I stayed here with my boyfriend while visiting some old friends in Chico. I'm glad I booked this place with a promo code on top of the already reduced winter prices, because it is definitely not worth more than 55 a night. The walls are thin, and I could hear people moving around and talking all night, even through my... More

I get that this place is cheap, but it should cost less than $85/night. The only good thing about this place is its location. Everything else is disgusting! 1. the room smelled like someone was smoking in the room even though it's a non smoking room. 2. there are cigarette burn spots on both blankets. 3. the carpet is stained...

Outdoors this hotel looks fine. Its the rooms -- in a word, shoddy. Broken window, missing light bulbs, terrible lighting. Felt dirty. Only stayed here because it was the only place left in town. I would probably go anywhere else but come back here. Owners really need to get this under control but perhaps they can't afford it. Don't understand... More

This hotel must have changed owners because even though the hotel is sketchy (what do you expect for $50-$75 a night) the management and employees were always pleasant and helpful, which made up for the old musty rooms. This experience was terrible. I had a bunch of cash on me because of a purchase I did not make and wanted... More

The room was way over priced, towels and sheets had lots of stains on them, the bed creaked, and you can here the people moving and talking upstairs. I was not impressed by this place. I would however take it over sleeping in my car.

When I began my last two years @ Chico State, during the first month in my fall semester I must have stayed at 5 different motels/hotels (the immediate Chico area only) in trying to figure out which had the best value, cleanliness, and overall customer service. Around week 3, I stumbled upon ABVI through my, now traditional, weekend search for... More

I started at the hotel over the weekend and was very happy. The room was nice and clean. The guy in the office helped me find nice places to eat. I would recommend this hotel to anything coming into town for a visit. Everything is in walking distance. I also felt very safe at the hotel with someone on duty... More

Honestly, I was a little hesitant about this hotel just because the reviews made it sound horrible. However, most reviews regarding Chico hotels/motels were pretty bad too. I decided to take a risk on this one since it was closer to the downtown area. Everything went well and I had no problems during my four-day stay. The room and bathroom... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your honest review. We do agree with some of your points that both compliment and criticize. Our rooms are clean and our staff is courteous. The price is affordable and the value is great. We have replaced any curtains that aged and didn't function properly. As far as the T.V.'s go, they are a work... More

I am torn between 2 and 3 stars for this room. Upon arrival the man at the check-in was very friendly. Hotels.com booked us in a smoking and he asked us if we wanted non-smoking instead and I said yes. He quickly changed that. So I would give that a 4 star rating. Upon walking by each room, the windows... More

Stayed here for the first time last week. Good location, decent room but the whole motel turned into a college party lasting well past 3 am. Yes, it was a holiday weekend but really....should we all be subject to screaming, loud music and swimming in the pool all hours? Sorry, ABV but you don't get my business again! You didn't... More

Dear Guest, we are very sorry you weren't satisfied with your stay. Labor day weekend was a bit noisy, but it was not party central. There was no loud music playing and no one getting out of hand. The pool sign that we have posted is actually a requirement from the county for all pools, not just ours. We certainly... More
