Check-in staff was not at all friendly or accommodating. I requested a 1st floor room as I use a cane and walker. He refused, saying they were full that night. It was very apparent then and later that night that this was not true. He just didn't want to be bothered. Room was so small that when someone was working... More

We booked a midweek rental for a decent price. Info includes continental breakfast and free wifi. WiFi is only for one person in room, second person cost an extra fee. What? The price to them for the service is set no matter how many users. This smacks of a money grab from the owners... The room was decent, the desk... More

This was a very nice hotel. I haven't stayed at many Best Westerns but this was a pleasant surprise. It has a very nice look when you pull in, very clean property and nice flowers everywhere. The staff was polite and helpful. My room was comfortable and had a microwave and fridge. I wish it had an elevator as I... More

I am currently staying in a downstairs unit at the BW Trailside Inn. May have to be here for two weeks, but the motel seems well run and clean. The bed is one of the more comfortable I have slept in at any hotel/motel. The bathroom is a little small, but clean and well cared-for. Good WiFi connection. The breakfast... More

Everything went pretty smooth. Front desk staff was courteous when we checked in, and in providing suggestions for local restaurants, etc. Our room was clean and organized. The beds were good. The pool area was also clean and well maintained. We had a room near the front of the motel, and we never really heard alot of truck noise from... More

It's located in a beautiful area. But forget about staying here if you like to sleep past 7am. Seems like the policy about being courteous to fellow guests doesn't apply to some motorcyclists who just must fire up their machines, rev them continuously while they let them idle for -- in our experience over 1/2 hour. It's got to be... More

Dear Bill W, I am sorry to hear that you were so disappointed in your stay with us. Yes, motorcycles and diesel trucks are loud and especially since we are an outdoor corridor. We had an unsualy amount of motorcycles that morning, so yes it was loud when they decided to leave. In regards to the staff not caring, that... More

We were here working with the National Forest and since we had to stay an extended period of time, the staff was very helpful in helping us with restaurants and places to see on our "off" time. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

This was a simple and small best western. Clean and worked fine for us on a one night stay when driving cross country. Recommend eating a real breakfast at the Niles hotel a few blocks down the street.

I spent many nights on the road for vacation reasons and needed some much needed sleep. My husband and I knew that staying at a Best Western we would be guaranteed a good night sleep on a comfortable bed. This was our second choice of locations as it was about 60 miles out of our way and Lakeview Oregon was... More

Have stayed here several times, have family in Alturas. Always clean, courteous staff, very accommodating for special requests. The only drawback is the narrow parking spots because we drive a large SUV or F250 pickup when we stay there.
