This hotel is overpriced for the room, food and problem resolution. We paid for two rooms. My booked by choice hotel rate was not honored at Chechen. Air would not stay on in one room, the phones did not work in either room. Three lights were burned out upon arrival in one room and after three hair dryers the one... More

The facade was attractive and we had high hopes for a pleasant stay. But the room was a disappointment and gave a distinct impression of penny-pinching by the owner. The old-fashioned wall lamps would have been fine if the economy fluorescent bulbs hadn't projected a couple of inches below the shades, putting out a harsh glare. The between-the-beds lamp was...

To start off on a positive note, which is always a good thing, we are happy this guest enjoyed the breakfast and the beds and Kai's service. She is amazing. Behind the scenes there is another staff heating food, dishes, etc. We were disappointed to read that this guest was not pleased. Some of the issues, such as the AC,... More

We spend one night in the Baechtel Creek Inn & Spa. On the positive side, we were amazed by the very friendly receptionists, both at night and in the morning. They were extremly helpful and accomodating, providing us with extra towels for the pool and giving us valuable advise where to eat or shop. The breakfast which had been included,... More

We want to assure you that we do not put families in any inferior rooms - we welcome families and have many staying with us. We are in process of re-carpeting and all but 3 of our rooms... More

#245 needs : New carpet. Ours wasn't fit to walk barefoot on but we were so grateful for a ROOM !! It was their last. You can tell the room was being upgraded since tiny bathroom is tiled and fresh. Shower needs grab bar. Toilet is small, quite low and seat was wobbly ... Suggest new "comfort height elongated toilet".... More

We are sorry that with all the positive things this guest mentioned, such as great beds, pool area, etc, this guest felt that our hotel was worth just two star rating. We are replacing all of our carpets and have just three rooms more to finish, hers being one of them. The carpet is older, but grossly stained is a... More

We weren't planning on staying in Willits; just needed a place for one night in the vicinity. Bachtel Inn came up in a number of searches and looked like a great place at a great price. Was a bit further afield than we'd planned to go, but it looked so much better than the competition. Happily, it is. Exactly as... More

We saw the reviews and don't understand anything less than a 5. This place is amazing, at least it was for us. We have been traveling the last 2 weeks this this is by far the best. At check-in, the gentleman was super nice and accommodating. I had several requests (room location, dinner ideas, reward club, etc.) and he smiled... More

Dear 3 Bagger: Thank you so much for your review and for the highest rating!

We were given this hotel by Trail Finders and it was lovely - good size room, nice staff and a lovely little pool. Extremely clean and a real old charm about it. We really only used it as a stopping off point to see Avenue of the Giants the next day which was fine. We had a meal in Willits... More

Booked via Hotwire. Good rate. It was an interesting looking place. Lobby was nice and they had a wing which had been upgraded. The rooms were the size if a regular Quality inn, that is the only relative thing. The room was upgraded, granite on the vanity, new carpet and bathroom. Clean, comfortable all round.
