clean and comfortable »

    Stayed here one night before attending a professional development conference. Check in was easy and the room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is adjacent to a Black Bear Diner, making dinner easy. Staff was apologetic that breakfast was not available before I needed to leave in the morning. Freeway noise did not bother me. The parking lot did get completely full by 10 p.m.

    « Very comfortable stay »

    Well situated for the freeway. Comfortable and clean rooms. Sadly were not able to accommodate any of our requests to have rooms together or on ground floor despite booking months in advance. Couple of maintenance issues fixed immediately. Excellent breakfast available. Would definitely return.

    « Very clean room, amazing staff »

    I cannot emphasize how clean this room was. You also get a lovely hot/cold breakfast assortment every morning. The staff is very accommodating and pleasant. This is a wonderful bargain and a great location.

    « Family Gathering »

    Parents and siblings were in Danville for a family wedding. Of the many possible selections of hotels/motels, those of the family that stayed at the Best Western Danville Sycamore Inn found it to be of great value for the price and very centrally located for our needs. We would certainly stay there on another occasion.

    « This hotel exceeded my expectations »

    The room was comfortable with a great bed. The breakfast offerings exceeded my expectations. The hotel is very convenient for my needs and is surrounded by great restaurants and shopping. Most of all, every staff member provided five-star service going above and beyond to make us feel valued and welcome.

    « Nice Location »

    Stayed here for a night on my way through the Bay Area for work. Manager extremely helpful in getting a ground floor room for me. The restaurant next door is very convenient, as well as the location near the shops on San Ramon Valley Blvd.

    « Great location, quiet room and good value »

    This has become my go to place when staying in the valley. I have stayed in the Marriot, Courtyard Marriott, Hyatt House, Holiday Inn and La Quinta and all are good but this one feels very warm and home like. The breakfast isn't the best...but the rooms are larger, quiet and the beds are just great. I have always felt welcome by the staff like a small hotel/BnB feeling and a warm welcome. If you are looking for a place with good value and quiet with large rooms and a great bed...this is the place for you.

    « Very positive review »

    Outstanding Best Western Property in every aspect. Rooms a little on the small side, but very clean, fully equipped with Micro, fridge, flat screen TV, desk, luggage racks (2), nice bed linens, nice towels, well working A/C, enough room lights, helpful staff, lovely small pool, safe handy parking, quality room magazines, excellent full complimentary breakfast and restaurant adjoining.! Rooms are a little on the pricey side, but very quality property.


    Good location, poor value, fitted sheets slide off the bed corners each time you shift, no elevator. We spent 5 nights miserably because of the sheet issue. My father-in-law and galpal also experienced the same sheet issue. For the price, I am giving this rating a VERY POOR -- because of the value (or lack thereof).

    « It's just fine. »

    We needed a place to stay for one night, something with quick access to the freeway. This hotel did just fine. The room was clean. There is a good California breakfast restaurant adjacent to it (if you don't want the free breakfast included).

    « dog tolerant not friendly »

    Location is good close to walking trail, right next to freeway but noise wasn't too bad. Pet room was on 2nd floor with no elevator. They have you sign a document your pet will not touch any thing in the room, how friendly is that. No mention of the policy when room was booked. I have stayed at Best Westerns where they give you a blanket and water bowl for your pet.

    « No frills, but a good value in a high-priced area »

    Very basic digs but it was clean and all was in order. Danville is a very pricey area. I was here for an event where the overnight accommodations cost $250/night, so I opted for BW. It was fine except for the fire alarm going off at 7:30 am (false alarm.) When I checked in after 5 pm, the desk person had to herself leave to make sure the room was ready. What's with that? Check-in is supposed to be at 4. It's nothing fancy but an okay place to hang your hat.

    « Great place to stay! »

    Wonderful place to stay. The employees made you feel very comfortable and at home. I highly recommend staying here as it is close to everything! Make sure to talk with Carol in the Breakfast dining area, she is such a sweetheart, warm and kind to everyone.

