Very clean and comfortable room at the Rim Rock just outside Alturas. The owner/manager is extremely friendly and helpful, making sure our stay was enjoyable. Pride in ownership is on display for the both the motel and the surrounding grounds. Short and easy drive into the downtown area to find a restaurant. I would certainly recommend this motel if traveling... More

It was like a trip to the past. I checked in and recieved a real brass key which was attached to a vintage hotel plastic holder. I was assigned room 33. The room had a king sized bed, a coffee maker, a small refrigerator, a hair dryer, a large flat panel television and an alarm clock. The Wi-Fi was weak... More

Thank you for such a nice review. In regards to the WiFi, it's a matter of picking the strongest router in relation to your room. Due to the size of our complex, we have several access points to choose from, one of which was 30 feet from room # 33, Another that was forty feet. The one I suspect you... More

Decided to turn a day trip into an overnighter. Didn't want to stay in a "cookie cutter" motel even though you can usually depend on what you're getting. So we found the Rim Rock motel on Google. Great, quaint place. We don't require a lot in a place to stay, but cleanliness is an absolute must!! This is an older... More

We are so very thankful for your great review on such a very frustrating day for ALL in Alturas. Even the local paper had to make an emergency run 90 miles to Klamath Falls to get the paper printed for the next day. Next time through, we hope to see you. More

What a great little hotel! I have stayed at some very cheap (and expensive) hotels. $7 per night in Costa Rica once. The Rim Rock was by far the best cheap hotel I have ever stated at.. Absolutely spotless, funky, quiet, comfortable. Very nice bed. I remember places like this on Route 66, many years ago. I will return.

Enjoyed our stay very much. Room was very clean and had very little noise from the highway. Would recommend this motel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Alturas, CA. It is close to restaurants and the market.

This motel is a little bit out of the town. I had made a reservation but when I checked in was asked if I had AAA or AARP and was told it would be cheaper than I had been told on the phone. A very nice surprise! The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and parking was outside... More

Away from the chain hotel which is nice. The very hospitable manager put us in an end room in the new section, so I cannot advise on the other section. But if it is anything like our room, it will receive a great review. We had a large room, fresh lovely linens, nice bath towels, comfortable beds and all amenities... More

We really had a nice stay at the Rim Rock. It's an old business, been here for ages. But the place has been updated...nice comfortable beds, a good shower, very clean rooms. The staff is very helpful, they even let me use their hose to wash my car, which was quite dirty from a trip to the Nevada desert. They... More

I stayed here on the way to TTITD at the recommendation of a friend. We had a late start from Seattle, and thus ended up arriving rather late at night. We called a head, and they worked out a way for us to check in after their office closed. It was comfortable, the AC worked, and was exactly what we... More

We stayed at Rim Rock on our way to Reno. This was our first stay in Alturas and due to Trip Advisor reviews we chose to stay at Rim Rock. The reviews are spot on. We had a very clean and comfortable king room. I don't think we have ever stayed in such an impeccably clean room. We normally stay... More
