This place was relaxing, quaint & clean. No frills, but everything you need for a stop in Alturas. Not just clean, VERY clean. The chairs outside each room afford a comfy seat to enjoy the sunset, and even they were clean.

Very small quiet hotel that was clean with the managers on site. I woke up and had coffee while watching the deer graze from close by. I wish I had more time to stay and enjoy this place. Super low prices. I would stay here over any chain place. I'm hoping to have future business trips to this location so... More

This was the second time I have stayed at this motel. Both times I have found the place very clean. When I stay in Alturas, California I enjoy this quaint, but fairly updated and definitely clean motel. On this occasion I noticed that the desk clerk was not the same person as the previous stay. His demeanor was okay at... More

First, the Rim Rock has not changed hands. I have been the General manager here for close to 8 years now and yes I am helping them to retire! Second, you choose to think I did not believe you when that is not the case. I had to do a physical inventory to verify that the maid did not do... More

We love road trips, and take them often. Thanks to Tripadvisor, we now feel very comfortable checking out the reviews of places we would not ordinarily stay, and staying there. I love finding spots like the Rim Rock Motel. It is much more interesting than a chain hotel, and we are more in touch with the local flavor of the... More

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.

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
