The Old West Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This place was AMAZING!!! Run by a lovely family that moved to the area around 2007 (yes, that’s how nice they are, we got into great conversations). They are really excited about the hotel and the themed rooms. (Which are great by the way!) Loved the “old west” feel on the outside and the really large and comfortable rooms on the inside. Amenities wise ... no pool, it’s a very basic breakfast, pack your own soap (the one there isn’t that great) but honestly you’re not in Redwood country to spend a few hours by the pool ...

This is the place we love to stay any time we need to stop by during our trip. Convenient location and great service.

Sweet and clean. Amazing owners/staff. We were evacuated during the Redwood Valley fire. They went above and beyond to house firefighters, PGE and evacuees. If they didnt have a room, they called alll over until they found you one!

Staff very helpful and friendly. Everything is spotless. Very peaceful. You feel at peace and welcome the minute you get there. Wonderful place to just relax!

I needes a location to visit the REdwoods and [...] met all my requirements

This was a wonderful one night stay for us, the room was very clean with excellent decor and basic comfort needs.Continental Breakfast and Wii-Fi access made it easy to connect up and plan the next day. Willits is much more affordable for than the fancy vitorian hotels in Fort Bragg and Mendicino, and the drive over to Fort Bragg is easy to do.

More than adequate for the price. Spacious rooms, fridge, full tv channel selection, cute and cozy. The only trouble we experienced was loud music coming from some sort of community event two properties down the road from the motel. Unfortunately, that was just the luck of the draw for us. I imagine it is otherwise very quiet. The breakfast was exceptionally skimpy, but I don't expect much in continental breakfasts these days. The best thing was the room itself. Lots of space and pleasant.

Right in town. Clean and inexpensive. A 2 star experience with no faults. I'd stay here again for a night while traveling through.

We were pleased with the cleanliness of the room, late check in was easiest we have ever had. Our only complaint was that our neighbors in the next room awoke at 4 am and we could hear them talk. The walls are very thin.

Our needs were simple: clean, comfortable, quiet place to sleep for 2 nites. The rooms are on the back side of the hotel... away from Highway 101 noise. Perfect and well-planned. Slept like a baby!

I rated for how well this motel did for a 2-star motel. That's why I gave it a very high rating. I would have given it 5 stars except both the little cake soap bars were brittle and broke. Room was spotless and well laid out. "Western theme" not overly cutesy. Walls between rooms a little thin (as one would expect). I did like the fact that unlike almost all the other motels, this one was laid out perpendicular (i.e. away from) to the Redwood Highway. This helps keep down the freeway noise.

We stayed at this hotel in Willits while spending an entire weekend in Mendocino County. We drove to Fort Bragg and Mendocino from Willits. It takes about an hour, although it is only about 30 miles. That's because of the route through the Redwood forests in the mountains. It is a nice scenic drive. Also, you can ride the famous Skunk train from Willits to Fort Bragg. Staying in Willits is much more affordable compared to Fort Bragg or Mendocino. Lot more food options.

Some improvement in the rooms since I last stayed there, new Air/heater unite, and new shower fixtures. Great shower!
