Feels Like Family

Stephen B

My wife and I have been staying at The Old West Inn for around 5 years now. We have had travel times, sometimes arriving in the middle of the night, only to be greeted with a smile and gracious understanding of our odd hours. Roshan and his family treat us like family, and have always gone the "extra mile" to help us while on the road. Last year, I had to pull a utility trailor, and was pleasently surprised to find Roshan had set aside a special parking area for us, which was very special and allowed us to not worry about where we would stay. HIGHLY recommended.

Road Trip


This hotel is is a hidden gem, family run and you get a very warm welcome indeed. The rooms are clean and spotless. The hotel is set as a old Wild West town each room is either the saloon, doctors, bar etc. Breakfast is not the best in the world and we decided to eat elsewhere.I would happily stay here again yes

Great Room! Excellent Staff!


We stayed at The Old West Inn without any idea what to expect. There were good reviews online, so that is why we chose them. We were very pleased with our stay. The room was clean, spacious and very nice in general. It is a family-owned business and they are very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely stay here again.

Nice Pearl in the small town

The Hotel is very clean. Way better than our expectation especially considering the price they offered. The hotel is decorated into the old west style. It is a fun experience. I cannot complain about anything over there. If we will pass by that area next time, this will be the to-go hotel in the area for sure.

Clean and Comfy


The establishment is well maintained, clean and the beds are comfortable. We stayed on our way up the Oregon coast and looked it so much we stayed in the way back home. Good location. Staff was pleasant and helpful.

Fun western theme rooms....

Fun western theme rooms. Comfortable bed. Good location. Quiet. Large and spacious rooms. The best wi-fi I have ever experienced anywhere. Very nice refrigerator and microwave. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would surely stay here again.

The Cleanest and Nicest hotel in the west

Russell M

Six friends booked three rooms for three nights. The rooms were clean and well maintained. We were very happy and will definitely come back again some day. The fact that some rooms hae a day bed is really nice

Remodeled hotel with a cute theme


This is not by any means a 5 Star hotel. But when traveling up the 101 I would recommend staying here. Spacious rooms, recent remodeled nice courtyard. I really appreciated their website having a things to do list, best restaurants in the area etc. Room was well maintained and cleaned. Parking lot was well lit and felt safe. Front desk staff was very pleasant!

Smiling Faces and Clean Room


I had driven 14 hours and was really tired and hungry when I arrived. The fellow at the front desk ( sorry I don't know his name) greeted me with a friendly smile and said he would be there all night if I needed anything. He gave me restaurant suggestions which turned out to be spot on. The actual motel is adorable with a western theme but to tell you the truth I was so tired I didn't even notice at first. What I did notice ( because it is SO important to me) was how clean the room was. The bed was really comfortable. The owner told me that they are in the process of removing all the carpeting and installing wood floors which I think is a great idea as I really hate carpet. I will definitely be back .

Nice, Clean motel

We really enjoyed our stay at the Old West Inn. I was looking for an affordable place to stay overnight during our trip to Mendocino and I'm glad I found this place. The reviews were right about the cleanliness of this place and renovated interior. We liked the way the exterior resembled the old west town street. Rooms are named after different businesses, f.e. jail, bank, hotel. It looks like a family business and every single employee was SUPER friendly, everyone smiled and greeted us in the morning and we were asked if the room was to our satisfaction when we were leaving. Thank you and keep up with good work!

A+ Clean, Quiet and Well Appointed


All three rooms used by our party were spotlessly clean. All are freshly renovated with fresh paint, quality fittings and furniture. HBO dish TV reception was perfectly clear. The room has microwave, a generous sized mini-fridge, and sufficient wall outlets and lamps. Two generous sized night stands on either side of the King bed. There is a typical small coffee maker. As customary with all motels, bring your own coffee pods and half & half if you drink a lot of coffee. The rooms are absolutely dead quiet. We heard no vehicle noise at all, nor any noise from either adjoining room to ours. Rooms 102-109 are single story, and 110-119 are in the separate two story section of the building. There is no elevator to the 2nd floor. Stairs only. WiFi strength was excellent with no connection problems. The bathroom light is combined with the vent fan, so bring a night light if you don't want to hear the fan all night. Heat and A/C is a wall mounted unit and makes the usual amount of noise when operating.

The owner and family live onsite since purchasing the site in 2007. They are very gracious, responsive and available to their guests.

The parking lot is off-street behind the site. This might be a tight squeeze for a motor home when many cars are present.

We would stay here again, any time. 100% delighted.

A Warm Welcome and clean rooms


I had a friend who stayed here last month and decided it was time for a weekend getaway. The main reason for visiting Willits was to ride the Shunk Train. Willits is a lovely 3 hour drive from San Francisco. The Patel brothers have turned this motel in a fun western theme property with boardwalk and cute names to rooms, ie, saloon, bakery, barber shop (room I stayed), Clean rooms and very comfortable beds. Microwave and refrigerator. Basic breakfast. Free Internet. Great value.

Great Rooms, Quiet Setting, and Reasonable prices

Victor B

I stayed here because the other hotels in town were booked. I often travel to Willits, CA for work and always stayed at a couple of competitors hotels. The Old West Inn has nicer, bigger, and more up to date rooms than two of the large chain hotels I used to stay in and it CHEAPER! The front desk was super friendly and seemed to honestly care about my comfort and how my stay was. I will be staying here from now on! The layout of the rooms provides some noise protection from the main drag out front.

What a Great Fun Night!


We are a bus group and took all 19 rooms. Normally we stay in Hamptons, HIEX and Marriott, but this was a lot more fun. Owner and family made us feel very welcome and run a great little motel that is clean and fun. Many of Our group talked in the courtyard and enjoyed the setting until bed time. Great stay!Great owners!

Excellent Stay -- EV chargers a Bonus!


We had a great overnight stay at The Old West Inn. The room was large, with up to date furnishings, and spotless; the facilities were charming and quiet. An extra bonus was that they have 2 electric vehicle chargers including one for Teslas. This amenity shows the customer service approach of the owner/manager, who was delightful to talk with a super friendly. We definitely will plan future trips to northern California coast to include this spot!

The Old West Inn


A TERRIFIC place to stay! The owner/manager and his family were very friendly. The rooms are decorated as various businesses in an old western down. The rooms were clean and nicely appointed. Despite the fact that there was some traffic on the road in front our room located near the front was quiet. Lastly the morning's continental breakfast was simple but filling. LOVED every minute of our stay. Stop at the Old West Inn, you won't be disappointed!
