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

What a great quality hotel. I did not expect such a nice, stylish room. I thought I would still find the old Holiday Inn look, but this hotel is almost on the level of a Marriott. Enjoyed my stay and enjoyed my breakfast with the variety of choices.

My husband and I stayed here recently on a road trip and we thought it excellent. The room was very nice, the bed comfortable and everything was clean. After staying at a real dump in Eugene the night before, we were ecstatic with this place!

This is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed at. From the second you walk in they treat you like family. Fast check in and even faster check out with the receipt right under the door in the morning. The rooms are so clean and roomy. Nice flat screens, comfy bed and they have everything you need from...

This is a welcome relief after a long day of driving. The rooms are clean, parking lot well lit, and staff is very helpful. Rooms are all about the same, clean and quiet. It is nice to have coffee, and fruit,

I stayed in Dec, my second time in two months. Overall the hotel is clean and roomy, and the mattress is not a problem. I bypassed the breakfast because it was crazy carb heavy. I'm not on a diet per se, but brick-like bagels, chilly cinamon buns, unappealing bacon and more, made me leave the 'Free' breakfast behind. I'm of... More

We make fairly regular trips from southern California to Oregon. We have made Willows our interim stop going and returning. We had been staying in another hotel in the area.

Our say was for leisure. The room was perfect in every respect. The morning breakfast was very nice. The staff was very helpful. The bed was great. I cannot thunk of any negative comments. I asked for and got dinner recommendations that were excellent. We will stay there again on our travel through the area.

The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. The hotel is very clean and well managed. It even has a little pool, in a location to catch the sunshine. We had a spacious room with a super comfortable bed and pillows.It was very quite and we slept very well. A buffet breakfast was a great bonus too,
