“Best Place in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

We recently spent two nights in a lovely upgraded room at Baechtel Inn, and really enjoyed our stay. The room and bed were immaculate, and the bed was very comfortable. We both slept well. My aunt had a massage, and was very happy with that too.

We had business in town, and when I mentioned that we were staying at the Baechtel Inn, the man said that it was "definitely the best place in town." Baechtel Inn is located a block off the main street, so it is quiet. They serve a full breakfast which includes eggs and waffles and fruit. The motel overlooks Baechtel Creek so it has a nice ambiance. There is a pool and hot tub. We found the hotel staff to be very helpful and pleasant. The inn is managed by the owners, so they take pride in their inn, and want their guests to have a good experience.

We stayed in the upgraded wing. If I had brought my dog (the inn is pet friendly), we would have stayed in the other wing as the dogs aren't allowed in the "premium rooms."

I would highly recommend Baechtel Inn, and would stay here again if I'm back in Willits. There are many other motels in Willits, but from what I could see, all of the others are on the main street (which is highway 101). I'm sure that most of them cost less than Baechtel Inn, but I would want to get a room away from the highway. Personally, I would return to Baechtell Inn. It was a very comfortable stay.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We were pleased that you stayed with us and enjoyed your stay and that you took the time to let others know! You were both such delightful guests and we were pleased your Aunt enjoyed her massage - we were amazed at what spunk she had at 90 years old and only hope that we can enjoy traveling and massaging at that age!

We hope to see you again,


Jan

I spent 3 very uncomfortable nights here, before I found out why, plastic covers on the mattress ...... On a queen bed???

3 rd night I ended up sleeping on the floor

The staff were very courteous and sorted it out immediately moving me to a premium room where I did get a decent sleep

Pool seemed OK, generally a pretty classy place, the maid shouting from the balcony at the manager as he got in his car was disappointing

Stayed May 2014, travelled solo

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We noted that you felt the bed was uncomfortable due to plastic mattress pads. We do have protective mattress pads on our beds - they cover the mattress and protect against stains, liquids, etc. Some are made from a material that doesn't allow liquid to soak in - perhaps that is what you are referring to when you say plastic.

We wish you would have let us know - we could easily have removed the cover and provided you with another type that might have been more comfortable to you.

As a guest, we always invite you to let our staff know what we can do to make your stay more pleasant - it is always preferrable to do this during your stay as opposed to afterwards!

The breakfast was very very well done... Location is awesome. We are big people my only complaint was the shower head was very very short. But overall nice place... Next time I would like to try the spa:)

I had never been to see the redwoods and it was part of my bucket list. So glad I did,they were awesome and majestic and just amazing. I found the Bechtel by a billboard sign and it was a great choice for several reasons. First is was in a central location going north or west to see the redwoods. Second it was just one quick turn off the Hwy 101 so easy on and off. Third, staff was amazing with knowledge of off the grid hiking trails and gave very personalized recommendations on what to see, where to eat, etc. Fourth - bed was fantastic - slept like a log!

We made reservations in advance and when we arrived to our "Premium King Room" in the "upscale" building we noticed we had no refrigerator or microwave that was promised to us when we made the reservation. Apparently, they both were on the blink or had been moved to another "premium" room. We asked to be moved but apparently there were no other "premium" rooms available. So the food we had in our freezer chest went bad. When we called the desk, they apologized and they took $10 off the room. BIG DEAL!!! I think when you advertise refrigerator and microwave for the premium rooms, then you should deliver. White rug in the room was stained and the room was cramped. Pillows on the bed were very uncomfortable, and the bed was made funny with the sheets half way down. We could open the window in the room for fresh air, but the shade would not roll up so little air could come in. Traffic from 101 was very audible. Breakfast was more than half gone by 9 am and didnt appeal appetizing. We had a cup of coffee and it was luke warm. Unfortunately we travel down this way on business frequently, but wont be back.

Room Tip: the Premium rooms are less than premium, so wondering what the regular rooms look like ???

After being on road many nights, we were so happy to find at his hotel and get a good nights rest. We loved that it sits off the road, has charm and personality and great people working there. The bed was heavenly after some of the places we stayed and the helpfulness of the staff in their recommendations was much appreciated. Beautiful northern area!

After an awful experience at the Super 8, this place was heaven! Our room was clean and the whole hotel is beautiful! Got pets? Great! A doggy bag with several helpful canine items, including some yummy treats was provided for our dog! The breakfast is delicious and Ashleigh at the front desk is very kind and helpful! I would definitely recommend this place!
