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

Reason for visit: Chico Wildflower Century. Reason we picked this hotel: forgot to book well in advance and it was all that was left. And wish I had a do over. Looks nice enough from the outside but...and I'll be as positive as I can be... Let's start with a smoking room. Yes smoking allowed but the room was still... More

My landlord told me that I had to spend two nights in a motel because my idiot roommate said she smelled "propane" even though our stove is natural gas. Either way, he wanted to be safer than sorry so he set up an inspection from PG&E. He put us in the Vagabond, and when I went to check in the... 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

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

The staff was friendly, the check-in was prompt, and the room had everything I needed. Also convenient was the location: it's nearby downtown where all the restaurants are, banks, the post office - all within walking distance.

Somehow I got booked in to a smoking room even though I've never smoked and always ask for non-smoking rooms, but I ended up with a smoking room. When I asked for a non-smoking room the person behind the counter said she couldn't do it. She spent several minutes on the computer and gave up. OK, it was late, I... More

Dear Travelor, We are very sorry to hear about your experience. We encourage everyone booking, especially from third party sites like expedia, orbitz etc.. to always make sure that you are booking a non-smoking room. A lot of times these sites only guarantee you a room, but they won't guarantee a non-smoking room. If we have a non-smoking room available,... More

Upon checking in we were greeted by a young man who immediately made us feel welcome and expected. As we were checking in we were told about the continental breakfast offered in the morning.

This place used to be a Days Inn, and unlike other ABVI properties that I've stayed at, hasn't seen much improvement since its takeover. Location is decent, being very close to downtown Chico. It's also VERY noisy because you're at the intersection of two major streets and close to frat and sorority houses; not much you can do about that... More
