Don't pass by based on exterior. Clean, spacious rooms, very comfortable bed, great tv channel selections. Staff was friendly and helpful with info about local attractions. Will definitely stay here next time through. Good nights sleep on a budget.

Not only is the place immaculate and the owners super helpful, but I was totally blown away by the wifi. A 2 gig movie download took 5 minutes at best, maybe even less. Needless to say I caught up on a lot of movie watching during my 2-day stay. And when I used it for business it was as if... More

The staff was very friendly and the room was comfortable. It was great to have a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The Old West Inn is a pleasant place to stay if you're just passing through and need a night to recuperate or for travelling throughout the area and simply need a spot to stash your things and sleep.

We had a very quiet nite in our comfortable spotless spacious room. The deco is a bit eccentric but the people very nice. We will stay here again next time through Willits. The breakfast was very simple. Coffee,sweet rolls orange juice two kinds of cereal and milk.o55

The western theme in our room was not that evident, it was just kind of garish. Overall feeling of grunginess... Hairs (of various types) behind the door in the bathroom, the carpet didn't look vacuumed. The breakfast was very limited with only 2 sugary cereal choices (at least one without major sugar would be good) and some old looking Danishes.... More

Cute, simple Motel. Very nice family run establishment. Clean, quiet! Very comfortable and convenient to the Skunk train depot. Nice sized refrigerator and small microwave. Good water pressure and no lack of hot water. Recently updated all windows and added beautiful white shutters.

If all you needs a bed and a shower, that's what you get.Nothing extra, even the soap measures about 1' x 2". Desk clerk not very helpful. Could have been a lot nicer and more understanding. I'll go elsewhere next time.

Basic older hotel which is clean and well maintained. Updated with roomy fridges, microwaves and big flat screen TV's with good channel choices. Has an old west theme, but no real frills. Older bathrooms but clean and functional. Not much of a breakfast, but good choice for the price. Would stay at again.

A neat old hotel which is clean, spacious and a good value. Don't be fooled when you drive by the place as it is a not as small as it looks. The hotel is dated but it is kept in good repair and offers a very quiet night for sleeping. The rooms are nice and laid out well but my... More
