Staff was very helpful with some uncertainties in my travel times. All the things you would expect in a well run Best Western but the staff I talked with put it over the top. Not many BW's in their corner of California but it turned out one was enough.

Hello, wedgewa... Thanks so much for reaching back out to us on our TripAdvisor page today! We agree with you, a hotel is just a building; however, it's our people that make our hotel a temporary home away from home. We appreciate your business and hope you'll keep us in mind on your next excursion from the State of Washington!... More

BW was a great experience and I plan to use them every time i visit my family in Alturas CA.. The hotel is kept very nicely and the staff are very nice. The pool is great also especially since it gets very hot there.

Clean room, comfortable bed. Pots of beautiful pink petunias all around. No fridge or microwave. Nice pool with pool towels at desk. Good breakfast including hard-boiled eggs and quality apples as well as waffles and cereals. Attentive, pleasant breakfast service. We would stay here again.

Older style motel, clean good sized rooms, friendly staff, nice pool area. Good continental breakfast, and good amenities in room. Good value. Will stay there again if in the area. Close to shops and the downtown area which has a lot of character.

Very clean and great staff make this place a pleasure to stop in at. The location is right on the main street, and it has everything you need for a stop-over while traveling through Alturas. The pool is great too!

Having stayed now twice at the Trailside Inn we are very satisfied with the helpful staff and accommodations. As a couple with some handicaps we were offered a well appointed equal access room. Ask for it if you have that issue. Breakfast is fresh and nutritious only lacking the sausage and scrambled eggs so commonly offered.

We had the nicest, most polite reception from a young woman when checking in. The hanging flower baskets outside the hotel made the otherwise plain building attractive. We were disappointed with our room. The A/C was located near the head of our bed so we could not use it. Fortunately, the window opened so we did not use the A/C.... More

There are not many chain hotels available in this area when you are traveling through. This hotel was clean and comfortable. They offer a decent enough free breakfast. The WiFi worked fine. You can walk to some restaurants. (I recommend the Thai one a few blocks North.) It is on highway 395 so there is going to be road noise.... More
