Visited Chico for the weekend and booked a room at the Goodman House. This was my first time staying in a B&B and I am so glad I did. The owners were so nice and accommodating. The grounds were beautifully manicured and the breakfast in the morning was amazing! I would definitely stay here again.

I recently enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Goodman House with a group of couples for a friends reunion. We were absolutely thrilled with the experience from start to finish. The hosts, Tom and Margo are so gracious and accommodating. We relaxed on the patio and enjoyed incredibly delicious breakfasts outside as well. The rooms are adorable, comfortable and very clean....

The Goodman House has become our home away from home when we visit our children and friends. The location is conveniently located to the downtown area. The rooms are nicely appointed and clean. Tom and Margo are very friendly and gracious hosts. The breakfasts are always superb and plentiful!

We made a last minute detour to Chico and fortunately for us, the Goodman House had one room available. We couldn't have picked a better place if we had searched months in advance. Clean, modern bathroom, convenient to town, private parking, wifi, a fantastic breakfast, accommodating hosts, what more can I say!

The Goodman House is quiet, clean and managed beautifully. I highly recommend it as a perfect place for a quiet get-away near downtown Chico. Bring a bicycle or great shoes since downtown, the CSUC campus and beautiful Bidwell Mansion isn't far.

The Goodman house is a beautifully kept house from 1906. All the rooms are tastefully decorated and have their own bathrooms. The hosts are very friendly, and the breakfasts were great. If they have availability, this is a much better option than the bigger places in Chico.
