I had always seen this place while driving through Willits but it always looked run down. I saw from other reviews that it had changed owners and they were trying to make the place better. They have done a great job. Check-in was painless and the front desk person was friendly. The motel itself is made to look like an... More

Myself and my mother traveled from PA to Ca due to a job promotion. Needless to say it took a few weeks before finding a place so after many other hotels we found the old west inn! Absolutely fantastic experience! Great caring and friendly staff that is courteous, respectful and caring! From a truly unique experience with their old fashioned... More

We stayed here in September while traveling through California. What a delight! It is one of the cutest, cleanest places we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. If you are in the area I highly recommend staying here and the price is very reasonable also. We were so relaxed in the room, that we ordered pizza delivery and... More

Roshan, the General Manager, is doing an excellent job with an older type establishment. Upon arrival you will notice an effort has been accomplished in making this motel appear attractive and eye catching. Roshan also knows how to treat tired customers after a long days drive. When we checked, he was there at the front desk with a smile and... More

Will definitely visit again! The hotel was very unique and fun. We stayed in "Jail" and our kids loved it. Very quiet. Very clean. No complaints at all! Loved it! Close to shopping and dining and perfect location if you want to take the Skunk Train.

We stayed a total of three nights, with a one-night break for a Skunk Train overnight trip to Fort Bragg. Interesting room décor. The lot in the back accommodated our 23-foot van nicely. We did not partake of the continental breakfast, except for a cup of coffee one morning. Breakfast consisted of small pastries, generic cold cereal, 1% milk, and... More

We chose this place on the reviews. We were not disappointed. The room though not large had everything we needed after a long days drive. The front desk people were wonderful. Comfortable, casual and clean. Appreciated the restaurant recommendations.

Several family members and I spent 2 nights in August 2014....we had a total of 3 rooms.....this family owned hotel certainly exceeded all my previous experiences of staying in a 'budget' hotel.. It was impeccably clean for one - and the attention to detail and the eagerness to please the customer was very evident - thank you Roshan for going... More

Well, first let me say if you are looking for accommodations in Willits, California, and you want something budget friendly, this is the place. It is very clean and much nicer than we anticipated. Roshan was very accommodating. We asked for a iron and iron board and we had it in 2 minutes, and when we wanted extra coffee, we... More
