Our very first B&B stay could not have been more perfect. The owners Margo and Tom run a beautiful home. They are both extremely warm and friendly, like two of your favorite family members would feel, with great stories to tell and share about the area. Highlights: -The house is a gorgeous 1906 Victorian that has all the details from...

The Goodman house was the perfect place to end our mini-moon. The house was a beautiful historic home, set on beautiful grounds. Our room was very comfortable, and outside the room, there was evening Port that was left out for us, and a coffee cart. I think our favorite part of the stay was eating outside on the newly renovated...

We had plans to spend a week in Chico visiting family and looked for lodging. The price for a room at the Goodman House was comparable to local hotels and we decided to give it a shot. Boy, am I glad that we did! The house is beautiful and the rooms are extremely comfortable. The owners, Tom and Margo, are...

During a recent trip to the lively college town of Chico Ca., I decided to forgo the usual chain hotels and upon recommendation from a friend, gave the Goodman House Bed and Breakfast a try. The home, a turn of the century craftsman style was warm and inviting with period furnishings and memorabilia form days gone by. The bedroom was...

Went up to Chico for my nephew to visit the college. It happened to be the same weekend as some FFA event. All the hotels to stay in town were booked so I began to check out alternatives. The Goodman house had one room left for the night! The room was small, but the house was built in 1909 if...

I checked through the various hotels in Chico. Oh, there was a Marriott on the south end of Chico, far from everything at about $129 per night. And there were various old motels in town. Then there was the Goodman House. for the same price as the Marriott, I stayed at a wonderful bed and breakfast for 2 nights and...

Can't rave about this place, but the only alternatives in town were low end chain hotels. Good location, quiet, clean. old bathroom ( my husband didn't like that) and not much room to spread out. But otherwise no complaints. Not sure if my somewheat mediocre review is of the B&B or Chico.. Chico doesn't seem to have much to speak...

We returned for the third time when we moved our son into CSUChico. After eight hours of traveling we look forward to some pampering. Margo and Tom are totally attuned to our comfort: outstanding beds and linens, meticulously clean rooms, and delectable breakfasts created with our restrictions/preferences in mind. I was even treated to mint tea brewed with mint straight...

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Goodman House. The house and garden area are lovely, hosts Margo and Tom and daughter Jessica were wonderfully helpful and the location is fantastic--easy walking distance to downtown restaurants, the Bidwell House and CSUChico. We brought our bikes and rode all over Chico from their home. As a special bonus, they have...
