I stayed here with family in July of 2013. We rented a 2-bedroom suite on the 2nd floor. The room was located smack up against the elevator and across from the ice machine, but to our surprise, we heard no noise from either! However, the walls and ceiling are pretty thin, so we did hear LOTS of noise from the family above us. (Luckily they quieted down around 11pm, and didn't get up 'til 7am.)
The desk staff and cleaning staff are very friendly and welcoming. The folks working in the buffet kitchen are super nice.
The beds are comfortable, there is lots of storage space for clothes, the air conditioner works well and quickly (although a little loudly), and the bathrooms are spotless. The water pressure in the shower is fine. The soap/shampoo comes from a large dispenser on the shower wall, which I like-- no waste from those little plastic bottles! There's an iron and ironing board in the closet, coffee maker by the sink, and a mini-fridge. No safe in the room we stayed in.
There's an evening "wine/beer" hour with light snacks, and a hot buffet breakfast every day. Not the greatest food in the world, but hey, it comes with the price of the room and is convenient. You're within walking distance of quite a few chain restaurants and a big shopping mall, and the Sierra Nevada Brewery and restaurant is just on the other side of the freeway. (My husband and I walked over there.) The downtown Chico area is about a ten-minute drive away, and Bidwell Park is similarly close.
The worst thing I can say about this place is that the carpet was dirty-- you couldn't really see the dirt, but I wore a pair of clean white socks one morning and walked around the room for a couple of minutes, and my socks ended up completely black. For such an otherwise clean place, this was kind of surprising.
We will definitely stay here again-- we've stayed in four other hotels in Chico, and this one is by far the quietest and most comfortable.
