Room was thru expedia, but can't book a dog room thru them, had to cancel and rebook. Price went up to $180, same price as a king room at The Westin in San Francisco. Unprofessional staff. Room is better than Motel 6, but not as nice as La Quinta which is $79. Concrete stained floor, old unmatched furniture, no microwave.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We have two pet friendly rooms and are the ONLY hotel in Willits that offers pet friendly rooms. Because of our limited number of pet rooms - we do not offer any other sites except our own the ability to book these rooms. When this guest booked a room on... More

Adorable and quaint hotel that is pet friendly. Be sure to ask for pet room during booking. Very small pool. Not in the best town but hotel is set away from busy street behind a McDonalds and Taco Bell. Felt safe enough since it was secluded. Cute night lights strewn throughout trees. Friendly and accommodating staff. Full breakfast with eggs,... More

We stayed at The Baechtel Inn when riding the Skunk Train. It is located off highway 101, behind a McDonalds. The property is attractive and the staff was very responsive to our needs. The room was clean and well-maintained but age is taking its toll. The free breakfast was filling. While this might be one of the best hotels in... More

Unlike other reviewers, I found the front desk clerk to be very nice. She didn't, however, have much power when it came to addressing customer issues. We made our booking through Trip Advisor, which did not specify that in order to request a dog friendly room, we would need to follow up our booking with a phone call. Nor did... More

Overall the rooms were nice, clean and the property was quiet. It is tucked back off the 101 Highway so the traffic is not a factor. The breakfast bar was typical of the offering you would expect, however it would be nice if they offered a premium coffee that one recognizes as a brand such as Starbucks. Overall a nice... More

My husband and I decided to stay in Willits while in the area after riding the Skunk Train. The setting was quiet, clean and pretty. The front desk staff was kind and friendly.

Check in is suppose to be at 3 and did not get in room until after 5. Asked for help with my luggage for an upstairs room, there was no help. When I asked questions everyone blamed someone else.

Five or six years ago we stayed at the Baechtel Creek Inn. We weren't happy with the visit but decided in May to try a night again.

Willits is a hard-working, logging-based community. Relative to the community, I consider the Baechtel Creek Inn to be the best hotel in the area. My husband and I stayed in mid-May on a Sunday evening. Our drive was bumper-to-bumper through the Napa Valley vineyards. The drive from Napa Valley to Willits was a breath of fresh air from the hustle-and-bustle... More

The internet descriptions and pictures allude to someone's fantasy of a breathtaking resort with surrounding natural beauty. In reality this is a two story strip motel located adjacent to highway 101 that is extremely noisy. The rooms are small, furnished with mismatched furnishings of thrift store quality. The in-room fridge makes constant gurgling noises. Tub-shower is a three-piece fiberglass model... More
