The owners were very polite, friendly and accommodating, when my family and I stayed for two nights. I really appreciated the manager lending us his personal phone charger during our stay, since ours was lost during travel, fixing the toilet within minutes of notifying them it had a problem, as well as making sure we had enough towels, soap, and...

This hotel is a great value for my dollars. I've stayed several times while traveling for business. It's not fancy, but for the ridiculously low rate you get a really clean hotel, cute old west theme, comfortable beds, breakfast, all the little things like frig and microwave and bath amenities, and your rooms look out on a grassy western courtyard...

We drove into Willits in late January without having researched any motels. The first place we looked at was small and pretty run down, but then we found the Old West Inn. It was $14 more than the first place, but we were glad to pay it. The manager was super kind and helpful and was able to help us... More

Thanks for writing such a nice review for us! we really appreciate it.

We stopped in at 3:20 am. Just as I was about to head back to the car, someone came to the window. They were very polite, as I probably woke them up, and offered me the AAA rate I qualified for. We only were passing through until 9 am, then heading back on the road but the inside of our... More

Had hoped to pass through Willits on my way home from Pismo Beach, but exhaustion told me I needed to rest. Got my phone out to seek a reasonably priced hotel for a Monday night stay and The Old West Inn came up. It was just down the street from where I was fueling at Safeway, which has the cheapest...

Thanks for writing such a nice review for us! We really appreciate it. There are plenty of people who find the outside of the hotel a bit out of the normal.

My wife and I stopped here for one night on our recent trip from NAPA to the Redwoods. We enjoy staying at places that are a little out of the ordinary. The price was definitely right. Each room is cleverly decorated in a different old west theme. The rooms and the facility are neat and clean. The inn is located... More

Considering how busy the main road through Willits is, the hotel was very quiet. The room was spacious - a little old fashioned, but not identikit motel room like a lot of places. Everything was very clean. I found the mattress wasn't firm enough to be really comfy and the metal four poster frame was rickety (Hotel Room). The manager... More

This isn't the Hilton but for a small town it's great. The proprietor and family are very friendly. It's clean, the beds are very comfy and it's in a good location. I would stay here again any time. It's an awesome value!
