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

Hubby travels for his job and most of the time I get to come along. This is/was the fourth night of a trip that took us from Portland, to Weaverville, to Portola, then Susanville and today Alturas. Everything nice and lovely said about this quaint little motel is spot on. Can't thank you enough for making our last night on... More

A beautiful motel and maintained to the highest standards with some lovely homely touches in the room. Everything is spotlessly clean and fresh and one gets the impression that nothing is left to get tired and old before it's replaced. Each room has seats outside with a small table which is great for relaxation after a days hiking/touring. We found... More

What's up with the owner, Mr. Price? My wife and I (we are a conventional-looking couple in our 50s) stopped for a room late on a Sunday night. While checking us in Mr. Price started making insulting comments about the nearby Burning Man festival and by implication anyone who attended. Seemed strange but we were tired and I shrugged off...

After review of the security video of the evening you checked in, of which I am more than happy to provide you or anyone requesting, a copy, Mr. Price was very cordial to you. AT NO POINT did Mr. Price state anything regarding any person attending Burning Man at all. THE ONLY reference was a question regarding how long it... More

Rim Rock Motel added a $25 charge to my credit card without informing me, after I had stayed there. The place is a little roadside motel along Hwy 299 like any other.

We have owned and operated the Rim Rock Motel for over 30 years since 1973. Since the beginning of "Burning Man" in 1986, we have received a number of "Burners" as guests each year mostly without incident until the last 10 years. Within these last ten years, as the amount of people attending burning man, each year, grows, we have... More

I was traveling from the Coast to Denver on a motor cycle and, unlike my style, did NOT have a reservation for this particular night. I checked out a couple of other properties in town before discovering the Rim Rock. Fortunately those were booked and I found this GEM! It is Excellent for Motels of this era and style. You... More

This is a motor court type motel that has been well taken care of. The rooms are bight and airy. The air conditioning was on when we arrived which felt great. I love the front porch feel of the place. Most of the guests sit in front of their rooms in the evening and chat. The room was quiet and... More
