Love this charming Inn

3.8 on September 02, 2014

My boyfriend and I always look forward to staying here when we want a quick romantic getaway from the city. I love making coffee in the morning and sitting on the rocking chair on the porch to start off my day. A lot of outdoor activities to do in close proximity and cute independent shops and restaurants in walking distance to grab dinner or an ice cream cone.

The room was very nicely decorated. It had a great atmosphere. I was dissapointed with the service on one occassion. The room we were staying in did not get cleaned one day. We had to go ask for towels and toilet paper as we ran out!

Comfortable place with great people!

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Willows. The room was even nicer then the pictures showed. Everyone working there was wonderful! I loved having the breakfast brought to the room. The only downside was they didn't come back for the breakfast dishes or bring new towels and make the bed. They took the dishes the next morning when they brought the breakfast. The first morning we really enjoyed breakfast. The next day it seemed to be pretty much the same thing and we were a little disappointed.


Great Getaway for the Money

The rooms were awesome we stayed in a jacuzzi suite and would come back again when we need to relax. Loved the rocking chairs on the porch and the small town atmosphere. Really quiet did not hear any other people just what we needed to get away from work and the stresses of your regular day to day life. Plenty of towels and the kitchen was fully stocked with all the utensils needed.


Great Amenities for the price in the off season

We enjoyed a one night get away at the Willows. Service was frienldy upon arival. We weren't thrilled to see that all the rooms have outside entrances, but we did not have a problem. We stayed in the suit that was complete with a full kitchen and eating area, couch, fireplace, and whirlpool tub for two! It was a great room to relax and talk. We did find however, the rooms needing some basic maintainance. Walls and ceiling needed to be spackled and painted. Some walls seemed dirty. The bathroom light seemed to have some issues with flickering as well. Overall it was a nice stay for for the price.

Post Christmas Escape

Stayed 2 nights after Xmas to get away and relax. Went hiking at Starve Rock saw the Eagles, ate dinner at Lodge and hiked. Perfect weather, hit the Jacuzzi after hiking. Hotel is in great location, room was clean and nice owners very friendly. ate dinner at Skogs just down the street after doing a extended wine Tasting at August Hill Winery on the way. We plan on going back every year. Great place to stay in Utica.


Wonderful experience at the Willows

4.8 on October 25, 2010

We totally enjoyed our stay at the Willows. We felt like we had an apartment with separate kitchen, living room, dining room, and bedroom with a fireplace. The motif was lovely as well. The staff greeted me by name when we arrived. They were very accomodating! Thanks for a wonderful stay. We didn't see a dining area so that part of the survey in not applicable!


Glad we go there

My husband and I started going to Willows last year and anytime we need a couple days just to spend a little time together away from the stress of our jobs we take a day or two and relax at the Willows. We enjoy the quiet, laid back accomandations, from making a nice breakfast in the room to sitting on the in the rocking chairs outside our door on the large porch we love this place. All the people both at Willows and in town are friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice, comfortable and quiet. Only item of concern is that some of the rooms might need a little more up keep. Time to fix a few things in the rooms and to sweep the upper porch would have been nice. Nothing major or any reason I wouldn't go back, but would like to see this place around for a long time as it's a perfect get away.
