A very welcoming experience at Reception with prompt check in service. Lovely room, spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. Friendly, talkative staff. The hotel was nearly full but there were no noise issues; the rooms must be well insulated! A good continental style breakfast offering.

Room Tip: Third floor for something of a view (only three)

The hotel was fine. Staff was super nice & helpful. If your looking to stay near Chico State, the hotel is not downtown. The school is a few freeway exits away. We were just in and out quickly for a busy school event we got to the hotel late in the evening and had to park out on the street because there lot was full. Overall it was an mediocre stay- No refrig. :( I'm not sure if I'd stay there again.

Let's start with the positive - this Courtyard location has a nice little cafe that is open for breakfast and dinner, and the food is surprisingly good. The cafe has a wine and beer bar, as well, and while selections were strictly pedestrian and overpriced, it was nice to have a glass of wine with the meal. We had both breakfast and dinner at the cafe, and we were happy with both meals. The lobby was very nice, lots of space to sit with friends or co-workers, and a nice bar area with power outlets for laptops and other devices. The location is convenient, right off CA 99 south of Chico. Staff were efficient if somewhat detached, except for the cafe staff, who were very friendly and efficient. Now for the rest. The rooms were just okay, clean and serviceable but nothing special. The bathroom had a strong smell of mold, and since I could not see any mold on the tub or tile, I guessed it might be coming from the shower curtain. I really disliked the window air conditioning unit, the thermostat controlling it was not accurate, and the room always was either too hot or too cold. The bed was extremely hard and the pillows seemed a bit worn. Towels were oddly thin and small for a Courtyard. As with all other Courtyard locations, this room did not have a small refrigerator, a big pet peeve of mine. Is it too much to ask to have a place to keep beverages cold? Still, if you like Courtyard hotels and want a place with a restaurant, this is a good location.

Room Tip: Flooring was not very soundproof, so try to get on the third (top) floor.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review for our hotel. We appreciate feedback such as yours as we are always looking for ways to improve our services and amenities. I am so pleased that you enjoyed our Bistro. That is one of my favorite additions from our recent lobby renovation. I wanted to let you know that we are in the process of placing refrigerators in our guest rooms and have about 1/3 of the hotel completed. If you request one the next time you stay, we will do our very best to see that you get a refrigerator in your room. I have also looked into the other issues you had in your room so that any deficiencies can be fixed. Thank you for staying with us, we hope to see you again soon.

Centrally located for area attractions. Less than one mile from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. Staff were polite and courteous. Will stay here again for my next visit. No need to look else where.

We stayed here for one night while visiting family in the area. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. It looks as if the lobby and restaurant have been recently renovated. There is an indoor pool and spa that I wish we could have spent some time at. The room was decent. It wasn't as nice as other Courtyards I have stayed at, but wasn't bad either. Soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion are all provided. The hall and room did look a bit worn and older, but the bed was comfortable and there was a nice flat screen TV.
