Stayed there on Thanksgiving night. I should have spent more time investigating my options in Chico. American Inn should be razed. Broken toilet paper holder and towel bars, two towels/no face cloths, one tiny bar of soap, two hangers that appear to have been stolen from someone's luggage, long black hairs on two pillows, had to go to the front...

Booked this hotel for one night via the hotel website. Arrived with the front desk telling me they don't have my reservation, despite me showing them two email confirmations. He was, however after 10 minutes of 'looking up' my reservation, able to provide me with a room. The room was in very bad shape. Windows could not be closed entirely...

This place is so gross!! Me and my boyfriend stayed for two nights in a row in the same room. And by the time the second night was over and it was the day we left we woke up with bites all over us. So itchy and miserable. And I even brought my own comforter and blankets so er didn't...

We stayed at the American Inn only because of its availability on a college-graduation weekend, which meant that motels were gouging guests with outrageous rates. So we ended up paying $150-plus for a miserable lodging experience. This is a very old motel and has been patched up to fool the customer. The rooms and bathrooms are tiny and dated. The...

In chronological order: 1) the male manager and his son snarled at each other and couldn't /wouldn't (??) speak English to each other when they tried to put in my reservation from an online site, which they could not seem to get done. 2) they wouldn't go with me to the room, just gave me the key and waved in...

The room was "non-smoking" and the first thing I saw was burn marks on the chair and room reaked of pot. The shower had no light and just wait to see the bed! Left disgusted! Just wanted to let everyone know your better off sleeping in your car!

Serious...in 56 years of life and 30 years of traveling...this was the single most worst room on the entire planet. My taste is workable...this was hardly. It was totally disgusting. I dont know where to start. The manager was very aggressive and unprofessional to my wife who said one thing "is there a non smoking room?' I guess he doesn't...

First off the room sucked and stank. My own fault I forgot my pillow there, when I called to see if it was turned in I was told that if house keeping did not want it for themselves then they would have thrown it away. What a policy.

I stayed at the motel for two nights. The linens were clean. The room was quiet. The tv worked alright. The room smelled of smoke from a previous person. That is not a big deal to me. I turned on the air conditioner. Harry and his son are working at the front desk. They are not overly talkative. They are...

So if you want a marriott experience this is not it but if you want a place to sleep that is quiet this does just fine. Close to lots if stuff . Save mart round the corner. Gas across the street. Adequate parking. Beds were sufficient . Has a fridge,tv, microwave. Street is close but bring ear plugs and you'll...
