We stopped here after a long drive from Washington on our way to Southern California. It was a great choice! Very comfortable beds, tasty breakfast, very clean pool and bathroom. Jamie was terrific at the front desk and as the breakfast hostess.

We stopped in here on July 29, on our way back to Arizona from touring the Redwoods. What a terrific place! Very comfortable beds, great pillows and plenty of them, large rooms, all the amenities, lots of parking, easy access to I-5, a number of restaurants close by, and close to a Wal-Mart. What's not to like? The free breakfast... More

It is close to the freeway. We got a 2 Queen suite (has a pull out sofa couch). Perfect for a family since it has 2 TV's, microwave and a fridge. Great location while traveling to Oregon. Good breakfast. Subway and Starbucks are right next door. Walmart is close by. Skip Wong's. It is the best Chinese food in town,... More

We spent one night at the HIE on our way to Oregon. The young lady at reception was exceptionally warm and accommodating; we felt at home. Complimentary water and biscuits. Clean room with comfortable bed and probably the best shower we ever enjoyed in a hotel. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Fast check in and even faster check out. Unfortunately, we... More

Our stay in Willows at the HIE this weekend was wonderful !The front desk diva Ms. Munoz was very sweet and accommodating by allowing us to check in over 3 hours early. The room was spotless. The bed was yummy with perfect pillows. The pool was not heated (ie-FREEEEZING!) so trying to swim at 7pm didn't happen ! The hot... More

This hotel is a great place to stop and sleep well before getting back on the road. It is reasonably priced, beautifully decorated, clean, great service, good location. The free breakfast is seriously lacking in quality. Just walk down the street and go to the Brown Bear Diner. This may become a routine stop on our way down hwy 5.

The guest service at this hotel was outstanding!! They let us check out at 130 so we could get a quick swim in before we left. Who does that?? No one! The room we got was a jr suite and for the price I feel I got a steal. I wasn't able to wake up in time for breakfast but... More

This hotel is a good stop en route from the Bay Area to Ashland, but we've also used it as a base for birding the several wildlife refuges in the Northern Sacramento Valley. Impeccably clean and very well furnished, with a decent breakfast (and Starbucks next door for stronger coffee), it's a surprising treat along this dreary stretch of I-5.... More
