We held our reception at this location and overall, had a great experience. The venue itself is very nicely laid out, beautiful (requires little decoration) and is conveniently located in downtown ... Read more Chico. Certainly, you could probably find a cheaper option in town, but there were a number of perks to using this venue. For example, the on-site manager and event coordinator Dawnielle, did an excellent job of decorating the reception room. Meaning that we came in the day before, dropped off some boxes, gave a very general description and she took it from there. You have multiple consultations that allow you to work out the details of the reception timeline, their event coordinator provides thoughtful input along the way. In addition, for a very small price ($50), they will pack up all of your stuff for you the night of the wedding and have it ready for pick up the next day. That being said, our wedding (and the days leading up to it) were far less stressful because of some of these perks. One reviewer commented that the food prepared by the on-site caterers was bad. All I can say is the menu and chef have either changed, or some people have impossible standards. My husband and I, plus all of our guests, loved the food. It would be nice if a reasonable, small tasting were included in the venue fee (since it does cost extra to use an outside caterer), it was sort of a bummer to pay out of pocket for that. But nevertheless, we have no regrets about using their catering. Our final venue price was consistent with what was estimated from the get go. Don't let other reviews on this site sway you, just be conscientious about what you're willing to spend and be up front. If the price looks too extreme, cut back where you can and ask them to remove certain items from the estimate before the big day. This is what we did and we were not met with any hostility nor inflexibility. Great venue, helpful and professional staff, I highly recommend the Chico Event Center.
