I was a student at Chico State graduating in 1965, and I remember this property as the Thunderbird Lodge. THAT sign still displays at the street entrance, but this is now a "Quality Inn," and it certainly lives up to that name. Our room was as nicely furnished and maintained as any "5 star" property, and the breakfast service had waffles and sausages in addition to rolls and toast. The OJ was MUCH better than at most of the places we have stayed, and the staff was highly responsive.
We drove the 100 miles to Chico in and ELECTRIC CAR and the manager allowed us to plug-in (110v) and leave our vehicle charging overnight. I spoke to him to suggest installing 220v plugs for even faster charging, and he seemed interested in following up on this. We would stay here again on a future visit for sure!
