“Throwback to 19th century California with elegance and feel of the past, A great two night stay at the Imperial. This is a very small town, but great food at the hotel and a couple other places within a block or two. Retains its charm from the late 1800s; with downstairs bar, upstairs rooms, and some with balcony overlooking the front street (our room). Clean, comfortable, with seating, internet (there might have been a tv), and coffee in the morning. Quiet even with revelers downstairs, and the charm that comes only from a one-of-a-kind place. If you are coming to this part of California from overseas, do yourself a favor and stay here out of the chain hotels … after the areas great Zins and food, we slept quite well.” – Joel from Chico, tripadvisor.com
