Best Western Trailside Inn
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Alturas
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Very Comfy Beds and Linens! Also very clean rooms! All you basically need is here, a coffee maker with coffee, microwave, fridge, etc. I also heard its the nicest hotel in the very small town of Alturas, CA.

Room Tip: Had upper level room. No noise from upstairs due to this.

We are so glad you enjoyed the stay with us. There are coffee makers in all the rooms, sorry you didn't see it. They are the single cup type, and most of our rooms have microwaves and fridges in them except for the rooms upstairs with two double beds.
We hope you will come and again and stay with us.

It was a dark and foggy evening when we arrived in Alturas. Snow flurries all around. Come morning we could see some overly scenery surrounding the town, but on arrival you couldn't see past the towns edge... Alturas on its own ain't a scenic destination. But the motel was nice, had a lot of trucks from a pipeline company staying there. The room was comfortable, and they gave me hand fills of coffee bags upon request. I liked it. Nothing fancy but on a bleak cold night, it was a nice refuge.

I enjoyed everything about the Trailside Inn, from the reservation call to my checkout. The staff was consistently capable and pleasant. The room was spacious, comfortable, and clean... everything I'd hoped for.

If I had to complain about anything, I'd say the complimentary breakfast bar was a little short on choices.

I'll be returning to Alturas for business, and will make a point of staying there again.

Went to Alturas for work and found the motel much better than anticipated. The room was clean, well kept, and updated. Bring your own shampoo if staying more than one night or buy some at the Rite-Aid nearby. The flat screen TV was nice and had a range of channels. The room had a table and chairs to bring breakfast back from the small breakfast room as well. The breakfast was not great, although the waffle machine was nice. The heater worked well even in -8 degree weather. There is a good Italian place down the street, Antonio's. The pizza with the thick crust was delicious! All roads lead to the Niles, the local bar...

Affordable and very clean motel. Cody, the desk clerk was very nice and very helpful. Only tip, try to verify your room doesn't have an "unknown" A/C noise that can be a bit bothersome at night. The noise went away shortly after we went to bed, so it wasn't an issue. Cody did his best, but just couldn't figure the cause of the noise, and bless his heart, he discounted the room.

This location is clean and comfortable in a rural area. The staff was friendly. The rooms and bed linens were better than many where I stayed at more higher end locations. The breakfast was inviting. The food fresh and always in good supply as was the excellent coffee. If one is passing through, this is an excellent place to stay. The only drawback is the lack of good restaurant close by.

Not a lot in Alturas to chose from, we picked best western. Room clean, people amazingly nice my only complaint is wifi foes not stay connected. Everything else is great ..house keeping does come around early and if you have the "do not disturb " sign up... Doesn't matter they still knock. Now everything else is great
