It was not a safe neighborhood. There was a homeless man in the lobby when we checked in.

The room was dirty, the lock on the door did not work, the bathroom had no room to set anything and the tile floor was badly cracked. When we spoke with the desk clerk and the manager the attitude was uncaring. I will never stay n this chain hotel again. The very least management could have done was apologize, but that did not happen. Also, our coffee pot was broken and they replaced it with one that wad taped together. Really bad place.

Could not stay here; too grossed out. No A/C-was not told or found any instructions on “kill switch” but that wasn’t the main reason for leaving. I was promptly refunded due to cockroaches in bathroom and bloodstains on the lamp - who knows what else I would have found if I had stayed more that 2 minutes. Oh and cops and paramedics were entering a room when I arrived for some reason. Drove 30 minutes to Oroville for a nice hotel since everything else in town was sold out. Won’t use Travelocity again either!

A basic, decent motel

Pros: There was a fridge in the room.
Cons: Badly fitted fan in bathroom, and a hole in the wall by the shower.

Stay away

Pros: The bed
Cons: See my "experience" did I mention the bed cover had cigarette burns?
Location: Downtown Chico
This place is pretty pathetic for the price I paid. Cons: 1) tissue box fell off the wall in the bathroom. The maid crammed it back in rather than fixing it. 2) the grout in the bathroom looked like it had never, ever been cleaned. 3) the hot/cold handle worked, sort of. 4) the tile in the bathroom was well cracked. 5) the air conditioner thermostat was broken off. 6) and finally, the Fox News channel was scrambled!!! The front desk employee feigned ignorance. CNN was not scrambled but I'm conservative. Pros: 1) the bed was comfortable. Overall, the place needs a major overhaul.

Cheap short walk to downtown Chico (pro)

Pros: Location. No roaches or bed bug bites.
Cons: Everything
Location: Short walk to the best of beautiful downtown Chico.
(con) the rest of it. First of all, I'm not one of those hotel snobs. I've stayed at some pretty skanky places out of necessity. I had a pretty good idea what I was in for this weekend so it wasn't shocking. I stayed here once before roughly 20 years ago when it was probably the 4th worst motel in Chico. It's gone down hill since then. This place is in dire need of refurbishing. Bathroom was disgusting. It seemed pretty clean except for the housekeeper's hair stuck to the shower wall. The mold was caulked over but clearly visible around the tub, grout, and the sink and shower control knobs. The carpet in my "non-smoking" room clearly hasn't been changed since before all rooms were smoking rooms. There were shady people milling around the parking lot every night. So, I guess if you're a smoker and enjoy a room that smells like an ashtray and don't mind feeling dirtier after a shower, this might be the place for you.

No No No No No

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast, service
I will not stay or recommend this hotel. rude staff, management and dirty rooms. breakfast was a joke. there are better options in downtown. Infact I found nice hotel next block on Main street. Goto Quality Inn instead. a little more expensive but atleast you can sleep better.
