“Disappointing Dinner!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

The Niles Hotel is a beautiful old historic building. We traveld to Alturas to have dinner there because of good reviews we had heard from others. However, our experience was not a good one. Our meal and service was good up to when the main course was served. Two of us ordered the Rib Eye steak and when it came was a large portion cut. But never in my life have I ever seen a rib eye that was more than half all fat. Both steaks were like this. I kept trimming fat away, hoping to reach solid meat. Meanwhile my salad plate was heaping with fat content. After only getting about 5 bites and those without any flavor, I gave up trying to cut on it and asked for a doggie bag. Needless to say, we won't be going back. For the price of the meal and the quality of the main course, it just wasn't there!

What a beautiful old hotel. The owners are slowly reviving this gem in north eastern California. This is a no frills hotel. No tv's or radios in the rooms. If you want to take a step back in time then stop in and check it out. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. There is a sports bar downstairs with tv ad spirits. The staff were all wonderful and helpful. The dining room does turn into a karaoke bar on Fridays so if you want to sleep I suggest getting a room elsewhere or bring your earplugs or you can join them downstairs for some fun. Staying hear is like taking a walk into the past and there are plenty of old photos of the area to look at throughout the hotel. There is also a coffee shop downstairs complete with Starbucks coffee and some good pastries. Alturas is an enjoyable stay and the area has a lot to offer with wildlife a plenty. Enjoy your stay!

We stayed at the over 100 yr. old hotel in Alturas. They are in the process of remodeling and restoring it. It was a wonderful experience. The food we had served at our banquet was exceptional and the staff never quit working the whole weekend we were there.

We were asked if we had seen the ghosts the night before. Sadly we missed those......

Room Tip: We had the jungle room which was fun. A little noisy, but who cared.
