Stayed in this traditional motel for a few nights in search of Bigfoot and small town California... worried by the negative reviews but this was one of the best places I've stayed in over the last year. Stayed in a wheelchair accessible room (nine), kept very clean (no bugs!) and with a microwave, refrigerator, free wifi and satellite TV, who... More

If you have to stay in Willow Creek, then this place is a clean dive to spend the night. The beds creak when you breathe. Our saddlebags were ransacked and a couple of emergency kits were stolen while they were parked overnight in their lot.

My Dad stayed there while he was working on a fire, and woke up with BED BUG BITES all over him. Utterly Disgusting! There isn't much to choose from in this town, so if you can, try to make it to another town.

A friendly smile awaits at the Bigfoot Motel in Willow Creek but all is not as it seems. The pool has long since gone, a victim of health and safety, and Bigfoot is not in his cage. You can put your kids in instead. Our room was designed for disabled guests so was roomy for a family of 4. The... More