    « This Best Western is functional.... »

    We called the Best Western Sycamore Inn and we found that they were completely full. So, we went online to check that out. We found a room with no problem. The place is very clean but not the most attractive spot. The staff is very helpful which is important when you are in a new place. As for the breakfast. Pancakes and omelets are rather rubbery. We opted for the yogurt and hard boiled eggs with decaf coffee. It`s a functional motel with very comfortable beds and it is very clean which makes it welcoming when you are tired and looking for a good reliable place to stay. It is dog friendly which is good as long as the dog does not bark. There is not a whole lot to do but the area is beautiful in the Spring with green hills..

    « great location, great stay »

    We stayed here while visiting friends in Danville. Location was a 5 minute drive from our friends and all amenities. Breakfast was good. Restaurant was really good too. Pool was really small although we didn't end up using it. Beds were really comfortable, room was spacious and shower had lots of pressure - bonus! whole place felt really clean and well cared for. Would definitely stay here again!

    « Great Service »

    Very helpful staff made our mistakes go away and made our stay very enjoyable. It was dog-friendly and the location is very easy to find. We highly recommend this place. It is within walking distance of at least 3 great eating places and a very nice walking trail.

    « Danville »

    Best Western is well located, clean and comfortable. Black Bear Diner is next door and offers an option for dining. We stay at the hotel when we are in town due to it's location to town and family. Always clean and comfortable.

    « The Only Game in Danville »

    When you have a lock on the lodging options in a small community, its important to maintain an image that is consistent with the community you represent. Danville is considered affluent, popular & intelligent and this BW property does everything to maintain a first class representation of its property at a higher than average price point for a BW property if it were not for the exclusivity. Breakfast could be well improved as the inclusive feature, unless the object is to get a real breakfast at the adjoining Black Bear. The "pool" is essentially a larger wading area and the property could be better off without it. Excellent staff from front desk to housekeeping! The presence of a well maintained floral area adds to the ambiance of a smaller overall property and we woud recommend staying in the inside versus outside area. Some of the best room decor in a BW property we've experienced and the interior color scheme made the room feel bigger than it was, a definite plus point when you spend a lot of time in hotels. The convenience to the immediate Danville shopping/dining areas is a big plus and we highly recommend experiencing In Contro Ristorante downtown Danville...get the lamb chops!

    « Wonderful Family Stay in Danville »

    We stayed for a lacrosse tournament and the Sycamore Inn was just a block from all the amenities of downtown Danville's restaurants and shops. A peaceful and quiet property close to everything. We will stay here again.

    « Just plain dated »

    Just old and run down. Smoking area all over outside areas, may as well be a smoking permitted hotel. Limited cable Tv selections. No elevator. Wall heating/AC. Pool very tiny, breakfast room tiny. Employees friendly. Compared to other choices in this upscale area this hotel needs major renovation, almost knockdown and start over.

    « Best Western Danville »

    This hotel was very clean. The bed was very comfortable. Professional staff. Would stay here again. Only 10 minutes to the San Ramon Conference Center. They give you passes to use the gym that is just a couple minute drive away.

    « You get what you pay for »

    Before I even got in the room I could smell the rank odor, the odor of an old need to get work done to hotel the whole room just didn't smell clean right down to the bedding. The comforter on the bed had a spot on it, don't know what it was and wasn't getting close enough to find out, and the carpets didn't look like they had been vacuumed in a while (when I came in the following day I had to get the housekeeper to vacuum the carpet)

    « March 9, 2016 Stay »

    Nice and courteous staff and more than happy to help with any travel needs. Hotel location is close to restaurants and place of business. Free Wi-Fi and a safe location. Bed was large and very comfortable. TV was nice and internet was available. Breakfast is free with stay.

    « Meets all your needs with friendly staff »

    Spent two nights recently and was pleasantly surprised with the cordial and helpful staff. Free breakfast included options a cut above the typical breakfast buffet. Would definitely stay there again if traveling in the area

    « Corvette Club Blackhawk weekend. »

    Our Corvette Club booked this hotel in Danville because it is centrally located and only a few mile from the Blackhawk Museum. They gave us a good group rate for this area and provided clean attractive rooms for us to stay in. Very nice staff took care of all of our request and provided a good hot breakfast.

