Hotel has a new owner in the past couple months that has a really made a great effort for improvements and into making everybody's stay pleasant. I requested the kitchenette because we were going to be in the mountains for a week. Worked out perfect. The store was right next door and we cooked for the whole family every night... More

Highly recommend!!!! Really nice place and I'm picky!!!! Don't let the town or outside of place deceive you! It's a very friendly, homey place. Very clean and lots of space to move about!!! I'd definitely come back! Thanks for a great night and playing with your cat Sargent major!

We had to wait for the tow company to come in the morning.The town is really small but everyone was really nice. We arrived there at 9pm and Brian took really good care of us. The room was accommodating. Thank you... More

Probably the better of the motels in the area- cleaner than others I had stayed in around here. Room was very clean, bed was creaky as other reviewers mentioned. Staff was friendly as well. There was not much in the way of breakfast in town, though.

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.
