This hotel is a great stop on HWY 5 with good amenities and nice bed!
Room is spacious and has a good flat screen tv.
Has also a small swimming pool and hot tub and everything was very clean.
Breakfast was ok! could have more fruit...
I will be back!

Room Tip: 3 floor is probably the best place to be!

Overview:
Holiday Inn Express in Willows, California was a great place to rest from the highway. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and the hotel features convenient amenities.

Pros:
The hotel rooms were very clean, spacious, and nicely furnished. It was nice to have a little sitting area and a flat screen TV at hand. Suites feature a larger seating area, 2 TVs, and a kitchenette for bigger groups of guests. The beds were comfy, and the pillows were even labeled (firm/soft) for the picky kind of sleeper. The walls were very thick, so we weren't easily disturbed by our neighbors.
The pool and gym were a decent size and very clean. The breakfast there was also very well-made, and there was a lot of variety.
And guess what, right across the street is a Subway!

Cons:
The floors are a bit thin, we could here the people above us walking around. The couch-to-a-bed was very uncomfortable, since the springs were so noticeable. Lastly, since the inn is situated in Willows, there is very little to see or do during your stay.

The last word:
Overall, I really liked the service and design of the hotel. The price was affordable and reasonable, and well worth the room. You can expect great service from the many friendly staff that work there. I would highly recommend this hotel to any traveler looking for a cozy, convenient place to stay!

(If this was a great help to you, give me a helpful vote! <3)

Room Tip: Rooms on the ends of the halls are usually much quieter than the ones closest to the elevator. ;)

Due to my business I do a lot of traveling and stay at a lot of hotels. Amie was working the front desk when I arrived. She made me feel very welcome and was very helpful. This is not always true at other hotels. She did a great job. The hotel was very nice and the room was excellent. Although all of the staff was very helpful and polite, Amie went the extra mile to make sure I had a comfortable stay. Thank you.

We stayed at this hotel on our way to Southern California and it was a great place to spend the night after a long day on the road. We stayed in a room that had a king bed and a pull out sofa bed. It felt roomy and comfortable for two adults and two kids. The pool looked a little dirty, but we didn't swim in it. The breakfast was fantastic. The hostess was charming and the food was really good! There were many choices, including a pancake machine, which my kids loved. We wish we'd stopped here again on our way back north!

Room very comfortable. Large refrigerator--good for keeping goodies cold if you're on a long trip. Wifi seemed slow. Only complaint is that hot breakfast items were not replenished until we were ready to leave the dining area after about 20 minutes. There were plentiful cold selections, yogurt, fruit,cereals and bread and pastry items,etc. Room very clean and well supplied with amenities.
