I've stayed at the Blue Gum several times for a winter birding adventure at the nearby National Wildlife Refuges. The owner is very accomodating and pleasant, and the setting is idyllic: a resident Mockingbird scolds from a tree near the pool, well-kept rosebushes surround the central grass area, and there's fine birding across the road (Highway 99) along the river and trees. It's well-priced and though it's not the latest in hotel decor, it has all the basics (mini-fridge, microwave, coffee) plus very comfortable mattresses and it's QUIET! Having stayed in Willows once, this is a real plus: it feels remote, like a place I'd have stayed with my folks on a family trip in the 50's, and is blessedly far enough from I-5 to spare you the truckers' noise all night long.
