We got in late 10 pm and left early 6 am. Beds were comfortable, breakfast was available at 6 with scrambled eggs, sausage bacon, biscuits and gravy, along with cereals, yogurt, fruit and bagels and such.

Stayed one night on business in June 2016. The staff were pleasant, I think they were in training because there was a learning curve going on during the check in process, but they were apologetic and attentive. The room was clean and the airconditioning worked well. I was grateful because it was really hot and humid outside. There was a... More

Was driving a U-Haul north and stopped late at night from So Cal to WA. Desk service was prompt. Room clean and comfortable. Was worried about parking the U-Haul with all my possessions, desk clerk said "CHP station across the street, you should be okay". Breakfast was fine. AARP rate helped even more.

The front desk staff was pleasant. Lots of trailer parking off the street. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was ready earlier than posted, which was great for our early departure! There are food options within walking distance.

Desk staff was prompt and ready to help for our late night check in. Eagerly offered assistance and did so with a GREAT ATTITUDE. Room was fine, though nothing out of the ordinary: clean, quiet, easily accessed. Breakfast options were typical express hotel faire, but clean and ready early as advertised. BEST PART: My son left expensive ear buds in... More

Not much of a town - and NO Nightlife - but a great place to rest a weary head. Staff was friendly - check in was easy - AARP rate is the cheapest. Room was clean and everything worked great - except the toilet ran if you left the handle in the wrong position. Free breakfast at 6 am which... More

My wife, small dog and I stopped here as an overnight while at Thunderhill Raceway. The property is about the newest and nicest in town. The staff is friendly and accommodating. One word of advice: ask for your room to be on the top (3rd) floor. The building seems to echo noise down. We stayed on the second floor and... More

I just stayed 4 nights here while on business travel. Willows itself is a completely forgettable town but if you find yourself needing to stop here for the night, this is your best lodging option. The hotel and room were clean and comfortable and they had a great TV channel selection. Wifi was slow even for basic stuff and the... More

We decided to break up our drive after about 8 hours in and I saw this hotel online. The room was clean and comfortable and we had no problems at all. We had two small dogs with us. We will definitely visit again on our next drive to Oregon. Starbucks next door was a bonus.
