The lobby was nice and the desk clerk was very efficient and helpful. The room was clean.The shower was really nice, it was new and all tile. It was large enough that there was no door or curtain. The shower head came from the ceiling and was big. The carpet was new and clean. The pillows were old and flat..... More

This is one of the few accommodations in Willets that is a bit removed from the main street. Even though the rooms face toward the street/highway, they are very quiet. The rooms (our party had 2 rooms) were comfortable and modernized. The breakfast was the best free breakfast I have ever seen included; they even had a make-your-own-waffle station -... More

Thank you for the lovely review. We are always appreciative when our guests notice that we are the only hotel in Willits that isn't directly on the main road (Hwy 101) and just the one turn makes a huge difference in the noise level. So glad you enjoyed our breakfast as well! More

This property is definitely not worth the $184 (with pet fee) I paid for one night. The key card lock did not work. I stayed in the same room in March and had the same problem.. I was assured it would be fixed. The maid let me in but every time I went out with my dog, I put the... More

We are sorry to hear you that you had continual problems with your key card lock. We have checked the batteries and the lock several times and have had no other compliants.

Very nice motel, very clean, real friendly office people. The breakfast is very good and plenty to eat. Close to places to visit, we went to Glass Beach in Fort Bragg. Also to Mendocino and walked around. The second day rode the Skunk Train with a BBQ at the Northspur.

Room was thru expedia, but can't book a dog room thru them, had to cancel and rebook. Price went up to $180, same price as a king room at The Westin in San Francisco. Unprofessional staff. Room is better than Motel 6, but not as nice as La Quinta which is $79. Concrete stained floor, old unmatched furniture, no microwave.... More

Adorable and quaint hotel that is pet friendly. Be sure to ask for pet room during booking. Very small pool. Not in the best town but hotel is set away from busy street behind a McDonalds and Taco Bell. Felt safe enough since it was secluded. Cute night lights strewn throughout trees. Friendly and accommodating staff. Full breakfast with eggs,... More

We stayed at The Baechtel Inn when riding the Skunk Train. It is located off highway 101, behind a McDonalds. The property is attractive and the staff was very responsive to our needs.

Unlike other reviewers, I found the front desk clerk to be very nice. She didn't, however, have much power when it came to addressing customer issues.

Overall the rooms were nice, clean and the property was quiet. It is tucked back off the 101 Highway so the traffic is not a factor.
