Older motel, but we were pleased that they had a room with three beds for a family with multiple kids. The bathroom could use updating and the beds were old, though comfortable. New owners and they were very friendly and seem to be working to spruce up the place. We would stay here again if we find ourselves in Willow... More

The room I had was not cleaned very well, the Windows filthy, screens torn. The rug worn, dirty. An empty bottle was beside my bed, I guess the maid missed it. The AC control was not in the room, I had to call the office to let them know when to turn it on and off for me. The adjoining... More

Probably the better of the motels in the area- cleaner than others I had stayed in around here. Room was very clean, bed was creaky as other reviewers mentioned. Staff was friendly as well. There was not much in the way of breakfast in town, though.

Stayed in this traditional motel for a few nights in search of Bigfoot and small town California... worried by the negative reviews but this was one of the best places I've stayed in over the last year.

If you have to stay in Willow Creek, then this place is a clean dive to spend the night. The beds creak when you breathe. Our saddlebags were ransacked and a couple of emergency kits were stolen while they were parked overnight in their lot.

My Dad stayed there while he was working on a fire, and woke up with BED BUG BITES all over him. Utterly Disgusting! There isn't much to choose from in this town, so if you can, try to make it to another town.