    « Continues to impress over stays of many years »

    My husband and I have stayed here many times over the last 10 years to visit my sister. Spacious king room. Accommodating for our electronics. Good BW-style breakfast but with additional variety. Clean. Great location. Rooms have interesting wall photos of old-time Danville supplied by the Museum of the San Ramon Valley (a great visit).

    « Slumlord's Delight »

    First, the entire property smells bad. The reception area is tiny and downright ugly. The air-conditioning system was loud and didn't work well. The bedsprings were shot many years ago and the quality of the bedding was up to jail standards. I don't think there were bedbugs, however. There were no movies on-demand and the TV choices were few and full of commercials. Worst is the noise level from the freeway and other guests coming and going at odd times, such as 3am. What was jokingly called "breakfast" was an assortment of items that were so stale I assumed they were purchased at Costco in bulk years ago. The staff barely speaks English and is completely unconcerned with what should be their responsibilities. All this for a price that would have bought us a night at the Claremont!

    « Great walkable location to downtown Danville »

    Spacious n comfy room w micro n fridge n nice lotions/soaps. Locatiion right by fway yet I had quiet interior room w nice buzz of fan system to drown noises. Appreciated free pc n print at front desk for my biz papers. I missed breakfast but grabngo bag of fruit, water n bar was something yet minimal. Front desk clerk nice. Across st is lovely shop ctr w Starbucks, deluxe gym n few rstrnts. Near hotel is very good n friendly diner. I'd stay here again just to walk downtown n peruse delightful dtown danville.

    « A very nice hotel! »

    My husband's words were "one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in!" which is a great review coming from him. Recently remodeled, clean and great amenities. The beds were incredibly comfortable. Danville is a great area!

    « Good value in a pricey area »

    This is a good value in a really pricey area. The room was very nicely appointed, large, modern and comfortable. I wish this hotel (and most others I stay at) would pay for HD television. It's sad to watch such a nice widescreen TV in standard def. But I wasn't there to watch a lot of TV.

    « Danville Family visit »

    Very reliable good, clean and quiet room with good reading lights. Convenient location. Exceptional staff:courteous and conscientious Have stayed there before when visiting family. Will stay there again.

    « Immaculate and Spacious Accommodations »

    One of the nicest Best Westerns I have stayed at in a while. Our room was ultra clean and well appointed, with plenty of space and a great layout. Breakfast offered many options, including fresh fruit, waffles, eggs, and oatmeal. Close to Highway 680, but very quiet. Highly recommend.

    « Great place to stay in Danville »

    Used to live in Danville and when I visit I like to stay close to family and friends. The BW is a perfect place, with nice comfortable rooms, clean and quiet, great breakfast,with easy parking,and a very staff.

    « Survey »

    Good location, clean and has good Diner next door. Slippery sheets came undone and TP & Kleenex on the cheap side. Close to the Bay Area, San Jose with easy access to I 680. Quite for being close to the highway. Shell service station next door with a Black Bear diner with great service & very good selection of food.

    « Great Choice!!! »

    I stayed here on a business trip...I was a bit worried about the proximity to the freeway but was pleasantly surprised !!! Not to mention the Black Bear Dinner that is attached to the hotel....GREAT COMBO!!!

    « Best Hotel »

    I always enjoy this Hotel good breakfast, clean, comfortable beds, good T.V. reception. the lobby has computer close to frwys next door to shopping center and entertainment it is dog friendly. staff is helpful

    « Gartland's So Cal. Trip »

    Very Good trip stop on way to so cal. from the northwest. Came off the most efficient route ( south on I 5 to visit family). Only observation is the price at $160 per nite is a bit high for a Best Western, non-suite hotel. However location is convenient, clean, well appointed and facilities for a pet are convenient if you select a lower level unit. You won't be upset if you select this property.

    « Great! »

    Girl's get-away..hotel was perfect for us. Very clean, comfortable beds and pillows, recently updated. Our room faced the freeway but we did NOT hear any freeway noise. Property very well kept and staff were very friendly and accommodating.

    « Excellent Place to Stay!!! »

    This Hotel is the only place that we stay when we are working in the Danville area. We call it our "Home Away From Home." The staff and Room are always excellent. We enjoy their breakfast selections. Everything is clean, and the staff is very friendly.

