Stayed one night with a family of 4. Room was nice, clean and quiet, however contrary to the hotel name indicating "suites" the room is not a suite rather a room with sleeper/couch. Free wifi is included. HVAC is loud so turn on before you go to bed.
Hotel is off main highway and parking is free. Very easy walking distance to Costco, Chico mall and a variety of chain restaurants. In addition, Chico State is just one exit away up the highway and only a couple miles away.
Sierra Brewery is also just across the highway and within walking distance if excessive beer drinking is in your plans, however I understand the hotel provides shuttle service to the brewery if you arrange in advance.
One thing that stood out was the management and staff that work there are very friendly, and go out of their way to assist you. Management was willing to negotiate the price of the room and give several options.
Another standout was their free breakfast and happy hour.
Breakfast was offered 5:30am to 10am? and included scrambled eggs, ham, potatoes, toast, fruit salad, cereal, yogurt, coffee, tea, juices and milk. Much better than the standard free continental breakfast offerings at other hotels. This was a great way to start the day.
Happy hour was offered everyday from 5:30pm to 9pm? and included free salad, free soup the day, free drink (wine, beer, soda or juice) and chips. This was a great way to have a drink before or after dinner and made the hotel bar/dining room appear more lively as there were always people in this area during happy hour.
The pool was nice and hot tub nice and hot, however the jets were out of order during the time of our stay. Small clean towels were available poolside.
The fitness room had the typical exercise equipment, overhead television, nice little steam room and sauna, however the sauna was out of order during the time of our stay. Small clean towels were available however no shower facilities.
Overall, a nice place to stay in Chico. Management was also willing to discount the price of the room since we could not use the sauna.
Stayed February 2014, traveled with family
