The Goodman house is a beautifully kept house from 1906. All the rooms are tastefully decorated and have their own bathrooms. The hosts are very friendly, and the breakfasts were great. If they have availability, this is a much better option than the bigger places in Chico.

I hate hotels. I never trust the cleanliness. My husband is always careful however, I am usually disappointed and then have to go through this entire activity of sanitizing my room with Clorox wipes. This was not the case at The Goodman House! Our room was immaculate with high end bedding on a properly made bed. Our bathroom was spotless.... More

Goodman House is a 1906 Victorian turned into a B&B. The whole house was beautifully restored with wonderful woodwork and antique lighting. Our room upstairs was very pretty. The bathroom was clean, and had a claw foot tub with updated hand held shower head. The soap was of nice quality. The bed was very comfortable with cotton sheets, and plenty... More

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

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.
