Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Willows twice, on the way up north to Crescent City and on the way back south. The hotel is located in a convenient location just off the freeway, with stores, gas stations and restaurants nearby. Some restaurants are within walking distance. There is a Walmart nearby for shopping needs. The hotel rooms are very...

I was in the small highway town of Willows for a visit to Thunder Hill raceway, and this hotel is perfectly located. It was a clean room, polite staff, good breakfast, and the pool was very welcome after all day in the saddle.

Rooms were modern and clean. This hotel is pet friendly. Breakfast was good and had a good selection to choose from including pancakes, eggs, sausage and cinnamon rolls...

To be fair, other reviews have mentioned positive attributes of this property (parking, AC, beds), but I am extremely disappointed that my suite is merely a room large enough for a couch with second TV. Without the dividing wall, enabling one person to sleep and the second to watch TV, how is this a suite? It's not. Worst of all,...

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...

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.
