First off the room sucked and stank. My own fault I forgot my pillow there, when I called to see if it was turned in I was told that if house keeping did not want it for themselves then they would have thrown it away. What a policy.

I stayed at the motel for two nights. The linens were clean. The room was quiet. The tv worked alright. The room smelled of smoke from a previous person. That is not a big deal to me. I turned on the air conditioner. Harry and his son are working at the front desk. They are not overly talkative. They are... More

Adequate parking. Beds were sufficient . Has a fridge,tv, microwave. Street is close but bring ear plugs and you'll... More

"What a dump!" True, the rooms have been this prettied up with new paint and bedding, but that's about it. It still has a well-worn look and feel. Some "non-smoking" rooms (such as mine) still offer that Marlboro man moment. And don't get me started on the bathroom: broken tiles, with a gaps to who-knows-where and a shower so dark... More

This was actually a very clean and nice motel. I was supprised to find the managers very friendly and sociable after reading the last review. I was here years ago, and the first time being back since the new management has begun, it has changed alot! The floors were clean, the bathroom was nice, becides the size restrictions of the...

This is the worst managed hotel in Chico! Doreen at the front desk and Andy..the manager were both unprofessional and rude! The manager dodged phone calls. They refused to give names when I told them we were complaining about the service. They should be fired and this place should be closed by the looks of it. Run down and dilapidated!

There hasn't been much updating in this motel for a long time. The floors are uneven and cracked, the counters are broken and our non smoking room reeked of smoke. The furniture is old and dilapidated.

I wasn't expecting much due to the price but was amazed just how little we got. In the shower there were exposed rusted pipes overhead. The tv was functional but we were only able to get a few channels. We stayed there for 3 nights and never received any maid service. The first day we were told she was late,... More

The non smoking room smelled of smoke. The air conditioner did not work. The rooms are relatively clean but overall dingy in appearance and a bit beat up with roughly patched holes in the walls and a tiny bathroom. I would not recommend this hotel unless you are desperate.
