A perfect place to stay while enjoying some of the untouched natural views in California. Staff was very friendly. Very clean and quiet rooms. The breakfast area is cozy with many choices and great hot coffee. I will definitely stay here when I am working and playing in the area.

I realize the options are limited in Alturas, but just keep on driving. Arrived late and was checked into a room that spelled of smoke and some other odor. Was so late at night apparent there was no other available rooms, so just toughed it out. Then received a smoking charge. Haven't touch a cigarette in my life. Place is... More

As per our conversation on the phone, I had no idea about your problem cause you didn't report the incident to anybody on the property. Our front desk is open 24 hours and would have gladly helped you to a fresh clean room so you could of got a great nights sleep. We were not sold out. Also what you... More

First recommendation, don't go to Alturas. But if you can't help it, the Best Western Trailside is probably the best place to stay in town. I've stayed at several other spots locally when traveling for work; none are as good. That's not saying this hotel is great; it's adequate. The room was pretty clean, and the check-in/out process was simple.... More

This Best Western was adequate, nothing negative or really positive. The town of Alturas is a small town and you have limited options. The breakfast was ok, the only hot food was waffles. The bed was older but not bad and the internet was a bit slow and clumsy to connect to but sufficient.

just what we expected: clean, convenient, very affordable. Great for an overnight stop. basic breakfast. woke up to balloons going up right outside our window when we opened the shades. Didn't realize they had a balloon festival. That was fun! WiFi a little sketchy.

Clean rooms, new A/Cs that allow the fan to run (we prefer the white noise) décor a little dated but fine, flat screen tv with good channel selection. If John checks you in, he's the best. Put the do not disturb in the door if you don't want the 9am knock-knock from housekeeping. Good breakfast variety with waffles, cereal, yogurt,... More

Very clean, comfortable room, only lacks outlets for electronics charging. The two queen bed room was very quiet for being on a main road. The beds are very comfortable, and having severe back issues makes me a bit of an expert in this area. The people are awesome, helpful and polite. As a final note, the water from the tap... More

We wouldn't stay at this hotel again. No refrigerator in the room. Parking was terrible. Never was asked if we wanted/needed a room downstairs during reservation phone call. No elevator at the hotel. No one was friendly during check in or check out.

Good place for stopover between crater lake and tahoe, although limited choice in walking for dinner as town is quite strung out. Children enjoyed late night swim, room was quiet and comfortable. Good value and a decent cup of tea in the morning. Served our requirements for that night.
