Went up to Chico for my nephew to visit the college. It happened to be the same weekend as some FFA event. All the hotels to stay in town were booked so I began to check out alternatives. The Goodman house had one room left for the night! The room was small, but the house was built in 1909 if... More

I checked through the various hotels in Chico. Oh, there was a Marriott on the south end of Chico, far from everything at about $129 per night. And there were various old motels in town. Then there was the Goodman House. for the same price as the Marriott, I stayed at a wonderful bed and breakfast for 2 nights and... More

Can't rave about this place, but the only alternatives in town were low end chain hotels. Good location, quiet, clean. old bathroom ( my husband didn't like that) and not much room to spread out. But otherwise no complaints. Not sure if my somewheat mediocre review is of the B&B or Chico.. Chico doesn't seem to have much to speak... More

They go out of their way to make our stay delightful...expresso is placed outside our room in the morning, we can order a simple breakfast like we have at home, they have a beautiful piano, rooms are spacious, and the...

We returned for the third time when we moved our son into CSUChico. After eight hours of traveling we look forward to some pampering. Margo and Tom are totally attuned to our comfort: outstanding beds and linens, meticulously clean rooms, and delectable breakfasts created with our restrictions/preferences in mind. I was even treated to mint tea brewed with mint straight... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Goodman House. The house and garden area are lovely, hosts Margo and Tom and daughter Jessica were wonderfully helpful and the location is fantastic--easy walking distance to downtown restaurants, the Bidwell House and CSUChico. We brought our bikes and rode all over Chico from their home. As a special bonus, they have... More

I highly recommend The Goodman House. Margo's gourmet breakfasts are a real treat as is the afternoon wine tasting where Tom is a most genial host. Lucky and Koko are the friendly and well behaved house dogs. This beautiful Victorian has been lovingly cared for. The bedrooms are comfortable as well as lovely to look at. The antique filled parlor... More

If you are considering a short stay in Chico, my wife and I would have to recommend the Goodman House. Tom & Margo are exceptional hosts, and their home is charming and very restful.
