Residence Inn Chico
Ranked #6 of 17 Hotels in Chico
Reviewed January 20, 2014

This is a very comfortable, clean and quiet property. I stayed here during a week when it was full with firefighters (battling the nearby wild fires), and yet I never heard a peep all night! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I was particularly fond of the older gentleman who works the breakfast and evening appetizers. He was so sweet and kind. The rooms were large, and the bed was comfortable. My only complaint was poor pillows. I asked for firmer pillows, but there were none. I often find this is a problem at Residence Inns, so I wasn't surprised. Still, it's nice place to stay!

This is probably the best place to stay in Chico.

The parking lot is well lit and close to the rooms. Request a room away from the highway and during the hot months away from the pool. The pool gets a lot of activity all day/night long during the hot weather.

The evening meals are decent and a money savings, though not served on Saturday or Sunday nights. Monday dinners are a light fare - finger foods, soup or chili. Included with dinner for adults is your choice of (2) glasses of beer or wine. Breakfasts are served every day and always have something for everyone - scrambled eggs, waffles, toast, muffins, bagels, cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit, yogurts, coffee, milk, tea & hot cocoa.

We had a 2 bedroom suite. The bedrooms were on opposite sides of the common living room. each had it's own attached full bath. This was perfect for 2 couples, those traveling with friends or with kids or teens.

Of course every night there are hot fresh baked cookies at the front desk (while they last).

Loud neighboring guests and on the floor above can be disruptive. To prevent "elephants on the roof" from disturbing you - request a room on the third floor.

The doorbell on out suite was the most ear piercing shrill, attached to strobes. No soft "ding-dong". Kids ringing doorbells down the hallway caused some terrifying moments.

Room Tip: THIRD FLOOR and away from the freeway. Do not get a room facing the pool during hot weather.

I stayed one night on my way back to Reno on a road trip. The front deck was nice at check in. After checking in we started getting the sofa bed ready for use. After pulling out the bed there was a large brown spot on the mattress. Looking for the bedding we found an empty bag were the bedding should be on the floor in the closet. After getting the bedding from the front desk we found the sheets had warn holes in them. In the morning the shower was dirty with long hairs on the shower curtain. The housekeeping department needs to pay more attention to details to make this place better.

A typical Residence Inn. It's alongside a highway so request a room facing the quiet side. It's also a wood frame building so children running in the halls can be a problem; request 3rd floor to avoid this. Heating system (and I suspect A/C) is very noisy and we had to turn it off to get to sleep. But overall, it's clean and convenient and probably one of the best places to stay in Chico.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the highway. Request 3rd floor to avoid floor noise.

We stayed here for 2 nights while doing a Chico State tour for our daughter. We were greeted by two friendly ladies upon checking in. Asked if we had any preferences for room location. We did and they were able to accommodate us. Our room was clean and decent size for the 3 of us. Breakfast options were beyond my expectations in comparison of other hotels. Good coffee, oatmeal, waffles, fruit and yogurt options. Very friendly people who work here and we would definitely stay here again!

I can't get over how nice my stay was. This is a very clean, attractive property that is visible from the freeway (easy to find). The breakfast was the best complimentary fare I've had in any hotel (including Embassy Suites) - good variety, but what really impressed me was the quality and presentation - granted, it wasn't very busy when I was there but I was still impressed that the serving area was kept immaculate. The room was spacious and functional - it had both a table and a desk - very helpful for business travellers. No problems with WiFi speed, even uploading/downloading files. There was real silverware and ceramic dishes in the cupboards and they even included a snack (popcorn) along with the standard in-room coffee and tea. Bed was comfortable, adjustable showerhead was great... although I didn't have an extended stay this time, I wouldn't hesitate to book one here in the future. Highly recommended.

Stayed in Chico for one night while visiting our daughter. The location is easily accessible off the 99 Hwy, the hotel is quiet and secure and the room was very clean. The room we stayed in was on the bottom floor, king bed and had a nice kitchen area. The bed was very comfortable and there were several choices of pillows. Very nice accommodations if you have to stay one night but especially several nights. We will stay there again when we come to Chico.
