I'd stayed at one other America's Best Value Inn in McAlester, Oklahoma which was quite nice, so we booked this one in Chico. My goodness. Not the same at all. The office was cluttered, the clerk was surly beyond belief and the room was small enough to make me think we were in England. They don't turn the a/c on... More

Pros: this motel is located conveniently to downtown Chico and Chico State. The front desk personnel are very helpful and friendly. Cons: it's quite noisy, and the amenities are below what I would expect for a room of this price. Needs some more updating, or a lower price.

We simply needed a place to stay in Chico while visiting friends. But here we not only had clean and functional rooms but particularly we had the warm welcome and care of the owner and staff. We felt very at home and comfortable. Throughout my winter travels on the West Coast, this is the only inn/motel that I have felt... More

The hotel was clean and accessible. A no frills hotel but provides great comfort. My experience with Josephine was of the greatest customer service experiences i've ever had. I would stay again in a heartbeat if only to experience such great customer service again.

I stay here often on business. Even though it is in the lowest range pricewise, I've never had a problem. Minor issues (need more towels, internet's out, etc.) are addressed quickly. The rooms and furniture are older, but always clean. No bad smells! (If you stay in low price motels, you know what I'm talking about.) Parking right outside your... More

I really enjoyed this place. The staff were very friendly, everyone from the housekeepers to management. The room I stayed in was clean, no bugs are anything like that. The price for the room wasn't bad. The location is great, pretty much all of downtown was within walking distance. I'd stay there again.

Apparently they don't turn on the air until guests check in. It had to be at least 100 degrees in the room. We've been here for 2 hours and the room is still above 85. It's cooler outside. I'm regretting not sleeping in the car.
