Reviewed 21 October 2014

This hotel must have changed owners because even though the hotel is sketchy (what do you expect for $50-$75 a night) the management and employees were always pleasant and helpful, which made up for the old musty rooms. This experience was terrible. I had a bunch of cash on me because of a purchase I did not make and wanted...

We apologize for the many problems you experienced during your stay with us. Due to many circumstances we have had with customers paying cash and putting a credit card/debit card on file in substitution for the $50, we have to take a cash deposit if you are paying cash. I know this may sound ridiculous, but bare with us because...

The room was way over priced, towels and sheets had lots of stains on them, the bed creaked, and you can here the people moving and talking upstairs. I was not impressed by this place. I would however take it over sleeping in my car.

We apologize that your stay was not as accommodating as you would have liked it to be. We can assure you that the towels we put out in the rooms for our guests are clean, as we do want to represent our business the best possible. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience you may have experienced during your stay. Thank...

When I began my last two years @ Chico State, during the first month in my fall semester I must have stayed at 5 different motels/hotels (the immediate Chico area only) in trying to figure out which had the best value, cleanliness, and overall customer service. Around week 3, I stumbled upon ABVI through my, now traditional, weekend search for...

I started at the hotel over the weekend and was very happy. The room was nice and clean. The guy in the office helped me find nice places to eat. I would recommend this hotel to anything coming into town for a visit. Everything is in walking distance. I also felt very safe at the hotel with someone on duty...

Honestly, I was a little hesitant about this hotel just because the reviews made it sound horrible. However, most reviews regarding Chico hotels/motels were pretty bad too. I decided to take a risk on this one since it was closer to the downtown area. Everything went well and I had no problems during my four-day stay. The room and bathroom...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your honest review. We do agree with some of your points that both compliment and criticize. Our rooms are clean and our staff is courteous. The price is affordable and the value is great. We have replaced any curtains that aged and didn't function properly. As far as the T.V.'s go, they are a work...

Reviewed 15 September 2013

I am torn between 2 and 3 stars for this room. Upon arrival the man at the check-in was very friendly. Hotels.com booked us in a smoking and he asked us if we wanted non-smoking instead and I said yes. He quickly changed that. So I would give that a 4 star rating. Upon walking by each room, the windows...

Stayed here for the first time last week. Good location, decent room but the whole motel turned into a college party lasting well past 3 am. Yes, it was a holiday weekend but really....should we all be subject to screaming, loud music and swimming in the pool all hours? Sorry, ABV but you don't get my business again! You didn't...

Dear Guest, we are very sorry you weren't satisfied with your stay. Labor day weekend was a bit noisy, but it was not party central. There was no loud music playing and no one getting out of hand. The pool sign that we have posted is actually a requirement from the county for all pools, not just ours. We certainly...

The staff was friendly, the check-in was prompt, and the room had everything I needed. Also convenient was the location: it's nearby downtown where all the restaurants are, banks, the post office - all within walking distance.

Somehow I got booked in to a smoking room even though I've never smoked and always ask for non-smoking rooms, but I ended up with a smoking room. When I asked for a non-smoking room the person behind the counter said she couldn't do it. She spent several minutes on the computer and gave up. OK, it was late, I...

Dear Travelor, We are very sorry to hear about your experience. We encourage everyone booking, especially from third party sites like expedia, orbitz etc.. to always make sure that you are booking a non-smoking room. A lot of times these sites only guarantee you a room, but they won't guarantee a non-smoking room. If we have a non-smoking room available,...
