We stayed recently here and had a wonderful time. Room was large, bed was comfortable, food was excellent, and location was nearly ideal. Parking was no problem, even a nice place for food and drink a short walk away. Just about perfect.

I was recently in Chico, CA, for a scary and long medical treatment. The greatest blessing I had was staying at The Goodman House, an elegant yet cozy bed and breakfast on the tree-lined, scenic Esplanade. But the best thing about Goodman House is the proprietors, Tom and Margo Graham, who not only gave me an amazing rate (due to... More

We always stay at an upscale hotel in Chico but it was booked for a wedding the weekend we were visiting family. We depend on TripAdvisor for reviews and were not disappointed staying at Goodman House. The grounds are really well-maintained, our room was very comfortable and fit our needs. The bed and all linens were terrific and the breakfast... More

We spent a total of three nights at Goodman House B&B - one night in August, when dropping off our son to the University in Chico, and two nights over a recent University BBQ weekend for parents. The B&B is located about a mile from the University, and to the downtown area of Chico, so we couldn't have asked for... More

Tom and Margo made the stay at their Bed and Breakfast superb. The Goodman house is located perfectly for exploring Chico and the rooms could not have been more comfortable and appointed. We have stayed all over the world and their hospitality was the best ever. Thank you Tom and Margo J & P

I was in Chico, CA for the first time last month for a family reunion. Recommended by a family member, I booked 2 nights at the Goodman House Bed and Breakfast. Everything about this experience was positive. I slept on a comfortable bed, ate delicious breakfasts, enjoyed wine and cheese Saturday at 5PM and could visit with the delightful owners.... More

Our very first B&B stay could not have been more perfect. The owners Margo and Tom run a beautiful home. They are both extremely warm and friendly, like two of your favorite family members would feel, with great stories to tell and share about the area. Highlights: -The house is a gorgeous 1906 Victorian that has all the details from... More

The Goodman house was the perfect place to end our mini-moon. The house was a beautiful historic home, set on beautiful grounds. Our room was very comfortable, and outside the room, there was evening Port that was left out for us, and a coffee cart. I think our favorite part of the stay was eating outside on the newly renovated... More

We had plans to spend a week in Chico visiting family and looked for lodging. The price for a room at the Goodman House was comparable to local hotels and we decided to give it a shot.

During a recent trip to the lively college town of Chico Ca., I decided to forgo the usual chain hotels and upon recommendation from a friend, gave the Goodman House Bed and Breakfast a try. The home, a turn of the century craftsman style was warm and inviting with period furnishings and memorabilia form days gone by. The bedroom was... More
