Reviewed 5 March 2012

We stay at this Holiday Inn every year for the Bidwell Classic 5k/Half Marathon. Until last Saturday, we have always enjoyed a decent buffet breakfast prior to the race. The website says there is a complimentary buffet, but the front desk staff said they no longer offer it. Our friend pulled up the website on his smartphone and gently demanded that staff needed to honor the website information, and that this was the deciding factor between this hotel and another one in town. The woman seemed perturbed, not sure if it was at us or the web or what. She gave us the vouchers for a bacon or sausage/egg/potatoes/toast/coffee or juice breakfast, which was plenty, but she had to enroll us in the Holiday Inn rewards program. Not a big deal at all for all of us, just wanted to point this out to others who may be deciding on this based on the savings of the breakfast. The rooms were clean, good pillows, the bedcoverings seemed fresh, and I like the shampoo/lotion sets. After the first day, we hung up a bath towel we wanted to keep, and left one on the floor as is normal hotel etiquette now. The maid removed the one on the floor but didn't replace it...odd. We will probably stay there again, but will be bringing food and stocking the fridge.

Room Tip: We stayed in 121 which is only one door down from the housekeeping room- noisy very early in the mor...

We apologize for your disappointment of not having a breakfast buffet. We do currently offer a full breakfast menu that is available to all guests for the prices on the menu. I have also made sure that we do not advertise a breakfast buffet any longer. Thank you for your comments and we look forward to having you stay with us again.

I used to visit Chico for work at least twice a year and would always stay at the Holiday Inn. Rooms are nice and comfortable. The hotel is close to campus and the freeway.

I stayed here one night on a recent trip to Chico and the surrounding area and was very pleased with my choice of lodging. The young lady at the front desk was pleasant and helpful, I personally had no issues with my room; in fact I found it very clean and comfortable, and I even got a decent night's sleep, which doesn't always happen when I stay at a hotel. The hotel was not very crowded, and when I asked for a quiet room, I think the young lady at the front desk went out of her way not to put me right next to an occupied room. So my room was quiet and my stay here relaxed. The wi-fi was good, so I could do a little work on the computer. I did eat at the hotel restaurant and tried the Indian food. The samosa appetizers were very good, and the tandoori chicken was okay. In the morning, I asked to purchase a cup of coffee to go and was told coffee was free. A small thing, but nice nonetheless. I did not get to Sierra Nevada Brewing when I was here, so I guess I have unfinished business in Chico, and I will be coming back and likely staying here.

We switched to a room here after having a not-so-great night's stay at the nearby Super 8. The room was really nice, comfortable beds, and nice amenities/toiletries. The service was great and I got a decent AAA discount. You get a choice of firm or soft pillows on the bed which is a nice touch... I thought for a good, quiet night's sleep is was well worth the extra money over the Super 8.

Only complaint is the lack of a complimentary breakfast, which I think, when you are paying $100 per night you should expect to have...

We held a seminar at this hotel and I was very pleased at the facility and the service provided by the staff. They all had great attitudes and were very helpful. We will definitely consider holding a meeting there again.

We stayed at the holiday inn for 2 nights whilst visiting friends nearby. We had a room with 2 double beds. They were the most comfortable beds ever! You were also given a choice of pillows hard or soft which is a must. Not much to do in the hotel but functional for our brief stay only used rooms to sleep in. Would stay again

The Holiday Inn in Chico, is one of the nicer hotels the city has to offer. It has a lounge and restaurant (food was awful, would recommend Denny's next door instead.) on the lobby floor. They also offer conference and meeting accommodations. The hotel is conveniently located near 99 and about a 10 minute drive to downtown. The only drawback I found to the Holiday Inn was value. While the rooms were nice, they were not worth what I paid. The room was clean, but had a strange odor. I also felt it should offer more amenities for the price. I also noticed that the walls were thin and could easily hear conversations from the hall and adjoining rooms. The staff seemed very disinterested in serving their guests. Overall if I had a discounted rate I would stay at the hotel again, however if you have to pay full price there are other hotels in Chico that offer more for just about the same money.
