The rooms were very clean and well kept. The staff was excellent--really liked them.
The location in town was unfortunate, but they did a great job maintaining the premises considering the location.
Room was clean and had all amenities, iron and cable t.v. - though an older hotel, room was well kept and neat.
Clean, well fixture and comfortable. It was a cool place to stay at.
The gentleman working the front desk was very helpful. He happily got us extra pillows, a blanket and toothpaste.
Although the room was supposed to be non-smoking, it still carried a thick smell of cigarette smoke.
At the price, I fully expected this place to be nasty. I only needed a place to pass out. What a very nice motel!
it was a good price and a place to sleep.
This motel is extremely dated. Our non-smoking room smelled of old cigarettes. The bathroom was awful. When you took a shower the bath tub filled with water and you were standing in 6 inches of water by the time you finished your shower. You had to wait a couple of hours for the tub to drain so the next person could take their shower. When I was at the sink brushing my teeth the room next door took a shower and the next thing I knew I was standing in a puddle of water. The water had leaked from their bathroom wall into our bathroom and my socks were soaked. We had several light bulbs burned out. We could hear all the street noise of the vehicles going down the main road and the train blowing its whistle in the middle of night. You could also hear the TV from the rooms on both sides. We had a very restless night and couldn't wait to leave. If we could have found another place to stay we would have checked out but all the other places had sold out and we had to stick it out.
The staff was very nice and easy to work with. It is nice but very old.
I travel to Chico a lot and have stayed at almost everyplace listed. From the Hotel Diamond to the Vagabond. Don't get me wrong. This is not a luxury place -- but for $ dollars - it is a great value. Room was small - but about the same size as at the Holiday Inn. However, but the closet was big and the shower was surprisingly nice - large and tiled. Location is ok - town is a short walk away. The owner's are friendly and helpful. Bottom line - not the best place in town, but with proper expectations - definatily one of the best values.
We have stayed at the Budget Inn Of Chico several times, our son is a student at nearby CSU Chico which is in one mile distance to the Budget Inn Of Chico. The staff is super friendly and helpful and the location can't be beat, besides being close to the University it is in one mile distance to all the restaurants and shops downtown Chico has to offer. Our last 3 stays have been in the deluxe room, it is huge and well kept and at a very affordable rate. The a/c works great which is important in the extreme heat of the Central Valley. We would recommend the Budget Inn Of Chico to anyone traveling to our through Chico
My husband and I were looking for a quick, well priced romantic get-a-way......not what we got. The room was clean but not well maintained at all.Clerk was rude! We will not go back.....yeah it's $** a night but so not worth it!!! I recommend you going ANYWHERE ELSE.
Perfect for someone who doesn't want to spend much. The bed was a bit too firm for me but overall it was fine for the price. The room had a weird smell at first, but then my girlfriend reminded me ''it's a hotel room, what do you expect?'' And she was right.
Unfortunately, this hotel seems to think that low budget means dirty. The hotel owners are nice people but this is the dirtiest place I have ever seen. It hasn't been properly cleaned ever. I don't think inexpensive/budget should mean filthy dirty accomodations. I checked out a day early and stayed elsewhere.
