We made a last minute detour to Chico and fortunately for us, the Goodman House had one room available. We couldn't have picked a better place if we had searched months in advance. Clean, modern bathroom, convenient to town, private parking, wifi, a fantastic breakfast, accommodating hosts, what more can I say!

My wife and I stayed at Goodman House over Memorial Day weekend. We chose Goodman House because of the reviews and we heard that they could accommodate vegetarian and vegan diets (my wife is vegetarian). It was an outstanding choice. Goodman House has two very warm hosts who made us feel welcome and at home immediately and throughout our stay.... More

We had a lovely time with plenty of gathering space to sit around and reminisce! The hosts Tom and Margo treated us very well. Breakfast every morning was delicious, the rooms were nicely decorated and comfortable and they had plenty of books on the history of Chico to browse and chat about! It was a delightful stay and if you... More

we had a lovely time in Chico, great northern California town....lots of old neighborhoods with mature trees, downtown maintains the older atmosphere that is often absent nowadays and everywhere streets and yards were tidy...so it was with the Goodman House, a very well run B&B. Lovely interior, bedroom well done and breakfast very nice. We felt this was a very... More

The Goodman House is quiet, clean and managed beautifully. I highly recommend it as a perfect place for a quiet get-away near downtown Chico. Bring a bicycle or great shoes since downtown, the CSUC campus and beautiful Bidwell Mansion isn't far.

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
