Holiday Inn Express Willows
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Willows
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 February 2014

This hotel is a good stop en route from the Bay Area to Ashland, but we've also used it as a base for birding the several wildlife refuges in the Northern Sacramento Valley. Impeccably clean and very well furnished, with a decent breakfast (and Starbucks next door for stronger coffee), it's a surprising treat along this dreary stretch of I-5. The staff was exceptionally warm and accommodating, cookies at the front desk are always appreciated, and there's an exercise room as well. We recommend it highly.

What a great quality hotel. I did not expect such a nice, stylish room. I thought I would still find the old Holiday Inn look, but this hotel is almost on the level of a Marriott. Enjoyed my stay and enjoyed my breakfast with the variety of choices.

Room Tip: Very Clean and all rooms appear to be very nice. Newer hotel built in 2005 located near lower quali...

My husband and I stayed here recently on a road trip and we thought it excellent. The room was very nice, the bed comfortable and everything was clean. After staying at a real dump in Eugene the night before, we were ecstatic with this place!

This is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed at. From the second you walk in they treat you like family. Fast check in and even faster check out with the receipt right under the door in the morning. The rooms are so clean and roomy. Nice flat screens, comfy bed and they have everything you need from toothpaste, to a laundry bag, to a complimentary bottle of water. Free hot breakfast in the morning we had scrambled eggs and yummy bacon with everything to go with pancakes, yogurt and yummy chocolate muffins and cinnamon rolls. We will always stop here from now on. Thanks Holiday Inn in Willows!

I stayed in Dec, my second time in two months. Overall the hotel is clean and roomy, and the mattress is not a problem.

I bypassed the breakfast because it was crazy carb heavy. I'm not on a diet per se, but brick-like bagels, chilly cinamon buns, unappealing bacon and more, made me leave the 'Free' breakfast behind.

I'm of the mind that if you offer a service, like a free breakfast, then it should be good. A free breakfast can be good without any extra $$$. For example, why can't they get bagels correct? They probably use some contract baker, but the baker will only deliver based on the specifications, and, in this case, the specifications or standards must be low.

I'm a member of the rewards program, and this time there was no gift on check-in.

On my next trip to the Willows area, I will look harder for a nice place to stay

We make fairly regular trips from southern California to Oregon. We have made Willows our interim stop going and returning. We had been staying in another hotel in the area. When they didn't have room for us we went to the Holiday Inn Express. We now make that our hotel of choice. It is easy to make reservations by phone. The staff is cheerful and helpful. We have two small dogs and the hotel accommodates us nicely. The rooms are very nice and well kept. The breakfast meal is excellent. There is Starbucks and Subway right next door. That makes stops relaxing. We recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be work nicely. The hotel is far enough from the highway that noise is not a fact...
