From checking in to the state of the room everything was wonderful. Checking in was a breeze, the clerk was very pleasant and offered restaurant ideas since this town didn't have much of a selection. We probably should have taken her up on the suggestion but opted instead to walk next door to Subway for a mediocre sandwich to eat...

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've recently decided to switch all of my road stays to Holiday Inn Express. Other hotel chains are just too inconsistent. This outpost of HIE maintains their consistent high standard of quality. The only negative was checking out. There was only one employee handling both the front desk and the breakfast. Not only was it a minor problem having to...

When the hotel room doors close here they make a real loud noise. Also no ABC, NBC or CBS on TV. The hunters leave here between 4 and 5 o'clock in the morning. Can't sleep here. They fill up their ice chest with the ice machines at 4:30 in the morning. Stayed in many hotels and the room doors here...

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.

Picked this as a place to stop on our way home from vacation. Was very pleased with the choice. Front desk staff was very pleasant upon check in and the following morning. 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...
