Economical, plenty good, nice staff

The management was friendly, helpful, and seems to keep the college town excesses in orderly check. The rooms are old, patch-work, but fine for the price - clean, neat. Great location for walks downtown, campus, park.

Right downtown

Centrally located in Chico, easy walk to downtown stores. Good value for what you get, nice pastries in the morning. Smallest pool I have ever saw but we went to one mile anyway so it didn't matter.

No Frills

Basic but clean facility conveniently located in Downtown Chico. Most of the clientele appeared to be out-of-town twentysomethings who were visiting their college friends. Some of the rooms are undergoing renovation, which is probably a good thing. Noise was not a problem (but I'm a heavy sleeper).

Location

This Hotel was just fine for the money. The staff at check in were not the most comforting. Too many rules to follow and treated the six members in our party like we were college kids. The location was great and the stay was not a total flop. Other than the attitudes, the stay was plenty addiquate for the price.

Plenty of bars and night life within a couple of blocks. CSU is only 4-5 blocks away. Very close to City Square.

Great for a quick stay

Great location. A great place to stay if you are visiting friends and have places to be during the day and night, but want a place to rest that isn't a couch. Bathrooms were very clean but with a very noisy ceiling fan. Would visit again based on price, location, biggest drawback was the stiff-as-a-board bed, but what do you except?

Drunk times in Chico

Went there for Halloween for a weekend to see friends and go to the bars. It is what it is cheap downtown with a lot of young people who are staying there while they want to go out. It was nice and clean really easy to walk to the bars. I enjoyed it but if you don't want drunk people around who are going to be loud stay somewhere else.

Go to the bear or Rileys if you want to go out and party. Rileys power hour from 9-10 on Thursday is the best thing on the planet!
