Off the beaten track, the location turned out to be an advantage as it was very quiet and only two minutes from the bustle of the freeway interchange. The owner greeted me with a smile, heartfelt welcome and recommendations for places to eat and directions to the birding locales. The room was perfect, clean and comfortable. The shower was great...

I found this to be the perfect traveler's hotel when in need of place to stop for the evening during an eleven hour road trip. Fair pricing - same as online - provided at the front counter upon arrival in the evening. Located in town a short ways up the main street, but welcoming to be away from the noise... More

Very basic but recently remodeled and very clean. Nice looking furniture. Comfortable beds. Just basic -- thin towels, no shampoo, no pictures on the walls. There is a diner across the street and it is fairly quiet. I was just there to sleep before an early appointment and it was just fine for that.

I booked this hotel for a two day meeting in Willows. Most of the other hotels were booked and this place had good reviews so I decided to give it a try. The owners are very hospitable and responsive to their customers needs. The room was very clean and furniture looked relatively new. Looking at the building, you see an... More

The Economy Inn is located in central Willows away from the traffic noise of I-5. The bed are very comfortable and the room has all the necessities you would expect in a motel. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Great value. BTW, if you stay in Willows, be sure to try Nancy's, across from Wal-Mart near the airport, for... More

Let me first start by stating I never considered myself a hotel snob but I do have certain "Standards and qualities" I look for in a hotel.. I've never stayed in a old school budget motel like this before so my review is based off that.. I have stayed in MANY hotels in my life time ranging from super 8's... More

We stayed for two nights. The staff was always helpful, for anything i needed from accepting a parcel to drying my son's driving suit. Staff was attentive and excellent. Room was clean. Water in the shower was hot. Anytime we head to Thunderhill Raceway, we will be staying here. Perfect place to stay if you are passing through or are... More

We stopped in late and the online reviews led me to this place, a mile in from the highway and the other hotels. The owner loves his motel and takes very good care of it - he just wants you to have a good, comfortable experience. The room was very clean, with all amenities - satellite TV, mini fridge, microwave,... More

We looked for a cheap place on our way home. We were getting in fairly late and all we needed was a clean place with a decent bed and WiFi. We used the hotel "coupon books" and found the Economy Inn at a convenient stopping point. It was an old (1940s?) one-story motel. We had a room with a King... More

Spent one night at this location. I was looking for a clean and comfortable stay in Willows and this place was just that. My girlfriend is particular about rooms and the front desk had no qualms about letting us view a room prior to renting. It was very clean and the staff friendly. Will be back.
