We are in the process of exploring alternatives to the big chain motels, and a summer road trip on Highway 395 from So Cal to Washington State gave us a perfect opportunity to do just that. We've been reading the reviews and booking in places we would never have thought about staying in before, and those reviews paid off in... More

Picked this motel because of reviews here on TA and because the price was so low. Actually turned out to be fine for one night...except...the air conditioner. It was so noisy we couldn't have it on during the night. We cooled the room down before going to bed and it was fine. Room was VERY clean, bed was comfortable. Oh... More

There are not a lot of choices for motels in Alturas, and we relied on Trip Advisor to make our decision. The room was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable although the bathroom and sink was pretty small and didn't have a lot of counter space.

Probably the cleanest place we have ever stayed. Room rate was good, even before I found out the quoted price included tax. Room was good size with plenty of extra space, chairs, counters, etc. to put luggage & food bag & other stuff we travel with. Bathroom had counter space and a ceiling fan. Microwave & fridge in room. Very... More

The Rim Rock Motel is on the eastern edge of greater downtown Alturas, a tiny town in the middle of a vast nothingness. From our motel room door, we could see the Warner Mountains to the east, as well as the open space between us and the mountains. The scenery is austerely beautiful. We preferred it to Klamath Falls, which... More

Alturas is cattle country, big and open with more motels than restaurants. Tom and Rhonda are doing their best to make this older facility as clean and peaceful as possible. We were not bothered by traffic on the highway or the one freight train that we noticed. Yes, the bathroom was compact and the deodorant pungent but overall it is... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this little motel. Rooms were small but very clean and had everything we needed. The manager/owner was very friendly. Deer came across the road at dusk. We slept well. We also recommend the Wagon Wheel Restaurant for delicious comfort food.

I thought the tiled bathrooms were absolutely awesome, both the showers & bathtubs, with the shower gel & shampoo on the shower wall, but the toilets could have been higher like disabled ones & maybe bars to hold on to? Excellent location as well & I also appreciated their surveillance equipment, but my situation was such that I stayed there... More

You were checked out. The maid knocked with no response, your vehicle was not present, the maid entered the room to find all personal belongings were gone and the key was in the room to which the maid collected along with the trash left in the room (in which your spoon was found be me). Regarding the law not allowing... More

Although I'd been in Alturas previously, my recent trip was the first that required multiple days - and I couldn't have selected a better motel. The owners were cordial, graciously arranged for my arrival despite the late hour (abound 12:30-12:40 AM), and provided what was probably the cleanest/neatest room I've experienced in many years of travel. Alturas is a small... More

We are so very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us especially with our VERY cold climate. For a few days, we were colder than Danali in Alaska. More
