Stayed one night in this motel for sleeping only (no breakfast offered). Reception staff was friendly and fast and gave us a room as far as possible from the traffic noise. The room must have known better times but was clean and quiet. The price was about right and the motel suffices for those who look for nothing more but... More

Needed a place to sleep for one night. A friend recommended this place and it was great. I did not have reservations but since it was a weekday I thought I would take my chances. Staff was very accommodating and was able to get me a room. This place is a old hotel but very clean. The place can accommodate... More

It is hard to beat a comfortable, cozy, quiet room for under $80 per night. The rooms are clean, the internet signal adequate to great (sepending on time of day), has Frig and Microwave, and servicable coffee.

We like supporting family owned businesses as often as we can and it's hard for us to leave a 3 star rating for Rim Rock. First of all, its location is not too bad, it's about a 20 minute walk from downtown Alturas. It has lovely grounds with a grill and area for your horses. And you can play horseshoe... More

having recently stayed here from Australia we enjoyed the atmosphere of this motel/RV park. The surrounding mountains looked great and a visit to the lake and ride to the top of the mountain was well worth the trip. This is a hidden part of USA but I would recommend a visit as the scenery is close to equivalent of better... More

The motel is located just outside of the main town. It is quiet, but well within walking distance to anything you need. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are nice and clean. Would recommend to anyone.

We are planning a Lincoln Hwy vacation, so we wanted to experience a motel "the way they used to be" when traveling off the beaten path and through small towns, not freeways and chain hotels - a motel from the hey-day of our parents. We found that perfect experience in Alturas CA at the Rim Rock Motel. The room was... More

Rooms were clean and nice. The garden has a beautiful fountain and a wonderful log swing facing the sunrise. The location was great on a trip through Oregon. I would recommend people stop here on their way through Alutera.

This is an older motel, but a really nice place with beautiful surroundings. The room was clean and smelled clean, had soft full-size towels, a fridge, microwave and in-room "micro" coffeemaker (we bring our own pot when we travel, need more than 1/2-cup in the morning). The older TV worked just fine. Friendly staff and service, even a beautiful garden... More

What a great little motel! Located on Hwy 395 on the edge of Alturas, this motel was clean, quiet and well appointed rooms. Great views! Nice to just sit outside and watch the world go by with the views surrounding this place. 3 minute drive to food and shopping or you can walk easily 1 minute to the Basque restaurant... More