    « All EV chargers were broken! »

    We chose this hotel only because they offered electric vehicle chargers. I specifically mentioned the ev chargers in my booking. Nobody from the hotel contacted me. When we arrived at 11pm, we found out that all chargers were broken. If you drive an electric vehicle, be sure to AVOID this hotel.

    « Friendly, clean and comfortable »

    Stayed while visiting family. Friendly and helpful staff, and a clean comfortable room at a lower price than hotels in Concord, Walnut Creek. Although my room was on the side of the building facing the highway ramp, it was quiet. Best Western is a great value with the included breakfast, too. I am a vegetarian and was pleasantly surprised to find veggie sausages among the breakfast options. Easy check in, and check out. Enjoyable stay.

    « Super Convenient »

    This facility is located immediately adjacent to the I-680, at the Sycamore Canyon off-ramp. This older hotel is slowly undergoing renovation, the restaurant is being redone as a Black Bear Diner. Maybe they will come up with the idea of joining the 21st century and putting in room safes in each room. The pool is very small, more of a place to get wet than to swim. The rooms are very ordinary but they do have relatively fast WiFi and a large screen HD TV. The front desk staff are jovial and pleasant. There is a gas station immediately adjacent in the event that you need gas. Directly across the street (Camino Ramon) is The Rose Garden, a newer shopping center, with several of Danville's better rated restaurants and a Starbuck's Cafe as well as a higher quality specialty grocery store. On the western side of the I-680/Sycamore Canyon interchange are several older shopping centers with more restaurants, groceries stores, pharmacies and specialty stores. We did not have any problems with freeway noise despite the proximity to I-680, perhaps we are so close that the noise goes up and over the buildings, or the lot is depressed just enough so that it escapes the noise envelope. Wether this is the case for every room on the property, we can not say.

    « Visited my family in Danville »

    I came to visit my Aunt. Her mother-in-law celebrated her 90th birthday. The hotel is 5 minutes away from my aunt house. So it was great since I didn't rent car and my aunt drove me around. The hotel was nice, the room is big and clean. The breakfast was ok. Not many selection but I liked the salsa dip the hotel provided. There are some good restaurants on the opposite of the hotel. My friend came over from SF around 9.30pm, and we wend to the Pizza restaurant just across the street. Overall: Excellent hotel to stay. Definitely will stay here again in the future. Planning to take my family next time.

    « Lovely place to stay.... »

    Stopped here again for the 3rd or 4th time on our way to visit relatives further south. We feel very comfortable and well cared for by the friendly staff. Especially " Rose". This is a Dog friendly establishment ....yet the rooms are as clean as can be! The city of Danville has great choices for Restaurants. We personally love Piatti's, but can't wait to try others on our next trip! Nice people. We are making it our yearly stop or more if we can!

    « Excellent »

    We stayed here because all other choices were full. I am glad we did. Right from the start I was impressed with the service. When I was having problems managing the door to our room, a maid who was making ups room nearby came to help. We were late to breakfast one morning and the clean up person graciously let us get breakfast and left all the breakfast buffet for us. And the breakfast selection is good. The rooms are clean and recently updated and decorated attractively.

    « Unexpected Pleasure »

    We booked our stay at Best Western for the great rate when visiting our daughter at Saint Mary's College. The hotel was easy access to the 680 freeway, Saint Mary's College and Walnut Creek. Also the restaurants across the street were wonderful.

    « Great Place »

    was only there one night for a quick trip, hotel under remodel construction but did not interfere with our stay. All staff were friendly and courteous. Highly recommend it for value and convenience of location.

    « Good Experience at Best Western, Danville »

    My friends and I found the location at the Best Western, Danville very convenient to easy access on/off freeway and restaurants across the street. Staff very friendly and accommodating.I would definitely stay there again when in the area.

    « Not A Bad Place »

    This Best Western will garner better reviews when their remodeling is completed. The room is very comfortable, and the hotel employees are very pleasant. I could not give it a better rating only because of the remodeling going on. But not a bad place for the price.
