Really a nice, small motel. Prices were very fair. Room was cute and clean. Owners take a lot of pride in this place. Big, comfortable bed, with a smaller "daybed" in the room for a child or third person. I went to Baechtel Inn first but they were twice as expensive for a basic motel room. I was only spending...

My friends and I stayed one night (two rooms) and found the rooms to be clean, quiet, and comfortable. All rooms have AC (not a given in many places we stayed in Northern CA). The hotel is located on a busy main street but the rooms are set back from the street. We did not hear any road noise and... More

Very quaint motel! Comfortable bedding. HD t.v.- a plus for my husband. Staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. Room was clean. Definitely would stay here again! Each room was given a name similar to the Old West i.e. Livery, Sherriff, Bakery, Blacksmith, etc.. We stayed in the "Jail" lol!!

Cool little Inn is easy to find. Right off hwy101. Didn't spend more than a few hours there but the staff was very nice and made our short stay pleasant. I called the front desk asking if it would be ok to arrive super late into the night and with no hesitation they set our keys to both our rooms... More

Cute place to stay with themed rooms. Very clean, but we had a noisy night. This hotel is only feet from busy Hwy 101 and our room though toward the back was directly on an alley all guests must use to find parking. I was unable to get on the wifi for some reason. A continental breakfast was offered but... More

The Old West Inn in Willits looks like the downtown of an old West movie set. The office is in the front with the rooms forming a courtyard in the back. All the rooms have a theme as if they were a building in a Western town. Check in was easy and the receptionist was friendly and helpful. There are... More

Smaller hotel, outside access, very quite. Good place to stop for the night if traveling the HWY 101. Cost was far, because the farther north you travel, the rates seemed to go up. Fresh paint, and very clean. Beds were good, but could have used some better pillows. Hotel is on 101, average drive way, but would not recommend a... More

For something different, the Old West Inn offers the façade of an old Western town with the rooms having very Western names. Rooms were clean and comfortable and are "individual", i.e. your door opens directly to the outside not a hallway. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Probably the only (minor) complaint is the lack of options for breakfast but it... More

It was a real “old” inn and I expected a whimsy old west theme but there wasn’t much there. The oldness of the inn also made the building very noisy and although the groups that stayed on the 2nd floor were well mannered we heard their walking and luggage dragging noises. A/C worked fine and cooled the room quickly. Room... More

Willits does not have a lot of options for budget travel. While traveling to redwood national, we stayed at the old west inn. It's very outdated with just a vanity sink in the room and terrible pillows, old but clean bedding. Oddly, they have replaced all the mattresses and they were outstanding. The A/C was a window unit like you... More
