The front dest attendant/owner of this hotel is a very nice woman who is extremely accommodating. She went above and beyond to make sure myself and my daughter were happy and had everything we needed during our stay. Also, the rates were extremely reasonable!!

We wanted to stay close to downtown Chico, and by accident I had booked Americas Best Value Inn. It was an almost surreal experience. We were received by a very unfriendly clerk for check-in. It seemed that we had interrupted his internet experiences ... Our credit card requires a pin, which our friendly clerk demanded, as the machine would not...

This is the worst place I have ever stayed. We were moved from the room we got at first because the air conditioner didn't work. This room had someone's pocket comb lying on the floor. The next room did have a working air conditioner which was good because the room was 90 degrees because they don't turn on the air...

Thank goodness it was only for one night. The room was in very much need of repair and update. The carpet in front of refrigerator was soaking wet, wouldn't be surprised if there was mildew under the carpet. Wall air conditioner unit worked poorly. When we entered the room it smelled mildewy. Everything tin room was dated. Afraid to turn...

I'd stayed at one other America's Best Value Inn in McAlester, Oklahoma which was quite nice, so we booked this one in Chico. My goodness. Not the same at all. The office was cluttered, the clerk was surly beyond belief and the room was small enough to make me think we were in England. They don't turn the a/c on...

Pros: this motel is located conveniently to downtown Chico and Chico State. The front desk personnel are very helpful and friendly. Cons: it's quite noisy, and the amenities are below what I would expect for a room of this price. Needs some more updating, or a lower price.

We simply needed a place to stay in Chico while visiting friends. But here we not only had clean and functional rooms but particularly we had the warm welcome and care of the owner and staff.

The hotel was clean and accessible. A no frills hotel but provides great comfort. My experience with Josephine was of the greatest customer service experiences i've ever had. I would stay again in a heartbeat if only to experience such great customer service again.
